What I Ate Wednesday, 1/15/14

It’s Wednesday and that means another WIAW post, of course! Here is what I ate today. Enjoy!

Breakfast

IMG_20140115_100611_624I switched up my usual breakfast today just for you guys! Because I had to work today I brought the components of this breakfast with me to work to eat whenever I had a break. I very rarely have time to eat my breakfast before work because well, I don’t get up early enough for all that. Usually I have to get up around 4:30am, but this morning I was able to sleep in until 6:30. Woohoo!

So, this is a toasted whole wheat english muffin with Kroger organic peanut butter, cinnamon, and a sliced banana on top. I used to eat this a lot and I had forgotten how yummy it is. Very simple, but tasty nonetheless. I also had an Americano with one raw sugar and some cream. Today at work we were trying to create a Valentine’s Day inspired drink, so I also had a few sips of a honey vanilla latte and a chocolate covered strawberry mocha (created by Lynda).

Lunch

I almost forgot to take a picture of this which is why it is half eaten. Oops! This is a Caesar salad (organic romaine lettuce, parmesan cheese, croutons, and Bolthouse Farms Caesar dressing). I also brought some red, seedless grapes and I just had water to drink. Before leaving work I made myself an iced soy chai latte to take home. I don’t usually prefer soy milk, but I think it is really delicious with chai. I did not get a picture of the drink. I’m sorry!

Dinner

This doesn’t look like a very impressive dinner, but it turned out pretty good. It’s Caramelized honey dijon chicken and broccoli bites.  I’ve been really into mustard lately, which is weird because I absolutely despised mustard, and pretty much every other condiment except for ketchup, as a child. This is my second time making this chicken and my boyfriend and I really enjoy it. The recipe can be found here. The broccoli bites are from a recipe I recently pinned on Pinterest. I’m always looking for new ways to cook vegetables and although this is definitely not the healthiest choice I think it’s better than no veges at all, right? I was actually thinking this would be a good one for my boyfriend when I first saw this recipe. He is even pickier than me about vegetables! Sure enough, he ended up liking it more than I did. I think they’re worth making, especially if you have a picky eater on your hands. I wouldn’t say it’s my favorite way to eat broccoli, but it was still good. Recipe here.

Snack/Dessert

Okay, I did NOT eat all of this, but I just wanted to show you all the remaining Christmas candy I still have that just sits there tempting me. The problem is, if there’s chocolate/sweets in the house then I’m going to eat it. Well, duh! I usually don’t buy sweets, unless I’m having a girl problem meltdown (TMI..I’m sorry). It wouldn’t be a problem if I could practice self-control with such things, but I can’t usually so I just don’t even go there. I like having these individually wrapped chocolates though because it’s easier to control yourself with these. I ended up eating one of the Ghirardelli dark chocolate’s. Nom!

Well, that is everything. I’m just sipping water from my hello kitty water bottle as I type this. Going to go watch some Sons of Anarchy and call it a night. Hope you all are having a great week.

Bows and Arrows,

Ashley
