Lately + WIAW

5 Jun

Good morning and happy Wednesday! Thanks to Jenn from Peas and Crayons for hosting another fabulous week of WIAW. We hope you’re all having a wonderful week so far. Our favorite thing about this week is definitely being able to enjoy breakfast and dinner outside. Here’s an update on what’s been happening with us in the past few days. FYI, theres are lots of yummy food pictures below. We take no responsibility if these pictures make you a little hungry…. 😉

Weekend

Overnight oats topped with freshly picked strawberries, Trader Joe’s peanut butter, and buckwheat groats!

Dinner

Pacific Natural Foods vegetable lentil and roasted red pepper soup. Whenever we buy boxed or canned soup we always make sure to read the ingredients label first. This one is pretty rocking and we topped it with buckwheat groats for an extra crunch.

Lunch
Yesterday we tried making Oh She Glows Super Power Chia Bread and it turned out awesome! We topped the bread with apricot preserves, mixed greens from our garden, and homemade beet burgers we threw together. We paired this combo with carrots and an orange.

Yesterday we also accidentally discovered that a Sweet Frog is coming soon near our house! That definitely made our day 100 times better! Whooooo.

Afternoon snacking. This months WIAW theme is sensible snacking. We were out and about and decided to pick up this snack from a nearby grocery store. Whenever you’re in a rut and need a quick healthy snack think about checking out a nearby grocery store. Usually grocery stores are a lot cheaper than gas stations with a lot more healthy options.

Check out this ingredients list! We may have just found our new favorite bottled juice.

We love Wednesdays simply because we get to eat, drink, take pictures of our food, and blog about our most recent eats. What’s your favorite day of the week?
