WIAW~October 30~A Lot Of Cottage Cheese

Life is crazy enough, but when you somehow lose the draft of your post, it gets really frustrating.  However, I must have done something wrong here today, so I begin again.  I love Wednesdays because I get to be part of What I Ate Wednesday, the fun-filled food fest (or food filled fun fest) hostessed by the lovely Jenn at Peas & Crayons.

Let me get right to it before I lose everything again!!

Spooky Snacks and Healthy Halloween Treats

As the title suggests, it seems I’ve eaten a lot of cottage cheese lately.  I’m Ok with that because I really Like cottage cheese.  Maybe one week I’ll do an entire cottage cheese post.  We’ll see.  For the time being, let’s get started.

Diner breakfast no.1

Simple breakfast at the diner…scrambled eggs and yes, cottage cheese.

lunch salad

A yummy homemade salad with salad from my sister Ele and cottage cheese, of course!  I don’t know why but I think this photo is really pretty.  Natural light is the key, I think. Tasty too…the salad, not the light.

diner breakfast no.2

A mushroom and spinach omelette, sprinkled with parmesan cheese and a side of cottage cheese! I’m sensing a pattern here!

Subway lunch

One of my favorite lunches-Subway veggie delite.  On the bottom is pepper jack cheese toasted. Topped with spinach, tomatoes, onions green peppers and black olives. On top of that is the Southwest Chipotle sauce.  The Best!

Last but not least was yesterday’s breakfast…yes, I know when this one was.  An unexpected stop at Dunkin’ Donuts for breakfast/lunch.

DD breakfast

A veggie egg white flatbread.  My favorite. Accompanied by a pumpkin iced coffee.  It was so good.  It had been a while for both things.  I try to duplicate the pumpkin coffee at home but without much success. No cottage cheese in this meal, but don’t worry, it’ll show up again next week!

I’ve been working hard to stay on track with my food this week.  I’m feeling much more like I’m back in control.  It’s a good feeling.  We’ll see what kind of results I get when I go to my Weight Watchers meeting on Saturday.  It helps to keep me on the straight and narrow.

That’s it for What I Ate Wednesday for me this week.  Be sure to check out what everyone else is eating over at Peas & Crayons.  It’s great fun…You’ll enjoy yourself!

Happy What I Ate Wednesday!

  1. Ha Ha, you weren’t lying when you said lots of cottage cheese. Hey when your craving something theres no reason to try an avoid it =)

    For the recipe you asked about. I took 1/2 cup pumpkin puree, 1/2 cup almond milk, 1 tbsp. chia seeds, Nunaturals vanilla liquid stevia (or a dash of vanilla extract), 1/2 tsp. cinnamon, 1/4 tsp. ginger, and 1-2 tbsp. maple syrup. Let sit in fridge overnight or for at least 4 hours =)

  2. we have the same dunkin donuts order! lol except I get my coffee hot

  3. Haha another cottage cheese addict 😀 Nice to know somebody else out there!

  4. The salad does look lovely! I havent had cottage cheese in a long time but I am now going to buy some 🙂

  5. I’ve never tried cottage cheese! I can’t get over the way it looks!! I know that’s ridiculous.

  6. Well, aren’t you just full of cheesy information.

    The only thing I can report is that my pants are strangely larger this week. I think some creature has been playing tricks in my closet for Hallowe’en. GRRRR!

    Blessings and Bear hugs!

  7. Fran! So good to hear from you and Happy Halloween!!!!!!! My full name is Marie Mitchell Wallwork and my IG user name is BusyBuzzy. It will be so nice to keep up with you via IG.

    I am sometimes tempted to turn my comments back on because I miss all my blog friends, but then I get sucked in and lose time. Blogging and reading blogs is on the backburner for now, but who knows what the future holds. I started back at school and with a house and family etc, my time is limited. I am so glad we can reconnect this way. And I love cottage cheese too 🙂
