I’m back this week with another WIAW after taking off last week to celebrate National Running Day.
I am a HUGE snacker (that is a word right?). Growing up my mom used to keep snacks everywhere. No matter where we were or what time of day it was, you said the words “I’m hungry” and a snack was instantly appeared – ah those were the days! This may or may not be the reason I’m known as the snack queen amongst my friends ;).
Okay let’s see what I ate yesterday.
Over the past week I’ve been trying to shake up my breakfasts with a few new recipes. This oatmeal could easily become a staple in my book – Mixed Berry French Toast Oatmeal. I seriously didn’t want this bowl to end, it really was THAT good. Thanks Courtney over at Sweet Tooth Sweet Life for a yummy breakfast!
I bought this HUGE (yes HUGE) bag of almonds at BJ’s a few weeks ago and I haven’t even made a dent in it yet, despite the fact that I’ve been having this combination of goodness for the past few days. It doesn’t get any better than Chobani, blueberries and raw almonds folks! I wasn’t able to snap a picture of this delish snack yesterday (sorry) since it was consumed during a meeting. Use the below pics and your imagination :)
Tofu salad, yes I said tofu salad. This invention may be my best yet. I promise to post the recipe soon, I just have to remember exactly how I made it. It was one of those “hmm, what do I have left in the fridge” days and literally everything went into the salad. It was delish spread across some WASA crackers and I also enjoyed some veggies too.
Since I workout in the afternoon I’ve been trying to have a protein filled snack before hitting the gym. So naturally smoothies have been on the menu. This one includes strawberries, peach and bananas. I added the Chobani to it once it was all mixed together – the yogurt combines with the fruit better that way.
This picture definitely does not do this meal justice. This may be the BEST dinner I’ve had in a while. In fact I made it three days in a row it was that good! Again, I need to fine tune the recipe before sharing, but be on the lookout. This is one you won’t want to miss.
What have been some of your go to / favorite snacks lately?
