WIAW & Oatmeal Pumpkin Cookies

So now that Wednesday’s officially over (well in 3 hours, but I’ll be long asleep by then) I can show you my ┬áeats of the day. As usual I’m linking up with Jenn over at Peas and Crayons! If you haven’t joined in the Wednesday fun – feel free to do so!

Breakfast: 2 slices of topless pumpkin spice bread w/ homemade pumpkin cream cheese

Snack: Apple (picked by me!)

Lunch: Romaine, Artichoke Hearts, Cucumbers, Carrots, Red Onion, Roasted Red Peppers, Tomatoes & Vegetarian Chicken Patty w/ a drizzle of BBQ sauce

Snack: Popcorn

Dinner: Healthy Chipotle knockoff – Brown rice w/ lime juice and cilantro, Grilled chicken flavored with taco seasoning, chopped jalapeno, chopped tomatoes, chopped onions, black beans, corn, cheddar cheese, dollop of greek yogurt and avocado slice

Dessert: 2 Oatmeal Pumpkin Cookies

No butter, no oil, no eggs…Just the mix and pumpkin. I know, that’s cheating. But it’s good…and when you don’t keep cookies in your house and you are craving one badly you take┬ádesperate┬ámeasures.

This was one of the tastiest desperate measures I’ve ever taken.

QUESTIONS: Do you ever use cake or cookie packages? Admit it!!!
