Happy Wednesday – are you ready for another What I Ate Wednesday? These were my eats from last Thursday – I tried to switch things up a little bit. Well, for at least one meal – breakfast!
Thursdays are my new cross training days. I’m training for a half marathon in August and I’m trying to stick to the schedule so the day started with 1 mile jog (gotta keep my Runners World streak up!) and an easy elliptical workout.
B typically makes me breakfast, but I was on my own Thursday morning as he was sleeping in. So, I brought in protein powder and fully expected to just have a protein shake at work and maybe some fruit. BUT my coworker Cari let me borrow some almond milk and I used our office Vitamix to make myself a smoothie bowl! It doesn’t look that pretty but it tasted great- it was 2 scoops Biotrust vanilla protein, about 1 cup almond milk, 1 TB PB 2 and some ice.
Not quite the same as my typical egg whites and veggies but still pretty good!
I was pretty full until lunch, when I had a salad. It was combined leftovers from a few nights – half a turkey burger from Tuesday dinner, half an ahi tuna steak from Wednesday dinner and some lettuce, bean sprouts and hummus (hidden). I also had an apple. Delish!
Snacks included a nectarine with nuts, carrots and some more nuts.
For dinner, B was craving some roasted chicken so I picked up a rotisserie from Heinen’s and paired it with some veggies we had in the fridge – I roasted some cauliflower and sautéed some zucchini with peppers and onions (and basil). Again, pretty good! I also had part of a sweet potato with cinnamon for “dessert.”
Well, wraps up this week’s exciting round of WIAW! Click on the badge below to see what WIAW is all about.
Some questions for you:
- Do you like your sweet potatoes sweet or savory?
- Have you ever had a smoothie bowl?

I like all potatoes! And I have not had a smoothie bowl- I keep wanting to try acai packets but I haven’t picked them up yet. Soon!
I need to get those too – instead of paying for my fix i should try making one!
love all these foods!!
Smoothie bowls are the best! I love topping them with either nut butter or some sort of granola/cereal.
I’ve essentially had a smoothie bowl, I just never pour it into a bowl… why have to clean another dish? haha. I usually have my sweet potatoes sweet with cinnamon, but occasionally I’ll use thyme or rosemary if they are baked. At night I like mine like a dessert, too 🙂
I can only eat sweet potatoes, white ones aren’t appetizing to me at all, even in fry form! I love smoothie bowls though but find they don’t fill me up enough haha
I put a lot of protein powder in my smoothie bowl and nut butter, so that helps! So delish.
I love sweet potatoes!! I’ve never tried one with cinnamon, I’ll give it a shot! I always top mine with almond butter 🙂

almond butter- that sounds delish!!! What a great idea!!
Oh I ate a whole rotisserie chicken last night…..no shame 😉
Thanks for linking up, Happy WIAW!
I have never had a sweet potato as a dessert. What do you top yours with? Great summery day of food! Rotisserie chicken is so easy and delicious isn’t it!
Sweet potatoes, ALWAYS sweet! Duh 😉 That’s why they’re called sweet potatoes! he he!
How is it ten in the morning and ALL of this looks delicious guess my protein balls aren’t holding me over today, love your eats!
That salad looks great! I like my baked potatoes loaded with bacon and cheese lol but I’ve been trying to be better. I’ve never had a smoothie bowl, only just heard of them recently. I love my smoothies, but I’m still unsure of the smoothie bowl. Maybe someday I’ll get around to trying one.
