WIAW: Week 52

Wednesday already?! I’ll take it! Hooray for 3 day weekends and short work weeks!

Be sure to visit Peas and Crayons (who just had a baby – congrats to Jenn!) to check out other blogs participating in the What I Ate Wednesday link-up.


 

Here’s a look at what I ate Wednesday Tuesday!

BreakfastPumpkin chocolate chip baked oatmeal + pumpkin coffee

As soon as September 1st hits, it’s pumpkin all the way! I made a few batches of my favorite seasonal baked oatmeal on Monday, so I had a yummy breakfast all ready to go on Tuesday. A cup of Green Mountain pumpkin spice coffee rounded out the meal.

AM SnackFruit cup + cupcake

How’s a fruit cup + a cupcake for balance?! haha I bought these frozen fruit cups at the grocery store this week because I had a double coupon and they were on sale. They’re just “regular” fruit, but I’m a sucker for anything pre-portioned that saves me time and energy.

One of my co-workers brought in “minion” cupcakes. I didn’t take a picture, but they looked like this:

LunchLeftover veggie baked ziti

I made this recipe Monday, and it worked out to be some yummy leftovers for Tuesday. I’ve always been a fan of baked ziti; this version is just amped up a bit.

PM Snack/Pre-workout SnackString cheese + FRS energy drink

I had just enough time to get in a quick snack before BodyPump yesterday. A full review (+ giveaway!) of these FRS drinks is coming soon!

DinnerRaspberry walnut salmon, green beans, + dinner roll

To make this salmon, I just coated a large filet with a few tbsp. of raspberry preserves and a handful of chopped walnuts… so easy! (I bake my salmon by putting it in a cold oven, setting it to 400*, and leaving it in for 20-25 minutes… it turns out perfectly.)

DessertChocolate-covered banana bites

This was another new find at the grocery store this week. They’re yummy and help to satisfy my raging after-dinner sweet tooth.

Have you picked up any “new to you” items at the grocery store lately?

    My mom loves those banana bites! She says it’s the perfect way to end her day on a sweet note so she doesn’t “overindulge” on things. My favorite new-to-me find in the grocery store are the coconut chobani. I love them.

      I’m not a fan of coconut, so I haven’t tried them! My husband wants to try them but we can only find them in a four pack and not the single cups and he doesn’t want to “commit” to 4 without knowing if he’ll like them! lol
