What I Ate Wednesday #70

Posted on Updated on


Another week, another What I Ate Wednesday. As always, thanks to Jenn for hosting the link party. To see more WIAW from other bloggers, visit Peas & Crayons.

Since I didn’t travel last weekend, it was easier to get in the swing of things this week. I’m enjoying my current rotation (Cardiac) because I get to see a lot of patients each day. That face-to-face interaction is one of my favorite parts of clinical nutrition, so even if it means being on my feet a bit more, I get a lot out of it.

Though I’ve been sticking to a lot of summer staples to keep me going throughout the day (see the way I worked in this month’s WIAW theme?) I’ve also been trying to mix in new things to keep it interesting. That could be something as simple as “what happens if I used a white peach in my oatmeal?” or something along the lines of, “I wonder if hummus works a pizza topping…with an egg on top?”

Here’s what I ate on Monday.

Breakfast: Overnight oats w/ a white peach, berries, and PB 

Lunch: Salad, veggie chili, & cornbread (I’m starting to get really sick of this) 

Snacks: grapes; dry roasted edamame 

Dinner: Whole wheat tortilla “pizza”/mess. Hummus instead of sauced, topped w/ veggies, goat cheese, a poached egg, and a drizzle of tahini.  

Snack: Greek yogurt w/ berries & cereal 

How do you keep things interesting when it comes to food?

    Buying whatever looks amazing at the farmer’s market forces me to use new/seasonal ingredients becuase I HATE letting food go to waste!
