What I Ate Wednesday #98

Posted on Updated on


The middle of the week always seems to come so quickly. That means it’s  What I Ate Wednesday yet again. I can’t believe I’m almost at the 100th week! As always, thanks to Jenn for hosting the weekly link party. To see more WIAW from other bloggers, visit Peas & Crayons.

After taking the weekend easy, I felt recharged and ready to get back to work Monday. Or ok, sort of. I may or may not have needed an hour-long nap late in the afternoon.

I’ve been trying to keep myself on a schedule as I juggle work, studying, school, and other stuff. At the same time, though, I keep reminding myself to slow down a little when I can and enjoy having a more flexible schedule, since I’m not sure how long it will last. I feel like I’ve been saying this a lot lately…Either way, it was great to meet up with one of my fellow interns for coffee and catch up!

Here’s what I ate as I attempted to get back to the grind…

  • Breakfast: Oats with ground flax, grated zucchini, baby spinach, and lots of garlic and ginger. I added hummus on top.
  • Lunch: Leftover (cheeseless) veggie pizza with tahini drizzled on top. It also had falafel on top—I never knew this combination existed, but I’m a fan. I had a salad on the side.
  • Snack: Greek yogurt with berries and cereal—what else is new?
  • Dinner: Lentil & ham soup my mom made with the last of the spinach mixed in; toast with hummus & roasted eggplant
  • Snack: (unpictured) sliced banana with cinnamon

What kind of pizza do you like?

    I’ve pretty muchonly just discovered savoury oats!! I’m so excited to try it. Yours sound delicious! Though I’m not sure if I could have it for breakfast hehe. And the pizza sounds great as well. Good day of food 🙂

      I think the first time I ever had savory oats it was actually for dinner—it wasn’t until a few months ago that it occurred to me to actually have them for breakfast! Hope you enjoy either way!
