What I ate Wednesday (or, while on Grand Jury Duty on Monday)...

I am going to try to do this alongside Peas and Crayons and hopefully get some other readers/tips from those who participate.  Play along! It will be fun!!

No sugar needed! Yes, there are oats in there!!
1/2 C oats
1/2 C skim milk
cinnamon--plentiful amount!
1 full apple cut up
blueberries, strawberries, blackberries, and raspberries. (the last of my haul from the last Farmer's market that was in my freezer from last year)

This is my new favorite way to eat oatmeal.  It is funny that a year ago I wouldn't have been able to stomach the texture of this dish, but the hearty and satisfying mouthfeel has grown on me and I LOVE that I don't need sugar anymore either!


L's brother drew my name for Christmas last year, and he got me a bento box that I finally got to use on Monday for my lunch.  Let me tell you, filling it with good foods I made was super fun, and eating from it was even MORE fun!

Calzone (wrapped in saran wrap in the mesh area)
In the box clockwise starting with the dish in the back left:
Spiced Citrus Salad
Homemade Crackers
baby carrots and almonds
Stuffed Corn Muffin
Glazed Pear Muffin (dessert)
On the side of the box:
Homemade granola bar
Ranch dressing (OMG YUM)

I'm not going to lie, I am pretty proud of myself and the fact that of the food in my bento box, I made 7/10 items that I packed.  I couldn't say this a year ago.  My lunch would have consisted of processed, fatty foods.

(If you like fun meals check out all these awesome bentos!!)

Snack on the way to practice:
1 cut up apple
3 small slices of cheddar cheese
10 almonds

I didn't get home from practice until 9:20, which kills me to eat that late, so I really try hard not to.
I had 1/2 a Chobani strawberry yogurt and went to bed.

Your turn!  What did YOU eat?!?!?!?!


  1. What an awesome day of eats! <3 OMG that bento box is stuffed with amazingness! I think I need to invest in those pretty darn soon -- so many fun colors and containers! =)

    Thanks so much for linking up! I'll have you thumbnail up on the blog as soon as my photoshop decides to behave! <3

    Hope you're having a fabulous week!!!

  2. OMG everything looks SO good. I had some shredded wheat n blueberries, fish with cabbage salad and the WW Savory burger recipe with steamed veggies. For snacks 1 whole egg, 1 egg white, cut up veggies and 1 cup plain greek yogurt with fresh fruit salad and some dark chocolate. Doesn't sound quite as good as yours looks.

  3. Are these the berries we got at the Farmer's Market in August? It gives me so much satisfaction to think that those berries lasted so long, used in many meals and nourishing you throughout the winter!! (even though you don't have much of a winter)

  4. Heck yes they are Julia!!
    They probably wouldn't have lasted as long, but I left for WI only a week after we got all the berries, so they were waiting for me in the freezer when I got back home!!!
    :) And they were AWESOME!!!!


I love when people comment!!! Good, bad, or even ugly--feel free to leave a comment and I will do my best to respond!
