What I Ate Wednesday OR WIAW #1

  Hey guys!  So, I thought I would try something new over here at L&L in the form of "What I Ate Wednesday's".  Jenn, over at Peas and Crayons, is the creator and host of this weekly Wednesday food party.  I've seen so many bloggers posting their eats so I thought, why not?  I can do it too!  I mean, you guys already know what I eat for the most part, but this would be an entire day of food.  Yikes! Also, this may or may not be my only WIAW post because I don't want to bore you guys with the sameness of my meals!  I basically eat the same thing all the time!  If I do decide to do more of these I will try and shake up my meals... or maybe not?  Ha.

Well, here goes:

As soon as I wake up I have a glass of room temperature water with a squirt of lemon.
    I can't eat or drink anything until I've had my water with lemon.  I've been doing this for a year and I can't imagine not doing it.  It's very alkalizing and gently wakes up my system while flushing the toxins away.  It also kick starts the metabolism. (bonus!)

Smoothie time!  My go-to breakfast.
   I pretty much always have a 'green' smoothie for breakfast.  This one actually looks kind of brown but that's just my awesome camera.  It was actually an orange/pink color.  I didn't have a lot of greens in the fridge so this is just one handful of spinach with some strawberries, mango and banana.  It was really yummy!  I had this again for a snack later in the day but I didn't remember to take a picture.  Ooops! 

Coffee!  Black please! :)
 No explanation needed.  I love coffee!  I have another cup later on depending on when my lunch break is (no pic - sorry!).  I used to drink way too much coffee (is there such a thing?) but I've really cut back since learning about the negative side of coffee.  Boo.  Unfortunately, coffee is not so great for my skin so I try and limit how much I have.  *sigh*

   I mean, if you had to guess I'm sure you would have guessed that I would have salad at some point in my day!  I almost always have salad for lunch unless I'm too lazy in the morning and then it's another smoothie.  This salad was basically just spinach, tomatoes, cucumbers, sprouts, with a balsamic dressing.  I also ALWAYS add nutritional yeast and hemp seeds to my salad. 

Umm... a snack before dinner?
   Okay, don't judge.  I totally had (what appears to be) a huge glass of wine but it's really mostly ice!  I had to take my cat to the vet's tonight after work.  She's what you'd call the "Fiji Vacation I never took".  But she's totally worth it!
  Look at that face!  She kinda looks a little chubby in this photo but that's not the case in real life.  Anyway, the vet gave me some pills for the little cutie so that's why I needed the wine... I have to mentally prepare myself to give her the meds tomorrow.  Yikes! 

Mmm... vegan Pad Thai!
   I wasn't too hungry after my little picnic on the balcony but I did have a few fork fulls of this leftover Pad Thai (while standing at the kitchen counter!).  Last night a friend and I went out for dinner at a local Thai/Vietnamese place called Lemon Grass.  We each had the Pad Thai except that mine was Vegan and hers was not.  It was so yummy and if you're in the area I would totally recommend this place.  My sis and I also ordered take-out from here before and were not disappointed.

   Well, there you have it!  A day in the life of my eats!  If I do this again next week I will try super hard to remember to photograph everything, because there was definitely some coffee and smoothie left out!

  I hope you enjoyed it!  Let me know what some of your 'staple' eats are and don't forget to head over to Peas and Crayons to see some other WIAW posts!
