Hey all! Let’s get right to it…..
What I Ate Wednesday, hosted by the fabulous Jenn
I photographed my eats from Monday. I was lucky enough to have the day half-off (off at 11am to make up for a big work event we had on Saturday). It was so nice to have a day of weekday eats at home!
BREAKFAST was bright at early at 6:30am. Green Smoothie (spinach, banana, blueberries) and a juicy orange. Plus a cup of green tea.
I had an 8am dentist appointment…..they numbed me so when I left an hour later, I could barely move my mouth, much less even drink water…..but I went right to a 9:30 am “networking breakfast” event…..It was so embarrassing! I was so numb that I was slurring my words and couldn’t say certain things. I’m pretty sure everyone I met thinks I was “the girl with the speech impediment” haha. Oh well. By noon the numbness had died down thankfully!
By 12:30, I was home (yay!) and ready for LUNCH. I made my favorite lately. Chicken (grilled with bbq sauce) and a sliced tomato inside a Collard Green. It’s like a wrap!
I love these because they’re not messy to eat, they’re filling, and taste great.
It’s SO much nicer to snack at home rather than at work because I can choose what I actually feel like rather than just what I happened to stick in my bag when I was half-asleep in the morning.
Around 2pm, I had a mini soy ice cream sandwich from TJs. Have you tried these? So good!
And then a little while later (4-ish?), I had some veggies with hummus. Is it just me or does anyone else like the whole carrots so much better than the baby ones?
And then when DINNER rolled around a little after 7, I had leftover Miso Quinoa salad from the night before. I made Emily (Daily Garnish)’s recipe (but changed some of the veggies) and WOW, it was soooo good, I think I’ll be making it every few days! I’m now obsessed with raw miso…but that’s a story for another day.
And because what’s life without more dessert?, I had a small piece of my Peanut Butter Krispie Bar– still taste good 5 days later!
Ok so questions for you!
– Regular carrots or Baby Carrots– can you taste the difference?
– Favorite Hummus Brand?
– What do you like to add to your quinoa?
– Any funny dentist and numbing stories?
