I spent the last week unplugging for a little bit. It felt good to take a couple days off, I just wasn’t feeling sitting down and writing so… I didn’t. Funny how that works. But I’m glad to be back for What I Ate Wednesday! My posting has been pretty sporadic lately but classes are starting back up on Monday so things should be a little more regular once I get back into the groove of classes.
(Thanks Jenn for hosting!)
But before we get to the food I have to have a running gush for a second. I ran 7 miles this morning! NEW PDR! It was tough and my feet are a little sore but I did it! I always doubt myself during longer runs but the feeling when I finish them is amazingggg.
And now for the food.
I’ve been falling back into a pattern with my food and I’m loving it. It might be a little boring to eat the same thing everyday but after the craziness of holiday sweets I’m loving boring Gimme some of those veggies.
Surprise, surprise, it’s oatmeal!
I’ve doing a terrible job getting enough protein lately. Carbs are just so much more delicious But I’ve been making a conscious effort to get more protein in because I feel way more satisfied when I do.
I think I’ve eaten the same thing for lunch everyday for the past week and I’m 100% okay with that.
Tofu, kale, mixed frozen veggies and liquid aminos. Plant powered goodness in a bowl! It’s a good combo, light but filling and so many veggies. Love it.
Sweet potato, peanut butter, cocoa powder and cinnamon. It might sound a little weird, but it’s one tasty combo. I also had some un-pictured frozen strawberries and Baker’s chocolate (yes, the baking chocolate addiction is back full force!)
Dinner was a there’s-not-a-lot-of-veggies-left-in-the-fridge-so-let’s-see-what-happens kinda meal. I chopped up half of a leftover bell pepper and onion, sliced up some baby carrots, tofu, threw in the rest of a bag of kale I had, added some marinara and then I added some liquid aminos because I’m obsessed and can’t help myself. My bottle is almost out and I need to get some more ASAP! I might have a problem.
These are way to easy to eat. They’re not as good as Trader Joe’s Sea Salt & Turbinado Sugar Dark Chocolate Almonds but that doesn’t slow me down too much.
I also had some homemade hot chocolate.
Chocolate was calling to me and I answered
Chocolate of Vanilla?
Are you a creature of habit when it comes to food, or do you like a little variety?
