What I Ate Wednesday

Happy rainy Wednesday, folks! The weather here has changed like seven times today and its currently down pouring.

Breakfast started off with a delicious yogurt bowl on the couch.

This had banana, apple, chia seeds, granola, and slivered almonds. I love yogurt bowls. My mom’s homemade yogurt is absolutely the best I’ve ever had. Store bought yogurt just doesn’t cut it for me anymore. 

Lunch was half a Tomato, Basil, Mozzarella sandwich from Cosi, lemonade, and a green salad topped with cucumber and carrots.

The medication I am taking for this allergic reaction/rash/devil parasite makes me so drowsy and loopy I can’t go to work, I can’t drive, I can hardly put a sentence together without drooling. 

So my mom brought me some lunch and a new prescription the doctor ordered that (fingers crossed) should make this thing go away. A TBM from Cosi is exactly what I needed today. Their bread is so delicious and they bake it fresh in the store right in front of you.

 Before I started cooking dinner I had a little snicky snack of sugar snap peas & baby carrots.

The point of this snack was to keep me from sticking my hand into the box of thin mints in our cabinet… it didn’t work. I ate two thin mints while I was waiting for Ryan to get out of the shower so we could eat. Dang it. 

Dinner was a delicious pasta dish that I ate on top of a pile of arugula, Ryan skipped the arugula- trust me, the peas were enough of a stretch for him.

After dinner I needed something sweet so in another attempt to avoid the cookies I had a bowl of pineapple & strawberries.

Did you read my Goals post from this afternoon? Well if you didn’t, go do that now! If you did, you know I am trying to get at least 2 cups of fruit and 3 cups of vegetables in per day. So how did I do?

I used the CDC’s guide to what counts as a cup to gauge how I did

Fruit:

1 apple + 1 banana

1 cup pineapple + strawberries

total: 3 cups

Vegetables:

1 cup mixed baby greens, sprinkling of cucumber & carrots

1/2 cup sugar snap peas + 1/4 cup baby carrots

3/4 cup arugula + 1/2 cup of peas

total: 3 cups

Goal met! Now the exercise is another story- the medicine is making me so loopy there’s not a chance in hell I could work out right now. Speaking of…. it’s time for another dose which means I’m going to sleep for the next 12 hours.

 Goodnight!

  1. I love eating fruit as a dessert, although Thin Mints aren’t so bad either.
    Hope you feel better soon and Happy WIAW!

      Fruit usually does it for me, but I’m not ashamed to admit I went back for a thin mint… or two 🙂
      WIAW is the best, thanks so much for hosting!

    Arugula for the win! My favorite green by far. So excited strawberries will be coming back in season. I’m a berry fanatic <3

      My favorite time of year is PYO Strawberry season. We aren’t there yet (I live in New England) but in a few months we will be 🙂
