It’s already Wednesday?! Yikes!
This week’s What I Ate Wednesday, brought to you by the lovely Jenn over at Peas and Crayons, is filled with eats from Monday.
I was impatient on Monday. I wanted quick. I wanted delicious. I wanted my food now. They say patience is a virtue? Pffffft.
On a Monday mornings I want to spend as little time as possible in the kitchen, because, well … it’s Monday. I usually don’t get my butt in gear quick enough, so I don’t have a lot of time on Monday mornings anyway. This week I whipped up a bowl of oatmeal with chia seeds, chocolate protein powder and an apple. Then I read blogs while inhaling it. I don’t remember, but I can pretty much guarantee I spilled on my keyboard. That happens regularly.
I would be super ashamed to find out how many of these crackers I ate at my desk while working. See guys, THIS is why you portion stuff out. Don’t just dig in the box while you type. Or you’ll feel like you’re going to turn into a cracker like I did on Monday. I took this box to work (leftover from my sangria/snackfest on Saturday) to share with my coworkers. We all share our food, all the time. Except I didn’t share these. Whoopsie.
The ultimate convenience and solution for impatience is take out soup. It’s actually a fun story … my friend/coworker and I went to a local cafe for supper on Friday and had this coconut chicken curry soup. It was the soup of the day, and it may have been the best thing I’ve ever eaten. We started talking about it (reliving the magic) around lunchtime on Monday, and wondered what the odds were that they were serving it again. One phone call later, I was one happy camper. It was deliciously spicy, and this was about when my sore throat started to show up. Soup is great when you’re sick. Spicy is also great when you’re sick. This was obviously a fantastic decision. I paired it with a vanilla rooibos tea latte from Starbucks.
I felt like crap for supper. I knew I needed to jam as many nutrients into me as possible if I was going to beat the bug that was threatening my immune system (it’s still there today, but I’m a lot better). This meant filling half of a plate with assorted veggies (microwave = my friend), and eating a protein packed wrap. That whole wheat tortilla housed two eggs, chia seeds, two Jamie Eason turkey muffins, yellow peppers, spinach, and a light little smear of leftover Boursin cheese (again, from the sangria/snacking session on Saturday).
Dessert/snack I inhaled before falling asleep on the couch:
So much happiness in one bowl. I wanted more fruit (hello, vitamin C). With chocolate. And peanut butter. And yogurt. I listened to my cravings and piled not one, but two apples in a bowl. On top of that went some carob chips, blueberry Greek yogurt, crunchy peanut butter, and golden raisins. I ate it, and my sick body decided to fall asleep at 7:45. I even missed Gossip Girl. That tells you how gross I was actually feeling.
Enjoy your day! I’m going to check out some other beautiful WIAW’s … but never when I’m hungry. That just makes it worse
