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  eats 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

I posted on Facebook the other day that I made these cookies and got a lot of requests for the recipe… WELL i have a confession. I made these with 2 ingredients.

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 desperate measures.

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

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

WIAW

Day late…Dollar short. Story of my life! But since It’s What I ate Wednesday I thought I’d show you what I REALLY did eat on Wednesday!

Breakfast:

1/4 cup cooked quinoa, 1/4 cup raisins, 1/2 smashed banana, 1 cup unsweetened almond milk, 1 tbs slivered almonds, cinnamon and agave

Lunch:

Vegan Mac and Cheese Casserole and Vegetable Soup

Dinner:

Morning Star “Chicken” Patty w/ ketchup on sandwich thin – Apple sliced with peanut flour sauce

Dessert:

NOTHING exciting! I came home SO hungry last night that I almost ate the lunch I had for dinner too. That would’ve been pretty to share.

I’m also still mildly addicted to pinterest. Yesterday I made another monogram for our bedroom.

I drew a block-letter k on a 11×17 piece of white cardstock. Then I glued the buttons on one-by-one and overlapped some to give it a 3-d effect.

Love it 🙂

Outfit:

Awkward picture.

Yellow Cardigan: H&M

Brown Tank: Nordstrom

Jeans: True Religion

Headband: Forever 21

Necklace: Nordstrom

I skipped my workout yesterday but need to get on it today – I have a LONG weekend of fun ahead of me 🙂

Questions: Do you put ketchup on your “chicken” patties? I would never eat it with grilled chicken but it seems right to me when it’s breaded.
