What I Ate Wednesday #91: Lasts

Posted on Updated on


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

This past Saturday was both the last Saturday of 2012 and my last weekend day working at the hospital as a dietetic intern. Reading that, I wish it meant I’d already secured a job in clinical, but with graduation still a month a way and a licensing exam in the future, it still feels a bit far away. I’ve only just begun the honest-to-goodness planning phase of my job search.

That said, one foot in front of the other, one day at a time, and always with an open mind. I’m actually really happy to have been able to wrap up all my weekend days before the end of the year—it just feels right.

So here’s what I ate on this “day of lasts.” Not too bad for a quiet, snowy Saturday.

Breakfast: Chocolate oatmeal topped with (thawed) frozen berries and chocolate PB2

Lunch: Packed salad, soup from the cafeteria

Snack: An apple, decaf coffee that was too gross to drink

Dinner: Whole wheat pasta with veggies and non-fat ricotta & grated pecorino, a glass of red
Snack: Plan yogurt with cocoa powder and a leftover red velvet Christmas cookie from the freezer

What was the best thing you ate this weekend?

    Your oatmeal looks amazing. I want a bowl.

    Best thing I ate this weekend, I made a recipe from my Jamie Oliver 15 minute meal cookbook I got for Christmas. It was called sticky kicking chicken and it was gorgeous.

      I love Jamie Oliver—I haven’t tried any of his 15-minute recipes but I can only imagine how great they are!

    That’s quite a superb year-ender breakfast. I wonder what would be a good dish to start the year 2013? That yogurt snack is pretty interesting too! 🙂
