WIAW 7/2 Exceptional Eats and a Workout

Happy What I Ate Wednesday, foodies and readers! How are all of you doing?

Yesterday, was like a very exceptional day of eats. Like really exceptional! Do you ever have those days where you just love everything you ate by the end of the day?

Thank you, Jenn, for hosting the linkup! And I wanted to give a shout out to her awesome Coconut-Lime Avocado Muffins she posted yesterday! Those muffins look really good and I love the twist on the ingredients. Never would have thought to put those together!

Peas and Crayons

I started my day, waking up early to get some food and coffee in me before my run. I decided on something easily digestible, Kashi Autumn Wheat Biscuits with a little granola, handful of plump blueberries and Silk Unsweetened Almond Milk! Kashi’s wheat biscuits is one of my favorite cereals they have. Actually, I love all their cereals!


A few more of my favorites are:

As soon as I finished my blog post yesterday, it was time to run! I got ready to head on over to a new but old place to run. Its local but I rarely ever head over to it…mostly because it’s not that big. But there is a soft gravel trail and that’s what I really felt like doing today.

One of the wonderful things about woodsy trail runs, is the shade! YES!



I ended up walking a mile, after running 3 miles, to this little area that was so peaceful. I posted a video of it on Instagram yesterday!

I also did a workout a little while later that was really good and I MUST SHARE!

Just so you know, I have WAY too much fun designing workouts and making them look pretty on Picmonkey!


For post workout LUNCH, I was craving some weird combos! I had a hankering for my leftover sautéed broccoli, my dad’s homemade sauerkraut, pickles, a plum, and organic bread with a little organic PB and honey! Oh my, so good! Or maybe it’s just me…



After lunch, I received my book that I’ll be reviewing on the blog once I’m done with it, thanks to Blogging For Books. By the way, if you really like to read (anything from fiction, cook books, business, mysteries, etc.) and you have a blog, check out Blogging for Books. I think this is an amazing opportunity for anyone looking to widen their range of posts on their blog! Plus, you get a free book!

I picked this book since I’ll be starting my own health coaching and personal training business/studio one day soon in the future as a young woman. I’m very blessed with my career choice and thankful for all the support I receive and with that support, it really just makes me want to be 10X better! My passions are health and fitness and my goal is to help others become healthy and reach their goals. But at the same time, I’m not in business school, so making sure I know how to run my future business without business schooling, is really important to me. Taking everything in like a sponge right now!


Have any of you read this book? If so, let me know what you think of it in the comments. I’d love to know! For DINNER, I had crockpot turnip greens, cornbread, black eyed peas/green beans, mashed potatoes, and sautéed squash/onions.



Also, homegrown tomatoes for a little more color!


This is southern. And I am not ashamed of eating mashed potatoes. I know they aren’t the healthiest thing on the menu, but goodness, when you haven’t had them in a while, they sure are good!

Thank you all to those who took their time to complete the survey from yesterday’s post. If you didn’t see it, click here. I was asking for your feedback on what you would most like to see on the blog more often! I would greatly appreciate it!

Time for questions!

    My favorite cereal growing up was frosted mini wheats for sure. I am also a big fan of cheerios. Lately I have been liking oat O’s instead! Organic from Aldi 🙂 I have to try those Kashi cereals- they all sound great!

      Omg I still remember the first time I had frosted mini wheats! Those were so good and thats one reason I love the wheat biscuits from kashi! Much healthier!

    My favorite cereal growing up was a tie between cocoa puffs or lucky charms. Ah I miss sugary cereals! Now I usually stick with honey nut cherrios, but I may have the occasional bowl of cocoa puffs 🙂

    I am totally about to go check out the blogging for books. I love to read and blog so why not combine the two! Your eats look delicious and that trail is sooo pretty!

    I love kashi cereal! I think my favorite so far is the berry crunch go lean. But I haven’t had one of their cereals yet that I don’t like! I think my favorite cereal as a kid was cocoa puffs. Right now one of my favorite cereals is fiber one chocolate squares because it’s basically cocoa puffs with fiber! But of course there is also the Kashi cereal and puffins as close runner ups. 🙂

    The favorite thing I ate yesterday was homegrown zucchini my co-worker brought in for me. It was amazing!!!!! I love squash with onions hands down. Love your picmonkey pic. How did you make that funky zig-zag arrow? #wowlinkup

    • Audrey says:

      I love zucchini! That’s awesome that your co-worker brought it in for you, how considerate 🙂
      Squash and onions are definitely one of my faves too!
      I have the upgraded version of picmonkey which lets me have extra choices!

    Everything here does look delicious! Excited for you to start your journey as an entrepreneur 🙂 I’ve had my own fitness business for the last 1.5 yrs and LOVE it. It can take a while to get things going, but nothing it more rewarding than helping someone else succeed and learn to love being healthy as much as we do. Would love to hear how this book is!
