what i ate wednesday: issue 30

Today is a big day.
Today I have done 30 WIAW posts.
Today I have done 30 years of living.

Happy less serious birthday to me.

 Figure 1. Breakfast: a bowl of Kashi GoLean Original mixed with Post Great Grains Raisins, Dates, & Pecans cereal, 1/2 banana, and almond milk. I also had 1/2 banana (un-pictured) before my morning run.

Figure 2. Lunch: a spinach salad with grape tomatoes, leftover roasted broccoli, red onion, chickpeas, and salt & pepper cashews tossed in white wine vinegar, salt, and Herbs de Provence. A slice of whole wheat toast on the side.

Figure 3. Afternoon snack: a Fuji apple and PB2.

Figure 4. Dinner: a sweet potato with feta cheese, toasted pecans, and a drizzle of honey with a side of spicy roasted cauliflower

Figure 5. Dessert: dark chocolate.

And that concludes another What I Ate Wednesday (featuring what I ate Tuesday, April 17). On menu today (my birthday): cake, fish tacos, and french fries...

  25. Happy birthday! I'm sure you get this all the time, but you seriously don't look 30! You could have said it was your 25th birthday, and I would have believed you. ;)

    I love your stuffed sweet potato idea! I'm always boring and just roast mine with olive oil and salt - I need to try more creative recipes like this!
