Possibly the most fun day of the week is Wednesday because of…What I Ate Wednesday! That’s the wonderful party brought to us each week by our lovely Hostess Jenn at Peas & Crayons. It’s quite a high old time, so be sure to follow the link, look around, leave some comments and over all enjoy yourself! It’s pretty much the most fun you can have for free!
So many times I try to save a good day of food choices, you know pretty and appetizing looking, to include for WIAW. This week I’m showing you some random foods from throughout the week. Tasty for sure, but not totally cohesive. Never the less…here we go!
Natural light for a change! It enhances the look of my oatmeal with blueberries. Yum!
Note to self…Although the individual packages of Barney Butter are handy and of course tasty, 1 is really not enough for 2 rice cakes. I didn’t want to spend the Points for another package so I made do. It was enough for a quick lunch on the run. Next time, a sandwich round instead. The same number of points and it would have seemed like more. Hey, I’m a work in progress!
The assembled pieces of one of my usual salads. Bulgur and home cooked garbanzo beans add fiber, protein and help to fill me up!
The Really Big Salad and my beloved Big Purple Bowl makes its appearance. I polish this off with great efficiency! It actually does take a while to eat so it helps with filling me up and keeping me satisfied.
Small golden delicious apples, all washed up and ready for Crock-ette to be made into wonderful spicy goodness.
This is so good. I usually top it with fat-free vanilla yogurt. I’ve got some fresh strawberries to add also. Going to be a tasty snack tonight! Another fun fact. I made a stop at Goodwill and scored another Crock-ette which I will be giving to my sister, Ele. I was so excited to find it.
Ralph decided he wanted to make a trip to the Mall and suggested lunch. My brain seized up immediately. Eating at the Mall can be difficult and he was talking about the Food Court. Lucky for me they have a Green Leafs there.
It’s a little pricey, but it was a pretty good choice for me on Weight Watchers. I got the “fancy” greens, chopped egg, tomatoes, roasted red peppers and shredded cheese. I got a fat-free tomato basil dressing and a wheat roll. It was very tasty. I felt better, because I was worried I’d have no decent choices. Sometimes if you just stand back and think for a minute, the good choice will present itself!
It’s a rather ordinary collection of foods, but it is balanced. Lots of fruit and veggies and lots of fiber. It’s also keeping me on track with Weight Watchers which is always my focus. It’s actually making me hungry as I look at my photos! 😉
So I’d better get out of here and feed myself…and Ralph, too of course! Please be sure to take the leap over to Peas & Crayons, look around, feast your eyes and leave some comments. It truly is what we all live for! Tell them I sent you!
Happy What I Ate Wednesday!!
