WIAW – Week 12

Happy half-way through the week everyone! This week is actually moving along quite nicely, & not dragging like usual. I hope it’s feeling that way for you, too.

Since it’s Wednesday, it’s time for another What I Ate Wednesday. You can read more about WIAW on Jen’s blog, & check out what other bloggers have been grubbin’ on.

Breakfast – Overnight oats & coffee

I should really just start excluding breakfast from my WIAW posts, since it’s always the same thing. I can’t help it; nothing keeps me full for as long as overnight oats do & I love the grab & go convenience.

In today’s mix:

  • 2/3 c. old fashioned oats
  • ~1 c. non-fat milk
  • 1 tbsp. chia seeds
  • 1 tbsp. vanilla Chobani

Toppings (added in the morning):

  • A generous handful of peanut butter Cheerios
  • A handful of walnuts
  • 1 tsp. White Chocolate Wonderful peanut butter (I’m obsessed!!!)
  • Drizzle of honey

Lunch – Strawberry banana Chobani & a banana

I wasn’t feeling super-great around lunch time, so I opted not to eat the leftovers I had planned. (I actually didn’t feel that great after eating dinner last night, so the thought of downing the same food wasn’t appealing!)

Anyway, I don’t usually eat only a yogurt & banana for lunch, but it felt like a safe option & I surprisingly wasn’t left feeling all that hungry throughout the afternoon, so it did the trick!

DinnerChicken ‘N Peppers Pasta Skillet

By the time I got around to making dinner, my appetite was starting to return. I felt well enough to attend spin class, so I was experiencing post-workout hunger on top of the fact that I hadn’t eaten much throughout the day.

This dinner (recipe can be found using link above!) was fantastic. It combined pasta, chicken, & bell peppers – three of my favorites! – into a filling, easy-to-make meal!

I definitely went back for seconds!

Last but not least…

I told you I’m obsessed with this peanut butter!

What was the best thing you ate today? Healthiest? Most indulgent?

      It’s peanut butter with a white chocolate mixed in! You can’t really taste “chocolate”… the difference in flavor is very subtle! I got it at Target! The Dark Chocolate Dreams flavor (from the same company) is delicious too!

      I haven’t tried the cinnamon raisin! It seems like the stores around me are slooowly adding new flavors, so maybe that will arrive soon!

      I’ve only ever tried white chocolate wonderful & dark chocolate dreams — I agree, both are fantastic!

      It’s so good! I JUST found it at Target this past weekend, so keep your eyes peeled!

      I love chia seeds! They are high in fiber & omega-3s! Also, I think they add a nice texture to my oatmeal!
