Today you are going to be subjected to the most random “What I Ate Wednesday”. Mainly because there is no specific day in which I tracked my foods. But rather this post will just be a chronicle of the times in my life when I thought, “oh hey, this looks/tastes good, let me take a picture for the blog”!
And as always, thanks Jenn for hosting!
One of my typical dinners…. like I said there is absolutely zero order in this post….. Ezekiel bread, 4 egg whites, one slice of Diaya dairy free cheese, grilled zucchini. And ketchup. Because #YOLO. I love ezekiel bread and have totally substituted out any white flour from my diet. I think it really helps decrease stomach bloat, and unlike other white carbs (i.e. bagels/pasta/everything delicious) two slices fills me up. The “sprouted grains” give my meal more substance and the added protein (“Rated 84.3% as efficient as the highest source of protein (comparable to that of milk or eggs)” – per their website).
When I was home over the weekend I totally raided my moms fridge and made SURPRISE an egg scramble. My mom had four… not an exaggeration, such a weird amount, stems of broccoli. So again, 4 egg white scramble, with the four (weird) small trees of broccoli, side of roasted sweet potatoes and shallots, and a slice of homemade sunflower seed bread. DELICIOUS. And I’m totally convinced when I don’t have to buy/stock/clean/prep/cook the food it tastes TEN BILLION time better. I only state facts.
During an overwhelming day at work I NEEDED an Acai Bowl. Over to Green & Tonic I went (so convenient I work next door. Actually, the building over) and got their Berry Bowl. Obsessed. Asked for less granola because ain’t nobody got time for all that added sugar. It was the perfect afternoon treat and kept me moderately cool while I sat outside in my all-black-ninja outfit and enjoyed some fresh air.
Nothing better than fresh veggies as a mid-day snack. Green bell pepper (pretty sure I eat at least one a day) and farm stand radishes (thanks Mom!). Best. Snack. Ever. Could 100% live on watermelon. Like I said earlier… I never exaggerate : )
And there you have it. No comprehensive/ordered post about my daily eats. But rather a jumbled collection of things I find myself constantly eating this summer. I’m all about the fresh foods and I’m totally back on that egg grind.
Hope you all have a tasty Wednesday. And in the words of Elle Woods, “We did it!” And by “did it” I mean made it to Wednesday. HUMP DAY! WOOT WOOT.
Do you ever go through phases of eating similar meals?
What’s the best way to snack?
Ever find your taste for food changes with the weather?? I’m way less hungry when it’s humid, and have barely an appetite after a long or difficult run.
