What I Ate Wednesday

What I Ate Wednesday on Halloween is full of treats- no tricks! 

Happy Wednesday! It’s been a while since I checked in with a What I Ate Wednesday post… work has been insanely busy and I’ve just been really drained in the evenings. But there’s light at the end of the busy season tunnel and the holidays are right around the corner! Not a lot else to report so let’s get into the eats, shall we?!

I haven’t been sleeping great (although melatonin has been a HUGE help) so I opted for extra sleep instead of the gym. Slurped down a smoothie at my desk before I remembered to snap a pic. Oops! Today’s flavor was pumpkin with lotssss of cinnamon. So yum!

Switched up the typical scarf-down-food-while-working routine and went to lunch with a friend! We went to Two Dollar Radio’s new headquarters and were both obsessed! I had been there before but am still in love with their book selection, all-vegan coffee, cafe, and bar, and just general chill vibe. Our lunches were FANTASTIC! My sandwich was the “Bad Hombre”- corn + kale burger, barbecue sauce, pimento cheese, sliced red onion, jalapenos, on locally-made ciabatta. It was TO DIEEE FOR. My friend got the “Vegan Lunchpail”- chorizo, house mozzarella, jalapenos, roasted red peppers, cucumbers, tomato, lemon pepper aioli, hot sauce, on locally-made sourdough and was equally thrilled. If you’re in the Columbus area, I can’t recommend this place enough!

My lunch was soooo filling so it was a rare no snack day! Gasp! John was starving when I got home so I had a small bowl of chili and a few bites of his organic tater tots. [Lol- never thought I’d say the words “organic tater tots”…]

We bought a shiz ton of these mini bags of pretzels but sadly, only had two trick or treaters! Oh well, more for me to snack on while finishing Stranger Things muahahaha…

I spotted these goofy-looking Moondrop grapes at the store this weekend and HAD to have them. Good news- they’re also absolutely delish. Perfect for night time snacking.

And that’s it, friends! Have a wonderful first day of November!

Another busy day of What I Ate Wednesday eats! Happy Humpday! 

Hey there babes! I’ve been admittedly bad at remembering these posts with how crazy busy life has been… Super long days spent hunched over my keyboard leave little room for snapping pics of my lunch. But I managed to take a few today in the midst of the madness!

I’m working through another nasty back injury so our gym routine has been spotty. I’m trying to not let it bother me too much but I definitely miss my morning sweat sesh. Although I must admit, sleeping in late (6:30) this morning felt very refreshing. Anyways, after a good night’s sleep, this pumpkin smoothie was delightful.

My day was packed with meetings and I forgot to take a pic of the apple I chowed down while running from one to another.

Lunch today was a picture of fall! I’ve heard it’s hot outside and not at all fall-like but it’s always a cool 70 degrees in my prison cell office. 😉 I roasted a bunch of the veggies from the farmers market this weekend for lunches this week. Sweet potatoes, delicate squash, apples, Brussels sprouts, chickpeas, and kale. I dipped it all in the leftover of my Caramelized Onion Hummus I made and it was deeeelish.

Our dinners have been less than organized but I’m not complaining! Toast with Treeline nut-based cheese, steamed broccoli, and Shishito peppers. I didn’t make my herb dipping sauce but we had some bottled dressing that was a decent stand-in.

I had a raging sweet tooth after dinner so I dug into some leftovers of a sweet treat recipe I’m testing. I’m not going to divulge what it is yet, but let’s just say…. it’s SO fall. And it tastes a lot better than it looks…

That’s its friends, have a wonderful rest of the week!!
