Can I get a wahoo for Wednesday?! Halfway through the week! I’m pretty excited about it, despite the fact that I have a make-up class today, which means I will be spending 170 minutes of my day in First Amendment Law… hmmm. But that’s okay, already working on my goals and using those positive affirmations!




So seeing as it’s Wednesday, it’s time for another edition of What I Ate Wednesday! If you are new to WIAW, head on over to Peas and Crayons to see what it’s all about!

Peas and Crayons

Soooo the sick thing? Well, Saturday night I suddenly got a really sore throat. I thought maybe it was from my run that morning, or from sleeping with the windows open the night before (allergies?), but when I woke up Sunday with a horrible sore throat. Obviously I went straight to the internet and diagnosed myself with mono or strep throat. Good thing my sister-in-law and Kelsey calmed me down (seeing as it’s about gone today…). Oh the internet…

Anyway, this week’s WIAW is from Sunday, the day I was attempting to combat my sore throat!

For breakfast that morning I was seriously craving some carbs and avocado, so I grabbed my last Rudi’s wrap and topped it with mashed avocado, two scrambled eggs and salt and pepper.

It was SO GOOD. Omg I want to eat it again right now.

After breakfast I did some school work and then headed to the gym and ran a few errands. Although my throat was hurting the rest of me felt fine, so I went ahead and did the strength workout from Tina’s Bootcamp. It wasn’t my best workout ever, but I felt better to get outside and move a bit. When I got home I was craving green, so I made a salad with some steamed kale, chopped and sautéed Trader Joe’s chicken sausage, avocado, and a “dressing” made from nutritional yeast, chickpea miso, almond milk and a little garlic and pepper.

A couple hours later I was hungry again so I decided to try out this Chobani flip! There was only one left in the grocery store that I went to with Kelsey and Em after our run and brunch and Kelsey said it was so delicious that she wanted me to have it so I could try it! That’s true friendship.

Verdict? It was A-MAZING! The coconut flavor alone was so good, but the almonds and chocolate bits that you added in took it to a whole new level. Seriously, this one was a winner.

After snack time I headed to Whole Foods with my sister-in-law where I got a few groceries and stocked up on some illness-fighting items. When I got home I immediately made myself an Emergen-C drink. I HATE flavored water, so I basically chugged this. Talk about “Sunday Funday”… Not.

I also had some sore throat and zinc lozenges throughout the afternoon/evening:

For dinner I re-heated the food I’d gotten at the Whole Foods hot bar. It included egg-white strata; kale with peas, garlic and sweet potatoes; mashed potatoes; and then some sort of amazing dish that I honestly don’t know what it included. There were carrots and figs, and then some sort of other delicious mashed orange food… maybe butternut squash? I don’t know, but it was to die for.

I finished off the evening with another Emergen-C drink and then some trial mix and “Easter candies” from Whole Foods. And there was way more trial mix than that… I just was too impatient to photograph it first.

And in case you’re curious, I’m writing this on Tuesday and feeling a LOT better! Guess I don’t have mono… HA.


Have you tried a Chobani flip yet?

How do you combat an oncoming virus/illness?
