What I Ate Wednesday

Howdy! Happy Wednesday....and Happy Halloween!!

So here we are at the last day of October. Isn't it crazy how fast the time has flown by?!

....and speaking of crazy, were you affected by Hurricane Sandy? Monday night was cold, rainy and very windy. There was alot of hype about Southern Ontario being hit by Frankenstorm, but all we got was a typical autumn storm. We were very lucky.

*If you were affected by the Hurricane,
please know that our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family*

Here`s a peek at my eats from yesterday:

Oy! I woke up an hour late yesterday, which was not good considering that it's my week to drive in our carpool. I had to be ready to go lickity split, but I did manage to find 5 minutes to whip together a quick breakfast of honey-flavoured Greek yogourt, pumpkin puree and harvest granola. It was good, but didn't keep me as full as I would've liked. I was starving by lunchtime.

Speaking of lunch, I just realized now as I was writing that last sentence that I totally forgot to take a picture! I didn't have time to make lunches for Derek and I this morning, so I ended up with a ginormous slice of veggie pizza. Think mozza cheese, fresh mushrooms, tomatoes, green peppers and red onion. Not as healthy as I would've had if I'd made my lunch, but it was pretty darn tasty!

On Monday night, I made the Fitnessista's pumpkin amazeballs. Holy delicious!! They taste just like pumpkin pie. I packed one in my gym bag as a pre-workout snack. IN LOVE

On the weekend I made Lindsay's Crockpot Lentil Veggie Lasagna. I made a few changes: I baked mine in the oven, used fresh spinach and used cottage cheese instead of ricotta. This is delicious!! As a side, we had roasted honey dijon brussel sprouts. I really love carb-heavy dishes like lasagna and I find that having a big side of healthy veggies discourages me from, these sprouts are the bomb-digity of roasted veggies!!!

Now tonight is going to be a true test to my willpower because all that candy sitting on my kitchen table has been calling my name. So far, I've stayed out of it and tomorrow I'm planning to take any leftovers to work for my co-workers to enjoy. I don't mind having a couple of treats tonight, but I don't want all the little goodies to stick around too long!!

How do you resist the temptation of all that leftover candy and chocolate?

What was the best costume that you wore as a kid?

Have a fun and safe night my friends,



  1. i couldn't help myself but click on your wiaw link to see what kind of ball you made! and these - i have them pinned and have been dying to make them. great to know they are delicious - the pumpkin is so festive. making some this weekend!

    1. They are so, so good! The recipe only makes 4 and I'm wishing that I doubled or tripled it!!

  2. Those pumpkin amazeballs sounds great. I love Fitnessista's recipes. Never to complicated, but always delicious!

    And I don't know how you could resist that bowl of candy. The laffy taffy is calling my name :)

    1. It's not easy to resist the temptation lol! That's why I didn't open the boxes of candy until last night and why they're coming to work with me tomorrow to be given away!

  3. I'm glad to hear that you all remained safe, and weren't affected by the storm too bad :).

    To get rid of candy I always hand it out to whoever wants it. The hubs isn't a big sweets fan, so he's no help lol

    1. We always give out great big handfuls too! My husband's the same - he'll have a couple, but I'm definitely the bigger sweet tooth!

  4. Love the fitnessista! I've found some incredible recipes over there!

    Glad to hear that you're safe!!! Have a wonderful holiday:)
