I’ve read countless articles on why it’s not always wise to eat in front of the TV. I don’t follow that rule very often. But over the last few days, I’ve been especially rebellious … all for Dexter.
A friend of mine had been talking for weeks about how much she loves this dang show. Like, she brought it up everyday. She
wanted asked forced me to borrow the first two seasons on DVD from her, so I started watching on Sunday. I’M HOOKED. I’ve been eating every meal while sitting on my couch, so I can soak up all of the creepy, forensic magic. It’s nothing like I have ever watched in my life (I’m a hardcore fan of all things Gossip Girl and Grey’s Anatomy). I’m only on the first season, too! Two thumbs up. Do you watch it?
Anyway, 99% of the eats featured in this week’s What I Ate Wednesday post were inhaled in front of episodes of the television drama.
As always, a big ”thanks, love!” to Jenn over at Peas and Crayons for hosting the weekly party
I’ve been all about honey lately. This week, I drizzled it on a whole wheat bagel thin topped with crunchy peanut butter, a sliced banana, and chia seeds.
This wouldn’t be a WIAW post without overnight oats, right?! I made a bowl this week with regular oats, flax seed oil, chia seeds, strawberry Greek yogurt, PVL strawberry banana whey powder, and acai berry juice. I topped it with a random mix – some dried cranberries, golden raisins, peanuts … I think there was cashew pieces in there too, maybe? I can’t remember. But I do know it was delicious, pink, and filling!
Another menu item this week? An egg white scramble featuring ground turkey, red onion, spinach and (lots!) of green pepper. I topped it with cheese and a pretty little drizzle of sriracha.
I made lentil soup in my slow cooker on Sunday (I’ll share the recipe next week!), and decided to pair it with brown long grain rice one night this week … making it kind of like jambalaya. So much comfort in such a little bowl
Can you tell cheese was on my latest grocery list? I realized I hadn’t bought it in months (I’ve started using a lot of nutritional yeast), but I developed a craving for it last week so I bought a bag of shredded goodness. I’ll be adding it sporadically to dishes until it’s all used up.
Thanks again to Jenn for the fabulous What I Ate Wednesday party. See you tomorrow, I’m off to
drool over look at some other WIAW’s!
