My site statistics are showing that someone googled, “I was so busy today that I forgot to eat,” somehow landing here at my blog for guidance.
I like to think that I am an understanding person and friend but not when it comes to food. I DO NOT UNDERSTAND.
How are you so busy that you forgot to eat? How does that happen? Explain please.
I don’t think I have ever been too busy to remember to eat. My stomach reminds me.
It’s What I Ate Wednesday so let’s take a look at what I ate yesterday…
I made my first cup of coffee while preparing oatmeal for the rest of the week. I had a small amount of oatmeal with half of a banana before going outside to run a bunch of miles.
I felt like switching up my usual post-run oatmeal with autumn oatmeal even though it’s not autumn. I called this recipe autumn oatmeal last year because I made it with sautéed apples. It’s really quick and easy to throw together so don’t let the sautéed apples part scare you away.
The morning flew by in a flash but at some point while working I decided to prepare a batch of lentils and quinoa to have on hand for meals this week.
I added the lentils and quinoa to a big salad for lunch which also included roasted sweet potato wedges, roasted brussels sprouts, plum tomatoes and feta cheese. Slightly different salad from the Power Salad recipe I shared on Friday – I am good at making various yummy salads!
Okay so the salad for lunch was so good that I made it again for dinner and didn’t take a picture. This is what happens more often than not – I repeat my meals not only every day but multiple times a day.
Especially with my son away, I do a limited grocery shop each week since he isn’t home and I don’t always eat at home which means the variety of foods in the house is kept to a minimum.
So long as there are the long-shelf life foods in the pantry (like beans and lentils) and I have my food staples such as sweet potatoes, apples, peanut butter, oatmeal and a couple of vegetable choices, I am set.
I am still on the warmed apple slices kick topped with peanut butter, a drizzle of Trader Joe’s Midnight Moo and Trader Joe’s Muesli.
I ran a bunch of errands last night and one of those errands involved picking up a watermelon. I love cutting up watermelon mainly because I can eat it while I slice it!
I love that it’s Wednesday already by the way. I am not trying to rush away the rest of summer but I am all about rushing the week so it can be the weekend. 🙂
