WIAW Summer Staples #3

Hey there! I took a handful of days off but I am back and ready to share random details of my life.

Wednesdays are What I Ate Wednesday around here, but I did a craptastic job taking photos yesterday. If you want better photos of food and real recipes, please head over to Jenn’s link-up and check out some new blogs.

Breakfast @ 7:00

This has become a summer staple for me: peanut butter toast with chia seeds. I rarely have toast during the school year because overnight oats are just so much easier. For more staying power, I had a strawberry banana Chobani. Although you can’t see it, I also had an iced coffee with skim milk.

Snack @ 11:30am
I drove to school to meet with a couple of my colleagues for a little curriculum work. It went awesome and I was so happy with what we developed! Time flew by and it wasn’t until 11:30 that I noticed my stomach growling. I ate cut up cantaloupe.

Lunch @ 12:45pm
Driving back home and to a doctor’s appointment, I ate lunch in the car: pork and chicken sausage and roasted green beans.

The sausage was an item Brody actually chose while shopping at Woodman’s on Saturday. The stats are better than normal sausage with 200 calories, 15 grams of fat, and 16 grams of protein per link. They have great flavor and would be delicious in a pasta dish.

Snack @ 2:30pm
Lunch didn’t keep me satisfied, so I had half a Flatout light wrap with TJ’s peanut butter.

Snack (drink) @ 4:00pm
Yah for kombucha! I love this stuff, but sadly this was the last one in my fridge. The trilogy flavor is one of my favorites. This quenched my thirst after an afternoon trip to the dog park. Now that Woodman’s is so close and the prices are the cheapest, I see kombucha being more of a year-round staple.

Snack @ 6:00pm
Yup, three small snacks in one afternoon. A friend and I ran three miles, and I knew we wouldn’t be eating dinner right away. That other half of the Flatout wrap? Ate that with more peanut butter.

Dinner @ 7:30pm
My pizza had spinach, green onions, tomatoes, red pepper, goat cheese, a little mozzarella, Garlic Gold Italian Herb seasoning, and DiSalvo’s pizza sauce (seriously the best sauce ever). My crust was naan. I ate it all.

For dessert, I polished off the last half cup of triple espresso gelato I picked out at Woodman’s. This flavor was so amazing – very intense coffee flavor and super creamy.

Have a fantastic Wednesday!
