Hey everyone! I hope you all are having a good week, I sure am! I arrived home, in Kansas City, late Monday afternoon and I’m already LOVING the freedom and not having anything that I HAVE to do! Yesterday I went to Jazzercise class with my mom, went to the grocery store, went on a long walk, and did some recipe research to help my mom meal plan! Not sure what’s on the agenda for today, but that’s what I’m enjoying the most!

So even though I’m in Kansas City, the What I Ate Wednesday posts will continue! If you are new to WIAW, head over to Peas and Crayons to find out what it’s all about, and see all the other bloggers who are participating!

Peas and Crayons


Today’s WIAW features my food from yesterday! I woke up in the morning starving, but found I had little I could eat in the house… My mom had taken all “my” food out to Colorado for when I visited them during spring break, but didn’t bring it back. So I dug around and decided to risk it and eat some Quaker oats, even though they aren’t gluten free. I’ve heard they only bother people who are really allergic and since I’m just intolerant, I thought it would be fine. I made some plain oats and served them with strawberry chobani, and half a sliced banana! (and no… there wasn’t even peanut butter in the house…).

After breakfast was Jazzercise and then a couple grocery stores. By the time I was done I was so hungry so I hit up The Mixx on my way home and got a small salad to go. It had chicken, beets, artichoke hearts and roasted yams with a ginger pear dressing. I mixed it up in a bowl when I got home:

After lunch I lounged around a bit, sat outside, and helped my mom do some meal planning. I sat outside on our patio trying to call some people, but no one answered! I had a warm cup of coffee too, which I was craving since I didn’t have any that morning! Haha the day just doesn’t feel complete without a cup!

After a while I got a little hungry so I made a snack of greek yogurt with blueberries. First I microwaved the blueberries and added a packet of stevia:

Then I added the greek yogurt:

I also added in a small scoop of peanut spread… That’s right, peanut “spread.” And the weirdest part? It claims to have zero calories. Weird, right? I thought so. I’d seen it before in the grocery store and I’ve always been very skeptical. But my curiosity got the best of me.

Not really sure about this… It didn’t taste too bad, but the ingredients list confuses me, and I’m not a fan of eating things when I don’t know what they are. Definitely won’t buy it again, but I had to give it a try. They also sold jellies, jams, caramel sauce, chocolate sauce and marshmallow fluff. Still weirded out by it…

I also had bought some of the new Gluten Free Rice Krispies, so I had a mini bowl of those with blueberries and Enjoy Life Chocolate Chips (free of the 8 main allergens!). I couldn’t resist – I haven’t bought cereal in a while and it was calling my name!

I helped my mom unload some groceries, chatted with her a bit, and then headed off to Target. The Target I usually go to was re-done over this past semester, so I HAD to check it out. They had a whole new grocery section, with produce, meat, literally everything you could need! I was really quite impressed with it all, they even sold Almond Milk and Chobani yogurt!

I got home and it was an hour or so until dinner time and I WAS HUNGRY. Haha, this is one of the few things I dislike about being at home: I can’t eat dinner whenever I want to, I have to wait until “dinner time.” Since I knew I’d just get angrier and angrier as the time went on I grabbed a cup of grapes and a few rice crackers to hold me over (I also had a few more grapes… couldn’t quit picking at them!

For dinner my mom had made pork tenderloin and veggies (yellow squash, red potato, onions and orange bell pepper) and some fruit on the side. I had already eaten too much fruit so I wasn’t in the mood and just kind of picked at mine. The meat and veggies were delicious though! See? I can’t complain about dinner time when someone else is making me dinner! Here’s part way through dinner, I completely forgot… Ok. I lied. This is partway through my mother’s dinner. I polished off my meat and veggies and then practically yelled: “I FORGOT TO TAKE A PICTURE!” Thank goodness my understanding mother offered up her plate.

A little after dinner I decided to make some popcorn! Haha yep, I’m bringing the brown-paper bag trick to KC! I had this, times two! And that’s some Chocolate PB2 on the side, haha love to dip a little popcorn in there for some sweet!

I also wanted to make popcorn so I could try these powders I found at Target:

I liked the white cheddar, but the kettle corn was disappointing… I didn’t really taste like kettle corn. Sad day. I had a bunch more grapes too! Haha addicting…


What do you all think about the peanut spread? Freaked out? I think I might toss it since I’ve tried it and thus quashed my curiosity.


Does anyone make you dinner? It’s a rare luxury for me!
