WIAW #19: Zoodles and Birthdays

Guess what day it is … that’s right – it’s What I Ate Wednesday! These were my eats from Monday. It included a new zoodle recipe and a birthday dinner (one of a few) with my friend/running bff Nicole.

The day was also my first day of my training for the August half marathon I signed up for. I know – a half marathon, in August, sounds hot, humid and notsomuch fun. Oh well. I’m doing it! Anyway, day one was 3.5 miles so I tried to run them pretty fast (for me) and then finished with kettle bells and the elliptical. My post-run breakfast was made for me by B! Egg whites with italian hot peppers, mixed veggies and spinach.

For lunch, I had made myself a salad. I made salads Sunday during some meal prep and also some quinoa salad so I mixed it all together. Topped with a Heinen’s flamegrilled veggie burger. YUM. No dressing this time.

Snacks the day included a nectarine, strawberries, mixed nuts and carrots.

For dinner, Nicole came over. It’s the start of her birthday week and she confessed to me that she has NEVER HAD ZOODLES. I know, right?! So in honor of her bday week we had plans to make pad thai zoodles for dinner. I snacked on some of those peanuts in the background before/after cooking too.

For dessert, I finished a glass of red wine (yes, it’s leaning on B in this picture) and may have also had a peanut butter oatmeal M&M cookie.  These cookies were REALLY good and I’ll definitely be making them again and sharing the recipe soon!

That was it! That was my day. How did I do? Two questions for you:

  • Do you like oatmeal cookies? What do you put in them?
  • What’s your go-to Thai or Vietnamese order? Pad see mao or pad see ew for Thai, Pho or Bun or cabbage salads for Vietnamese!

  1. oatmeal cookies are my fave cookies, actually. i love peanut butter oatmeal, or just plain oatmeal (cinnamon) raisin. dark chocolate is nice sometimes too. i haven’t heard of that brand of veggie burger but i’m big on putting those into salads, too.

  2. That wine glass balancing act is quite impressive! I also really like the idea of pad thai with zoodles.

  3. Yes Yes Yes I love oatmeal cookies! I cannot wait to hear all about this recipe. They sound pretty good.. but then again can anything involving m&ms be bad? 🙂
