Happy Wednesday! Welcome to my log of food from Saturday’s race day. I ran a 5K in the morning and then spent part of the afternoon seeing a movie/eating delicious food. If you are unfamiliar with What I Ate Wednesday, check out Jenn’s blog for all the info. Thanks for the linkup!!
I was up pretty early to get to the race and had my normal, boring, everyday breakfast: eggs and a green smoothie:
Post race I knew it would be a little while before more food, so I ate a Vega Sport bar (one):
We met a friend for brunch at Le Pain Quotidien and I was very pleased with their healthy options. I had actually never been in one because I assumed it was a store chock full of french bread but silly me. Never assume. I had the tofu scramble:
We ate lunch at Cava, which if you are unfamiliar is basically a Chipotle for Mediterranean food. I got some magical power greens mixture as my base and then added falafel, hummus, onions, tomatoes, and ALL THE HOT SAUCE.
We stopped for some espresso (me) and a cappuccino (Neil). We both would have normally gotten espressos, but I wanted to see the fancy pouring pattern:
I made some of the black bean pasta from our wild trip to Costco last week and I was very impressed! It tastes nothing like black beans and is PACKED with protein (25 grams!), meaning that we didn’t have to incorporate a meat into this dish. I just sauteed onion, garlic, and mushrooms and added that to the pasta. I needed some color, so I diced up some tomatoes and threw those on too. So good!
I can’t remember if I had a dessert or not that night, but knowing me I probably inhaled a bunch of dates. I have no idea where this craving for dates has come from but I’ve been eating them for like 2 weeks now. Weird. Here are some dates:
No, I didn’t measure them. This was a picture from a recipe I posted. I just grab handfuls and shove them in my mouth.
Tonight I have to make lunch for my work tomorrow because we choose a name every week and that person has to bring in food one of the days. I am going to overload them with delicious greens, veggies, and quinoa. Check back for the finished product!
Question of the day: Did you have any atypical eats this week? Has anyone else had black bean pasta?
