Yesterday I woke up excited for the last day of Passover. It’s been quite a journey over the past week, between trips home to Dallas and then activities going on DC. Not only that, I was excited for one last day of Passover foods.
Breakfast was some fruit topped with the last few spoonfuls of charoset. Plus I made matzah brei with 1 egg, about a third of a piece of matzah, salt, pepper, and some cheese. It was like a little egg pancake, topped with red pepper spread.
Lunch was another junk salad and then snack was more Greek yogurt.
For dinner I went to Austin Grill to meet up with friends to say goodbye to Emily and Casey who are moving to Seattle tomorrow. Since it wasn’t sundown I had another grilled chicken salad and broke Passover with a few tortilla chips that honestly weren’t so good.
Instead I kicked off the return to whole gluten free grains with a Food for life English muffin with almond butter and jelly plus some fruit.
Lunch was the last serving of shakshuka with spinach(recipe coming this week!) plus salad x2.
I had more yogurt for a snack plus a Passion iced tea from Starbucks while I ran an errand on campus. I couldn’t work out today (I overstretched my knee and my fave Aussie trainer recommended taking a couple of rest days to let it heal) so I stopped by Trader Joe’s on the way home from work. I needed to pick up a few things.
Dinner was a number of smaller “tastes” to suit my cravings – a small bowl of asparagus and broccoli soup with 1/3c brown rice and cheddar cheese mixed in, a serving of baked beans (which tasted so. good.) and some chicken and roasted cauliflower with BBQ sauce.
Afterwards I did some cleaning around the apartment and put my pantry back together. As you can see, it’s pretty organized and not really restocked. I’m not sure I’m going to fully restock since I felt pretty good eating less grains over the last week. We shall see.
I also put away the goodies my mom mailed me – Parmesan crisps, Cotswald honey from their trip to England, and dark chocolate almonds. The Kids are Alright arrived from Netflix and I’m probably going to snack on a pear before bed! Gnight!
