What I Ate Wednesday #51: On the mend

Posted on Updated on


Happy Wednesday, all. It’s time for another edition of What I Ate Wednesday. As always thanks to Jenn for hosting the link party. To see more WIAW from other bloggers, visit Peas & Crayons.


So far I’m doing much better this week than last week. Suffice it to say, I don’t think I plan on going into oncology, but I sort of knew that going into this internship. I’m actually really relieved to have such an emotionally taxing rotation out of the way. For the next few weeks, I’m doing endocrinology, which involves a lot of diabetes education—something I’m much  better suited to. Go figure, though, that I freak out over cancer but can look at a post-op amputation or decaying appendage and be fine. I guess we’ve all got our stuff.

This week I’ve been remembering to bring snacks in the morning so I’m not shaky and cranky by the time the day ends. It’s been making a huge difference! I’m still making sure to have balanced, filling meals too. Here’s what Monday looked like…

Breakfast: steel-cut oats with apple, pumpkin, chia seeds & ground flax, topped with a PB2&pumpkin mousse (not sure what else to call it), apple sauce, and granola crumbles

Lunch: Salad from the cafeteria salad bar (some days are more interesting than others) 

Snacks: (unpictured) grapes and one of the granola bars I made Saturday, eaten throughout the day 

Dinner: Leftover spinach & cheese ravioli with veggies, marinara, and shrimp; salad & sauv blanc on the side 

Snack: plain yogurt with fruit and a more granola bar crumbles 

What are some of your favorite snacks? What’s the best thing you’ve eaten recent?

    muffin crumbles will be as good as granola in your mix:)

    Mmm, such a tasty day! I love making granola bars, too. Best thing I ate today was lentil minestrone for lunch.

    The granola bars and the yogurt bowl look delicious! I love bars for snacks (or bananas with peanut butter, edamame and carrots, or yogurt and granola). Snacks are the best!
