hooray for wednesday! this week is going by really quickly – probably because i’ve got so much on my plate. i’m feeling a bit pressured about all i have to do, so i hope it continues to speed by while i’m getting things done.
i remembered to take photos of all of my meals and snacks yesterday in preparation for today’s what i ate wednesday!
the day started out with some coffee at the computer as i put together yesterday’s blog post.
then the coffee moved with me to the counter where i also ate my breakfast smoothie while finishing up my iin module.
this smoothie had banana, spinach, very cherry berry blend, vanilla protein powder, maca powder, and almond milk. it was delicious!
i also had my vitamins (minus the multi, which i’m pretty sure is the culprit of my stomach troubles. gotta find a new multi!).
after a couple hours of work work work, i gathered lunch. i say gathered because i pretty much ate a bunch of leftovers that were in the fridge.
the last of my triple bean salad.
some pearl cous cous with veggies leftover from a couple nights ago.
and some grapes!
[don’t mind all of the dog hair on the table. we have dogs. it happens.]
after more work, errands, and csa pick-up in the afternoon, i came home and had a little snack at the computer while i did more work.
a coconut larabar (my first time trying this one – i like it!) and an applesauce squeeze pack.
then i finished up a couple things on the computer and made myself dinner.
i made these lentil sloppy joes a while ago and froze some individual portions of it, so i finally thawed one and plopped it on top of a huge salad.
i should have put something in these photos for size comparison because this was a gigantic salad. that bowl is meant to be a serving dish…
anyway. the salad had lettuce, tomatoes, mushrooms, and lentils. simple, tasty, and filling!
but not quite satisfying enough. i wanted something sweet, and since i can’t have the ice cream that’s in the freezer because i’m not eating dairy right now, i whipped up some banana soft serve!
this batch had an extra treat – cocoa powder and a tiny bit of almond extract to add that cakey flavor!
that satisfied my sweet tooth for the night!
it’s definitely not second nature yet for me to avoid dairy. i really really really wanted to put some cheese on my salad for dinner and i would have given just about anything for some real soft serve or frozen yogurt for dessert, but i think i’m handling it pretty well.
on the agenda today – nothing but work! i’m hoping to kick my to-do list’s butt again today. i’m going to have to get busy though, i’ve got a lot on it!
have a great day!
what do you usually eat when you’re craving something sweet after dinner?
dark chocolate or banana soft serve work for me, but brad and i do make the occasional culver’s run for some frozen custard!
