what i ate wednesday #5

Welcome to the 5th edition of What I Ate Wednesday!  I had a super productive day today and it was also filled with a few surprises!


Steel-cut oats + chia topped with a little coconut butter, a little peanut butter, a ton of blueberries and some peanut butter granola (I’m addicted).  Also had a cup of green tea with soy milk (I made it one full week without coffee and only one caffeine headache!).

After breakfast I started two loads of laundry, cleaned the bathroom and cleaned a few windows before my friend Emilee came and picked me up to go workout by the bluff at my [former] college.  We did the stairs a couple times and walked around campus.  It’s kind of ridiculous how many renovations/additions are going on – making it nicer when we’re not there to enjoy it anymore…  I was definitely up for a snack when we returned.

Mid-Morning Snack

Fruit bowl – grapes + cantaloupe!

After my snack pick-me-up, I continued to clean – my room, the living room, dining room, and finished + folded the laundry.  Oh, and I also mowed the front lawn.


I got to lunch a little later than usual due to my high productivity!  Lunch was leftover quinoa salad with green beans, sun-dried tomatoes, kidney beans and oregano with a glass of almond milk and carrots :).

Also had some not-so-lemony gluten-free lemon chia bread.

Around this time I saw a posting on Facebook for a small part-time job a local bakery was hiring for.  I emailed in my resume and they emailed back shortly thereafter asking if I was available today for an interview!  Jeesh, so I finally jumped in the shower at this point and got ready.

Afternoon Snack

Ate some rice cakes w/ homemade Honey Almond Butter + TJ’s Organic Blueberry Preserves (the raisin-looking dollops) while getting ready to go.

I also had an apple on the way to the interview.  The job would be throughout the summer and would be a fun addition to my schedule – I’ll find out by tomorrow if I got it or not!


Kinley made dinner when I was at my interview.  Vegan Tamales (recipe here!) with broccoli and homemade guacamole with blue corn tortilla chips.  Yum!

After dinner, Kin and I took Crosby on a “Freedom Walk”.  AKA when he is really good and doesn’t need to use a leash.  He loves being able to wander around and not be weighed down by the heavy collar haha.

He just loves it, hope your night was as good as his was!
