Is it already Wednesday again? This summer is flying by WAY too fast. That means it is time for another What I Ate Wednesday/Really on Tuesday and Posted Wednesday. Yesterday was a great day with great people, good food and excellent weather. I love having a flexible work schedule that allows me to enjoy some full days out and about in my favorite city 🙂
Breakfast 7:30 am
Remember last week when I was so excited that I actually remembered to take pictures of all my food (mostly)? Well yea, first meal and I totally forgot! Luckily, I eat basically the same 2 meals for breakfast so I’m using last week’s picture. 2% Plain Greek yogurt with blueberries, flaxseed and cinnamon for me again, with my Ezekial toast and sunflower seed butter. It’s so good and the balance of protein, fat and fiber-rich carbohydrates keeps me going. No need to switch this up too often! However, I should use these WIAW posts as motivation to branch out with some of my meals so we’ll see what I can come up with.
Snack 11:00 am
Still munching on some peaches my mom brought back from the farm. They’ve been in the fridge so they have lasted fairly well. This was a bit wrinkly but still juicy and delicious.
Lunch 12:15 pm
After complaining last WIAW about my salad rut, I’ve reinvented my lunch! I still wanted to make lunch veggie heavy so I’ve basically been stuffing a scaled-down salad into a wrap. Today, I had my sprouted grain wrap with hummus, tabbouleh, spinach, sliced cucumber and sliced egg. What a fantastic combination. I still have yet to master the “roll and stay rolled” wrap technique but doesn’t mean it’s any less delicious. I had a side of carrots and habanero salsa. I needed an orange veggie at this lunch too and a kick of spice is always good. I followed this up with, what else, but a handful of blueberries. It is a small miracle I haven’t become that blueberry girl from Willy Wonka…I eat that many blueberries every day.
I couldn’t resist having a 1/2 of a blueberry muffin that I made (recipe coming Friday). While walking down Newbury Street, I also got a mini Pinkberry topped with fruit and a few mochi, sticky rice dough balls. I have mixed feelings about mochi, but decided to add some just to mix it up. The mini 3 oz size isn’t always advertised at Pinkberry but it’s there. Portion control is key, even with a seemingly healthy treat. I had to have an apple around 6:00 to hold me over until dinner. I didn’t want to get hangry.
Dinner 7:00 pm
I went out to dinner with some of my favorite people last night. We went to Kashmir, an Indian restaurant on Newbury street. Indian is without a doubt my favorite cuisine! I would happily eat it every day. The spices, incredibly flavorful food and copious vegetarian options makes it a huge win in my book. I like getting roti instead of traditional basmati rice or naan, because it is a bread made with whole wheat flour. The fritters were a delicious fried treat 🙂
I ended the night with a cup of hot herbal tea.
Here’s hoping I remember to actually take pictures of everything for next Wednesday. Have a good day!
