What I Ate Wednesday #2

How is everyone this morning? Me? I am loving today so far! The kids are off to a day at Summer Camp so I get a half day to do as I please. What am I going to do with all that free time? I don’t know….the possibilities are endless! A good workout is definitely in order but after that I am thinking complete downtime sounds good. After dropping them off I will probably come home, workout up a nice sweat, then put my feet up for a bit, maybe download a new book for my Nook and have a little “Me” time!! Yep sounds good to me!


Welcome to my 2nd edition of “What I Ate Wednesday”.

I have to admit, there are a couple things I ate today that I didn’t photograph so I will just disclose those upfront.

  • 5 or 6(I lost count)gummy worms. I took my kids to see Brave(a great movie by the way) and forgot my phone at home.
  • A couple handfuls of Quaker Oatmeal Squares. These are dangerous but thankfully my kids love them too so I won’t be the only one digging in!!

Now for the foods that I did photograph. Here we go!!


Overnight Oats. You saw these on my blog yesterday but they are good enough to be seen a 2nd time!!

I ate this fairly late in the morning and because it was so filling, I was able to hold off on a morning snack.


By the time lunch rolled around my tummy was starting to growl. I knew I wanted a salad because the one from my lunch on Monday really hit the spot. As I was gathering my salad ingredients, I noticed some left over quinoa and broccoli from last night. I added them right into my salad and it was FABULOUS!! Quinoa was a great addition.  I also added about a TBSP of Greek Vinigarette after the photo was taken.

My sweet tooth started kicking in after I ate my salad so I satisfied it with a small piece of dark chocolate. How I stopped at one, I don’t know. Oh yes, I do. I was running around like a mad woman trying to get us out of the house on time so we wouldn’t be late for the movie. I wasn’t fast enough and we ended up with the seats close to the front. At least it was the very back row of the front seats. See, I am an optimist 😉

Afternoon snack

Since I only indulged in a few little gummy worms at the movie I was ready to fill my belly with some real food. I whipped up a small bowl of Trader Joe’s plain Greek yogurt, added some frozen blueberries, sweetened it with a bit of honey and topped it with crack Quaker Oat Squares.

This is also when a couple extra handfuls of my new favorite cereal was consumed. Sigh.

Dinner Time

Nachos, baby!!! I topped some Trader Joe’s tortilla chips with lean ground sirloin, blacked beans, colby jack cheese, tomatoes and salsa verde. I REALLY wanted to go back for another big plate full but I didn’t. That would have been a bad choice and I am all about trying to make better choices these days. At least until 4th of July!! Not that nachos were exactly a GOOD choice. Oh well.

Enjoy your day, guys!! I am off to do the same 🙂

Do you have any good book recommendations for me to download on my Nook?

Do you prefer sweet or salty snacks?

    Yum! I want nachos BAD now! I love salty and sweet snacks! I’ve been addicted to cashews and dark chocolate chips! Yum! Your oats look really good! I should try overnight oats, I like my oats cold too!

  2. I prefer sweet snacks. I totally agree – those Quaker Oatmeal Squares are crack. SO good.

  3. I would choose salty snacks over sweet anytime. I’m on an overnight oats roll! It’s fun to try different toppings.
