It’s a miracle. I actually got to bed a bit before 10 last night! That may be the lamest statement I could ever make, but coming from an insomniac, I’d say that’s progress.
The fact that’s WIAW helped put a smile on my face.
Anyways, since it’s Tuesday morning it meant I had to be up early to attend spin, so the early bedtime hour was a blessing in disguise.
When the alarm went off at 4:51 (yes, I set my alarm for weird times) I kind of wanted to punch it, but figured that energy would be better spent at spin class. Plus I always feel better after getting my butt moving a little bit.
When I arrived home I was ready to eat.
I’ve been meaning to take my my new buckwheat bowl on a little test drive and see how it would hold baking instead of microwaving. I was nervous it would be a huge fail, but it was pretty good! I definitely prefer the convenience of the microwave, but I can’t deny things taste a bit better baked.
Since Tuesday is my grocery shopping day, I made my way to the store to stock up once again.
When Lunch came around I wasn’t too hungry, but figured I needed something to keep my energy up.
I’m not one to have a smoothie for a meal replacement.
For one, it’s flipping cold, another I’m always slightly afraid the blended beverage will leave me hungry minutes later.
I whipped out my beloved vitamix and made a lovely smoothie that contained my new protein powder, frozen banana, frozen strawberries, spinach, a handful of oats, and almond butter.
Apparently, I should’ve just stayed in bed this morning after all, because as the day went on I felt progressively worse. Oops.
It kind of feels like my morning was one giant blur, probably because I’m feeling nauseas, but eventually I broke again for some more good food.
A bowl of strawberries in coconut milk.
Delicious and easy enough for my stomach to not complain.
When Dinner rolled around, I was feeling less than creative. As the day goes on, I just don’t feel the same inspiration to be creative with my meals.
This means I should really start meal planning at the end of the week…one day.
Lazy brain means oats for Dinner! I’ve tried the savory oats route when I was still eating eggs, but decided I might as well try it out again and see if it could taste as good without them.
It sounds super strange, but it was quite delicious.
In the bowl went oat bran cooked in veggie broth, a huge spoonful of nutritional yeast, spinach, green peas, broccoli, hummus, and a dab of coconut oil to finish it off.
It felt kind of weird eating oats savory, but it’s still mighty delicious and I was getting kind of sick of quinoa anyways.
I feel like today was a little lame in the veggie department, but hey not everyday is going to be perfect.
