WIAW: The Start of Christmas

by Brittany on December 18, 2013

Happy What I Ate Wednesday!

This week is a true “hump” day for me since we work Friday this week.  

Who’s ready for some time off at Christmas?? *raises hand*

We are trying to clean out the fridge with our eats this week so we have plenty of room for holiday stuff.


I’m back to smoothies.

It’s weird.  Even though it is SUPER cold out here, all my tummy wants is a smoothie.


Today was my work’s Christmas party.  Our awesome boss took us out to eat at Sake Blue for hibachi and sushi.

They were awesome to accommodate my GF and dairy free diet!

I got salmon, vegetables, and steamed rice.

Seriously, I have an awesome boss!  She spoils us pretty rotten.


I ate a ton of baby carrots while making dinner last night.

Leftover pasta and spaghetti squash with our Almost Homemade Pasta Sauce and Tera’s Turkey Meatballs.

Luvy loved it.

For the past 2 nights, Luvy and I have been drinking kombucha at night.  I think it is helping to settle my tummy before bed.

What have you been eating here lately?

Anyone else have work Christmas parties?

What’s on your Christmas menu??

Had a smoothie for a morning snack today =) What kind is yours? It looks tasty.


Alex @ therunwithin December 18, 2013 at 8:17 am

yum dinner looks really amazing!


Danica @ It's Progression December 18, 2013 at 8:18 am

We’re in that same mode right now – eat up all perishables before leaving town for Christmas! The closer we get to our traveling date, the more interesting our meals become :)

I’ve been LOVING smoothies too! I’m more about having them for lunch than breakfast lately though. I did have one for dinner the other day…I didn’t really feel like making myself anything else and figured at least I could pack a bunch of nutrients in to a small space and get my feeling better!


Jana @ Happy Wife Healthy Life December 18, 2013 at 9:10 am

I have been enjoying smoothies too even though it is so cold! Usually I eat them while wrapped in a blanket, ha!


Amanda @ .running with spoons. December 18, 2013 at 9:58 am

So.many.cookies! :lol: With all the holiday baking and recipe testing that I’ve been doing, I have to admit that I’ve been seeing more than my fair share of sweet treats… But I guess ’tis the season, right?


Caitlin December 18, 2013 at 10:15 am

Your dinner looks AMAZING! I love spaghetti squash with turkey meatballs and extra veg power. I have Friday off so I guess that my humpday took place at some point late yesterday maybe?


Samantha December 18, 2013 at 11:01 am

Weird! I am totally craving a smoothie too and it is way to cold. This season my eating has been more off, that is probably why. :)


GiGi Eats Celebrities December 18, 2013 at 12:23 pm

Your boss does sound amazing as that salmon looks LEGIT – you are an awesome boss to your stomach! What a delicious day :D


Laura @ Live, Run, Sparkle December 18, 2013 at 1:11 pm

Your meals look awesome! I bought a spaghetti squash the other day and we’re having it for dinner tomorrow night. Its such an awesome alternative to pasta, and I love that I can have seconds without the guilt.


Brittany December 30, 2013 at 1:21 pm

Spaghetti squash is awesome!! :) It is def guilt free.. unless you are like me and are turning orange from all the squash you eat this time of year. ;)


Hannah @ CleanEatingVeggieGirl December 18, 2013 at 1:24 pm

I have been drinking smoothies like crazy too! They make me EXTRA cold, but I am still REALLY craving them for some reason.


Kaitlin December 18, 2013 at 3:26 pm

Aw hope your tummy feels better soon! I’m a fan of smoothies and ice cream in any type of weather :) Even the cold stuff.


Maria @ Little Miss Cornucopia December 18, 2013 at 4:15 pm

i like to drink kombucha at night too! :) my tummy loves it too!


Jess December 18, 2013 at 4:43 pm

I just finished a blueberry smoothie for breakfast! So tasty! But it is summer here! I love japanese! Actually it would probably be good for you as they don’t use a lo of gluten or dairy!!! :)


Matt @ Runner Savvy December 18, 2013 at 7:56 pm

I’m off Friday and Monday :)


Danielle @ LabelsAreForTinCans December 18, 2013 at 9:41 pm

I’m back on the smoothie train too! (And cold chia puddings) Who knows!


Serena Marie RD December 18, 2013 at 9:58 pm

My tastebuds are weird this week too!! In revolt of the normal Christmas themed flavors (gingerbread…nutmeg…other normal things), I’m craving curry!!!

That salmon looks awesome! It always hits the spot!!


Brittany December 30, 2013 at 1:22 pm

mmm… I’m always craving curry!! ;)


Arman @ thebigmansworld December 19, 2013 at 4:11 am

I’m with you on the smoothie in cold weather thing- I actually crave them in Winter over Summer…weird. Stoked to hear your experience at this restaurant was better than your usual one! On the Christmas menu is often alot of seafood and Summery salads here- the joys of Christmas in Summer!
