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.

I’m all about DIYing when it comes to nut butters (especially after the recent major recall), so I really loved the homemade chocolate almond butter Alex posted on Addicted to Running. Sometimes it can be tough to get enough protein on a vegan diet, but he fuels up right with protein powder, quinoa, and of course, his almond butter.

Sarah, the Blonde Bostonian, decided to start using My Fitness Pal (my personal favorite!) to track her food intake as a new healthy habit. I can’t believe I’ve never thought to make overnight oats using Greek yogurt, but she did it and it’s an absolutely brilliant idea. Sarah also shared a picture of her snack drawer at work, which is full of healthy things to munch on like cherry dark chocolate Kashi bars. Yum!

College student Julianna Bananna was packing up her bags to move out to LA for school last week, so she shared the box of foods she was taking with her (I always appreciate someone who loves their rainbow sprinkles J) She also posted pictures of some delicious meals full of fruit, eggs, avocado, and other healthy additions.

Serena of I Was Born to Do This has been trying to increase her protein, fiber, and water intake while decreasing sugar and starches, and it certainly showed in her WIAW post: her kale and cheddar omelet with a side of radishes looks fantastic, as does her healthy stew of beans, veggies, turkey and spices. She needs all the brain power she can get with her RD exam coming up! Good luck, Serena!

Keep those great WIAW posts coming!


A good habit to ‘fall’ into: Don’t neglect your diet and fitness just because bathing suit season is over. Check out these great fall habits from Bite Size Wellness for some easy ways to make sure you stay healthy all through the season!
