Can you believe I went a whole day without eating veggies? I should be ashamed as this month’s What I Ate Wednesday Challenge is after all to add an extra cup of veggies. If you don’t know what WIAW is, check it out on Peas and Crayons.I thought I’d share my Saturday eats with you anyway because I just thought it was pretty funny. Don’t worry, I made up for it these past few days. Or at least I very well attempted.
Woke up early to head to my 8:30am Anatomy class. I had Van’s Gluten & Wheat Free Blueberry Waffles with cashew butter, blueberries and a drizzle of maple syrup. Mmm, mmm good!For my little snack during class I brought along some raw cashews. When 9:30am hits, I usually start to crash and my lunch break isn’t until 11:20am. I need something to munch on, asap!Lunch? I wouldn’t call it lunch as it was more of a fruit and cheese platter. I had kettle cooked chips with strawberries and two Babybel cheeses. Simple? Yes. Healthiest? No. Delicious? Absolutely!While in lab (shh, we aren’t allowed to eat there) I munched on a Clif white chocolate macadamia bar. I seriously can’t get tired of this flavor. Now watch me hate it next week. Just. Watch.I came home with the only heartburn. [*cough.too.much.acidic.food.cough*] I eased it with raspberry Chobani. Silly me, it has raspberries. More acid in my tummy. Oh Sabrina, you never learn!Your going to really laugh at this one. I opted for more acid later by having tomato basil soup. What? I was really craving soup and my tummy was feeling better. Yes, a tomato isn’t a veggie, it’s a fruit (hence this all fruit, no veggies title). I also had a basil mozzarella flat bread slice on the side.Dessert? Oh you know I had to have some chocolate mousse. But this time instead of adding butter, I added the dark chocolate cream cheese spread for a cheesecake like mousse. Result? Now I can eat something cheesecake-y everyday without baking. Okay, I realized that wasn’t even a real answer. It was delicious! Thick dark chocolate “cheesecake” goodness in bowl.I think I slightly overdid it on the acid foods today. Berries. Tomato. Cheese. Chocolate. Sigh! But it was delicious and I made sure that Sunday was a bit more on the bland side by having bananas, pasta, rice and such.
Question: Have you ever gone a whole day without eating veggies?
Gee, the last time I did that was maybe last year during my I had veggies era, which by the way lasted about 23 years!
