WIAW #28: Short ‘n Not-So-Sweet

After a much needed rest day, I’m more than ready to get a good workout in today. But before I get to that, I’ve got another edition of What I Ate Wednesday to share with you.

What I Ate Wednesday Tuesday 1/20/15

8:30am – Bulletproof coffee

12:30pm – Leftover kale caesar salad with a fried egg on top and blackberries on the side.

3:00pm – I snacked on a couple of medjool dates with almond butter (looks gross, tastes delicious) while mopping the apartment. I don’t love dates on their own, but wrapped in bacon or topped with almond butter, they’re completely acceptable.

My favorite Whole Foods stores are the ones that have grind-your-own nut butter stations. The best option they have, in my opinion, is definitely the honey-peanut combo, but it never lasts more than a day in our house, so I went with pure almond butter this time around. Not the most aesthetically pleasing food in the world…

5:45pm – Carrots and more almond butter for a little pre-dinner snack.

7:45pm – Dinner was leftover homemade pizza with a big kale salad on the side. Cheers to our friends Nicole and Eli, who had us over for dinner Saturday night and served this kale salad. I liked it so much, I requested the recipe and couldn’t wait more than three days before recreating it.

This is the first WIAW post in a while to feature… NO SUGAR. Hallelujah.



Question: What’s your favorite type of nut butter? Mine is undoubtedly sunflower seed butter, but I’m having a bit of an almond butter moment right now.



Per usual, you can check out what others are eating this, and every, Wednesday on Peas & Crayons.

  1. I am tickled pink your friends made you my kale and brussels sprout salad. I have a ton of other kale salads on the site, and based on what I read in this post, you will probably adore them! Thanks for linking to me, and keep it green! (kale, that is.)
