What I Ate Wednesday #145

Posted on Updated on


cab viewGood morning and Happy What I Ate Wednesday. It’s also a full moon day. Anyone else ever feel more tired the week of a full moon? Just the other day I was talking to someone about how I’m up like a f***ing shot every morning, but go figure, Monday morning, I totally thought my second alarm clock was a dream, and 7:30 a.m. found me in a cab heading to work. The universe was obviously laughing at me. 

I then proceeded to show up for a meeting that wasn’t scheduled until Tuesday. I’m shocked I managed to stay awake, much less get any real work done. Yet somehow…

Anyway, I thought we’d backtrack a little to Sunday this week, which was spent cleaning and hanging with friends at a cookie exchange party (where the hosts surprised us all by announcing they’re getting married!). As always, many thanks to the lovely Jenn of Peas & Crayons for hosting the weekly link party—hop on over there to see more WIAW from other bloggers!

  • Breakfast: Savory oats with zucchini and spinach cooked in, later topped with tahini (recycled pic)
  • Lunch: Big salad with pulled quicken, goat cheese, and balsamic; toast with hummus and roasted eggplant
  • Dinner: Chickpeas, kale, and mushrooms in a spicy tomato sauce (similar to this recipe—perhaps I’ll post a new recipe soon)
  • Snacks: Greek yogurt with fig preserves & cereal, bites of a few cookies at the party; an after-dinner chocolate treat from my friend Surkhab; sliced banana with non-fat ricotta before bed

Do you get tired during the full moon? What’s your favorite cookie?

    Maybe that explains why I’ve been so tired the last few nights! This so-called “Big Salad” of yours sounds awesome!

      Haha could very well be! Despite the cold, I’ve been craving salads like crazy lately. Not exactly seasonal, but satisfying.

    My favorite cookies are snickerdoodles or gingerbread men.

      Both of those sound great! I could probably eat gingerbread any time of year.

    […] I’ve been working a lot of Saturdays at the hospital, so a mellow Friday evening with an early  bedtime suited me just fine. Besides, full moons make me tired. […]
