WIAW - Pretzels and Nutter Butters!

It's WEDNESDAY!!! Am I the only one who's thinking "FINALLY?!?!?!?" This week has been loooooong. But, at least we're half way through! 

Anyway, Wednesday means What I Ate Wednesday (WIAW)! As a reminder, WIAW was this girls baby. The concept is to share one days meals/snacks/etc. in its entirety. It's a great way to reflect on what you're REALLY eating in a day to ensure you're eating enough, not eating too much, and all that jazz. Alright, let's hop to it!

Breakfast: 8:30am
Coffee (in a snowman mug!) with sugar free creamer and a Chocolate Peppermint Stick Luna bar. I had a 8:30am meeting, so I needed something quick and easy (and discrete) to eat during it. I only ended up eating about 1/2 the bar over the course of an hour... I love that flavor, but it was still just a little too much PROTEIN bar for me.

Snack 1: 11am
After the lighter than usual breakfast, I was HUNGRY when the meeting got out and knew I wouldn't make it through my afternoon "lunch hour" run and to lunch without a little snack. Bag of pretzels for the win.

Lunch: 1:30pm
Crock pot shredded buffalo chicken (SOOOO easy! Just put raw chicken breast and Franks hot sauce in your crock pot. Cover and cook on low for 5-6 hours. Shred chicken. SO GOOD.) made into a sandwich on that low-fat bun. Apple. Carrots. I had a Greek yogurt too, but didn't end up eating it.

Snack 2: 4:30pm
We keep snacks in my office and I saw one of my student workers eating these and couldn't stop thinking about them. I finally broke down and had a bag. It's only like 130 calories or something, so not terrible and just enough to satisfy a PB/sweet tooth craving.

Dinner: 6:45pm
The Hubs and I made Italian Beef in the crock pot this weekend. It wasn't the best I've ever had. Meh. Anyway, I had left overs with brown rice, all topped with Siracha.

Dessert: 8pm
Far too many spoonfuls of <unpictured> homemade ice cream. So good.


  1. Oh man, I had totally forgot about how awesome & delicious nutter butters are!! I bet they would've been AWESOME topped on your ice cream :)

    1. They are SOOO good. And, YES! It would have been amazing on my ice cream. You're a genius!!
