my less serious day: confession

I usually eat my way through two bags of spinach each week. I consume enough broccoli to satisfy a family of four. I often eat an entire eggplant in one sitting.

Hi, my name is Sara. And I am a volume eater. 


Skirt, cardigan, and necklace: LOFT; tee: Gap; boots: Steve Madden.


This morning's workout was a 35-minute stationary bike ride (ramp interval) followed by a 15-minute walk with L. Sadly, this was my only walk of the day as I forgot about my afternoon walk and it is now too dark after work for my evening walks. This afternoon's workout was a 60-minute Body Pump class.


Breakfast was (surprise!) a bowl of cereal. Today's selection was Kashi U Black Currants & Walnuts cereal with 1/2 sliced banana and almond milk. Now, I don't want to spoil anything for my cereal review, but:

I went out to lunch today with a friend. First, we split this Caprese appetizer, which included crostini with basil, mozzarella, and tomato drizzled in balsamic vinegar (I had two) and a mixed green salad (I had 3/4).

For my entree I ordered the Spinach and Beet Salad, which include purple and golden beets, feta cheese, toasted walnuts, and french bread croutons in a white wine vinaigrette. I ate every bite.

My unattractive, but delicious dinner was a piece of whole wheat toast topped with goat cheese and an over-easy egg (salty, creamy goat cheese + runny egg yolk = delicious). A roasted eggplant on the side cooked simply with olive oil, salt, and pepper. And yes, I ate an entire eggplant.

Dessert was a glass of warm almond milk accompanied by a piece of whole wheat toast smeared with peanut butter, pumpkin puree, and melty chocolate chips.

Note: this post represents what happened in my world on Wednesday, November 9. 


  1. Mmmm...melty chocolate chips.
    I think I need to come shopping in your closet, or let you help me dress myself. You have the best outfits!

    I'm a total volume eater, too.

  2. I've never eaten a beet salad before. But they way yours looks, I think I need to jump on the bandwagon!

  3. I am loving your eats! That cereal sounds really good, looking forward to the review! :) I've never had warm almond milk, but I'll try it once I get my hands on some again :)

  4. So nice to be 'virtually' surrounded by fellow volume eaters :)

  5. That's that. I'm buying an eggplant and eating it.

  6. Most of the vegetables i buy for the "family," I eat by myself. I roasted a butternut squash last week and ate the entire thing in two days. I figure there are WAY worse things to eat a lot of!


  7. YUM! I have to say the egg-on-toast dinner looks like the best part of it to me lol! I've never seen an eggplant cooked that well either, you have some serious skills. Cute outfit too! :)

  8. all of your food looks awesome and let me say the food you are eating in volume is a okay girlie!! I love broccoli and often head a whole head or two at a time...I am kind of addicted! tonight i will probably be eating a load of brussels sprouts for the heck of it because i kind of love them but kind of dont, yes I am weird!

  9. Haha, it's cool. We go through 3-4 bags of romaine lettuce each week ;)
