What I Ate Wednesday

I came across this idea of What I Ate Wednesday (or WIAW) on a few other blogs that I read. If I followed all of the posts correctly, I think that it gets traced back to Peas and Crayons.

What is it? In summary, it's just a look at a day of food.

What WIAW isn’t about
Comparison – Judgement – Restriction – Guilt

What WIAW is about
Celebrating one of the glorious things we all have in common: We all eat!

What I Ate Wednesday is about food and fun! It’s about making new friends, breaking out of a food rut, noting changes in your diet/lifestyle, inspiring yourself and others, embracing fruit and vegetables, nourishing your body with the foods that work for you, finding new ways to eat your favorite foods, and so. much. more.

People are always interested in what dietitians eat. Often, I find people assume that I never eat dessert, or that all I eat is veggies. To be fair, I eat a lot of veggies. But I also like my chocolate. It's all about balance. And some days are better than others.

To change things up here and there on the blog, I thought I'd add in #WIAW on occasion. Won't necessarily be every week, but it will show up here and there. So stay tuned!

Afternoon snacks were a little all over the place - we had some samples lying around the office from product development, so I munched away. After work I hit up the gym, and enjoyed the KIND bar on the way home. You can see that I forgot to take a photo of the KIND bar before I ate it. This blog has highlighted to me just how bad I am at remembering to pictures - argh. I probably ate a few more leafy greens than usual, with the two salads. But overall, a fairly typical day.
