guessing games

October 19, 2011

Happy Hump Day! (Does anyone else get a little weirded out by that phrase like me?) For some reason, this week has been flying by, which is odd since last week was a shortened week and took forever.

So here’s the deal. Usually on Wednesday mornings, I tell you about all my meals I ate the day before, and you “ooh and aah” over everything I ate. I’m about to turn the tables on you though. We’re going to be playing a different “What I Ate Wednesday” game today. Instead of me telling you what I ate, you are going to have to use your brains and draw conclusions about what I ate based off of my pictures (am I a teacher or what?).

Are you ready?

Breakfast — 5:45 AM

Lunch — 11:15 AM

A lot of you have been asking how in the world I make it from breakfast until lunch without having a morning snack. To be honest with you, I will sometimes have a morning snack. However, most mornings are so insane that I don’t even think to use the bathroom let alone put something else in my stomach. Fifth grade is pretty intense these days.

It’s okay – could you use your inside voice next time? ;)

Ha! Yes, Ms Chelsey! I can totally tell you are a teacher- I’ll draw conclusions and use logical reasoning too—— “Using previous breakfasts as collected data, I’m predicting your breakfast is: pumpkin oats with a cut up apple, cinnamon, peanut butter, and craisins on top.” ;)

lunch was leftover butternut squash pancakes with roasted brussel sprouts and broccoli!

Tessa @ Amazing Asset October 19, 2011 at 6:13 am

Ha I love this! Breakfast- oatmeal with pumpkin and apple slices stirred in, a dash of cinnamon and topped with Peanut butter and craisins!

Whatever your nighttime snack was, it looks awesome! :-)

Lauren @ What Lauren Likes October 19, 2011 at 6:21 am

Lunch?! Haha everything looks great though :)

Heather October 19, 2011 at 6:25 am

I wanna give dinner a go! I’m a brave soul, I know. ;-) Was it some sort of cabbage soup with stewed tomatoes, butternut squash, and onion?

cleaneatingchelsey October 19, 2011 at 6:30 am

very close!

Brittany October 19, 2011 at 6:26 am

Your lunch totally looks like pumpkin pancakes. I’m not sure if you’d eat that with broccoli and brussel sprouts?! That would be my guess though :D

Claire @ Live and Love to Eat October 19, 2011 at 6:37 am

Definitely pumpkin oats and your squash cakes for breakfast and lunch! :)

Chelsea @ One Healthy Munchkin October 19, 2011 at 6:48 am

Butternut squash pancakes with roasted veggies for lunch!

Reply

Marijke October 19, 2011 at 6:48 am

I’m guessing your night time snack was some kind of cereal and milk? Judging by your awesome delivery earlier in the week I’m going to take an educated guess at Love Grown granola? Maybeeee sweet cranberry pecan?

Reply

katie October 19, 2011 at 7:05 am

I actually never eat a snack in between breakfast or lunch either, unless Im hungry for one, which I never am!

Happy Wednesday love!!

katie @KatieDid October 19, 2011 at 7:15 am

Was your late night snack love grown granola with almond milk and a scoop offff peanut butter???

Tiff @ Love Sweat and Beers October 19, 2011 at 7:37 am

Ummm… good stuff? :) ha. Quinoa corn bread – I’m not surprised to see that again

Amanda- The Nutritionist Reviews October 19, 2011 at 7:59 am

Mmm is that a cabbage veggie soup? I love cabbage soup…guess that’s the Polish in me!

chelcie @ Chelcie's Food Files October 19, 2011 at 7:59 am

cabbage soup with quinoa bread for dinner! and the left over butternut squash pancakes with roasted brussel sprouts and an apple for lunch! haha looks yummmy!

Ashley @ My Food 'N' Fitness Diaries October 19, 2011 at 9:12 am

I could take the easy way out and guess your breakfast (voluminous oats with pumpkin, banana, cranberries, & apples), but I thought I’d challenge myself a little and guess your lunch. Aren’t I a good student?! ;) I’m going to guess it is your leftover butternut squash pancakes with roasted brussel sprouts, broccoli, and an apple on the side.

janae jacobs October 19, 2011 at 9:13 am

You are hilarious! I am guessing BREAKFAST!! PS I could not agree more with you about hump day ha!

