Yesterday was full of mediocre eats… until dinner! Dinner was fab. But you have to wait a bit to hear what that was.
I’m linking up once again for What I Ate Wednesday, hosted by Jenn! Thanks to her as always, and all of the other bloggers who weirdly take pictures of every meal so faithfully. Here are my Tuesday eats:
I slept in yesterday and didn’t go to the gym to bike in the morning. Hashtag oops, hashtag not sorry. Sleeping felt better, especially because I had a super weird dream in between my alarm and when I naturally woke up. I love that time of sleep for dreams – they’re always the most wacko.
Anyway, I had a super gross pumpkin pie smoothie for breakfast. First of all, I used both spinach and kale I bought from the farmer’s market, and the smoothie tasted earthy. I poured, and I mean poured, cinnamon in to hide the taste, but it didn’t work. Bad breakfasts are always such a letdown.
To carry on the mediocrity of my day, I had almost average homemade hummus with veggies and two hard-boiled eggs on the side.
It was my first time making hummus, and the flavor wasn’t terrible, but the the texture – ugh, the texture. It was so dry! I knew it wasn’t right as I was making it, but I was sick of adding things so I just gave up. After a bit of research, I learned that you apparently have to take all the little skins off of the chickpeas. Talk about time intensive?!
I made sure to bring a snack with me for my afternoon class, so I had a yummy Gala apple from the farmer’s market. I also brought cottage cheese. Except I forgot the spoon. Rookie mistake.
When I got home I grabbed a spoon and dug into my cottage cheese.
Then I had some dates that weren’t mediocre. I love dates! I would date dates if that were legal and/or normal.
No… I’d date peanut butter. Let’s be real here.
Last week I had some amazing soup, and this week, I had delicious soup again! How lucky for me to pick two winning recipes in a row.
Last night’s star of the show was Alexis’s Vegetable, Chickpea and Quinoa Soup. I knew from the smell alone when I was making it on Sunday that it would be perfectly seasoned. I made sure to take a picture of it early in the day to get the full color, since I would be eating the soup later after hot yoga when the light was gone.
I am getting into the habit of trying to control my chocolate intake by giving myself just a little bit each night so that I don’t feel deprived.
I can go into that at another time, but I’ve been really enjoying my dark chocolate evenings! I followed the chocolate with a mug of Sleepytime tea to end the night.
Question of the Day:
Have you ever made hummus? Any tips for me?
