Breakfast Wednesday was a bowl of oatmeal with about 2 teaspoons of brown sugar stirred in. I wish I could enjoy oatmeal without adding sugar, but it's just not the same!
On my way to work I stopped at Quick Trip for a pumpkin coffee. It's the best $1.28 I'll spend many times this Fall. It's technically pumpkin cappuccino with a bazillion grams of sugar. For me, it's WAY too sweet on it's own. So, I usually fill my cup 1/3 to 1/2 of the way with pumpkin cappuccino and then fill the rest with coffee. Makes it healthier, and in my opinion, much better tasting.
For a morning snack I ate some red grapes. Lunch was pumpkin ravioli with red pasta sauce. I'm eating it twice a week, sometimes three times. It's just so yummy!
Afternoon snack was some pumpkin salsa with sweet potato chips.
Dinner was a much deserved glass of wine. (I had a gym full of crazy middle school girls all day. I remember there being 20 or 30 in my classes back in the day. I had 52...with no whistle. I whispered, "Dear Jesus, please help no fights to break out!" several times. No fights and I survived!) Anyway, to the food...I had a salad with mighty mini's and then grilled mighty mini's with squash, baked risotto and roasted cauliflower.
This is going to be my last WIAW post for a bit. With pumpkin season here and then Christmas coming there's just too much I want to post to waste time with what I ate. Besides, if you haven't noticed I tend to find things I like and then I make them over and over again. If I make something new, I always blog about it anyway. So, that's it on the WIAW for now. I still think it's a GREAT thing to do on your own to monitor what you eat and hold yourself accountable, but for now, let's focus on Fall and pumpkin recipes! Can I get an AMEN?!
