Yesterday was one of those days where everything just sort of hit the spot. Don’t you kinda love it when that happens? :) Here’s what was being eaten yesterday!
Since my first shift of work (I work a split shift) is from 6:15-8:30am, I usually need something to tide me over until I can eat a real breakfast when I get home. On Tuesdays I usually take kickboxing at 9am at the gym after work, so I had peanut butter chocolate chip clif bar for a “pre-breakfast” to give me some energy. I also had some homemade iced coffee along the side :)
I didn’t get home from the gym until about 10:15am and was more than ready for a heartier meal. I decided to go with my favorite choice of summer, greek yogurt with pb2, granola, and a baked Quest bar. I hadn’t had it in quite some time and it was delicious.
Since I ate breakfast so late, I wasn’t that hungry when lunch time rolled around. I held off eating until the latest possible since I had to be back to work, and decide to go with a salad with 1/2 a roasted sweet potato, cucumber, turkey, dried cranberries, pistachios, egg whites, goat cheese and honey lemon dressing. I also had a rice cake topped with pb&j on the side to round out my meal.
By the time I got home from work I was more than ready for dinner. I decided to go with something easy and chose to eat my favorite frozen pizza. I also had some carrots & hummus on the side.
I finally tried the coconut Arctic Zero, and it is SO GOOD. It tastes so close to coconut milk ice cream I cannot believe it. I topped it with a homemade almond butter cup, granola, and pb2. So good!
Wasn’t I just typing up last week’s What I Ate Wednuesday post? Seriously where has this summer gone? This is already my last full week of camp. Pure craziness I tell you. Onto the food!

This breakfast doesn’t really get old. It’s so good. You’re probably sick of seeing it. Sorrynotsorry ;) Coffee on the side too.
grilled tilapia with a baked sweet potato + an [unpictured] apple
That picture is actually my dinner from last night, but I packed the same thing for lunch yesterday :) Such a good meal!
I may have eaten a few of those seen above (but chocolate cake with chocolate frosting :) ) that we decorated during camp. I remember making those when I was younger for birthdays. Such a fun treat.
After the gym I was a little hungry and not quite ready for dinner so I had a KIND bar. It was all melty from being in my backpack all day and it made it taste even better.
zucchini bread + scrambled eggs with roasted vegetables
I was looking through my old blog posts (does anyone else ever do that on their blog??) and came across a meal I used to eat a lot last year. I made a batch of zucchini bread on Sunday and have been enjoying it daily since. One of my favorites!
oatmeal squares, blueberries, AB cup, and almond milk
Picture is from a few weeks ago (also I wasn’t watching OTH this time, hehe), but it was basically the same, except this time it was a homemade almond butter cup. Which in my opinion, taste even better than the real thing ;)
Have a lovely Wednesday<3
Monday I actually remembered to take pictures of all of my food, so today I’m sharing everything below in What I Ate Wednesday! Check out Jenn’s blog to join in on the fun :)
I didn’t go to school on Monday, so I was finally able to go to my favorite yoga class that’s only offered during the day. Beforehand, I had a bowl of Van’s cinnamon heaven cereal with fresh organic berries, walnuts, and almond milk. I love this combination in the spring/summer. So light and refreshing. Coffee was also on the side as usual.
Ever since Gina posted the recipe for her avocado chicken salad I’ve made it about three times. I had that for lunch yesterday with a side of carrots and hummus. Totally satisfying.
In the afternoon I did some homework, caught up on blogs, and worked at the daycare. Afterwards I got a little snacky so I had a baked chocolate chip cookie dough Quest bar. I’m pretty positive I could eat one of those every single day. If you haven’t tried one yet, I promise they taste better than how they look. Photos do no justice ;)
It was pretty rainy all morning on Monday, but the sun finally made an appearance in the afternoon. Since they’re calling for clouds and rain the rest of the week, I knew I should take advantage of the nice weather and decided to go for a walk outside. I walked a little around my neighborhood, then decided to walk around the neighborhood behind me (which is actually my sister’s). She was pulling in her driveway as I was walking over, so she joined me for a 2-or-so mile walk.
Emily asked me what I was doing for dinner and I told her I had plans to go pick up Chipotle. She and our other sister decided to join me so we all took a trip to the next town over to pick it up. I tried their new sofrita “meat” (aka tofu) in a burrito bowl and it was really good! It’s ground up so it doesn’t even resemble tofu and actually has a lot of flavor. I’ll definitely be getting it again. Also, please tell me you’ve seen *this vine* (hence the title of this post). Could not be more true.
I was really full after dinner (it’s practically impossible to stop eating Chipotle even after you’re full am I right…?), but I always like to end my day on a sweet note. I had a date stuffed with peanut butter and it did the trick :)
Overall a pretty good day of eats! Have a lovely Wednesday<3
