Happy Humpday! I’ve had a busy week at work and home but I’m feeling productive and energetic- woo! Let’s dig into What I Ate Wednesday.
Last week, I was feeling exhausted and fatigued every morning and throughout the day. I suspect it had to do with the season change and decreasing amount of daylight, but either way I’m feeling much better this week! Alive enough to munch on a [grossly under ripe] banana before hitting the gym for a run and lifting.
This emerald green smoothie is chock full of frozen banana, blueberries, raspberries, and cauliflower blended up with powdered peanut butter, vanilla Vega protein, lots of spirulina, and almond milk. Lots of plant-based power to kick off a busy day!
My morning was hectic so I had to tote my Kale Salad with me to a Nonprofit IT Forum luncheon. And boy, am I glad I did. The event (which was fantastic) served gas station pizza for lunch (not so fantastic). I didn’t want to look even more snobby than I already did with my pile of kale, so you’ll have to pretend this picture is actually of my lunchbox in a room full of fellow nerds.
I snacked on an apple (another recycled pic, I suck) to get me through the end of the workday and then some grapes to hold me over until dinner. Fruit is my absolute favorite snack!
Dinner was a bombbbb a$$ feast. I stared by roasting a gargantuan sweet potato. DO IT: cut monster in half, wrap in foil, and roast at 425 for 45 minutes. NEXT. Simple salad with Dijon mustard and cherry tomatoes. No frills. THEN reheated some leftover turmeric roasted cauliflower. LAST served the whole thing with the creamiest, most perfect avocado there ever was. DONE.
Snacked on some of my absolute favorite chocolate in the whole wide world while watching This is Us (omg you guys). Th-th-th-that’s all folks!
