What I Ate Wednesday #99 [Healthy Holiday Recipes Edition!]

HOLY WIAW BATMAN!!!! 99!?!?!?
I have no words.  I have 99 words.  I have 99 problems and... I'm stopping there =)

Be prepared for copious amounts of squealing from me when we hit 100 next week.  
You've been warned!  Muahaha!

Happy What I Ate Wednesday!

What I Ate Last Thursday:
[I choose a random day each week to post on Wednesdays. "As is tradition!"]

breakfast good old store brand muesli cereal with unsweetened coconut milk  gym eats a key lime larabar and lots. of. water!  post-gym fuel two scrambled eggs with kale and sriracha and a big mug of black coffee  lunch a mug of decaf candy cane lane green tea and a yummy chickpea sweet potato burger from my freezer stash dinner cheesy ravioli with homemade sauce and grated pecorino romano cheese along with more water and another mug of Christmas tea dessert an unphotographed handful of dark chocolate chips to go with my tea.  They are AMAZING with Christmas-y teas.  Just... Wow!
What I didn't eat:  my toes.

Let me clarify!  I've been partaking in glorious post-gym epsom salt soaks and it just so happens that Peppermint-Spearmint-Eucalyptus epsom salts make you smell like a candy cane.  I LOVE CANDY CANES!  I had to resist the urge to munch on my limbs.  I escaped uneaten.  Barely.


Hookay so... for the recipe portion of my post -- I'm going to grab a few of my favorites from last week's party and link them up on here!  I'll be back in a little bit with a round-up of yummy holiday recipes!  Until then, link up yours eats!  Can't wait to see what you've been whipping up as of lately!   

Our theme this month is healthy holiday recipes! Feel free to add a festive recipe or two to your post so we can try something new!

  4. PLEASE tell me "as is tradition" is a super sneaky nod to basically the best South Park episode of all time -- the Canadian royal wedding. If that is the case (and I'm not crazy), I think we might actually (still) be the same person.

    Love the blog, Jenn! Hope all is well, gorgeous. ;)
