Holy cow…I can’t believe another Wednesday has come and gone. There’s not enough hours in the day! My food/life choices have been VERY strange lately, an interesting mix of very healthy and very unhealthy. Today involved a lot more deep fried food than I care to remember…but also a jucie full of carrots and a long run in the morning. Welcome to my life. I’m workin’ on it.
Breakfast: banana, cinnamon raisin bagel, greek yogurt
Before my run I had half a banana and half a bagel. I love these bagels from TJ’s!
And when I got back from the gym I had the other half of the banana and a Fage yogurt (FULL FAT, baby! Don’t miss out on this one…the full fat greek yogurt is amazingly delicious).
Juice Time: 6 carrots, 2 peaches, chunk of fresh ginger root, slice of lemon
I had to go to a board meeting downtown which was really long and by the time I got home I was STARVING. I read that the nutrients in fresh juice are best absorbed on an empty stomach, so I have them in between meals now. This combo is deeeelicious.
Lunch: delicious, grease-laden mall food
My favorite little lady wanted to go to the mall and “hang out” (like any 9-year-old, naturally) so we spent a couple hours in the afternoon doing just that. This of course worked up an apetite.
We went to a Japanese place in the food court and ordered veggie lo mein, sweet and pungent chicken, teriyaki chicken, and spring rolls. Fried, fried, and more fried. At that point I was feeling glad I had that juice earlier.
(side note: those are both iPhone photos from my crappy iPhone 3G camera, but they look so nice all thanks to a new photo editing app that I’m loving called Camera+! life changing…)
Dinner: fried chicken, candied yams, collard greens, cornbread
The family was in the mood for soul food…errr…okay, I was in the mood for soul food. So I made a nice spread while my dad was out playing tennis with Jason and my little siblings.
It was awesome. It’s been way too long since I’ve made a meal like this!
It’s currently 1:30am. I’m supposedly waking up at 7:30am and won’t get home until 7:30pm. What is the world coming to??? Being a grown-up certainly has its downsides…but of course there are more upsides. Like being able to deep-fry your own food. Or buy carrots in 10 pound bags to make fresh juice.
Thanks for reading!
