Congrats! I will email you shortly :)

My first WIAW post! I don't know what it is about looking at pictures of what other's ate but I love these kinds of posts.  I guess it boils down to discovering new foods and getting food inspirations from other blogging foodies. Happy to take part in WIAW!

I am currently sick as a dog (cough/cold) and so my day has been filled with food's high in Vitamin C! For breakfast I had a really delicious smoothie made with almond milk, protein powder, banana, frozen raspberries, fresh blackberries, spinach and ground flax.

My morning snack was 2 clementines, love these lil guys.

After eating many ricola cough drops, it was time for lunch.  I had some leftover butternut squash soup with a slice of multigrain toast.  I really am trying to kick the crap out of my cold. 

The rest of the afternoon I had a lot of tea with lemon/honey and then of course it was someones birthday so I had a piece of coffee cake.  I didn't take a picture of the deadly delicious cake which is probably a good thing. (no picture, no guilt)

Around 3 pm I was basically asleep at my desk from the sugar rush and so I had a coffee and some new trail mix I received from Prana. (review to come)

After work I bought some cute baby presents from Indigo for my preggo friend.  They really have the cutest things ever and call me a bad OR hilarious friend but I bought her this:

Shopping always makes me hungry so I made a healthy meal when I got home that really hit the spot.  Pan-fry tilapia with roasted asparagus and sauteed onions and spinach with quinoa. So delicious! No leftover fish for lunch tomorrow but I'll bring the quinoa/veggie mixture.

So far no late night snack except for 3 blue tortilla chips and salsa, does that even count?

Happy Wednesday Everyone!

  1. Yum! You looked like you had a lovely meal as well! I hope you feel better soon! I have mono, and I've been trying to pound it with Vitamin C too! *fingers crossed* PS. Where did you get that pacifier?!? I *MUST* buy one for my prego sister-in-law!!!

    1. Oh no mono doesn't sound like fun, hope you feel better. I bought the pacifier from Chapters/Indigo, if there are none near you just google mustache pacifier and there are a ton of websites that sell them. So cool eh :)

  2. Hope you get well soon--your eats were certainly healthy enough to help and they look delish too!

  3. For a sick person, your food looks really good, Natalie! The smoothie looks delicious. I need to dust off the old Magic Bullet and make some. The veggie combo with your dinner looks tasty too. Welcome to WIAW!!

  9. Oh no! How sad that you're sick! I hope all the nutrients you've been ingesting are kicking this illness's butt!

  10. I hope you are feeling better very soon! The clementines should totally help, try some garlic too. I know what you mean about the tortilla chips, but I find every little taste and snack and bites counts . . . unfortunately.
