What I Ate Wednesday: Monster Date or Date Monster

Posted Sep 07 2011 5:00am

Morning Sunshines!  Glad you liked the PB banana almond milk freeze on yesterday’s post …and thanks for the great tips on what to do with ripe naners!
It’s time again for What.I.Ate.Wednesday!  They weeks fly by don’t they?!

If you’re reading this and haven’t heard of WIAW make sure to hop over to Peas & Crayons to check out the details :)

This really is “what I ate Tuesday” of course…

My morning started off a little hectic: dropped my son off at school at 8:10, doctor’s appointment at 8:20, was supposed to  drop off my younger son at school at 8:45 but was running a little late. 

Oh and the doctor’s appointment for me (annual physical deal) involved a fasting blood test for cholesterol — so not only was the morning hectic, I was running on empty.  Me + no breakfast = no bueno

When I got home I inhaled a couple of these… similar to krispy treats … I’ll post the recipe later!

Then I had a monster date (or date monster…doesn’t it look like a little monster?) filled with peanut butter… I swear I heard it say…


The peanut butter date combo is so good… like eating candy.

Lunch was this krispy chia pudding =)  Basically just chia pudding + brown rice crisps + peanut butter


Snack = baked chickpeas seasoned w/ rice vinegar, sesame soy ginger vinaigrette, and cayenne pepper.




Dinner was… tacos!  We have tacos alot around here.  Unfortunately the pics are still on my camera so I’ll have to post them later!  Maybe next WIAW =)

I’m slowly but surely continuing to re-read Wooden: A Lifetime of Observations On and Off the Court , one of my favorite books that I talked about on “ A Few of My Favorite Things ” post.

Last time I shared the list of 7 things to do, the first one being “be true to yourself.”

Wooden’s words on being true to yourself:

If we are not true to ourselves, we cannot be true to others — our wife or husband, our family, our profession, and colleagues.

To me this means to accept yourself fully for who you are without apology, which is something I continue to work on.

I love this quote by Dr. Seuss:

Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don’t matter, and those who matter don’t mind.

Have you struggled with being true to yourself?  Or with doing things just to get approval from others?
