WIAW- It Feels Like Monday


It feels like Monday around my house since school was closed Monday and Tuesday for Rosh Hashanah. It’s nice to know that we are already halfway through the week yet I will admit it’s quite difficult to snap back into the regular weekday routine after being engulfed in holiday eating and lots of fun family time.

Let’s take a look at what I ate yesterday, the second day of Rosh Hashanah.


The usual early morning action in my kitchen:


My first cup of coffee and first bowl of oatmeal with mashed banana and cinnamon swimming in almond milk because I am suddenly on an almond milk kick now that I have discovered I am not allergic to it.

After some Pure Barre and an easy run, I was starving so I quickly showered and fixed myself a second breakfast of oatmeal, greek yogurt, Skoop B-Strong, banana and peanut butter.


Normally I like to add berries to my oatmeal but I didn’t feel like it yesterday. What I did feel like was another bowl after I finished the above bowl so another bowl is what I had.

Once I was finally full from breakfast, I decided to try out Amanda’s new recipe for Greek Yogurt Pumpkin Banana Bread.

We were going to my aunt’s house for Rosh Hashanah lunch so I needed something to bake to bring with me since I always arrive with something sweet.

Yes. Just yes. You must make it!

Halfway through lunch I remembered that I was planning today’s post which meant I needed pictures of my meals.

My aunt always puts out a nice spread (which reminds me that we aren’t so far off now from Thanksgiving!) so even though I missed some photo opportunities, you can trust me when I say there was plenty of challah (and honey), salad, bagels, lox, salmon, veggies and baked pasta dishes to go around.

Dessert on the other hand, that I always remember to capture.


My aunt cut up the banana bread into adorable little cubes. Like really, it was delicious.

By the time I got home from lunch it was basically time to think about dinner but I felt as though I just ate a full meal which thoroughly confused me and my appetite.

So I had an apple with peanut butter because apples with peanut butter are what I eat when I feel the need to eat something but don’t know what that something should be.

I never really ate dinner now that I think about it. I had a banana before I went to sleep and here I am now, Wednesday morning, feeling like it’s Monday.

Be sure to check out what everyone else is eating today 🙂

    I am running inside today. Peanut butter by the spoonful is my go to anytime, meal. It looks like you had a great spread, I love bagels with cream cheese and lox. Have a great day.

    Apples and honey are mandatory anyway 🙂

    It’s funny, the way I know refined carbs really send my blood sugar rocketing is that if I’m feeling not so hungry or even nauseous, eating some plain cereal or crackers or toast gets me starving!

    I want to try the pumpkin/banana bread. I’m not a banana lover but I commented on Amanda’s post saying I was dying to try it. YUM. I feel like I’d be in heaven at that meal- challah, bagels, DESSERTS, baked pasta dishes… any and all of the above please. Whenever I eat a giant meal at lunch I’m never full for dinner later… oh well. Worth it for a delicious meal.
