Guess what? It’s Wednesday and I’m going to keep it short and to the point for this week’s WIAW. No rolling of any eyes. I know I can ramble, but let’s give it a shot 🙂
Lately I’ve been in the habit of spending a chunk of time on Sundays preparing my breakfasts and lunches for the upcoming week. This week I stuck to my plan of overnight oats – oats, Chobani nonfat yogurt, ground flaxseed, chia seeds, cinnamon/nutmeg, frozen berries, tad bit of almond/coconut milk, and topped with sliced almonds.
I also am a coffee addict so a cup of cold brew was necessary. Turns out we get a discount to Bouchon Bakery – something I found out after this purchase, but enough to get me to go back later this week.
Lunch is usually around 12:30/12:45 and consists of some vegetable medley (either from the cafeteria or from home) and chicken/tofu, whichever looks more appealing that day. Today’s mix included lettuce, beans of some sort, Brussels sprouts, quinoa, and chicken.
Oh dear, oh dear, oh dear. Now comes dinner, one of my latest “not-so-smart” decisions. Originally I planned to test out a recipe for zucchini lasagna. But I had agreed to run with friends around 7:50/8pm (not ideal, but one was coming back into the city). By the time I got home from work/wandering Union Square, I was ravenous and inhaled every little snack I could think of. Running later meant no full meal but a snack wouldn’t hurt, right? But I was hungry. So the following happened (rightfully unpictured): small frozen banana, 2 tbsp peanut butter, pretzels, heft handful of dark chocolate chips (dark is good right? 😉 ), small slice of pizza with some butter and chocolate chips.
Yes, I was a child that grew up on butter – sometimes a dessert of tortilla and melted butter did the trick and in high school cooking class, I got super gourmet and added some melted chocolate chips to the mix. Post run, I indulged in a bit of my roommate’s leftover cheeseburger. We like to share 🙂
Now I’m not going to pretend I made the best decisions. In fact, my stomach was more than unhappy with me and let’s just say I will not be doing late night runs post-meals any time soon. It was just funny (after the fact) especially because my dinner counterbalanced the vast amount of vegetables I consumed at lunch.
Ok, not too bad. Have a great Wednesday and rest of your week!
