What I Ate Wednesday #19

Good morning! I’m over halfway through my first week of grad school classes. Luckily I have Fridays off! Although, I’ll probably be using them to study biostatistics because I think that class is going to consume my life. Oh well.

I can’t believe that fall is creeping up on us. This will be the last summer What I Ate Wednesday post – August flew by! Thanks again to Jenn for hosting WIAW. For those of you who don’t know, Jen over at Peas and Crayons hosts WIAW every week – check out her blog for more information on it and to find some new blogs to read.


Breakfast was my typical overnight oats – pictures above are night vs. morning. I made my Nutella overnight oats (recipe here) but substituted the Nutella for Justin’s Chocolate Hazelnut Butter again. My overnight oats never fail me!

For a mid-morning snack I had an “Envy” apple from New Zealand. I love living near a Whole Foods and Central Market again so that I can get cool apples! 🙂


For “lunch” I had a strawberry banana oat smoothie to hold me through my three hour class. I had block classes in college, but I forgot how long they can drag on!

When I got home from class I snacked on a Chobani apple cinnamon yogurt with pumpkin granola. I still contend that apple cinnamon is the best Chobani flavor! I’ll probably be eating it even more in the fall because it will feel seasonal :).


For dinner, I didn’t have exactly the above picture, but something pretty similar. My Mom made a pasta tossed with zucchini, roasted red peppers and a light cream sauce. It reminded me of my Lemon Yogurt Pasta (recipe here) and I forgot to take a picture of last night’s meal so I used this one! It was made with gluten-free pasta and I actually couldn’t even notice that it was gluten-free. For any GF folks out there, the brand was Schar and it was their penne pasta.

I finished the night off with a triple chocolate chunk cookie that caught my eye at Whole Foods along with glass of wine as I  caught up on Pretty Little Liars. (Yes, I love my ABC Family shows!)

And that’s What I Ate Wednesday Tuesday! Grad school is keeping me busy, but I’ll be back with a new recipe soon!

  6. Congrats on making it halfway through your first week! I’m looking forward to hearing your thoughts about your program! What classes are you taking this semester (besides biostatistics)?

    Oh gosh, I feel your pain in regards to block classes; every single class in my program is 2.5 hours! In some ways its great though, because it means going to campus just once/week for each class instead of twice. In other ways, it’s not so great (sitting for extended periods of time is NOT one of my talents; I usually get up to “go to the bathroom” at least three times during class!). 😉

    Everything looks delicious! Apple cinnamon Chobani is one of my favorite flavors too, however my heart still belongs to pineapple (and now the new dessert-like chocolate chunk).

      I’m also taking epidemiology (the first class made it seem like it won’t be as bad as I thought), a health behavior theory class which will hopefully be interesting, and then I’m doing two required 1 credit seminars. One is about ethics and another just introduces a bunch of health promotion topics to us so that one will be fun!

  7. What a delicious day of eats!
    Yay for being done with your first week! That’s always exciting! 🙂

    Oh goodness! And it’s only the beginning…Looks like we have a long semester ahead of us! Fortunately for me, I’m not so bombarded with assignments…yet…Come next week, bye bye freedom. I’m trying to enjoy every single moment I have right now!
    I’ve never tried the apple cinnamon flavor! I haven’t even seen it! Sounds divine!
