WIAW: So many food pics


Thanks a bunch Jenn! You rock!

I am typing this on Tuesday because today (Wednesday if I post this on time), I start my first day at my job! With that and youth group, I won't have time to type it up. 

I am nervous and excited at the same time - there is so much to learn and training barely scraped the surface. But I'm basically going to be making coffee drinks, bringing the food to customers, filling drinks, and scooping ice cream. Yeeaahh man. #summerjobstatus

Anyways, I am super super exhausted. In fact, yesterday I took two naps and I just woke up from a two hour nap (and the weirdest dream EVER). Still tired. UGH. Although I'm waayyy more energetic, I'm still struggling with occasional afternoon slumps/crashes. What the heck?! 

I blame staying up too late watching Mad Men on Netflix (please tell me someone else watches this show - please!! PLEASE?!?), finals, my metabolism kicking up, and next week I have Driver's Ed (finally thank Jesus) plus work. Whew! 

BUT never fear, I took lots of food pics this week. Like lots. I haven't been posting them on Instagram as much (I've been attempting to Insta-fast), but they're definitely still on my phone. 

Okay, I'll stop my babbling and get to the food good stuff:


I had an oats craving alllll week. Most weeks, I'll throw in a different breakfast or two, but this week was all about the oats. 

Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal with peanut butter and coffee

Overnight oats in a Sunbutter container! Maybe 2-ish tbsps left at the bottom/on the sides.


Crockpot oatmeal that I had frozen/microwaved - it worked beautifully! Stirred in cinnamon and chia seeds, and topped with a nectarine, blueberries, and peanut butter.


Moe's with the sis! Underneath all that lettuce+guac is black beans, rice, and more veggies.

Brown rice, chicken sausage, broccoli, almonds (strange but good combo). Plus some kombucha. 

Turkey+veggie wrap, carrots, almonds, and an apple+cinnamon sprinkles.


Dinner is normally my least favorite meal, but I had some pretty awesome eats this week!!

Roasted zucchini, red bell pepper, onions, sweet potatoes, and a chicken sausage

Whole wheat pasta with marinara sauce+red peppers, topped with sauteed shrimp, and a side salad

1/2 of a margarita pizza from Whole Foods, plus a side salad, plus a Diet Pepsi.

Memorial Day dinner - grilled chicken sliders, baked beans, salad, plus corn on the cob and cataloupe


Cantaloupe and a Chocolate Chip Brownie Larabar

Post 85 degree walk - PB&J smoothie (strawbs+almond milk+peanut butter) topped with granola crunchies

My new fave: banana slices, melty almond butter, and dark chocolate (the last of my stash!! Wah.)

Ugly pic, but delicious: a warm vegan banana muffin that I crumbled and topped with 1/2 a banana (sliced), and melty PB Co. White Chocolate Wonderful. So. Good.

There you have it! I've had a fantastic week of eats if I do say so myself. It's the oatmeal and nut butters.

Hope you all have a WONDERFUL Wednesday!!!!!


  1. Your plates are so colorful, I love it!! :)

    Good luck at the new job! I'm sure it will be fun and rewarding :) tiring too though- I didn't realize how just being on my feet for 4-6 hours would wear me out!

    1. Thank you! It's fun and busy - I like it a lot! And agreed, my feet/knees are pretty much killing me at the moment, but I'll get used to it!

      Have a wonderful day, love!

  2. So awesome that you have a summer job! I would get a job if my mom didn't already book vacations. oh well. heh.
    Overnight oats in a sunbutter jar=perfection. All your other eats look absolutely fantastic! I could go for a good…5 hour nap right now.

    1. We don't vacation in the summer!! Lucky you!!

      And do it, girl. Naps are necessary sometimes.

      Have an awesome day!

  3. Ha, I'm in the middle of watching Mad Men on Netflix! Just started Season 3. I wanted to catch up before the last season but the way I'm flying through it I'm probably going to end up finishing way early then forgetting everything that happened before the final season starts :P

    1. Yay, a fellow Mad Men-watcher! I'm almost through season 1, and trying to pace myself. :)

      Have a wonderful day!

  4. yum,yum,yum,yum,yum. foooood <3 ooiaj are my FAVORITE. Mine look the same as yours :) ps I love that filter of the oats + nectarine!

    1. Overnight oats are the bomb diggity. And thanks, girl! It's VSCO Cam on iPhone. I love it!
