WIAWbutton - What I Ate Wednesday #9: TV DinnerI love days when I get to spend a lot of one-on-one time with patients. I don’t think I could ever get tired of hearing people’s stories and helping them make meaningful connections. Finding out what matters to someone else can really put your own experiences into perspective as well.

Anyway, I was thankful for a really good day, even if it was long. I think it helped that I had on a new sundress I picked up at Old Navy earlier this week for all of $12.

I suck at taking pictures of myself, but I love this dress

When I got home from class, Chris offered to make veggie burgers with freshly-made guacamole for dinner. Delicious. We ate them with a side of leftover roasted cauliflower (my recent obsession) in front of our makeshift TV…img 2140 - What I Ate Wednesday #9: TV Dinner

I  haven’t had a TV in almost 4 years, and even when I did technically have one, I could count on one hand, probably, the number of times I actually turned it on. Even then, it was only to watch The Royal Tenenbaums at 3 a.m. when I couldn’t sleep. Don’t judge.

Though I always encourage people not to multi-task while eating, sometimes, when your boy wants to make dinner and watch an episode of Breaking Bad together, which you know he really loves, it’s totally okay. I’m sure my dad will read this and beg me for the millionth time to just get a real TV goddamnit, but if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it, you know?

My “eats” (as they say) for Wednesday were pretty basic go-go-go fare. Something funny I just noticed, though, I find I’ll go for stretches of days where I really don’t crave dairy at all (except yogurt, which is basically the #1 reason I’ll never be vegan), and then for a few days, I’ll want it at almost every meal or snack. Today was one of those days. Maybe it’s some kind of subconscious PMS Avenger diet my body goes on every month for a few days. Or not.

Breakfast: overnight oats (made with oats, chia seeds, cinnamon, banana & blueberries, topped in the a.m. with more berries and a little cottage cheese)img 2103 - What I Ate Wednesday #9: TV Dinner
