It’s Wednesday, it’s Wednesday … woopwoop! Which means it is a day for sharing eats and seeing what other people eat. Yup, I love What I Ate Wednesday and all the foodporn that it results in!
Here are y eats from earlier in the week – a pretty boring weekday. But on a non-boring note, spoiler alert – the day DID end with some ice cream!
The day started with some of my favorite overnight oats. Same as last week but no yogurt this time – just oats, almond milk, banana, honey and some peanut butter. So delicious.
I had an apple and some nuts as well for a mid-morning snack.
Lunch was a mishmash of random things. I had plans to eat lunch out with coworkers at a new BBQ place (which would have made for a WAY more interesting WIAW post), but I ended up getting pulled into a few meetings and having to work through lunch. Luckily I had a random assortment of food at my desk – leftover tabbouleh and baba from Friday night, carrots, plus a sweet potato (half with honey and cinnamon) and half an avocado. YUM! It hit the spot.
I had some assorted hard candy for snacks that afternoon. Per usual.
And a pear. Because pregnant Melissa LOVES FRUIT.
B and I had our hospital tour after work that night. We got a quick tour of where I’ll be giving birth – wow. Somewhat made things a little more real to us! Anyway, that meant a late but quick dinner was needed – so we stopped off and had dinner at The Soupermarket. I had their jambalaya soup, some amazing bread and B and I split the Market Greens salad.
And I pulled the whole “I’m pregnant and want ice cream” and we stopped off at Sweet Moses on the way home. B got a root beer float and I got some salted caramel ice cream with toffee topping. SO GOOD. But I was stuffed!
I tend to get VERY full during pregnancy – I’m well into the third trimester now and after some meals I just can’t get comfortable. That was the case after the ice cream. But so worth it! A perfect way to end my What I Ate Wednesday day.
Some questions for you:
- Do you need dessert every night? What do you have?
- How much fruit do you eat on a daily basis? I eat fruit at least 2x a day.

I’m definitely the kind of person who needs dessert every night, even if it’s just some fruit. It’s a habit I should probably break, but I could have a lot worse habits!
I actually really dislike overnight nights when made with yogurt, so I much prefer just using almond milk. And I’ve never thought to out honey on my sweet potato – YUM!
I need dessert every single night no matter how full I am. I won’t be “satisfied” until I have at least something sweet. Its almost always some form of chocolate – and lots of fruit 🙂
i’m not much of a sweets person — a piece or two of dark chocolate does me just fine — so i basically never eat dessert, as it really doesn’t tempt me. i definitely always ate it as a child tho! we were an ice cream/cookies/all the things household for sure. fruit, though — GIVE ME ALL OF IT. LOVE.
I completely agree with you that every day should end with ice cream. I’m a huge sweets person, sometimes, a little too much. I’m also loving all the delicious fruit you’re eating. 🙂
Ever since discovering WINK FROZEN DESSERTS – I am totally going to have to agree with you on that! hahaha!
My night snacks can be either sweet or salty. I love ice cream though, so that is a nice treat to end the day with! I try to have fruit at least twice a day, but more if I can swing it.
Ice cream is ALWAYS a must, seriously, I end the night on ice cream at least three days a week. Your ‘thrown together’ desk lunch looked pretty darn good considering it was made of random stuff.
I love a sweet and salty combo… ice cream is always a winner for me. Especially if it’s salted caramel… mmmm…
Sweet salty all the way
