Our First WIAW

This past weekend, Ashley, Matt, and I decided to do a New Recipe Night.  So...we figured why not go for it and jump in to Jen's awesome What I Ate Wednesday Party over at Peas and Crayons!

Amy's Breakfast
7:45 am

On weekends (we logged our meals from Sunday), I like to take my time with breakfast.  So, I made some Brown Rice Porridge from a recipe I found on Newest Obsession.  The recipe is actually for Cherry Vanilla Brown Rice Porridge, but I replaced the cherries with mixed berries, since it's what I had, and I replaced the protein powder with PB (yum!).  It was a fun switch from oatmeal!  Of course, iced coffee followed.

Ashley's Breakfast
8:00 am

The breakfast I'd vote the "BESTfast" lately is Multi-Grain Cheerios!! Just plain, no milk, Yes I know thats weird and even my husband says i'm weird.

Ashley's Lunch
11:30 am

I totally forgot to take a picture of the finished product but I had some rice for lunch.

Amy's Lunch
12:15 pm


 I am all about egg sandwiches lately, so this one is made up of egg, ham, and spinach (there's my green, if you can see it!) on whole wheat bread.  On the side I had some butternut squash (bought a huge package of it at Costco) with cinnamon and a little maple syrup.  When I was finished, I was still a little hungry, so I dipped into the quinoa bread (found on Clean Eating Chelsey's awesome blog) I made for later with a little pumpkin butter.

 Amy's Snack
2:30 pm

I didn't want to be too hungry before heading over to Ashley and Matt's for Selection Sunday, so I went for my gigantic bag of pears (I rocked my Costco trip) and a rice cake.  Before the show, we had some edamame, but forgot to take a picture (we WOULD miss the picture of the green!).  Had to toss my cutting board in there, because it's just too cute!

Ashley's Snack
2:30 pm

 My first time trying this snack mix, and I give it two thumbs up!

5:30 pm

 It was Matt's turn to pick for New Recipe Night, and he went with White Chicken Chili.  Ashley and I decided on this recipe that we found on Sweet Treats & More.  It was delish!  I have been loving the leftovers!

Amy's Dessert
8:00 pm
I have a slight addiction to sweets before bed, so I went the healthy route and made a green smoothie with spinach, mango, coconut milk, and banana topped with some Multi-Grain Cheerios...good stuff!
