Welcome to another WIAW! Lest my blog turn into an alternating bombardment of Simple Saturdays & What I Ate Wednesdays, I figured I’d do an every-other-week sort of thing. You can’t possibly care that much about what silly little me puts into my mouth that you want to see a WIAW every single week, right? You most certainly care more about things like how I turned elegant chocolate peppermint cake slices into gluttonous, semi-liquid, transcendental goo, and what happened when I took leftover eggnog, white chocolate peppermint m&ms, and flour and
tried to succeeded in making a
totally awesome cake, right?
If that is, in fact, all you care about and you think I should do away with these little bi-monthly food diaries, don’t hesitate to say so. I’ll shut my trap, put away my camera phone (no matter how much I love love love it), and continue on with the real recipes.
One Year Ago: Healthy Pumpkin Pancakes
Two Years Ago: I Cheated With Trader Joe’s Gingerbread Cookie Mix
But let’s begin! Breakfast was some plain non-fat Chobani with a very lovely homemade cherry-orange topping (recipe to come).
After rounds, I snuck back to the office and ate a banana smeared with some cinnamon-PB (I just mixed some cinnamon into peanut butter, nothing fancy).
Lunch was a pretty standard combination on my part: mixed greens, carrots, broccoli, sliced almonds, and hummus. I also sprinkled nutritional yeast on top and had a few whole grain crackers on the side.
Before I left the hospital for the day, I snuck in my afternoon snack – a chocolate Kashi bar full of yummy things like sweet potatoes and black beans. I also had a small handful of PB-filled pretzels that another dietitian had brought into the office.
By the time dinner rolled around, I was definitely hungry again! We ate late, which is usually the case when I go to L’s for dinner, so between that and a pretty intense workout when I got home from the internship, I was more than excited about these Kasha & Portobello veggie burgers. Originally I was going to have an open-faced sandwich with whole wheat bread, but then I found out there were also arapas, or corn cakes, so I swapped the bread out for one of those. Topped off with a little mango habanero hot sauce with a nice little salad on the side, it was an excellent meal.
