Phew! I can’t believe I’ve been participating in What I Ate Wednesday for 30 weeks!
Jenn chose the theme “Spooky Snacks + Healthy Halloween Treats” for this month. While I can’t say it’s healthy, I’ve definitely been hitting one Halloween treat hard this week – candy corn!
In the mix for my overnight oats:
- 1/2 c. old-fashioned oats
- 1 heaping tbsp. pumpkin
- 1 tbsp. vanilla Chobani
- Enough milk to get everything well-mixed
In the morning, I added:
- Peanut butter Cheerios (another item I’ve been eating a lot of!)
- A few chocolate chips
- 1 tsp. peanut butter
- Drizzle of honey
The pumpkin coffee came compliments of a Green Mountain K-Cup.
I really loved this flavor combination and plan to make it again tomorrow, too!
I ate the sandwich, pretzels, and yogurt at lunch.
This afternoon, I actually had a sub cover my classes while I worked on some curriculum “stuff” with our department head. It’s always nice to have a little change up in my normal schedule!
I ended up eating the almonds and banana at the end of the day.
After work, I had to run to Target to do a little shopping for our nephew.
I got home around 4:00PM, and immediately consumed a bowl of peanut butter Cheerios, a few Triscuits + sharp cheddar slices, and a handful or two three of candy corn. I don’t know what came over me, but I was ravenous.
I did a little bit of blog reading, then my eyes started getting heavy. I had planned on going for a run, but the thought of a nap sounded so appealing. Shockingly, I still forced myself to run!
I prepped dinner, threw some laundry in the washer, and headed out to complete just over 2 miles.
Once the run was done and Stewie was walked, dinner was ready… perfect timing!
Dinner – Turkey meatloaf, green beans, and brown rice
To make this meatloaf, I used this recipe for inspiration.
After preheating the oven to 375*, I combined the following ingredients:
- 1 lb. lean, ground turkey
- 1 egg
- 1/2 c. water
- 1/2 packet of chicken stuffing mix
- 1 tbsp. BBQ sauce
- Salt and pepper to taste
Bake for an hour, then dig in.
I served the meatloaf with a big portion of green beans and brown rice.
Dessert – Vanilla Chobani, vanilla cupcake Goldfish, chocolate chips, honey
This evening snack is a little bit of sugar-overload, but it’s super tasty and a better option than the Oreos I downed for dessert last night!
Time to go pack up some leftovers for my lunch tomorrow! Enjoy the rest of your evening.
What’s your favorite “healthy” dessert? I’ve got to stop digging into the candy corn… seriously.
