What I Ate Wednesday 3.16.16


I woke up in a bit of a mood both Monday and Tuesday morning. Not tired per say, just moody. Now, of course there’s always that chance that my moodiness may just be a product of my ever-charming, often hormonally driven + Gemini + Jewish mother + New Yorker personality but that wasn’t quite it.

It took me until Tuesday morning, as I grumbled my way in the dark over to the treadmill, to realize that I was in fact in a mood because of daylight savings time!

I was really enjoying the early morning light lately for my runs and now it’s gone. Waking up in the dark and having to run indoors on the treadmill again because it’s dark outside even though it’s after 6:00 am is not nice. I am ready for Spring, okay?

I realize that with each passing day comes an earlier sunrise so I am just focusing on trying to remain early morning pleasant as best as I can but I am not doing a very good job of it so my advice is to avoid me until at least 9:00 am.

Or maybe 10:00 am. Or just send me a text that way I don’t have to answer until I feel like it.


Let’s take a look at what I ate on Monday which might as well be What I ate on Tuesday too since I basically ate the same foods both days.


I refuse to part with my son’s baby bowls and dishes. In fact, I like to use them still for snacks. And on Monday, I used his Gerber Baby Bunch a Bowls as a bowl for my pre-run oatmeal.


Clearly my photos are not staged for these posts. Ha

After my run, I made a protein pancake (similar to this recipe only I added Skoop) which flipped really well, didn’t it? Even with the blueberries in the center!

Since I had frozen yogurt for lunch both Saturday and Sunday, I went back to basics to start the week. Eggs on toasted cinnamon raisin Ezekiel bread with avocado and a side of roasted asparagus which I bought on sale this week.

I haven’t had a Synergy Kombucha in a while so I treated myself to a bottle while I was out after lunch.

I love a good plant based power bowl. Quinoa, roasted broccoli, brussels sprouts and sweet potato wedges. I added avocado and a maple Dijon vinaigrette? Sauce? I don’t know what to call it but whatever it is, I made it myself and it’s real tasty.

Back to my old favorite – a granny smith apple with peanut butter.

    I had vegetarian lentil curry with some greens for dinner yesterday. It was strange because I typically eat curry with rice, but healthy living bloggers gonne be healthy 😉 I ate that curry with rice for lunch today, though!

    I made butter chicken and homemade naan bread for dinner last night! I was so impressed with myself! Not sure how far I’ll run today. Probably just an easy 8 miler. I’m supposed to be tapering for a race this weekend.

    Usually, the time change only affects me on that first day, but this time around it’s been kicking my butt. I really didn’t want to reach for extra coffee, but it’s been so necessary! There is no better combo than an apple + nut butter. I have FlyWheel on the workout agenda for today. Can’t wait!

    I feel like I keep telling everyone how awful the time change has been for me. Luckily the Internet exists so I can complain to an even bigger audience haha! I had a turkey sandwich and some raw veggies for dinner last night but the star was a super fudgey brownie! I had 5 miles on the agenda today but it was 80 degrees out so it felt a little on the challenging side!
