WIAW: Quite a Treat

Aaaaaaand we’re back, for another edition of What I Ate Wednesday Tuesday!

Not a ton of green happening this week, but hey, I did alright. Plenty of nutritious eats paired with yummy treats. Let’s check out the goods…

Breakfast

Love Grown Foods Hot Oats (peach almond vanilla flavor, yum!) + coffee

After I snapped that photo, I added a big spoonful of peanut butter to the oats…made them 10x better than they already are.

Mid-Morning Snack

An apple + a small handful of unpictured almonds

Simple, yet satisfying.

Lunch

If I wasn’t so lazy, I swear I’d probably make chicken and/or tuna salad for lunch every day. Every time I make it, I’m totally in love with the stuff.

I made this chicken salad slightly different, using what I had available: a can of chicken, finely chopped onion, celery, carrots, and cucumbers, dried cranberries, green grapes, dijon mustard, ~1 tbsp light mayo, salt & pepper.

Then I scooped them it all up with a generous serving of wheat thins.

Mid-Afternoon Snack

Another favorite of mine…cottage cheese with chunk pineapple and fresh strawberries.

Usually, I enjoy my Greek yogurt as a snack, but every once in a while I like switching it up with some cottage cheese.

I also required a little extra sweetness after the cottage cheese…

I got this dark chocolate coconut cream egg from the “work Easter bunny” last week and it’d been sitting on my desk ever since. I decided to go for it (I’m hit or miss with coconut) and it totally hit the spot.

Dinner

We were treated to a delicious dinner, courtesy of our pals Josh & Erika (aka, our favorite OBX travel partners) last night! On the menu were some side salads,

which got topped with this, umm, incredibly delicious salad dressing…

And THE most amazing pulled chicken. Ever.

With lots of scoops tortilla chips to scoop up the good stuff, of course.

Dessert

Shortly after dinner, we also had dessert, which was quite a treat. Have you guys ever seeeeeen this Blue Bunny Red Velvet Cake ice cream?!?

To be honest, I wasn’t even sure I’d like it since red velvet is typically chocolate based and I’m not a fan of chocolate ice cream. But this stuff? Oh no…THIS stuff was fantastic.

I thoroughly enjoyed every last bite of my portion.

So there we have it! Another successful WIAW Tuesday with lots of yumminess. Just how I like it. Winking smile

    That ice cream was on 50% clearance sale at my grocery store last week and I was SO close to buying it! Now i just might have to :)

    I’ve been loving coconut coffee lately! Green Mountain Island Coconut in my Keurig. Yum!!

    There’s a super work-intensive veggie egg salad that my family always makes around the holidays that makes me really wish I was willing to put the time and effort into making it more often because it’s seriously delicious. But I guess having it only come out a few times a year just makes those occasions more special. And I’m definitely with you about not being a fan of chocolate ice cream – usually I find it seriously lacking in the chocolate flavor department. Vanilla all the way :)

    So feel you about chocolate ice cream, I’m not sure what it is, but I’m a vanilla girl for sure!
    Your eats are looking delicious yesterday!
    Yum.
    And a coconut cream egg, I loooove coconut anything so that would totally be my thing. I want to find those now. :)

    Every one of Duff’s ice cream creations makes my mouth water. I’m not a red velvet fan (I know) but all of the other ones look delicious! I always see them in Walmart but never buy them. I wish they made buffalo blue cheese dressing! In my opinion, tuna salad + red onions + relish = keys to the best salads.

    Well I see quite a bit of green going on this post! :) Green apples TOTALLY count!

    And I’ve never had red velvet cake, but the sinless cake batter ice cream from Cold Stones used to be my favorite flavor!

    I love, love, LOVE the Ben & Jerry’s Red Velvet Cake ice cream, so I’m definitely on a mission to find this one and give it a try! YUM! :)
