So I’m back in Chicago and glad to be here! I’m ready to get this move going (this weekend!), so being back gets me a step closer to that. Today’s What I Ate Wednesday comes from my first full day back: Monday! If you’re new to WIAW, head on over to Peas and Crayons to see what it’s all about!

Peas and Crayons

This may seem weird, but for breakfast I had a beef patty! I’d bought some from Trader Joe’s and was really craving some read meat when I woke up, so I cooked one up alongside some spinach sauteed in coconut oil and a sweet potato! Plenty of ketchup was involved…

After doing some organizing and some address changing (still need to do a lot of that…) I threw on some “appropriate” looking clothing that wouldn’t make me die in the hot weather we’re having to go run some errands and officially sign my lease.

It had been about 4 hours since breakfast and my stomach was growling so I grabbed a handful of almonds on my way out the door.

After signing my lease I headed to a new coffee shop called Fuel Station near my current apartment to check it out. My sister in law had told me they have juice so I wanted to give it a try. I ordered their apple, kale and spinach juice:

It was VERY green tasting! Haha not delicious but not bad either. I’m definitely going back to Fuel Station though, it was a really cute coffee shop with a lot of food options as well, and the workers were so friendly.

I also had a Quest Bar and called it lunch… not exactly a normal lunch but it worked for my schedule that day.

After a couple hours of work I walked to my Chiropractor appointment (about 1.2 miles away) and then walked home. When I got back I was so hungry so I had an early dinner around 5:30. I made up a big salad with what I had on hand: Romaine, beets, hearts of palm, two over easy eggs, olive oil and balsamic vinegar.

Wasn’t super filling so I had some “ice cream” right after made with Trader Joe’s frozen tropical mix (banana, mango, pineapple and strawberry), almond milk, stevia, vanilla, a pinch of salt and xantham gum all blended in the vitamix. I top it with “chocolate sauce” which is just Sunwarrior Vanilla Protein Powder mixed with Cocoa Powder.

A couple hours later I was feeling snacky (and still HOT) so I had some grapes that I had frozen. I could not stop (these are SO good) and had this bowl x 3!

Now I’m out of frozen grapes… womp womp. Lesson learned.


What are your favorite hot weather foods?

Have you moved recently? Any tips?

Anyone else a frozen grape fan?
