Happy Wednesday! I’m glad we’re halfway through the week because the weekend can’t come soon enough…
I’ve had a lot of good eats recently, so I’m excited to share a whole day’s worth of some yummys! For my last WIAW, I shared a day that was less structured. Meaning, I didn’t have work that day, so I got to eat most of my meals at home/with others.
This week’s eats are a little different. They involve a day where I’m commuting into and out of the city, and spend most of my day at the office. I’m kind of a fan of my packed lunches that I bring with me to work. I hate packing them, but then I’m always happy when I have a meal ready and I don’t have to buy my meals (because that gets expensive really fast…)
Without further ado, WIAW Packed Lunch Edition!
My day started around 7:15. I’m usually a frenzied mess in the morning, but the idea of skipping breakfast is entirely ludicrous to me. Like, how could I not eat a nourishing meal that makes me tummy happy? I digress… Today was an oatmeal day! Oatmeal is one of my all-time favorite breakfasts. This oatmeal was cooked in the microwave (because it’s quick and less dishes #priorities), but I cooked it in milk and stirred cocoa powder in so it was lovely and creamy and chocolatey. Topped with PB and strawberries! Water, coffee, and OJ on the side!
I mentioned this in my Top 3 Friday post last week, but I got a free donut!!! I wasn’t particularly hungry (I’d just finished breakfast after all) but I snatched it up to snack on later. This maple and bacon donut was the perfect mid-morning snack with a cup of coffee!
Lunch was around 1PM (actually my favorite time to eat lunch!). I was very proud of myself for packing a lunch. I’d cooked a bunch of lentils, so I made an impromptu lentil salad the night before with some veggies and a lemon olive oil vinagrette, and I was very pleased with how it turned out! Crackers, hummus, and an apple on the side! I got to eat outside too, which works wonders for my mind!
Snacktime was mid-afternoon. I’m a big fan of sweet potatoes, so when my coworker told me there were some sweet potato chips around, I was all about it. My tummy thanked me too. Note that I was half done before I remembered to take a pic! I had some sparkling water which was nice and refreshing too!
Dinner was around 7:30 after I got home from work. My lovely mom made a delicious home-cooked meal of pot roast and carrots, and my sister whipped up some lovely mashed potatoes. Comfort food at its finest!
Aaaannnddd that’s about it! I finished up the evening with some reading and Netflix before crashing to get some rest before I had to be back at it for work the next day!
Busy and tiring day, but the good eats definitely brightened it up a bit!
Have a wonderful Wednesday, friends!
