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!
