Surprise- not only is it National Running Day, but it’s also time to talk about another one of my favorite subjects – food! That’s right, it’s What I Ate Wednesday! These were my eats from YESTERDAY, because that is when I remembered to take photos. I really need to start taking photos on a different day of the week.
Basically as I’m typing this, I realize how lucky I am. B makes me soooo much of my food. It’s not that I don’t enjoy cooking or don’t know how to cook – it’s frankly because some days I’m just too crazed to think about cooking/eating/etc. and B takes care of me. So not to be overly gushy, but I can’t help write this post without acknowledging that. Anyway, breakfast included egg whites with hot peppers, spinach and frozen veggies. B made me the breakfast at home and I brought it into the office – and plated it – so I could eat this delicious meal at my desk.
I also had a blueberry snack mid-morning.
This week is our office’s Wellness Week so for lunch we had a salad bar potluck! Each person in our office contributed some ingredient for a salad and we made our own salads at lunch. BEST IDEA EVER. Check out my delicious salad- there’s feta cheese, blueberries, spinach, mixed greens, craisins, hard boiled egg, tomatoes, a few bites of chicken, chickpeas, carrots, cucumbers, and beans. No dressing – I’m weird like that. And served with an apple!
Snacks the day included baby carrots, a nectarine and perrier, a handful of cashews and wintergreen mints.
Dinner was great, as usual. I fully intended on making dinner but some client work popped up unexpectedly so after I started to chop up veggies, B took over. He made some pork from the West Side Market, cauliflower and broccoli.
Yum! I was going to end the day with an Arctic Zero sundae, but I simply was too tired to do so.Yup, too tired for dessert … it doesn’t happen often, but it happens!
Some questions for you:
- Do you have someone in your life that makes you meals when you’re short on time?
- What are your favorite salad toppings?

you’re right! how lucky that you have a personal chef 🙂 hehe
Mmm I love me a perfectly good pork loin! We had that for dinner one night this week! A salad potluck is a brilliant idea! Regular potlucks can be DANGEROUS! Fave salad toppings: eggs, shredded carrots. chicken, feta/goat/blue cheese, olives, banana peppers- OK so my list could go on and on 😉
You’re SO lucky that B takes such great care of you! I wish someone would organize a healthy salad potluck for us! All we ever have around work are sweets and snacks that aren’t good for us.
so amazing that B cooks for you! and you have some seriously healthy eats going on there, lady. nice job.
