First July [WIAW]

07/06/2011 at 8:53 am 58 comments

Hope everyone had a fun filled 4th of July. I got to see lots of these

It was a lot of fun to be with my family and hang out watching the gorgeous fireworks.

Today is another installment of WIAW!

Peas and CrayonsLink up with Jenn over at Peas and Crayons and post your noms

The best meal of the day begins with breakfast!

Cinnamon Burst Cheerios, strawberries, and yogurt drenched in almond milk Smile

Lunch took me back to my childhood

My dad made me a malanga porridge. When I was little or sick my dad would make this for me. It was delicious, I think the butter does the trick Winking smile

Dinner was especially unique! After showing my boyfriend this awesome spiralizer online, he bought one and we made raw zucchini. I’m convinced you don’t need to cook zucchini after I tasted this!

Raw zucchini with grilled chicken topped with pasta sauce and parmesan. Always need a good amount of cheese

I never show my night time desserts because I’m too lazy to photograph at night but what the hell, I’ll show you

This is pretty much a daily ritual. Cottage cheese, yogurt, strawberries, chocolate cheerios, Emerald cocoa roasted almonds, honey, and peanut butter. It was win peeps…Down to the last bite!

Well there you have it. I know you all ate some way tasty treats this past weekend with the holiday and all.

So do tell, what was the best thing you ate all weekend? Smile

  • 6. keepnthefaith  |  07/06/2011 at 9:13 am

  • 7. leashieloo  |  07/06/2011 at 9:21 am

  • 9. Kelly @ Laughter, Strength, and Food  |  07/06/2011 at 10:13 am

    I love that you had Cheerios! I am a total cereal junkie and Cheerios is one of my favorites! šŸ™‚

  • 10. Allie  |  07/06/2011 at 10:42 am

    I want to hear more about this porridge! The best thing I ate this weekend was ice cream!!

  • 11. IHeartVegetables  |  07/06/2011 at 10:43 am

    I totally have that plate!!! (The white one with the black squiggles!) I don’t know where it came from (It was my ex boyfriends, he just gave it to me, haha) That’s so random!

    Best thing I ate… probably the frozen yogurt I ate on Monday!

  • 12. Lisa (The Novice Nosher)  |  07/06/2011 at 10:50 am

    I definitely need to try zucchini noodles now, I’ve been seeing a lot of posts on it and it sounds delicious! I like the idea of getting my veggies in such an easy way.

  • 13. Ari@ThE DiVa DiSh  |  07/06/2011 at 10:51 am

    I want a spiral thingy šŸ™‚ I am jealous!
    And I love your dessert choice! especially the big spoonful of PB:)

  • 14. Shanna, like Banana  |  07/06/2011 at 10:53 am

    Seeing those cinn cheerios totally made me want them — and I don’t’ even normally like Cheerios!

    Best thing I ate probably was a super delish macaroon

  • 15. Rachel @ The Avid Appetite  |  07/06/2011 at 11:00 am

    Love the zucchini-pasta idea! I really need to get one of those contraptions šŸ™‚

  • 16. Amanda @ Running with Spoons  |  07/06/2011 at 11:07 am

    Ahh I love fireworks, but my dog is absolutely terrified of them, so I felt kind of bad for her this weekend lol.

    It was definitely a weekend of good eats, though. My favorite was probably vanilla ice cream topped with chocolate chips, or maybe the grilled corn on the cob šŸ˜€

  • 17. fashionfitnessfoodie  |  07/06/2011 at 11:09 am

    mmm chocolate cheerios sound so good right about now! I’ve been loving cereal combos. I seriously need a spiralizer! Best thing I ate was fro-yo and cupcake šŸ™‚

  • 18. Lisa @ Healthy Diaries  |  07/06/2011 at 11:18 am

    The best thing I ate this weekend definitely was my mom’s cheesecake! She only makes it a few times a year so I savored every since bite!

