Another week, another What I Ate Wednesday. I’ve been spending a lot of time on writing projects and creating materials for upcoming events this week, so I’ve been working at my desk at home a lot. After working Friday through Sunday at the hospital, I was more than ready for a slower-paced work-from-home Monday. Waking up with a head cold Sunday morning kind of forced me to bring things down a notch. My body was basically like, “Jess, seriously, this is bullish!t,” so I cleared a few things from my calendar and stuck close to
the writing cave home for most of Monday. Here’s what I ate in between blowing my nose and typing:
Breakfast was very similar to the one I posted last Wednesday, minus the figs. My bowl had oats, ground flax, half a mutsu apple, pumpkin pie spice, vanilla extract, and 1/3 cup egg whites. I added some peanut butter on top right before eating.
Lunch was also similar to the one in my last WIAW post in that it also involved salmon. I swear I eat things besides salmon. This was leftover from a filet I’d made the night before, and I enjoyed it with arugula salad that also had roasted veggies (zucchini, cauliflower, eggplant, and pepper), avocado, and balsamic. For dessert, I had the other half of the apple from breakfast.
Dinner was kind of a “what’s in the fridge that needs to get used up” meal. I steamed a sweet potato in the microwave and added some kale, roasted brussels & beets, and then topped it with a maple sausage from the farmers market and a fried egg. Oh—and a little goat cheese, yes. That was a good idea.
