First things first, I want to apologize to those of you who subscribe via email to my blog. With the blog move over to the new host, I’m not 100% sure if your subscriptions made the move or not. If not, I’m sorry that it happened. But, you can resubscribe by just entering your email address in the area to the right. Thanks!


Happy Wednesday everyone! Today is another installment of What I Ate Wednesday. Head over to Peas and Crayons to join in on the fun! After a weekend full of weird/random/not-so-healthy eating, I was craving veggies today!


I made a batch of overnight oats since it’s WAYYYY too hot for oatmeal. Boston got up to the 80′s again today. Added to today’s mix is a dash of cinnamon, strawberries, crunchy Barney Butter, and granola. With a big glass of water on the side, it was a filling breakfast.




Lunch was a Greek salad with baby greens, cucumber, tomato, and feta. I also had a passion fruit Chobani and some Cascadian Farm multi grain squares. Don’t mind my name on my Chobani – it happens when you live with three other girls who all love Chobani and buy it regularly.

A mini Larabar that I snagged from the Marathon expo on Saturday. I’ve never had the coconut flavor before and I like it!



I’ve been craving a new and creative recipe for pasta for a while now. I’m a carb girl through and through, but spaghetti with red sauce and ravioli gets old real fast. I saw this recipe for creamy butternut squash pasta on Chelcie’s blog a little while ago and it looked so yummy and easy, I HAD to try it!

The verdict? It was AMAZING! Easy, creamy, and delicious. Win, win, win. I used whole wheat penne and plain hummus and it was delicious.

While I waited for dinner to finish cooking, I blogged and drank a chocolate protein powder drink. Protein powder+ice+water. Yum.

Yuck, I need a manicure!


Anyway – so that was my day of eats! Tell me about yours! Any recipes you’re loving now? Have you ever try a fellow blogger’s recipes to find out that it’s just as delicious as you thought?

Seriously – I was skeptical, but it was delicious.

That pasta looks amazing! I have a butternut squash that was waiting for a fun new recipe, might have to try it! Your overnight oats sound really good, too. I keep forgetting to set it up the night before and end up cooking some in the morning, but you’re right- it’s definitely getting too warm for that!

Mmm that pasta does look great lady! I love the idea of adding the squash.. I don’t have pasta too often but want to give this a go :)
