Happy What I Ate Wednesday! Here is a typical day … why is it typical? Because I had zoodles for lunch and cookies for a midnight snack. It’s all about a balance right?
The morning I started my day with my usual. I’m so predictable. Egg whites and veggies all the way! If you like something, why mess with it, right? OH and we had a new bag of pistachios at the office so I had a few of those with my eggs.
Lunch was leftovers! I had made some zoodles in an avocado pesto sauce for dinner the night before, so I enjoyed that with plenty of snap peas. AND kombucha! My first time trying this flavor. It was okay, made the kombucha even earthier than usual.
Snacks during the day included:
Carrots and unsalted mixed nuts
Some homemade granola (I get on granola-making binges sometimes and can’t stop. Which is good because I love eating it and sharing it!
I had to work somewhat late so B made dinner! And what a dinner it was. Steak (cooked just the way I like it – medium rare), avocado, asparagus and broccoli. I am back to eating meat and this was the first steak I’d had in at least 3 months.
After dinner, I got down to baking business. Which is what I like to do — except for some reason these cookies took me 2 hours to make. Whoops! It meant a late night – and late night of cookie tasting as well. I finished off my evening with a few of these peanut butter oatmeal cookie bars:
So so good!
Today’s linkup is with another Cleveland-dweller, Clean Eats, Fast Feets!
Some questions for you:
- Do you eat the same thing for breakfast every day? What is it?
- Do you like kombucha? Any flavor or brand recommendations?
- How do you like your steak? Medium? Rare? Overcooked? Not at all?

Loving all the green foods on your dinner plate! 🙂 Looks like a good feast!
Great eats! I really need to get myself a Zoodle maker!
Yes! You must – i love mine, it’s so easy to use and clean!
That steak dinner looks incredible! Also, do you have a recipe for your granola? I’ve never made it before, and it occurred to me the other day what a travesty that is.
Girl, you know I eat the same thing every weekday, haha. I like the Gingerade and Green Monster Kombuchas. That dinner looks SO good! Perfect dinner in my book. And those bars… Nom freakin Nom.
I’m trying the Gingerade right now! It’s so good!
Those peanut butter oatmeal cookie bars look amazing! Where is the recipe from?
Thanks! I’m still working on the recipe – I used something similar to this Monster Cookie recipe (https://icrashedtheweb.com/2013/04/17/monster-cookies-for-blue-green-day/) but made them into bars which didn’t 100% work. They tasted good but were pretty dense and I should have used a bigger pan – they took more than an hour to cook!
Awesome! Thanks! Can’t wait for your recipe 🙂
If you like peanut butter (and chocolate) today’s recipe is also kind of amazing!
My fav combo ever! I will check it out!!
I need to get more veggies in my life right now. I should look into a Zoodle maker because I am so intrigue by those noodles.
I LOVE my zoodler. If you follow me on Instagram (@koskim), you’ll see I’ve been eating a LOT of them lately!
Those cookie bars look so good. How did you mange to find just the blue and green M&Ms?! Those are my two favorites!
Haha I went through a package and separated them. I brought them in to share with coworkers on Donate Life Blue and Green Day so that seemed appropriate!
I’m a big fan of the GTS but as far as flavors go if you like mango it’s a good one to start with because it’s less “earthy”
Zoooooodles for the win!
Ooh I’ll have to try mango!! I love anything mango!
Avocado pesto sauce is something I’ve been meaning to try for ages and wonder why I still haven’t. I should also finally purchase the spiralizer I meant to buy my mum for her birthday which was … a while ago. Haha, I’d say your post served as a good reminder.
Also, your homemade granola looks positively chunky – the best way!
Look at all those delicious greens in one day. I am impressed. Nicely done, and it’s fantastic to find another Cleveland blogger.
I have tried three flavors of kombucha: turmeric sunrise, ginger, and lavender melon. I liked lavender melon best. It might have been because the drink was served ice cold. I think I don’t care much for kombucha unless it is served very cold.
That sounds great – do you remember the brand?
