What I Ate Wednesday #33: Thanksgiving Prep

Posted on Updated on


Happy Wednesday, all! I’m heading out to see my family in New Jersey, so I decided to post about Tuesday’s meals for this week’s What I Ate Wednesday post.

Thanks for the kind words yesterday. I know I waited kind of a while to post about it, but for some reason it felt best to hold off until I’d had a little time to put things in the past tense.  Speaking of changes, this is the first Thanksgiving since 2007 I’m not traveling to Boston, and I have to admit, I’m so happy not to have to deal with the stress of a long-distance trip this year.

Not counting cleaning, laundry, and paper-writing, my prep this year basically involved eating the perishables in the fridge before skipping town. Not too hard to do. A lot of weird, big salads and odd sandwiches were involved. Yesterday was no exception. Here’s what was on the menu…

Breakfast: Oats with a chopped plum, pumpkin, ground flax and sunflower seed butter

Lunch: A grilled cheese made with hummus, goat cheese, roasted eggplant and roasted pepper; kale chips on the side

Snack: yogurt with a plum and cereal

Dinner: Massaged kale salad with baked tofu, roasted cauliflower and roasted pepper; baked sweet potato rounds 

Snack: More yogurt and cereal

So that’s that. I’m looking forward to a long weekend with family and friends.

What are your Thanksgiving plans?
