Tag Archives: What I Ate Wednesday

WIAW #6

Happy Wednesday everyone!

Welcome to another edition of WIAW, however, I’m mixing things up a little this week and making my post About What I Ate Last Weekend.

As you may have read, I went away to a Bed and Breakfast for a scrapbooking retreat last weekend and as usual, the food was amazing! We went to Selywn Shores Waterfront Bed and Breakfast located in Lakefield Ontario. Martha, the owner of the B & B is a fantastic cook, and once again, we were not disappointed!

Here’s a little of what we are:

On the menu: mixed greens with cucumber and veggies, carrot parsnip soup, mushroom ferno, mac and cheese, flank steak, fresh herb bread and chocolate chip cheesecake.

The food was absolutely amazing, and what’s also amazing is that Martha share her recipes, so I will be able to make my favourites at home! I cannot wait to make that Mac and Cheese! Yummo!

I’m Exhausted! And WIAW

It’s only Wednesday and I’m already exhausted! We had a super busy weekend last weekend so I didn’t much of a chance to rest and its totally catchy up with me.

What does this mean?

Well it means today’s WIAW post is going to be short and sweet 🙂

Here’s what I ate today…

Breakfast – Whole wheat toast with almond butter and a glass of apple juice.

Snack – 1 Dark Chocolate Chip Walnut No Bake Coconut Cookie These cookies are amazing! I think next time I will add some oats to jazz them up a little more, but they are super yummy as is. And so easy to make!

Happy Hump Day everyone!

WIAW #5

Lunch – Potato, Leek and Cheddar Soup (Clean Eating Classic Comfort Foods p.26) and grapes

Snack – Apple

Dinner – Supperworks Mexican Lasagna

Snack – Coke and Popchips

So, overall, not a bad day. I definitely need to curb the evening snacking – although Popchips aren’t too bad, I definitely need to stop drinking pop!

I will be posing both the muffin and soup recipe soon, stay tuned!

WIAW #4

Welcome to another instalment of What I Ate Wednesday! Today was a bit if an unusual work day – we are in exams so I have a different schedule which once again, sort of threw me off. I definitely need to start prepping dinners that provide leftovers for lunches – lots of little snacks are great, but after a run, I’m wanting more!

Breakfast 7:00am – Light rye toast with natural peanut butter and a glass of OJ.

Afternoon Snack 3pm – 1/4 cup of peanuts and 1 cup pomegranate seeds. Oops, totally forgot to take a picture 😦 after I wolfed that down I decided….

And, an hour later I was feeling rested and ready to pick up the kids.

Dinner 5:30 – Ham, broccoli and cheese scalloped potatoes and broccoli.

I’m already looking forward to a ham and cheese sandwich for lunch tomorrow 🙂

I’m sure there will be some sort of evening snack gobbled up in the next half hour or so, but I haven’t decided what yet…most likely a bowl of cereal…

What did you eat today?

What’s your go-to evening snack?
