WIAW: 6/20/12


It’s Wednesday which means it is time to link up at Peas and Crayons for

wiaw sensible snacking button

I normally post my WIAW during the late afternoon on Wednesday. But I tend to work later on Wednesdays, then only have an hour to come home, change clothes, cook dinner, and then head to church, which loves a tiny window for blogging.  And as last week shows, I am highly unlikely to post during such a small window.  Therefore, I have decided to post my WIAW’s on Wednesday morning. This means that what you technically see is what I ate on Tuesday – but that can be our little secret, okay?


Breakfast:  Protein Pancakes ala Tina at Carrots N Cake.

WIAW 6-20-12 Lunch

Lunch:  A huge salad with romaine lettuce, spinach, bell peppers, banana peppers, cucumbers, tomatoes, red onion, ham, turkey breast and avocado and hummus for dressing.


Dinner:  My Aunt (Mom’s sister) is visiting from out of town and wanted to try a new local pizza place.  I ordered a small veggie pizza with whole wheat crust. It was define. The crust had a nutty undertone, the veggies had a bit of crunch to them, and there was more sauce that cheese which is how I like my pizza.


Since these month’s theme is Sensible Snacking, I thought I would share a few of my favorite snacks.  As the temperatures rise higher and higher (is was nearly 100 yesterday) I find myself craving things that are cool, crunchy and creamy.  So I am snacking on

  1. Carrots and Red Peppers Hummus
  2. Greek Yogurt (I put it in the freezer for a few minutes to create a faux ice cream feel)
  3. Green Smoothies (Loving a strawberry, banana, chocoloate protein powder combo)
  4. Dark chocolate almonds with a small glass of chocolate milk (as a good way to refuel)

Things to talk about:  What are you eating this Wednesday?  Do your snacking preferences change based on the season?


  1. Dark chocolate almonds are delicious, great choice for a snack <3 Happy WIAW to you! :)

  2. Mmmm...that is my favorite protein pancake recipe ever! I make it all the time!

  3. I love Dark Chocolate Almonds - I am not a big Chocolate person and the chocolate flavor is so subtle, it works perfect for me!!
