WIAW: Case of the Mondays = Cookie for Breakfast

I decided to switch it up a little bit this week – I’m sharing with you Monday’s eats for this edition of What I Ate Wednesday. I typically share a Tuesday eats but guess what – I remembered to take food pics on Monday!

Full disclosure: Today (Wednesday) I’m going out to eat for dinner and likely having chips and guac, tacos, margs and dessert. Sorry you’re stuck with viewing pictures of zoodles (and some treats) instead of Mexican 🙂

Monday morning I started my day with a cookie. That’s right – a cookie. I ran before work and was hungry before I even had a chance to make breakfast (B had to pick up his dry-cleaning so I made my OWN breakfast!) so I had a butterscotch oatmeal coconut cookie bar. Delicious! And there’s oatmeal in them so it’s totally a great pre-breakfast treat.

When I got to work, I had my egg whites and veggies – this time a mix of spaghetti squash and frozen vegetables. Oh, and coffee with cinnamon. I don’t drink coffee daily, but when a colleague puts in Vietnamese cinnamon AND it’s Monday, it’s hard to resist.

Lunch was a mix of leftovers from our dinner out with my parents on Friday (salmon and lentils – both my mom’s and my leftovers) and some roasted broccoli and tomatoes I had prepared on Sunday.

Salmon, lentils, roasted broccoli and tomatoes. Yes, my lunches often look like a dinner.

Some Arctic Zero! Yes it’s cold, but I still have a sweet tooth (as evidenced by the cookie for breakfast)

I didn't quite eat the whole pint ..

And for dinner – I made some shrimp scampi-type dish with zoodles! I don’t know what is officially in shrimp scampi, but this was sautĂ©ed onions, garlic and shrimp over zoodles with some peperoncino flakes and fresh basil.

Some questions for you:

  • Does anyone have a spiralizer? What do you recommend making?
  • Cookies for breakfast – anyone else guilty?
  • Arctic Zero fans – what’s your favorite flavor?

*Note: The original WIAW linkup seems to be on hiatus sadly – but I’ll be sharing this here too!

  1. Ah everything looks so delicious, especially that shrimp scampi!!
    So I made my first non-zucchini “noodles” with my spiralizer last night. I used sweet potatoes and baked them with some olive oil spray and sea salt to make fries. They were pretty much everything. I couldn’t believe how delicious and easy they were to do.

  2. Yum! Cookies for breakfast 🙂 The days I run before work I am a bottomless pit all day, too. It kind of sucks, but I always have my best runs on an empty stomach before work. What did you think of the Arctic Zero strawberry flavor?? I haven’t tried it yet.
