What I Ate Wednesday: Brown Rice and Brussels Sprouts

WIAW_thumb[2]

So clearly this is not an original thought WIAW was originated from Peas and Crayons  and a lot of other bloggers have started doing it as well; and since I can’t be original and I really like the idea of doing this… I decided to give it whirl as well. This will pretty much be a mish-mash of stuff,  some days I will try a new technique or perhaps I’ll be eating something for the first time as is the case today… and someday it might be leftover chili…who knows, and I guess that’s part of the fun. When I first started blogging it was to remain accountable with my exercise and food intake, so this is kind of takes me back… Very little of this is planned… but it’s 100% honest…I always want WIAW to be an accurate account of what I am eating. Not everyday I eat completely healthy, but more often than not I make healthy choices.

So I’m thinking about getting Blue Apron, I’ve been hearing a lot of people talk about it and I think it would be a good way for me to introduce new foods (and recipes) into my life; I was thinking that maybe I would start with maybe 1 or 2 a month and work from there, and add if I like it. If any of you have had experience using that service please let me know.. I would like to know about the variety of food, ease of service… etc.,

I was feeling a wee bit nostalgic this morning, since children are back to school I want to make something that my mom would make up on crisp fall days (doesn’t apply yet… still warm in my neck of the woods) before she sent us off to school Oatmeal, Tea and Toast (Just recently my mother and I had a conversation about why would you serve toast with oatmeal… and she said, that’s what we ate growing up, and that’s what I fed my kids…)

So this morning I did my own version of my mother’s breakfast… Blueberry Oatmeal along with Blueberry Pomegranate White Tea with a tiny bit of Agave nectar to sweeten it up. I love meal, it really is one of those meals that you can eat and feel full for a really long time.

You ever have one of those mornings where not matter what you decide to wake up it’s still way too early… today was just one of those days. I think subconsciously I knew /I had a ton of crap to do and just didn’t want to face the day. Since I was still smarting off from the fact that my cat woke me up (damn her and her hunger!!) and I wasn’t rally that hungry I just had a yogurt.

You ever have a craving that only bacon can cure? I know you do, because you’re my people… and for the record I’m not talking about turkey bacon (although I do it eat, but the enjoyment level is not the same) I generally don’t buy or eat bacon, but I saw it  at the grocery store and it was calling my name out from the refrigerated shelf… plus it was maple… MAPLE BACON… I had to eat buy it. So I made a poor man’s BLT… which is just Bacon…

I grabbed a  Flatout out a tiny dollop of mayo and ate that sucker like a taco…yummm!
