What I Ate Wednesday! December 7th 2011!

Happy Wednesday! I know so many of you love the What I Ate Wednesday Party! I certainly do! This week eats are nothing too special.  I’ve really been trying to focus on eating healthy and cutting back on sweets before Christmas comes.  So let’s take a look…

Breakfast.

I’ve really been loving eating breakfast at home! I love having some “me” time before my day starts which is usually pretty busy.  This week I am still loving the Cranberry English muffins! I started topping them with some honey apple butter…yum! I also had a small bowl of Raisin Bran Crunch with Almond Milk.  That combination is so good, I really can’t get enough of it! A glass of orange juice on the side.  I still haven’t had coffee in weeks and am loving it! I’m all about herbal tea these days.

Morning Snack.

Since I eat breakfast at home now it’s a  little earlier than normal and I get hungry around mid morning.  I’ve been eating a banana and munching on blackberries or blueberries.  So good!

Blackberries and Banana!

Lunch. 

I’ve been sticking to my usual sandwich lately.  I really like them and they are quick and easy to pack for work.  This week I have turkey on oatmeal bread with American cheese, hummus, cucumbers and lettuce! Yum! On the side I packed some blue corn tortillas!

Afternoon Snack.

I always pack a snack but some days I’m not hungry and don’t eat it.  Most days I just eat the clementine.  I love clementines! I’m so happy they are in season now.  The TLC granola bars with chocolate, coconut and nuts are really good when I’m in the mood for a little afternoon sweetness!

Dinner.

With the cool weather coming I’m loving comfort foods.  One of my favorites is Chicken Pot Pie! Last year I bought a Groupon for Harrow’s Chicken Pot Pies.   I had never had Harrow’s but Mike assured me they are delicious and honestly everyone in the Boston area is crazy about the pies.  The Groupon bought quite a few pies and I still had some frozen.  Friday night I had the night to myself so it seemed like the perfect dinner.  On the side I had a salad with organic caeser dressing.  And of course a glass of wine!

That’s it for me this week!  I can’t wait to see what you all are eating!

What is your favorite brown bag sandwich? Do you eat mid- morning or mid-afternoon snacks?  What do you reach for?  What is your favorite comfort food?  Have you ever had Harrow’s?

    My favorite comfort food is anything Italian…but especially Mom’s meatballs and spaghetti with Italian bread on the side of course! It’s my favorite and I usually end up in a food coma. 🙂

    I’ve only tried the Kashi bars once but really liked the one I tried, and it fueled me through one of my best workouts in awhile! My favorite brown bag sandwich is what I ate every single day grades K-12, a peanut butter sandwich, no crusts, on white bread. I just have to go back to that. But nowadays I’d probably go for something like you have 🙂 oatmeal bread, yum!
