Recycling is good, right?
Well, I’m glad you agree, because that’s what all of my WIAW photos are today: recycled!
The reason why is because I stayed up at school over the weekend (whereas I usually go home) and therefore didn’t have a camera. The good news is that I ate repeats of the same meals I’ve had over the weeks, so I still have pictures to share for WIAW!
Hosted by Jenn at Peas and Crayons!
Ok, so I didn’t have the fancy bowl and fruit (it was raisins), nor were the trees outside green (I WISH!), but this was what made up my delicious breakfasts: a Greek yogurt bowl!
My lunches this past week have consisted of leftover baked ziti (see below) and these Cedar Lane organic vegetarian burritos. I’ve been enjoying an apple or two on the side of each meal, so pretend like those cherries below are apple slices. 🙂
I don’t know what makes those burritos so good, but WOW I think I could eat them for every meal of the day and be happy! I’ll have to try and fashion my own recipe sometime…
I was really bad and bought myself a box of Wheat Thins. Bad bad decision. Lesson learned.
Other than that, I’ve been enjoying lots of fruit and popcorn when I want something salty!
On Sunday evening, I made a huge 9×11-inch pan full of baked ziti. It has lasted me through the week and I can honestly say I’m not tired of it yet. Success! It being the last few days of me eating meat, I decided to go with something full of beef, since that is usually (for some bizarre reason) the meat that I tend to crave, if I’m going to crave meat at all. I’ve heard things about that being my body’s way of telling me I need iron?? Either way, this stuff tasted gooooood.
The pictures are actually of another baked ziti I made a few years ago…I just found them in iPhoto and they look similar enough to what I made that it works.
Hooray for recycling!
Once I am able to get a good enough picture of the stuff (probably within the next couple of months) I’ll post the recipe for you all. It’s so simple but delicious!
Another meal that I enjoyed over the weekend was from Panera. As usual, I got their BBQ Chopped Chicken salad. SO GOOD.
Finally, I didn’t get a picture of it (bummer) but on Monday night Dan made us dinner. This is pretty big, considering he always said “he can’t cook”. He made breaded pork chops and whole wheat spaghetti with pesto and it was delicious. 🙂
There really wasn’t a whole lot going on in the dessert section. We got some frozen yogurt on Saturday night…
…and I’ve been enjoying some Dove dark chocolates as mini desserts.
Well, that whole recycling thing worked out better than I thought! I guess I don’t change my diet up too much…
Workouts January 27-February 2

Friday: Yoga? 30 Day Shred?
Saturday: 35 minutes on elliptical + strength training
In other news, yesterday would have been my dog Abby’s 12th birthday.
I miss her every single day. She was the sweetest dog. I have Ella now who makes me so happy, but Ella is a firecracker lap dog (contradiction, I know) whereas Abby was a peaceful lap dog through and through. Happy Birthday, Abby!
I’m very excited to start this new pescetarian diet on Friday, but tomorrow I will be posting the Savory Apple and Onion Stuffed Pork recipe for you all. I know I said I wanted to wait until I heard back from the people hosting the competition, but…I eventually decided not to. Plus, it would seem kind of weird to post a meat recipe after starting my new challenge. 🙂 So anyway, stay tuned, it’s a good one!
Um, ok, so as you know, I despise spoilers, but did anyone watch Downton Abbey?!?!? I won’t say too much just in case some of you didn’t catch it, but I will just say this: I had the hardest time falling and staying asleep Sunday night because of what happened. Ugh. I love and hate it when a show can make me this emotional!
Do you tend to change up your diet from week to week, or do you stick with the basics?
What is one food you can’t allow yourself to buy (be it because of allergies, a diet, finances, etc.)?
Did you watch Downton Abbey? Can you stealthily and without spoiling anything for others what you thought of it?
Anyway, I’m off to work. Have a wonderful Wednesday!
