What I Ate Today

Because I'm sure you really want to know, right? Ok. Maybe not. But what the heck? Here goes...Don't judge me. Just keepin' it real here folks. : )

First thing first.
I take my pills with a cup of water with a splash of lemon juice.
And usually I add half a banana.
Taking pills on an empty stomach = ugh.
Oh. And the water in the mug?
OK. Here's the thing.
I have found I drink much more water if I drink it from a mug.
Purely psychological, I'm sure.
But it works for me!

Finally! Coffee time!
I actually go to bed happy because I know this is waiting for me in the morning!
I switch it up, but this is my current favorite.
And it is good. : )

Later, I sat down to breakfast.
Yes. I force myself to sit.
And today I had an over easy egg with a slice of whole wheat toast and strawberries.
Some days I have cereal.
On weekends I have pancakes or waffles.
Or doughnuts.
Because. Weekends.
This varies, but today I had a hoagie. Yep.
Steve brought some home and I was thrilled.
I balanced all that yummy ham and cheese goodness with peppers and dip and sliced peaches.
I like to be fair like that.

One of my favorite times of the day.
My afternoon coffee.
I sit a bit, sip my coffee, and recharge.
And she waits patiently for the very last sip.

Later in the afternoon, I found myself hungry.
I debated between cookies and yogurt.
My conscience won.
But honestly, this yogurt is super good.

And dinner.
I'd like to show you an elaborate meal, but on this night. we had a favorite.
Grilled Cheese and Tomato Soup.
And no one complained. : )

And finally.
My bedtime snack.
Sometimes I have a cup of tea.
But tonight it was brownies and milk.
And that ended a very good day.

So there you have it.
More than you ever wanted to know about me and food.
Thanks for sticking around!
And feel free to share what you eat in a day.
Strangely enough, I find that stuff interesting!


  1. Some looks yummy (the brownies) and some my tummy would not like. Is the Folgers Cappuccino real coffee or a sugar hot drink? Sounds good to me. I especially like having that adorable face waiting for the last sip.

  2. Oh yum!! Love almost everything you ate! For lunch, I just had part of an oldish lettuce salad :( and then topped it off with a cupcake with monstrous frosting!!!! Shhhh - don't tell!

  3. Oooh, I love this little peek into your everyday life! You have inspired me to do a post on the same thing. Maybe tomorrow I will document what I eat. No surprise it's pretty close to what you have here. And have I mentioned that grilled cheese & tomato is one of my favorite dinners ever! ♥ PS those brownies look to-die-for!

  4. Always interesting to see what others eat. I don't drink coffee but start my day with tea English breakfast and cereals or toast or fruit. Lunch is a sandwich or soup. I always have afternoon tea which is a pot of tea and cake. My evening meal is the main meal of the day and we always have pudding. Take care.

  5. I drink from a mug all day as well. I just think drinking from a mug is cozier so it's what I use. Plain ole tomato soup and a grilled cheese is a favorite over here as well, now if we could only get some cold weather to enjoy it!!

  6. I find it very interesting actually. I may try the water in the mug thing. I am so bad at staying hydrated. Maybe that will work for me.
    That cappuccino looks good, too. I'll have to look for that at the store.
    Everything you ate looks good to me.....everything in moderation I always say.

  7. water in a mug? really? I knew about the afternoon coffee and the Peyton amazing brownies at night. But I didn't know about the pills, the mugs of water, and the banana. And by the way, good for you for sitting down. Cool post... I'll have to do mine someday...

  8. I think I'll follow this plan. Looks good to me.

  9. Sitting down through the day is a must! Sometimes, I found myself very tired, so coffee, afternoon coffee is a must for me. I drink water all day long and I've done a mug before too. Works great! I try really hard to drink my protein powder smoothie every day and it actually fills you up. But, I definitely have to have something sweet to end the day. I think I'll have a couple of snickerdoodles! Yum!
    Thanks for sharing your food for the day. I agree...strangely I enjoy that too! ;)
    Enjoy your evening!

  10. What a fun post! I need to be more like you and sit down to eat. I find myself standing up many times, especially when I am eating alone. We love to eat grilled cheese and soup too, such wonderful comfort food! I have never documented what I eat all day, this sounds fun. May get brave enough to do that sometime :) Hugs to you today!

  11. What a great post idea! I love looks into everyone's normal day. And I also love a good grilled cheese and tomato soup! YUM!!

  12. Looks like a good day to me. I do lemon water.

  13. This was fun!! Grilled cheese and to,ate soup is a favorite here! You know what I do sometimes..cut the grilled cheese into cubes and put it in the soup... like croutons.

  14. Billie Jo, I don't think that's strange at all. I love hearing about food. That may be the first question I ask my husband when he returns from a business trip - so what did you eat? I mean breakfast, lunch, and dinner! I love grilled cheese sandwiches!

  15. Grilled Cheese & Tomato soup is such comfort food. We haven't had that in a while. Gotta make some now. ;)

  16. This post makes me so homesick for Mocha and your grilled cheese a Peyton's brownies! :(

  17. It all looks so yummy! I love your little coffee area, so cute! I may have to do a post about what I eat in a day! Hugs. Juli

  18. It all looks delicious and sensible too! Gotta have a few treats, Moms need to keep their strength up! Those brownies look amazing ~
    I like reading about the everyday lives of my blog friends.
    Your enjoyment of things is infectious!

  19. I had to laugh out loud at the title and first line-you are so funny! But I actually really enjoyed this post- you should seriously have a link up party lol This post inspired me to eat more er better I should say I also have to force myself to sit and eat lunch and breakfast too bad I know. today I actually had Cereal but after looking at your photos I am going to have 2nd breakfast (hi all the LOTR fans) Eggs! the photo of Mocha cracks me up- that face it looks like his little eyes are wide open in anticipation of the last sip.
    you know I'd really like to know more about your vitamins-I need to find some I like and stick with it. Do you find they give you more energy? there are just so many out there I get overwhelmed.

    1. ok lady your name is all over my last to IG posts lol yes... I had 2nd breakfast


Thanks so much for saying hello!
