We LOVE What I Ate Wednesday, a weekly food diary “party” hosted by one of our favorite bloggers, Jenn of Peas and Crayons. What I Wish I Ate Wednesday is Healthy Way to Cook’s roundup of the best What I Ate Wednesday posts from the previous week.

Posts from January 29:

Tuna Kabocha Salad with Dill Flavored Dressing from Better with Sprinkles

For the first 13 years of my life, I refused to eat anything other than a tuna fish sandwich for lunch. Everyday, without fail, I would sit down in my school cafeteria and open the brown bag lunch my mother would so kindly pack for me and behold the mayo-drenched, wonderbread sandwich. My palate has since matured but my love for tuna has not faded in the least. This salad from Better with Sprinkles speaks to both the finicky child and  the daring adult within me as it takes a boring can of tuna and livens it up with the addition of spinach, kabocha, dill-flavored yogurt dressing, and hummus.

Brown Sugar & Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal with Almonds

I love oatmeal more than any other food on this planet. I generally get a lot of strange looks when I say that but I can’t help it! It is just so damn versatile; it a blank canvas that awaits your culinary flair. This particular oatmeal  from Happy Wife Healthy Life features a blend of apples, brown sugar, and cinnamon topped  with a handful of crunchy almonds for a healthy (and sweet!) way to start your day.

Carrot and Apple Muffins

No day of eating is complete without something sweet. These muffins from Retired Cardio Queen are the perfect little treat to satisfy your sweet tooth without undoing your diet! Full of delicious and wholesome ingredients like oats, flax seed, apples, and carrots and sweetened with maple syrup, they are perfect for an on-the-go breakfast or a healthy, after dinner treat.
