Happy Wednesday. It’s officially the first What I Ate Wednesday of Spring. I’m into it.

Let’s jump right into this food diary thing, shall we? Here’s what I ate this past Saturday, when I worked a shift at the hospital and then went to a Moroccan-themed potluck dinner with some of my RD friends.

Desk Breakfast: Zucchini bread oatmeal with peanut butter. Ugly but good.

Desk Lunch: A big salad with leftover veggies and chicken; an apple midway through the afternoon

Snack: Plain Greek yogurt with a tablespoon of cocoa powder and a teaspoon of dark chocolate chips (not pictured)

Dinner: A variety of delicious foods. Our theme for this potluck was Moroccan food, and most of the dishes were adapted from recipes a friend made in a Moroccan cooking class. Carrot and beet salads, homemade bread (my friend Natalie’s husband has mad baking skills), a soup with lentils, orzo, and a bunch of veggies, couscous, and a fish tagine-inspired recipe with olives, tomatoes, peppers, and carrots. Moroccan Potluck

To drink, I brought a bottle of Shinn Estate Vineyards rose. I’ve been wanting to try more local winemakers’ wines. It was my first time trying one of their wines, and I will definitely buy this again. During dinner, we talked about planning a visit to the vineyard this spring or summer. I haven’t gone wine tasting in so long—definitely time to do something about that.

Bedtime Snack : I was shocked that I was hungry by the time I got home, but nothing a quick snack couldn’t fix. I sliced up a banana and added a spoonful of my favorite non-fat ricotta. I’m usually not into fat-free dairy, but this stuff is delicious and versatile enough to use in a range of sweet and savory dishes.

Then it was lights-out. Cheers to a lovely, if long day.
