Some days I just don’t feel like embracing my inner food voyeur by sharing what I’ve eaten recently (it gets kind of boring since I eat a lot of the same things week to week, not to mention my appetite today was all but nonexistent). Even so, I do enjoy participating in the lovely Jen’s What I Ate Wednesday link-up party.
I always bring my lunch to work (except on rare occasions), whether it’s sandwiches, the previous night’s dinner, or restaurant leftovers. I find it silly that people would actually make fun of those who do “brown-bag it.”
This makes me sad! I think the program has cut too many calories instead of focusing on healthy fats, proteins, and other macronutrients. Sure, greasy hamburgers and fries aren’t the best choice, but kids need more than a salad, an apple, and a few ounces of protein/fat to make it through classes and after-school activities.
Makes sense to me. Yet another reason to avoid antibiotics when possible—and continue eating/drinking probiotic-laden Greek yogurt and fermented foods/drinks like kombucha!
And a few recipes I want to try:
As soon as I have time, I’m making these for work breakfasts. I love polenta, but I’ve always eaten it creamy like grits. Portable polenta is now officially a thing.
No-bake. Almond. Fudge. What better things could there be? Now I just need to buy some crispy rice cereal and I’m set. Thank you, Mom, for the giant jar of almond butter.
After waxing poetic about millet recently, I feel I need to bring this pseudo-grain (it’s actually a seed) back into my life soon. What better way to do so than trying this fresh, summery salad? Pesto makes everything better.
Say what?!! Just thinking about this pizza makes me all giddy. Much like pesto, caramelized onions or shallots make everything better—and blueberries? This is too much, and I want to gorge myself on the whole thing (and basically anything this woman creates in her kitchen).
I think I’ll stop now since my appetite so magically seems to have returned. Happy Hump Day!
