WIAW: Melon Baller

Sorry about yesterday’s bum post.  I guess that’s what happens when you’re in a bum mood.  Stupid hormones.  I digress…

I’m in a much better mood today.  We’re all one day closer to Friday.  My book club meets tonight.  And of course it’s What I Ate Wednesday time!  Woohoo!  Be sure to check out Peas & Crayons for other great meal ideas.  I stole this little ditty about Jack and Dianne WIAW from her site, and it helps explain why I love it:

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!
WIAW is about food and fun! It’s about making new friends, breaking out of a food rut, inspiring
yourself & others, embracing fruit & vegetables, finding new ways to eat your favorite foods, and so
much more ❤
Celebrate blogging. Celebrate Food. Celebrate Individuality.
[Cause over here, we like to party!]
Yesterday’s breakfast began with a rice cake, though I predict I’ll be having half an Eat.Think.Smile chewy bar before my other workouts this week.  I also had an Oikos plain, fat-free, organic Greek yogurt (mouthful) with almost a cup of raspberries and half a cup of Kashi GoLean cereal after my workout.
On Monday, I made a quinoa bowl with summer veggies that I plan to eat on all week.  I also threw in half a can of tuna (though I’ll be using a full can for other days this week).  This actually tasted much better than anticipated.  I’ll share more about this veggie bowl tomorrow.
Oh, I also had a few (okay… 10… exactly 10) raw almonds with lunch.
(Not Pictured) I ate a peach with a hard boiled egg for snack.  
loads of nutrients + a little fat + non-refined carbs + protein = perfection

Dinner was a simple dinner straight from the kids’ menu, but I don’t care.  It’s an organic chicken frank on a wheat bun with onions.  I assume I also had about 2 cups of cantaloupe.

As you can see, I do not have a melon baller.  But I’m loving this melon so much that I think I am actually a melon baller, if you will.  Eatin’ melon the flyyyyyy way… (You’re welcome.  You know you’re going to have this song in your head all day.)

I also had a hearty serving of all-natural peeb and some totally unnatural popcorn.  It was the last bag of the pack, so hopefully I’ll swing for something more natural next time!

Lastly (sorry… long post… too many saved words from the weekend?), I have not only been eating, but I’ve been eaten.  I have soooooo many verrrrrry itchy bug bites from the cookout this weekend.  It’s driving me bonkers!

What’s the best thing you’ve eaten lately?  Is that song in your head yet???

  11. I never was a hot dog person, but I had a bite of an organic beef dog yesterday, and I started craving the Pigs in a Blanket from my youth…

  12. Love “kid” meals. So simple but satisfying too!! Do you put PB on the popcorn? I tried that the other day with my kids and they loved it =)

  13. That song gets stuck in my head AT LEAST once a week. And the best thing I’ve eaten lately is the cranberry granola I got in your giveaway box ;D LOVE IT.

  14. I just bought my first cantaloupe of the year this morning. I am a bit behind on the summer melon craze. Last week I bought a 23.15 pound watermelon and had to eat it all by myself. Definite melon baller over here.

  15. Steamed brussel sprouts for lunch. I ate for two, as Grandpa does not have the little cabbage on his list of “My favorite foods.” In fact, think it’s not on his list at all. So I love them for both of us 🙂

    Glad your day is going better.

    Take care ~ Michele

  19. Thank youuuu for totally intensifying the lingering popcorn craving that’s been following me around all week 😛 I’m going to have to get my hands on some stat. And I go through melons so fast that I don’t even bother cutting them up nicely. I just split them in half, scoop out the seeds, and get to work 😀

  20. Ah….I have melon in my fridge too – I suppose that it makes me a melon baller too (lol!) Best thing I’ve had recently – I’ve recently been hooked on avocados!
