WIAW – Game Day

Hey everyone! I had a basketball game last night so I didn’t get a chance to write up a post earlier. Here’s What I Ate Tuesday, game day style!


The usual breakfast


with a new peanut butter!


Lunch is the hardest time for me. I eat earlier than I’d like (11:15),  so I’m not super hungry yet. Most days it’s just a sandwich and apple.


I felt a little hungry soon after so I had a clif bar. Then we left for the game which was an hour away! 


When we got there I had a banana. I could’ve went without it but I told myself that I needed fuel for the game!

After the game I went to Jimmy Johns(!) and got my #12 – wheat bread, turkey, provolone, lettuce, tomato, avocado spread, and mayo! I love their bread so much. So thick and grainy!

Even though we lost it was still a super intense game. Some pictures:






attractive, I know…

Happy WIAW, everyone! :D

Did you play basketball growing up?

Have you ever had Jimmy John’s?

    I LOVE this post! I used to play basketball (and lacrosse) year-round – school, travel, AAU, college – so reading about game day makes me miss it so much! We used to eat a LOT on game days… We’d go out before the game (usually to Subway) and if the game was on a Friday night Silver Diner was our go-to :P

      Thanks Allison! :D you played college ball?! That’s awesome! I’m not sure yet if I want to or not… I’m not sure I want the stress of practices along with classes! Although when sports are done I don’t know how I’m going to fill my life, lol! I’ve never heard of Silver Diner before, but we frequent Subway all the time haha!
