Happy Wednesday! How is everyone’s week going? After today’s Ochem midterm, I finally have a chance to catch my breath before finals! But seriously, I am more than ready for spring break! But first, a huge thank you to Jenn for getting us all together in the food world for What I Ate Wednesday!
My morning started out with a 4 mile tempo run-easy pace with a mile at 5k pace. My legs were definitely dragging. I think it’s from all the heavy squats from the night before! My pace was definitely slower during the non-tempo portion of the run, and my legs were done at the end! Soreness finally started coming in after the run! Before my run, I had a Thinkthin bar. After, I headed to the dining hall for breakfast.
I had plain Greek yogurt with melon on top (not my favorite yogurt topping, but it was what they had!), and some puffed wheat cereal that I brought in a little baggie. I like the cereal because it has no sugar and gives the yogurt bowl some nice crunch! Plus some coffee with milk on the side. Sadly, this isn’t the most colorful picture, but I don’t have a lot of fruit (color!) choices in the dining hall!
By the time lunch rolled around, I was starving, likely thanks to a Ochem test! I was very excited for my lunch. This is college dining at it’s finest. A cheap and lazy version of my California Chop Salad. I used the same dressing recipe. The chicken leftover from what I thawed for Monday’s lunch, I had a jar of olives in the fridge, and I had shredded swiss/gruyere. The salad originally calls for gouda, but I had no clue how to shred cheese without a shredder, and the swiss/gruyere blend was pre-shredded. The dressing is the same though! I grabbed a giant bag of lettuce and tomato from the dining hall the night before.
A nearly tupperware free meal! It’s so hard to eat giant salads out of tupperware because none of them are big enough! I shook up everything in the bag, and then poured it into the bowl.
My overflowing bowl! I had to eat the top off before I could even see all the good stuff!
My afternoon snack consisted of a pumpkin spice granola bar and lots of dark chocolate. I’m glad 85% chocolate is back in my life. It’s pretty low sugar and it definitely gets rid of any chocolate cravings!
After Crossfit, it was dinnertime! Nothing looked that exciting, so I went for a prepared Asian salad (the prepared salads taste like nothing…), kabocha, and some type of tomato/eggplant mix with cheese. I’ve never had kabocha squash not from the dining hall, but when I’ve had it here I haven’t really liked it. Is it supposed to be so dry?? Also not sure why I got eggplant since I don’t normally like it, but I lucked out and enjoyed this!
I was still a bit hungry, so I got a small bowl of plain Greek yogurt with granola.
Also-don’t forget to enter my Quest bar giveaway! I’ll be picking a winner on Sunday night!
