WIAW: The Animal Edition

Happy Wednesday people!

Grab your hats and noise makers and tie on that bib! It’s time to get this party started! And today? Well today, we’re taking a little foodie field trip to the zoo…or maybe the farm…heck, let’s do BOTH!

Last Friday, I woke up a bit later than I intended. With an appointment at 9am, I ran around like a CHICKEN with my head cut off trying to get out of the house in 30 minutes. Luckily, it only took me about 3 minutes to inhale breakfast…

Banana Oikos Yogurt with Peanut Butter Dots Cereal

I’ve been feeling like a MONKEY lately with my newfound love for Oikos’s Banana Greek yogurt…especially topped with peanut butter cereal (from Food Lion)! And don’t let that bag of coffee in the background fool ya…starting last week, my therapist has “advised” me to stay away from my boyfriend Joe while we heal up other matters of the heart circadian cycle. 😉

Earl Grey Lavender Black Tea

So, I begrudgingly happily fixed a cup of this new-to-me Earl Grey and rushed out the door (only to end up drinking half the cup before I forgot about it and it got cold…#fail)

Back at the house a couple of hours later and throughout the afternoon, I was back to my BIRD-eating ways…

Baked Cookie Dough Quest Bar.

A PERFECTLY baked cookie dough Quest bar around 11am

Walk at the Park - Book

And a crunchy Pink Lady apple on my walk at the park around 1pm

Back from the park and FINALLY feeling my appetite coming on, I whipped up a quick salad around 3pm and enjoyed it while sitting on the back patio!

Chicken Sausage Salad

Spinach topped with steamed kabocha, sautéed onions, spinach and fontina CHICKEN sausage and more cheese in the form of grated parm…because this MOUSE will ALWAYS take extra cheese! 😉

On a whim, I decided to go sweat like a PIG at a hot yoga class that night…midway through class, I realized it wasn’t such a good idea to eat onions two hours before sweating anything and everything out of my body…oops?

When I got back from class and showered up, I actually wasn’t feeling all that hungry, but veggies sounded good so I made myself a little RABBIT fare…

Veggies & Pretzel Mustard Dip

Broccoli and carrot sticks with the most amazing mustard dip ever invented (TJ Maxx find). And then a couple of hours later, before I hopped (ha, see what I did there?) into bed, I decided to have a little “dessert”

Kabocha with Almond & Coconut Butter

The rest of my steamed kabocha from lunch topped with almond and chocolate coconut butter. Not exactly the prettiest thing to look at, but delicious all the same!

At the end of the day, I realized that I really didn’t eat all that much. You guys know how I feel about judgment and comparison and how it has no place here on WIAW, but I still couldn’t help but think maybe I should try to share a day where I had more of an appetite. Never really knowing what the day will hold when it comes to food (can I get a heck yeah for intuitive eating!?), I decided to photograph the next day’s eats…


Just swing, fly, or hop yourself on over to Peas & Crayons to check out my guest post and see just what the next day held…serving to prove EXACTLY what I’ve been saying all along…the body truly KNOWS how to balance itself. You just have to trust it!

What is your spirit animal?
I’m a swan! Hey, wait a minute, does that mean I was once an ugly duckling?! 😯
