What I Ate Wednesday: October 7, 2015

in Other

Happy Wednesday my favorite veggie lovers!

I hope your week is off to a great start.  I started my new job last Thursday and so far so good.  I have a ton to learn, but everyone has been very nice which has helped.  I also love the atmosphere and am full of energy the second that I step on campus.  Even still, I am a bit stressed with all of the newness.  But I am trying to remind myself that being overwhelmed at first is normal.  It would be pretty boring if it wasn’t a challenge, right?

Despite this big career change, I have been sure to continue eating delicious and healthy foods.  I have also been sure to make my family and friends an even bigger part of my days now that they are so close by.  This past Saturday I decided on a whim to head home for about 24 hours.  I wanted to see Jeremy, my parents, and my puppy dogs!  I just so happened to eat a lot of delicious food along the way, too.

What I Ate WednesdayWhat I Ate Wednesday: October 7, 2015

WIAWI started my day with a grocery trip to Lucky’s Market.  By the time I arrived back home, I was starving.  I whipped up every single thing that I was craving that morning: a chicken and apple sausage served with Bubbie’s sauerkraut, baby carrots, and a ripe banana with almond butter.  I am trying a little reintroduction of almonds to see how my body reacts.  I am hoping for all good feelings.

WIAW 2Once breakfast was over, I made the hour and twenty-minute drive to my hometown.  After some puppy love and chatting with my mom, I whipped up lunch with the food I brought with me.  I baked a purple sweet potato in the oven (seasoned with coconut oil and cinnamon) and topped it with more almond butter.  I also sautéed half of a bunch of kale and steamed brussels sprouts from the freezer.  Veggie overload?  No way!  This was super delicious and totally hit the spot.

WIAW 3A couple of hours later, my mom and I went on a walk.  I snacked on an organic Red Delicious apple along the way.

WIAW 4Once we arrived home, I downed some water and half a bottle of this kombucha.  This was my first time trying the citrus flavor and I loved it.  I will absolutely be buying it again.

WIAW 6My parents treated Jeremy and me to dinner at a local restaurant called Atlas.  I spoke with them ahead of time and they were super accommodating to my dietary requests.  I ordered a seven ounce Wagyu beef burger with only salt and black pepper.  I had it served over a bed of lettuce with onion.  I chose asparagus for my side and had it steamed instead of cooked in oil.  Everything was really delicious and I loved the local, farm-to-table aspect.  I will absolutely be returning for more meals in the future.

WIAW 5Jeremy, my mom, and I finished out the evening by watching Pitch Perfect 2.  I munched on some of these plantain dippers during the movie.  These were quite delicious and the perfect potato chip replacement.  We all enjoyed the movie, but I think everyone would agree that it was not nearly as good as the first one.

That’s a wrap for a weekend day of eats back home.  Simple and delicious, thank you very much!
