What I Ate Wednesday #7

Welcome to another What I Ate Wednesday. Check out the sweet new button, courtesy of Jenn over at Peas & Crayons. You can find out more about the series on her blog and check out what other bloggers ate this Wednesday!

Anyone else in the northeast having a big hair week? I mean, holy crap—I’ve been walking around with, like, perpetual sex hair. Or just crazy-person hair. It’s a fine line.

Case in point.


This Wednesday was a bit of a whirlwind. Summer classes have started, and I’ve been taking on some more work and volunteer responsibilities recently. Some email troubles have been getting the better of me the past few days, but I’ve been trying to stay upbeat and breathe through the madness.

Today was pretty run-of-the mill for me, food-wise. It was all about keeping up with the ridiculousness and accompanying changes in scenery.

Breakfast: Overnight oats topped with berries

Lunch: Packed a salad topped with homemade baked falafel (recipe coming soon) and makeshift tahini dressing; an apple for dessert and amaranth crackers

Snack: Greek yogurt with a crumbled date ball

Dinner: Broken egg-white omelet filled with broccoli and cottage cheese (I wanted to see how it tasted—pleasantly surprised), Ezekiel sprouted-grain toast, extra broccoli, leftover rose wine (don’t judge)

Snack: Fitnessista-style “cookie dough cereal”(1/4 cup oats + 1 tbsp almond butter + cinnamon + almond milk+a few banana slices)

What a day…I’m torn between collapsing into bed and getting back to work. Hope your Wednesday was a good one!

    im a baked falafel addict! I’m curious to see your recipe! I’m always looking for new ways to make them! =) so far I have a baked and a fried but I want something different!

    anywho! My hair is a hot mess allll the time! I used to blame SOFL but now that i’m in NC i’m guessing its genetics? though nooooooone else in my fam has crazy hair like this! hello blacksheep!

      You’re my hero for attempting fried falafel—I’m way too intimidated by splattering oil.

      I hear you on the genetics thing. My sister and I have crazy-thick hair from our dad’s side of the family.

      I hope you enjoy the date balls in yogurt. I’ve been really digging it lately—quic, easy, and filling. Plus delicious.

    I haven’t had falafel in far too long. Excited to see your recipe!
    And I love big hair 😛 You wear it well, too!
    I hope today slows down for you a little bit and you were able to get some rest :]

      Haha thanks—I’m trying to just go with it. Why fight nature? Luckily, I slept pretty well, though I had really weird dreams. Must have been the wine!

    Yogurt with date ball sounds so simple yet elegant (and delish)! Can’t wait to try it.
