What I Ate Wednesday #102

Posted on Updated on


…and suddenly it’s Wednesday again—aka 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.

In keeping with this month’s green theme, this post contains a lot of chlorophyl. I’m still trying to make mostly things to use up random canned goods & such, but Sunday I had plans with my mom, which was really nice.

WHOA-OH OH—I just remembered that today is the spring equinox. I don’t know about you, but I am so ready for spring weather to freaking get here already. I’m getting to that breaking point where I listen way too much to the Postal Service for my own good (especially this “new” song I just heard for the first time last weekend) and make big little life decisions in between headaches. I’m sure there’s a planetary scapegoat I could pin this on, but I think I’ll just stick with a lingering case of the winter-blahs. These dim photos are bumming me out.

Breakfast: Chocolate oatmeal with egg whites (and canned pumpkin mixed in), topped with the other half of the banana I used to cook the oats.

Lunch: Grilled branzino with broccolini, roasted potatoes, and brussels sprouts; an unpictured glass of champagne that came with my “brunch.” Weird pairing, but hey, why not?

Snack: (unpictured) post-workout cottage cheese with blueberries and a crumbled graham cracker

Dinner: Salad with leftover roasted eggplant & pepper, chickpeas, and feta; olive foccacia from the flea market.

Snack: Sliced apple with dip/fluff made from PB2, cocoa powder, and more pumpkin—no way to make it sound good, but it tasted great with the tart apple.

Here’s to better & brighter—Happy Spring!

What’s the best thing you’ve eaten recently? What are you looking forward to this spring?

    I am looking forward to skirts, dresses, and shorts. I am SO sick of my black skinny jeans, which is pretty much all I wear all winter. The winter blahs are killing me!

      Cheers to that—I can’t wait to wear a freaking sundress again!

    Yay Spring! Except it’s raining today 😦 Which is fitting since I’m feeling under the weather and enjoying a PJ day. The rain makes it much easier to do! I’m looking forward to being outdoors with my little guy. He loves playing outside and we go on lots of runs when the weather is warm. Can’t wait!

    That Bronzino looks phenomenal! 🙂 I love grilled Whole Fish! The best thing I have eaten lately, well…… Salmon Skin of course!

      It was delicious. I’m also a fan of salmon skin—I used to avoid it but loved it when I finally gave it a chance.

        With what just salt and pepper!?

    That’s how I like it. A little lemon & olive oil go a long way too.
