What I Ate Wednesday #57

Posted on Updated on


Another week, another Wednesday. You know what that means…another What I Ate Wednesday.

As always, thanks to Jenn of Peas & Crayons for hosting the link party!

Aside from almost falling asleep while charting on the floor Monday, this week has been pretty good. I think I’ll get a lot out of this rotation. I also think I’ll be packing my lunch a lot more often—some sites have better cafeterias than others. Besides, sometimes it’s nice to change things up a bit.

Of note: I’ve been making a lot of typos lately, thanks mostly to sleep deprivation. Feel free to laugh at me, but don’t be surprised if you come back later to find an edited version. I think all my grammar skills are going to medical records or something. As long as I don’t start writing blog posts in hospital jargon I think we’re good…

“Pt reports participating in ‘What I Ate Wednesday.’ 3 meals/day plus snacks—vegetables, whole grains, eggs, fish, yogurt, etc. Alcohol in moderation…”

Since I’ve been posting mostly Mondays’ eats, here’s what Tuesday looked like this week.

Breakfast: Steel-cut oats w/ chia seeds and plum, topped with PB & fig butter 

Lunch: Packed a massaged kale salad w/ leftover falafel, roasted veggies, goat cheese and miso-tahini dressing; baba ganoush with crackers and baby carrots 

Snack: Apple w/ PB2 & pumpkin mousse (aka weird-good concoction of the moment) 

Dinner: Pumpkin grits (made in the microwave, of course) with leftover roasted veggies, scrambled egg + white (also made in microwave) and cheddar cheese 

Snacks: at writers’ group, an unpictured drink and cookie; later, yogurt w/ cocoa powder and berries 

Yes, I know I use my microwave to make a lot of things these days…

What foods do you make in the microwave?

    I agree that the microwave isn’t the best way to heat our food. It is quite convenient though. We usually heat leftovers but I’m finding that I use the toaster over more and more. Thanks for sharing your Tuesday…all looked yummy! XO

    I didn’t have a microwave until about a month ago and I still rarely use it….it comes in SOO handy for making sweet potatoes though. They take forever in the oven and it’s so nice to be able to make one quickly now

      SO much easier. Welcome to the dark side.

        When you have a chance, I’d love to learn how to make sweet potatoes in the microwave!

    Absolutely! All you do is wash the potato, prick it a few times, and place it in the microwave on a microwave-safe plate. My microwave has a “potato” setting, but it usually takes ~5 minutes on high for 1 potato.

    I also mix pumpkin with peanut flour… I like the name you put with it: pumpkin mousse

      Yeah-I had no idea what to call it. That seemed like the best approximation : )
