First WIAW of 2014

Happy Wednesday!

I haven’t joined the What I Ate Wednesday link-up in a while—and I managed to photograph my eats yesterday—so I figured, why not?! Here’s a look at What I Ate Wednesday Tuesday.



Breakfast is the same ol’, same ol’ around here… overnight oats. Every now and then, I add cereal into the rotation, but overnight oats do the best job of keeping me full throughout the entire morning. In case you’re wondering, my overnight oats are a mix of old-fashioned oats, plain Greek yogurt, chia seeds, and low-fat milk. (I don’t have the exact measurements; I just “eyeball” it.) I topped my oats with peanut butter, semisweet chocolate chips, and a drizzle of honey. The cup of coffee goes without saying!

AM Snack


I love these little Fiber One bars—the brownies, lemon bars, and cinnamon coffee cake are all yummy! They are small and not all that filling, but they make for a good snack with a second cup of coffee in the mid-morning.



I packed leftovers from dinner on Monday (stuffed pepper soup), but I ended up having to order lunch at work and eating a salad. This was a small victory for me as I passed on the pizza that was there. Passing up pizza wasn’t easy, but I just tried to keep in mind that it’s something I can eat any time (like this weekend!), and I didn’t need to have it in that moment. I also had a cup of pineapple Chobani.




Following our meal plan for the week, I made baked Caesar chicken for dinner with green beans and mashed potatoes (this dinner makes for great leftovers, too!). I also enjoyed a small glass of Syrah… I needed something to take the chill off my bones caused by our –15* wind chills and red wine did the trick!



As always, I had to end the day with something sweet. A chocolate-covered pretzel from my Christmas stocking made for a yummy dessert.

How often—if at all—do you order lunch out at work (or go out to eat at a restaurant)?

      Yep, the whole “ordering out” thing is such a foreign concept in the teaching world! Where I work now, some people order out EVERY day… I am far too cheap for that!

      This was one of the first times I was actually able to put that type of thinking to use… it’s just pizza. :-)

    I tried overnight oats once, and they just didn’t work for me like the hot ones do. I go out for lunch at work maybe once or twice a month-sometimes it’s nice to skip my lunch workout and just grab a book and some tunes and de-stress in public. It’s nice to have some decadent me time! I always skip the catered in food when we have it though-forget food that appeals to the masses, I want food that appeals to me, and if I don’t get to pick it, then forget it!

    Looks like a great day of eats! And great job on the willpower today! That’s always the hardest part for me. I usually do a good job of bringing my lunch nearly every day, but I have a harder time when we have a work meeting or something and pizza is delivered to us! Especially since my work doesn’t usually splurge on the salads or extras. So it’s pizza or starve!

      I’m the same way… I always pack but then if something is provided for free, I have a hard time turning it down!
