Hello! Welcome to another installment of What I Ate Wednesday! Thanks to Miss Jenn for hosting this share session and for allowing us to enjoy and appreciate what we eat. A friend recently told me, “I love how excited you get about food,” and I thought it was a wonderful compliment. I hope my appreciation for food comes through on my blog, and this is one of the reasons I chose to begin participating in WIAW.
Breakfast: French toast, banana, and iced coffee (6:15am)
Last night I mentioned my plans to make French toast this morning, and it actually happened. At Trader Joe’s on Sunday, I bought a loaf of Tuscan bread. We used it for paninis Sunday night, and now being a few days old, I knew it would make great French toast. It felt good to break out of my overnight oats routine with something I normally reserve for weekends. Someone may have licked the last remnants of maple syrup off the plate…
Snack: string cheese (10:15am)
Yup, same as last week and no picture. Today I quickly ate my cheese during my third hour while the kids were working on computers in the lab.
Lunch: fried rice, cantaloupe, mini York Peppermint Patty (12:45am)
This rice was even better today! I mixed in the rest of the shrimp and some chicken and drizzled a little more soy sauce over it. Some veggies were in this dish: shredded carrots, onions, scallions, and edamame (vegetable?). The cantaloupe was sweet and juicy, although I think it was from Peru (#buyinglocalepicfail). The peppermint patty is from my post-Easter candy purchase and satisfied my need to pure sugar. I could never do the Paleo diet.
Snack: Toast with sunflower seed butter and a banana
Normally I try to not eat too big of a snack after school, but I made a running date with a girl I ran with once and who I am friends with on Daily Mile. She has eight miles scheduled, and although I don’t need to run until tomorrow and I only need to do five, I agreed to meet up. My weekday runs aren’t nearly as enjoyable as my long Saturday run, namely because I do them alone. Yah for running buddies! So my food…uh, no vegetables (not doing so great with the “extra cup of veggies” theme today). I chose to eat my standard pre-run breakfast because I know it sits well in my stomach. Also, I knew we wouldn’t be eating dinner until 8:00pm.
Dinner: buffalo chicken sausage and salad (8:00pm)
So there ya go – another day of eats. I wasn’t very good about my veggie intake, so maybe I’ll try to make up for it tomorrow.
April Photo a Day theme: hair
Below the stools by our breakfast bar, the dog hair accumulates and multiplies. I have no idea WHY it goes here. It is kind of gross…sorry to end a post all about food with an image of Golden Retriever hair.
Have a good night!
Do you ever make more involved breakfasts during the week?
If you had to take a picture of hair, what would you do it of?
