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?! 


  1. Amen. I wish I worried about a blood sugar spike more. But there are too many fall treata to make right now. :-) would you use this applesauce for baking?

  2. Yep! I haven't yet, but I thought about it when I made it. I ate all mine before I had a chance to bake with it. :)


I'd love to hear your comments!
