The 13th of May, eh? Could it be that we are seriously almost halfway through May? Let me tell you, this year is faallyyying by. On the one hand, I am excited because that means June will be here soon. I have a lot of fun things planned for next month. On the other hand, it scares me a bit. At this rate, summer will come and go quicker than we can bat an eye. Since the months of June through October are generally my favorites (except Christmas, of course), I want things to slow down just a wee bit.
One thing that I do not want to slow down, though, is the rate at which I have been making and eating delicious food. Let’s check out what I scarfed down this past Saturday.
I had a little bit of a difficult time deciding what I wanted for breakfast on Saturday morning. I was craving a breakfast sandwich, an apple with almond butter, and peas. Random, I know. I had plans to go to a Pilates Fusion class at Sweat Cycle and Soul, so I decided I had better not have such a filling breakfast. Instead, I rolled with the thing I was craving the most: the breakfast sandwich! I toasted up the last of my gluten-free bread and topped it with vegan Field Roast Chao cheese and a fried egg. It was the perfect fuel for my workout.
I decided I better actually eat something substantial for lunch. I chose one of my current obsessions: canned tuna in split pea soup. This time, however, I served it with rice cakes instead of over toast since I was out of GF bread. This was good, but it is definitely much tastier over toast.
I needed a little something to tide me over between lunch and dinner. I decided on my favorite weekend afternoon snack: a green smoothie! In the mix was unsweetened vanilla almond milk, cold water, chocolate Vega One <–affiliate link, frozen banana, frozen pineapple, frozen zucchini, frozen kale, and fresh spinach. I promise, it surprisingly did not even taste healthy!
I spent my Saturday night with some of my favorite people: Erin and Jordan. We started our evening out with some wine, crackers, and cheese.
Then it was time for dinner! I ate a grilled Hillary’s veggie burger, fresh cantaloupe, and roasted brussel sprouts. Everything was so good. I may or may not have followed up my first glass of wine with a couple more, too.
I arrived back to my apartment around 9:30. I felt tired, but also hungry. I sliced up an apple, microwaved it for about 45 seconds, and topped it with ground cinnamon. It turns out that I was not as hungry as I thought I was. I ate about half of this and then decided I was full and ready for bed.
This was a totally random, slightly snacky day full of tons of “mini meals” spread throughout. I loved every second and every bite of it.
