April already? Is this real life? When they say that time goes by more quickly as you age, they are right. Time has been flying. Noticing that now at the age of 26 scares me a little bit because it makes me think that by the time I am 50, one year will seem like one month. Let’s hope it is not that bad 😉
Let’s stop talking about “bad” things, though, and focus on the good…like food! Food is always good in my book.
What I Ate
Wednesday Friday: April 2, 2014
I woke up extra early to get going on the day so I snacked on a rice cake topped with pumpkin butter until I was ready for a full breakfast.
Holy green! When I first arrived to work, I drank my daily smoothie. This smoothie was extra green, which I loved. In the mix: unsweetened coconut milk, french vanilla Vega One, frozen banana, frozen cranberries, frozen strawberries, and lots of spinach.
More green with this one! The second part of my breakfast included two pieces of toasted Ezekiel bread topped with mashed avocado and sea salt.
On the side I ate scrambled eggwhites cooked with a bit of hot sauce and black pepper.
No banana again. Crazy, right? Instead, I ate fresh raspberries and black grapes.
I think I see a theme going on here. Lots of green, eh? The first part of my lunch was two platefuls of salad topped with Whole Foods lemon tahini dressing. I love that stuff.
I also ate a veggie wrap. In the sprouted Ezekiel tortilla was hummus, nutritional yeast, spinach, sauerkraut, black olives, onions, cucumbers, and red peppers…basically everything that I had in my fridge. It ended up being a fantastic combination.
Celery and peanut butter again. And yes, this is the same picture I have posted like the last three weeks. What can I say, I seem to forget about picture taking once the afternoon hits.
I got out of work early at 3 and ate this tasty Larabar on my way to Target and the grocery store.
Lot of snacks were going on this day. I ate an apple to tide me over while making dinner.
Dinner was a barbecue lentil sandwich on toasted Ezekiel bread topped with sriracha coleslaw and served alongside a pickle. This was deeelicious. I promise, I will post the recipe soon!
Finally, I finished off the day by snacking on a whole ‘lotta this popcorn. It is vegan and cheesy and oh-so-delicious! I am loving all of these new popcorn flavors that I have been trying lately.
