What I Ate Wednesday

Good morning! How are you on this lovely Wednesday?!

I'm totally not following Jenn's October theme for this WIAW post, because I swear I'm still stuffed from all the great food I ate over this past weekend. It was the Canadian Thanksgiving weekend and I managed to score dinner invites on Sunday & Monday! Derek was away and I'm lucky enough to have an awesome family that didn't want me to feel left out, so I was included in absolutely everything {I loved it!!!} Great big traditional Thanksgiving dinners were served both nights and I stuffed myself to the max. The company was lively, the wine was flowing and the food was absolutely fantastic!

I was so uncomfortable by the time I got home each night that I could barely sit still. You'd assume I'd learn the first time, but no, not this gal....I had to go and do it again the very next night!!

Needless to say, my body was kinda confused yesterday. I woke up and couldn't decide if my stretched out belly was starving for more food or if I still felt ill from over-eating. 

I decided to play it safe with a really light breakie.  

 mixed fruit, cottage cheese & coffee

Lunch was pretty light and healthy too.

salad plate: cottage cheese (again!), bean salad and some leftover healthy autumn salad

I was planning to only allow myself an apple as a snack, but I caved to some co-worker pressure and had a rice krispie square as well!

Dinner was pretty light too.

roasted veggies with rice

I couldn't find room for even a tea the past couple of nights and I was dying for a chammomile vanilla - I managed to fit one in last night --- I've been loving this tea as a nightcap each night before bed.

If you're looking for more meal inspiration or perhaps some spooktacular snacks in anticipation of Halloween, head on over to Peas & Crayons to see what other bloggers have been cooking up!

How do you avoid over-indulging during the holidays?

Fave thing you ate yesterday?

Have a great day,



  1. Can't ever go wrong w/ rice & roasted vegetables :)

    1. I agree...quick & easy and perfect for Fall!

  2. Oh my, your bean salad looks really good. It also looks like a great detox day from your massive Thanksgving dinners with all the fruit and veggies. That's right up my alley.

  3. All of you Canadian bloggers- So jealous that you get Thanksgiving before us! I love Thanksgiving.

    When I overeat it's so weird because my stomach rumbles like it's hungry, but... it feels full. Does that make sense? Every bite the day after the holidays feels like it should be the last one :)
