WIAW: Grill Marks the Spot

Happy protuberance day my friends!

…what? I thought “hump” was a little too overplayed so I synonymed. Because THAT’S a word.

Let’s just stick to what I know, and get eating!


What I Ate Wednesday Logo


After sweating through day 5 of Jillian Michael’s Ripped in 30 while still half asleep, I was more than ready to houdini my breakfast. Yawning through pushups isn’t a good sign is it?

Grateful List and Breakfast Smoothie

And the world’s quickest breakfast was born. A scoop of Amazing Grass Choco PB Protein powder, 1/2 a small avocado, and some instant coffee to get my caffeine and breakfast fix through a straw.

Alongside my daily ritual of writing 10 things I’m grateful for in the tiniest font humanly possible. Maybe I should add that one to tomorrow’s list…

After chat about stone fruits and eating our way through the alphabet with one of my classes, I had my first taste of an RX bar that I’ve seen breaking the food blogger internet lately.

Coconut Chocolate RX Bar

I wasn’t terribly hungry, but had another class before lunch and knew I would be a hangry hulk teacher if I didn’t eat something first. I had half the bar, and….meh. It was good and I liked the ingredients, but it didn’t blow me away.


The kids must have been hangry as well because between ice spills, arm wrestling, and fighting over cucumber seeds, I was ready to stop adulting for the day.

Throw err’thang in a bowl on top of greens and call it lunch kinda salad it was.

Chicken Sausage on Salad

This time with some nitrate-free chicken hot dogs from TJ’s, salsa, avocado, and some roasted beets. Totally weird, but it worked. If only I didn’t run out of my gigantic pickles, than this piece would have been perfection.

Plus something sweet with Ree. The perfect combination.

After a couple rainy days, I was more than happy to soak up the sun poolside after work. Not so happy to embrace post cannonball splashes from children. Don’t get me wrong, I love kids, but I simply had no chill for them today.


Thankfully, Maya Angelou’s inspiring words held me together until food could.

Grilled zucchini is one of my favorite things during the summer, so I took matters into my own hands and used my panini press to get the same effect. Grill schmill!

Veggie Frittata and ZucchiniThose grill marks doh 😉

Served along side a veggie frittata loaded with some CSA veggies, including fennel, new potatoes, and some beet greens I cut from the tops of some ginorm-o beets. And a simple green salad with a vinaigrette. A very French-esque dinner. My Grammy would be so proud.

And let’s not forget an Emily-style after dinner mint!

  1. Yes, RX bars have been everywhere! Have you seen the Maple one? And that ‘protuberance’ word? Kudos for looking that up and replacing ‘hump day’ with it. :o)
