What I Ate Wednesday

by Kristina Sloggett

in Breakfast, daily smoothie, Dinner, Second Breakfast

Yesterday wasn’t the best day, and I spent it unfocused and BLAH… I’m only realizing now that it resulted in random eats.

I began with a daily smoothie – chocolate protein, hazelnut milk, peanut butter flour (yep, I’m hoarding it), banana, maca and ice cubes. YUM. Stuck with me all morning, and I had an invigorating run! Knowing my reasoning, I will drink smoothies exactly like this one every day forever! :D

Lunch was a protein rich salad with quinoa.

I’m making a new raw bar, and I snacked on plenty during creation:

I also ate another banana in the afternoon. It was huge, and I took a reference photo:

Did you detect the skeptical look?

Along with the giganti – nana, I topped a muffin with almond butter (more recipe development), and an Adora calcium disk.

Jason called when I was trying to figure out what to make for dinner… he knew I was down, and offered to bring home whatever I wanted. The crust was gluten free.

What are you eating today? Have a great one!

Oh, and why were you down? A mighty dose of pizza is this Italian witch doctor’s cure for EVERYTHING! Even leprosy. Not that I think you are a leper. Sheesh!

oh, just life and stuff, you know! no leprosy, and now I can smile at the newfound perspective! AND leftover pizza! <3

I’m going to bust your lunch: it was LETTUCE. And QUINOA. NAKED.

Right about now, I want to come over and make you tomorrow’s lunch, lest that crime of component-eating happen again… :) I actually ate like that a lot when I was finishing school—I had the components of things that I meant to cook into wonderful meals, but without the time, I’d just eat the ingredients. It was a step up from when I made meals out of wasa crackers and condiments, mind you… :)

see !?!? I said it was random. I think I ate this without really thinking about it, you know? I was going to add ketchup because I love it, since my standard egg topping sounded like too much work yesterday. OOOH ! a few years ago I totally went through a wasa + tofu pate phase – pretty much all I ate, with a few veggies mixed in. :D

I say your eats look yummy! I have days like that where my eats are totally random ;) But I kinda enjoy those days sometimes haha I have not had breakfast yet still enjoying my warm lemon water so at the moment that is what I am enjoying ;)

mmm, I need to start my morning lemon water again! I recently switched to a huge jar of ice cold water in the mornings, the ONE tip I heard and used from The Four Hour Body! :D

I love the quinoa salad. I picked up some red quinoa the other day and am looking forward to trying it. Is the taste different from regular quinoa? I am considering mixing the two.

Reply

16 spabettie April 13, 2011 at 12:10 pm

I don’t really taste a difference in the red or black from the regular… it’s just pretty :)

Reply

17 S @ extremebalance.net/blog April 13, 2011 at 10:40 pm

I think the red doesn’t *taste* different, but it’s got a slightly tougher texture. “Nutty”, some would say… :)

YES!! you’re right, a bit more BITE, right?

I hope today is a better one for you. Love that banana/Basil picture. He must be ALL personality! And I still can’t find the red quinoa here. Craziness!

I love the skeptical look.

I didn’t know before but now I know I must have a pizza for dinner. With your muffin. Do you think you can courier it to me asap? :)

Haha, our dog does that same look. I think he is saying, “What you are doing is clearly ridiculous. I am judging you.”

Reply

38 spabettie April 13, 2011 at 1:22 pm

haaa haaa – EXACTLY ! he gets that look and I bust out Vince Vaughn’s Old School line — ‘See that? Always smiling? Hi, honey. Judging, watching, “Look at the baby.” ‘ :D

Your raw bar creation looks great! I think making bars at home is the greatest thing that I’ve done in my kitchen the past few months. I love to experiment with different ingredients!

Reference shot…love it! Basil fits so perfectly in the arch of that nanner!

Oh, I hate blah days…at least you had actual defined meals. I usually end up grazing on bits of this and that all day long…then at the end of the day, I feel worse! Bleh!
