Another day packed full of homemade, ready to eat, delicious meals! What I Ate Wednesday is yet another lesson on the value of weekend food prep!
Happy Humpdaayyyyy! Hopefully the first half of your week has been smooth and uneventful. I spent the entire day Tuesday thinking it was Wednesday soooo that’s where I’m at this week. Anywho, after a weekend of eating like garbage it feels good to be back in the morning gym rhythm. And you know we split a banana on the way there.
Breakfast was my typical monster smoothie. Sorry to bore you with the same ol’ shiz every week but I mean, if it ain’t broke don’t fix it, right?!
I was hungry early so I snacked on an apple which doesn’t get its time to shine because I forgot to snap a pic. Sorry, Pink Lady, better luck next week.
My 11-noon meeting ended up running until 1:30 (I know, woah) so I was ready to gnaw my arm off by the time I opened my lunch. I’ve been loving this big salad, inspired by the Mujadarra Power Salad at Aladdin’s, one of my fav Greek places around. My version is chocked full of: mixed greens, romaine, carrots, cherry tomatoes, kalamata olives, marinated lentils, and hummus. YUM!! I followed up lunch with this adorable teeny box of raisins because the sweet tooth is strong with this one.
I helped out at an after hours event, so I knew I had to snack up before I left. Polished my my stash of carrots and Lucky’s hummus– it did the trick!
Side Note: Did you hear the good news?!? I’m going to be taking over the Lucky’s Market Instagram account this Saturday, April 1st!! It’s their first time hosting a takeover and I am absolutely HONORED to be working with them. They’re commitment to local, affordable, healthy, balanced, accessible groceries is unmatched. They do amazing things in the local community, including donating 10% of all proceeds from their private label brand (which has a TON of selection!!) right back in to the community. Anyways, be sure you are following them at @luckysmarketcolumbus to follow along with me Saturday and learn even more about why I love them!
Back to the eats! I was SO glad I had whipped up Alexis’s Baked Spaghetti with Kale, Mushrooms, and Tofu Ricotta this weekend. Seriously, I think this might be my favorite Hummusapien recipe of all time, and that’s saying something! Popped it in the microwave for a few minutes while I threw together a quick salad and dug in. I just love not having to slave over dinner on week nights!
After dinner, I snacked on some strawberries and Nutiva chocolate hazelnut spread. Holllyyyyy yum this stuff is good. Unlike the classic beloved hazelnut spread, Nutiva’s version is lower in sugar (by 40%!) and made with fair trade and organic ingredients. Although, you could have totally fooled me. I’d still roll around in a bath of the chocolate-y goodness… Just sayin’.
