WIAW #5: Back to Normal

With going out of town for a few days, missing school, and preparing my students for the end-of-year state tests and finals, I've been a bit off schedule for the last two weeks.  Everything is winding down now, so I've been able to get back on schedule this week. 

Today's What I Ate Wednesday post features my food from Tuesday!  I was able to take pictures of EVERYTHING I ate for the first time.  Check out Jen's blog for a description of WIAW if you haven't already.

Thanks to Jen for hosting the link-up!


I started the day with some Honey Bunches of Oats Greek Yogurt cereal with milk.  I can't really taste the Greek yogurt in it, but it is tasty and pretty filling.

Morning Snack

I snacked on some apple slices in between classes to tie me over until lunch.  I always have my snack between the same two classes, so my 3rd period is always commenting on my snack of the day.  It's usually the same thing (either an apple or almonds), but I find it funny that they take note of things like that.


I'm back to my usual lunch of a salad!  This one had mixed leaf lettuce, tomatoes, onions, orange peppers, and cucumbers.  I put some canned tuna on top for a kick of protein.  I also had some pineapple and a mix of salt and vinegar chips and veggie straws.  Tasty lunch!

Afternoon Snacks

Between school and the gym, I had my usual Nature Valley Protein Bar snack.  This time, though, I tried the new Salted Caramel and Nut bar.  I picked these up on a whim for something different, and I'm so glad I did!  These bars are the perfect mix of sweet and salty and are incredibly satisfying at the end of the day.

After my run on the treadmill, I had 16 oz. of Fitmixer amino supplement!  This is a flavorful way to recover from the workout.  I'll talk more about this product a little later, but I really enjoy recovering from a workout with this drink.


I made my Simple Savory Pot Roast for dinner last night.  I put everything together in the morning, Joe turned it on before he left for class, and it was ready when we got home!  I didn't need anything on the side because of the red potatoes and carrots cooked with the roast.  Yummy!

Evening Snack
Joe and I wanted something sweet, so I decided to whip up the brownie mix I had in the cupboard.
Part 1 of my snack was the leftover batter.  I can't make brownies/cake/cookies without liking the bowl or spoon!
Part 2 of my snack was a brownie!  I had orange creamsicle frosting and pink lemonade frosting in the fridge, and I decided to see how they taste on the brownie.  The winner: Pink Lemonade frosting!  The orange creamsicle had a bit of a strange taste with the chocolate.

There you have it!  The typical meals for me.

Question for you: What's a usual meal for you (either breakfast, lunch, or dinner)?
I'm such a creature of habit that my breakfast and lunch are usually the same every day.  I try to switch it up for dinner, though :)


  1. I love anything salted caramel flavor, so those look great! I always eat the batter, it's impossible not to!

    1. You would definitely love those bars, then. I crave them all day long!

  2. I now need a bowl of honey bunches of oats! Haven't had that in way too long :)
