Got a really ugly essay and an assignment out of the way this week.
Three more slightly less ugly but equally time-consuming essays due next week.
Then exams already? How does this happen?!
I’m sipping my third cup of coffee for the morning. I had intentions of doing some mad essay-writing this morning but I tossed, turned, stressed and dreamt of disturbing things all night so these earlyish hours have consisted of recovery via caffeine and picture sorting. Yet another long overdue week-long recap with few words is coming at ya. This will probably continue for the next couple weeks while school kicks my butt a little harder than necessary.
This week’s food in pictures:
April’s Halfway Oats. Added some jam, slightly too much therefore they were slightly too sweet but that’s besides the point. The method itself is pretty awesome.
Toasted egg white sandwich with roasted red pepper hummus and edamame spread. The wee piece of abj toast beside it was tossed since I somehow made it hard as rock. Boo.
Weetabix, yogurt, apple, clementine.
Coffee and Soup?
Naw. Coffee and OATS. Overnight oats with protein powder, banana, flax and clementine to be exact. Oh my daaaarling Clementine…
And this was this morning. Egg wrap with garlic hummus, salsa and spinach. My appetite has been wonky lately so my craving for this was slightly out of character.
Not quite so great at getting pictures of these…
Tuna mixed with FF sour cream, dijonnaise, BBQ
Squash salad with brocco, spinach, shrooms, salsa, honey mustard dressing.
Tofu wrap with hummus, spinach, dijonnaise
Gardenburgers (mmmmmmmmmmmm) with dijonnaise, laughing cow, lettuce and tomato on rye
Alongside a pizza sliver (or two…)
Sweet potato topped with refried beans, salsa, spinach and sour cream
Potato Leek Soup – We had leeks in our fridge for a while. I had never used leeks before. The only way I had ever heard of them being used was in a soup so I went scoring the net for a recipe. We only had chicken broth so my batch was definitely not vegan.
PB&J blended spinach oat bran ? This was last night. I told you my appetite was wonky. This was all I really wanted to I went with it. I didn’t finish it but it was pretty good. Definitely not thick enough though, it was like green soup after I blended it all up.
Many apples, dates, pb and coffee. Every day, often many times a day.
First try of the Tropical Fruit Larabar – I liked! Definitely wouldn’t be in my tops since I found the orange peel flavour a bit overpowering but at the same time it reminded me a bit of a creamsicle which is cool in my books. My personal version would bump up the coconut and pineapple and bump down the citrus and crumble factor a bit. Extra points to this flavour for the wrapper colour. I’m a sucker for neon colours, what can I say?
Mounds of egg whites on english muffin
Silken tofu blended with pumpkin, cinnamon, stevia and frozen mango.
Yogurt, frozen blueberries, wheat germ what what. Slob?
I hope everyone else is doing well. Blog reading bursts are keeping me somewhat sane in between school stuff. I can’t comment much right now but I’m still trying to read as often as I can.
And Happy Thanksgiving to all of you over there in the US! I celebrated my Canadian Thanksgiving a month ago so I won’t be suffering any turkey hangover this weekend but eat something extra pumpkin-y for me :)
