WIAW: Sweet and Salty

Ciao! Come stai?

I’m trying to be worldly in honor of the World Cup. Also, I’m glad you all enjoyed my Would You Rather vlog yesterday! I’m always nervous posting videos of myself…because, well, it’s my face and my voice and my eyes that can never focus on ONE THING.

Today I’m actually headed to Boston University for orientation! I’m the cliche mix of nervous and excited, but mostly excited. Pray that I make friends, please.

In the meantime, here are some of the sweet and salty eats I ate on some day last week. Sweet + salty is a match made in heaven, am I right?

Breakfast

Sweet: banana blueberry overnight oats // Salty: sunflower seed butter (On the bottom AND the top. I was feelin’ it.)

The absolute BEST.

Snack

Just sweet.

I didn’t add salt to these…

Lunch

Salty: cheesy scrambled eggs with whole wheat tortilla // Sweet: strawberry jam

Spinach salad with salt – pepper – honey – olive oil dressing

I’ve seen the funky jam+egg sandwich combo on other blogs before, and I’d always wanted to try it out. Last week I finally did, and it was pretty good! I think I may have spread too much jam on my tortilla though, because all I really tasted was the jam.

Snacks

Sweet: Greek yogurt with cinnamon, nutmeg, honey, banana // Salty: almond butter

If that’s not a beautiful snack, I don’t know what is.

Just salty: romaine with spinach artichoke hummus

Dinner

Leftover steak and potato hash + naturally salty salmon marinated in sweet vidalia onion dressing and dill + spinach

Random but deeeelicious!

Dessert

dried figs and greek yogurt

Just sweet: the usual dried figs with Greek yogurt

It’s just too good.

And that’s about it! I seriously don’t understand people who don’t enjoy sweet and salty things (I’m talking to you, Livv). It’s a taste symphony that was destined for our taste buds. It’s that deep.

Hope you all have a wonderful Wednesday!

So tell me:

What are your favorite sweet and salty combos?

Have you ever tried a jam + egg sandwich?
