What I Ate Wednesday #83: Working for the Weekend

Posted on Updated on

Another week, another What I Ate Wednesday. Well actually, not just any other “another week,” but election week. However, you’d be best going to another blog for political commentary. Though I don’t exactly shy away from discussing sex, death, or even religion, there are people far more qualified to talk politics. What am I missing—love? Anyway, I do hope you guys went out there and voted with your votes yesterday!

As always, thanks to Jenn for hosting the weekly link party. To see more WIAW from other bloggers, visit Peas & Crayons.

Last week, I shared some of what I ate while helping out at the hospital during and just after Hurricane Sandy. This week I’ll give you a glimpse at what I ate while working the weekend.

I actually kind of like working weekends at my current site because the pace is so much more mellow and it gives you more of a chance to talk to other members of the care team, but it’s still, well, working the weekend when you feel like all your friends are outside playing. I like to pack myself a “fancy” salad so at least I have something to look forward to at lunch—and also because the cafeteria all but shuts down anyway. Here’s what I ate on Sunday…

Breakfast: steel-cut oats w/ chia seeds, pumpkin & plum (in one of my new bowls!), topped w/ apple sauce & PB

Lunch: Salad from home and soup for the cafeteria. Mmm, sodium…

Dinner: Random roasted veggies & kale tossed into whole wheat pasta with spices (garlic, oregano, red pepper flakes) and nonfat ricotta; dark chocolate for dessert 

Snack: Plain yogurt w/ frozen blueberries, dried cranberries & cereal 

Do you ever talk about sex, death, religion, or politics? Love?

    I love packing a “fancy” salad, too. It makes me really excited to eat lunch, and it helps me to avoid snacking on garbage snacks all morning long!

    Looks like a good day of eats.

    Your breakfast especially looks tasty.

    I don’t often talk sex, death, religion or politics on my blog. Maybe I should. I talk about them all in real life to my friends and family. They’re hard topics, but I’m glad someone is talking about them.

    I like the yogurt you got there! It’s always a great idea for snacks, don’t you agree?
