WIAW: Office Edition

Hello friends. Thankfully it is Wednesday, which means there are only two more days this week.  My birthday is this Sunday, so I am seeing family on Saturday and have virtually nothing planned on Sunday because I like calm. Realistically, I’ll probably get antsy and need to go do something, but I like that the option is there for nothing.

Let me jump into this week’s What I Ate Wednesday. I didn’t have many exciting meals this weekend, so I figured I would go back to my typical work week eats since it has been awhile. Check out Jenn’s blog for her WIAW linkup and explanation.  Thanks Jenn!


I had my normal breakfast yesterday of chocolate blueberry basil smoothie (I’m still not sick of it) and scrambled eggs and mushrooms.



Snack #1

I had my daily double espresso, a banana, and a pumpkin pie Lara ALT bar.




I picked this up at Costco the other day because I thought it would make for a quick lunch. Granted, I can make this at home since the ingredients are all so simple, but I was feeling lazy.  I put it on a bed of mixed greens but forgot to take a picture of the final product.  If/when I make it myself, I am going to cut WAY back on the oil.  It is delicious, but too oily for me.



Snack #2

I have inhaled all my homemade almond butter, so I ate this apple plain.  That’s still ok with me because it is a jazz apple and the best apple ever made in life.



Neil and I made dinner: salmon, asparagus, and quinoa.  Stay tuned on Friday for the recipe.  I am working with Sunkist on replacing salt with lemon juice.  This was all pretty bangin.


So those are my eats from yesterday. My eating routine at work is basically the same every day which is why I don’t always like to feature it for WIAW.  I’ve had enough fancy weekend meals lately, though, so it’s always good to come back to basics.  Happy eating!

Question of the day: What have you been eating lately?

    I’ve never even heard of Balela but now I want some! Those are like all of my favorite things in one dish!

      It’s really delicious! If you have a Costco membership, it’s with all the hummus and guacamole.

    That Balela looks really good. One of the food-styles I miss most since going paleo-ish would be Mediterranean. I really miss a good hummus and falafal gyro.

    Yummm, that balela looks amazing!!! I need to get some of that ASAP! Also, where in the world do you find those Pumpkin pie ALT Larabars? Because I need them in my life.

      Those ones I found at Giant. Also that balela stuff is great but honestly you’re better off making it at home bc now I’m at the bottom and it’s super oily. Still good though!
