what i ate wednesday: issue 39

 Figure 1. Breakfast: a bowl (times 2*) of Cheerios mixed with (hidden) Post Great Grains Raisins, Dates, & Pecans cereal, 1/2 sliced banana, and almond milk. *I have a new cereal-eating strategy (yes, I have eating strategies): because I like A LOT of milk and hate soggy cereal, I started separating my portion into two bowls and wait to add milk in the second until I'm finished with the first. Just when your cereal is starting to get soggy, you get to dive into a second crispy bowl. Brilliant. So brilliant it is worth the sad half-empty bowl photo.

Figure 2. Lunch: an Amy's Sonoma veggie burger drizzled in ketchup and a Golden Delicious apple dipped in a bowl of PB2.

Figure 3. Afternoon snack: a banana and homemade spicy honey roasted almonds.

Figure 4. Dinner: two runny eggs, a whole wheat English muffin topped with goat cheese, and asparagus sauteed in olive oil, salt, and smoked paprika.

Figure 5. Dessert: plain Greek yogurt, dark chocolate pudding mousse, and homemade healthy peanut butter honey granola.

And that concludes another What I Ate Wednesday (featuring what I ate Monday, June 18).

  17. Eggs for dinner is always a good idea, especially because I seem to enjoy them more and more lately, but never am in the mood to cook them for breakfast! Makes zero sense I know. Anyway, great eats as usual Sara!

    1. girl, it is just jello dark chocolate pudding mousse. sugar free this shit is only 60 calories and while it may have chemical components it is absolutely delicious (and actually less ingredients than the regular pudding). go get some and do it now.
