What I Ate Wednesday #53

Posted on Updated on


Does anyone else think this week is going super-fast? I can’t believe it’s Wednesday already!

That means it’s time for another What I Ate Wednesday over here. As always, thanks to Jenn for hosting the link party. To see what’s on other bloggers’ plates this week, visit Peas & Crayons.

I’m kinda loving this month’s theme. I’m a big fan of adding in extra veggies wherever possible, so I’ll take any excuse to highlight how easy it is to throw some extra green stuff in with pasta or whip together a salad.

I’ve been in a rhythm lately of showing you guys Monday’s eats, but we’ll see how that goes when I change to a new rotation next week. Not only will I be working with a different patient population, I’ll be at a whole other facility with a much longer commute. Haha maybe we’ll do a few weekend-themed WIAW posts…

Some days, what I make for dinner and snacks is largely dictated by what needs to get used up before it goes bad. Or who are we kidding—most days are like that lately. This Monday was a good example.

Breakfast: steel-cut oats with ground flax, chia seeds, apple, plum, and dates, topped with PB & apple sauce (I made a bitch batch on Sunday night) 

Lunch: The Monday Greens; an unpictured apple; coffee 

Snack: (unpictured) cherry tomatoes (random but good)

Dinner: Mushroom tortellini with vegetarian sausage and veggies, topped with goat cheese

Snack: Greek yogurt with cocoa powder, cereal and strawberries 

How do you decide what to make for dinner? What’s the best thing you’ve eaten so far this week?

    OMG, that mushroom tortellini looks great! Did you make it? I always make a big batch of something for weekday dinners, so I don’t have to think about it. Which is good, because I’m indecisive.

      Haha I bought it in the frozen food section at Whole Foods. I made a double-batch on Monday and then had it two nights in a row. I usually make a big batch of a few different things over the weekend too—it makes weeknights so much easier!

    Haven’t had dates in my oatmeal before, but definitely trying that soon! Best thing so far this week… Sweet potatoes. I’m obsessed. Oh, and my goulash on Monday was pretty good too.

    Your dinner sounds like such a delicious combo! Plus, it has goat cheese…that makes almost everything better!

      haha agreed—goat cheese is like the red lipstick of…cheese. Or something. It takes any old dish up a notch.
