I’m trying really hard to find an eloquent opening for this post. I just can’t truthfully, I’m writing this on Tuesday night after I just finished editing my third draft of a piece I’m writing for a magazine here, and my brain is flatlining. Well, that, and it’s pretty darn warm in my room, even with the window open – one of the only downfalls of living on the top floor of my apartment.
Yesterday reminded me that even though I have seven-ish weeks left of school, I do still have responsibilities. Tuesdays are always go, go, go, which I don’t mind, but they can be humbling, especially when it’s beautifully sunny outside and I’m at my job in the dungeon computer lab. The thought of food was the only thing that kept me going after 5 pm.
Breakfast included a new recipe that I’ll be sharing tomorrow. I made one of my favorite breakfasts as of late – a yogurt bowl! I topped plain Greek yogurt with almond meal, cinnamon, whole almonds, and chia seeds with two green muffins. Don’t be alarmed by the color: it’s just some hidden veggie power!
See that big pile ‘o broccoli? Ate it all! I had three eggs cooked in olive oil and roasted kabocha squash, too. After I finished that, I snagged a handful of almonds.
During my first shift at work, I snacked on a banana and sunflower seed butter. TJ’s sunflower seed butter trumps all other brands, in my opinion. When my boss saw me (actually, I usually try to hide my food because we’re not “supposed to” have food in the lab) he said “yummy.” That’s more than I get out of him, usually.
Dinner was one of those “gotta eat now” meals. I didn’t have a chance to grab dinner until 8:45, so I was hungry, but it was too late for any real meal to sound appealing to me. I made up a snacky dinner of toasted Ezekiel bread topped with PB, cottage cheese, and a bowl of green beans. It got the job done.
My new favorite TJ’s purchase is their honey mint dark chocolates. They’re basically peppermint patties, which I adore. I had two! But I was feeling particularly goofy so I took this picture.
Aaaand it’s officially Green Beer Day, so please excuse me while I go have a little to follow up all this green food.
Questions of the Day:
>>What green things did you eat yesterday? Green muffins, broccoli, green tipped banana, green beans!
>>What’s your favorite candy? Peppermint patties, Reeses’ Cups, plain ol’ chocolate.
