Itz WIAW

Itz the first official WIAW of summer break!  Yippee!  For many more delicious WIAW posts and meal ideas, be sure to head on over to Peas and Crayons and click around.

Also, don’t forget to enter my giveaway which is perfect for summer – especially for making that dreamsicle smoothie that is oh so delicious.  Now, let’s talk breakfast.

3 egg whites on top of steamed kale and smothered in Trader Joe’s habanero lime salsa.  I’ve been on a tea kick lately and it’s made all the better by a pretty mug one of my students gave me at the end of the schoolyear.

My blue nails have just been matching everything lately!  I love the quote on the mug: stop. smile. breathe. life is beautiful.  It sure is.  I was drinking some black tea from my foodie penpal and sweetened it with Lemon NuStevia.

Yesterday, I attended a workshop for my school and we had a one hour lunch break.  There was a Whole Foods close by and I was super stoked to visit their hot food bar.  As much as I go to Whole Foods, I’ve never gotten lunch or dinner from the bar!  So naturally I had to have a little taste of everything.

I chose many items from their Health Starts Here line since it is very healthy with no added gross stuff (oil, etc.), but not everything I chose was from there.  Just some of my box included spinach, cabbage salad, cucumbers, peas, carrots, edamame, corn, mushrooms, peppers teriyaki tofu, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, and some other kind of salad that I don’t remember the name of.  It was amazing.  I have a feeling I’ll be back.  Soon.

Dinner is from Monday night.  At the pool party we attended there was a nacho bar around 3:30, so we definitely wanted something on the lighter side for dinner.  It was light and came together in a jiffy.

Steamed broccoli, black beans, brown rice, plain greek yogurt, and more of TJ’s habanero lime salsa.  Though we did save room for dessert later in the evening.

Strawberry Coconut Smoothie – Oh baby was this good!  Frozen strawberries, unsweetened vanilla almond milk, ice, plain greek yogurt, shredded coconut, Vanilla NuStevia, and flaxseeds.  Seriously amazing.

That sums it up for today.  Make sure you become a fan of Itz Linz on Facebook to stay up to date on some exciting stuff coming up on the blog.  You won’t want to miss it.  :)

Tell me about your good eats as of late!

  1. I love the WF hot/cold food bar! I have one close by, but I haven’t been there in months. Seeing your lunch makes me want to go again so badly. I love their teriyaki tofu that you got!

    The best thing I’ve eaten recently was Greek food on Monday night – we made a Greek salad, chicken souvlaki, and had pita with hummus. Sooo good. :)

  2. Seriously? Every time I go to WF I save my money for the hot bar! I haven’t got one near me but they are coming next year- watch out!
    best thing lately are some vegan spice bread bars I made the other day. Literally the most simple recipe!

  3. I love experimenting with my nail colors! It’s great to try different things. I’m really into lavender and pastel pink right now.

    You eat very similar to what I eat. I love seeing how healthy and real all your food is. Whole Foods is my neighbor in Soho NYC so I go to their food bar almost daily. They have such a great selection of healthy foods. And I’m like you- I like to try everything!

  4. Aw that mug is so cute!!!!

    Ok I have NOT had that salsa from Trader Joes but now you totally have me craving it.. and it’s not even 8am haha. I love putting salsa on basically everything!

    • The salsa is good. It’s definitely different. My husband is not a huge fan, but he’s not crazy about lime. It’s a nice change from the traditional salsa (I love salsa, too!). :)

  5. I love your mug so much!! It’s really cute & such a great reminder,especially when having a bad day. :)
    Best thing I’ve eaten this week? Greek yogurt! I cannot get it where I live,but I found it on a shopping trip to the Netherlands last week… Oh,I love it so much!

    • I agree about the mug! I use it in the morning so it’s a nice reminder right when I wake up. Greek yogurt is thebombdotcom. They don’t sell it close to you?? Craziness!!
