Good morning and happy birthday month to me! It’s hard to believe it’s already August! This is my last Wednesday with my summer job as a law firm receptionist, so it’s my last day of full-time working eats. Hopefully my eats will be more varied and interesting once I’m a student again . Thanks again to Jenn for hosting WIAW. For those of you who don’t know, Jen over at Peas and Crayons hosts WIAW every week – check out her blog for more information on it and to find some new blogs to read.
Breakfast was raspberry vanilla overnight oats – old fashioned oats, vanilla greek yogurt, unsweetened vanilla almond milk, chia seeds, a splash of vanilla extract and frozen raspberries (that thaw overnight). After being out of town for a few days over the weekend, I was seriously missing my overnight oats! I don’t know what I’m going to do when I’m roadtripping from New Hampshire to Houston in a few days and can’t have my oats again!
My mid-morning snack was a Cliff Kid’s Iced Oatmeal Cookie Zbar. I haven’t had one in a while and I almost forgot how good they are, almost. Yum!
Lunch was a piece of toasted multigrain pumpkin seed bread topped with spinach artichoke hummus, an apple topped with Justin’s Maple Almond Butter, and a bowl of Chobani’s new flavor, Vanilla Chocolate Chunk, topped with some Bear Naked Heavenly Chocolate granola. If you have not tried the new Chobani flavor, do it! It is so good. It’s really more of a dessert though. After I took my first bite of deliciousness, I looked on the label and found that it has 30 grams of sugar. So, it’s not the healthiest, but it’s fairly healthy for a sweet treat!
Teddy was clearly eyeing my apples at lunch! He can’t decide if he likes apples or almond butter more .
After work, I took Teddy on a short walk followed by a 2 mile run around the neighborhood. I was very grateful for the sub-80 temperatures on my run yesterday!
Dinner was sesame seared tuna (recipe here) along with a kale salad with chickpeas, dried cranberries and a homemade tahini vinaigrette. It was just the delicious, healthy meal I needed after a weekend of mostly junk food.
After dinner, I enjoyed a refreshing glass of 90+ Cellars Sauvignon Blanc (from the Marlborough region, of course) and an un-pictured bowl of ice cream while I watched the Olympics. Gymnastics is and always will be the best sport ever!
And that’s what I ate
Wednesday Tuesday! Be back tomorrow with a new recipe!
