WIAW: A Little Sweet, a Little Savory

Hey hey my peoples! Hope you are all having a great week so far! Only two more days till the weekend…so you know what that means!

Time for another What I Ate Wednesday!

Breakfast (7:00am)
Ashley’s French Toast Oats
topped with
cocoa almonds, dried cherries, and carob chips
(and a mug of un-pictured 1/2 caf coffee with cinnamon)

I was really excited to try Ashley’s newest oat creation. I didn’t have any bananas or maple syrup but it was still perfectly delicious. The addition of a whole egg during cooking makes for some SUPER creamy oats (I used all Irish oats and looks at how smooth and creamy it came out!)

Lunch (12:30pm)
Salad “trough” topped with a TJ’s veggie burg, hummus mixed with
balsamic vinegar, and nooch

Snack (4:30pm)
Plain Low-fat Stonyfield yogurt topped with a Lundberg brown rice cake,
cinnamon and chia seeds

Dinner (8:00pm)
1/2 cup oats cooked in water topped with nooch, Mrs. Dash crack, steamed
broccoli, yellow peppers, 1/3 avocado, and mild salsa

I promise there are oats under there!

This was one of the first savory oats combos that I’ve made without topping with a fried egg. I just LOVE the flavor/texture of a runny yolk mixed into creamy oats, but I didn’t even miss it in this bowl! The combo was absolutely perfect and satisfied my raging veggie craving!

And of course my day included appearances by…

and lots of water!Β Including tea, I drank about 80 ounces of water! Pretty darn good for a girl who frequently forgets to drink more than 1 cup! πŸ˜‰

What’s the best thing you ate today?

Is it hard for you to remember to drink more water?

    Yes! I always forget to drink enough water! The only time I really think about it is when I’m at the gym.

  2. Sarah Banks says:

    wow, your breakfast looks AMAZING. I love the colors on top of the fact that its NAME makes it sound AMAZING! I am going to have to try that ASAP!

    I love how cute those vitamin gummies are.. what are they?

    • The square ones on the bottom are calcium supplements and the round ones are adult multis. Both are the Up & Up brand from Target…about $9-10 a bottle. The calcium chews taste JUST like little gummy Lifesaver Creamsavers!

  3. mmm – yum! all of this looks great, I want those oats!!

    I’m taking a new supplement, and it makes me REALLY thirsty! Jason commented – that’s why it is effective, all it’s really doing is making you drink more and THAT is making you feel better! ha! probably true… πŸ˜‰

    I love that you have gummi vitamins – I do too! (do I say this EVERY Wednesday?)

    XO!

    • Haha! Sounds like it! And yes, having gummi vitamins is the only way I will remember to take them everyday! It’s like I get to eat dessert after breakfast! πŸ˜‰

  4. Ashley says:

    Oh man…your eats look deeelicious!!! So glad you liked the French toast oats!! I will be dreaming about them tonight. πŸ™‚

  5. kbwood says:

    LOVE the WIAW posts!! your snack looks aweeesome
    best thing i ate today: oats w. caramelized carrots!!
    now i am in the habit of drinking TONS OF water!

  6. Emilia says:

    Yum and foodgasmic…. you know I love each and every one of your meals, I’m not even going to go into that πŸ™‚
    I need to try mixing an egg into my oatmeal– i guess I’m just scared i’ll taste the egg in the oats. Some day i’ll try it– someday πŸ™‚ And oats for dinner? You know I love that– you just know it πŸ™‚ I bet it would’ve been tastier with hummus atop!
    Have eve, friend!

    • Oh that does sound good! I’ll have to remember to add hummus next time! Try the egg in the oats! I PROMISE you can’t taste the egg! I couldn’t even see the egg white in it either!

  7. ahh your breakki looks AMAZING!! two oats in one day? thats what im talkin bout!! noooi drink SO MUCH WATEr as is! im always thirsty

  8. Those oats look amazzzing. And I love yogi tea! Reading the tags makes my day…I wish my favorite Celestial Blueberry tea had little words of wisdom!
    It’s hard for me not to drink a lot of water! I’m not sure if now it has to do with habit more than it has to do with being thirsty? I drink a lot of tea, especially in winter, too.

    • Oh I love the tags! I think of them as my little fortune teas! I like the CS teas (especially the blueberry which I totally think tastes like Pez), but I prefer the individually wrapped bags when take them to work just for convenience. It’s funny, I used to hate herbal tea and now I can’t go a day without it!

  9. Lee says:

    It’s easy for me to drink water at work because I have a water bottle on my desk at all times. At home, not so much.

  10. BrittFit says:

    Im currently eating a mocha dark chocolate nugo bar…..its pretty amazing…but that breakfast…LOOKS DELISH πŸ™‚ and obviously I’m loving your colorful salad

  11. I’m actually pretty good at drink water. I bring my 32 ounce bottle to work and refill it when I get home!

    Those french toast oats sound delicious!

  12. Waaa! Those oats! Sooooooooo decadent and oozing with wonderfulness! Geez they look amazing.

    I like your daily appearances. And good job on the water drinking! Damn! If you’re not used to drinking a lot of water, it’s not that easy. πŸ™‚

  13. Donna says:

    Those french toast Oats look AMAZING! and now you have me seriously craving broccoli πŸ™‚

  14. Sometimes. If I have my water bottle with me, I have no trouble, but if I forget it…..not good. But I’m pretty good at remembering. πŸ˜›

  15. Jenny says:

    I love that french toast! How’s the egg in the oats? Apparently Ashley says it’s pretty filling. Looks delicious. So many WIAW awesome eats, I want them all. Best thing I eat everyday is oats lol And I definitely need to drink more water, I do kinda forget if I’m not eating 😦

    • The egg made the oats SUPER creamy! I didn’t even add the banana and maple syrup like her recipe calls for because I was all out but it was still delicious and kept me full for about 4 hours. I think next time to get the whole “French toast” flavor, I’ll try it with the nanner and syrup.

  16. Love your vitamin stack. πŸ™‚

    Your herbal tea totally counts as water intake in my opinion, and I love runny eggs atop oats. So good especially with fresh chopped basil, goat cheese, and wing sauce…and now I’m hungry.

    I want carob chips.

  18. I have had zero ounces of water today… sometimes I forget, but for some reason lately the idea of water just sounds awful! Is that weird?!

    • Not weird at al, I have the SAME issue sometimes! I also go through phases where I will only drink my water if it is SUPER cold or then I’ll only want it at room temp! On days where it seems like I have to force myself to drink it period, I usually rely on my stock of herbal tea!
