Oh, hello. Didn’t see you there
Happy Wednesday! It’s What I Ate Wednesday time (thanks Jenn!) and I’m so ready to drool over everyone’s posts. So. Ready.
(*cue today’s pictures that decided to hang out in the left column instead of going over to the centre of the post. UGH.*)
I love this month’s theme! This week’s post is a little bit all over the place, I couldn’t possibly remember to take photos everyday … but I think there are a few summer staples in there!
Pizza. That’s obviously a summer staple, right? I pulled out my countertop pizza maker and made this one with a whole wheat tortilla, organic tomato sauce, broccoli, corn, black beans, green peppers, and feta. Olives would have been the perfect addition … but I was out. Oh well! This was still delicious – and packed with nutrients!
Pita Pit shouldn’t be considered a staple, but eating outside during the summer certainly should be! I grabbed this 6″ whole wheat pita for lunch the other day and enjoyed it at a picnic table at work. In there: turkey, lettuce, onion, cucumbers, green olives, black olives, pineapple, alfalfa sprouts, mushrooms, tomatoes, feta cheese, and tzatziki. My friends always make fun of me because I get every vegetable available, and as a result, spill all over myself while I eat. This was no different.
Eggs aren’t a summer staple. For me, they’re a daily staple. Honestly. I’ve actually considered the fact that I could turn into a chicken one day. Here’s two poached eggs on some whole grain bread (I rarely use toast for poached eggs), sliced turkey breast and MacLaren’s Imperial Sharp Cheese (MY FAVORITE!).
A small bowl of various whole wheat pastas (aka the end of several bags), organic tomato sauce, and a grilled chicken breast. Not very summer staple-y. But still delicious.
And the creme de la creme of summer staples … I present frozen yogurt. I had a crappola day at work yesterday (involving falling down some stairs oh so ungracefully), and decided this was necessary. In there: Red Velvet/New York Cheesecake, strawberries, crumbled Coffee Crisp, chocolate chips, and maraschino cherries. It was an emotional eating fest. And I wanted it that way
Done! Oh, how I love Wednesdays. Can’t wait to check out some other WIAW posts later on today!
Have a wonderful day, everyone!
