i guess i just went ahead and took a day off from blogging yesterday, huh? i’m fine with that. i try to blog every weekday and most weekend days if i can, but if i don’t get to it on weekends, i don’t stress about it. with everything going on in the upcoming weeks, there might be a couple more missed weekdays, too.
anyway, i’m not here to talk about my blogging schedule. today is all about the food! yesterday’s meals, in fact.
i started out my day with an iced coffee, which i enjoyed on the bus on my way into lab.
i used about 2.5 cups of coffee, 1 tbsp sugarfree hazelnut syrup, and about 2 tbsp milk. it’s delicious! i’ve been rotating between hazelnut and salted caramel syrup, but i think salted caramel is my favorite.
breakfast was eaten in lab and was pretty simple – a lemon chobani.
(yes this is honey flavored – i forgot to take a photo of the lemon one before i ate it….)
i haven’t been feeling hungry for breakfast until about 10am, so i’ve been eating smaller meals because i am usually ready for lunch around noon or 1pm regardless of what kind of breakfast i eat.
i walked to badger market a couple buildings over to pick up lunch yesterday. i was unprepared and didn’t pack much to eat.
i was happy to see this salad at the market though. it was surprisingly good! it had lots of good lettuce (not just romaine), cucumbers, tomatoes, onion, yellow bell pepper, kalamata olives, grilled chicken, and feta.
i also got an iced coffee at the market for an afternoon pick-me-up!
after work, i scrambled around and did a ton of food prep. i washed and prepped all of our csa veggies, pre-made brad’s breakfasts for the week (now that we’re avoiding grains, he’s been having eggs every morning, but i can’t make them fresh every day, so i make them ahead of time), cleaned our coffee-maker, and made dinner.
this was a really easy dinner that kind of randomly came together. we had some ground chicken in the freezer, so i thawed that and browned it was spicy taco seasoning.
then i steamed a sweet potato in the microwave and started piling things on.
that’s sweet potato on the bottom, taco chicken, sharp cheddar cheese, salsa, tomato, and roasted zucchini & mushrooms.
it was very good and very filling! this left me stuffed….for about an hour.
then i had a couple bites of ice cream straight from the container (no photo evidence – it happened too quickly!).
thanks to jenn for hosting this what i ate wednesday link-up every week!
i’ve got a full to-do list for the day, so i’m going to get to it!
enjoy your wednesday!
if you drink coffee, do you usually make it yourself or buy it?
i try to make my own as much as possible, but sometimes buying it is so convenient! i have a hard time passing up a coffee shop if i’m out running errands or something.
