WIAW #2: A Snacky Kind of Day

by admin on July 27, 2011

Hiya, folks!  Welcome to my 3rd What I Ate Wednesday, the very first where I’m actually doing what WIAW was meant to do.  In case you missed the memo, What I Ate Wednesday is a rocking party that Jenn over at Peas and Crayons hosts every week.  Thanks Jenn for your complete awesome hostessness!  I’m all about making up words today.  Hostessness.  Snacky.  You get it. 

We read all sorts of healthy living blogs, but we’re still left wondering: How do these people really eat?  Do they really not indulge?  What does a normal meal look like?

I must admit that yesterday was a weird day for me; I didn’t eat a full meal until dinner, but I did have snack after snack after snack all day long.  Or small meals.  There were some of those.

I apologize for the photo quality; we had dinner out with two amazing friends last night (we’re SO thrilled to have you back in Georgia, Emily and Eric!) and I’m not up for pulling out my camera in a restaurant just yet, so most of yesterday’s photos were taken on a camera phone.  But you’ll still get the idea.

So, let’s get this party started!

Pre-Run Breakfast

Protein Shake (not pictured; it’s boring looking)

Post-Run Breakfast

Would’ve been a green smoothie if I hadn’t managed to break my Vitamix while making it, so instead, I had my new favorite (Sunbutter!) on a banana.

It's tastier than it looks!

Early Lunchtime Snack

Roasted red pepper hummus on whole wheat pita bread (not pictured; I forgot)

Lunchtime Snack

Adore Amande almond milk yogurts!

Late Lunchtime Snack

The last of this week's Baked Blueberry Bliss

Dinner at Wisteria


Black-eyed-pea hummus with homemade sweet potato chips

This is the photo quality I get when I refuse to use a camera in a nice restaurant.


Almond-encrusted Georgia mountain trout with sautéed haricot verts, corn, tomatoes, fingerling and baby red potatoes with a bacon vinaigrette.

Do you use your camera in nice restaurants?  What kind of reception do you get?

I ALWAYS take my camera into nice restaurants. I actually have a booklight I use to help with lighting. In Austin, it’s pretty common to see people photographing food, and usually I’m greeted very warmly. [Sometimes I even get bonus desserts!] Even in places where bloggers aren’t as common I’ve never been treated strangely. [Which shocks me, really!]

ohmygosh I still have never had black eyed peas! my husband was asking for some the other day and I was dumbfounded that I didn’t know how to even approach them! Hummus sounds gooood!

Happy WIAW!

Wisteria is one of my favorite restaurants. That hummus is really good.

I will take pictures in restaurants if I’m just with my husband, but if I’m with a big group, I usually don’t.
