Over the past month or so, while reading many of the blogs I follow, I have stumbled across one little phrase that appears on every mid-week post. What I Ate Wednesday is a sort of bloggie phenomenon created by Jenn over at Peas and Crayons, (If you’ve never checked out Jenn’s blog before, please do! It is super cute and she has so many fun recipes!) After doing more research, I have come to find that I love the idea of WIAW and it seems like a fun blog community event to join! After getting the go ahead on Twitter from Miss Peas and Crayons herself…
I decided what better time than the present to hop on the bandwagon! Here is a summary of WIAW, in case those of you unfamiliar with the idea want to know a little more!
What WIAW isn’t about
Comparison – Judgement – Restriction – Guilt
What WIAW is about
Celebrating one of the glorious things we all have in common: We all eat!
Love it! Here is my first installment of What I Ate Wednesday, and before I begin, let me be honest. It was hard to remember to take pictures! I also realized that Tuesday was not my best day to use for this post. I had meetings all day, so my meals were more like snacks randomly spread throughout the day when I had some free time. None of these meals were all that amazing, but here is a look into my life on a random weekday and what I ate that day! (FYI – I missed the whole concept of veggie month too. Ha I will just have to do a better job planning next week 🙂 )
Breakfast @ 7:15
Quaker Oatmeal Squares, Kashi Go Lean Crunch, Flax Seeds, and Silk Almond Milk
Along with a cup + thermos to-go of coffee. I drink mine straight black through the week, but sometimes on the weekend I like to add a little milk.
Fuji Apple with peanut butter. (Sorry! No picture, but you can imagine what the apple looks like.. 🙂 )
Lunch @ 12:30
Sorry, but this is such a sad lunch! Ha I am actually embarrassed to put it on here! lol
Moving on.. 😉
Snack @ 2:30
Plain Chobani Yogurt 2% & Homemade granola (My mom made it!)
Snack @ 3:30
Okay, this was not planned. However it was Valentine’s Day and my office passed them out to the employees, how could I say no? Not the best will power, but sometimes you just need a heart shaped cookie. 🙂
Dinner @ 6:15
Pork tenderloin, roasted yukon gold potatoes, and roasted broccoli
So there you have it, a day of eats! Not the prettiest presentation, but it got the job done! Also included throughout the day was 9 glasses of water and a Lime La Croix.
How do you split up your meals when you know you won’t have time for a full, sit-down meal?
Do you tend to eat more frequent, smaller meals? Or do you prefer the big 3: Breakfast, lunch and dinner?
What was your favorite treat you had on Valentine’s Day?
