What I Ate Wednesday 1.4.17


Thank you for your comments (and emails) regarding yesterday’s post! I am still working on responding to them but your thoughts on disordered eating and how it can start unintended are greatly appreciated.

It’s pretty fitting to follow up yesterday’s post with a What I Ate Wednesday post, although, this post almost didn’t happen because I have been doing a terrible job remembering to take pictures of a full day of food.

I am sure it’s partly because what I eat lately, and especially during the week, really isn’t all that interesting although the boring stuff is worth sharing too!

The truth is, I just don’t believe that anyone really eats elaborate meals that require multi-step recipes for breakfast, lunch and dinner on a regular basis. We all go through phases with cooking more often and prepping food for the week and then, well, not so much! It’s totally normal. Well, at least I think it is!


I’ve been back to oatmeal lately – with mashed banana before I run and then another bowl after I run, sometimes with frozen blueberries cooked in too.

I did something crazy (crazy for me) yesterday by mixing a little bit of coconut oil into the oatmeal instead of peanut butter and really liked it!



There were six bagels sitting on my kitchen counter from Stew Leonard’s and the giant cinnamon raisin bagel had been calling my name all morning.

I meant to get a picture of the cinnamon raisin bagel after I toasted it with the butter and jelly but then I got distracted. Oops.

Sometimes I make egg sandwiches on my bagels for lunch and sometimes I just don’t care if my meal is lacking in protein. I really fell in love last week with the butter and jelly combination all over again and that was exactly what I wanted yesterday. Totally hit the spot.

So this guacamole is the spiciest guacamole that I have ever tasted! I still ate it but wow does it set my mouth on fire for a bit.



I really didn’t know what I was in the mood to eat which seems to be the trend these days when I have dinner at home.

Dr. Praeger’s veggie burgers always come in handy though! With a side of roasted potato wedges that still aren’t sweet potatoes because I just don’t care to have those yet.

I’m still obsessed with Hershey’s Kisses. What is it about Hershey’s milk chocolate that makes it so good?! Most of the time, I choose dark chocolate over milk chocolate yet I love Hershey’s milk chocolate, especially in the kisses.

It’s pretty warm here today for winter (like in the 40’s already this morning!) so I am excited to run outdoors. Be sure to check out what everyone else is eating today!

    Lately I have been adding molasses to my oats – so good! I get in a cooking mood after the holidays (when I wing it a lot), so I’ve been cooking up soups, breads, hummus, stock, all sorts of things.

    I definitely go through phases of wanting to cook and others where I put random leftovers in a bowl and call it a meal. Usually depends on how busy my week is. And Oh I’ve never tried coconut in oatmeal, great idea!

    This reminds me I need to make a huge batch of veggie burgers to have on hand in the freezer. Also, I skipped my oatmeal for a day (because the Hubby made pancakes) but I’m back on the oats train again. It’s so filling and easy, which is exactly what I need in the morning. Ain’t nobody got time for fancy complex meals.

      ugh, one of these days I will make a batch of veggie burgers again. I liked when I did that.

    Ooh that fresh prepared guac looks AMAZING; and oatmeal is so good on these cold winter mornings.

    I like mixing chocolate chips and coffee cream into my oatmeal. I don’t like Hershey’s; I love Cadbury all the way! Okay but you know what has started happening? I cough whenever I eat Cadbury chocolate. I just remembered that! I also cough when I eat freezies. SO WEIRD. I wonder what the ingredient is that makes me cough?

      ohhh, maybe compare the ingredients list? I have heard of people coughing like that so it must be a reaction to something!

    I did blueberries and maple syrup in my oats this morning, but I’ll switch it up depending on what I have on hand. I did apples, raisins, and cinnamon for the longest time, and then a pretty long time where I’d do frozen banana ice cream right on hot oats. That was amazing.

    Ive been trying to get back into cooking mode but its been a struggle lately. After work Im just so tired and have no energy to cook! But I always end up glad to be eating a real home cooked meal rather than eating out or just throwing something together.
