What I Ate Wednesday August 5, 2015


Jumping right into the food if you don’t mind because I need to get out the door super early today to pick my son up from his dad and get him to camp!



No english muffins to show you this morning. Back to oatmeal these days,  a little bit before I run with some banana and peanut butter (not pictured) and then a nice big post run bowl which is by far my favorite meal of the day.

Cold, cooked oatmeal mixed with berries, Skoop B-Strong and peanut butter.

I lose count of how many mugs of coffee I have in the morning but the other day I did have some Yogi tea for a change. Kava Stress Relief is my favorite flavor.



It’s been a while since I mashed my chick peas with avocado. I was on that kick for lunch for so long and then one day stopped. I brought it back this week only this time I added some Dijon mustard to the mash with a side of roasted sweet potatoes, broccoli and brussels sprouts.

Non stop watermelon, non stop.



Look at me making something different! Spaghetti squash has been on my mind so I bought a small one at Whole Foods (because it’s not spaghetti squash season which means the price per pound is too high for my liking).

It was so incredibly good! I baked the spaghetti squash and then mixed in tomato sauce, topped it with mozzarella cheese and placed it back in the oven to get all bubbly.

I ate half and served it with a side of some of the below veggies from my Italian style power bowl which I prepared at the same time. I got all food preppy the other night, I don’t know who I am.

Nothing overly new here HOWEVER I have been making a delicious new peanut butter chocolate chip dip. I think I will share the super simple recipe really soon.

What dessert have you been enjoying on weeknights lately?

    Its been too long since I have had spaghetti squash. I actually haven’t seen it in TJs so thats probably why I have forgotten about it. I also love butternut squash, but I definitely prefer buying it cut up because I find it exhausting to do myself:)

    Oookay, I want to eat everything you posted. I mean it. That lunch. Hello, cheesy squash for dinner. And all the oatmeal and fruit. Yes, please. I really like to see somebody else who is all about decent serving sizes and lots of produce. Invite me over ;)?
    On a random note: at first I thought your watermelon was grapefruit because the way you cut/chopped it some of the pieces looked like that 😀 .
    A recent weeknight ‘dessert’ though I’d rather call it a snack actually came about because I’m out of coconut flour: Greek yogurt/Quark mixed with PB2, my grandma’s homemade cherry jam, leftover cooked bulgur stirred in and topped with almond butter.

      I think it depends upon what your stomach can handle. I wake up hungry but depending upon how hungry dictates how much I eat. For races I eat a whole bowl of oatmeal with peanut butter and a banana. Most mornings, it’s less than that but really depends on what you personally can run on! I eat more after my run than before though. I don’t measure things unfortunately so I can’t really give exact/ accurate amounts.

    I don’t remember the last time I made a dish with spaghetti squash or sweet potatoes. Unfortunately both are ridiculously expensive in Kuwait. It actually sucks because Joshua doesn’t eat either so I wouldn’t even have to buy much. How about you just enjoy one or the other for me? 🙂

      Haha – definitely not a stomach of steel. I can only eat a few brussels sprouts at a time and if I eat too many fresh roasted vegetables, I am totally uncomfortable. I stick with the frozen vegetables for the most part these days and limit the variety. So hard on the stomach!
