Happy WIAW! Wednesdays are so much better when you get to spend hours looking at food pictures. Am I right?
Instead of prepping for this famous day, I spent yesterday soaking in my last day of work all day. I spent all summer working at a local coffee shop and loveeeeeedddd every second. While I’m thankful for the blessing of an education, I wouldn’t mind sticking around to serve coffee to the caffeine-deprived 🙂 So here, you get what I actually ate Wednesday.
I don’t what the deal is, but today has been snacks galore. If I showed you everything I’ve grabbed, you would think I had just fasted for 18 months. But no that’s not the case. Yes there’s so much guilt just waiting for me to pay attention to it, but I refuse to give into those thoughts. My whole plan to eat more and eat when I’m hungry, even if it’s really often, has been really difficult. BUT if I’m hungry, I’m hungry!
I took your flawless advice and used my oat bran to make muffins! This may have been the best idea all summer. These muffins are dense, but sweet, grainy, and bran-y. So, so good.Oat Bran Muffins
Adapted from Joy of Baking1 cup whole wheat flour
1 cup oat bran

Any add-ins you wantMix dry and wet separately. Pour wet into dry. Bake at 400 degrees for 16-20 minutes.
I really think I could eat cereal every meal of every day and not get 100% sick of it. Can you believe this teensy salad was $12.00?! I don’t mind spending that much on a meal here and there, but for a taco salad? Seriously? Since I won’t be able to afford dinner tonight, this was last night’s dinner. Iceberg lettuce (blech), tomatoes, queso fresco, refried beans, grilled chicken, and avocado smothered in gallons of salsa. Sorry for such a blah post. Hope you’re enjoying HUMP DAY and are eating like there’s no tomorrow 🙂Question: What’s one thing you could eat and never get sick of?
