Foodie For a Day // What I Ate Part 3

I tried to turn today around and while it’s not ending horribly, I think it might just be one of those days.  And therefore, one of those nights I turn off my phone and read until I pass out.


I almost forgot about my afternoon snack: a blood orange + mini cadburry eggs.  YUM!

**And back to your regularly scheduled program**

Before making dinner, I decided to do some yoga, which I think helped some of the grumpiness but like I said, I think it’s just one of those days.

Thankfully, I kept dinner quick and simple: veggie fried rice and a glass of wine.

Fried rice is perfect for those nights when you want something quick and to use up the last of the veggies and egg whites you have in the apartment.  Or at least, that’s when it’s best for me!

And wine?  Well, that’s perfect anytime!

Now, I’m off to read Eat, Pray, Love until I fall asleep…

Foodie for a Day // What I Ate Part 2

The morning took a not so fun turn, but I pushed past it.

After pressing “publish” on this morning’s post, I went back downstairs to pour myself another cup of coffee only to find the pot empty, the machine off, and remnants of coffee  in my roommate’s dishes in the sink.  Let’s just say things got real and I don’t recommend ever throwing away your roommates coffee.  And if you ever throw away, break, lose (etc) anything that belongs to someone else, show some remorse or you’re just not putting yourself in a good place.

But then I ran off to the gym.  I now had yesterday’s stress + this morning’s annoyance that had to be reset.  I had a pretty good workout, stopped at the grocery store and by the time I got home I was more than ready to dig into lunch!

I made myself a shamrock shake spinach, banana, protein smoothie with a side of hummus and veggies.  And snacked on some popcorn I had sent my way (more on that another week…)

Now I’m drinking some iced coffee and pulling together the energy to clean my apartment.  (Gross!)
