What I Ate Wednesday
That sound would be me, jumping on the What I Ate Wednesday bandwagon.
‘Bout time, right? It seems everyone is doing this, and I’m as nosy as they come, so why not?
As always, my morning starts out with either a small glass of OJ, or, a glass of water with lemon. This morning I was too rushed to wash and cut the darn lemon – so OJ it was. (Yes, that is ice in my OJ. Love it that way).
As I ran out the door for my commute to work, I grabbed my iced coffee. I’m OBSESSED with coffee, and though my morning cup ‘o joe varies with the seasons and my moods, (extra-hot latte, iced latte, drip from my Cuisinart, French pressed, or this – iced French press), right now I’m deep in an iced coffee rut. And I’m okay with that. It’s been fiendishly hot in Charlotte already this spring (yes, still technically spring! I’m dreading the summer), so this hits the spot. This has just a splash of half & half in it. Mmm.
Breakfast, which I don’t have time to enjoy at home – it has to be schlepped to work with me – was a green smoothie and half a spelt English muffin (homemade) with almond butter (homemade).
Mid-morning – the kiddos and I went to the local Farmer’s Market to show our love, and stopped at the coffee shop for a treat… Iced Americano for me (which I only drank about half of), and apple juice and cookie from the Farmer’s Mkt for them!)
Lunch – was a behemoth salad made up of lettuce (local), cucumber, yellow pepper, celery, tomato (local), broccoli, cauliflower, navy beans, pine nuts, and garlic & chive goat cheese (local). Dressed with a little bit of evoo and aged balsamic vinegar, salt & pepper. On the side I had the other half of my spelt English muffin (homemade), toasted and a little baby peach (local). Also, unsweetened iced tea.
Mid-afternoon – I enjoyed one of my ‘Essential Bars’ (homemade) and seltzer!
Throughout the day, I also drank this:
Dinner – Tristan and I did not eat dinner together tonight, due to our schedules – so the “need” to “cook” wasn’t pressing… and I was busy puppy-wrangling and editing through my Asheville trip photos.
I whipped up an egg (local) with sautéed zucchini (local), onion, yellow pepper and a handful of spinach. The zucchini was actually stolen from my Mom’s garden while she’s on vacation this week! (Thanks Mom!). I dotted the scramble with Cholula. It was light on eggs, and heavy on veggies tonight.
I also had a small piece of Great Harvest Honey Whole Wheat toast with a dab of real butter.
And a glass of Vinho Verde. (There was another glass of wine later, as well!).
Evening snack – was half a container of 2% Fage with berries (all local!), a sprinkle of granola (homemade), and a drizzle of honey (local).
So, that was my first WIAW… hope it went okay!
