WIAW: On Repeat

Tori Kelly is not the only thing on repeat for me right now.

I have a lot of foods that I don’t mind eating on consecutive days, or even consecutive meals, which you might notice from all my Instagram (<—follow me!) photos. My photo albums on my computer are basically galleries of oatmeal, salmon salads, avocado toast, and yogurt bowls. The downside to always looking through these delicious food pictures is that they make me hungry! Tough life, right?

This week I noticed more repeated food items than usual, partially because there were so many leftovers, but mostly because I just like those foods a lot. However, I usually try to put a different spin on each meal so that my palate doesn’t get bored. Breakfast always has repeats though because it’s my favorite meal of the day, and I like to stick with foods that I know I love. One day I should post a list of all the different breakfasts I eat!

Also, despite the fact that I eat a lot of the same foods every day, I still love taking new pictures of them. It’s definitely blogger thing, isn’t it? Although, the first two breakfast photos below are recycled….But I promise the other ones are from this past week!

Of course, I’m showing you all my food as a part of Jenn’s fabulous What I Ate Wednesday party! (PS: Her little baby girl is the ca-yutest ball of smiles ever!)




{Repeat} More of Kath’s baked oatmeal with nut butter. The recipe makes four servings and I’m the only one that eats it in my house, so I’ve been having it a few mornings. Not complaining! (Recycled photo)


{Repeat} Overnight oats. Of course my favorite breakfast has to be on repeat! (Recycled photo, but they all look the same)


{Repeat} Peanut butter balls and Rice Krispies + banana with PB. Not anything you haven’t seen.


{Repeat} Most photographed breakfast on my Instagram: Whipped banana oats with a dollop of nut butter.


{Repeat} Pumpkin-banana bread that I made on Halloween. Topped with more of the good stuff.


This week my mom made delicious turkey, cheese, and spinach sandwiches, so that’s what I’ve been eating at school. I should try taking pictures of my school lunches more often for a lil’ bit of a visual.

I did have a fabulous lunch at home on Saturday after dance:


Avocado toast and lentil soup

And this is what a typical company Sunday brunch looks like before rehearsal:


Half a bagel with scallion cream cheese, Boo Berry cereal, and an apple

Brunch is one of our beloved bonding traditions that we have every Sunday! Every weekend that we have rehearsal, two or three girls are responsible for buying brunch for the whole company (15 of us + our company director), and we just rotate every week so that each person buys brunch at least twice (sometimes three times) in the year. There’s always bagels, cereal, fruit, and some other snacks that the girls decide to make/buy, so this meal is definitely has {repeats}. For some of my friends, this is their breakfast, but since I teach Sunday school in the morning and have breakfast before that, this is my lunch.

These super yummy freeze-dried edamame! They’re crispier and lighter than some other dried edamame I’ve tried. My mom got these from Costco, and I highly recommend them!


{Repeat} Yogurt + fruit bowls. All the time.

{Repeat} Lentil soup. This time with grilled cheese and tomato + salad with pickled beets and pumpkin.


{Repeat} Salad. This time with curry tofu and a hard boiled egg + toast + mango.


{Repeat x2} Salad with salmon, sautéed onions and Brussels sprouts + avocado toast.


{Repeat} Brussels sprouts. This time with gnocchi + Thai basil ground turkey.

And that’s about it for now! It has been a wonderful week of great food thanks to mom’s home cooking. College is going to be quite the transition… *Sigh*

Have a great day, everyone!

So tell me: What foods do you have on repeat all the time? Any new snacks that you’re loving?

  1. I eat a lot of the same foods every day too, but I try to eat them in different forms. Lots of egg whites, roasted veggies, tuna, salmon, chicken, salads, apples and greek yogurt.

    Those freeze dried edamame snacks look fantastic. I think even my kids would love them. I’m off to check if they’re available in Canada.

  2. Well, if it ain’t broke… 😉

    I think most people tend to eat the same thing on a regular basis — it’s a lot easier and more convenient than trying to think up new things all the time. I mean, sure, switching up your eats makes things a little more interesting, but it makes you miss those favourites, too. Like I’d feel a little off if I went a day or two without eating oatmeal, which is pretty much my go-to breakfast because I love it so much. If you’re happy and satisfied, then there’s no reason to mess.
