And, just like that, we’re halfway through the week.
I ended up with a surprise class cancellation yesterday (my prof was sick – there’s one hell of a nasty virus going around campus right now. I’ve been using hand sanitizer like it’s my job) and I don’t have any of my classes on Mondays so…this is definitely one hell of a short week for me. Definitely no complaints here!
But, because it’s Wednesday:
That means it’s WIAW time. Thanks to Jenn for her fabulous hosting duties!
I feel like I usually end up showing you eats from the day before, or from a special occasion that I had during the week. So for a change, I’m going to show you last Saturday’s eats. I don’t think my meals change up too much on weekends, but I’m more likely to to take a snacking-throughout-the-afternoon approach than I am during the week.
So, here we go:
Once in a while I’ll take the time to make myself a fancy breakfast on the weekend, but most of the time…oatmeal. Oats made with egg whites, unsweetened vanilla almond milk, vanilla stevia and cinnamon, topped with peanut butter (deliciously crunchy), blueberry jam and an egg. Never fails me.
The bakery at the market I go to always has samples – BIG ones. You know how most places hand out little nibbles of cheese or about 1/8 of a slice of quick bread for a sample? This bakery gives out cookies by the half. Seriously awesome – I take advantage often (and I have yet to be disappointed with anything I’ve sampled or bought).
Or, in the case of tarts – 1/4 of a tart. Coconut-raspberry was the choice on Saturday – delicious.
After I got home and got all my groceries away, it was lunchtime.
A chicken burger with buffalo sauce and guacamole with a side salad.
I’m pretty sure I could eat guacamole everyday. It is amazing.
I hadn’t made them before, but they’re not bad. They’re not really sweet (I didn’t really except them to be though), so I prefer them with peanut butter or something on top (more specifically, chocolate peanut butter).
I would make them again, but I would throw chocolate chips or something in the batter. Because really, chocolate improves everything.
So throughout the afternoon I nibbled a bit on the bars – you know how when you cut bars or squares, you get one side that’s a little jagged? Whenever I notice that, it needs to be corrected immediately. Cut off and eaten
Eric was at a conference all day and neither of us felt like cooking when he got home, so we took a walk down to Subway.
My go-to sub: chicken breast and swiss cheese with lettuce, tomato, cucumber, green pepper, pickles, black olives, and banana peppers with honey mustard. Basically, every veggie except for onions and green olives. Delicious.
We ate there, but I opened a Zevia upon returning.
Ginger Root Beer = Favourite.
I hadn’t really eaten a lot in the afternoon, so my appetite caught up with me later.
Greek yogurt, a deep chocolate vitatop, and chocolate peanut butter. I went back for at least another two giant spoonfuls of chocolate peanut butter…I’m slightly depressed that I’m almost out (but looking forward to the inevitable oats in a jar).
So – there’s my eats for a Saturday. Now, I hope your Wednesday is fabulous!
