Hard to believe I’m already posting my 4th What I Ate Wednesday. Also hard to believe how many of the same foods I eat week after week. I guess I’m just consistent like that. Or maybe it’s time to switch things up… hmmmmm.
Yesterday’s breakfast was a soy latte from the cafe downstairs. And as usual, whenever I don’t bring my own coffee and plan to grab some at work, I end up being bombarded with urgent projects first thing in the morning that don’t let up until my stomach is fully grumbling. Hectic mornings like that are rare; they just always happen to hit when I’m without coffee. The lesson here is always be prepared (with coffee).
brunch lunch, I had overnight oats in an old jar of sunflower seed butter. I threw in some raspberries and chia seeds, and sprinkled granola on top.
I also picked up some seaweed salad from another cafe on the Lot that has sushi on Tuesdays. I was craving something green.
Later I shared a couple nectarines and a pluot with Andrew. Cherries too.
After work, I rushed to the gym in time for another Zumba class. I’ve definitely gotten the dancing workout bug. I completely hate loud pumping music in any type of club or bar setting, but I love it during a workout. I used to take dance classes at various studios around LA from time to time, but a couple minor foot injuries kind of put that on hold. Now that I’m injury-free (and no longer paying $175/month for bar method, I know, crazy), I’m out of excuses. Do any LA people out there know of any good dance studios on the west side of town? I really like taking class at The Edge, but it’s all the way up in Hollywood, which can easily become an hour-long traffic adventure if attempted at the wrong time of day.
Andrew and I made a Southwestern Cobb Salad for dinner. It consisted of onion, bell peppers, cherry tomatoes, hard-boiled eggs, avocado, and crushed up tortilla chips on a base of TJ’s Power Greens.
It was a colorful feast. CORN! Corn is what we forgot. I knew there was something…
And what a great episode of Extreme Weight Loss! Ammmmiright?
Oh yeah… and this little guy might have snuck in there, too (chocolate covered almond bits, mmmm).
As always, you can check out what others are eating at Peas & Crayons.
