Wednesday already? Not that I am complaining or anything, that’s for sure.
Let’s take a look at what I ate on Saturday, also known as long run day, also known as the day I rarely have lunch or dinner at home and last Saturday in particular, also known as the day I had lunch and girl time at the mall with Michele.
If you only knew what it took to find someone to take our picture. Maybe somewhere else in the country, like anywhere but New York, you would be able to easily ask someone to take your picture but here? It’s weird. Thank you to the kiosk person for taking our photo while looking at us as if we were totally nuts for asking.
Anyway, on to what I ate on Saturday.
Super early morning banana with peanut butter and the mandatory mug of coffee. I think I press the brew button on the Keurig without even having my eyes opened yet.
14 miles later, it was time to eat again.
I added pumpkin to the usual post-run bowl of oatmeal plus cinnamon, blueberries, Skoop and peanut butter.
Michele and I met up at the mall in the late morning after we both ran our 14 miles (funny we ran the same distance) for some shopping, serious chatting and of course, lunch.
Last time we went shopping at Roosevelt Field, we both ordered from The Little Beet.
This time however, while Michele was going to have a salmon salad, I really wanted my favorite Maoz Vegetarian salad. I have a hard time resisting their roasted broccoli (there was no cauliflower this time which was upsetting but I got over it).
Michele and I joked about those people who always think that restaurant salads are so huge when in our reality, we probably could have eaten double what we were served.
When I got home from the mall, I was hungry so I diced up a giant honey crisp apple with peanut butter.
My son was finally starting to feel better after being sick last week so we decided to go out for dinner before the Islanders and Mets games were on television.
I appreciate not cooking but after looking at the below picture of my food from dinner, I am noticing that I basically eat the same foods at home or at a restaurant. Hmm.
Small greek salad, roasted sweet potatoes and roasted Brussels sprouts <- sucker for side dishes.
We talked about picking up sundae ingredients to make ice cream sundaes while watching the games but somehow ended up home just eating chocolate chips which is always fine with me. Simple desserts, focused on chocolate, are sometimes the best.
So I am suddenly not a fan of Nestle’s Dark Chocolate Chips. They don’t taste right to me anymore, they almost taste like milk chocolate?
Maybe my chocolate taste buds are changing?
I much prefer Trader Joe’s semi-sweet chocolate chips instead.

Which type of chocolate chips do you prefer?
Do you typically order the same foods that you cook at home when you are out to eat?
What mall do you live near? Do you go often?
