what i ate wednesday: issue 47

 Figure 1. Breakfast: a bowl (x2) of Post Shredded Wheat, Kashi Indigo Morning, a sliced banana, and almond milk.

Figure 2. Lunch: a spinach and romaine lettuce salad with carrots, cucumbers, grape tomatoes, green onions, peanuts, an Amy's Sonoma burger, red wine vinegar, and ketchup.

Figure 3. Afternoon snack: a Gala apple and dry-roasted almonds. If you follow my less serious life regularly, you'll note there have been (and will be) many more food pictures at work. Unfortunately, work is really busy and instead of natural light and grass and trees in the background, sometimes you'll have to tolerate fluorescent light and research proposals in the background.

Figure 4. Dinner: whole wheat spaghetti topped with marinara sauce and Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese, a Quorn 'chicken' patty, and roasted green beans. Tonight was M's night (the boyfriend) to make dinner all on his own. Spaghetti it is.

Figure 5. Dessert: whole wheat banana bread snack cake topped with peanut butter and chocolate chips.

And that concludes another What I Ate Wednesday (featuring what I ate Monday, August 20).

  1. i might have asked this before but why all the sudden did u decide a couple of weeks ago that you'll have 2 bowls of cereal every morning instead of just 1? ?? and i absolutely give credit to your boyfriend for wiping up that great dinner! it sure looks tasty to me

    1. good question! actually, i just split my portion (which is still really large) from one bowl into two. first it was to keep the cereal crispy, but now i have one bowl before my workout and one bowl after. my schedule has changed a bit. so really it is just one bowl, but separated in two. haha.

  8. I love your food posts! I've used a lot of your salad ideas...peanuts, hummus for dressing, lots of your other combos. Wanted to ask you...what are your beverages? Do you only drink water? Tea? Coffee? Just wondering. I hope you are doing well!!!
