WIAW – the real thing

Hello everyone ! How is your week going ? I actually remember to take pictures of my food at each meal Wednesday, so I thought I would do a WIAW post. Thanks to Peas and Crayons for letting me jump on the bandwagon.



Yesterday was what I would call “the real thing”…. totally transparent. Firstly, I got up REALLY early. This guy woke me up at 5 a.m. and so around 6, I got up, wide awake. In this picture he is cute. I didn’t think so at 5 a.m….

So, I figured if I had some time, I might as well make a batch of pancakes, as my stash was getting low. I have two favorite go to resources for pancakes. Peanut Butter Fingers has an almond based recipe I love, as does Tina at Carrots n Cake. So I made a big batch.

I had a busy work day, very little time to make it to the cafeteria, so I got a salad and had some yogurt for dessert. My salad had beets, carrots, lentils, tomatoes, lettuce, cukes + tuna and egg for protein.

A quick snack in the afternoon….

…and I got home really late from work. I was starving. I probably should have eaten a bigger lunch or more almonds. My husband did the cooking. We love TopChef and he was inspired :

But he was inspired only by the presentation because the chicken came out of a bag, and that is a piece of chocolate crunch, turned over. He did make carrots…. Not my choice of dinner but beggars can not be choosers. So I actually ate several pieces of chicken, carrots and several pieces of chocolate ! I didn’t want to complain that it wasn’t “healthy” enough… he had make the effort to put together dinner, and made us laugh in the process with his presentation. And he is a great cook, but not very motivated during the week.

Have a good Friday everyone !

    Your eats look super healthy! I would love it if my husband cooked me dinner but he’s never home to do it so I always have to throw something together!

    Haha, I love how you say he was only inspired, that the chicken came out of the bag. Hey, at least he put the effort in-looks pretty!