  • 19. Hollie @ Lolzthatswim(andRun)  |  07/06/2011 at 12:01 pm

    Jealous. It was pouring rain so we didn’t get to see any fireworks. So sad. The best thing I have eaten all week is the chickfila chicken biscuit I just had this morning traveling sadly. Nothing too exciting oh boo.

  • 20. Lauren  |  07/06/2011 at 12:20 pm

    Oooh, that spiralizer looks so fun! I had so much good 4th of July food. Watermelon, cream soda, bratwurst, potato salad, chickpea burgers. It was the perfect holiday food šŸ™‚

  • 21. Alexis - PumpedforPumpkin  |  07/06/2011 at 12:24 pm

    yum! Loving the bed time snack. It’s my new favorite by the way šŸ˜€ I love cinnamon burst cherrios! Theyre delicious

  • 22. Tara  |  07/06/2011 at 12:38 pm

    I eat the same dessert! I love to throw in raisins though. Nothing beats a good ol’ yogurt/cottage cheese mess!
    Best thing I ate was watermelon postworkout smoothie. I never thought that watermelon would taste good in a protein shake, but it was fabulous!

  • 23. Cara @ ChicMeetsHealthy  |  07/06/2011 at 1:01 pm

    i am so afraid of cottage cheese!!! i like all your toppings though! i still need to try adding yogurt to my cereal in the morning!

  • 24. Andrea @ Vegvacious  |  07/06/2011 at 1:04 pm

    I’ve never tried raw zucchini like that before but it looks delish!! Your breakfast and snack bowls are always amazing!! I had too many amazing eats to narrow it down this past wkd — oh the joys of a holiday weekend!

  • 25. Tiff  |  07/06/2011 at 1:12 pm

    I love zucchini, and I love pasta – I bet I’d love that. Where did you get it? I’m headed over to Amazon now! (i’m such an Amazon nerd; it’s my go-to retailer)

  • 26. Parita @ myinnershakti  |  07/06/2011 at 1:25 pm

    Hope you had a great 4th, Jenny!! That zucchini pasta looks delicious. Hmm…I’m not sure if I can pick a favorite meal I ate over the weekend, but by far one of the best was a scallop dish my uncle made. Amazing! I’ll most likely post it soon. šŸ™‚

  • 34. Chelsea @ One Healthy Munchkin  |  07/06/2011 at 9:41 pm

    I really want a spiralizer so that I can do that with my zucchini! Especially now that we’re starting to pick the zucchini at the farm where I work!

    The best thing I ate all weekend was a yogurt mess with honey Greek yogurt. I’m obsessed with that stuff!

  • 40. Stephanie  |  07/07/2011 at 3:19 pm

    Your raw zucchini pasta is making me hungry! I haven’t made that in ages, but I don’t have a spirulizer so I just make it with a carrot peeler. Honestly, it doesn’t taste the same when it doesn’t look right! Yours is lovely.

  • 41. Baking Serendipity  |  07/07/2011 at 3:45 pm

    Gorgeous firework pictures! And I love the zucchini dish! How healthy and cool is that?!

  • 42. Sweet Cheeks  |  07/07/2011 at 4:11 pm

    spiralizers are so fun! I actually havent used mine for quite a while so you better believe i’m going to whip it out very soon now!

  • 43. char on a mission  |  07/07/2011 at 5:43 pm

    I’d love to get a spiralizer! Zucchini is the bomb-diggity any way in my opinion lol.

    Awesome eats you had!!

  • 54. Alexandra (Veggin' Out in the Kitchen)  |  07/10/2011 at 10:31 pm

    Glad you had a good 4th!! šŸ˜€
    Isn’t zucchini pasta the best?! It’s strange because I normally can’t stand raw zucchini, but when it’s drenched in pasta sauce, I LOVE it! šŸ™‚
    I need to try your dessert!! It looks wonderful!
    Best thing I ate? Probably Chocolate Covered Katie’s fudge brownies! šŸ˜€
