Hi guys! How’s everyone’s week shaping up? Nothing too exciting here, but I can’t complain….so far, so good!

Welcome to What I Ate Wednesday Tuesday! Visit Jenn at peasandcrayons.com for tons more What I Ate Wednesday action! This month is all about love and the theme for the month is love your veggies. Well, I have absolutely no problem with that!


Tuesday morning was very challenging! Why, you ask?!?! I was fasting and could not have my breakfast or coffee at the times that I normally would. This was way more difficult than I thought it would be. I drove to work feeling like a zombie. Every year the school offers free cholesterol and blood sugar testing along with a blood pressure check. I like having this checked every other year….it’s always good to have a baseline in case something goes crazy. All of my numbers were great!

Anyway, breakfast happened about 3.5 hours after being awake…you nonbreakfast people, I don’t know how you do it. Overnight oats and coffee never tasted so good!! I used this recipe and Chobani Champions Very Berry for my overnight oats and then added PB2 and blueberries to the mix.

No midmorning snack today, since breakfast was so late. Lunch was extra awesome! I made these Southwest Stuffed Bell Peppers Monday night and they truly surpassed my expectations {recipe to come soon}. I had a salad on the side with mixed greens, tomatoes, broccoli, kabocha squash and topped with TJ’s Everyday Seasoning and TJ’s Cilantro Lime dressing.

You guys know I never miss my afternoon snack of nutbutter and apple slices! Today’s variety was a Gala apple with crunchy Snickerdoodle Cashew Butter {the best!}. This is a recycled photo and I think this was my crunchy honey cinnamon peanut butter.

I worked late and before gymnastics, the kids and I headed to Wal-Mart to get all of our Valentine’s Day necessities. I picked up Subway for the kids, but not for me. No, I had my favorite Trader Joe’s premixed salad {Field Fresh Chopped Salad with Grilled White Chicken} waiting on me. I add more mixed greens to the salad to make it super filling. The dressing that comes with it {Sweet Basil Dressing} is to die for. I wish I could find just the dressing sold by itself. Excuse the recycled photo….yea….my salad did not expire in November. 😉

Something to think about…..

What was something delicious you ate yesterday?

Have you ever had your cholesterol checked?

Have you ever had to fast?

Are you a breakfast person?

Have a happy hump day! Check back tomorrow, I’m planning to post a recipe. I haven’t decided what, yet. I have a few options. 😉
