so, i was going to make this post “day in the life” style. but then 1pm rolled around and i forgot to take anything but food photos.
we’ll do what i ate wednesday style instead!
thanks miss jenn for hosting this link party every week.
my morning started out bright dark and early with a big mug of pumpkin spice coffee.
a few hours later, it was breakfast + pumpkin rooibos tea time!
i had a banana and an apple – both with cinnamon raisin swirl peanut butter with trader joe’s pumpkin tea on the side.
lunch was a sweet potato (cooked in the microwave) and topped with cowboy caviar.
my mom gave me the recipe for the cowboy caviar last weekend and i made it right away. the recipe called for sour cream and mayo, but i used greek yogurt for the dressing instead. it turned out perfectly!
i ran a couple errands in the afternoon and grabbed my first pumpkin spiced latte of the season with my free drink coupon.
i ordered it with one less pump of syrup than usual and it was perfect! yum.
i also had about 3 more mugs of tea throughout the afternoon.
and then dinner was my old-school go-to dinner.
i literally ate this 4-5 nights a week during my first year of grad school.
it’s just extra firm tofu, sautéed in a pan with mixed frozen veggies, minced garlic, and some general tso’s sauce from trader joe’s.
now, regarding this month’s what i ate wednesday theme: spooky snacks & healthy halloween treats – i whipped up some of the twins’ healthy pumpkin pie fudge and had a little square for dinner. yum. and very seasonally appropriate! too bad i didn’t take a photo…
and that’s all she wrote.
have a great day!