Molly@hungryhungryrunner.com October 19, 2011 at 9:14 am

I agree – no idea what your evening snack was but I *want* it!!!! :)

e@thisnotedlife October 19, 2011 at 9:33 am

that phrase TOTALLY wierds me out too

Leanne @ Healthful Pursuit October 19, 2011 at 9:56 am

Looks great! Everytime I eat raisins + almonds I think of you haha… I could imagine it’s very intense being a teacher to a bunch of grade 5 students. My gosh. My Aunt teaches the same grade and she always has to be turned “on” at all times.

oh yes – there is no down time on the job!

Gina @ Running to the Kitchen October 19, 2011 at 10:06 am

Haha, see the first line of my post today for my thoughts on the “hump day” expression. We think alike ;)
I think the side is the quinoa corn bread, no? :)

cleaneatingchelsey October 19, 2011 at 11:51 am

sure is! <3 that stuff!

I think I read your blog too much. I recognized everything in your day except the night-time snack, based on picture recognition or previous posts! Dinner is your “Loaded Cabbage Soup.” :) Yum Yum Yum!!

Lindsay @ Lindsay's List October 19, 2011 at 10:52 am

hmmm…I’m going to go with the breakfast of pumpkin stuff…thus prolonging our inside joke. ;) http://wp.me/p1Mp21-Ev

lunch! Butternut squash pancakes! :D

Anna @ The Guiltless Life October 19, 2011 at 11:44 am

No idea, but the last one looks like my sometimes-evening snack, which is probably a lot grosser than yours. I have this really weird habit of crumbling up a VitaMuffin into a glass of milk and eating it like it’s cereal.

OK, I know I just grossed everyone out and that was a MAJOR confession for me to make but it’s SO good! So like comfort food… anyway, it looks like that but I’m sure yours isn’t nearly as weird :) .

Reply

cleaneatingchelsey October 19, 2011 at 11:51 am

haha I do that with muffins and sweet breads all the time.

Anna @ The Guiltless Life October 19, 2011 at 11:47 pm

No way! I thought I was the only one. You’ve made me feel way better :)

I could totally cheat and just read what everyone else wrote and may you think I’m brilliant, or I could just say, “Have a good Wednesday!!!”

I hope you had a good Wednesday too!

I think all of your meals have been pretty much summed up:) I’m sorry to hear about your chipped cup. It gives it character.

Reply

Lauren October 19, 2011 at 12:12 pm

Except for your snack, I think I could name every single thing you ate, which either means A) I read your blog religiously B) I’m super creepy C) That loaded cabbage soup has been in my “to make” folder for at least a year or D) All of the above.

I’m going with D. Happy WIAW.

cleaneatingchelsey October 20, 2011 at 5:44 am

I like that you A) read my blog religiously B) are super creepy (but not really) C) have been meaning to make that soup (and you should) and D) I love you.

Kaitlyn@TheTieDyeFiles October 19, 2011 at 12:58 pm

Dinner: Some sort of cabbage soup with cornbread sans corn?

Fun game!

Reply

Lisa @ Healthy Diaries October 19, 2011 at 1:53 pm

You definitely love your oats!

I would love your oats as well because they always look amazing! :)

Rachel @ My Naturally Frugal Family October 19, 2011 at 1:57 pm

I want your lunch whatever it actually is. I see brussel sprouts and broccoli which I love.

Reply

Jin @ Health Ninja October 19, 2011 at 2:58 pm

Haha, I was just wondering what those amazing baked squares are and am happy that there were some foodies before who already guessed right – now I only have to find the recipes. Quinoa corn bread … hm just too tempting to resist!

Reply

Allie October 19, 2011 at 3:02 pm

I don’t know what that side-bread is, but it looks goood! Cornbread of some sort?

Reply

Hannah @ mindrunningwild October 19, 2011 at 3:58 pm

My guesses:
Breakfast: pumpkin gluten free oats with chopped apple and crasins, cinnamon and PB
Lunch: The yummy butternut squash pancakes, roasted veg and nooch
Snack:almonds and raisins, obviously :)
Dinner: cabbage veg soup with side of noncornbread
Snack:almond Butter with milk and love grown? granola?

That was all probably unnecessary but it was fun all the same :)

cleaneatingchelsey October 20, 2011 at 5:44 am

I love the “nocornbread” title!

elise October 19, 2011 at 4:11 pm

Lindsey @ Cardio Pizza October 19, 2011 at 5:30 pm

Your lunch looks like salmon cakes…but I don’t think it is..hm?

Dinner…veggie soup :)

I BROKE my favourite coffee mug the other day :( I was super sad.
Yours is lovely though, but I often wonder how glass coffee mugs never smash?

Not sure whats all in it but the cabbage soup looks yummy!

Your lunch looks exactly like some chickpea and chilli cakes that I normally make!
