What I ate Wednesday, #11
Ooooh Happy WIAW! I guess this week is going by faster than expected, which is always a good thing! Enjoy some of my eats, although I’ll admit they aren’t all from one consecutive day..ooops. Well, only the lunch was different. :)
Prebreakfast- Crock pot season has arrived!! Fall. More fall posts to come, but how about a healthy stew with beans, tomatoes, onions, peppers, and greens to start off the day! No, I didn’t eat this for breakfast, sheesh.
Breakfast- Panda Puffs, apples, pb, and yogurt. Yummmy! After having some of Ryan’s fresh squeezed OJ.
Lunch- Leftover Pumpkin Mac and Cheese, recipe from ohsheglows! Its delicious, I added cheese to the top, shhh don’t tell.
Dinner- Beans! Done! Had a bowl with a brown rice tortilla, hummus and half an avocado. The avocados from our CSA box this year have been the best I have ever had!
Happy Hump Day!
What I ate Wednesday, #10
It’s time for WIAW! This morning when I woke up I was convinced it was Saturday, that was unfortunate, but at least it’s hump day! It was in the 90s today, I love October in San Diego!
Breakfast- Tea, yogurt, and an orange. Siggi’s was on sale at whole foods this week :)
Lunch- Salad with avocado, apples, and walnuts, topped with my favorite poppyseed salad dressing (not pictured)
Lunch was served with a side of string cheese and a gorgonzola mushroom cornbread that I got at the farmer’s market on Sunday. Delicious!
Afternoon snack- Carrots! I love munching in the office, although I’m sure the coworkers don’t really like it.
Dinner- Veggie burger (sunshine burger, gluten and soy free) not my favorite but I fancied it up a bit and served it with some homemade sweet potato fries. The sweet potato fries were inspired by Mama Pea’s recipe here.
Dessert- I even made a apple cobbler. Apples really are my favorite fruit, and it is most definitely apple season! The topping was simply coconut flour and oats mixed with some butter and sugar. It’s healthy right? Hmm…I’ll have to think about that one :) And I apologize for the lack of recipes, I’ve been creating in the kitchen just not documenting properly.
I am really excited for apple season, I think apple sauce, apple butter, and other apple goodies are in my near future!
What is your favorite fall food?
What I ate Wednesday, #9
Happy Hump Day everyone! It’s storming outside today, but I don’t mind it much, it fits the mood with me being sick and injured. Hasn’t been the best of weeks, I found myself with a re-pinched nerve in the back and some gross and evil cold. After sleeping all day I have the strength to bring you this post about my favorite thing ever, fooooood!
Breakfast- Strawberries (yes, I am still holding on to summer) with panda puff cereal and plain yogurt, topped with some chunky pb :)
Lunch- An overly grilled, grilled cheese with langostinos and munster cheese on gluten free bread, with a side of tomato red pepper soup for the painful throat. This bread I got at a newish gluten free Encinitas bakery called 2Good2B, and it really is delicious! I also had a carrot cake cupcake there and you couldn’t even tell it was gluten free. Definitely recommend! If only it wasn’t as expensive, the loaf cost me $8 I think.
Dinner- More bean tacos! I have been eating bean tacos way way too much lately. These were with some roasted chickpeas instead of refried beans( just changing it up a little). I also had a side of sweet potato, yummm.
Stay dry San Diegans! And don’t get sick! It is no fun!
What I Ate in NY the Bagel Edition
Bergen Bagels (Brooklyn)- Had half of a sesame bagel with garlic cream cheese and an everything bagel with basil cream cheese. These were amazing! Started the trip out right with a good bagel :) They also allow the toasting of bagels which wasn’t seen much at our other bagel stops.
Russ and Daughters- I had a Lox and cream cheese on an everything bagel complete with onion, tomatoes, and capers. The lox was amazing, and probably the best I’ve ever had! The bagel however was not nearly up to NY bagel standards in my opinion, I felt that they might have been sitting around for awhile. Despite the bagel, this place is really cute and I definitely enjoyed the vibe, the smoked fishes here are the stars of the show.
Murray’s Bagels (Chelsea)- We got an everything bagel with olive cream cheese and a health bagel with strawberry cream cheese. I love strawberry cream cheese and they did not disappoint! The bagels were chewy but way softer than Russ and Daughters and the cream cheese was delicious. I would pick this as number two from the bagel places I visited.
Absolute Bagel (Way Upper West Side)- Of course the one place I didn’t get a picture of was my favorite! We had an everything bagel with jalapeno cream cheese and another with chive and garlic cream cheese. The chive and garlic cream cheese stole the show! Delicious and so flavorful paired with a hearty bagel chewy and just the right density! Number one in my book from the trip.
Broadway Bagel (Way Upper West Side)- I had an everything bagel with lox and scallion cream cheese topped with tomatoes and onion. While this bagel sammy was good it was nothing really to write home about, but I had to get my one last bagel fix before heading to the airport.
