What I ate Wednesday #4

Is it just me or is everyone suffering from extreme hypothermia? Maybe it's not quite that cold, but jeezlaweez these 34 degree mornings are pretty crazy! I've noticed my food cravings are also changing with the weather- I'm definitely wanting more soups and belly warming meals, hence my purchasing of the crock pot. I have my spaghetti sauce cooking as I speak write and it makes me so happy that it will be ready to eat in my hour between work and class. Life is great. 

On to my favorite day of the week... What I ate Wednesday! 

The overnight oats are back. Yum. These are of the pumpkin variety. If you haven't tried this yet, I highly suggest you do.

Pumpkin banana protein shake post workout. I ate pumpkin twice in 3 hours. Don't judge. 

Chocolate protein bars and chai tea (that I clearly almost finished before taking the picture) was meal 3. I added rum extract to these and it was one of many great ideas I've had lately.

Turkey stuffed zucchini with red pepper flakes and yam chips for lunch.

Cottage cheese and almonds for mid afternoon snack. Are you surprised? 

Chicken cabbage soup for dinner. Yes. It is as amazing as it looks and the recipe will be here tomorrow! 

I had casein pudding before bed, but devoured it before I took a picture. Fail. 

See you all tomorrow for the soup recipe... I know you're dying for it. I would be :)


  1. YUM!!!! Ok, fill me in, whats in your smoothie??? I love new smoothie recipes!

    These protein bars have me swooning over there a recipe??


  2. I linked them both out for you :)

  3. Did you put something in the cottage cheese?

  4. Hi Amy! I put 1/2 scoop of vanilla protein powder, cinnamon, and a little sweetener- I like Truvia.

  5. I love the way your write, it makes so laugh. So cute. And yep, looking forward to the soup recipe. We are havig the coldest start to Summer here in Australia (boo hoo) so I might just be able to put it to use too.

  6. Whoops, a few typos in my comment above. You get the gist i'm sure.

  7. The stuffed zucchini sounds delicious!

  8. Haha thanks Emily, that made me smile!

  9. Brittany, I am really interested and determined to change my eating habits into an overall healthier life style that will help me lose about 20-25 lbs. The number itself is not so much important to me, but the way I look is, and I know I like how my body looks when I weigh 20-25 lbs less. Anyway, I was wondering if you could point me in the right direction for getting started? Any websites or books you could recommend? If you have time you can email me or I can check back for your comments :) Thanks.

  10. That chicken cabbage soup looks awesome! :D

  11. Hi, I LOVE your site and admire the way you eat. I'm trying to figure out how to get to 2000 calories following a similar kind of pattern of "clean" eating...any thoughts??? I can't seem to get to 2000+ (keep going under). If you can show a sample of 2-3 menu plans, please email me . Would appreciate it so much:
