It’s been a little while since I last shared a What I Ate Wednesday, and since I don’t have a new recipe quite ready for you this week, I thought this would be perfect.
In case you’re new hear, What I Ate Wednesday is my chronicles of what I ate in a day.

Alright, let me show you everything I ate last Wednesday!
Here’s a little vlog of my day:
Keep reading if you prefer text over video!
Our milk wasn’t cooperating (I think it was getting a bit old?), so I made myself some matcha with cream instead of frothed milk.
I also added a bit of homemade vanilla syrup to sweeten it up.
It was kind of lukewarm since I poured a bunch of cold cream into the hot matcha.
But at least I got my matcha fix. ?♀️
Reuben made us some fried eggs, bacon, and hash browns for breakfast.
He’s been cooking us breakfast before he leaves for work lately.
If he leaves before the kids and I eat breakfast, he puts it in the warming drawer.
I’ve been trying to incorporate more protein into my diet.
I found these mini chicken apple sliders at Walmart.
It’s the brand Tribali.
I had some organic riced sweet potatoes in the freezer, and I figured they’d make a nice carby base.
I fried up the frozen sweet potatoes and sliders in a cast iron skillet.
Then I put some Primal Kitchen Chipotle Lime Mayo on top.
I discovered this mayo kind of by accident.
It was on sale, so I gave it a shot.
Turns out it’s actually yummy.
It may not look like a lot of food, but I’m proud of myself for finishing this off after a good sized breakfast.
Sometimes eating three regular meals a day feels like an accomplishment. ?
I’ve been struggling with having a healthy appetite lately. I don’t know if it’s stress or health related.
In the afternoon, I decided to make myself a snack.
I brewed myself a mug of this Traditional Medicinals Reishi mushroom rooibos & orange peel tea.
It isn’t amazing, but it’s caffeine free.
I’ve been trying to incorporate more mushrooms into my diet. I found this podcast episode by Wellness Mama really interesting on the subject of mushrooms.
These einkorn checkerboard cookies from Jovial are the perfect afternoon snack.
They’re just a little bit sweet, but definitely not sickeningly so.
Anya loves them.
Here was my tea + cookie contraption.
The idea was to warm up the cookie as the tea steeped.
I added some cream into my tea as well.
It just feels wrong to not put something fatty into tea!
For supper, I made salmon, potatoes, and veggies.
I kept it simple and baked the salmon with salt and pepper.
I used my new probe thermometer to cook the salmon. 135° F was a little too long in my opinion.
But I think the salmon was less dry than I usually cook it. ?
I pan fried some frozen broccoli in a cast iron skillet.
Then I served it all with some coconut oil roasted potatoes and pumpkin sourdough dinner rolls.
Yep, I’m working on the recipe for those dinner rolls.
Hopefully I can get it out soonish!
I also had a few slices of Starkrimson pears.
If you see Starkrimson pears at your grocery store, I definitely recommend giving them a try! They’re one of my favorites.
So that’s everything I ate in a day!
Leave me a comment letting me know what your favorite afternoon snack is at the moment.
I’d love some new ideas!
