Happy What I Ate Wednesday party people!
First, let me warn you that this day is just an ordinary day. A pretty boring, eat breakfast and lunch at my desk and dinner at home day. That being said, it was still pretty yummy, so here we go.
Side note – did anyone else have this song in their head now? #sorryimnotsorry
Anyway, I digress. For breakfast, B made me my usual. Egg whites with hot peppers plus veggies. Yum yum yum. Tired of seeing this same meal? Oh, those are farm fresh local tomatoes. So. Good.
For lunch, I basically had last night’s dinner leftovers on top of lettuce, plus goat cheese. So it became a salad! Salad with olives, salmon, tomato, roasted cauliflower, sweet potato, broccoli and green beans. Plus a few nuts. Colorful, huh?
For snacks, I had some delicious fruit. Grapes and this apple, which was also local. I can’t believe it’s practically apple picking season!
Oh, and of course a pickle! I made pickles this past weekend (they’re so easy!) and couldn’t resist having a few before dinner.
B made me dinner, too. Yup, breakfast and dinner today .. and we had a shrimp stir fry. We had a few veggies that needed to be eaten (bok chou, broccoli, eggplant) and combined with soy sauce, hoisin, sriracha and fish sauce, it was delicious!
And for dessert? Some homemade granola. Yum!
Some questions for you:
- I need a new breakfast. Any ideas? What’s your go-to?
- Have you ever pickled?
- What’s your favorite/least favorite kind of apple? I love so many kinds it’s hard to pick a favorite. Least favorite – red delicious!

So many good eats! The breakfast looks especially satisfying to me. Mixed nuts are my weakness. I cannot stop going back to jar!
My favorite apples are gala! And you just reminded me that I have been meaning to make some homemade granola soon!
Granola for dessert sounds perfect to me. I can never portion control that stuff though!
I love ALL the veggies in your meals. Can you make me a to-go bag? Ha!
I’m an eggy-oats kind of girl for most breakfasts. I love changing up the fruit and toppings to keep it fresh. It’s so filling. I can’t resist!
Haha I’m a big fan of veggies and fruit. A day without them is sad. Do you have eggs with your oats?
I totally agree!
Yes, I do! I either crack an egg right into the pot of oats or I make a side of eggs to go with the oats. They are a must!
YUM! I got into a homemade granola making kick for awhile and have been out of it since last winter…but fall is in our midst so who knows!
My go to breakfast is definitely Protein Pancakes! I have a recipe on my site and I love love love them, we usually have those or protein waffles, same mix just put it in the waffle maker! YUM!
I don’t know if you’ve ever tried Klaussen pickles but they are the only ones my husband LOVES to eat, I’d love to try home made ones though that looks awesome!
I have been craving pickles lately and thought there must be a simple way to make them. I had it on my list of things to browse Pinterest for. Can’t believe how easy your method was. Definitely going to have to try that out. What a great looking day of food…including dinner that involved no cooking to top it off!
Yes! So easy. Try them out!
Just make sure you get pickling cucumbers
I get tired of eggwhites too sometimes I have glut free oatmeal whip up a protein pancake with maple syrup or honey
