Nothing clears your head like getting back to what you know. One of the things I know and love is…What I Ate Wednesday! It is of course hostessed each week by the lovely Jenn over at Peas & Crayons. Mozy on over and join the fun group that gathers there each week. Read some blogs and please be sure to leave some comments. That’s what we all live for!! ;-)
Without further adieu…
As I was saying on Sunday, my food life has been a jumble lately, but I am in the process of working hard to get back on track. Sunday night after our birthday party, I allowed myself one last little fling. It wasn’t actually such a bad fling, but fling it was.
A yummy pepper and egg sandwich with American cheese from Picasso’s. My favorite takeout sandwich. I enjoyed it. But I won’t be seeing another one for a while.
Monday morning, I was off to the races with being on track.
Fat free vanilla yogurt, Fiber One and blueberries I froze over the summer. I’m so glad I froze them. They will be delicious to use all winter. They’re really yummy in oatmeal!
Last night I tried something new. I love quinoa and I’ve had red quinoa in the cupboard for several months, but never made it. Last night, was the night. It looked so strange.
Cooked it up in veggie broth. It tastes a little different from the white, but still tasty.
Other salad fixin’s…pre cut bag lettuce. I really don’t like iceberg, but my friend Gail gave this to me before she left for Florida, so I used it. Green bell pepper, tomato, canned black beans, mozzarella cheese and leftover dressing from Picasso’s from last week. The lettuce did not taste that good and I realized that I am spoiled now with home cooked beans. The canned ones just did not taste as good.
I love having my salads in my Big Purple Bowl. They are so satisfying that I’m not usually looking for a snack in the evening. That’s a good thing!
Tuesday AM, I was in a hurry, so I just divided a Honeycrisp and had it with some almond butter. It’s amazing how filling that is and it really held me.
Short and sweet this week for WIAW. Just want you all to know that I am back on track with my food. Two days in a row on my exercise bike also. I feel better already.
Don’t forget now, go visit all the cool kids over at Peas & Crayons. They’re waiting and they’ve all prepared something tasty for you to look at. I’m heading there myself in a few minutes. I’m a food voyeur just like the rest of you. ;-)
