how girls eat.

Posted Oct 03 2012 7:03am
Sometimes, when I get together with my friends, we eat in a really girly way. It's sort of like a pendulum. One night, we'll celebrate with champagne and cupcakes, and then the next day will be salads and water. Whatever. It works for us. Here's What I Ate Wednesday Weekendwiaw
At first, I planned on showing yesterday's meals. I took pictures of them and loaded them onto my computer, and then realized...this is really boring. I pretty much eat the same thing every week! Expect something green in the early morning, some oatmeal in the late morning, and a variation of black beans, sweet potatoes, quinoa, salad, chips and salsa, and fruit for lunch and dinner.

Instead, I'm going to tell you about my awesome weekend! K?

(disclaimer: this was in September, which was before my  announcement to swear off sugar ...and I'm kind of kicking myself for telling everyone about that, but it's definitely making me stick to it...darn)

2 of my friends from college flew/drove in to visit me in Chicago over the weekend! This meant I kicked off the weekend by cleaning my apartment, which was embarrassingly dirty...


.....and baking, because everyone loves walking into an apartment that smells like pumpkin bread:)

Super-Charge Me! cookies  and vegan pumpkin bread.
These girls are ridiculous and awesome and we instantly act about 8 years younger than we actually are whenever we hang out.....like, the instant they walked into my apartment, they wrote this on my chalkboard and said, omg, this song defines us! 
We're totally "those girls" who I would normally make fun of....and then we start acting like that. If I saw anyone else dancing through the grocery store aisles or singing Taylor Swift in the street in the middle of the night, I would be so annoyed. But this weekend called for an exception :):)




do you see anything healthy on this table? because I don't...
But in the morning, I kicked things off with some green juice and a bowl of oats. Oh goodness, my well rounded diet...

oats, coconut milk, vanilla, apple butter, and 1/2 a piece of pumpkin bread crumbled on top.
And that's pretty much all I ate on Saturday until we went out in the evening.  Zocolo  in River North was deeelish. We got margaritas and a ton of fried appetizers, and called it a dinner. It works. 


...and then we burned off all of those fried calories by dancing the night away!


But after a night of rich food, Sunday morning was right back to a bowl of oatmeal and some tea. The pendulum just keeps on swinging...


After this awesome weekend of good times, I was ready to kick off the week with a healthier diet, which means as many greens as I can get, and no sugar!


I know it's not the healthiest thing for me to have tiramisu and chocolate wine (haha...it might have happened and I might have loved it) on Friday night, and then hardly anything to eat all of Saturday afternoon, but on an occasional weekend, it's pretty much the greatest.

Do you ever have a pendulum diet when you're hanging out with girl friends?
Favorite food for getting back on track with a healthy diet?


Happy Wednesday!Kelsey
