What I Ate Wednesday #107

Here we are again! It’s Wednesday! The last few weeks have been crazy busy with finishing up my old job, taking a small vacation, and this week starting a new job! I haven’t had time to write up recipe posts lately but will do so soon. For now, hope you enjoy another installment of WIAW. This day documents my eats from my first day at my new job!

I started off the day with a happy breakfast. I figured I should start the day on a positive note and made a delicious breakfast that smiled back at me! Almond butter toast and a banana.

My first day of work went really well. It was completely packed with meetings and training sessions from the minute I arrived, but luckily I found a little down time to snack on one of my homemade granola bars. I was starving by the time I had this!

After more meetings, getting a badge, filling out paperwork, etc. I had lunch with a few ladies in my office, it was really nice! Here you’ll see all of what I packed that day. Pineapple as a side, and an arugula, veggie quinoa, chickpea salad with guacamole! My snack taxi had a plain rice cake in it which I ate later that afternoon while going through my emails.

On my way home from work I decided to treat myself to a baked good from a local bakery. And although I was looking for a dessert I ended up buying muffins too since they were buy one get one free. After work I ate half of the carrot muffin (pictured in the middle). It was deliciously moist on the inside with a golden, crispy top. Yum! Dessert that night was half of the chocolate raspberry decadence cake. It sure was decadent, so I was happy to save more for another night.

But before I ate dessert I had a wonderful dinner of kale, green lentils, mushrooms and onions sautéed in coconut oil and fresh lemon juice. I drizzled some stone ground mustard on top before serving and it was delicious! I also had a few frozen cherries and a square of dark chocolate to cleanse the palate, but they didn’t make it into the picture. Hope you all have a fabulous Wednesday and rest of your week!

Thank you to Jenn again for hosting this get together!

TGIW,

    Yummy that dinner looks amazing. I should make something like that as I’m always looking for healthy, vegetarian and filling meals.
    Congrats on your first day – hope it went well! Glad to see you came prepared with lunch and snacks.

      Thanks Melissa! First day went well and I was glad I was prepared with food :) Now that I’m settling in I’ll have to start keeping a stash of snacks in my desk! And dinner was super simple, quick (since I had precooked a huge batch of lentils on the weekend), and tasty! I would definitely give it a try!

      That was the second batch I tried making and they really held together nicely that time! They are also quite tasty too! Basically just a bunch of oats, seeds, dried fruit, nut butter, cinnamon and honey to hold it all together. Super easy to make!
