What I Ate Wednesday #7

Leave a comment

First, as always, thanks to Jenn at Peas and Crayons for hosting WIAW!

I was home sick today for the third day in a row with a double ear infection, sinus infection, and a cough that just won’t quit. This is the point where I start to go stir crazy. I’m actually looking forward to going back to work tomorrow – which I will do, cough or not!

I really didn’t eat meals per se – I pretty much just snacked on stuff as I got hungry at different points during the day. I had half of a toasted Udi’s gluten-free bagel this morning with some low fat cream cheese. (I didn’t bother taking a picture of that). A little while later, I had a banana. I didn’t bother with that either.

When it got to be around lunchtime, I reheated what was left of the soup I made last night for dinner. It tasted just as good as it did last night – which was AMAZING! You can find the recipe for this yummy Creamy Mushroom Brie White Bean Soup here.

Later in the afternoon, I started getting a little hungry, so I broke out my new version of cheese and “crackers”.

Then a little while before dinner, I wanted something sweet. I remembered that I got this sample pack of Funky Monkey fruit snacks in my December KlutchClub box…

Definitely interesting – sweet, but a little bit tart from the lime. Definitely crunchy. I liked it – but I’m curious to see what other flavors they have. It only had 110 calories, so not bad for an afternoon snack!

Dinner was a burrito bowl from Chipotle that hubby was kind enough to bring home for me. I didn’t bother taking a picture of that either. Hey – what can I say? I’m sick. Forgive me. 🙂

I promise to do better next time around. Just didn’t have much energy to do much of anything today. I even thought about making soup this afternoon, but just ran out of steam. I have a butternut squash and apple soup recipe just waiting to be made…hopefully that will happen for dinner tomorrow!

What are your favorite things to munch on when you don’t really want a meal?
