It is time again for “What I Ate Wednesday.” I share my post over on Peas & Crayons so head there for fun food inspirations and recipes ideas from bloggers just like me!

In terms of eats, here’s what Tuesday included:

Breakfast- 7am

I’m so lucky that I have a fiancé that will make me breakfast while I get ready for work in the morning. I came downstairs to find this:

greek yogurt and almond butter banana toast

0% plain Greek yogurt with blueberries, TJ’s honey almond slivers and chia seeds. TJ’s wheat berry toast (my new fave) with almond butter and banana.

AM Snack- 10am

My go-to is most often fruit + almonds. Z & I bought a bag of pears at Costco last week and these things are MASSIVE (placing it on a salad plate I was hoping to add perspective). Knowing that a little protein goes a long way I snacked on the TJ’s sesame-honey almonds and raw cashew pieces from my snack mix (saving the dried prunes for another time).

Lunch- 1pm

I knew while packing it that this would be a good lunch. It had everything: protein, whole grain, healthy fat, fruit, veggies, and a treat! In fact it was so filling that I didn’t even get around to eating the animal crackers….and that’s saying something coming from me. packed lunch idea turkey sandwich with avocado tomato and cheddar carrot strawberries animal crackers

1/2 turkey sandwich on TJ’s wheatberry bread, tomato, avocado, cheddar and balsamic vinaigrette.  Side of carrots and fresh strawberries. Animal crackers (of course).

PM Snack- 4pm

My yummy lunch kept me contently full most of the afternoon. Around 4 I just needed a little something so snacked on two clementines (another Costco purchase) that were delightfully sweet.


Dinner- 5:45pm

TACO Tuesday! On the menu: chicken tacos with homemade seasoning (inspired by Budget Bytes).

Seasoned chicken with plain Greek yogurt, cheddar cheese, tomato and mashed avocado on TJ’s low-carb whole wheat tortilla. 1/2 naval orange on the side.

Dessert- 6:30pm

The best way to end the day. The warm ooey-gooey-ness of a s’more is just so appealing when it’s 35 degrees out.

TJ’s old fashioned cinnamon graham cracker, marshmallow, topped with a piece of 85% dark chocolate.*

(*Set toaster oven to 325 and watch until the top of the marshmallow starts to brown. Keep an eye on it though because it goes from brown—>burnt very quickly.)

Now, I want to know…

When is the last time you made s’mores over a campfire?

I’ve become quite an expert at the microwave/toaster oven variety but can’t really remember last time I made them over a fire. October 2010 maybe? (aka long time ago).
