Happy What I Ate Wednesday! How’s your week going so far? Congrats to any of my readers who completed the NYC Marathon this past weekend. I worked Wednesday through Sunday at the hospital, so it was business as usual (or as close to “usual” as I get) for me. Here’s what I ate on Saturday, which was rainy and a busy, but I enjoyed great meals and snacks to keep my energy up throughout the day.
- Breakfast was some of this pumpkin “cheesecake” parfait with some cereal for crunch and homemade cranberry sauce.
- For lunch, I had steamed baby kale with roasted veggies, chicken sausage, and a bit of herbed feta. For lunch “dessert” I had a gorgeous apple from my recent Farmigo order.
- Before leaving for the day I had some 0% Plain Greek yogurt with a Fiberlove bar crumbled on top.
I ran home for about ten minutes to drop my stuff off and headed to my friend’s post-Halloween get-together. I was still really full from my afternoon snack, so I just had a cup of red wine and nibbled a few carrots. Not great timing on my part, but oh well. I guess that’s what happens when you’re up at 5 a.m. on a Saturday.
By the time I got home I was hungry for real and in need of something comforting. I made savory oatmeal with pumpkin, flax, and egg white cooked in and topped it with roasted cauliflower, caramelized onion, tahini, and another spoonful of that herbed feta.
I also had a piece of this great chocolate.
Before bed I had a sliced banana with a little (~1/2 tbsp) of peanut butter. I tell myself the magnesium, potassium, tryptophan, and vitamin B 6 help me sleep.
