What I Ate Wednesday– a day in the life of a busy working woman! A snack here, some kale there, and lots and lots of coffee!
Hidee hooooo chickadees! Happy Humpday! Your girl has been werk, werk, werk, werk, werkin’! And by that I mean my eats have been pretty gosh darn boring and simple. I’ve been thinking about doing a “What I Ate This Weekend” post just so you poor souls don’t have to see the same ol’ shiz over and over again! Any interest? I promise there are far fewer veggies and a few more beers. More to come!
As the sun rises, so does my sleepy a$$. Per usual, John and I split a banana before hitting the squat rack. No picture because it’s dark af at 5:30am.
There’s just nothing this body craves after a workout like a smoothie. Preferably my Chocolate Cherry Beet Smoothie. Nope, still not sick of it. Oh and this is my face because I realized I don’t show it on here often.
After an AMAZING coffee meeting with a super inspiring babe, I was so hyped up on caffeine my shaky hands spilled the last 1/4 of my cup of joe into my purse with my laptop. KEWL. Think it miiiiiight be time to scale back on that coffee consumption again…
If you think I’m crazy for spending bookoo bucks on bags of kale chips every week, let’s get one thing straight. I only buy these when they are on WooHoo (Kroger speak for clearance) and marked down to $1.99. They’re still not the cheapest but man, I love them.
Sometimes I’m amazed by my ability to cram a literal fart ton of leafy greens into one tupperware container. I should put it on my resume. “Lettuce Cramming Artist”. I dig it. Anywho, this monstrous salad is a whole bunch of leftover Blueberry Corn Summer Salad piled on top of romaine, beet greens, and topped with extra sunflower sprouts. I brought a jar of extra dressing with me for the week and doused the greens in it. Oh! And my lovely coworker who knows me oh so well brought me a fancy new bevvie to try. This sparkling apple cider vinegar drink was so delicious and refreshing! A bit sweet for my taste but I would definitely drink it again.
My eyes were bleeding from staring at spreadsheets for so many hours and I needed a break… I brewed a cup of decaf coffee to trick my heavy eyelids into staying open. Oh, and polished off the rest of the bag of kale chips. Then right back at it!
My poor fried little brain needed a break (albeit short-lived) from the computer screen so I took a few minutes to play with my food. Check out this gorgeous plate! I sliced thin eggplant in half lengthwise, drizzled with avocado oil and S&P, and had John get them nice and charred on the grill. Maybe 8 minutes? Meanwhile, I mixed tahini, plain soy yogurt, grated garlic, lemon juice, and S&P to make a tahini yogurt sauce. Plated up the eggplant, drizzled with the sauce, dolloped on some pesto I made with farmer’s market basil this weekend, and topped with mint leaves from the garden. We fancy huh?? Not pictured is the hugh jass pile of leftover grilled corn I gobbled down on the side.
Dat’s it. Let’s enjoy some more exciting eats next week, shall we?
