What I Ate Wednesday: Snack on this

Move that body: Intermittent upper body workout

I had a bowl of cereal for breakfast this morning. A mix of Kashi Cinnamon Harvest and Peanut Butter Puffins with a half-banana, sliced, and 1% milk. It tasted so great. So, so great.

And I wish it hadn't.

Why? While cold cereal is oh so yummy, it has no staying power with me. I could eat a giant bowl and be hungry a half-hour later. When I eat a portion-controlled bowl, I am lucky if I make it that long. It's disastrous - today, I blew threw nearly half my points plus allotment before heading to lunch. Good thing Mark talked his mom into making baked chicken and veggies for dinner instead of the usual pasta she serves when we're invited for a meal.

Given that I've been so snacky this a.m., I thought I'd do something different for What I Ate Wednesday and show you just the snacks.

In the morning, in the car, after dropping off Miles at day care ...

 Nasty SnackWell's bar (it tasted like diet food, if you know what I mean) and a honeycrisp apple.

At my desk, after lunch ...

Pumpkin fluff (No, I don't really have a desk outside. I  was just trying to be fancy.)

At my desk, in the afternoon ...

Kraft Tomato Basil Cheese Stick (I'm still undecided on these), an ugly tangerine and an Annie's fruit snack (found on clearance in the Halloween section at Kroger)

After dinner, while watching "Wheel of Fortune" ...

A "Just Pretend It's a Banana Split" Bowl - Strawberries, sliced bananas, Nutella, fat-free Redi Whipp and a crushed pecan. I didn't avoid the ice cream, per se; I was just looking for a way to eat Nutella.

What's your favorite snack?


  1. I so heart pumpkin fluff! I need to dig out the recipe

  2. Whats pumpkin fluff and can you make it in other flavors other than pumpkin? It looks like ice cream in the pic!

  3. pumpkin fluff? I have never heard of this!

    Maybe because I live on a rock...

    Can you share how you make it? Sounds like heaven!

  4. Pumpkin fluff - I know you've told us how, but I forget and agree with Nessa (pretty please tell us again). YUM!

    My fav snack - hmmmm, I'm not a big snacker - I like the powered cocoa and mint cocoa almonds I guess. They give me a chocolate taste and a crunch.

  5. I love this line : "I was just looking for a way to eat nutella" ;) I wonder if it would be good with pumpkin fluff??
