What We Ate Wednesday

20 Feb

Lauren Conrad once said, if someone asks you what they should get you for a birthday or holiday you should tell them one of three things:
1. Something you can eat.
2. Something you can burn.
3. Something you can drink.

We’ve decided that there is a fourth thing added to that list.
4. Cans of Libby’s pumpkin purée

We are officially obsessed. It just tastes SO good. Today we’re linking up with Peas and Crayons once again to share with you what we ate and of course there is pumpkin included!

Breakfast this morning was banana whipped oats with pumpkin and cottage cheese mixed in and topped with homemade sun butter, Nature’s Path pumpkin flax granola, and shredded unsweetened coconut. Look how huge the pumpkin makes this bowl of oatmeal! (The secret is mixing in a 1/2 cup of pumpkin purée.)


After classes, we spent the rest of the morning running around and doing schoolwork. We sipped on some hot green mango tea.

Lunch was a salad with mixed greens, cucumbers, carrots, peppers, grape tomatoes, cilantro hummus, blue cheese, tuna, and raw crackers. Paired with 1/2 cup Greek yogurt, cranberry sauce, and love crunch granola.

Around 3:30 we had an afternoon snack

An apple paired with cinnamon raisin swirl peanut butter! The perfect size snack to hold us over until dinner.

Ellie’s vegetable stew tossed with a cup of spinach and a serving of pasta! Quick, easy, and yummy! We never actually thought of putting soup over a serving of pasta until we read the back of the jar. Such a genius idea! Has anyone ever done this before?


Night snack was fiber one cereal topped with chai seeds, banana slices, and sliced almonds. Paired with chai tea.

We found out late last night who are bigs were!!!!! Best news all week.

Such a fun night filled with so many traditions! We will explain more later but we hope you have a fabulous Wednesday!
