I thought I would participate in WIAW this week. Want more info? Head over to Peas and Crayons to learn more.
It would be WIAW… except is is WIAS – What I Ate Sunday.
Breakfast post gym – Pumpkin Pancakes made this way. No picture…oops. But you can imagine. I topped the pancakes with 1/2 cup greek yogurt and a scoop of peanut butter. Oh and coffee.
Morning snack while studying for my job interview for Monday – apple with cinnomin and holiday tea
Lunch – Left over turkey, cranberry sauce, brie cheese on toasted rye. OMG wonderful. Best ever. And some veggies
Afternoon tea at a Eva’s Cafe in Chicago with a friend. Lots of girl talk. It was a super cute place with a Christmas tree!!
Afternoon snack. I was starving around 4 pm. I wanted everything. I had a random plate: banana, almond butter, hummus and Kashi crackers. Unpictured is a glass of milk and two clementines. Consumed in bed. After the picture I moved and the bananas and hummus got a bit mixed together. It was garlic hummus. Not ideal but still eaten. Note to self – while eating in bed ALWAYS sounds like a great idea, eating in bed NEVER is a good idea.
Dinner – I LOVE beets!! So I decided to make borscht (beet soup) using this recipe. The only change I made was doubling the beans so it was more a substantial meal. I ate mine with spinach, cous cous and a scoop of ricotta cheese. It was SO GOOD. But ONLY make this if you like beets!!! I also roasted up some delicata squash (my second favorite squash type), cauliflower and Brussels sprouts. Yummmmm.
I ALWAYS have a snack before bed. Even if I’m not hungry. But when I’m not hungry, I still WANT to eat something. So I do. I’ve never said I do the intuitive eating thing. I don’t eat in the morning before I work out (usually) so I like to be nice and full when I go to sleep. For the past, I dunno, 6 months, I’ve had this every night before bed. Call it a quirk, call it an obsession, call it OCD. I call it wonderful. Scoop of Sunflower Protein Powder, plain low-fat yogurt, and pumpkin pie spice. And one or two (or twelve) spoonfuls of peanut butter. If you look notice in the picture it seems I am putting curry powder in my yogurt. DO NOT DO THIS. It doesn’t really taste that great. This was an error and I suggest Trader Joe’s get a little more creative with their spice jars. Perhaps different color lids?
That was fun. Maybe I’ll do WIAW again sometime. Sorta a lot of work. So we’ll see.
