Hello & happy What I Ate Wednesday (which is actually Tuesday, but you get the picture.)
Breakfast was eaten around 5:00 AM (yes, I’m serious), and was photographed on my kitchen floor.
Oat bran for the win!
- 1/3 cup Bob’s Red Mill Oat Bran
- 2 tbsp chia seeds using chia seed method
- Almond milk
- 1 tbsp hemp protein
- Vanilla extract
- Topped with coconut butter & strawberries
Around 11:00 AM I had to perform a partnered dialogue in my sign language class, which ended up being quite a memorable presentation. My partner had the brilliant idea to bring in her pet snake to fulfill the visual aid requirement, and I was all game.
.from a distance, that is
I snacked on some chopped carrots & celery as we watched the other presentations
Lunch was Salad
Romaine, spinach, avocado, celery, ginger dressing, balsamic vinegar and “ghetto tuna” which is pretty much just canned tuna cooked on the stovetop (not salmon this time!)
And a rice cake that was eaten as I prepped.
To be honest, yesterday evening my appetite went a liiiittle downhill. Breakfast was great, lunch was pretty good, but by the time 5:00 PM rolled around (the time that I usually start breaking out the pots & pans for dinner), my stomach was NOT having it. It had been hours since lunch, but I felt like food was the last thing I wanted in my body. Does anyone else ever have moments like that?
Finally around 6:00 PM, I decided enough was enough so I heated up a simple Muir Glen minestrone soup minus the noodles, plus some bonus chickpeas, with a roasted handful of green beans on the side.
This soup has become my go-to back up plan whenever in need of a quickie meal with no time or brainpower to think about it. It also helps that it tastes just about as homemade as anything I could’ve made on my own
I spent the rest of the evening watching an episode of Desperate Housewives, and trying to convince Popcorn that his new Christmas-in-March candy cane bodysuit WAS, in fact, a good look for him.
Looks like someone needs to go reread my post on body image..
