Go visit Jenn, our hostess at Peas & Crayons for the “What I Ate Wednesday” link party!
Breakfast (at work):
Ugly (but delicious) overnight oats – made from organic Better Oats single serve package. My favorite is the “Bare” variety, which is described as:
- USDA Organic
- 41 grams of whole grains per serving
- 200 mg of ALA Omega-3 per serving
- Organic whole grains: Oats, Barley, Quinoa, Rye, Wheat
- Organic whole flaxseeds
- Good source of Fiber
I pre-cooked them Monday night with cinnamon and protein powder, then stirred in some almond milk and cinnamon raisin PB before reheating. I love the chewy texture and flavor of these oats. Has anyone else tried their products?
One of my coworkers brought in a huge bag of her kids’ Halloween candy. I grabbed a bag of mini pretzels to much with peanut butter as a midmorning snack.
I had to help her out by grabbing an Almond Joy, too!
Leftover pizza that I made during the football game Sunday. I also brought in some Kiwi Berries that I mentioned last week.
When I went to grab them out of the communal fridge in the lunch room, they were gone! I’ve had someone steal my baby carrots from the work fridge before (I figured that was an easy mistake because so many people bring them in), but I was really mad about the berries! They were the last of my stash, expensive, and whoever took them took my Tupperware container too!
Leftover “fries” from the Iowa Girl Eats recipe.
I also had half a banana and a handful of cashews. I went to a 6:45 spin class that really challenged me – I love when the really tough instructors show up!
The hubby and I shared a late, light dinner of some brown rice sushi.
I thought there would be leftovers for my lunch today, but no such luck!
One of the older ladies in my parents’ neighborhood makes homemade candy apples and chocolates every year for Halloween. She told us once that she starts making them in August (and freezes them)! Growing up, it was always the house you had to visit first - the line was long and you had to make sure you got your candy apple before she ran out!
This year, she saved a few for my family, even though my brother and I are too old to trick-or-treat. I enjoyed a slice after our sushi.
Have you ever had someone steal your food? Any fun Halloween traditions in your family?
