WIAW: School Lunches

Hi Friends!

Time for another edition of WIAW!

As you guys know, last week I started orientation for my internship. That means I had to start packing my lunch again! Ugh. I’ve been spoiled for the past few months and was able to eat at home so it’s definitely taken a few days to re-adjust to packing up everything I want to eat for the day. But I’m getting back in the groove! Here are some of the things I’ve packed for lunch the past few days!

A giant burrito salad

Leftover Lentil Veggie Curry

Yogurt Bowls

Chips & Salsa
Yogurt Bowl
Hummus & Carrots

Beans & Rice w/ leftover salsa
Yogurt Bowl
Red Pepper strips

Please remember the above pictures don’t necessarily
represent everything I packed!

So, besides lunch, what else have I been eating?

Sweet Potato Chips
BBQ Shrimp Tacos
Scrambled Eggs w/ tomatoes & avocado
Lentil Veggie Curry
Homemade Trailmix
PB toast w/ fruit
Loaded Sweet Potato

 Lots and lots of coffee
Sweet Potato Puffs
Peach Ice Cream from Graeter’s

We had all of my fellow interns over on Sunday!
I made:
Pretzel bites
Veggie Rollups
Spicy Feta Dip
Sweet Potato & Red Pepper Hummus
Corn & Black Bean Salsa

Plus everyone else brought something,
so we definitely had lots of good eats!

And finally…this was dinner Saturday night:

 Cereal & Beer.
It happens :)

What’s the best thing you ate this week?

  1. Funny you had cereal and beer, I had cereal and wine for dinner tonight :) Sometimes you just crave a bowl of cereal! I love it! Love and Shine CourtStar

  2. Burrito salad, yogurt bowls, and lentil curry? Wow, I just ate and now I’m hungry again. Your eats look awesome!

    The best thing I’ve had all week is a thick protein smoothie with frozen banana, unsweetened cocoa powder, and peanut butter. But now I want some scrambled eggs with toast and avocado!

  3. Ah, the classic beer and cereal. The first time I snuck a beer, I drank it with Cheerios. I was 13, but I could spot a fine pairing a mile away. 😉

  8. Haha, that Saturday night dinner cracks me up. I can’t say I’ve ever paired the two.

    That lentil lunch looks great. I find one-dish curry-type meals make for excellent leftovers, allowing the flavors to meld even more over night.

  9. You so classy! Hey, at least you put in some effort and poured the beer into a glass! 😉

    I am totally drooling over your giant photo collage! I’ve gotten behind on my Instagram stalking so I missed out on most of these! And sweet potato puffs? Say what?! Checking THOSE out now!

    Best thing I’ve eaten so far this week: hands down, my Orange Creamsicle Protein Pancakes!

  11. Cereal and beer? Now that’s a first for me! I could see cereal, then beer. But I just can’t imagine the two of them together! Too funny!

  12. Packed lunches look great! I always struggle with finding things to pack that I know I’ll want later in the day! You’ve got some really great ideas!

  14. Too funny about the cereal and beer… For a second I didn’t see the glass in the picture and thought, “Did she pour the beer on her cereal?!” Haha. THAT would be interesting :)

  15. I think that a cereal & beer dinner is totally fine 😉
