Hey everyone, I hope you’re all having a good week! If you haven’t taken my blog survey, I’d really appreciate it, you can find it here!

For this week’s What I Ate Wednesday I thought I’d mix things up and do a weekend day! I have to be honest, it takes real focus for me to remember to take pictures of my food on any day other than Monday or Tuesday when I have a time crunch! So proud I managed this one.

If you’re new to WIAW, head on over to Peas and Crayons to see what it’s all about, and to check out the other blogs participating!


Peas and Crayons

I started off the morning with half a banana and coconut butter before heading to the gym. I ran 1.5 miles on the treadmill (after warming up on the elliptical), and then did my gym’s version of body pump. I wasn’t going to, but I was moving from the treadmill to another elliptical and I saw that they were about to start so I figured I should just go for it! SO glad I did, it was fun!

When I got home I was staaaarving, so I threw together a green smoothie with spinach, almond milk, peaches, the other half of my banana, xantham gum, stevia and Vanilla Sunwarrior Protein Powder (plus some ice cubes). I also had a slice of Udi’s GF bread with coconut butter and maple syrup on the side.

After breakfast, I made myself a mug of coffee and sat in my closet to do some reading for school. Why my closet? 1) It’s become my “quiet space.” I realize that makes no sense when you live alone, but the computer isn’t allowed and it’s nice and cozy. 2) It’s the warmest place in my apartment, especially when I set my space heater on the floor next to me.

2 hours later, I was hungry again. Seriously. I guess that’s what running + strength training does to you. I resisted for half an hour and then threw together this quick lunch: sliced baby carrots, “southern greens” from Trader Joe’s and 2 Trader Joe’s chicken sausages all sautéed in coconut oil, topped with a bit of salt and pepper. Served with ketchup to keep it classy.

If you noticed, I ate a LOT of sriracha and hot sauce before winter break, and now I’m eating ketchup instead. I found that all that spice upset my stomach too much, so I’ve given it up, to be enjoyed on occasion rather than all day…

After lunch I made some Honey Vanilla Chamomile tea and did some blog work.

Then, it was time to head to Whole Foods! First I stopped at my brother and sister-in-law’s apartment (well… I had to since I was borrowing their car), but it was nice to sit and chat with them for a while.

While at Whole Foods I picked my dinner up from the hot bar! This is what I do every Sunday, it’s my ritual! I go to Whole Foods and after shopping I grab a bunch of things from the hot bar for dinner. It’s the little things in life.

For dessert, I made some “peach sorbet” and served it along with some chocolates I also grabbed from Whole Foods. I made the sorbet in my vitamix, so unless you have one I won’t annoy you with the recipe, but it’s basically frozen peaches, a bit of almond milk and ice.

And after dinner, I had some tea that my friend, Caroline, gave me for Christmas (she’s the one I visited in San Francisco). A friend of hers, Sina, lives in San Francisco and owns Red Circle Tea.

Red Circle Tea

From her About Us page:

I’ve been studying tea for 8 years and my teacher is a 4th generation tea master who lives in China.

I personally travel to China twice a year to source fresh, seasonal, sustainable, hand processed small batches of tea. Not all teas are created equal, that’s why I source the highest grades of teas that cannot be found on the mainstream market. I work directly with Chinese farmers and encourage them to bring back heritage varietals of tea that are being lost to more commercially produced teas.

How cool is she?! Anyway, the tea Caroline gave me was Chrysanthemum and at first I thought this tea was a little odd, or that it wouldn’t really flavor the water, but I LOVE it. LOVE. Seriously. It just tastes so much more fresh than bagged tea. And it’s fun!

Seeing as I had dinner at 5:30… (insert age joke here), I was feeling a little hungry around 8:30, so I finished off my evening with another bowl of peach sorbet while watching Parenthood, my new Netflix addiction thanks to Janae.
