It's the middle of the week and you know what that means. You guessed it - another installment of What I Ate Wednesday! I've grown to love these WIAW posts because I get to post pictures of food but also, because I get to ogle food pics from other blogs. Let's face it, who doesn't like to look at yummy food?
So let's get on with it, shall we?
First thing - As always, I start my morning off with some room temp water, a squirt of lemon, and a pinch of cayenne pepper.
Next - a cup of coffee. I love my coffee. It holds a special place in my heart and I hope that I never have to stop drinking it.
Breakfast - It's been a little bit chilly in the mornings so I felt like something a bit more warming then my usual breakfast. I whipped up some oat bran with cinnamon, raw cacao powder and bananas.
Late morning snackage - carrot sticks and dijon mustard. This never gets old - I love dipping my veggies in mustard. And because I do it so often, I've even inspired some of the kids at work to start doing it, too! Hey, it's better than ranch dip so who am I to deny them?
Lunch - Always a salad and no, in case you are wondering, I never get sick of them! This one has spinach, tomatoes, cucumbers, avocado, and a sprinkling of nori. The dressing is simple: Lemon, nutritional yeast and a pinch of cayenne pepper.
Dinner - Garden Burger with tomato and avocado on a bed of kale salad.
Early evening snackage - this is probably my second or third peach of the season. I haven't come across too many organic peaches so when I saw these at my health store I snatched up a couple. This peach was super soft (in a good way) and super sweet. Definitely worth the wait!
Sweet tooth snackage - I made these peanut butter cookies over the weekend because I was having some visitors. I put the rest in the freezer for the occasional sweet tooth and pulled a couple out to have with my tea. It totally hit the spot.
And since this month we are talking about our goals and falling into good habits, I figure that I should share that I am vowing to be more punctual. This mostly pertains to work (and I really hope that my 'higher ups' do not read my blog... fingers crossed) because even though I rush in the morning to make sure that I get myself ready and get everything done in time - I never seem to get out of the house any earlier! In fact, I find that whenever I have time to spare, I usually give myself another task because I feel like it's "free time". And thus, I end up being late or arriving with seconds to spare. Ugh! Well, from now on, not only will I be on time, but I will arrive to work EARLY (I hope). I can do this! Wish me luck! Actually, I might not need it as this is my 13th WIAW post and like I said in the title, thirteen is my lucky number. I think that's all the luck I'll need. But you can still cheer me on if you'd like! ;)
Have a great Wednesday and remember, it's only two more days until the weekend (yes, I'm counting down)!
