what i ate wednesday: knock on wood

Let’s all do a collective knock on wood, but I think I may have turned a corner with my morning sickness. The food aversions are still strong, I’m still trending toward sugary foods instead of savory ones, and I still don’t have much of an appetite after 3pm, but as far as actually queasiness and…

what i ate wednesday: more of the same

coffeeSigh. I was hoping I'd be able to write some big, happy, excited post this week about how my morning sickness is totally gone, and I'm back to eating like a rockstar—but alas, the progesterone poisoning (a phrase that was coined by one my readers and makes morning sickness sound a lot more evil—which it is) continues. I have had a few good days of recent—where I feel more or less normal for the majority of the day—but those are still. . .

what i ate wednesday: it returns!

breakfastIt's been a long while since I shared a What I Ate Wednesday with you guys (back in August!). If you're new around here, What I Ate Wednesday is a weekly pictorial look into a single day of eating. It's a great way to see what folks are doing for meals and snacks, plus, it's just flat-out fun to get a peek into bloggers' everyday lives through their eats. You can learn more about WIAW here. I really enjoy doing WIAW,. . .

what i ate wednesday: two meals

breakfast eggsOne of my less-than-admirable qualities is that I'm not a good eater when I'm busy. I get on a roll with something (in this example, I was cleaning) and I recognize that I'm hungry, but I just push it aside to keep on doing what I'm doing (sweeping, mopping, dusting). It's not nearly as bad now that I work from home, but there would be some days at work that I'd come home with a lunch box as full as. . .

what i ate wednesday: it’s back!

dinner sandwichEveryone give WIAW a big, warm hug, because it's back from exile! I had to nix WIAW for a while because pretty much what I ate on Wednesdays was entirely made up of secret cookbook recipes. I couldn't very well be showing you all the goodies before even my editor saw the book. But the recipe development part is finished, and now I'm back to eating not-so-secret food. It should come as no surprise that we are eating a whole. . .

what i ate wednesday: in the kitchen

yogurt bowlI'm fully immersed in the recipe development stage of my cookbook. Which means that there is a ton of food being pumped out of our kitchen right now. Thankfully, a lot of the recipes I have planned are freezer-friendly, but still about 1/3 of what I'm making is for fresh-eating only. And considering I'm doing 3-5 recipes a day, that's a lot of food! So our eats for the next few weeks are going to be pretty much entirely made. . .

what i ate wednesday: in season

yogurt bowlWow, I've been MIA from WIAW for a few weeks now, haven't I? Sometimes I get a little burnt out photographing my eats (hence why I can only muster up the energy to do it once a week—if that). But I'm back this week with a rockin' day of eats! We're really trying to focus on eating as hyper local as possible. And to us, that means focusing the majority of our meals around food we've grown ourselves. We're just. . .

what i ate wednesday: summer eats

yogurt bowl breakfastI think summer officially showed up here this week. It's been hot and humid and that means I've been craving summer eats like crazy. I tend to eat much lighter in the summer. Which, you'd think, I'd drop some weight because of it, but I just replace all the heavy foods of winter with beer in the summer. Ha! Balance! I was sitting out on the front porch drinking some coffee and my incredible husband showed up with breakfast! He. . .

what i ate wednesday: intuition

eggs toast apples breakfastHappy Wednesday, my friends! Before we dig into this week’s WIAW, I want to chat for a bit about intuitive eating. Intuitive eating is something I’ve never been good at. In fact, if I could venture a guess, I’d say that the vast majority of folks struggle with it. How could we not after decades of being assaulted by the messaging that we are not supposed to trust our food intuition? Don’t eat this food that you like because it’s. . .
