Recap of yesterday for WIAW!


My meals have been rather habit-like the past few weeks. I usually like to cook more at night and have different lunches throughout the week, but I’m loving eating a sandwhich for lunch every day and I just can’t seem to find the time to meal prep lately.

Breakfast was simply 1/2 cup Greek yogurt with a sliced banana and 1 tbsp. Agave nector. Such a sweet and fresh breakfast.

P28 bagel with tuna salad, sliced peppers and one wedge of Laughing Cow French Onion cheese.

I snacked on some sliced peppers with a DIY dip. I used 1 tbsp. of Greek yogurt and mixed in some garlic powder and Kernal Season’s Popcorn Seasonings in Ranch to taste. Plus, a few scallions. It was a really good dip and it would be perfect in a big batch for the Big Game this weekend!

My new favorite salty/sweet combo, thanks for Running with Spoons for the idea! Cottage cheese and 1 tbsp. jelly or jam.

Afternoon snack, 1/2 Fuji apple with 1 tbsp. Better ‘n Peanut Butter. Classic snack.

I did a little leg work at the gym, some squating, dumb bell stiff-legged deadlifts, cable pullbacks and sumo squats with a kettle bell. It started getting super busy so I cut my workout short and headed home.

I made a delicious-o Better ‘n Peanut Butter chocolate protein shake with unsweetened Almond milk from Trader Joe’s. And a dollop of light cool whip to make it THAT much better.

Dinner was light as I’ve been eating really, really late lately (like 9-10 p.m.) and then because I wake up around 6:30-7:00, my digestive system is usually a little off. I’m going to try to either eat light dinners or earlier ones.

Homemade Pistachio Butter on a 1/2 P28 bagel with Agave drizzle. SO good.

  2. Whoa whoa whoa, pistachio butter?!?!??! I HAVE to try some of that! YUM

    I also love P28 breads/bagels – they are more filling because of the protein element. And just really delicious!

    Have a great day :)

    • I am SO obsessed with P28 … have you tried any of their peanut butters? I’m intrigued by them but they don’t have them in stores around here. Thanks for reading, Natasha!

  3. French onion is my favorite flavor of laughing cow!!! I like to melt mine into sauteed spinach and put it on toast with an egg!! Also, I’ve never thought about pistachio butter, but now that I have, I need it!

    • Melting Laughing cow? Uh, sounds awesome I never would have thought to do that. I’m lovin’ French Onion, last week had garlic and chive (I think) and also loved that one. I want to try the cinnamon-type flavor too!

  4. Cool whip on a protein shake?! You are officially a genius! haha :) Have you ever had cottage cheese mixed with apple butter?! omg sooo good.

    • Yum, I forgot how good cool whip is. I’ve never tried apple butter and cottage cheese but now you’ve got me wanting to. I actually randomly have a jar of apple butter too .. haha, trying ASAP!!!

  5. Everything looks delish! Yogurt and bananas are one of my favorite combos and I love having it for breakfast. I’m a creature of habit so it’s usually on repeat!

    • Man, on long and busy weeks it’s nearly impossible not to become a creature of habit … you need to for pure survival! Thanks for reading, Georgie!

  6. Damn! I always forget about WIAW until you remind me. Question: it’s technically supposed to be what I ate on Tuesday right?

    Also I love it when you wrap your sandwiches in brown paper. Presentation is everything :)

    • Haha … I’ll have to remind you sooner, like not on WIAW. And yes, technically What I Ate Tuesday but I just like to confuse people, ya know? :)

  7. I had a bunch of P28 on my WIAW too! :) Great minds think alike! Blessings!

  8. I need those bagels! I love green everything so that pistachio butter looks fantastic!

    • You should definitely try them! They’re so good, tons of protein and relatively low carb (maybe 22g?) as opposed to some bagels which are like 40 with little protein! They’re really filling and make great bread for sandwiches too!

  9. I’ve been on such a bagel kick lately! They have this amazing place in NYC called Bantam Bagels which is bagel balls filled with cream cream #amazing
