WIAW and “Why do I watch Bachelor Pad?”

Today’s “What I Ate Wednesday” should really be called WIAM, because it’s my Monday eats.  But just go with it, OK? Winking smile

Just a reminder, the WIAW idea is courtesy of the oh-so gorgeous and super-sweet, Jenn.  Love her!

Breakfast: My normal.  Peanut butter and banana on whole wheat toast.  Yawn.

Morning snacks: Yogurt and cocoa-roast almonds.  The almonds are really great because they keep me full until lunch.


Lunch: I didn’t take a picture of Monday’s lunch, but it looked something like this:


Turkey on whole wheat with honey mustard and a side of veggies. Smile

Afternoon snack: Half a bagel with peanut butter, thrown quickly down my throat before heading to the gym.



Shredded Chicken Fajitas.  Recipe will be up tomorrow. Winking smile

Dessert: A big bowl of grapes.  They would have been even better if they were frozen, but they were still tasty!


Time to talk “Bachelor Pad!”

OK first question … for those who watch the show, WHY do you watch it?

Better question … why do I watch it??

I think I watch it because I like seeing former “Bachelor/Bachelorette” contestants again.  I like seeing what they look like now, finding out who’s dating who, etc. 

But I really do think it’s cheesy.  I mean, the group “dates” aren’t even dates.  They’re all about strategy.

Which is why Melissa took Kasey on her date, who already has a girlfriend.

But then Melissa threw strategy out the window and decided to give her rose to Blake.  Forget the fact that Kasey would get her further in the game!  The second a cute guy gives her any bit of attention, she throws all game-play out the window.

And THEN Melissa is actually surprised to later see Blake flirting with another girl.

I hate to say it, but this is why men often do better in these kinds of competitions.  Men use their brains … women use their emotions.

Of course, that statement isn’t always true …



… Michael Stagliano was certainly acting on his emotions when he gave his ex-fiancé, Holly, the rose.

I think Michael is my favorite.  He was one of my favorites when he was a contestant on Jillian’s season, and he’s still top on my list.  He just seems like a genuinely nice guy.

The fact that he invited Erica to be one of the three girls on his date proves this fact.



At first, I felt bad for Erica because she got picked on during the competition.  But when she started complaining to the camera about how some of the other girls are heavier and less attractive than her, I lost all sympathy!


Question for ya …

Tell me something delicious that you’ve eaten today (or Monday, for that matter, since I wrote about my Monday eats! Winking smile).

If you watch “Bachelor Pad,” why do you watch it?  What do you like about it?

    When you mentioned frozen grapes, it just skyrocketed me back to being a little kid, I loved sticking toothpicks in them and dipping them in chocolate before freezing. SO good!! :)

    • notsodomesticated

      Well now that sounds interesting! I’ve never thought of grapes and chocolate going together!!

  2. Cherie

    I am grateful beyond words that I found your blog through Janae. I love that you share what you eat and recipes. Eating right is one of the main ingredients missing from my running. Thank you!!!

    • notsodomesticated

      Thanks, Linda!! But just a warning … I also post a lot of “not-so healthy” recipes. I’m all about “everything in moderation.” So you’ll find healthy and unhealthy recipes on this blog!! ;)

    I completely agree about Michael…he seems like such a sweet guy…and FUNNY! Melissa is super whiny and seems a bit crazy. I am not surprised she is still single at age 32. I have only watched half of it so far…just the voting left to go and I have to say I cracked up that Viena said the contestants should refuse to vote 2 girls off because it was “cheating”. She is something else.

    • notsodomesticated

      Vienna is all about the fame. And Melissa said she came on the show again to prove she isn’t crazy … guess that goal wasn’t accomplished! ;)

    What kinda pickle is that with your sammy? I LOVE pickles! The spicy texas pete petite’s are my fave! If you like spicy you gotta try those babies!

    • notsodomesticated

      It’s a plain old dill! I’ve had horseradish sweet pickles before and those were delish!

    Now I am craving fajitas……I LOVE BACHELOR PAD because I don’t have any drama in my life and so I like to live through them!

    • notsodomesticated

      Hahaha I think that’s why a lot of us watch it, Janae. And it’s good that you don’t have drama in your life. ;)

    I just at a DELICIOUS turkey/veggie wrap for lunch. I’m going to feature it on the blog soon.

    I don’t watch any of the bachelor/bachelorette shows. In fact a bunch of my friends get together to watch them and I tried to join in just for the sake of fellowship but I honestly get so irritated by them I can’t do it!
