WIAW the 13th!

Posted by Jennifer (the student) on July 10, 2012 


Hello Everyone! Happy “What I Ate Wednesday”. Thank you to Jenn at Peas and Crayons for hosting the WIAW. These are my eats from Monday. It was a hot day that started with a headache.

This is what I ate:

Breakfast (6:15am)

Started with the very necessary Excedrin Migraine followed by coffee and a chocolate NuGo bar. Simple but tasty.


AM Snack (8:30am)

Half a grapefruit.

Lunch (11:45am)

Cashew veggie-turkey curry with brown rice, chips and a small green salad from the secret spot. This is one of my favorite meals that I don’t have very often and I think it cured my headache. 🙂

PM Snack (1:00pm)

Vanilla honey latte from Javatinis was yummy.

PM Vitamins (3:00pm)

I normally take my vitamins in the morning, but with a headache sometimes my stomach is touchy. I am always changing the vitamins I am taking but at the moment I am taking: Evening Primrose, Omega-3, L-Carnitine, B-12, CO Enzyme Q10, and a Cal, Mag, + Vit D. I buy most of my supplements from Trader Joe’s.

Dinner (6:00pm)

I forgot to take a picture, so this is a recycled photo of my husband’s lemon and ginger kale with sesame tofu with a side of avocado. (recipe here) We make this dish so often because it is simple and tastes great.

July’s theme is “Food, Fun & Fitness” and here is a link to my exercise log for the month. I am busy this month studying for my DTR exam, so my exercise schedule is sort at a bare minimum for now. Thank you for stopping by. I hope your day was full of healthy meals.

My 4th WIAW – Finals Week Edition!

Posted by Jennifer (the student) on May 8, 2012

Hello, everyone. Happy Wednesday! This is my forth WIAW and I am having so much fun joining in. Finals week is finally here and I am happy I was able to get this post together. Thank you to Jenn at Peas and Crayons for hosting the party!

This is what I ate:


Breakfast (6:45 am)

I had my usual coffee with hazelnut milk and stevia (and I actually had 2 cups, it is finals week after all), with a few slices of yummy homemade banana bread and blueberries. I received the banana bread from my friend Rosanne as part of a finals week care package.  Thank you Rosanne 🙂

Mid-Morning Snack (9:30 am)

A NuGo Dark –chocolate Chip Protein bar. I really like these bars for a quick snack.

Lunch (12:30 pm)

Miso Ramen Soup, while I was out running a few errands.

Mid-Afternoon Snack (3:00 pm)

Roasted Golden Beets. I love these from the farmers market.

Dinner (5:45 pm)

Homemade Potato Enchiladas with Beans. Super tasty and also part of my finals care package from Rosanne.

Dessert (7:00 pm)

My homemade “almost” ice cream. It is just blended bananas, peanut butter and cocoa powder put in the freezer for about an hour.

Thank you for joining me! I hope your day is full of healthy meals! 🙂
