WTF Wednesday!

Why hello dears, happy Wednesday! As usual, I work until 9 tonight so I'm going to do a quick post before I jet out the door (in like 10 mins :X) and I'll catch up on your posts tonight!

For breakfast I had another bowl of oats. Today's oats were topped with a half of a banana, and a sprinkling of walnuts and shredded coconut. SO good.

For lunch I packed up some carrots, dolma and an avocado and tomato salad made with the other half of my avocado from yesterday. It stayed nice and green, thanks lemon juice!!

I roasted up my brussels sprouts and cauliflower  from Trader Joe's this morning and packed it up with the rest of my sesame tofu from Whole Foods for a quick dinner.

This photo is for Shen who is always confused by my food touching rules :) I decided to save my leftover veggies in one container...but I found one with a divide that happens to fit the leftovers perfectly and I thought Shen might get a kick out of it. I honestly didn't care if the veggies touched but it was really just amusing to do it this way.

I just wanted to show this pic because I think it is hilarious.  My boss found a podcast demonstrating this cool effect with a fisheye lens and a ring light so we were testing it out yesterday and I love the way it looks. We all now have a ridiculous picture of us as our desktop on our giant screens at work. It is a bit scary because the shots are not the most flattering (which is why I posted this one and not that one hahaha) but I just thought I'd share. Yes, I wear glasses when I use the computer and I can't stop staring at the one brown spot in my blue eyes. :)

Anyway, hope you all enjoyed this quick post. Have a great hump day!


  1. Yea, hump day! I don't mind if my food touches. In fact, I like to mix all my food together on my plate. Mmmm...

    That fisheye picture is freaky! Did you always have a brown spot on your blue eye? My eye color changed as I got older from dark brown to a yellowy gold. I must be a vampire. :)

    On an unrelated note, I saw in your bio that you love Halloween. I'd like to see a post about what kinds of Halloween candy/treats you eat.

  2. All the food looks great, but I'm drawn to your lunch colorful and those big chunks of avocado look so good!

  3. I will cooking up my brussel sprouts this evening! A delicious day, for sure! Also, thank you for the idea of overnight oats with blueberries in a smoothie - I will absolutely be making one in the next few days.

    I noticed no mention of a sniffle or headache - does this mean you're all better?!

  4. Well, it's obvious why you can't have the Brussel Sprouts touching the Cauliflower. I'm not a complete idiot.

    So it's your boss who comes up with these 'Alice in Wonderland' wedding photo ideas?

  5. Hellooooo ladies! :)

    Sage - I am very picky about when my food touches. A lot of the time I'll pair fruit as a side for a savory meal and that is mostly when I can't stand my food touching. I don't mind if veggies touch or fruit with other fruit. It is a case by case basis :) I've only just recently noticed the brown spot in my eye. I have no clue how long it has been there and it is just one speck in one eye. That is a great idea, I'll do a whole Halloween post sometime in October!

    Rose - Thanks! Lunch was really yummy! I'm really loving avocado recently.

    Ingrid - My brussels sprouts came out great. I season with only garlic and pepper. How do you season yours? Yes I'm finally feeling better, thanks! Back to the gym tomorrow ;)

    Shen - LOL! Well he just started using the idea, I guess whoever made the podcast he saw came up with it? Who knows, I just think it looks hilarious!

  6. I could live on Bobo's oat bars for the rest of my life. Seriously, soooooo good.

    PS - banana/coconut/walnut oats is my favorite way to eat oatmeal.
