Day in the Life Vlog: Eating More

It’s time to see my face in action again.

…If you want, that is. For this week’s What I Ate Wednesday, I filmed a frenzied vlog for you all. I had a lot of fun filming and editing this, and I hope you have fun watching it too! As in, I hope you get a kick out of me embarrassing myself.

The theme of my eats recently is just eating MORE, or at least eat more densely. Honestly, I didn’t eat that much more than usual yesterday. However, one great thing is that I didn’t think too much about eating. I just ate what I was craving when I wanted it. For instance, I could have eaten Greek yogurt for dessert, but I wanted ice cream, so I had ice cream.

Anyway, I’ll let the vlog do the rest of the talking.

If you don’t want to watch the vlog (I totally understand) or if you’re not in a place where watching videos is socially acceptable, here’s a regular blog run-down of yesterday’s eats!


three whole wheat banana pancakes with full fat Greek yogurt, lots of nut butter, maple syrup + glass o’ milk


salad with curried tuna salad and quinoa + 34 Degrees crackers + Pirate’s Booty + lots of peanut butter with a banana


multigrain toast with sunflower seed butter and berries


more Pirate’s Booty


Italian sautéed chicken thighs with caramelized onions, tomato, and garlic herb cheddar on a whole wheat bun + green beans


leftover corn muffin + vanilla ice cream with the last of the macerated strawberries


a generous spoonful of Nuttzo power fuel


WIAW partying with the master of Peas and Crayons

Hope you all have a wonderful Wednesday! Don’t forget to laugh at yourself and dance like nobody’s watching 😉

So tell me:

Yay or nay to vlogs? (I will not be offended if you say nay.)

What did you eat for dinner last night?

Did you have a “facepalm” moment yesterday like I did with taking out the trash too late?

  1. Already commented on your video on Youtube but #yolo. I must ask, what is this Pirate’s Booty you speak of? Such an odd name and a strange looking food source. You have piqued my curiosity my dear.
    And dinner last night… uhhh… Tortellini! It was great 😀 But the sweet potatoes I just ate for dinner tonight were even better 😉 (with tuna mixed with thousand island dressing – it’s amazing I tell you!).

  2. YAY to your vlogs — you’re adorable ❤ I can't even tell you how many times I've wanted to vlog, but I always keep making excuses. Wanna pester me about it until I give in? 😀

    Dinner last night waassssss… I think a mock burrito bowl? Beans, rice, salsa, guac, veggies. Good stuff 🙂 And I think my entire day was a face palm yesterday. But I was too frazzled and barely remember any of it.

  3. I love vlogs 🙂 Keep ’em coming! Also, I’ve never tried Pirate’s Booty but it must be popular/delicious because a fictional book I was reading the other day mentioned binging on it 😀

  4. Aww, you’re adorable, Alison. So to answer your question: yes to vlogs! I’m not always a fan of them but yours are fun to watch.
    Looking at that Pirate’s Booty [not available over here] I think you’d be a HUGE fan of ‘Erdnussflips’ (think peanut Pirate’s booty).

  5. I freaking loved this and love you!!!!!!! Day made!!!!!!! I vote for many more vlogs bc You’re hysterical and now I know for sure we would be tight (like spandex😉😳🙈) if we lived closer

  6. I LOVE your VLOGs. Inspirational to me, they are!!! :))) Thanks Alison. I think you should do them all the time. I especially love dancing in the kitchen.

  7. LOOOOOVE your vlogs chica!! we need to live on the same side of the country so we can have kitchen dance parties together ❤ wish i could make more vlogs without being an obnoxious roommate talking to myself while i'm doing..everything.. haha! we'll see if it happens in the future!
    side note: what camera do you use?

  8. Alison! I know we haven’t talked before but my name is Emily and I love your blog! I am going through the exact same thing to be honest…. I think your blog is awesome in so many ways and I loved your VLOG! I mainly just have recipes on my blog but I am trying to expand it:) So yeah, let me know if you ever wanna talk 🙂

  10. Yes! I loved this vlog, you should do more! Lol, now that it’s two months later! But I have to ask, what did you use to edit your video? We are trying to find some sort of software to edit a movie that we were trying to make for a project we were doing, but have hit a roadblock. We didn’t want anything super expensive or technical for just one project, but we couldn’t find anything that fit that criteria. Do you know of anything? It’s fine if you don’t, I just thought I’d ask! 🙂
