WIAW #11: simple meals

Happy Wednesday! A and I are heading to the beach tomorrow for a few days, so I am busy baking cookies (brown butter choc chip!) and prepping healthy goodies to take on our trip. If you are just popping in, be sure to check out:

- Lately: Long runs, hush puppies, and bikinis.
- My rough training week.
- Fourth of July fun!

Now, onto What I Ate Wednesday. Thank you dear Jenn at Peas & Crayons for hosting. Be sure to check out her blog to learn more about WIAW and link up to other bloggers :) Now, on with my eats!

Breakfast: Protein pancakes via the fitnessista. These pancakes contain protein powder, whole wheat flour, egg whites, and milk. I topped mine with banana and maple syrup with was so yummy. Having protein pancakes feels like a treat, but treats my body like a good meal. Sometimes I add in cocoa powder or peanut butter to the mix, which is also yummy.

Lunch: Post workout, I made a yummy salad with leftover whole wheat pasta salad, greens, cucumber, and bell pepper. I ate this with a juicy peach and a few pretzels.

Snack: After running a million errands to mail birthday gifts, pick up moving stuff, etc. I was starving. I grabbed these new pita crackers at TJ's and had them with almond butter and a greek yogurt.

Dinner: Quiche! A and I whipped up a whole wheat crust, filled the quiche with kale, mushrooms, and goat cheese, and served it with a simple salad and fresh pineapple. I love quiche as a filling but lighter meatless option. I am not sure I love kale as a filling though. It seemed a little strong to me, which is weird because I am OBSESSED with kale. Who knows, maybe I didn't cook it enough. Either way, it was yummy but not my best quiche.

Dessert: A ran to the store and came back with this amazing double chocolate cookie (I love a man who brings back treats). I drank some decaffeinated green tea with it and enjoyed it immensely. Yum.

What sweet thing do you like to end your meal with?



  1. What did you think of the TJ pita crackers? I basically live on their foods, however, I haven't tried those crackers.

    1. I live off TJs too- I think switching from WF to TJs cut my grocery bill in half.
      The crackers are yummy- def a welcomed change from my normal wheat crackers! You should try 'em :)
