Hey everyone! Thank you so much for all your birthday wishes, I loved reading all of them! I had a great birthday, but more on that another time. Today is Wednesday, which means another WIAW post! If you’re new to What I Ate Wednesday, head over to Peas and Crayons to find out what it’s all about, and to see the other participating blogs!
Today’s WIAW comes from Monday, my last day as a 24 year-old! I started off the morning with my current favorite breakfast: 2 eggs over easy on a sweet potato! I top it with hot sauce from Trader Joe’s and Monday I also sliced and steamed 2 big carrots and mixed them in the last of my Tzatziki sauce from Trader Joe’s.
While doing some studying for the MPRE, I snacked on a handful of walnuts, almonds and pumpkin seeds, and a dark chocolate Hershey Kiss.
For lunch I was dying to try this gluten free Chicken Noodle Soup I found at Whole Foods!
It was really good! I added about 1/2 cup of peas to add some extra veggies to the soup, and had a piece of Udi’s bread on the side.
I had a doctor’s appointment to get some stiches out (I had 2 moles removed last week – Go get your skin checked!!!) and then I had to pick up some crafts and prizes for Girls on the Run. Since it was so cold I grabbed a Mista (café au lait) on my way to the dollar tree. (p.s. EVERYTHING is a dollar in that store! I was amazed at what you could get for a DOLLAR!)
While the girls were running their practice 5K, I had a KIND bar. Then I had half a banana (unpictured) after practice on my way to the gym.
When I got home I realized I forgot to turn the crockpot to warm (it was on high…) so the chicken in my chicken soup was a little overcooked. But it smelled amazing!
1 bunches celery (stalks?)
8 medium carrots
1.5 cups steamed peas
1 quart chicken broth
2 chicken breasts
2 cups water
seasoning: rosemary, thyme, anything! (I used rosemary, thyme, and red pepper flakes).
Put chicken breasts in bottom of crockpot. Slice celery and onion and add to pot. Peel and slice carrots and add to pot. Pour in chicken broth and water. Add seasoning. Cook on High for 5-6 hours. Turn of and stir in peas as well as break up chicken breasts. I used a 2 prong fork and another big fork.
I had to have a bowl right away! It was so good since I was still freezing from being outside, even after being in the gym for an hour for my workout!
After dinner I had some of the halloween candy I got from a bulk store! Is it weird that the peanuts were my favorite part?
Later on I had some Yogi Tea…
And I also sliced up a Honeycrisp apple to munch on! I like dipping the apple slices in my warm tea… Yes I’m special.
So there you have it! My last day as a 24 year old. I think the Halloween candy was pretty key in there. Loooove candy corn!
