What I Ate Wednesday #88

Posted on Updated on


I love multiples of 11, so I’m happy that today is the 88th What I Ate Wednesday to be more specific. As always, thanks to Jenn for hosting the weekly link party. To see more WIAW from other bloggers, visit Peas & Crayons.

So! I’m finally back in a clinical rotation: staff relief. It’s been ages since I’ve seen any patients over 19, so I’m very happy to be getting back to it.

Because this week is especially busy, I have another Sunday WIAW, which involved a lot of egg whites. After wanted to get around to trying out egg whites in oatmeal for a long-ass time, I finally gave it a shot. The verdict: I like the taste and texture, but it does not photograph well. At least not in my novice hands. It did keep me full through  a busy morning, though. Still, the baked omelette/glorified casserole I made came out far better. IMG_1105

Breakfast: Basically the ugliest breakfast ever—I need to work on presentation—oats with chia seeds, cinnamon & pumpkin pie spice, cranberries, and egg whites, topped with a chocolate PB2 sauce. I was going for dark chocolate cranberry something-ness. IMG_1099

Lunch: Baked egg white omelette with side salad; an unpictured square of dark chocolateIMG_1106

“Snack”: Wine while studying. It was just that kind of day.

I only just realized last week that this year's Beaujolais Nouveau came out a while ago---making up for lost time

Dinner: Leftover red lentil soup topped with leftover roasted veggies and goat cheese; a sprouted grain English muffin with mashed avocado & roasted red pepper IMG_1112

 

Snack: Plain yogurt w/ cocoa powder, blackberries, and cerealIMG_1113

If you eat eggs/egg whites, do you add them to oatmeal ever? Any tips you’re willing to share?

    I’ve never actually tried eggs or egg whites to my oatmeal, however I have heard many people do enjoy the texture & extra protein it gives to the dish.

    Have a wonderful day ❤

      I made another version where I added egg whites to my favorite zucchini bread oatmeal that came out much better!

    Wow. Congrats on #88. Quite the accomplishment! 🙂 When I could eat eggs (and oatmeal) I experimented with adding egg whites. I’ve tried both egg whites, and egg beaters. Both were good. Peace Love and Oats actually has an amazing tutorial on making fluffy egg white oatmeal. Try it out. So good!

    As far as presentation… Maybe leave it unassembled and all of the toppings just sitting on the oatmeal? Then mix it in after. I don’t know though, still looks pretty good to me 🙂

    Sometimes I’ll add an egg white into my oats in the last minute of cooking and stir vigorously! Melts right into just like my banana 🙂 And I love that wine was necessary for studying 😉

    Loving the look of your cranberry/pb2 choc oats! They look amazing. Gonna have to give that combo a try.

      I’m a big fan of chocolate and cranberry together.

    […] I get weirdly excited about multiples of 11 and prime numbers. 113 may not be a multiple of a 11, but it is a prime number—the 30th prime […]
