What I ate Wednesday and a Vote!

So I realized today that this months theme for what I ate Wednesday is Spooky Snacks and Healthy Treats so I think it's only right to come up with a new recipe for next week! Leave me a comment and let me know which you'd prefer and I promise a recipe on next weeks WIAW! 

The day started as it usually does- apple cinnamon protein muffins topped with greek yogurt and cinnamon and a couple slices of a Honeycrisp apple. 

<Insert protein shake here>

Mid morning I had some DELICIOUS pumpkin overnight oats. So happy it's pumpkin season again. So happy. 

I decided my turkey burger phase was getting a little out of control, so this week I decided to brown my turkey with mushroom and onion. I had this with a yam and some baked zucchini. Such a nice change! (There was obviously ketchup added to this after the picture!)

Since I decided to overcook Monday nights salmon, I opted for a tuna salad for mid afternoon snack. I mixed my tuna with greek yogurt and mustard and threw in some tomatoes too. I topped this off with a little Cholula and it was awesome. Such an easy go-to meal!

As I've mentioned before, there are times I just don't feel like eating meat. I had shredded beef all ready to go in the crock pot when I got home last night, but I just wasn't feeling it. So, when all else fails... breakfast for dinner! I've been pretty obsessed lately with runny egg yolks, so I sauteed some asparagus, mushroom, and onion and made a folded over "fried" egg and stuffed it with my veggies. It definitely hit the spot. 

Capped off the night with our new favorite "soft serve" casein dessert. 

I'm enjoying my rest day today after doing an INSANE James Wilson workout yesterday, but definitely looking forward to taking Charley for a walk tonight! Happy Wednesday!

Don't forget to vote on which you'd like: snack or treat! 


  1. Snack please! and how did you make "soft serve" Casien dessert??

  2. Hi Girl!! Hmm after much contemplating (I take food much too serious LOL) I think I will vote for snack!

    Also I have been looking for the perfect pumpkin oatmeal recipe to try because I LOVE pumpkin but have never used it in oatmeal. I think my macros are pretty much the same as yours for JW program so I was wondering what exactly you put in your pumpkin oatmeal too meet the your macros?

    What week are you on? I think With my brothers wedding I got about a week maybe 2 behind you.

    Way to keep pushing BTW. I know you haven't been feeling your best and these workouts definitely take all you got. Keep rockin it B. One day at a time JUST DO IT :0).

    PS I miss seeing Charley!! I am a DOG lover!

  3. hi little b...just curious how you make your asparagus. not sure i'll be able to persuade my kids...but gonna try! :)

    1. I managed to persuade my 5 1/2 yr old daughter. She takes dance and gymnastics so we simply told her that it helped her build her muscles to do really awesome tricks in class and she bought it. We let her know she needed to eat one stalk for each arm and each leg so that she wouldnt be unbalanced. It was also my first time eating them at the age of 27.

  4. I think a snack would be awesome.
