WIAW #34: Thanksgiving Leftovers

I’ve been looking forward to this WIAW for several days, because it’s a chance to show some creativity with Thanksgiving leftovers. On Friday, also known as “the morning after” the big feast, I kicked things off with a double dose of leftover dessert. A slice each of grain free Pumpkin Pouffle and Pumpkin Apple Spice Loaf. One topped with peanut butter, both dotted with chocolate chips. I figured the time to start my lower sugar attempt was not the same time I cut out most grains. One step at a time!

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.
