What I Ate Wednesday Summer 2012

What I Ate… Last Wednesday!

breakfast banana + a big handful of dry cereal (cinnamon oat squares) + coffee + gingerberry kombucha with a shot of ACV and LOTS of ice
snack 1/2 a cuke’s worth of cucumber slices while making veggie burgers
lunch a super tasty triple-bean veggie burger + side salad with more veggies 
snack a bowl of cherries + another banana
dinner savory stuffed sweet potato + asparagus spears
dessert yogi tea + a handful of dark choc chips

As always, I drank lots and lots of water all day long — I think there was a second cup of black coffee that snuck in the lineup as well.  I can’t be certain… Ok Ok it did! =)  And I loved it!

Hookay soo… Last week I mentioned that I’d share a few favorite summer tunes with you guys as part of our summer staples shenanigans.  Disclaimer: I listen to anything and everything… but I’m a dirty little hipster at heart, I can’t help myself.  Think of this as the type of summer playlist you listen to while sprawled out face-down on the beach with a microbrew or while driving around aimlessly on an uber hot day.  It’s very chill, unlike the Pitbull and 50Cent I shake it to in Zumba.


Sublime “Doin’ Time”
Imagine Dragons “It’s Time”
Modest Mouse “Dashboard”
Sublime “Badfish”
The Shins “New Slang”
The Shins “Sea Legs”
Passion Pit “Take a Walk”
Two Door Cinema Club “What You Know”
Death Cab For Cutie “Summer Skin”
Death Cab For Cutie “Soul Meets Body”
OK GO “1000 Miles Per Hour”
Vampire Weekend “Cousins”
The Shins “Australia”

Can you PLEASE keep going on with that playlist? I’m loving it so far…


Cucumbers are definitely a summer staple at our house!  They are actually the highlight of this WIAW ;).  Love your playlist.  Death cab for cutie…it’s been awhile since I listened to their songs…that has to change

Cinnamon oat squares? As in Quaker Oat Squares?! Omg, I’ve officially banned myself from those! Can’t stop thrusting handfuls into my mouth!!! It’s sad…really sad.

Hold me to it…I’m making your cuc cups THIS week! I have like 4 HUUUUUUGE cucumbers in my fridge just dying to become something fabulous and I need to do something before they croak! Oh yeah, and I’m also making that zucchini cucumber tzatziki dip thing too! 😀

Gingerberry kombucha AND apple cider vinegar – you are a girl after my own heart. 🙂 


Love the playlist! My music taste has never reflected my milk-toast girl personna. I went through a punk phase and am currently stuck in 2006 with alternative indie. Love it!

Nikki @ Life After Swimming

Absolutely in love with your musical choices 🙂
