What I Ate Wednesday #6

Posted on Updated on


Welcome to another What I Ate Wednesday. To see more about this series, visit Jenn’s blog, Peas & Crayons.

I woke up early to a miserable, rainy day. Awesome. Fortunately, I felt a little less cranky after some gym-time. I’ve found that mentally, I do better on a crappy day when I exercise in the morning—I’m better off taking my rest days when it’s nice out and I’m less prone to gloomy moods. On top of it being gross out, you could seriously tell it was still full moon weather today—by lunchtime, my head hurt from smiling and nodding and staying calm. Luckily, I finished all the stuff I needed to do pretty quickly and got home in time to catch up on some freelance projects.

The Elvis Costello show I was supposed to go to this evening was canceled due to bronchitis, but I was kind of okay with not having to go out in the rain.

Anyway, onto the “what I ate” part of this What-I-Ate-Wednesday…Hope you had a good one!

Breakfast: I was so out of it I almost forgot to take a picture! Overnight oats made with yogurt, oats, chia seeds, and banana topped with berries

Packed Lunch: Brown rice with roasted broccoli and cauliflower and seitan; an apple for dessert 

Snack: Green smoothie (kale + frozen peach slices + frozen strawberries + ice + 1/2 c yogurt) topped with a spoonful of granola

Dinner: Salad with miso-tahini dressing and two eggs on a slice of toasted homemade bread; kombucha to drink

Snack: Fitnessista-style “cookie dough cereal” (1/4 cup oats + 1 tbsp almod butter + cinnamon + 1 tbsp cocoa powder + almond milk)—weird-looking but good

For the record, I do have multiples of the same bowl! And if I didn’t, I would wash it between uses!

I think yoga needs to happen tomorrow. There’s almost nothing a good stretch can’t fix. Or do I mean to say a good stretch can fix almost anything?

    The dough smoothies are so easy—just put the overnight oats in the blender the next morning (or mix them in there the night before), add a little milk, and blend.

      It took me a few tries to get the kale smoothie thing right, but I think the drink is doing frozen fruit/ice at the bottom, some kind of liquid or yogurt, and then putting the kale on top so it’s the last thing to get blended in. I don’t know if there’s any scientific basis for that, but hey, it seems to work!
