And here we are again: the midway point of yet another packed week. No complaints, though—I’ll totally take it over this time last year, if we’re going to play that game.

Still, Wednesday came really fast this week—and so did What I Ate Wednesday. As always, thanks to Jenn for hosting the link party. To see more WIAW from other bloggers, visit Peas & Crayons.

I don’t know what it is, but after being in a months-long food rut, I’ve finally been trying a lot of new things recently. About damn time. I’d almost forgotten how much I like playing around with different ingredients sometimes. I was worried I was going to revert back to my college-days habit of keeping pots and pans in my oven because I never, ever used it  .

On Monday, for example, I tried using non-fat ricotta in my oatmeal (part-skim would have been even better, but Trader Joe’s only had fat-free) and later used sardines with tahini & sautéed veggies for a sandwich. 

Finding a boneless, skinless variety helped me get over my fear of eating little fish-bones. I’m so glad I finally gave it a shot—freaking delicious. Nutritious too. I think this is one of my new favorite ways to get my omega-3s.

Here’s what else was on the menu for Monday…

Breakfast: Overnight oats with ricotta and berries added in the morning, topped with PB2 sauce. 

Lunch: Nothing in the cafeteria looked good, so I went with a salad and an orange 

Snack: Green smoothie 

Dinner: Sardines, garlicky sauteed mushrooms & kale, tahini, and lemon juice on toasted bread; arugula salad with roasted figs & goat cheese 

Snack: Yogurt w/ cereal (unpictured)
