Happy Wednesday! I think we all know that means that today is What I ate Wednesday, so let’s get to it. I also have a soup recipe below because I am clearly obsessed with soups during this cold streak (and of course today is 70 degrees)!

I made the soup on Sunday which is definitely a keeper! It’s extremely healthy and clean. Adam and I try to eat as clean as possible 80% of the time – Our goal is to have a six-pack by Summer… Who else thinks I won’t ever get there? I like fro-yo too much!

    I’m really intrigued by that soup recipe..especially the almond milk. It’s different than most recipes out there for broccoli cheese soup..I will definitely have to give that a try! 🙂

  2. The pictures of your breakfast sandwich and salmon dinner look so delicious! I also like munching on almonds, great healthy snack 🙂

  3. Ooh I’ve never tried the caramel thinkthin bar!

  4. I’ve never tried the caramel ThinkThin bar!

  5. We have salmon planned for tonight (on sale @ Publix today). And… I was thinking of making some soup today since I am off, just may use your recipe. I use Almond milk for my coffee & cereal (for years I used soy but I switched to the Almond). Also, have clementines here, altho’ almost out. Are we related? LOL — Love ya’ — Aunt Pam

  6. Love the idea of a healthy broccoli and cheese soup! I’m sure the usual recipes are loaded with fat and calories, so this is a great idea.

  7. Mmm a runny yolk always makes the egg sandwich way better. Looks like a good days worth of eats!

  8. I just came across your blog and i absolutely love it!!!
