Phew! It feels like it’s been AGES since I last had an intimate web-based conversation with you. Between drinking my body weight in Mojitos on a Puerto Rican beach and tackling the first pot of steamed clams for the season, all of my blogging intentions checked out at the time. Like…K Byeeee!
But I couldn’t go too long without oversharing my daily eats, so let’s kick this WIAW into overdrive!
After an early morning of banana oatmeal making with 3rd graders, I chowed down on an old standby breakfast I used to make my senior year of college.
1 cup shredded wheat (crushed) // 1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt // 3/4 cup unsweetened almond milk // 1/2 banana // 1 tablespoon peanut butter // lots of cinnamon
It’s kinda like overnight oats, except that the shredded wheat soaks up errthang in like 10 minutes before it comes a pile of creamy dreamy … soggy cereal. Yeah…I’m one of those peeps. I’ll let my cereal chill out for a good 5 minutes before it disintegrates onto my spoon. Simply the best.
While we finally experienced what spring is supposed to feel like around these parts, a busy afternoon schedule kept me from taking lunch al fresco.
black bean burger // fried egg // lettuce wrap // apple on side
I wasn’t super hungry for lunch, but knowing I had 2 classes to teach at 1, I decided an early lunch was much better than being arm-gnawingly hungry afterwards. Lunch struggles are real son.
A small afternoon lull resulted in trying one of the new KIND bar flavors while perusing the latest Food & Nutrition issue. It tasted like the raspberry filled cookies I used to devour at the bakery I used to work at. Dangerously good.
And after convincing my after school kids to put avocado in smoothies, I was more than ready to stop talking about food all day and simply eat it.
The usual suspects. Salmon patty. Salad. And a peanut butter coated carrot on the side. I’m a simple kinda gal…..otherwise known as I’m lazy and don’t want to actually put any effort into making dinner.
While I fully intended to enjoy the sunshine for a run after work, the day after my first BBG workout and an early morning wakeup left me with a wet noodle of motivation to pound some pavement. Not like I have a 5k this weekend and haven’t run in a few weeks or anything.
I settled for a half hour walk along the water, which is never a hard sell. I am forever in gratitude that I call this my backyard.
Ahh, it feels good to be home. In a general sense, and blogging sense because I’m all about those metaphors, yo.
Make it a great day!
Soggy or crunchy cereal?
What do you call your backyard?
