I think it’s been quite some time since I last did a WIAW post, hasn’t it?
For those of you who may not be familiar, WIAW is…What I Ate Wednesday! However, I have no idea when this day of eats was that I documented. I’m pretty sure I meant to share this last week but then I forgot. #storyofmyliferightnow
These days, there really is no “typical” day of eats for me. Some days, I do pretty good on balancing out my meals and getting in my veggies. Then there are other days (like this past Sunday) when I literally only ate donuts, a leftover sub, cereal, and ice cream throughout the whole day. Needless to say, I went to bed not exactly feeling my best that day!
But it happens. I don’t have the time these days to put a ton of thought into my meals like I once used to. And honestly, I don’t really have the desire to either. What’s important to me is that I work on hitting all of the food groups (and not only hitting the carbs group like Sunday…) and am eating things that are both enjoyable and give me the energy to power through the day.
So that said…here’s a recent day of eats from a day I was working from home. It felt so strange trying to remember to document everything I ate, seeing as it used to basically be second nature to me!
Oatmeal with blueberries and peanut butter + a DD iced coffee (2 pumps caramel swirl and skim milk)
Oatmeal will definitely start making more of an appearance now that the weather is cooling down a bit (or so they say?!). I like making a batch of Creamy Crockpot Steel Cut Oatmeal and dividing it up for the week (I get 4 servings out of a batch!).
A leftover pancake heated up and topped with Justin’s vanilla almond butter (my faaaaaavorite)
Turkey & provolone wraps with mayo + some avocado and two clementines
I’ve been doing a LOT of deli meat + cheese wraps lately. And I always slather them all up in mayo because it’s just my jam.
Vanilla yogurt with some granola
And a couple of blueberry munchkins because…I’m a tad addicted.
Crockpot Cheesy Chicken Enchilada Rice Bowls (are you sick of seeing this meal around here yet?)
It’s just so easy to put together, you can’t beat it for weeknights!
A Kodiak Cakes Double Dark Chocolate Minute Muffin topped with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and caramel
And this. was. divine.
I don’t totally love the muffin on its own, but when it’s topped with a little something creamy (like ice cream!) then it’s out of this world. I also bought the blueberry muffin but haven’t tried it yet.
How about you guys? What have you been eating and loving lately?
