I hope you all had a good-spirited April Fools’ Day! Nothing much happened around here. The only thing some people (including myself) did in school was turn on our cell phone alarms for 2:23 PM, and then we left them in our lockers to make a commotion right before school ended. Apparently it caused a little bit of concern, since I guess it is alarming (literally) when all the lockers seem to come to life. It wasn’t anything groundbreaking though. After all, we’ve gotta save some juice for senior prank 😉
With the lack of posts all last week, I have not shown my recent eats! What a shame since I obviously love posting food pictures (*cough* Instagram). So naturally, I’m joining this week’s WIAW party to share what fueled me through my moves and grooves during Benefit Week!
As always, hosted by my hero, Jenn. 😉
In absolutely no particular order, here are some of the things I’ve been eating:
Overnight oats in a mug
Overnight oats in a peanut butter jar. GAHHH. (Perfect for transporting to early morning AP Calc review.)
Overnight oats in an almond butter jar. Also taken to early AP Calc review. I’m sure people were judging, but guatever.
Gina’s cookie dough cereal with bananas and strawberries
Banana bread English muffin with nut butter, banana slices + glass o’ milk (haven’t had one of those in a while!)
Strawberry banana oats with a heavenly puddle of peanut butter.
Amanda’s oatmeal cookie dough smoothie (with spinach for green powahhh) + Greek yogurt for spoon dipping
Friday’s nut butter-less breakfast: Greek yogurt, strawberries, banana, chia, hemp, cinnamon, nutmeg, honey
Whole wheat wrap with avocado, spinach, soft boiled egg, feta, and salsa added later. SO GOOD. I had another variation of this for dinner one night with two eggs and spicy brown mustard instead of salsa. I highly recommend this combo!
Crab cakes on Benefit day!
Chicken, cheese, spinach, spicy brown mustard sandwich on some weird-looking, but delicious, purple fruit/seed bread
Naked Juice samples at school!
Cute cookies and goodies from the “Eloise at the Plaza”-themed dressing room
A crapton of white cheddar popcorn and animal crackers from our circus dressing room
I brought a Greek yogurt mess to dance almost every day last week. Included strawberries, banana slices, and nut butter.
Green tea frappuccino from Starbucks on Benefit day (Thanks to Susie and others for picking up 15 orders!)
I tried it! Carrots and almond butter— pretty darn tasty!
Greek yogurt with banana and pineapple. Loving the summery produce!
I’ve also been having lots of dried figs and Greek yogurt per usual. 😉
Farro, spinach, grilled chicken
Multigrain pasta, spinach, soft-boiled egg
Grilled chicken, spinach, feta + avocado toast
Farro, spinach, ground turkey, avocado, sriracha
The best tomatoes I’ve ever eaten. Just wash ’em and eat. So fresh and flavorful!
Dinner with the family (Ben was home for a day!) on Sunday! Ben got Sambal chicken and seafood. The other three of us shared a huge Sushi for Two platter. We also had some spring rolls as appetizer. Mmmmm.
How’s THAT for a recent eats recap?! It’s a good thing I just ate dinner, because otherwise, I would be hangry right about now. 😉
I hope you all have a great day!
So tell me:
What is the best vegetable you’ve eaten recently?
What do you like to put in wraps?
