What I Ate Wednesday #80

Posted on Updated on


Another week, another What I Ate Wednesday. As always, thanks to Jenn for hosting the weekly link party. To see more WIAW from other bloggers, visit Peas & Crayons.

Since I’ve been showing you a lot of Sundays and Mondays, I thought I’d switch things up this week and show you what I ate Saturday instead.

This past Saturday was one of the most fun in recent memory. I seem to be on a roll this month (we’ll see about next week, when I’m working at the hospital…)—thank you for being awesome, October!

I promised myself I’d keep the day work-free, so I started off with another donation-based yoga class, ran some errands, and then met up with some lovely ladies at the Cloisters, where I’d never been, despite living in NYC almost 5 years. I ran home to write some emails and paint my nails before dinner and drinks in Astoria. I may have gotten home a little before midnight, but I’d had such a great, full day, I went to bed super-satisfied—and worn out from all that walking! I enjoyed a lot of good food, too. Not having to rely on the hospital cafeteria is nice.

Breakfast: Pancake topped with non-fat ricotta & homemade cranberry sauce; nectarine slices 

Lunch: Homemade bean soup w/ extra kale & sprouted grain toast w/ hummus & roasted red pepper 

Snack: Green smoothie (skim milk + xanthan gum + 1/2 frozen banana + spinach + ice) with a little cereal on top  

Dinner: Miso Ramen at Hinomaru Ramen in Astoria; later, some red wine at a nearby bar 

Snack: chopped granny smith apple w/ cinnamon & pumpkin pie spice + ~1 tbsp oats, microwaved ~3 minutes and topped with  more cranberry sauce 

Do you try to leave certain days “work-free?” How about turning in early on a Saturday night? What was the best thing you ate last weekend?

    Loving all your meals.

    I don’t have the slightest idea what the best thing I ate this past weekend, but I do know that I had some amazing apple pie overnight oats this morning for breakfast 🙂

      I made it a lot more tart this time by mistake (used a lot more cranberries and more lemon juice) and kind of loved it. I have a sour tooth.

    Ooo yum, that homemade soup looks fantastic. My favorite food lately has been acorn squash! Great day of food! 🙂

      Homemade soup is one of my favorite things this time of year—total comfort food. I haven’t had acorn squash in forever, even though I love it. Thanks for the reminder : )

    I’m totally a grandma and LOVE going to bed early on Saturday nights 🙂 I love how almost all your food is in bowls, I find myself only eating out of bowls a lot so in my opinion bowls >>> plates!

      Some days it’s just a lot easier to eat out of bowls—whenever I use a plate I feel like I have to make it look pretty.
