What I Ate Wednesday: Stuck in a Rut

Good Morning to all my foodie peeps! I’ve been married for 18 years today! I cannot believe it has been that long. In no way, shape or form does it seem like it’s been 18 years. Yes, I was VERY young when I got married. I’m so lucky to get to wake up next to my best friend every day. Here’s to 18 more!

It’s that day again… What I Ate Wednesday. Yesterday was a delicious day of eats, but I have to admit, it’s the same old thing I’ve been eating for weeks.

I’ve been starting most mornings with a huge bowl of warm and very filling oats. Oh and you better believe there was plenty of coffee involved. I’ve been fixing my oats like these Pumpkin Banana Oats, but instead of using pumpkin, I mash up 1/2 of a small banana and dice the rest of it in the cooked oats. Yesterday, I topped my oats with blueberries, diced strawberries, Chocolate Peanut Butter Granola and a tablespoon of Trader Joe’s crunchy salted peanut butter (love that stuff). Oatmeal is one food that really keeps me full all morning until lunch, plus it’s delicious. Why change a good thing?!?! Sorry to keep using this pic, but a bowl of oats is a bowl oats and there was no sunlight for a pic.

Like I said the oatmeal keeps me full until lunch time, so no mid-morning snack is needed. Lunch has also been more of the same. Even though it got up to 87 degrees today, I was still craving soup for lunch. You’re not really stuck in a rut, if you enjoy that rut, right? ;) I had made my Roasted Cauliflower Carrot Soup on Sunday, so leftovers it was. This soup is so creamy delicious and pairs perfectly with a grilled cheese. Instead of slathering butter on my bread when I make grilled cheese sandwiches, I just spray a little coconut oil cooking spray on one side of each slice…. perfection! Another filling meal for the day, so there was no need for a pre-workout snack.


After lunch, I headed out to pick Madelyn up from her horse camp; which is a bit of a drive. Once I got her back home, it was time for a workout session. I ran for three miles and then did a leg/tricep workout…. love working legs and my triceps need all the help they can get. Back at home, it was dinner time. I’ve been having the same dinner day in and day out. I’ve even had it for breakfast here and there. It’s quick, healthy, filling, delicious and all of my favorites on one plate! I scramble two organic cage-free eggs with a handful of fresh organic spinach. While my egg is cooking, I slice an organic pink lady or gala apple and drizzle a tablespoon of nut butter over it. I serve it all with about 1/2 cup of organic cottage cheese; which I snack on while getting everything ready. Easy and yum!

After dinner, there was more coffee….. I’m still loving my Chocolate Glazed Donut k-cups. I also snacked on some sweet banana chips and 1/2 of my Skinny Blueberry Muffins, that don’t taste skinny.

Love days like yesterday and I’m sure it will be more of the same today! Plans for today are to clean my house, get my car washed and figure out a new recipe I can create. I need to get my butt in the kitchen soon!

Something to think about….

What deliciousness did you eat yesterday?

When you find a meal that you love, is it on repeat?

What meal do you eat over and over again and never get sick of?

    To answer one of your questions, I could eat salads every single day – oh & apples paired with either a quest bar or nut butter.

  10. Oh my goodness, I am SO guilty of meal repetition, especially for breakfast. I find a favorite breakfast and I eat it almost every day for six months, then I change it up. But, really, is six months of oatmeal EVER a bad thing?? :) Same goes for lunch–almost every day, I have a bunch of veggies and beans over a roasted sweet potato. Every day.

    Have a wonderful Wednesday, love!! xoxo

  15. I definitely get stuck in ruts. Of course, they don’t feel like ruts! Lately I’m loving green smoothies with cacao nibs and chia seeds on top. Something tells me tomorrow’s 20-degree temps will end the streak, though.

    Happy anniversary!

  16. I have been wanting to try salted peanut butter but what’s the taste difference in your opinion? And I am totally a oats and eggs lover too!

  17. Congrats on your marriage! When I find a good meal, I tend to throw it into repeat mode :) It’s super tough when I’m living on my own and buy food because I end up making the same meals for a week.
