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…

WIAW #41

Back to normal after Florida, and that means a fresh focus on cooking after the holidays and hustle and bustle that marked the start of 2016 for me. This WIAW is all about what I’ve been doing in the kitchen. Starting with breakfast, which included some homemade Grain Free Banana Bread Blondies, stuffed into the remainder of a jar of crunchy peanut butter and taken to work as a sweet treat to start the day. I ate an apple to follow all that peanut buttery banana goodness, and had some decaf coffee alongside.

WIAW #32

For those of you who follow me on Instagram, you saw my little dessert for breakfast morning on Friday. Well, that actually happened the day before, too…and the day after. My Grain Free Pumpkin PoufflĂ© is just so tasty and easy to slice up for a short and sweet meal if I want to have the luxury of eating at home before I head to work. Of course, as I mentioned, that little luxury was sort of accidental on Friday, but I’ll take what I can get. Now, on to the rest of this WIAW!

WIAW #28: Sweet Potatoes to Spaghetti Squash

Happy Wednesday! As usual, I’m sharing a day of eats with you all, although this is a snapshot of last Friday rather than the usual Tuesday, since my first week of work has been all about orientation with no time for food photography – yet! I’m still eating a bit differently to figure out what’s disagreeing with my tummy, as I was last week, mostly free from (cow’s) dairy and grains. Which doesn’t mean I can’t still eat delicious meals, like this simple but tasty breakfast of a turkey and spinach omelet with a baked sweet potato.

Fall Foliage and Pumpkin Picking

Happy Monday! Today marks the beginning of the end…of my endless summer of traveling, running, baking, eating, blogging, and general do-what-I-want days and merriment. This time next week, I will be starting my new “big girl” job at a law firm in New York City. But I’m making the most of this time, and I spent the weekend baking autumn goodies, admiring the fall foliage and pumpkin picking at one of the local pumpkin patches in my Connecticut town
