So this week has been CRAZY! And today’s WIAW is from my first day with nothing but errands and lounging around to do in a loooong time! Let’s rewind: I had my last week at my internship, I ran 15 miles and then flew to KC, I drove to Colorado Springs and then climbed a 14er solo, the next morning I flew to Boston for HLS, and then I came home, ran 16 miles and drove 2 hours south and back to get MOLLY MOLLY!
Whew! In other words, the food I’m showing you from tuesday is zero effort food, and mostly those things I missed during all the time I was away (prepare yourself for some repetition…). As usual, thanks to Jen at Peas and Crayons for hosting What I Ate Wednesday!
For breakfast I had plenty of time in the morning (the only to do item I had was laundry!) so I made myself a bowl of Apple Pie Oats.
They were disgusting. Couldn’t finish them off… ha.
A while later I finished off some carrots that survived my time away in the fridge with some TJ’s salsa and Justin’s Honey Peanut Butter. This stuff is AMAZING! It’s by far my favorite Justin’s flavor!
After my snack I headed to the gym for a yoga class. I did 10 min walking on the treadmill and then went to the class… I left halfway through. The teacher was doing very advanced moves and holding them for a really long time. Basically I’d attempt the move, not be able to do it and then sit there and stretch until she moved on… I left and did some upper and lower body leg weights. I needed to run some errands (including the grocery store!) after the gym so I snacked on a mini lara bar.
Once I got back I made up a quick salad with some cucumber, smoked salmon and then a Greek Yogurt dip from TJ’s mixed with milk to thin it out.
I had a light lunch because I’d been dying to have some more of my protein ice cream! I had it with some PB2 mixed with Sunwarrior Protein Powder, frozen berries, and then the last few mint M&Ms that I found in my freezer!
In the afternoon I was craving some more frozen berries, so I had them with milk and a little almond butter as well!
Since I had lunch 1, lunch 2, and my snack so late I wasn’t super hungry for a real dinner. I had the rest of my smoked salmon, some cucumber and more of that amazing Trader Joe’s Greek Yogurt Dip!
Afterwards I had some more protein ice cream, but this time I put STUFT Mama’s coconut cookie dough crumble on top!
I ended up having some more frozen berries after this, just couldn’t get enough!
I hope I got all of those cravings out of my system! Haha, I missed my protein ice cream!
What are foods that you miss when you’re away?
What’s your favorite nut butter?
