This month What I Ate Wednesday, hosted by Peas and Crayons, goes green! You'll see some green in my meals today, but not as much as I would have liked. I did drink a fair amount of airborne, though that was hot pink...eh, you win some, you lose some.
Something New (Breakfast): I decided to try something I've seen on healthy eating/living blogs for quite some time now - overnight oats! I always enjoyed oatmeal growing up, and thought, hey I can give this a shot. Turns out? I'm not the biggest fan. I think I enjoy warm oatmeal too much to like it cold and mushy. Kinda reminded me of soggy cereal...Anyone else feel that way??
|Overnight oats included 2/3 cup oats, 3/4 cup skim milk, 1 6 oz 0% strawberry Chobani, 2 tbsp chia seeds|
I enjoyed the banana! ...but couldn't even finish the batch.
|Two hard-boiled eggs with salt and pepper, broccoli, |
a mini whole wheat bagel with peanut butter & a cara cara orange
The blue part was especially true when I had to miss a dinner with some of my favorite girls. We take turns hosting each month, and I wanted to see Jourdan and her itty bitty belly (she's pregnant!!), but didn't want to get her (or baby!) sick. I initiated a nice little pity part (a handful of whole grain pita chips with some pesto cheese), which quickly turned into a nap on the couch with the pup.
Something Ordered (Dinner): Since I was planning to go to Jourdan's for dinner - and I have the whole tray of lightened-up deviled eggs to prove it (recipe coming soon!) - I had no intention of cooking. The hubby was sweet and ordered some Chinese food for us to nosh on so I didn't have to come up with something. (I do, however, have dinner planned for the rest of the week so keep an eye out for some new recipes!)

and a shrimp roll, which I split with John
Oh wait...I like this one. Disregard above comment.
