Food is basically the most important part of my day. I eat. Often.
I hate getting hangry.
I haven’t participated in What I Ate Wednesday yet because I have a hard time remembering to take pictures of all my meals/snacks throughout the day. The Wellness Wednesday prompt this week had a WIAW theme, so I thought this would be a good opportunity to share what a normal day of meals looks like for me.
I usually wake up around 6:05am. Yesterday I didn’t get out of bed until 6:40am. Needless to say, it was a hectic morning. I started my day with my favorite beverage, black coffee in my favorite Starbucks mug.
I got to work around 8:00am and started my work day by reading through email and checking my company Facebook. It can be pretty hectic depending on how many emails I have. Around 9:00am I started to get hungry. For breakfast I had a serving of cottage cheese with a handful of almonds:
Around 11:00am, while working on a marketing brief about Essential Fatty acids, I got hungry again (shocking, I know). I had another handful of almonds, lovingly displayed my nerdy textbook:
At 12:30pm I decided to break for lunch. I had more of working lunch since I’m on a few tight deadlines and I enjoyed my salad at my desk.
After my salad, I decided to take a walk. Unfortunately it was raining, so my walk didn’t really pan out. Instead I sat in the lobby and enjoyed my orange with a side of Instagram.
I hit a mid afternoon slump around 3:00pm and treated myself to a cup of tea. I used Irish breakfast tea and added almond milk and a dash of cinnamon. It was as yummy as a cup of coffee.
The second part of my day passed pretty quickly and I left the office around 5:15pm. I got home about an hour later and started prepping flautas and chipotle squash for dinner. By this time, I was seriously hungry and ready for a meal. The picture is not the best, but you get the idea.
The flautas are a new thing that I’ve started making. I take a small tortilla, spread a layer of refried black beans, cheese, diced shallots, fresh tomato and jalapeño. Then I roll the tortilla, flatten it and pan sear it until the cheese melts. I like to serve it with a salsa sour cream mixture. It’s a slightly different yet delicious take on tacos.
I ended my night by catching up on The Walking Dead and Better Call Saul. If you’re not watching either or both of those shows, you’re totally missing out.
Your turn: what’s your favorite meal of the day? Do you love/hate when people post pictures of their meals on social media?
