Recent Eats: Post-Run Oatmeal & Lots of Salads & Apple Crisp


Jumping right in to a few recent eats today for What I Ate Wednesday. Gosh am I glad it’s Wednesday already!

It’s so rare for me to get a picture of my breakfast these days but I managed my post-run oatmeal for us. This post-run oatmeal is loaded with frozen blueberries, fresh strawberries and peanut butter. I eat this combination every day lately and love every bite.

I like to add Skoop B-Strong to my post-run oatmeal for added protein but I finished the big container and didn’t reorder it. Yes, I am lazy.

Instead, I picked up a packet of Vega Protein & Greens at Target to carry me over until I remember to order more Skoop. I like Vega but it’s not as good as Skoop if you ask me!

And I still like to use the yogurt store spoons for my oatmeal. I don’t know why but I just love them.

Based on the pictures below, my diet has been filled with salads.

I didn’t even realize how much salad I was eating over the last several days until putting this post together!

Leftovers don’t usually happen for me but I actually brought home some of my favorite barbecue ranch salad (no chicken) from The Cheesecake Factory the other night. It made for a great lunch the next day. I just bulked it up with more lettuce.


I made this quick salad for lunch one day. It’s pretty basic but really good. It contains chopped romaine lettuce with roasted sweet potatoes, chickpeas and feta cheese.


Oh I really enjoyed this salad combination for dinner!

I added feta cheese to the cranberry walnut salad I bought from Stew Leonard’s and served it with a side of crispy roasted potatoes. I think salads with roasted potatoes are my favorite weeknight dinners right now!

Here’s a lunch salad at Panera while working and look, it includes an apple this time!

I am very slowly finding myself slowly returning to eating apples which makes me happy. You know they say an apple a day keeps the doctor away? I really don’t want to mess with that so I am making an effort over here to like them again.

I usually cut up the apple they give me at Panera and add it to the salad.

So speaking of apples, I have been trying to enjoy a granny smith apple with peanut butter and chocolate chips again as my evening snack. Sometimes I want it, sometimes I don’t.

Otherwise, I have also been making individual serving versions of my lightened up vegan apple crisp. I like this dessert a whole lot and it’s a great way to get my apples in. 🙂

    I am thinking we are kindred spirits when it comes to salads–I love putting roasted vegetables on top of salads–and nuts too! Those look delicious to me and so nutrient-dense. YUM.

    Everything looks delicious! My favorite plant based protein powder is the chocolate flavored Vega protein and greens. It legitimately makes everything taste like a chocolate milk shake 🙂

    I don’t like Vega. Anything with that fake sweetener in it makes me so sick! Not literally sick–just totally grossed out. I’m cringing. Have you tried toasted sweet potatoes yet? I saw it on Instagram and it totally works! Slice up a sweet potato lengthwise and slide it into the toaster for 2 or 3 cycles. It’s good, and my kids like it too smothered in butter. I’m not sure why my comments were going to spam. Maybe I said a swear word or something??!
