Wednesday! It’s like the halftime show of the week. So get a little crazy, do a little dance, move around, and…WIAW! Yes, I just made WIAW into a verb.
Do you ever have those days where all your meals consist of small snacks? Sort of like a full day sampler? That’s how my day was on Friday. I was also just really hungry at some points of the day, so I kept reaching for more things to nibble on. I like little bits of everything anyway, so it was quite a delicious and diverse day of eats!
Check out Jenn’s blog to see her and other bloggers WIAW too!
Friday was a snow day for us here in NY, so I slumbered until about 10 am and woke up hungry and ready for some waffles!
First, I needed something in my belly while I prepared the waffles:
Greek yogurt with banana, honey, and cinnamon
Then ’twas time for the star of the meal— Shortstacks Sweet Potato waffles (that we got a while ago through Groupon…of course)! We tried the vegan version of the batter, which uses almond milk and oil, and they turned out super tasty and fluffy. The sweet potato flavor was also unique and lovely. I just might try to make homemade sweet potato pancakes one day!
Left in the iron until crispy on the outside and still soft on the inside. Drizzle o’ maple syrup is obligatory.
And for some more healthy fats:
A handful or so of roasted, salted peanuts
Some carrots and hummus. Can’t go wrong.
Lentil soup from New Year’s with Crunchmaster crackers for…well, crunch!
Salad with sesame Mahi Mahi
Side of avocado toast with sea salt and freshly cracked black peppa
Eaten at my quasi-vanity/desk in my room since Ben and his buds were downstairs. Youtube bakers and chefs were my dining companions.
I’ve been having these little cute cups of frozen Greek yogurt from Healthy Choice as a sweet end to my nights. They’re the perfect size and very tasty! Also, I love the little messages on top:
Dark Fudge Swirl flavor. Although I’m not a huge chocolate ice cream fan, this doesn’t have enough chocolate to deter me from eating it. It’s just a nice subtle swirl of goodness.
I was up pretty late since I woke up so late, so I sorta had a second dessert…
I had all but two of the leftover monkey bread pieces from…last year technically. Don’t worry, they were still perfectly good! I added some Greek yogurt after I took this picture to make my snack a little more filling. And I just like Greek yogurt with everything.
And that concludes my day of super snacky eats! Sometimes, I’m in the mood for more cohesive, put-together meals. Yet other times like last Friday, I just want my food totally a la carte.
Have a great Wednesday!
So tell me:
Do you ever have days where your meals are just a bunch of snacks?
What are some of your favorite snacks?
Favorite way to satisfy your sweet tooth (semi-regularly)?

Yayy for snacky days! I’m a big-time snacker most of my days. In the same breath I’m not a fan of nibbling on things so I tend to go for a few largish ‘snacks’ in a day. Smooshed avo, salt and black pepper on toast?…winner! Crunch makes everything better right 😉
I usually do bigger snacks as well, but this day, I guess I was feelin’ the nibbles 😉 Yay for crunch!
I understand you 😉 I too big fan of snack! I could replace with small stings all food that at me is. Especially, if I stay at home for the whole day. I should be more reasonable to receive full a breakfast-dinner-dinner every day.
Staying at home definitely makes me more snacky!
LOVE that avocado toast!
Yum!! Looks like a delicious day! I’m a big snacker most days but then there are days I want a substantial meal too!
Currently ive been snacking Graham’s crackers and with pb and milk. Random but good!
Have a great Wednesday!xoxo
Mm that sounds like the perfect snack!
Hope you had a wonderful Wednesday as well, Katie 🙂
I am a huge snacker. I try to cut it down so that I have regular meals and two snacks a day. So far, it’s been working for me. The sweet potato waffle sounds good!
Your pictures are beautiful! They always make my mouth water! I must try sweet potato waffles some time, and also the Greek yogurt cups – I’m a HUGE ice cream fan, so I’m sure I’d enjoy those as a treat. 🙂 And I agree that Greek yogurt tastes good with pretty much everything! Have a good day, Alison!!
Thanks, Jess! Greek yogurt is the absolute best— plain or frozen. 🙂
Hope you had a wonderful day too, Jess!
A girl after my own heart 😀 When I spend a lot of time at home, I usually end up snacking the day away… Breakfast is pretty much the only meal that’s guaranteed to be an actual meal — lunch and dinner have a high probability of being made up of all sorts of random things.
As for my favourite snacks, fruit and AB is definitely up there, as are yogurt messes, cereal, granola bars, dark chocolate, and trail mix. I try to keep it healthy, but I can’t deny that cookies, cake, and ice cream sneak their way in there on a pretty regular basis too 😉
Agreed 🙂 Especially your birthday cake. If you need someone to help you clean up the leftovers….
I meant to tell you that I finished my almond butter jar today, and I’m actually kinda sad! I thought I would have been relieved since I would be able to open the peanut butter jar next, but I’m feelin’ a little sentimental. That AB had a unique flavor that definitely grew on me. (This is my life. Nut butter drama.) 😉
I’ve never heard of the frozen Greek yogurt before, but it sounds delicious. I love the sweet message on the lid too. I’d actually never heard of that quote before.
I had a snack day on Monday. I honesty think I had something in my mouth the majority of the day. Ha Ha.
Favorite way to satisify my sweet tooth is w/ frozen grapes!
I discovered the delicious of frozen grapes a few months ago, and I totally need to have some of those again. We have some grapes right now! 🙂
Mmmm I have had healthy choice froyo before, it’s sooo good! And yummy to those waffles 🙂
Yes, both were delicious! 🙂
salted peanuts are the most underrated nut possible. Seriously. So. Good.
Whenever I’m home for a lengthy period of time = snack the day away kind of day. Although I may need to cut that out and eat bigger meals instead- might help my satisfaction! Favourite snack is pretty boring but I make my microwave english muffin and change the topping. That, or I love jerky!
Word to that. I need to be careful around salted peanuts. It’s like THEY want to be in my mouth, I swear.
Ooo I haven’t had jerky in a while! I actually really like that stuff. It reminds me of road trips 🙂
Both those desserts look so good, but I just have an epic sweet tooth 🙂 Was the monkey bread difficult to make? That’s on my to-do list.
It’s super easy! I used this recipe: http://peasandthankyou.com/2012/09/03/healthy-monkey-bread/
Oh perfect! Thank you!!
