Hello Everyone. Happy What I Ate Wednesday!  I am sharing my meals from Easter, which were super simple. I had a midterm Friday night and Saturday, so I was just happy to have it very easy. Also, our day was filled with many little disasters from a dead battery and an exploding shower head, just to name a few. 🙂  Thank you to Jenn at Peas and Crayons for hosting the WIAW.

This is what I ate:

Breakfast (7:00am)

We picked up coffee at our local Starbuck’s, they make it so easy. We made scrambled eggs with onion, spinach and cheese with a few slices of lemon-pepper chicken and avocado. Also, we had assorted pastries I picked up the day before from 85C.

I started the day by stopping at Starbucks for a coffee (this is a recycled photo). I was taking a short road trip that morning.

WIAW #26 & Counting

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


 

Hello, WIAWers. Happy What I Ate Wednesday!  I am sharing my meals from Saturday and we finally got a break from the heat, so food sounds good again. Thank you to Jenn a Peas and Crayons for hosting the WIAW!

This months theme is “Spooky Snacks and Healthy Halloween Treats”. This day I attended a haunted house and now I am in the mood for Halloween. :-)

This is what I ate:

Breakfast (6:30am)

I started the day with iced coffee from Starbucks and protein bar before my tennis class.

Brunch (11:00pm)

Since returning to tennis a few weeks ago, my husband and I have made stopping by the Gypsy Den a habit. And we have been ordering the same dishes, the bread plate and the spinach and feta scramble to share.

Dinner (6:30pm)

Once a year we go up to Pasadena for hamburgers and a haunted house. Sometimes we go with a group of friends and other times we go alone. This year, we went alone. We at dinner at Pie ‘N Burger, a place I have been going to since I was a child and it has not changed a bit. I had a hamburger with grilled onion and we shared my husbands favorite macaroni salad and a chocolate malt. They have really good pies but we were to full this trip. But the highlight of the night was our annual trip to the Pasadena Old Town Haunt. We had so much fun, it was scary but not too much. 🙂

Thank you for stopping by. I hope your day was full of healthy meals!

My 14th WIAW

Posted by Jennifer (the student) on July 17, 2012

Hi, everyone. Happy “What I Ate Wednesday.” These are my eats from last Monday. I was able to have one of my favorite lunches while I was out running a few errands. Hope you enjoy my day. Thank you to Jenn at Peas and Crayons for hosting the WIAW.

This is what I ate:

Breakfast (6:15am)

Started off with Instant Coffee from Trader Joe’s. I usually brew a pot of coffee every morning but this morning my husband was rushed. So I just boiled some water and it was fairly good. It was a treat because I did not have all the clean up from the coffee pot. To eat I had 2 slices of whole wheat bread with 2 poached eggs, topped with a little shredded cheese (Trader Joe’s Mexican Blend). Followed by my usually mix of vitamins.

AM Snack (9:00am)

An apple (maybe a Fiji?!?) and raw, unsalted cashews.

Lunch (11:45am)

Before I stopped at the market, I had lunch at the Veggie Grill. I cannot get enough of their Buffalo Wings (made with veggie chicken) and the Thai Chickin’ Salad. As you can see, we could not wait until I took a photo before we started on the wings. After marketing, I ran in Starbucks to get a Cool Lime Refresher. This is my new favorite treat, really refreshing during the summer.

PM Snack (2:30pm)

Half of a Gaya Melon (I think that is what it is called) from the Korean market. I really like these melons because they are small and sort of taste like honeydew meets a cantaloupe.

Dinner (5:300pm)

Last week, I reworked a recipe and came up with a new recipe “Chickpea and Seitan White Enchiladas” and I divided the recipe in half, so I could freeze half for later.  Monday night, we finished off the second half. They were just as good as the first time we had them.

Dessert (7:00pm)

And to complete the day Chocolate Angel Food Cake, to satisfy my sweet tooth.

July’s WIAW theme is “Food, Fun & Fitness” and here is a link to my exercise log for the week. Thank you for stopping by. I hope your day was full of healthy meals.
