It’s a bird! It’s a plane! It’s “omg looky look who managed to get her act together for What I Ate Wednesday?” Hi. I have written a few WIAW drafts and trashed them because they were pretty much the same thing as my previous WIAW’s and even my so-freaking-low-lil-jon-is-beaming-proud standards have a limit. So what this means is….. I can finally proudly present a WIAW with slightly different eats. It’s been awhile. Last time I did a WIAW, Jenn’s little miss Mia hadn’t made her earthly debut yet! Anyway. Let’s get to it.
Breaking el fast:
Let’s talk Buzzfeed for a second. Are you as enthralled as I am? I want them to get a reality TV show (we all know how much I love my reality tv) just so I can get a glimpse into the wonder but they’re probably too cool for it. Like, what are the interview questions to work there like? “What is your favorite gif?” or “Tell me – in memes from your childhood – 13 reasons you should work here”, “Describe a difficult situation working in a group via Friends episode titles.” ANYWAY… This egg n spinach sandwich is originally from here but I found it when Buzzfeed posted about it. I love to eat eggs but I am afraid of my stove [this is slightly an exaggeration] and severely lacking in any culinary skills. SO…imagine my unparalleled delight when I was hit by the truth bomb that you can microwave eggs/egg whites. I really didn’t know this. I knew it was meant for me when the author in the original recipe post was talking about making this in her office kitchen because guess where I make this everyday? Ding ding ding- we have a winner.
So easy a Caitlyn can do it.
The original also calls for avocado and tomato but I don’t like avocado [!!] and I can tolerate tomato if someone hands me a sandwich with tomato on it but won’t go willingly buying it sooo I make it without it. I also go without the salt and sometimes I even go crazy and dabble on a little hot sauce. I love to kick off my morning with this.
Quaker Oats Oatmeal Squares with banana and almond milk.
Pals, I reallllllly struggle with work lunches. I’ve never been a great luncher and always used to take crackers for lunch in school because I don’t like sandwiches or lunchmeat. In college, I’d eat chicken fingers and fries or a burger and fries (honestly both are two of my favorite meals). When I was on an ill-fated health kick….salads loaded down with ranch dressing and cheese were it and I was SO PROUD of myself for it. Then I joined the working world and vowed to learn how to lead a healthy life. So I was left scratching my head, trying to figure out a healthy option that I could manage to do. I used to bring the exact same salad for lunch every day, but after 7-8 months, I got really sick of it and have been floundering in the lunch department ever since.
I finally had a revelation that I’d just carry over the breakfast fun to lunch as well. I love to jump on a bandwagon after everyone else has already been riding it for for a good while, so I finally got around to trying overnight oats. I found this chunky monkey overnight oats recipe from Steph and deduced that it must be tried. I have pictures but I sent them to my sister to gloat all about my new recipe and she said it looks like vomit. I don’t want you to vom-atron and because this is so delicious I don’t want my horrendous photography and ugly bowl to turn you off it so I’m using Steph’s picture. Mine did kind of look like this but just not Pinterest-worthy.
The difference between my i-phone pictures in this post and the high quality of Steph’s is pretty humbling.
Apple slices and PB. Not much else to say but I love this and had forgotten how refreshing and good it is. Again sorry about my atrocious picture but I am not too creative and didn’t know how to arrange my subjects. I don’t want you to fret about this, so I will disclose that there was way more than one apple slice consumed.
Here I am trying to get my veggies in (I’m bad at it) with carrots, broccoli and rotini.
Luna bar. Not pictured some Wheat Thins.
Go check out Jenn and the rest of the WIAW gang. You are now dismissed from this atrocious and boring WIAW.
