Happy WIAW!

Wait…Is it seriously June 27th already?! Have I really been out of school for almost a month already? That is so insane, I want my summer to slow down and last forever. I don’t want to go back to school. I want to continue to go on bike rides along Santa Monica and go to the beach whenever I please. 


(Before going biking with my typical picture face :p)

Alright so now that I have depressed you guys about the fact that summer is slowly dwindling, I better bring your moods up by reminding you that it’s WIAW!


My eats were particularly unique this week (for me). I have always hated tomatoes, unless they came in the form of ketchup or marinara sauce. But the thought of eating a tomato slice or just popping a grape tomato in my mouth actually disgusted me. So last week I decided to re-try tomatoes and find out if I actually still hate them, and I was suprised to find that they aren’t as bad as I thought. It’s so weird how your taste buds can learn to like a certain taste. You’ll notice that I incorporated tomato slices onto my lunch this week, aren’t you proud? 😉

Breakfast: Trader Joe’s Raisin Bran Clusters with almond milk and Fage Greek yogurt


Lunch: An apple, a portabello mushroom smeared with avocado and topped with tomato slices, and a black bean burger with swiss cheese, avocado, and tomato slices.


Afternoon Snack: Oat bran with pumpkin, cinnamon, and walnuts


Dinner: Lentils with mashed up Trader Joes Meatless Meatballs, and veggies on top (I’m showing you two pics: before I put the veggies on and then after, because the veggies pretty much dominate the picture)


What foods do you hate (or think you hate)? Would you be willing to re-try them and see if your tastes have changed?

  1. I hate mushrooms and I dislike beef. I would be willing to try beef (I try at least a few times a year) but not mushrooms! I love the idea of a black bean burger – did you make it from scratch or buy it?

  2. Oat bran with pumpkin, cinnamon, and walnuts?!?! Yum. This looks awesome. I love the idea of adding pumpkin to oatmeal or other breakfast items. I’m with you about not wanting to go back. You made me realize it is almost July. Though I don’t have a beach to miss.

  3. I think I hate brussel sprouts and that is about it haha I’m pretty much down to eat anything. I could go for retrying them I guess. I can’t really remember what they taste like since I ate them when I was little.

    • Yeah fish is one of those tastes that seems like it’s either love or hate! Even though I’m a vegetarian now, I remember that it took me a while to adjust to the taste of fish.
      Thank you so much, that is so sweet of you! 😀

  4. Eats look great! And yum, there’s that oat bran bowl! It looks great ❤ I totally agree with you on the whole summer thing btw, I can't believe how fast it is going. Keep on having fun!!!
