WIAW – Week 30

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!

Breakfast – Pumpkin overnight oats + pumpkin coffee


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!

Lunch – Peanut butter and jelly on whole wheat, pretzels, apple-cinnamon Chobani, 100 calorie pack of Blue Diamond almonds (buy these in bulk!), banana and water


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.

So easy!


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.
