A couple weeks ago I showed you what a day looked like while on the 21 Day Fix, and then I ate the same meals for like 3 weeks… When it ain’t broke, don’t fix it, right? Haha, well I decided to mix things up last week and give you another look at what I’ve been eating. Thank you to Peas and Crayons for hosting the link-up!
What I Ate Wednesday Button
I’ve been adding in a lot more fats and, per my doctor’s recommendation (i.e. this was recommended specifically for me and my personal health so consult your doctor before significantly changing your diet), I’ve cut out all grains for a few weeks.
Without grains I have really been missing oatmeal (helloooo blog title!) so I tried out a recipe I found online for paleo oatmeal. Not exactly the same, but it works for now! Before breakfast, and after my morning workout, I had my SHAKEOLOGY! I know, I’m obsessed. But now that I’ve drank the cool-aid I just don’t get why everyone wouldn’t want to try it (pssst if you don’t like it you can return the empty bag for a full refund!) Haha okay, anyway, I had my shakeology with some spinach blended in and coffee in my new french press! SO fancy.

Well happy Wednesday everyone!
I hope you are all having a good week, and to get you over the hump I have a new recipe for you: Piña Colada Oatmeal! I was actually quite proud of myself for coming up with this one. I had bought some frozen pineapple from Trader Joe’s last week and I always add coconut oil to my oats, so somehow I put two and two together and BAM! It was a winner!

For today’s WIAW post, I thought I’d share some of the breakfasts that I’ve been making over the past couple of weeks to bring in to work with me. I get up early to head to the gym, come home and shower, get ready and by then I really just don’t have time to sit down and eat. I’ve found that bringing my breakfast to work makes things a lot easier and a few other people on my floor do the same!

This has been a loooong week for me, even though it’s only Wednesday! I arrived in Chicago at 7:30am Monday morning and headed straight to work, then my small group met that evening and I didn’t get to bed until about 10:30pm (which is very late for me…). I finally made it to the grocery store last night to grab a few essentials, but I didn’t get too much since I’m heading out of town again straight from work Friday night! I’m already exhausted just thinking about it, but I’m going to Kansas City and always love a good trip home.
For today’s What I Ate Wednesday, I wanted to share a lot of the food we ate during the Palmetto 200 Relay. How do you pack and figure out meals when you’re up and running for 32 hours? Well here’s what we did!

Halfway through the week, woooohooo! And guess what?! I leave for CHARLESTON tomorrow!!! So excited to head back to SC, have a great time running the Palmetto 200, and hopefully get a couple hours of sleep..?
Anyhoo, for this week’s WIAW I have another new recipe for you! IF you’re new to What I Ate Wednesday, head on over to Peas and Crayons to see what it’s all about and check out the other participating bloggers.

I’ve been having a fun time just throwing together things in the crock pot that I think would make a good soup. It’s pretty simple…

For this week’s What I Ate Wednesday, my recipe is perfect for the theme of the month: Love Your Veggies! I’m all about making crock pot meals for the week and I tend to just make them up based on what I already have. Today’s crock pot meal turned into kind of a chili/stew type dish. I had intended a soup but I’m kind of glad how it worked out!

I’ll be honest – I may not be a big spender but I’m also not the queen of budgets, especially when it comes to buying food. I tend to “pop in” to the grocery store on my way home from wherever I am a liiiiittle too often. Usually I’m out of something I actually need, like toilet paper, or almond milk, etc. However, once I get in there, it’s like all hell breaks lose and suddenly I’m buying way more than I intended.
Not only did I get into a little bit of a spending frenzy this past month, but I’ve got a few trips coming up in the spring/summer that I need to be saving up for. Because of this, I’m trying to be a lot more serious about my budget and one of the biggest places I know I can cut back is groceries.

Banana Protein Muffins .
Now that I’m going to be packing snacks more (more on that tomorrow, or Monday, and no, not a real job), I wanted to make something portable, full of protein and inexpensive to make. I love me some Quest Bars, but this is a much more affordable option.
I decided to make them muffins because I’m really bad at…

Okay, okay, so it doesn’t really look like a pancake… But that’s more due to my poor flipping skills.

For this week’s What I Ate Wednesday I’m going to share with you a recipe that I came up with last week when I was trying to just use up what was in my fridge, but now I’ve made several times because I liked it so much!

One of the biggest issues I have when it comes to eating well-rounded meals, or basically not snacking all through a meal, is that sometimes I’m just not in the mood to cook. Or, I’m hungry right then and don’t want to take the time to make something.
I was inspired this week by Lindsay’s Sunday Meal Prep post and decided to go ahead and try it for myself!..
