Thanks for joining me again with another What I Ate Wednesday post! I can see that many people find it helpful when I post these so I am going to try to do them more often 🙂

This particular day I had some homemade frozen protein waffles in my little dorm freezer so I nuked those and topped them with banana and fruity cheerios so I can taste some rainbow and be ever so happy ❤

My 11:10 Psychology class was canceled this entire week so I have been enjoying the fact I have time to make and enjoy a decent lunch. I had a whole wheat bagel (please don’t get me started on bagel thins…. if you are gonna have a bagel, have the real deal) with turkey, garlic herb cheese plus bell pepper & hummus! Very satisfying and a good balance of carbs, proteins, and a lil fat 🙂Not too long after, I had some slices of dried mango because I have a major sweet tooth if you can’t tell! I have a lab from 1:30-4 on Mondays so I make sure I eat enough to keep me going.

 If I go home over the weekend, I sometimes take a home-cooked meal back with me just because the dining hall doesn’t cook like momma does. I had some baked Mahi Mahi with a little over a cup of quinoa & chickpeas, vegetables, and a rice cake smeared with coconut butter.

Verdict: YES. SO GOOD. The best way to describe this is having the same consistency of butter but a little more firm in the jar. It has a much stronger coconutty aroma than coconut oil  because this also contains part of the pulp of the coconut making it super thick too 😀 I love it because it melts in your mouth and is a really simple way to get some healthy fats in. Yes, despite what you hear, coconut is VERY good for you. It’s crazy to think I used to be cautious of it because of the fat content… do your research people. Your body needs a substantial amount of fats in your diet and this is about as pure as it comes.

Ya know me, I’m a bottomless pit ;D Just ask my roommate, she would confirm the fact that I eat like every 2 hours and my snacks be like meals. That’s how I roll and it works for me. I like to wind down by watching a little Netflix if I don’t have to study. I had a bowl of greek yogurt with cinnamon + blueberries with my FAVORITE G2G bar! If you all want to taste the best natural protein bar out there you can order it here: https://good2gobar.com/

You can also use my code: YUMMY for 20% off at checkout! No, I am not making money from this. They wouldn’t make any money giving me a discount to give you all AND to give me a share of it. I’m jus’ being a kind soul and spreading the infinite amount of bliss that comes within this bar. Let me know if you guys try them out 🙂

That about wraps up this full day of eating.

So tell me…

Have you had coconut butter before? Thoughts?

What snack will you never get tired of?

    I actually don’t think I have ever had coconut butter! Is it sweet like pb? Those dried mangos are so good! I used to always get them at Starbucks 🙂

    Never tried coconut butter actually! I am a bit curious but I feel as if it would taste a bit too much like coconut oil, eh? Anyways, the frozen protein waffle sounds like such a good idea, and I’ll definitely check out that G2G bar!

  4. I’ve never had coconut butter before, but a snack I’ll never get tired of is rice cakes! There are so many combinations to try! Right now I’m on a hummus kick but I also love protein powder frosting, cream cheese, pumpkin, and peanut butter!

    I just found a jar of coconut butter in my pantry and so I made avocado fudge using it. I quite enjoy the taste! I must try it on toast or my scones. That sounds great!

    I’ve never had coconut butter before, but I’ve been wanting to try it! And a snack I’ll never get tired of is cottage cheese. It’s such a weird snack for a teenage girl but I love it!
