Welcome to another week of What I Ate Wednesday!!
Normally I am a gal who likes a little variety in her life(meals especially) but judging from yesterdays food, you wouldn’t know it!! What can I say, if I am eating the same thing multiple times per day, it must be good!! That, or I am running low on groceries!! I can say that my pantry is pretty well socked right now so yep, I was just digging the food!!
I am loving the WIAW theme for the month of October for two reasons!!
- It is all about the fun and healthy Halloween treats(of which I ate lots yesterday!!)
- PINK for Breast Cancer Awareness
My mom is a Breast Cancer survivor so I am always happy to see awareness brought to the cause!! So many of us have been or will be affected by Breast Cancer and I feel it is so important to be educated about the disease as well as helping to find a cure and care for those who have it!! Thanks, Jenn!!!
Okie Dokie, let’s get to talking about yesterdays meals!!
Breakfast– If you checked out my blog yesterday, then you already know about the slice of goodness that was breakfast. Spinach, onion and feta crust-less quiche. So delicious!!
Snack #1- The skinny chocolate chip pumpkin cookies that I made on Monday didn’t stand a chance around me yesterday. I tried to keep them hidden….out of site out of mind but yeah, it didn’t work so well. I went ahead and helped myself to two of them for my morning snack.
Lunch– I had one piece of quiche leftover after breakfast and I felt bad letting it sit in the fridge all by its lonesome……Soooooo, I ate it!!! I added a piece of Ezekiel bread topped with peanut butter and jelly and had a more than acceptable “breakfast for lunch” meal!!
Snack #2– Remember how I said my meals were really repetitive today. Yeahhhh, that includes snacks as well.
Dinner- Alright, I finally changed it up at dinner time!!! While I enjoyed every bite I ate earlier in the day, my taste buds were more than ready for some variety. Grilled chicken breasts, quinoa with corn and peas and green beans. It was simple and it was G-O-O-D!!
I love grilling nights!! Mostly because it means that Lance is handling the cooking of the meat which is far from my favorite thing to do. Minimal mess in the kitchen is pretty nice, too!!!
I would love to say that my eating ended with that meal but that would be a big fat LIE!!! Like I tell my kids, it is always better to tell the truth….
Truth: I had ONE more pumpkin cookie after dinner. Someone hide the darn cookies because obviously I cannot have just one……or two. Five people, I had FIVE!!!!!
I have to wish a special HAPPY BIRTHDAY to my extra special best friend, Stephenie!! The type of friendship we have is hard to come by but I am lucky enough to be gifted with it everyday. I only wish I could be in Baton Rouge to celebrate with her. I love you, my friend!!!
Do you know someone who had been affected by Breast Cancer?
