What I Ate

OK, so after more than a week of straying from my usual “what I ate” blogging style I am back!  Keeping a photo log of my daily eats really does help keep things on track.  Can’t have a lot of balance if all that’s being documented is the carby goodness! Sharing only decadent ooey gooey recipes with you isn’t showing the whole picture!

After a free-for-all, eat-it-all weekend it was time to get back to normal.



A new to me Silver Hills bread…Marvelous Multi.


Chewy sprouted grain deliciousness with crunchy PB and Supercrack.


BC grown nectarine.  I’ve been loving the pitted fruits lately (even if I do have to ripen them up for a day or two in a brown bag!).


Cheesy Pasta leftover goodness for lunch.  Reheated in the oven…giving it a crispy cheesy crust.  Oh my lordy!


PB & J Larabar to tide me over through Group Training.  It’s been a long time since I had a PB & J!

IMG_9880Tonight was our final group training session. Sad smile After discussing how we all had sore calves for three days after those stairs we tackled upper body and abs.  I suspect my core will hate me tomorrow.  Hurts so good, right?

This pear has been hanging out in the produce drawer for about a week now.  Before it grows legs I decided to put it to use in a way-fun salad!


What goes with a pear?  Cheeeeese!  But this time I opted for stinky cheese. Gorgonzola to be exact.


Originally planned to be mixed with arugula but sadly the unopened package went bad over the long weekend.  Bummer.  A quick trip to the store brought me home with a red leaf lettuce instead.  Mixed with snipped green onions and one of my favourite greens…sunflower sprouts!


Tossed with simple Honey Balsamic Dressing:

  • 1 part balsamic vinegar
  • 1 part honey
  • sprinkle coarse salt
  • sprinkle ground pepper
  • 2-3 parts olive oil

All together now!  Pear and Gorgonzola Salad.


Sprinkled with pecans…


The grand struggle is still the evening snacking.  I’m trying to wait as long as possible for dessert… dates stuffed with light Laughing Cow cheese…


But since I’m up quite late watching Friday Night Lights marathons I go for midnight cereal snacks too.  SmileKashi is my bedtime friend.

Your salad looks so good. I've been craving arugula like nobody's business, so sad yours went bad over the weekend.

That leftover mac and cheese looks so delicious... WOW. I haven't had homemade (besides Kraft Dinner or Annie's) in years and now I must. So comforting with the cold weather.
