Did Tuesday feel like Thursday to anyone else?? I’m having one of those weeks… Let’s close our eyes, dream of yummy noms, and talk about What I Ate Wednesday!
One of these PERFECTLY ripe bananas was the best way to start the day. I just love those spotty little guys. Then off to the gym.
Slurped down this simple smoothie of frozen bananas, some Mocha-flavored Vega protein, and lotsa spinach for breakfast. Deelish.
This week at work, my office is running an Operation Feed campaign. All week, we are holding activities and accepting donations to the Mid-Ohio Foodbank. All the money we raise will go toward feeding fellow Central Ohioans who can’t put enough food on their table. This morning, we went through an activity where we were given only a few dollars, and had to “buy” our breakfast. It was a real challenge to get enough to constitute a full breakfast. My table pooled our money and used the “food pantry” to supplement and came up with something reasonable. But it wasn’t a no-brainer like the way a lot of us experience breakfast and meals in general.
What astounded me most about this experience was how expensive fresh fruit was. They were the highest priced by a long shot. Bagels, granola bars, yogurt were all cheaper. It’s eye opening and speaks volumes to the health issues among our community’s poorest populations. I feel so incredibly grateful to be able to eat a kale-matcha-latee-spirulina-moondust-superfood-smoothie every day. I encourage you to head over to the Mid-Ohio Foodbank’s website to learn more about hunger in Central Ohio and how you can make a difference.
After the demonstrations, in embarrassingly privileged white girl form, I scooped up some extra berries to take back to my desk for a snack…
It was too stunning of a day to not get outside, so my coworker and I took a stroll to Stauf’s for some iced coffee. After that, I ate my lunch of a leftover cauliflower and spinach salad. It was meh.
My mouth was on fiyaaa from the spicy cauliflower so I munched on carrots and celery until it felt better they were gone.
Why do I always forget to take a picture of my apple? I had an apple. You get it.
Dinner was SOO yummy- but I also forgot to take a picture of it. Lucky for you, it’s coming up on the blog soon so you get a sneak preview of the pics! It’s soba noodles with lots of yummy green mix ins and a creamy green sauce. I’d love name suggestions because I’m totally blocked… Leave a comment!!
After dinner and a massage [ahh so good], I munched on a few bites of this vegan scone my mom grabbed me at Whole Foods this weekend. Pretty yummy but super not healthy. Oh well. Balance right?!
Chew your food with an extra dash of appreciation today, and have a fantastic week!
