Just call me the carb queen.
It’s not that I don’t normally eat so many carbohydrates since my diet is pretty much carb-focused, it’s just that right now, I AM ALL CARB-FOCUSED.
I am feeling so much better since being sick but what I eat is still on the mend. Vegetables are basically off limits at the moment as is most fruit too.
I am a runner’s dream right now.
We are talking oatmeal, bananas, bagels, large baked potatoes and…um, yeah. That’s about it.
Needless to say, this What I Ate Wednesday post is a bit boring and bland but that’s how I like things right now. In fact, I happen to love what I have been eating!
The diet of mine has made for some amazing running these last few days, that I can tell you. My legs have never felt so fresh and free!
I can’t really say that breakfast is out of the ordinary. My pre-run small breakfast is still mashed banana with a little bit of oatmeal.
After my eight mile run yesterday morning, I had another bowl of oatmeal with banana which looked similar to this one only I also added Skoop to pretend I care about protein plus like four frozen blueberries. Those were the first bites of fruit that I have had other than a banana since last week!
When I tell you that I am obsessed with Stew Leonard’s french toast bagels, I mean it.
My favorite way to eat a french toast bagel is to buy it super fresh and then toast it real good. It makes the outside crispier yet the center is still a little doughy and the powdered sugar is still fresh on top. Real bagel connoisseurs will tell you that toasting a fresh bagel is a sin, just like asking for ketchup in a steakhouse but I don’t care.
A bit of raspberry jelly plus eggs to complete my french toast bagel sandwich. If I spoke in hashtags, this is where I would say #inlove.
Dinner has been focused around large baked potatoes lately. I switched the last two nights from baking a big potato to dicing it up into wedges and baking them in the oven for a super long time to create these crispy oven baked fries.
I would say to achieve such crispiness you gotta have enough patience to leave the fries in the oven for about an hour at 450 degrees.
With a bowl of this Organic Tomato & Roasted Red Pepper soup from Trader Joe’s on the side so you can dip the baked fries in the soup < – I am obsessed.
This is where I am struggling. I just can’t eat peanut butter yet. I even tried last night and within one bite, I gagged so that was that. I put the jar away.
I bought a few honey crisp apples and tried to eat one plain but bleh, I really didn’t enjoy it.
We have Multigrain Cheerios in the house so sometimes I pick at those but I didn’t want those either last night. I just sort of paced around the kitchen looking for a snack but nothing at all appealed to me. It was sad.Just call me the carb queen! #wiaw #bagels @stewleonards #carbs #runner Click To Tweet
