Dessert Before Dinner [WIAW #43]

Can we talk about how it snowed yesterday? Actually let’s not. Wait, really quick though: I was wearing shorts and a tank top on Saturday. Yesterday I was confined to my compression leggings and a hoodie. Something is not right. Here’s hoping that the forecast is correct and the temps will start to rise again today/tomorrow!

I really wish these weeks would slow down. I can’t believe it’s already April 16, yet another Wednesday flying by. I think blogging also makes time go faster. Maybe I was subconsciously trying to make time slow down so that’s why I didn’t post the last two weeks? I dunno. Regardless, I didn’t feel right not doing What I Ate Wednesday. It’s just not the same when I don’t take pictures of my food all day. Thanks to Jenn for hosting!


I made a slammin’ bowl of oatmeal yesterday, if I do say so myself (which I do). I made zucchini oats – typical – but on the bottom I let frozen blueberries do their thing and warm up. Even though all you can see is cinnamon and coconut on top, there was also bananas and coconut oil. When the coconut oil mixes with the cinnamon, it’s a wonderful taste explosion.



Lunch was my current latest obsession, still not going away anytime soon. I made my fabulous avo toast on Ezekiel bread with Veganaise, and on the side I had baby carrots and cottage cheese.



At work, I snacked on an apple with PB, but at this point you really don’t need a picture.


Dessert before dinner! I met up with Kaitlyn (who, by the way, made a killer infographic about nuts and different ways to use them… go check it out here) for some froyo. Even though the temps were below 40 degrees. I like to live life on the edge, and also I just like froyo. Plus, I got two punches on my froyo card because they do it by weather.



For dinner, I whipped up some brown rice and quinoa pasta and paired it with chicken and roasted broccoli. I’m having a marinara moment right now, so I put that on my meal as well, mixed with olive oil. Is it weird that in a jar of pasta sauce the serving size is like 5 or something, and I only get about 2 1/2 servings out of it? I’m a sauce girl for sure.


I can’t wait until it’s still light after 8 pm because these dark pics are killing my vibe.

Questions of the Day:
>> What was the weather where you are yesterday?
>> Tell me your favorite thing you ate yesterday.



  1. That’s an AWESOME looking bowl of oatmeal! 🙂 It’s always a good time for froyo… My hubby and I went out in a snowstorm one time to get froyo. Thanks for sharing this!
    We got snow yesterday…The best thing I ate was a turkey and spinach stuffed bell pepper.

  2. I’m pretty sure I almost cried when I looked out the window yesterday. It’s a little warmer and sunny out today….but there’s still snow on the ground. Not impressed. But I’m pretty sure I could eat ice cream or froyo outside in a blizzard (actually, over the winter I did eat it outside once or twice…)

  3. Let’s not talk about the weather here yesterday. My favorite thing about yesterday was… I don’t know. Yesterday was kind of crappy. Anyway, did you know I also get 2 1/2 servings out of a 5 serving jar of sauce? BIG SURPRISE THERE. How is that pasta? I am a proud owner of it but it has not made it out of my pantry…

  4. The weather needs a reality check. It is springtime, not winter! I almost stopped for ice cream after class last night but my carpool friends wouldn’t allow it since it was so cold. I say ice cream and froyo are always good! Although I did settle for a mug of hot chocolate, a little more weather friendly.
