WIAW–School Day!

September 5, 2012

Hey everyone! I hope you’re all having a good week, only 4 days long!!! Lol okay, 3 for me, but I won’t rub that in. Anyway, since it’s Wednesday it’s clearly time for another What I Ate Wednesday! If you’re new to WIAW, head over to Peas and Crayons to find out what it’s all about!

Peas and Crayons

I started out my morning with quite a wake up call. I was laying in bed (I’d been up since like 4…) and at 6am my brother texted me asking if I had his car keys. Oops. I leapt out of bed, threw on my workout clothes and literally ran over to his apartment! My bad. Stealing car keys. Since I was up and ini my workout clothes I headed to the gym and started out with a little bit of elliptical action at the gym, some upper body weights and a few ab moves, and then plenty of stretching and rolling out my legs.

After I showered I ended up just reading and getting some work done. I we weirdly just not hungry this morning, but finally around 9:45 I was ready to eat! I had a sweet potato topped with an over-easy egg and the about a half a bag of spinach sautéed with nutritional yeast and some cayenne pepper. I served it with salsa!

I headed out the door to class after breakfast, getting there early so I could get a little reading in. By this time it had been a couple hours since breakfast but I couldn’t get lunch until after class, so I had an apple and a KIND bar. I also got a Kombucha, but never ended up drinking it…

For lunch I headed down to the French Market, which is near my school. It’s this really cool place that’s set up like an out-door market, except it’s indoor. There are places to buy fresh fruit and veggies, and then several specific vendors, from healthy juices and crepes to kosher food to Asian. I decided to try out Karen’s Raw, which I’ve seen all over Chicago. All of their food is soy-free and the woman working there showed me everything that was gluten free. She was so helpful! I chose the Sprouted Living Salad.

At first when I opened it up I was disappointed because it was basically a TON of spinach and a few veggie toppings, but once I added the dressing and the onion crisps topping, it was SOOO GOOD. Like really good. Unfortunately, tons of raw veggies don’t do wonders for my digestive system… Oops. So good though.

After lunch I headed back to school for my second (and last) class, and then hopped on a bus to get home. Luckily I got right onto an express bus so it took less time! Haha so like 40 minutes instead of 60. By the time I got home my stomach felt kind of off, so I just wanted something bland. I made a quesadilla with cheese and black beans, served with a little more salsa.

A bit later I had some vanilla protein ice cream with “chocolate sauce” made from protein powder and cocoa, with some dried fruit and corn flakes cereal for toppings. Delicious! I also had a some almond butter as well, so good.

Well, there you have it! My Tuesday eats! Nothing too thrilling this week!

 

Have you ever eaten at a raw restaurant or specifically raw food?

Ever stolen someone’s car keys?

    haha i’m so glad your brother realized you had his keys! i probably would have panicked and assumed i’d lost them somewhere and spent hours searching the last few places i’ve been. of course the reason i would assume that is because i am constantly leaving my keys places so it wouldn’t be out of the norm for me to have lost them 🙂
