This is an account of what I ate on a combo of 2 separate days this week. Some is from Sunday June 10th and the rest is Tuesday June 12th.
This month’s What I Ate Wednesday topic is Sensible Snacking. This issue is a bit backwards for me in that when I am “on the go” I am a very sensible snacker! It’s when I’m at home with a stocked kitchen that my snacking gets out of control! It’s no secret that I love my salty snacks and portion control is never on my mind. This month I am going to TRY my best to pack up a few snacks for the day and hopefully save my wallet and waistline some misery!
Chicken and broccoli penne! One of my co workers brought in some leftover food from a weekend function. Delicious. (And free)
I also had some leftover succotash. Got to get those veggies in!
These salty little nuggets were packed with flavor and kept me going through a very long day!
Snack # 2:
I also had some hummus with bell peppers and grape tomatoes. I could eat red peppers everyday! It’s my favorite vegetable. Even when I was in elementary school, my mom would pack them in my school lunch 🙂
This was from Sunday’s make your own pizza night! Nolan and I handled the toppings and his sister Ashley and her boyfriend Shawn handled the rest! They picked up two hand rolled crusts from Bertuccis (one wheat, one regular), a chicken Caesar salad, and they even threw in some fresh rolls! Heaven!!!!
For toppings, Nolan prepared two kinds of chicken, (BBQ and Buffalo), bacon, onions, peppers, jalapenos, pineapple and lots of cheese!
Nolan LOVES his bacon 🙂
Pizza # 1: Death By Buffalo. It had buffalo chicken, hot sauce, jalapenos, and spicy buffalo American cheese.
Pizza #2: BBQ Pineapple. This was my favorite pizza. It had BBQ chicken, bacon, onions, and pineapple.
Dessert: I took care of dessert for the evening! Before you get scared let me say that I had help from Betty again! (On sale for $1.99)
I did add my own little twist…
So creative I know!
Now this is the part where I could say I was a sensible snacker and only had one of these babies….or even 2. But that would be a bold faced lie. I won’t give precise numbers but it is embarrassingly high. I quickly packed the rest of these up the next morning and took them to work with me! Sensible right? 🙂
What is your FAVORITE snack? (healthy or otherwise)
