What I Ate Wednesday

Happy What I Ate Wednesday (#WIAW) folks!  Last week was speedy, but this week is dragging.  Well, hopefully yours isn’t dragging, but that’s just me.

wiawAnywhooo, it’s time for the yum stuff.  See Peas & Crayons for other WIAW posts!

Breakfast: lowfait plain yogurt, 1/2 cup oats, 1/2 tsp chia seeds, and raspberries with a little Good Belly probiotic drink

parfaitI had real breakfast before working out today because I was too hungry to put it off.

wiawMy workout was month 7 of Tracy Anderson’s pregnancy DVD and 20 minutes of low-impact cardio.

Snack: salt-free rice cake and almond butter – I hadn’t tried AB in years, but apparently my tastes have changed.  It’s still no PB, but I like it.  Did you know some people say pregnant women shouldn’t eat PB because it can increase the child’s risk for a peanut allergy?  Yikes.  Say it isn’t so!

snackLunch: a little squash, a few carrots, and two turkey chili muffinsI made a batch for Kevin’s lunch too!

turkeySnack: frozen banana, milk, and chocolate protein shake topped with chocolate chips

shakeDinner: appetizer of a few handfuls of chips and some jambalaya

sausageThese sausages were pretty good, and as always, the shrimpies were tasty too.

shrimpDessert: chocolate pie!  graham cracker crust and organic pudding filling, mmmmm


  • Do you ever make a dessert for yourself without any other occasion?

  1. My mom didn’t eat peanuts while she was pregnant with me (they’re not huge in Europe) and I ended up with a peanut allergy anyways. Le boo. And who needs a special occasion to enjoy a dessert :P That pie sounds delicious… especially the pudding filling.

  2. I love jambalaya! I haven’t made it in ages though – that’s something I need to make again soon.

    And that chocolate pudding pie looks amazing. :D I don’t usually make dessert for myself if I don’t have an occasion. If it’s just an average weeknight and I want dessert, I’ll have something that doesn’t require much assembly like ice cream or chocolate.

  3. Good to know about the PB fact. I always thought that when I am pregnant I will eat a ton of peanut butter to prevent and allergy but knowing me I’d probably overdo it! Lately I’ve been into AB though. The Justin’s vanilla AB especially!

      I’ve heard really good things about Justin’s, but it was a little more pricey than the store brand one I got. Perhaps next time I’m splurge! ;)

  4. I just did a Tracy Anderson workout! (Not the pregnancy one, haha but still!)

    Mmm chocolate chips in a chocolate protein shake sounds delicious to me!

  5. If eating peanuts during pregnancy can cause allergies, any future children of mine are screwed. I wouldn’t be able to go 9 months without! ;-) And sometimes, you just need to pull together an awesome dessert without an occasion in mind :-p love the sounds of that chocolate pudding filling!

  6. I feel ya on the eating before working out! Sometimes I can make it by with just a banana but sometimes I wake up famished and breakfast is a must.

    I wish I made myself more desserts without an occasion. Normally I end up munching on some fruit or chocolate after dinner.

  7. Sometimes if I have a recipe that I really really want to test out, and then I share it with my house mates or guests!

  8. Oh man, that chocolate pie looks SO good!

  9. I eat rice cakes with almond butter nearly every day! They’re even better if you top with blueberries or strawberries & sprinkle with cinnamon!

    Totally not necessary to enjoy dessert when there isn’t a special occasion. Sometimes we just need a little treat.
    I didn’t know about the peanut thing! Interesting. I actually prefer almond butter to peanut butter!

  11. I definitely make desserts even when there isn’t a special occasion- gotta treat yourself!

  12. I think AB is definitely an acquired taste. I didn’t like it at first bite, but after eating it several times I fell in love!

  13. I’ve never heard that about pregnant women eating peanut butter! Hmm…I wonder if it’s true.
    I would be okay eating almond butter and sunflower butter in the meantime.

    That chocolate pie, holy yumminess.

    love sweat beers? OMG, you’re a girl after my own heart!! Okay, I’d be more like love, sweat, wine, but that’s just semantics. Great to find your blog!

  15. I luv chicken sausage! I really like chicken apple sausage!
    Everything looks mouthwatering! Yum

  16. No PB? I’d die! Good thing I’m not pregnant ;)

  17. mmm i love chicken sausage :)

  18. that’s so crazy about the pb! i would have thought the opposite!

  19. I have definitely been known to make dessert for myself, but now that I have my son I don’t feel so bad because we can share!

    That pie looks so good! Dessert for myself? A big yes! I have some chocolate protein chia pudding in the fridge at the moment waiting only for me tonight :-)

  21. Serena says:

    I absolutely find excuses to eat dessert alll the time :) Chocolate and I are quite in love. That pie looks PHENOM!

  22. Hmmm, my mom ate a lot of ice cream when she was pregnant with me because she had a hard time with keeping her weight up…figures I’d develop lactose intolerance! Ha! :(

    That jambalaya looks amazing!! I’ve seen those sausages before but have never tried them.

    I’m not much of a dessert person, but some of my breakfasts would lead you to think otherwise! ;)
