The Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap 2012




My post for The Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap 2012 will be posted later today, but in the meantime - I couldn't resist fitting in my weekly WIAW post. Enjoy.

 Figure 1. Breakfast: a bowl of Kellogg's All Bran, Arrowhead Mills puffed wheat, cocoa powder, a sliced banana, and almond + cow milk. Cocoa powder in cereal is amazing.

Figure 2. Mid-morning snack: Ezekiel Sprouted Grains toast with peanut butter.

Figure 3. Lunch (out to eat): a huge spinach salad with blue cheese, walnuts, green apples, and turkey bacon. A slice of house-made whole wheat bread on the side.

Figure 4. Afternoon snack: an apple, yo.

Figure 5. Dinner: leftover broccoli-spinach soup, Ezekiel Sprouted Grain toast with avocado and kosher salt, and leftover sweet potato-apple mash topped with slivered almonds and a drizzle of honey.

Figure 6. Dessert: a soy- and gluten-free double chocolate cranberry cookie from Sara @ Pidge's Pantry I received for the cookie swap. These.are.amazing.

And that concludes another What I Ate Wednesday (featuring what I ate Tuesday, December 11).

  3. That salad looks like a winner. I love stinky cheeses on salad - need to buckle down and get myself a package of gorgonzola at Publix so I can stop spending $6 a pop on lunches!

  6. I've never thought of putting avocado on toast, but I bet it would be pretty tasty. You really can't go wrong with avocado.

  9. Cocoa powder in cereal is a necessity :)! It's bringing that hint of "chocolate" feeling to breakfast. I actually enjoy it when not all of it is properly stirred in leaving a few cocoa blobs, haha.
