Baby It’s Cold Outside

Hey hey guys and gals!

It’s time for another What I Ate Wednesday!

But this time it’s the “Brrrrrrrrrr!” edition!

As always, a big thank you to Jenn of Peas & Crayons for putting this shin-dig together each week!

I’ve mentioned how crummy the weather’s gotten lately, but what I failed to stress was the fact that just a week ago, it was pushing 70 degrees outside with the sun shining so bright you wouldn’t even think of driving without sunglasses…

And now?

Now it “feels like” it’s freezing it IS freezing outside and we haven’t seen the sun in over a week! 🙁

Needless to say, my body was craving hot comfort food today!

All starting with my festive red and green breakfast:

Oat bran cooked in water topped with a fried egg, steamed broccoli and nooch with a side of black coffee (1/2 Sumatra blend from TJ’s, 1/2 Teccino)

Warmed me from my head to my toes!

And yes, I had broccoli in my oat bran…I’ve been craving vegetables like mad lately.

A few hours later, I had a warm solution to my cold snack selection:

TJ’s Vanilla & Cinnamon tea steeped in unsweetened almond milk to go with my Fage yogurt I found on sale for $1 at the store the other day! 🙂

Like breakfast, another slightly odd appearance from the vegetable department happened  to my lunch…anyone ever tried chili as a salad topper? I love how the heat of the chili wilts the spinach just enough….mmm!

Warm leftover chili on a bed of baby spinach topped with plain Greek yogurt, cheddar cheese, crushed tortilla chips and jalapenos.

Am I the only person that reads that to myself as
“ja-LAP-inos”? 😉

Before I left for work, (and braved the elements) I made sure to make a big ol’ mug of this:

The trick is to burn your esophagus after taking a sip much too soon…that way you don’t feel the goosebumps form all over your body the moment you step outside 😉

When it came time for dinner, all I wanted was a big bowl of hot soup and I wanted it quick!

Enter shortcut miso soup!

1 cup water + 1/2 cup veggie broth + sauteed veggies + 1 Tbsp miso



I also roasted some broccoli & brussels…you know, since I was running low on green foods for the day!

Actually, this was my first time ever trying roasted broccoli…LOVED it!

As far as water consumption goes, I think I squeaked out about 48 ounces (that would be approximately 1500cc, Elise)…could’ve done better, but heck…


Oh and I totally forgot my multivitamins…oops!

What is your favorite warm food/beverage to have on a super cold day?

What’s the best thing you ate today?
I would have to say dinner was by far the best!!
