WIAW: Old Favorites

It’s WIAW again! My girl J$ throws such a good party that I just can’t help but keep coming back!

ย This week it’s all about old favs…so let’s get to it!


{Fun Fact: I CANNOT eat breakfast at home without something to read}

{Fun Fact: Our coffee pot has been broken for about 3 weeks}
{This little guy is my new best friend}


{Fun Fact: When I eat clementines, I try to get the whole peel off in one piece}


{Fun Fact: When I have other things to blog about, like SRC or Cookie Swaps, I don’t make anything exciting for dinner. We rotate through our favorite meals: loaded sweet potatoes, spicy vegetable curry, egg sandwiches….}
{I call this lunch “leftover MexIndian}

Pre-Work Snack:

{Fun Fact: First time trying these. They came in my Lollihop box. I liked the texture but they were a bit too salty for me so I only at a few. I think there are other flavors though!}

{Fun Fact: This is how I eat greek yogurt. Day 1: Scoop plain greek yogurt into a bowl, add 2 scoops flavored greek yogurt, top with granola, enjoy. Day 2: Scoop plain greek yogurt into a bowl, add 2 scoops flavored greek yogurt, top with granola, enjoy. Day 3: Add plain greek yogurt to the rest of the flavored yogurt in the container, top with granola, enjoy!}

{Fun Fact: I eat several tiny handfuls of M&Ms throughout the day instead of one big handful so I feel like I’m getting more!}

At work snack:

{Fun fact: I’m not sure I could make it through a shift without a few of these}

Post-work snack:

{Fun fact: I eat an apple pretty much every single day}

{Fun Fact: That’s a piece of a walnut cookie from The Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap!}

{Fun Fact: There’s nothing special about this…I just like raisins}


{Fun Fact: I HATE mushy green beans. I undercook mine so they’re nice and crunchy!}

{Fun Fact: Hubby suggested Morningstar black bean burgers for dinner which sounded perfect. I spent the next 10 minutes thinking about how good a fried egg would be on top of my burger but how I was too tired to make one. Then I opened the fridge and found an extra fried egg from an egg sandwich I had a few nights ago! Add some avocado, pepperjack cheese and tomato…and you’ve got the best sandwich I’ve eaten in weeks!}

Post workout snack:

{Fun Fact: Not a mistake. I eat a bowl of cereal almost every night before I go to bed}

So there you have it! Have you had anything good to eat this week?

One more thing, if you haven’t heard, I’m in the running to become a Love Grown Foods LOVE BLOGGER! If you would take a few second to vote for me by clicking here and “liking” my picture (second row, second from the left), i would REALLY appreciate it! THANK YOU!!!!


Today’s Workout:

This took me 1 hour and 5 minutes. I covered a mile in my very slow run/walk at the end. This workout was a bit long to do all the time. Iโ€™d say itโ€™d be good to do once a month or so to change things up but not every week. I was sweating by the end.

  1. I always have to read something when I’m eating my breakfast too!! ๐Ÿ˜€ or else I’d feel lost! HAHA Good luck with the Love Grown blogger thing! You got my vote :)

  2. I do the same thing when I eat a clementine! =) I love them!

  3. I love that mexindian!!! Great word too.

    Can I has egg sandwich too? That sounded so, so good.

    Happy WIAW!

  4. Wow I love how you did your pictures all old fashioned like- it makes everything look warm and wintery!
    I saw next to a girl in class yesterday who peeled her clementine in one go- I was impressed.
    So you eat the greek yogurt all in one go, or is it more like you eat a bit and then refill the toppings? You’re quite systematic about your eats!

    • thank you! i’ve found the flavored greek yogurt is too sweet for me, but the plain isn’t sweet enough so i try to eat mostly plain and then just add a couple scoops of flavored kind for sweetness. so i can make one little flavored container last for 3 days!

  5. Loved this! :)
    I eat an apple almost every day too! Sometimes even three ๐Ÿ˜€

  6. Clementines are wonderful and the MS Black bean burgers are my favorite! Good luck with Love Grown!

  7. That’s awesome that you’re studying to become an R.D. – me too! :)

    I just tried those Somersault snacks but in the cocoa flavour. They’re delicious and not salty at all!

  8. I love how you did your pictures here! It makes everything look all… hmm old-fashioned like Hannah said!
    I have been finding myself eating a few M&Ms throughout the day too! Just a small treat that adds some delight to the day :)

  9. I’ve been eating my weight in those sunmaid raisins recently – strangely addictive! As for best thing I’ve had to eat this week, I tried some dark belgian chocolate for the first time yesterday – incredible.

  10. I am clementine obsessed right now! My brother in law not only gets the peel off in one piece, but tries to keep the stem-nub thing connected too – very OCD. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  11. Hahaha loved this post. Fun facts indeed. I try to get the clementine peel off in one try too. My friends and I used to have competitions in middle school to see who could do it the best and quickest. So dorky. I know. Also, I have to always read something in the mornings when I eat, but usually I just get on my computer since I lack magazines.

  12. This post was such a cute idea! I lovee cereal :) I always read my phone (twitter, horoscope, blogs) while eating breakfast!

  13. we’ve busted out the coffee press these days too. No coffee maker here, but i love it. Oldie but goodie! right along with cereal of course.

  14. I do the same thing when I peel clementines, try and get the biggest piece of peel in one shot :)

  15. So many fun facts in here! Cereal before bed definitely works for me too.

  16. Oh I have GOT to try getting the peal off my clementine all in one peal! I bet that’s hard…but doable for sure.
    And here is my fun fact, I eat a piece of chocolate EVERY SINGLE night, right before bed. Yep, without fail.
    Another fun fact, I LOVE coffee presses! So while I’m sad for you and your broken coffee machine, I bet your coffee press coffee tastes amazing.
