what i ate wednesday: issue 60

Can you believe it? This is my 60th WIAW anniversary. Here's to many more...

 Figure 1. Breakfast: a bowl of Kellogg's All Bran, Arrowhead Mills puffed wheat, cinnamon, a sliced banana, and cow's milk. This is my new favorite breakfast cereal combination.

Figure 2. Mid-morning snack: homemade peanut butter granola.

Figure 3. Lunch: a green leaf lettuce salad with 2 hard-boiled eggs, cottage cheese, veggies (raw zucchini, red onion, carrots, tomatoes), and dressed with red wine vinegar, brown mustard, and paprika.

Figure 4. Afternoon snack #1: carrot sticks and peanut butter with a side of course prep.

Figure 5. Afternoon snack #2: 100 calorie pack of popcorn and a berry-flavored sparkling water.

Figure 6. Dinner, courtesy of the boyfriend! seared chicken with herbs, steamed green beans, and roasted sweet potato fries with a side of ketchup for dipping.

Figure 7. Dessert: my usual, a dolce de leche sugar-free pudding topped with cool whip.

And that concludes another What I Ate Wednesday (featuring what I ate Tuesday, November 27).

  7. Mmm, I love hard boiled eggs and raw zucchini on salads. Most people look at me like I'm kooky for raw zucchini, but it's not too much different than cucumber, amiright?
