WIAW !

You know those days where you have the SAME schedule so you eat the SAME things because it just works? Well, apparently Tuesday is one of those days. My WIAW’s are getting very repetitive but I promise I eat more than what I blog about for WIAW’s.

Next week I will photograph another day so it gets switched up around here! Lets get started:D

(6:15 am)

007  008

Overnight oats topped with Love Grown Granola and a bit of PB.

(11 am)

Unpictured half a bagel with almond butter and 1/2 banana before Bikram. It was the easiest thing to take on the go and not too heavy before yoga!

(2:45 pm)

010

011

Chocolate-y protein smoothie topped with more Love Grown of course.

In the mix:

  • 5 Ice Cubes
  • 1 frozen banana
  • Mini spoonful cherry preserves (I’d say about 2 tsp. maybe?)
  • 1 scoop chocolate protein powder
  • 1 C. Original Unsweetened Almond Milk
  • 1/2 C. unsweetened chocolate almond milk
  • 1 1/2 tbsp. cocoa powder

(7:30 pm)

020

Extra-lean pork chop, green beans, potato!

What was the best thing you ate yesterday?

Do you tend to eat the same things on certain days?

WIAW

It’s party time once again! ;D

I usually post this earlier but I had two tests this morning that I did excellent in, thank you very much, so I was studying awayyyy.

Yesterday I woke up at the butt-crack of dawn and had some coffee of course followed by overnight oats. Never gets old! So handy for when you don’t have time to prep breakfast in the morning (aka yesterday).

I forgot to take a picture so these are recycled, shhh no one will know 😉 It’s exactly the same as the usual.

  • 1/2 banana, 1/2 peach
  • 1 mini activia yogurt
  • 1/3 C. Rolled Oats
  • 1/3 C. Almond milk
  • 1 tbs. chia seeds
  • Pinch of craisins
  • Dash vanilla
    • Dash cinnamon
    • Pinch shredded coconut

I was absolutely famished when I got home from school so I whipped up something quick.

Bagel thin with 1/2 cheery preserves, 1/2 melted muenster cheese, 1 fried egg.

DSC01526 A bit burnt but still yummy!

DSC01527

Plus an apple.

DSC01087

Apple cutter = best invention ever.

*Insert 6 mile treadmill run similar to this one from Courtney*

011

I did the first 45 minutes then added on for the last 15 to complete 6 miles.

I knew I wasn’t having dinner till later so I had a snack.

DSC01531

There were like 4 almonds left, so I added some peanuts, and Annie’s cheddar bunnies.

DSC01530

My mom got home from the gym a little later than usual so we whipped up something quick and easy.

001

Whole foods (365) pizza. I think it was tomato and pesto. It was really good for a frozen pizza!

002

003

Those were all of my eats from yesterday! I did the small meals spread out as you can see. If you haven’t already, join the party hosted by Jenn!

Favorite pizza toppings?

Do you like cheese and jelly?

Longest distance you ever ran on the treadmill?

I Almost Forgot, WIAW!

Better late than never though Winking smile

Happy Wednesday everyone! It’s crazy to think tomorrow’s already Thursday. Such great news!

I hope everyone’s having a great week.

Here are my eats from last Wednesday!


Breakfast

I started my morning with a favorite of mine. Possibly one of the best discoveries I’ve had from blogging.

DSC01091

Overnight Oats in a Jar! (OOIAJ)

For those of you who are not familiar:

You take an almost empty jar of nut butter, or anything else you might want or have on hand, and make your own concoction of oatmeal and stick it in the fridge over night!

In my mix:

  • 1/3 cup raw rolled oats (I do not cook them first)
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 mini activia yogurt
  • 1 tbs. chia seeds
  • 1/2 banana
  • dash of cinnamon

Then when you leave it in the fridge over night, the oats soak up the liquid and expand.

DSC01090

It may not be the most attractive thing in the world, but definitely something worth trying. I didn’t like them the first time I tried them, but I played around with how I made it and this one works for me the best!

DSC01089

This was also my first time ever trying almond butter. I fell in love.

Oh, and can’t forget the iced coffee!

Lunch

I think those were one of those days where nothing was calling my name when it came to lunch time. I ended up with something I normally fall back on when this happens.

DSC01104

1/2 Bagel Thin with melted cheese + jelly ; 1/2 Thin with PB and Banana ; Apple

DSC01105

DSC01106

Always satisfying when I don’t know what I want!

Dinner

This dinner was deeeelish. Definitely a favorite!

DSC01078

Almond encrusted salmon with a maple-soy glaze, on top of a salad.

Super easy to make and throw it on top of a salad, so healthy too!

Salmon is one of my favorite fish but it has to be cooked right. I’m honestly scared to cook it so I usually only eat it if someone else cooks it for me Smile

Plus, salmon is the healthiest fish you can eat!

Is there a food you’re afraid to cook?

Have you ever had overnight oats cold? If so, do you like it?

WIAW Round TWO!

My second WIAW post, weeeeee!

Okay it may not be that exciting but we can pretend Winking smile

Here are my eats from last Wednesday!

Breakfast

I took a body works class at my gym and also got in a 3 mile run! Once I got home I wanted some yummy fuel.

DSC00745

Two pieces Ezekiel bread. One with cherry preserves and sliced banana, the other with my homemade cinnamon raisin peanut butter. Never gets old.

I ended up being out running errands till late so I had a late lunch!

Lunch
