WIAW: Sweet and Salty

Well I was all set to write out a nice post to contribute to WIAW (What I Ate Wednesday) hosted by Jenn over at Peas and Crayons, but guess what? My body was needing some extra sleep this morning and I gave it what it wanted. Therefore, I don’t have any much time to blog this morning, so here is a quick version of WIAW (actually a combination of eats from Monday AND Tuesday)!

First, what is WIAW?

According to Jenn…

“—What WIAW isn’t about—-
Comparison – Judgement – Restriction – Guilt
—-What WIAW is about—-
Celebrating one of the glorious things we all have in common: We all eat!
WIAW is about food and fun! It’s about making new friends, breaking out of a food rut, noting changes in your diet/lifestyle, inspiring yourself & others, embracing fruit & vegetables, nourishing your body with the foods that work for you, finding new ways to eat your favorite foods, and so. much. more.
Celebrate Food.  Celebrate blogging.  Celebrate Individuality.”


I also want to mention that I absolutely did not photograph everything I ate! Here’s what I have got for ya!

Berries with brown rice puffs and almond milk.

Spoonfuls of this stuff…

My amazing dinner I shared with you yesterday: quinoa with sautéed veggies and hummus!

And I will not lie to you, I consumed a lot of this stuff over the past couple of days. Trail mix is my weakness! The sweet and salty combo gets me every time. So darn delicious!

Thanks Jenn for hosting WIAW! Happy Hump Day!

  1. Yeah for Caribou with your Mom. Love it!! And I totally ate some spoonfuls of cookie butter last night for an after dinner treat to try to tame my sweet tooth!

      I am reminded why I don’t buy that kind of peanut butter! Too darn good!

      I probably eat a little too much of it, but honestly, I love it!

  2. Mmmm…everything looks delish! The sweet and salty combo is the best, so I can totally see why you’re addicted to trail mix. Oh, I’ve got to try that coconut/PB spread. It looks awesome!
