Guess what – for this week’s What I Ate Wednesday, I’m actually going to share with you a Wednesday of eats. I tend to share Monday or Tuesday (because those are the days I remember to take photos of everything), but this week I’m showing you an actual Wednesday!
For those of you that have followed my WIAW posts before, you know that breakfast for me are typically the same. My hubby B makes me egg whites with an assortment of vegetables and/or beans. This week was no different – I put some cholula on my veggies and wolfed this down around 8 a.m. at my desk. No coffee today – I don’t drink it daily and instead focused on hydrating with my crystal light. Yes, I have a slight addiction.
Work was busy, so lunchtime came and went. Whoops! Thankfully, I was able to heat up my lunch I had prepared the night before – an assortment of roasted cauliflower, sweet potato and onion with smoked paprika and hot sauce (I like spicy food) and tofu. I give up meat for Lent and sometimes I take the easy way out to get in some protein.
For snacks, I had a whole cut up yellow pepper, some peanuts, carrots and of course, tea with honey. I love decaf herbal tea and this lemon ginger tea is so yummy.
B went for a run outside after work, and since I had already worked out, I made dinner while he ran. I was craving some brinner and was happy to see we had the ingredients on hand. Thankfully, I was able to throw something delicious together quickly – we had everything for my sweet potato zucchini hash, and I added a runny egg and avocado. I love this meal so much!
And for dessert? Some homemade browned butter chocolate chunk cookies I had made and of course more tea and honey.
Some questions for you:
How do you like your eggs? I like the whites the most, but do love the yolk when it’s runny. Yummy!
What are some non-meat ways you get in protein? Eggs, tofu, beans, etc.

oooh I love eggs, too. I can#t tolerate the yolk when it’s firm but luckily runny yolk is alright for my belly. So delicious! And definitely my fav protein source next to meat. I do love beans though. And oats. Your cookies look delicious! And I am impressed you get so much veggies into you!
My favorite part of eggs is that delicious runny yolk. It can’t be beat.
Ooh I agree! love the runny yolk. and the white. Cooked yolk – gross.
Breakfast for dinner is my favorite! I get a lot of my protein from dark greens and whole grains:)
good looking food! i really like roasted veggies and anything in a scramble with egg. i prefer my eggs scrambled, but occasionally eat them other ways. i don’t like them runny (my dad does) but i will eat an egg as long as it’s cooked through!
Yummy day of eats! I love brinner. When Todd was gone, I had eggs almost every night… 2 eggs over easy with nice runny yolks! You reminded me about smoked paprika- love that stuff!
