What I Ate Wednesday: A Day Off

It's Wednesday which means it's WIAW time with Jenn @ Peas and Crayons

I combined two days worth of food, which didn't include dinner every night because I forgot to take a picture. Whoops!
On to the eats!

Breakfast on Monday:
Brown sugar oatmeal from Burger King with dried fruit

I went grocery shopping on Tuesday so I wouldn't be stuck eating random food for breakfast and mostly buying oatmeal from BK. I always feel so happy once I go shopping and fill up my fridge and pantry with yummy foods.

Lunch on Monday:
Spinach salad with bacon and a hardboiled egg from Trader Joe's
So freaking yummy.
I inhaled ate the whole thing

Snack on Monday:
Veggie sticks
These things are sooooo delicious
I may or may not have kept snacking on these all afternoon at work

Breakfast on Tuesday with le boyfriend:
Scrambled eggs with crumbled sausage
(This was Cody's plate...I inhaled 1/2 my plate before realizing I hadn't taken a picture yet)

A good tip with eggs I've discovered is using one egg and one egg white when cooking eggs. That way I still get the yummy flavor of the yolk, but not as much cholesterol. Sneaky sneaky

Lunch on Tuesday:
Cody and I went out to Betty's Burgers and I got a veggie burger on a whole wheat bun with bacon and cheddar (What? Don't judge)
We split a basket of sweet potato fries and a small cake batter milkshake

Post workout snack while driving to cheer practice:
Chocolate brownie Pure bar
Oh goodness, so freaking delicious. I'm really liking Pure bars and may have to snag some more next time I go shopping.

Dinner on Tuesday:
2 baked sweet potatoes and white corn

Today I also had a training appointment and I regret not going to the gym everytime I have a session with my sadist of a trainer. He even lectured me today about not going to the gym more often. Ooops. Guess I'll be hauling my butt there more often now. I'll post about it more specifically tomorrow!

What do you think of Pure bars?
Any fun healthy cooking tips?


  1. I've been meaning to try those veggie sticks! They look good and crunchy. Your kitties are so cute!! You should join in on 23PAWS this weekend. I would love for the kitties to join in the party!!

  2. I love Pure bars and stocked up on them big time when I was in NYC last year. I'm all out now though. :(

  3. Prue bars are frickin' delicious! My best healthy cooking tips are to (a) not forget the oil - it brings out the flavors and helps you absorb the nutrients in veggies, (b) Cook a bunch at once and freeze some for convenience. :)

  4. I love veggie sticks! They are a fun snack, and I always feel better about digging into those rather than a bag of chips!

  5. The pure bar is awesome. & I love the veggie sticks.

  6. cake batter shake!? they make those - need to try that asap!! Love the pure bars - taste like a brownie but great ingredients.

  7. Cake batter milk shake sounds amazing!
    And I love those little veggie stick things- they taste just like french fries to me!

  8. I LOVE veggies sticks as well. Had them the first time last summer when a friend came to stay with me and she brought them. But then a few months later, I casually looked at the ingredients. They're not made out of veggies at all! They first ingredient is potato. I felt like I had been cheated. So I stopped eating them :( Which is a shame cause they're addicting.
