I have missed being a part of the link ups that I love to join and especially What I Ate Wednesday. It’s always so much fun. I did join back in last week but this week is feeling even better. Be sure to stop over to Jenn’s party at Peas and Crayons when you’re finished here to join in the fun! Let’s get started.
Let’s start with a snack…why not!
It doesn’t look as good as it tasted. I found plain Greek yogurt in individual containers at Bottom Dollar. I add cinnamon (of course!) and honey. This is so good and it feels like I’m eating something I shouldn’t. All of that protein is very satisfying.
I’m getting into smoothies lately. But with a non-freezing freezer at the moment, I can’t buy frozen fruit…well, I can but it isn’t frozen for long. Ralph bought me this mango at the local Wawa. I thought it was a great idea to turn it into a smoothie.
This was ok. The mango didn’t really add any flavor to the smoothie. If it wasn’t for the cinnamon and nutmeg it wouldn’t have tasted much like anything. I’ll finish off the mango but I’ll cross it off the list. Guess I’ll just have to deal with defrosted frozen fruit. At least there’s some flavor.
Yesterday it was snowing…what a novelty! I decided that a nice pot of black bean soup (so easy!) was in order.
It makes enough for several meals especially since it’s too spicy for Ralph, but in truth it’s not really spicy. He’s just not a spicy guy…at least when it comes to food!
This is what I did with it.
I put the black bean soup over quinoa. It is so good and filling. I love this every time I make it. I’m getting hungry looking at this photo as I type!
I’ve talked lately about feeling not on track and kind of out of sorts. I do want to say that things are starting to come around. I’m feeling much more in control of my food and life in general. If the snow and cold would ever go away, I’d be all set!
That’s it for me for today. Be sure to head over to Peas and Crayons to see what Jenn and the other kids have to share.
Happy What I Ate Wednesday!
