Welp, as I mentioned, I’m back at work from maternity leave. Which means – back to my typical office eats. Every day is somewhat different, but for today’s What I Ate Wednesday, I wanted to share a pretty typical day of food and snacks when 99% of the food I ate that was at my office. Here are last Thursday’s eats!
Breakfast was oats – I’ve been on an egg kick lately, but B was traveling for work and didn’t have time to make me eggs and since I’m lazy, I made some egg white oats and topped it with banana and mixed nuts. They were SO good! I love egg whites in my oats heated up – they fill me up longer AND take on a custardy type texture.
Snacks also included more mixed nuts. Here are the containers we have at work.
Lunch is not that pretty looking but it hit the spot! A ton of roasted veggie s(squash, eggplant, onion, zucchini) and some ground chicken gyro meat that was leftover from dinner. All on top of some spinach. YUM.
Later snacks included an apple.
And a few of these boobie balls. Or energy balls – whatever you want to call them. I may have consumed more than 2 as the day went on …
Dinner was one of my favorite quick and easy meals – roasted veggie hash topped with a runny egg. I need more easy quick meals in my life!
And of course, dessert. Arctic Zero Vanilla Maple topped with some chocolate chips, chocolate wafers and PEANUT BUTTER. There was more peanut butter on the bottom too.
That was it for my What I Ate Wednesday eats! I headed to bed literally right after my dessert and conked out. I’m so tired now that I’m back at work. Between running, working, and not sleeping (FW is still waking up 1-2 times a night to eat), I’m not sure how my brain is functioning most days.
Some questions for you:
- Do you like Arctic Zero? Favorite flavor?
- Do you prep lunches for work/school in advance or make them daily?

I don’t love Arctic Zero as much as I used to (I used to eat it ALL the time!) but I do like the Brownie Blast flavor. Now I’m all about Halo Top. Have you tried it?
Oh i LOOOOOVE halo top! But it’s so hard to find near me!
Swooooon runny egg yolk over roasted veggies is the besssstttttt. It really is my favorite meal. And so dang easy and cheap. Win! I’ve never tried, or even seen, Arctic zero. But I’m so curious.
Arctic Zero is pretty good when you want the feel (But not taste) of ice cream. HALO TOP is where it’s at though!
Roasted butternut squash with an egg on top is one of my favorites. It’s incredibly comforting and warm. Your dessert is on point. Looks like a winning combo. I love the nut containers at your work! Such a cool idea.
ooooh i love that idea!!! Do you put any spices on the squash?
Just salt and pepper. Maybe a little cayenne if I’m feeling crazy 😉
Looks awesome! I need some delicious fall squash in my life!
I LOVE a good squash! Delicata is one of my favorites because it’s so versatile and easy – you can eat the skin!
So many good eats, a typical day for me is very similar. I love egg whites in my oats and always pack a salad with lean protein and roasted veggies for lunch with an apple. And the brownie blast Arctic Zero is my favorite. There are a few other flavors I haven’t tried yet though.
