Is that a thing?
Ordinarily I wouldn’t be thrilled that it’s only Wednesday, but on Thursdays I only have class in the morning! Granted I work in the afternoon…but it’s still nice to know it’s my last full day of the week before Friday.
My eats this week have been super out of the ordinary for me. Between running, stretching/foam rolling (essential!) university applications, school, studying, homework, work, blogging and (god forbid) friends, I have barely had time to catch my breath – in a good way! I don’t feel overwhelmed like I did back in January.
Well…maybe I am just a little bit in over my head. But what’s that saying – if you’re not drowning your floating?
If you’re floating you’re drowning?
Let’s just go with this.
Thanks to Jenn for hosting the most fun of the week!
When lunches are either a sandwich or dinner leftovers. When I’m home I have been eating…you guessed it, PANINIS. Can you say the BEST valentine’s day present EVER? Yes I am fully aware I am the coolest person you know. It’s all good, I won’t tell. Sometimes I just grill my sandwich in a pan but I always miss the pretty lines.
The combination that is hummus + avocado needs to be shared with the world. My mom refuses to try it but it is second only to peanut butter and chocolate in my books. And that is saying a LOT.
And when dinners are either sandwiches thrown onto the panini press or the entire fridge thrown onto the barbecue! This heat wave we’re having over here (it’s supposed to be six degrees today – 43F) just makes me want to run around outside in shorts. Although I’m pretty sure if I did that people would think I am more crazy than I already am. I DID though see a ton of people in shorts on my run – and I was the one sweating!
Basically anything you like to eat becomes 900 000x better on the barbecue. We have been having grilled chicken (obviously), burgers, eggplant, peppers, mushrooms, sandwiches (!) and basically our entire fridge. You should really be doing the same.
Oh, and while you’re at it, put your pizza on the barbecue. I promise you won’t be sorry.
Of course I’ve been snacking like a fiend, but that’s just a given. There have been no perfectly proportioned snacks nor protein shakes – I grab what I want when I want. I’m currently obsessed with pumpkin pie larabar ALT bars, almonds and raisins, and apples with peanut butter. All the apples with peanut butter.
We also made these sprouted flour chocolate chip cookies that are SO good. The only unhealthy thing in them is sugar and we substituted half of it for stevia.
Looking back on it, my eats haven’t been that different! They are simply what I want, when I want them. And I’m loving it.
Do you eat differently when you’re busy?
