WIAW: January 30, 2013

Typing today’s date seems so surreal.  I cannot believe that it is almost February.  The first month of this year has certainly flown by.  I cannot say that I am complaining, though.  I am ready for some Spring time weather.  March and April get here sooner please!!

But enough about the weather ;) ….let’s get right down to the eats!

It’s “What I Ate Wednesday…”

Breakfast

Today’s breakfast consisted of one of my favorite breakfast creations: a waffle-wich!

I spread one whole grain Kashi waffle with blackberry jam and the other waffle with one Laughing Cow Swiss cheese wedge.  I sandwiched a sunny-side up egg sprinkled with pepper between the two waffles.  I don’t think that I will ever get tired of this sweet and savory combination.

On the side I ate a small bowl of Greek vanilla yogurt topped with fresh blueberries and blackberries.  The blackberries are seriously delicious right now!

For lunch I ate a Vietnamese Bahn Mi-inspired sandwich (recipe to come soon!).  This is actually a recycled picture from last night’s dinner, but it looks much prettier than my Tupperware container ;).

I also ate a Jonagold apple.

Snacks

A few of my co-workers and I went to a Retirement reception this afternoon, where I snagged a small piece of vanilla and chocolate swirl cake.  It has been awhile since I have treated myself to something sweet like cake, so I savored every bite.

Before heading to the gym, I fueled my body with some protein.  I ate a Trader Joe’s individual pack of whole natural almonds.  I love these individually-portioned packages.  Plus, Trader Joe’s has some of the most reasonably priced nuts around.

Dinner

After my workout I came home and prepared a yummy dinner.  I had a veggie-stuffed baked potato topped with vegan queso “cheese” sauce (recipe to come soon!).  On the side I ate some roasted green beans.  This dinner was seriously delicious.

Snacks

Tonight’s snacks have/will consisted of:

baby carrots with hummus
radish chips (recipe to come)
and fresh cantaloupe and clementine oranges.

A pretty well-rounded and delicious day of eats if I do say so myself!

  1. There’s a new restaurant locally that only serves Bahn Mi. They do have a veg option, but looking forward to the recipe. And good vegan queso? Sounds like great posts to come!

  2. Yum! I seriously love waffles – I still have some pumpkin spice ones in my freezer and I’m making them last as long as possible!! Cake is always a winner in my book :)
