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!
