What I Ate Wednesday #16: It’s All Orange Now

Good morning, Internet!

Halloween is only a couple days away, which means… not a whole lot, in my world. I hate to be a Debbie Downer, but Halloween is probably my least favorite holiday. I don’t like scary things (especially spiders and spider webs), I truly don’t understand the whole ‘slutty costume’ phenomenon, and thinking about buckets of candy gives me a headache.

But there is one thing I can get behind: the color ORANGE. I dig it. And I ate a whole lot of it yesterday. Go figure.

As a reminder, this is a time-stamped rundown of everything I ate yesterday… for better or for worse. Some weeks skew healthier than others and some are on the snackier side. Such is life.  

8:45am – Bulletproof coffee

102814 bp coffee

9:45am [WORKOUT] – Yoga Class @ LA Fitness

12:00pm – Leftover pumpkin pizza (thank you Stephanie for the recipe recommendation!) for lunch…

    1. UGH it was. I’m still dreaming about it. It was super easy, too. The trick is not to bother with making the dough from scratch; just buy one of the pre-made Trader Joe’s ones. 🙂
