For some reason, the day has felt off to me. There hasn’t been a particular event or anything to make me feel this way; it was just a weird Wednesday I guess!
I’ve been enjoying my Food for Life English muffins for breakfast as of late. On Tuesday I had a whole egg on one, with red pepper spread on one half and sriracha and some cheese on another. This morning I went the PB&J route with the last of my fig jam. A side of fruit (1/2 a pear and blueberries with cinnamon) is non-negotiable!
For lunch I’ve been all about healthy meals that can be thrown together quickly. Today’s bowl had 1/3c brown rice, a serving of Cuban black beans, 1c frozen kale, and some frozen bell pepper strips and corn with hot sauce.
My afternoon snacks have made use of some carrot and celery sticks. Today I added a mammoth Fuji apple – note that this apple is bigger than my hand. Let’s just say all that fiber gave me a stomach ache for a little while.
After work I stopped by a DC Fit Week event where I learned about a few cool initiatives taking place in the city. I was also given a sample of VitaCoco water to try.
From there I headed to happy hour where it felt great to unwind with some friends. It was just what I needed to wipe away the weirdness of the day and end it on a high note. Friends will do that for ya, huh?
When I got home I knew exactly what I wanted – roasted potatoes and broccoli with baked beans. I was also starving so I cut a small Russet potato into pieces and roasted them on a baking sheet at 450*. They were done in ~25 minutes, just enough time for me to decompress from the day and prep the other parts of my dinner.
I’m already looking forward to Friday and am hoping that tomorrow feels more normal.
Happy hour – love it or leave it?
