WIAW: Friday During Lent

Ciao!

As you are reading this, I am either sleeping in or meandering around Little Italy, hopefully eating some gelato or pasta. My Italian class has a field trip there today, and we don’t have to go into school since we’re just meeting at the train station at 9 AM. Booyahhhh!

Well Lent is coming to a close in a little over a week, but before the Hallelujah’s emerge and the lambs start leaping, there are still a couple of Fridays that involve abstinence from meat. I’ve mentioned this before, but going meatless is not much of a sacrifice for me since I love fish and eggs and Greek yogurt so much (maybe too much). Thus, I’ve made it a personal thing to also give up nut butter on Fridays, because THAT is a sacrifice for me. As you may know. So for this WIAW, I’m showing you all what I ate last Friday!

Breakfast

Fantastic green smoothie with milk, ½ frozen banana, ~1 c. frozen tropical fruit, ¼ c. oats, a big handful of spinach, chia seeds, half a scoop of vanilla protein powder, and coconut oil! Greek yogurt for spoon dipping. 

I got the idea of adding coconut oil to my smoothie from Robyn, and I thought it would be a great way to add some healthy fats in place of my usual nut butter. MAN was it delicious. The hint of coconut aroma and added creaminess…Just do it.

Snack

‘Chios (pistachios).

Kristi and I decided to write messages and draw dinosaurs on the shells because business calc is all about food, right?

Lunch

I’m actually a fan of this snacky lunch! A little bit o’ this, a little bit o’ that. Badda bing, badda boom. Fuggedaboudit.

I’m in Little Italy— just let me say that this one time.

Snack

Apparently, I’m not civilized enough to put things into bowls or cups…

Avocado toast with a soft boiled egg, s+p, and sriracha. I had to eat this on the go to pick up my friends for Legally Blonde!

Dessert

dried figs and greek yogurt

You definitely guessed it. 3 dried figs with Greek yogurt. {recycled photo}

And even though I didn’t eat these on Friday, can we just admire the dark, sweet juiciness of these strawberries my mom bought from Sam’s Club a couple days ago?

Like a jewel. 

Happy Wednesday, everyone!

So tell me:

What do you eat on meatless days? 

Which food do you usually eat every day without fail?

Have you ever added coconut oil to your smoothies?

What is the best in-season fruit you’ve eaten so far?
