WIAW: Surprise Morning Snack

What I Ate Wednesday Button

See what other people are eating at the WIAW Party! Onto my eats…

Before work blueberries! I always seem to wake up a bit hungry. I need a little something to tide me over until I get into work and eat breakfast, and these little guys did the trick!

Morning Blueberries

Decaf Coffee baby! I’ve got to admit, the Starbucks Decaf Verona is pretty darn tasty.

Fage 2% and zoatmeal (1/2 cup oats, 1/3 cup grated zucchini, 1 cup almond milk= microwaved for 5 min on 50% power) for the break of the fast.

Mid-morning snack of hummingbird cake! It was a co-workers birthday and someone brought in a homemade hummingbird cake with banana, pineapple, pecans and cream cheese frosting. MMm Mmmm.Talk about a sugar rush! I didn’t even share this with Todd. Muah haha.

I had a lighter lunch because of the above indulgence. A one egg, 6 egg white frittata(?) with spinach and mushrooms. Oh and bite of left over chicken sausage.

Snacks included green bean fries  with ketchup and mustard combo for dipping.

And an hour or so later, cucumbers (with salt) and grape tomatoes. 

Veggie snackI was going to have an avocado with the cukes and tomatoes, but it was NASTY! I’ve never had one like this and I was so sad 🙁 I tried to eat the middle, which was OK, but just gave up so I wouldn’t get sick.

Nasty avocado

For dinner I went with the Cinco de Mayo theme and made quesadillas for Todd and a salsa chicken salad with sauteed green pepper and onions for me. Obviously I stole a few slices of quesadilla, which were pretty good if I don’t say so myself. I even used greek yogurt for the sour cream and Todd didn’t even notice!

Instead of my usual nut butter shot, I just had a handful of nuts, which went unpictured. Oh well. I was too busy chatting with Jessie to mind 🙂

Did you eat anything Cinco de Mayo themed yesterday?

  1. Yum! I wish I had taken photos of my Cinco de Mayo – we went to a Mexican restaurant/bar after work with coworkers and I definitely would’ve had some fun festive food for today’s WIAW (and drinks!).

    I LOVE hummingbird cake! I have had it only once and fell in love – I should find an excuse to bake and share (maybe) some!

  2. Ohhh Verona, SUCH a great choice. It’s actually my current go to for coffee right now. It’s such a sweet and smooth coffee. When someone comes in completely unsure I always suggest verona for its strong cocoa notes. It’s a crowd pleaser and a classic “dessert coffee.” And just like that I went off on a coffee tangent.

  3. Love hummingbird cake, but it’s so rich, I can’t handle eating much of it. We went out to our fave mexican restaurant, I have never seen so many people trying to eat there!
