Hi there! It’s time for another edition of What I Ate Wednesday, hosted by the wonderful Jenn at Peas and Crayons. This month is all about sensible snacking … and while I’m not a huge snacker, one of my meals on Monday (the day I’m featuring in today’s post) felt like one giant snack fest.
I tried something new! I guess I could count this as achieving one of my goals for June, but it’s not much of a recipe, so I’m not sure if I will or not. I made egg white oats, after my sister raved about it to me on the weekend. I cooked 1/2 cup of oats (with just over 1 cup of water) in the microwave, and then stirred in 2 egg whites before microwaving for another 45 seconds. Then I stirred in a spoonful of chocolate protein powder, and kah blam, a protein packed breakfast. And so voluminous with the egg whites in there! This will be making regular appearances. I had it on Tuesday, too
This is the snacky meal I mentioned earlier. I wanted so many different things, so I just piled ‘em all onto one plate. I microwaved a sweet potato, and since I couldn’t decided toppings, I covered one half with plain Greek yogurt and the other half with crunchy peanut butter (I’m so glad I finally decided to try that combo one day). With that, I had a handful of carrots with this fabulous new Greek yogurt dip I found, and some cherries. I always know summer has officially arrived when I can start buying cherries again!
I had half of a spaghetti squash sitting in my fridge, and that was the plan for dinner. But … sometimes a girl just wants a sandwich. And that’s what this girl was craving for dinner when she walked in the door after work. It had been a hot day, so I wanted something cold and quick. In that tomato tortilla is two eggs (with a little bit of cheese), sliced turkey breast, and a bit cream cheese as the glue to hold it all together. I had some steamed veggies on the side with mustard on top. It looks a little gross … you make think it’s a little gross … but I do it all the time!
There! Done like dinner Enjoy your Wednesday – don’t forget to check out some other WIAW’s!