I love bagels! And now I have one growing around my stomach..eww..Luckily I went on a 2 mile walk/run today. Trying to get back into the swing of things. Although, on the bright side the scale doesn’t seem to think I’ve gained any weight, I just feel icky. Maybe refried bean tacos aren’t the best back on track food.
Stay tuned for NY pizza eats and other random eats, and then finally pictures of the non food events.
What I ate Wednesday, #7
Here is my What I ate Wednesday Birthday food edition! Oh so awesome!
Breakfast- Gluten Free Pancakes with tons of butter and maple syrup! Ummm did I mention maple syrup?
And then a minor interruption to eating…Sailing! With some really awesome people :)
Lunch- Broken Yolk, could this omelet get any bigger? It had avocado and sprouts and bell peppers-delicious.
And don’t forget the mimosas!
Dinner- we made sushi! Yep made it! which is why this roll looked amazing…
and this one, not so much :)
Dessert which was not pictured was sake, sake, more sake, and some sesame balls!
Happy Hump Day!
Today I completed W2D1 of the couch to 10k. So far so good :) My hip still bothers me sometimes but its not that bad it is just sore and weak. Friday I kind of cheated on the program. I went to the gym at work, but both of the treadmills were taken so I went to the soccer fields instead. And then halfway the sprinklers turned on..
Luckily today no one was on the treadmill and I got the full workout in. I know that I shouldn’t be cheating the program and I probably should have repeated W1D3 but I felt like I could handle moving on. You definitely have to know your body an listen to it when pushing yourself, especially if you are injury prone (ahem…me). Although today’s workout was still mainly walking it is definitely working on my stamina.
After my work out (and a shower! and oh boy did I need one) I made a delightful stir fry with coconut curry sauce, and a side of edamame. I am testing soy now! I’ve been 3 weeks soy-free and nearly a month gluten-free. My stomach hasn’t been having too many issues while following the diet, so starting today I’m testing soy to see if I have any reactions.
Hope your Monday wasn’t too bad! I know I am already anxiously awaiting the long weekend!
What I ate Wednesday, #5
It’s that time again! What I ate Wednesday :) Lots of good eats over here even with the gluten free/soy free restrictions. I can always manage to find some food!
Breakfast- Yogurt and fruit! I actually forgot to take a picture so think this picture with apples and puffed millet instead.
For lunch I had some salad with carrots, plums, tomatoes, mozzarella balls, and an orange squeezed on top and on the side. Also on the side were some enjoy life cookies in lemon flavor. Lunch wasn’t really my fave this time, just using up random food we have left in the fridge.
Non pictured snack- Celery and PB and hummus! Yumm! Does anyone else have an issue with the strings? I bit into one this weekend and it literally flossed 3 of my teeth. Awkward to say the least, being in a room of girls for a bachelorette party. Usually to avoid this I will use a peeler to peel off those pesky strings before eating.
And Dinner- How bout them beets? Do you like them? I definitely don’t! But I gotta keep eating them, since they are healthy and in my CSA box every week! I topped the beets with goat cheese and served with a side salad with more mozzarella, tossed in basalmic and vinegar.
Happy Hump day! I’m hoping I can get my act together and work on posting more consistently and frequently! It’s been so busy around these parts lately!
What I ate Wednesday, #4
My stomach tends to disagree with me quite often. I often get stomach cramps and there is always a bit of a constant pressure/bubble feeling on my left side. So far I have not been successful determining which foods cause it, but I am definitely on a mission to get my health together! I am re-trying gluten free because it definitely seems to help this bloaty/crampy feeling I get when I eat too much bread and processed foods. I have been gluten free since August 1st and that little bubble feeling has seemed to have disappeared (for now at least). Starting monday I went soy-free too (I am working with a RD on this) which is definitely a new challenge! Tofu? Tempeh? Nada. I have some other beans as backup, sorry soy beans great northern and black beans are here to stay. Here is my soy-free, gluten-free WIAW!
Breakfast- Plain yogurt with some homemade granola, sliced nectarine, and sliced plum! I am loving my CSA box fruit! Umm and yes..I eat yogurt every morning and I don’t really like it, weird right? I just like the way it makes me feel, full but not heavy.
Lunch- More Summer Caprese Salad with spring mix (old picture, but literally imagine this on top of spring mix)
Dinner- Finished off the day with my new favorite find..Get ready for this (insert drumroll here) Wasabi & Horseradish Cheese! Used in wild quesadillas :) filled with squash, eggplant, peppers, onion, and garlic on a gluten free Food For Life brown rice tortilla.
Have a happy hump day! I still giggle at hump day..can’t help it :)
Recap of the holiday weekend in pictures!
Had an amazing weekend full of grilling, friends, food, and fun! Today was a bit brutal, but hey only 3 more work days left this week yipeeee :) The chocolate torte by the way was from ohsheglows I am really loving her vegan food lately! This torte was gluten free and vegan and super chocolatey, whats not to love?
