Hiya friends!! It’s been a few weeks since I shared a day full of eats so I thought I’d pop in and share! Ready to see What I Ate Wednesday??
Before I dive into the eats, how the heck are ya?! I’ve been super overwhelmed with a very busy family life lately. With multiple family members in and out of the hospital (where my grandmother just passed a month ago…), I’ve been on serious emotional roller coaster. For a few weeks, I took less than ideal care of myself and paid for it by getting sick last week. After a small mental breakdown in my office with the door closed this morning, I’m ready to get back into the healthy habits I love and try to worry less about the things that I can’t control. And with that positive resolution, shall we move onto the eats???
I was very excited to be back in the gym after 4 days off from being sick. Typical half a banana in the car on our way there. No pic, it was early ok?!
Slurped down my smoothie in record speed while catching up on emails. I shared the recipe on my most recent Instagram post but thinned it out with a little extra almond milk so it was sippable, not spoonable.
I had a busy morning and lunch snuck up on me! I packed some leftovers from the weekend: roasted parsnips, Spanish cauliflower rice (recipe to come!), and hummus.
I got some hunger pangs while I had my feet kicked up in my office- fun fact, I have a standing desk! Ok, mostly I just don’t have a chair. But I built stands for my monitors and I usually stand all day. Today, I needed a break and munched on some mini peppers and hummus while sitting in my “guest chairs” with my laptop. Cozy.
We had farewell party for one of my favorite coworkers near the end of the day as he leaves us for Florida. I forgot to take a picture of the chips and guac I snacked on while doing everything in my power to not dissolve into a blubbering mess… Oh, the emotions continue.
John and I stopped by a work event for a few and then came home to leftovers for dinner. I made a Thai coconut curry and rice this weekend and to be honest, it’s alllllllmost intolerably spicy. Oops. Don’t worry, we can handle it!
During the waterworks of this week’s This Is Us, I needed a serious chocolate fix. These babes are ridiculously delicious, but didn’t stop the tears from flowin’.
That caps off What I Ate Wednesday! Have a fantastic week friends!
