I love Fridays. I often have quite a few meetings on Fridays which makes the day go by fast. Plus, it’s a day I know that even if I’m tired, I can almost always sleep in the next day, which helps me get through the day. No, it’s not Friday yet – sorry! BUT I am sharing with you my Friday eats for this week’s What I Ate Wednesday. And yes, it ended with ice cream 🙂 But it started with a run!
Friday morning started with a run with B. The weather was in the 60s when I woke up, and B had said he’d run with me the night before. So we started with 5 miles. Don’t worry – at 8 months pregnant, I stopped many many times.
I was starving for breakfast. I enjoyed a modified version of my overnight oats (no yogurt or nut butter on this version), with cinnamon and a banana. And then some fruit on the side – an orange and a mango.
For lunch, I had some leftover roasted veggies – cauliflower, zucchini and sweet potato, plus a few bites of avocado and a veggie burger.
Also had a bunch of cashews and a few almonds.
Snack time that afternoon meant some strawberry tea (from our Mexico City trip) and some granola/cashew clusters. Disclaimer – i had more than just these 5 bites.
B and I had a date night planned and we opted to go to a bar and watch the Cavs game. So we had the ultimate bar food – pizza and wings!
After dinner, we hit up a local ice cream joint.
i had vanilla peanut butter ice cream. And in full disclosure, I was SO stuffed I couldn’t really finish the whole cup.
And that was my Friday day/night eats.
Some questions for you:
- Are you more relaxed with your eating on Fridays than during the rest of the week?
- What’s your favorite pizza topping(s)?

Hmm… I would have to admit that I’m pretty relaxed almost every day about eating, but Sunday might be a little bit different. 🙂 And yes, ice cream is almost always included. Have you tried mochi ice cream?
I love mochi! it has been too long since I’ve had it though. YUM!
Date night WIN! Aren’t those granola nut clusters addictive? Super tasty.
Favorite pizza topping: Mushrooms. I don’t love them many other places but on pizza… always.
Ooh mushrooms! That sounds great. i love mushrooms – and all veggies – on pizza!
Man, I wholeheartedly miss buffalo wings, they were a childhood favourite. Props for being a badass running mama, so inspring, you look great!
I love buffalo wings!!! I had them in college all the time but notsomuch lately. Thanks for the kind words about my running – it’s getting hard 🙂
Uh, those cashew clusters look beyond amazing. I need them! (or, maybe not because I have no self-control!)
This is what Fridays are for! You are so close to the big day. So excited for you!
Any night when someone else does the cooking and cleanup are great! I am an black olive fan on pizza. I don’t really care for them any other time other than on pizza…weird I know 😉
