What I Ate Wednesday: Lucky Number 13

Posted on

Welcome to another “What I Ate Wednesday” post. You can visit founder Jenn’s blog for more on the series.

Today was another half-day that started late. I spent the morning working and writing before I took a walk. It was a really easy afternoon at the clinic. When I got home, Chris was getting stuff together to start the laundry and announced that it was his turn to pay for dinner and hey, how about Mexican? I guess he’d picked up on my “I could really go for a cold beer and food that goes with cold beer” vibes. The food is always good at El Azteca, and tonight it did not disappoint.

When we got home, I folded my clothes and played with my new suitcase. Thinking of all the trips I have coming up in the next few months kind of makes my heart soar a little.

I think this is the first What I Ate Wednesday that has included a restaurant meal! That’s probably because it’s the first week I haven’t had class on a Wednesday night. It was nice to eat dinner at a human hour instead of sit in a classroom…

Breakfast: Weird-looking but very good smoothie (why don’t I add cocoa powder more often?)

Lunch: Fried egg sandwich on two flax waffles; salad on the side; grilled peach with yogurt for dessert

Snack: Yogurt mixed with cocoa powder and flax, topped with a crumbled date ball. Looks gross, I know, but I was too hungry to care about beauty…

Dinner: Vegetable enchilada; Corona

Snack: Sliced apple with a little almond butter

Hope your Wednesday was a good one. What was the best thing you ate?

    Peach season just arrived here and peaches are my FAV fruit! Oddly enough, I always bake em in a dessert or eat them raw. How do you grill yours???? I want to give that a try!

      All I do is slice them in half and place them, cut side down, on the dinky little George Foreman grill I’ve had since college. A real grill works too : )

    I used cocoa powder the other day too and wonder why I don’t use it more often – so delicious! And those waffles look excellent. The best thing I’ve eaten lately is probably the froyo at 16 Handles, which I visit far too much!

      Yeah—it totally took the smoothie I was making from breakfast into, like, pudding. Well, pudding that also happens to be healthy and filling. The only problem was the color, but it’s a tradeoff I’m willing to make…

    your flax date yogurt looks a little bit like a frosty 😉 yum! Happy WIAW! The best thing I’ve eaten lately is pretty boring – buckets and buckets of watermelon and fresh berries! lol

      I might have to have a frosty-inspired concoction on purpose soon. Or just get a real frosty : )

      can you believe I haven’t had any fresh watermelon yet this season? Terrible, I know…
