What I Ate Wednesday #17

I've officially given up on good WIAW title names... For now...
But, anyways! This will be my last WIAW of summer break. Next WIAW will be my first WIAW of the school year! My last high school school year...
Bittersweet? Very.

But, let's get on to the past week's yummy foods, shall we?
Thanks to Jenn for always hosting this event full of delicious foods from around the world! One of my favorite parts of the week!
Keep in mind, I eat double (maybe even triple?) the amount of watermelon each week that a human should. I just don't photograph it.
(Hey, don't blame me! Blame the food stores for not being able to sell it year-round!! Must get my fix in before it's too late and I have to wait another year!!)
8/23/12 - Breakfast: this is what I do when I want a peanut butter and Fluff sandwich, but know just a sandwich post-workout won’t really fill me; cinnamon roll protein egg white {stovetop} oatmeal with the usual + white chocolate peanut butter & Marshmallow Fluff. As delicious as it looks.
8/23/12 - Lunch: ~recovery win! Used a more calorie-dense, 100% whole wheat bread, which is one of my favorite breads ever... And was also a "fear food" for me for awhile.
But, I'll happily say that is no-more! So proud of myself.
Turkey sandwich with light spread cheese, veggies and spicy mustard! Steamed fresh veggies & grilled chicken with plain Greek yogurt + ranch powder on the side.
So. Good. Nothing better than a delicious sandwich with lots of vegetables and proteins alongside!
8/24/12 - Breakfast: a small bowl of plain Greek yogurt mixed with milk chocolate protein powder + watermelon, banana and grapes + pumpkin flax granola + some cereals + cinnamon + a drizzle of melted Biscoff spread, with a multi-grain sandwich thin topped with Biscoff spread & Dark Chocolate Dreams, banana, cinnamon and pumpkin flax granola on the side!
Love switching up my breakfasts/meals and listening to my body!
8/24/12 - Lunch: the best balance.
 How could I pass up pizza and what not when my mom gets certain ones that she knows I’LL like!? This is my favorite part of a NORMAL healthy lifestyle; not feeling guilty when eating what I truly want!
Chicken carbonara & spinach and feta artisan pizzas, spinach & feta breadstick thingy, and veggies!
8/25/12 - Breakfast: milk chocolate (protein powder!) banana Biscoff/dark chocolate peanut butter omelet (1 whole egg + 1 egg white) stuffed with spinach (yay greens!!) + banana slices + pumpkin flax granola, with a toasted slice of 100% whole wheat bread topped with Biscoff spread & dark chocolate peanut butter, banana and pumpkin flax granola on the side.
Lots of protein, healthy fats, and complex carbs!
8/26/12 - Breakfast: chocolate almond protein egg white oatmeal with pumpkin flax granola + some cereals I love + banana slices + a bit of plain Greek yogurt + cinnamon + melted Biscoff spread.
This... was freaking delicious. I love my weird oatmeal combinations!
8/27/12 - Breakfast: my first ever baked oatmeal!
8/28/12 - Breakfast: um... Heaven.
Cinnamon peanut butter protein egg white {stovetop} oats with pumpkin flax granola + some random cereals + banana slices + a bit of plain Greek yogurt + cinnamon + melted Biscoff spread.
All inside a nearly-empty Dark Chocolate Dreams jar.
I think I'm gonna call OIAJ, HIAJ from now on.
OIAJ = Oats in a Jar... HIAJ = Heaven in a Jar.
I think it fits it well.
8/28/12 - Snack/Afternoon Pick-Me-Up: healthy, easy, homemade {low calorie!} chocolate almond milk protein ice cream for a pre-dinner afternoon pick-me-up!
This was INCREDIBLY yummy! I put it over some plain Greek yogurt and a broken Magic Pop cake (for crunch!), and topped it with banana slices, melted Biscoff spread, deliciously addictive cinnamon Cheerios, and a dash of cinnamon. A random experiment that turned into something DELICIOUS!
8/29/12 - Breakfast/currently devouring: post-workout banana bread & Biscoff (spread) low calorie, flour-less oat pancakes with an egg white scramble alongside!

Oh, and guess what else happened within the past seven days?
I started my new job at Aeropostale! I'll admit that it gets quite boring throughout the day, but otherwise, I like it a lot more than my other job already! Plus, the deals I get are incredible! 50% off of every new floor set, on top of my everyday/every month discounts?! Yes, please!
... And, yes, I already bought myself some adorable clothes!
I got my white laced sweater, neon yellow-green hoodie, and blue & purple flannel a size bigger so they fit comfortably. I'm so glad I did.
The lace leggings are SO comfortable, and for $8, they were completely worth it!
(The purple thing is a simple cami!)

Ohhhhhh, and I might as well say that my workouts are here, as always! 

Well, that's all for now, loves! Happy WIAW, Wednesday, and birthday... if it's, you know, your birthday! 


  1. I love the eats, but I love the plate with your name on it more.

    Happy Wednesday to you!
