WIAW: Fruity Edition

 
Happy Wednesday!!
 
I’m enjoying this lovely Wednesday at home, which is basically the most awesome middle-of-the-week treat ever. Thanks to having to work last Saturday, I had some flex time to burn and I decided that I might as well break up my week. Although sadly it’s not like I’m going to get to sit in my PJs and marathon TV shows all day. I actually have some work to do on a side project that I’m working on.
 
I’m still staying in my PJs though, so I consider it a half-win.
 
Anyway, let’s get to the REAL point of Wednesday!

It’s What I Ate Wednesday time! As per usual, these were my eats from Tuesday! It’s now gotten to the point where my coworkers will remind me if it’s Tuesday and I look like I’m about to eat my lunch without taking a picture.
 
But if you’re not familiar with WIAW, I highly encouraged you check out Jenn’s blog for more information about this awesome blog phenomenon, and to see what other awesome bloggers are eating too! Thanks Jenn!

 
Apparently my Tuesday was all about the fruits! I didn’t even notice until now! But I definitely got more than my daily serving of fruits in!!

Breakfast

PB&J Breakfast Oatmeal

The usual – plain oats with frozen mixed berries, jam, nut butter (this one was white chocolate almond butter) and cinnamon. I seriously never get tired of this flavor combo!

Snack #1

For some reason I was a total snack beast yesterday. Around 10:30am I had a rice cake with a little bit of natural peanut butter, and then around 2pm I had a banana. Both of which I scarfed without a picture, so you’ll have to use your imagination.

Lunch

BBQ pork salad with apple lunch

Today’s kale and spinach salad was topped with herbed feta, tomatoes, hawaiian pulled pork, and ranch dressing. Paired with a pink lady apple (my fave!) and some blog reading! I made the hawaiian pulled pork a few days ago and it made a TON so I’ve been trying to come up with creative ways to use it up! Luckily it tastes awesome on salads!!

Snack #2

Greek yogurt with granola snack

Recycled picture, but it was the same snack as always – greek yogurt topped with homemade granola. Another snack I never get sick of!

Dinner

Lemon, artichoke and sundried tomato quinoa

Dinner was kind of random, because I really wasn’t feeling all that inspired by anything in our fridge. So I whipped up some quinoa, and just started mixing. Somehow I ended up with this really tasty lemon, sundried tomato and artichoke quinoa! I wont tell you exactly what’s in it yet, because I think I might have to share this recipe! It was so simple and incredibly tasty!

Dessert

Healthy berry cobbler

Just in case I hadn’t had enough fruit today, I made my Lent dessert – frozen mixed berries that I heated for about 1.5 minutes, topped with a sprinkle of homemade granola for a crunch. Healthy berry cobbler!

Workout

3 mile half marathon training

My workout came in 2 parts today. I started with an awesome 3 mile run after work. I was worried that it was going to stay chilly and gloomy all day, but by mid-afternoon the sun had come out and dried up all the rain (and the itsy bitsy spider…?) and the weather was perfect for running. So I got in a quick 3 miles before I headed off to my favorite yoga class!

Yoga

And now I’m going to get feet comments or creepy people looking for pictures of feet.

But regardless, yoga was amazing, as usual. I seriously think this is the best yoga instructor I’ve ever had! She even remembered that 2 weeks ago I asked her a question about positioning, and came around to check and make sure the suggestions she gave me were helping!

Well there you have it – my fruit-filled eats and my feet-filled workouts! haha. I hope you all have a great Wednesday!

So tell me: What did you eat today? What did your workouts look like?

    Yum! That porridge looks so good! I love quinoa too. Your day was so much healthier than mine! I had choc chip pancakes for breakfast. It was a treat because I went out with my mum…and they were gooooood! I haven’t tried yoga yet, but I’m really considering it lately. A bit worried about going into a class full of people though! I’m usually a loner worker-out-erer.

      The thing I love about yoga is that the room is always dark, so if you’re tucked away in the back, no one can see you!

    Love having days off in the middle of the week! I was a snack monster yesterday too, don’t know why but just happens. Gotta listen to the body, right?

      Exactly! Sometimes the snack beast just hits you!

    It’s definitely a beautiful day to not be at work! I hope you enjoy it! All of your foods are making me hungry since I am looking at them and postponing work. I am definitely a huge snacker and people will usually find me nibbling on something. They’re easier to pack and eat than a huge lunch or dinner at work.

    Make sure to share that recipe!

    I’m jealous you have flex time! Not gonna happen in education (but we have scheduled breaks…so can’t complain)
    This is random, but speaking of creepy comments: I’ve noticed that I have search results on my blog for “shelf bra selfie” because I posted about working out braless in a shelf bra tank once. HOW AWKWARD!!

      Honestly it happens pretty randomly. My old job used to get a TON of flex which was so handy when I wanted to take vacation. Also, that’s hilarious!!
