*Note: I love how many people have weird pinkie toes. I don’t feel so alone in my freak toe-ness! :-p
Happy first day of Spring!
Yea, I’m calling bullshit on that. Where are you warm weather?!
But I digress…
Happy WIAW! Many thanks to Jenn for her hosting duties, as per usual.
So, for once I feel like I actually followed the WIAW theme of the month. These are my eats from yesterday, and there is a surprisingly large amount of green things. At least, by my standards.
So, on with it!
A usual around here, my old-lady Fibre 1 with a sprinkle of coconut chia granola and unsweetened vanilla almond milk. 2 eggs + 1/4 cup egg whites on the side.
I’m pretty much the most uninventive person when it comes to breakfast. I love getting creative with dinners and the occasional lunch, but at 8:00 am apparently I’m incapable of putting together something fancy for breakfast. I’m ok with that though!
A scoop of Watermelon-y BCAAs pre and post workout. Yesterday was leg day, AKA: I-am-really-going-to-hate-stairs-for-the-next-two-days day. Buuut it’s still my favourite
I swung by the bookstore at my school on the way home because they were having a bargain book sale – each book was $2.50.
Woot cheap books! I picked up:
- Entertaining with Sopranos (I have no intention of hosting an Italian wedding or Christening anytime soon, but the recipes looked good)
- The Great Christmas Cookie Swap Cookbook (It is never to early to start thinking about Christmas cookies. Never)
- Suck it, wonder woman! – Olivia Munn (she’s hilarious, so I’m intrigued to read this)
- a Laura Lippman book of short stories. As much I love my epically long novels (I’m looking at you, Game of Thrones) I seriously adore a ten-page story now and then.
Although, before I left I noticed that they had a ‘Goosebumps’ book – Revenge of the Lawn Gnomes. I kind of really wished I had picked that up. I was obsessed with those books when I was a kid. I’m pretty sure I had the first 50 or so in the series?
Post gym = lunchtime.
A massaged kale salad (olive oil, lemon juice, garlic and honey, then topped with salt and pepper) with chopped carrots, buffalo-marinated tofu, and a piece of Irish soda bread with a bit of butter. I’m not going to lie, I kind of feel healthier just looking at that picture (kale and tofu have that effect, apparently).
And side note – I’m not a huge bread person (I like it, but I don’t generally go out of my way for it; I prefer potatoes, pasta, oats and rice for my carbs) but I’m obsessed with that stuff. I give it a month, maybe two max before I make it again. There was definitely a small hunk of two in the afternoon that escaped pictures
Then an afternoon of school-related reading (what else is new?) and marking before class. First, a snack:
Cottage cheese, strawberry jam, peanut butter and a crumbled graham cracker. Simple and delicious.
Second side salad of the day – I’m impressed with myself.
I had a chicken in the slow cooker all day, which I shredded when I got home from class. I cooked up half an onion, and tossed everything in buffalo sauce before shoving it into wraps.
That means I had buffalo-flavoured proteins for lunch and dinner yesterday. And I’m giving you a buffalo recipe tomorrow. Is it fair to say that I really, really like that stuff right now? (yes).
That would be a graham cracker topped with cookie butter and chocolate chips. It was one of the smartest things I’ve done lately.
I wasn’t too hungry last night, but just to keep me going until morning:
A few spoonfuls from my giant container of coconut Oikos. Ending the day on a good note.
Hope your Wednesday is fabulous!
<— Would you rather read a book of short stories or a long novel?
<— What book collections did you have when you were a kid? I also had pretty sizable Nancy Drew, the Baby-Sitters Club, and Sweet Valley High collections!
<— Favourite carb? It’s a tough question, I know.
