What I Ate Wednesday #10

Posted on

Welcome to another “What I Ate Wednesday.” Meander on over to Jenn’s blog, Peas & Crayons, for more about the series and to see posts from other bloggers.

Happy Wednesday! Anyone else feeling the full moon lunar eclipse? I feel like the energy of this one is very constructive and collaborative and not quite as crazy-inducing as full moons tend to be. I woke up early for a quick workout and to tweak an article before heading to the clinic. I have several looming deadlines, and I was really happy to be able to head home on the early side of the afternoon and get some more stuff out of the way.

I was especially glad I had time for a filling snack/dinner part 1 before class, because we ran late and dinner wasn’t until close to 10 pm.  I did manage to stumble on a new favorite combination: eggs with melted babybel cheese.  I mean, dude—why did it take me so long to try this? F-ing amazing. It was good brain food for the case studies I spent the rest of my night working on.

Again, Wednesdays tend to be the day I rely on a lot of stand-bys, but it was nice to have restaurant leftovers as part of lunch and to make something new (to me) for dinner.

Breakfast: Overnight oats topped with berries

I'm loving the early-morning light

Lunch: Caravan of Dreams leftovers over greens with added avocado, cucumber and roasted pepper

Snack: Green smoothie with oats and a little coconut oil swirled on top

Late Dinner: Eggs on an Ezekiel English muffin with sliced Babybel cheese melted on top; grilled asparagus

Snack: Chocolate Banana Softserve w/ a crumbled date ball (made a new batch finally)

Hope you had a good Wednesday!

What was the best thing you ate this week?

    I’ll make some to bring to NJ with me next week. I also think you’d love the overnight oats-so easy and good!

    wow I really need to learn how to make overnight oats. I don’t really know how to make them, I guess. Do you cook them first then have them cold?

      They’re so simple! Just mix oats (I usually do 1/4-1/3 c) with whatever spices you want, 1-2 tbsp chia seeds and/or flax, some sliced banana and whatever other fruit and then either milk (any kind works) or yogurt. I like to add cocoa powder sometimes too, and will use protein powder once in a while.

      Anyway, stir it and leave it overnight in the fridge. In the morning, you end up with a really thick, doughy bowl of oats. I like to top mine with more fruit, sometimes chocolate shavings. I’ve seen people use PB and almond butter too. I add a little cottage cheese too in the a.m. sometimes.
