Hey! This week, I have been extra hungry…..which I guess is a good thing, because I’ve been surrounded by extra good food (mostly eaten out, my fridge is pretty empty lately because I never seem to be able to fit in a grocery store run- ugh). When I don’t have good food in the house, I think I tend to be hungrier in general because my meals are less balanced…but that’s just a guess– it could be because I’m just busier and running around more…
Anyway- THANKS TO JENN, as always! Time for What I Ate Wednesday!
So, here were my day-of-eats…..
Breakfast: Woke up hungry despite a big-ish dinner. I always get excited for my green smoothies. Happily sipped this one with a big cup of coffee with soy milk.
Lunch: After morning meetings, I was starving for lunch, but not in the mood AT ALL for what I brought. So instead, I stopped at the market on my way back to the office and picked out a more snack-y lunch. It was sort of random, but what I felt like– Peanut Butter (from the grinder at the market), a Banana, and mini Soy Rice Crackers.
I know, I know NO VEGGIES in there. Some days are like that
Snack: That filled me up, but not enough to miss a field trip to the ice cream shop! It was a sunny day, so loved an afternoon walk break. The ice cream store is so cute and makes their own ice cream. They even have vegan options!!
I went with the Vegan Chocolate IceCream. It was soy-based and had a ton of vegan chocolate chips in it. Hit the spot!!
Dinner: I guess all that sugar didn’t hold me over well enough though, because I was hungry again once dinner rolled around (like ready-to-chew-my-arm-off hungry).
Ate at a mediterranean place before an appointment. I got the Salmon shish-kabob that came with rice and salad. It was delish and finally a balanced meal!
And yes, I was finally stuffed after this!
Question for YOU-
– Ice Cream– sugar cone, plain cone, or cup?
– Do you tend to eat the same things for breakfast and lunch of change it up? (I usually eat the same breakfast and variations of the same lunch….except for this day!)
– Do you ever do the grocery store pb grinder? Do you think it tastes better/worse/same than other options (including making it yourself)?
