Hello everyone, it’s another Wednesday and you know what that means – What I Ate Wednesday! The day’s eats were captured yesterday – Tuesday. Thank you to Jenn for hosting and coming up with this event and making Wednesdays that much more awesome.

Peas and Crayons

But before we get into the day’s food pics, I have a grocery haul to share with you guys too! Don’t you love those? I definitely did NOT intent on buying so much stuff… but grocery shopping is just so therapeutic to me (no, this is not sarcasm). I’m all stocked up for a week or two šŸ™‚ Woopee!

Well first, I made a visit to Sephora because I’m almost out of foundation. I’ve been using Benefit’sĀ Oxygen Wow liquid foundation and the Bare Minerals interchangeably. I’m out of the Oxygen Wow though and I wanted to try out a different liquid. I went for this stila Stay All Day foundation; hope it’s good! It’s a foundation and concealer 2-in-1 so that’s pretty cool. It also comes with a brush!

Class got out early and I went straight to Jewel Osco ready with Lifeway coupons printed, and in hand. The main point of the trip was to get some Lifeway kefir cause I haven’t had any in a whileee now and you should already know how obsessed I am with kefir!

Two nonfat plain Lifeway kefir bottles (they were on sale too! So I saved a whole bunch on these); Mountain High fat free plain yoghurt (on sale); and vegetarian-fed cage free brown eggs.

Now, I don’t usually buy canned soup – like EVER but I was curious to try these so I just went for it. Garden vegetable, veggie noodle, and vegetable soup – all natural and organic šŸ™‚ I think they were all on sale too, if I remember correctly. Of course, I had to get a can of pumpkin as well!

I wasn’t planning on getting any nut butter but the Better’n was on sale for 4.99 so I went for it. Also this salsa was on sale and I’ve been out of salsa for a while. Needed a break from TJ’s salsas anyway!

I needed white tea back in my life. Thankfully it was on sale! I haven’t tried this brand for tea yet so we’ll see how it goes!

I am very pleased with Heinz for finally introducing a low sugar ketchup. It’s also lower in calories! Yay!

Peppers and bananas šŸ™‚ Two yellow to cut and put in the freezer and two green to ripen and eat normally.

Almost everything was on sale šŸ™‚ I’m a frugalista!

Now onto the day’s eats: Tuesday.

I did a jog/walk outside today upon waking up. It didn’t go as well as I wanted it to because I got some major cramps in the middle of it and had to go to the bathroom really bad lol so I had to cut it short. Still got a nice sweat going though! I made sure to walk a whole lot throughout the day to compensate too.

When I got home I made myself an ACV+lemon juice drink. It actually tastes good! Like lemonade kinda!

For breakfast I had oat bran with protein powder and blueberries. Don’t mix the blueberries into a chocolate oat bran while it’s cooking… the concoction will turn grey. Not the most appetizing thing in the world.

I had Starfruit Cafe for lunch – of course I did. It’s two punch tuesday and they have salted caramel and coconut flavors on Tuesdays – my favorite! Mmmmmm….

After the intense grocery trip, I made myself some eggs with spinach + spring mix and onions, topped with the new salsa and two slices of sprouted whole wheat bread form TJ’s.

For a night snack, I enjoyed some chocolate coconut pudding (but without the protein powder) topped with coconut butter and TJ’s puffed wheat cereal. Delicious! (note: sign up for Vitacost using my link to get $10 off first purchase)

  3. Need to try that pomegranate white tea. Sounds yummy!

  4. Chocolate coconut pudding sounds amazing! Just about everything on here looks amazing! Love the meals šŸ™‚

  5. I’ve never tried Kefir! Is it good? I heard it’s good for the gut which I need ha ha. I’m OBSESSED with that salsa. I always put it on eggs, delicious! I just ran out yesterday šŸ™

  6. Hardly buy canned soup either, but when I do I just make sure it’s natural ingredients. I’ve heard good things about that brand though šŸ™‚

  7. Yum! Great pics btw! šŸ™‚

  8. All of your eats look so delicious! One of my favorite teas is actually a pomegranate white… doesn’t it just have the freshest/crispest taste? I don’t usually buy a lot of canned coups, but I’ve had that Health Valley one before and thought it was pretty good. Plus, sometimes you just can’t argue with convenience.

    • I actually haven’t tried it YET but I will before class tonight šŸ™‚ I’m sure it’s delicious though, glad to hear it’s your favorite now I’m sure I’ll like it! For me convenience definitely wins a lot of times since I’m a college student and I live with 3 other people; can’t really always make my own dinners… not even enough space in here to do that :/

  9. You really know how to fancy up your frozen yogurt(?).

  10. That Health Valley Vegetable soup is one of my favorites! I love that brand in general because they make organic, salt-free soups that are delicious. And I’m glad you’re a Kefir lover šŸ™‚
