So yesterday’s eating was not so stellar. Was it a great water drinking day? Not so much. Was it a great veggie day? Not really. Did I maybe trade dinner for a latte? Yah, I kinda did. But in my defense I did track my calories, I did start my day with fruit and I did have a dairy free day. So I don’t think we can call it a total write off on the healthy scale.
Welcome to my WIAW post! Thanks Jenn for the great link up. Not only does this give me a great mid-week post idea, I love being reminded of my eating fails. lol. Not really, but in truth I love being forced to think about what I eat and documenting it. It really is a wonderful way to keep myself on track. I know I say this every week but it still amazes me how interested I am in what people eat. Blogging really does take people watching to a whole new level. Let’s get this party started!
Breakfast: Chocolate Soy Smoothie
Look at me drinking chocolate soy milk. This is a miracle everybody. I LOVE me some chocolate cow’s milk. I mean a pretty unhealthy love affair. So the worst think about going dairy free is giving up chocolate milk. I am still grieving. But I had a major boost to my mood when I found Silk Chocolate Soy Milk. I wasn’t convinced at first. I have been fooled by chocolate coconut milk before. I tried the milk first in a smoothie with chocolate protein powder, blueberries and raspberries. It might be my new favorite smoothie. I also tried the milk on its own today and I may be won over.
Lunch: Veggie Soup and A Bagel
I am sorry for the lame reused photo but my lunch was exactly the same as Monday. I had another bowl of my homemade veggie soup and an everything bagel. I for sure used too much garlic in this soup but it is still great and the huge container in the fridge is slowly being emptied. The everything bagel may contain milk ingredients but I am okay with that, I put some vegan margarine on it.
The afternoon was where my day fell apart in the eating department. After work I quickly ran home to grab some snacks before my double tutoring sessions. I was surpsrsingly not that hungry after work. Usually I am starving and want to eat a horse. I normally end up eating my dinner very early because I can’t wait anymore. Today I had some veggie chips with hummas and warmed up some turkey meatballs and that was it.
I love meatballs. I can make a huge batch in the crock pot add some sweet and sour sauce and have a yummy snack or dinner easily at hand. They can be pricey but a batch makes about ten servings or more which is pretty great!
Diner? Snack? Whatever
After my tutoring sessions I wasn’t hungry and I didn’t feel like going home. Instead I decided to hit up Starbucks for a latte. I am happily surprised that I like Soy lattes! YAY! I tried the caramel brulee latte and it was awesome. I got it with no whip. I enjoyed it with my furry friends while I wrote this post! Happy WIAW!
