After a long weekend of indulgence, a What I Ate Wednesday back in the normal routine is so refreshing! Back in the swing of things!
Hiiii friends. Raise your hand if you’re still feeling the effects of a multi day hangover meets food coma meets sore body from scrubbing the whole house! Oh, just me..? It was a hell of a weekend but I’m honestly pretty happy to return to boring old regular life.
I didn’t workout all weekend so I was eager to get back at it, fueled of course by a banana.
My body was beggggging for veggies so I jammed this smoothie full of them. Banana, cherries, cauli, protein powder, greens powder, ginger, turmeric, and tons of spinach. Like, literally filled the blender with greens. And it was still delish!
It was a busy day back on the grind and I didn’t pause for noms until lunch. We have an ungodly amount of leftovers so I packed some up with lettuce. Leftover beet salad and red cabbage slaw went really well together!
Scarfed down an apple a few minutes after lunch… Sweet tooth satisfied.
There was no way I was going to make it through the day without some extra caffeine. An iced coffee with a healthy pour of almond milk made the rest of the day slightly more doable.
When I got home, I broke into this awesome package from Manitoba Harvest. They sent me a box of their hemp hearts and hemp products to share with my network and friends. How cool! It was my first time trying their toasted hemp seeds and I was quite pleased! They’re crunchy and salty and reminded me of sunflower seeds (except you eat the shells). Be on the lookout for recipes with these little nourishing nuggets coming soon!!
For dinner, more leftovers. I’m so not mad about it either. A lot of people dislike leftovers but honestly, I think it’s my favorite kind of food. Flavors just seem to develop in the fridge. Plus, I’m borderline psycho about food waste… This plate has grilled corn cut off the cob with herb butter, ranch dill potato salad, baked beans, more slaw, and some carrot hummus. I have a very, very happy belly.
My sweet tooth grew legs and lead me straight to cherries and chocolate. Unfortunately, I ate a few too many cherries and ended up with quite a tummy ache. Boo hiss.
Some Anthony Bourdain on Netflix and an early bed time fixed me right up. Have a wonderful week, y’all!
