What I ate Wednesday

Woo hoo!
I've joined up on one What I Ate Wednesday link up in the past, and found out that taking a picture of all your meals is actually hard work! But I made up my mind that I was going to do it, so here it is!
What I ate Wednesday is hosted by Peas & Crayons and today is her birthday, so you definitely need to go check it out!
(In the interest of full disclosure, my What I Ate Wednesday actually took place yesterday, on Tuesday.)

For breakfast, I had the amazing overnight oats that I cannot get enough of. I'm not joking. I've eaten about 3 pounds of oats in the last month or so.
Oh yeah! I started adding chia seeds to my oats. Chia seeds have been all over the internet for forever, and are supposed to be really good for you, so I started adding them. My oats still taste the same and now they're even better for me. Bonus!
(side note: have you ever had Larabars?? If you haven't, you need to! They're basically just dates and nuts processed together into a bar, so they're 100% healthy, and surprisingly 100% delicious!)

Lunch was leftovers from that delicious, calorie exlosion lunch I told you about over the weekend. Remember, leftovers are not meant to be pretty, photogenic food. They are meant to fill in when you're feeling lazy and/or have a baby that decided she's anti-sleep.

(Insert some un-photographed snacks here. My camera cannot keep up with my snacking.)

Dinner was going to be pizza tonight.....but I decided I needed some veggies in my life, so I got out my trusty crock pot and made beef stew. Ours is very simple. Sirloin, peas, carrots, green beans, corn, potatoes and beans.
Oh, and cornbread. I LOVE cornbread. Cornbread drenched in butter. That's what I'm talkin' 'bout!

And here's one snack that hopped in front of the camera. Cute clementines!

Did you eat anything delicious today?


  1. I LOVE that you ate butter with some corn bread. :)

    I had PB and bread for breakfast and lunch, which is why I don't participate in WIAW :P

  2. Never used chia seeds but I use a lot of ground flax-seed. Good, healthy stuff and you can put it in anything (breads, pancakes, oatmeal, meatloaf, I even stirred it in Gemma's chocolate ice cream once!). You should check it out if you haven't.

  3. Holy moly, no one would want to see what I eat in a normal day. It would go on and on forever! I'm a fan of your honesty with the cornbread with your butter :) I'm that way with peanut butter. It's an addiction.

    And also, I was curious about the overnight oats, so I checked out the post where you explained them. I LOVE oatmeal. I make it on the stove with milk. The only thing is, it takes a lot longer than, say, toasting an english muffin, or I'd eat it EVERY morning always. LOVE it.

    I was really digging this overnight oats idea until I realized it's cold. I'm not sure how I'd feel about cold oats, but I'll try anything once, and Summer IS coming, which means cold meals will sound more appealing soon.

    Thanks for the recipe!

  4. share the cornbread mmkay? hehe! um and the leftovers SO LOOK GOOD! I would eat em!
