Happy Wednesday! Half way through the week, folks! This week is slowly progressing for me, as it always does after a week off. For some reason, it takes me at least a week to get back into my routine, and this week seems to be worse than usual! Top the week off with a trip to Las Vegas, and you have one very tired teacher. Luckily, my students came back from break ready to learn, and they are making this week much easier for me!
After a weekend of late nights, cocktails, and 5 A.M. pizza , I was ready to welcome back a bit more balance in my life! I was craving veggies like mad, and thanks to Jenn from Peas and Crayons, I’ll be sharing that with you through What I Ate Wednesday!
8:00 a.m. Kombucha Gingerade, Gala Apple & a Clif Mojo Bar
I usually do my food shopping on Sunday afternoons, but being that I was flying across the United States at that time, food shopping never occurred. There were slim pickin’s for my breakfast on Tuesday. Yes, I could have just gone Monday afternoon, but quite honestly, I couldn’t gather up the energy. Does anyone else feel like food shopping takes a whole lot of motivation? I love it if I have the time to browse, but when I’m hungry or tired… forget about it. Anyway, I managed to put together this quick and easy breakfast, and it actually did a great job of holding me over until lunchtime!
11:45 – Hummus and kale Flatout wrap with Kashi TLC crackers on the side
Again, kind of scrounged this up, but it did the trick! I also enjoyed some baby carrots that were in the teacher’s room.
2:00 – Unpictured pistachios that were scarfed down while filling out report cards!
4:00 – Chocolate Protein Smoothie with lots of spinach!
By the time I got home from work I was craving something green and healthy like craazyy! I blended together frozen spinach, unsweetened almond milk, and chocolate protein powder for a delicious, healthy snack!
7:30 p.m. – Kale salad with Boca Burger
When dinnertime rolled around, I was still craving veggies (my body is trying to make up for the lack of this weekend)! While Bobby grilled himself a steak, I made a Boca burger for myself. I crumbled it over a huge bowl of kale, and then drizzled it all with some olive oil, sesame seeds, and sea salt. Delicious combo! The salad was the size of my head, but I was still wishing I had made myself some more. Next time!
8:45 – Margherita Crackers
I still wanted something to snack on after my dinner, and luckily I got a special package in the mail that I was excited to dig into! I promise I’ll fill you in later, but for now, I’ll leave it at these being ahhhmazing.
All in all, I think I successfully got my veggies in!
Do you crave healthy foods after a weekend of not-so-healthy eats? Clearly, I do.
Do you enjoy food shopping?
What is a meal that always leaves you craving more?
