WIAW #52: Workday Eats

This week’s WIAW is all about what I eat on a typical workday. After showcasing a half marathon weekend of eats, and one relaxing at my childhood home in Connecticut, I figured it was time to show you what happens most days of the week. It can’t be all amazing diner brunches and ice cream twice a day (although that’s necessary when it happens). Most days, it’s packed lunches and easy to prep dinners, although I always leave room for some sweet treats too…

WHAT-I-ATE-WEDNESDAY-NEW-BUTTON-PEAS-AND-CRAYONS

 

Welcome to another WIAW. This round of What I Ate Wednesday is actually of a Wednesday, which I am not sure I’ve ever done before! I snapped photos of my eats from last Wednesday to share with all of you. The bar is getting closer, and my eats are getting pretty samesies, but they’re still delicious, nutritious, and good for body and soul! Breakfast was a gluten free waffle-wich, sweetened up with some honey roasted turkey breast, apple slices, sharp Cheddar, and a touch of maple syrup between two Van’s apple cinnamon waffles. Absolutely delicious with my usual decaf iced coffee.

WIAW #5: Some Serious Salmon

WHAT-I-ATE-WEDNESDAY-NEW-BUTTON-PEAS-AND-CRAYONS

 

Welcome to another WIAW, with Jenn at Peas and Crayons! Below are my eats from Monday, when I ate salmon at three meals without any intentional planning (I also had a bunch of smoked salmon left over from the weekend). I do love salmon, so it isn’t a surprise. And it comes in so many delicious forms. This day featured smoked salmon at breakfast and lunch and a filet of fresh salmon at dinner, but might just as easily have included a salmon burger or sushi. I try to think about sustainability since I prefer wild-caught salmon, but hopefully I’m doing okay!

 

Breakfast: One of my smoked salmon scrambles stuffed into a gluten-free wrap, with cucumber slices on the side. I paired this with a cup of berries for a filling morning meal. I also snacked on two slices of Muenster cheese while I was making the scramble.

Morning snack: I grabbed two of my apple cinnamuffins and a smear of cream cheese to take to school, and munched on them around 11am while in class. I usually go for Greek yogurt or peanut butter on my muffins in a hurry, but the cream cheese paired nicely as well, especially with the cinnamon flavor. Kind of like cheesecake frosting!

The only thing that would have made it even more delicious was a dab of jam, because I love that combination – sadly, I did not have the means to cart a jar around in my purse, though I had picked up a jar of the Blueberry Jam at Le Pain when I was there for brunch last weekend.
