WIAW #18: Healthy -ish works for me.

Since I have no super quirky cheesy intro, I would like to start off today’s post with a thank-you. 

Thank-you to everyone who left kind words or even took the time out their day to read Sunday’s post. I began blogging because it was something to occupy my time and as it turns out, it has become a very helpful tool in finding my health and happiness again. Anyways, thanks again for reading my shit.

On that note, today’s What I Ate Wednesday theme pair’s nicely with Sunday’s post.

healthy -ish

Emphasis on the ISH. This is my jam. Seriously. It’s just what works for me.. A salad for lunch a glass bottle of wine for dinner. A slice of pizza with a gigantic salad. Sometimes a skinny latte at starbs, sometimes bring on the full fat.

You catch my vibe? Here is a look at some of the health-ish stuff I’ve been feasting on lately:



The return of the waffle. Not that they ever left but, I’ve been using a new recipe! New recipe coming next week..
Jokes. Here it is:

Buckwheat Waffle 
1 whole egg
1/2 mashed banana
1/4 cup buck wheat flour
2 tbsp North Coast Naturals vanilla protein powder
1/2 tbsp flax
dash of cinnamon and sea salt
1/4 tsp baking powder
a splash of almond milk if needed
blend all ingredients together and pour into waffle maker.

Top with sun butter and smashed blueberries. Yesssir.

Milk + Cookies. THESE chocolate chip oatmeal quinoa cookies to be exact. So technically I did make some healthy-ier swaps ingredients wise but the fact of the matter is they still contain fat and sugar in them. Hence health-ish.

If I’m working usually I have a salad. If I’m not working usually I also have a salad. Here is a picture of a home made salad. Greens plus some carbs, cuz sometimes lettuce just doesn’t cut it {aka all the time}

Sometimes you need comfort food. Relax, I put peas and roasted brussels in it people so it’s like, healthy. Annie’s white cheddar boxed mac and cheese. So freaking good.



So Delicious sugar free coconut milk ice cream + a cone. Omggggg does anyone eat these anymore? I know they’re like, not gluten free but they taste like christmas people. Ditch the bowl, say yes to the cone.

Until next wedz..

  7. Ice cream cones topped with sprinkles is the only way to go! :) BTW, that waffle looks awesome. I’ve made buckwheat waffles/pancakes before, but never added a banana. Sounds like a fantastic idea. Thanks tons for sharing the recipe.

  8. I had mac and cheese for dinner last night — so, SO good. And I always go the cone route when it comes to ice cream. That last bite is pure heaven.
