I’ve done a semi terrible job of documenting my food for the past two days. I don’t remember half the stuff I ate. Here’s what I DO remember.
Lunch: Didn’t really exist. It was more a series of random snacks throughout the afternoon. Gotta love the busy school day. Meh. I had an apple at one point. And half of this at another.
I’m still not a complete Larabar convert (I hate that these are so tiny), but this flavour was up there. Might be the best I’ve tried yet. Not that I’ve tried that many but still. It took a few bites before I decided I was a decently big fan though. Acquired taste? I dunno.
There was more snacking later on.
Then some Dinner.
Tortellini with shrimp and feta, some leftover chicken, and cauliflower with buffalo + queso on top. I always eat my cauliflower topped with weird things. It’s such a versatile food.
I had quite a bit more tortellini than what’s on my plate. Pasta is always tastier straight from the pot. At least from my pots.
Then I went out for a friend’s birthday. We hit up three different places, starting at a country karaoke bar (with some terrible singers and lineups that were much too long just to get some drinks), then moved on to an Irish pub (which was pretty chillin), then finished off at the club I frequent too much. I ended up drinking a lot more than I intended just because we were bebopping around everywhere so I ended up getting drinks at each place, but because they were spread out over the course of the night, I didn’t have any issues in terms of feeling like I’d had too much or feeling rough in the morning. My biggest problem with the night though was when I arrived home and proceeded to empty the kitchen of all of its food. I should not be allowed near kitchens after drinking. I wasn’t even hungry. And nothing I ate tasted overly great. I could hardly taste it at all to be honest. I think liquor temporarily disables taste buds. But yeah, that happened and I regretted it this morning.
Which is probably why I ended up having a terrible snacking day today where I kept track of nearly NONE of what I ate. I was going to try to skip breakfast because frankly, my middle of the night eating binge was the equivalent of about two breakfasts, but after chugging much water and coffee, the stomach wanted eats. I just finished up some container ends (cottage cheese and yogurt) and had some sour cream banana bread from the freezer that I defrosted last night during my great eating scandal.
At the mall I finally “splurged” on some good quality Clinique foundation. My entire makeup career has been based solely around drugstore brands so to go to an actual makeup counter and get something that was specifically matched to my skin tone and that cost at least double what I normally pay was a whole new experience.
I also really wanted to find a new fall coat since I don’t really have one and don’t want to freeze in the coming weeks as the temperature continues to drop. But I found nothing. Then again I got discouraged pretty quickly and didn’t look for very long in very many stores. So I might have missed my perfect one. Then AGAIN, I hate buying jackets at the stores in the mall here because there aren’t that many malls around here and aren’t that many stores in this one, so if you buy a jacket at one of them, you’re almost guaranteed to see people all over the city walking around in the same one. I hate that. So I might have to do some deeper jacket searching elsewhere. I hate shopping sometimes.
Dinner involved egg whites in a pita with spinach, salsa and the last of the nutritional yeast queso. This was deelish. There was also a few pieces of leftover tortellini to complement this meal. Some of them were eaten cold straight from their leftover container. Because that’s how I eat pretty much everything. Seriously, plates and I just don’t get along that well.
This was good but I was still hungry. Smoothie time.
Vanilla protein powder, light vanilla soy milk, frozen raspberries, frozen mango, Pineapple Green Tea Yogurt (New flavour find today! What?! Obviously I had to try it. You can definitely taste the green tea. It’s pretty awesome).
I also just had a coffee/light hot chocolate drink. It was good. I still feel kinda hungry. The never-ending appetite continues.
Have a good weekend!
