WIAW #13: Happy Birthday, Now Eat Your Veggies

 Pin It
The truth is, I started writing this post about three weeks ago. Such is life. Thanks for the cake, Aunt KiKi!
My issue with birthday cake is that when it's in the house, I eat it. I'm not sure what the husband's issue with cake is, but he's good for a slice right after the candles go out and that's it. He doesn't care a bit for leftover cake. And that leaves you know who to finish off the Pyrex.

Last weekend was A couple of weekends ago, our lives were filled with a lot of birthday cake, in addition to candy-coated and peanut butter-filled eggs. It's an understatement to say this girl needs a break from the sweets. (No, lactation cookies do not count, thank you very much.) So I got myself all excited for April's WIAW challenge, thinking it might be to eat more veggies, as it has been previously in April. Let's be honest: Who doesn't need to eat more vegetables? I know the husband and I definitely do.

But, April isn't eat-more-veggies-month this time around. That's cool. I've taken this opportunity to look at my diet overall and try to incorporate more fruits and vegetables throughout the entire day - not just at dinner. (C'mon, who else is guilty of waiting until dinner to eat their vegetables for the day? This girl, usually.)

So here's a look at the healthier things I've been eating lately.

I've seen apples and Greek yogurt, chicken salad, 
peanuts and craisins, and more apples and cheese.

And then I ate stuffed shells for about five days straight. True story. 
At least I ate them with a salad on the side.


  1. Girl, my husband is the EXACT same way! It kind of drives me nuts come birthday time, or big holidays. I literally have to shove a piece down his throat, Ha Ha!

  2. Hey I once ate red velvet cake for about a week straight... for breakfast. Happens to the best of us :)

  3. The cake looks delish, that's for sure. And I think once my life straightens out, I may need to partake in this What I Ate Wednesday stuff.

    You need to blog more. I miss seeing all your good eats. ;)


Thanks for taking the time out of your day to show my space a little love.
