What I Ate Wednesday #11: Fermented Food Fest

Posted on Updated on


Welcome to another installment of “What I Ate Wednesday.” For more info about the series, visit founder Jenn’s blog, Peas & Crayons

What a day! I’ll be so happy when these 12-hour Wednesdays become discontinued in July. I love that night classes make it possible for me to both work and get an education, but holy crap—I am so excited for July to get here. I know that my fall course schedule is just as packed as these past six weeks have been, but I think two school-free months will help me recharge.

Foodwise, today was a pretty basic Wednesday. I have, however, been making an effort to include some fermented foods this week while I take a course of antibiotics, along with an acidophilus supplement twice a day. Since there are many different kinds of good gut bacteria, I’ve been eating foods that contain them, such as yogurt, miso, and Chris’ weird-ass sauerkraut-based cashew cheese. I will admit to being a little confused as to what food group I’d file it under. I figured it makes a good source of healthy fats. It’s actually really good!  I think the best part of my day was kicking up my feet as I  settled in for a late dinner with the newspaper. It’s the little things…

Tomorrow I’m getting my Invisalign “nubs” off (finally) and going to see a friend’s play. I can’t wait!

Breakfast: Overnight oats with berries

Lunch: Packed salad (greens, lentils, roasted veggies, oil & vinegar); amaranth crackers; an apple—admittedly a little blah but got the job done

Snack: Green smoothie (frozen fruit + spinach + yogurt + ice) with oats, topped w/ granola

Dinner: A little baked tofu with the last of the roasted cauliflower; an Ezekiel cinnamon raisin English muffin with Chris’ weird-but-good cashew cheese

Snack: Mint chocolate chip ice cream

Hope your Wednesday was a good one!

    I have to say, I don’t miss classes right now and am pretty glad to take a little break. (I won’t be saying this later when I’m still not freaking done…). At least 6 weeks is quick and fairly painless! Hope you had a great day 🙂
