A few facts.

Happy WIAW! Are you guys ready for some eats?wiaw fall into good habits button

I’m going to be honest with you guys. My breakfasts have been fairly lack luster recently. I blame it on lack of sleep-weather-and overall desire to make anything. I guess I have to make a confession. I’m in a breakfast rut. There, I said it! I feel so relieved now….IMG_2743 wheat bagel, naner and peanut butter

To be honest, this rut I’m in is quite tasty, so I really don’t see the big rush to get out of it.

I wouldn’t say I’m in a rut when it comes to lunches, but I am definitely in a certain kind of mood. A soup and bread kind of mood.

Soup isn’t as delicious if there isn’t a fat piece of bread to dunk into it. The soup is automatically 100x better if that fat piece of bread is french bread. It’s a known fact.

And dinner? Well, I’ll let dinner speak for itselfsoup2

There are no words to describe how much I enjoyed this meal. Literally no words. There were lots of sounds though. And I’m on a bit of a cheese kick if you haven’t noticed. My dreams lately have been filled with nachos, quesadillas and grilled cheese sandwiches.

Of course no day is complete without a few snackssnacks6 saltine crackers and PB, watermelon

I’m aware this is my second time eating peanut butter in 1 day. I’m also aware the serving size for peanut butter is 2T. Know what? I don’t care.

And last but not least, I have to get my chocolate fix in somehow each day. Recently, I’ve resorted to an old favorite.cocoaFACT: Hot cocoa is not complete without a dollop of cool whip or a squirt of whip cream. It’s just not. 

It’s also a fact that if you squirt some whip cream directly into your mouth before you squirt some into your cup, your day will improve immensely. Don’t believe me? Give it a try.

  • I don’t blame you for having the same brekkie- one of the best combos out there! My food fact for the day: I just can’t get enough of eggs and cheese today…which explains why lunch involved feta & scrambled eggs whereas dinner included a cheddar frittata!

  • I’ve been in a huge soup mood lately! Love it!

  • My food fact: I can’t eat apples without cinnamon and almonds :) just isn’t the same

  • Yup, PB, banana and bagel can’t be beat. And I will always make the conscious decision to ignore the serving size on jars of nut butter.

    Food fact: You DO need to try tempeh! I’ll admit it’s not for everyone, but it definitely has a flavor all it’s own (and texture), so that puts it heads above tofu in my book. If you want to try pre-made first, I suggest buying premade tempeh bacon (usually in the refrigerated health-food-section of grocery stores/Whole Foods). All the joys of bacon AND tempeh! If you like that, then by all means cook your own–it is SO simple/easy, just marinate and bake/pan-cook/broil, your choice. (I can give you specifics there if you’d like).

  • life isn’t complete without whipped cream, hands down. I need to get some watermelon now, gosh i haven’t seen it near me. dang off season!

  • I have been in a soup mood lately too! Yum! I also love hot chocolate! yum! After my 5k a couple of weeks ago all i wanted was hot chocolate so I popped one of my kcups in! yum! so good! I’ve been craving panera bagels for like months now! I need to goooo!

  • I’ve been in a food rut for like a month. Wanting to eat the same thing every single day! Soup MUST have bread, I agree..it’s just not the same without it. My fact is this..coffee tastes better when it’s in a cute mug.

  • Awh great food facts!! Mine for today is that peanut butter tastes 100xs better right out the jar!! :0) have a happy day!! Spa <3

  • Mmmm watermelon. What? Err. Hi :D

    Breakfast rut – that’s me for the past… 4 months? I think I’ve just fallen into a habit with yogurt and cereal, or maybe it’s another phase? I went through an oatmeal phase, a PopTart phase, a Mini Wheat phase… maybe this is just another thing that has to run it’s course. At least it’s delicious :D My foodie fact? My day isn’t complete without a trip to Starbucks… especially now that it holds a special place in my heart ;)

  • I can’t get over how delicious your dinner looks. I kinda wish it were dinner time so I could run to the kitchen & make it! bummer.

    I can’t seem to get enough of pancakes. They are making the perfect breakfast meals lately :)

  • Love this, especially the banana/bagel/pb combo, SO true! And I must say, I’m drooling pretty hardcore over that lunch sandwich haha
    Lately, I haven’t been able to get enough bananas. You’d better just start referring to me as a chimp haha! :D

  • I’m having soup for lunch for the first time of the season today, and I’m pretty excited about it! And that hot chocolate with whipped cream looks perfect!

  • oh, that cafe escapes hot cocoa is the bomb! I’m not BIG on hot cocoa, but I Have a few k-cups of that one and it’s one of the best :) And I loooove soup so I really want some, especially your minestrone! ahhhhh~~~soup and salad are my friends at this moment.
