What I Ate Wednesday – Week 2

It’s another busy week, but that’s not keeping us from eating healthy around here. Is it just me, or does everyone else find themselves restocking the pantry this time of year? I find I need to refill things like sugar, oils, cereals, oats, and a whole lot more this time of year. Why is that?

Perhaps it’s because I’m not bolstering our menu with quite as many veggies. We’re of course still eating a lot of vegetables, but we seriously eat a ton more in the warmer weather months. We work more into what we bake, snack on, etc.

Restocking the pantry often leads t a trip to Trader Joe’s. Thankfully (according to my husband and our bank account) we don’t live super close to one. But that means I load up when I make it there! This week’s menu features one of our favorite family treats: their ravioli. Here’s everything else I’ve been or will be whipping up in our kitchen this week!

Butternut Squash and Arugula Ravioli (thanks Trader Joe’s)
Black Bean, Quinoa, and Sweet Potato Stuffed Bell Peppers
I don’t go to Trader Joe’s often, but I love these beets!
I find I need to cram in some serious calories when before starting a day on the road to see clients. This carb and protein loaded breakfast is perfect. 


  • Scrambled Eggs
  • Breakfast Quesadilla (tortilla, scrambled egg, leftover potatoes, and cheddar cheese)
  • Steel Cut Oatmeal (with raisins, cardamom, cinnamon, ginger, and maple syrup)
  • Yogurt with Granola



  • Roasted Brussel Sprouts and Butternut Squash
  • Sliced Fruit
  • Roasted Potatoes
  • Roasted Cauliflower
  • Sauteed Green Beans
  • Baked Sweet Potatoes

Side note: I’m working on a fun Valentine’s Day inspired muffin recipe. I can’t wait to share it with all of you next week! Stay tuned!
