#WIAW no. 11: Healthy Eats & Birthday Treats

Hi darlins'! It's great to see ya here!

This week eats for What I Ate Wednesday are from Matt's birthday on Monday. I noshed & snacked all healthy-like during the day so we could indulge in some serious birthday treats that evening :)

Here are the goods:

Breakfast: a cup of green tea with a 3-egg, chicken breakfast scramble.

Snack #1: one super ripe Georgia peach

Snack #2: a small handful of roasted & salted pistachios

Lunch: a flour burrito wrap with homemade garlic pesto hummus, quinoa tabouli, chicken & baby spinach

Dinner: a couple slices of Jet's 8-Corner Ham + Onion Pizza with a Bell's Two Hearted Ale to wash it all down (all Matt's favorite things!)

Birthday Dessert: a few made-from-scratch brownies (this batch was fully-loaded with crushed up kit-kats, hershey's cookies & cream chocolate bars and regular milk chocolate chips) -- a.k.a. chocolate heaven!

When planning my snacks I tend to shop for things that are either the cheapest or will last the longest. I always flip through my local ad before heading to the grocery store to find out what produce is on sale and lately I've been really digging on pistachios and nut mixes just because they keep so well and are so gosh darned delicious! The peach in the above photo was a gift from Matt's mom (free is always best!).

What staple snack item(s) do you always put on your shopping list? bananas & carrots!

Thanks for reading! For more tantalizing eats, check out other WIAW posts at Peas & Crayons.


  1. Pizza + Beer = Mmmmm! Gotta love Bell's Two Hearted. :)

    1. Bell's doesn't distribute to Nashville unfortunately so this was a super special treat for Mattie :)

  2. I've never thought to throw in all different sorts of candy in my brownies. Great idea.. and sounds incredible!

  3. Piano keys on the brownies? So cute!

    1. just hershey's cookies n' creme minis + kit kat minis, the boyfriend is obsessed with pianos ;)

    2. What a great idea! I didn't think they were ACTUAL piano keys hehe

  4. OOH! Garlic pesto hummus?? I'm headed to check out that recipe!
