WIAW: Succotash & Okra

Half way through the week my friends, half way through. Let’s celebrate with some food pics and ideas from around the web on Peas&Crayons!

6:45AM= Couple bites of cottage cheese right outta the container.

7:30AM= Fage 2% plain Greek Yogurt. I find if you let it come to room temp, it has more of a cheesy “flavor,” if that makes sense.


8:45AM= Zoatmeal– 1/2 cup old fashioned oatmeal, 1/4c each water and almond milk, 1/3 c grated zucchini, splash of cherry juice, cinnamon and grated nutmeg. Stir and microwave on 50% power for 5 minutes.


10:30AM= Banana with scoop of “desk almond butter.”

12:30PM= Was able to come home for lunch- Riley was a happy camper- and had a dippy egg with egg whites on the side, roasted butternut squash and some green bean fries.

Belly rubs for days!

3:15PM= Someone left a bunch of these Target Simply Balanced Fruit Bars in the break room so I snagged one for a snack.

4PM= More snacking. Half an avocado with salt sprinkled on top… can you believe they don’t have salt packets in our cafeteria? I guess it’s a good thing actually, haha, considering most people use too much salt.

After work I picked up Ry and headed to my parents for dinner. From Riley- “To Grandmother’s house we go!”

6:30PM= I still love going to my parents for dinner, even on week nights 🙂 We had roasted chicken, okra and succotash- all of which I love. A nice southern meal. My mom is a great cook!

9PM= I finished up the night with an almond, cashew, sunflower seed, peanut nut butter shot. Nom Nom.

  1. Oooh succotash and okra? These are foreign foods to me! But they look so colorful!!

    AND in my opinion – NO! Keep the WIAW coming. I love looking at threats, reminding myself i need to try zoats and seeing those delicious nut butter shots!

  2. I recently bought almond butter for the first time. It is delicious, isn’t it?
    I don’t mind you eating the same things. I am not the most creative person in terms of food. And the same way I am here for the first time, other readers are will discover your meals only in future posts. 😉

    • Very true! To new reads, it’s all new! And I love love love almond butter. Hopefully you continue to read HRF and you’ll see my obsession, haha
