Vacations are great; time spent away from work and with people you love help you forget the daily stresses and relax (hopefully). But then there's the dreaded end of vacation where the little worries start popping back into your head and you dread the return to routine. I'm sure most of you know what I'm talking about, and I have some of that feeling now.

This can really zap the motivation to cook right out of me. Do you ever get this feeling? Luckily, I am set in my ways and determined to make healthy choices. Thank goodness there's frozen produce to fall back on!
Although most of my vacation eats entailed steamed veggies at grandma's house, I thoroughly enjoy eating these and haven't grown tired of them yet. Upon our return home, I gathered several bags of Earth's various frozen gifts and quickly created meals for our shortened work week lunches. Since veggies reign supreme in our home, I had extras for breakfast and dinner too.
These may not be extravagant foods, but they sure are healthy and I feel they keep my ticker ticking better than the person in a McDonald's line. No offense if you're one of those people, I just chose Mickey D's, but it could be any fast food chain.
With that said, I'm home and ready for another What I Ate Wednesday post! Happy WIAW!
Snack – Unique Sprouted Whole Grain Pretzels I brought back from PA and green tea. I'm pretty sure all the best pretzels and made in PA; even the smallest convenience store has at least 4 different brands to choose from! Mmmm, pretzels are my Prozac; they're comforting crunch and salty goodness flips the "I'm stressed" switch to OFF.
