This WIAW is all about keeping my eats simple during summer in the city. It’s a little early in the season for some of my favorites, and I only get to enjoy the grill when I’m at home on weekends, but even on a summer night in New York City, I can still whip up a satisfying and summery meal. Without heating up my apartment too much!
Breakfast at the office was a Siggi’s plain yogurt with peanut butter, two Apple Cinnamon Flax Muffin Bites with more peanut butter, and an apple.
Lunch brought with it a chicken burger and homemade sweet potato fries. I also had some baby carrots and a few slices of cheese. It’s been tough to find a lunch for work that doesn’t have me snacking through the morning beforehand or the afternoon once I’m finished, because the easiest thing is to pack a salad. I’m hoping that trying to do a quinoa or potato-based bowl could help, especially as marathon training gets underway. Anyway, I ate this meal for dinner the night before and brought my leftovers (the photo is from dinner because it’s prettier than a sad desk lunchbox 🙂 )
In the snack department, the afternoon sent a pear, a package of turkey jerky, and two peanut butter cookie Larabars down the hatchet. I know by the end of marathon training I’ll be sick of the few Larabar flavors I can eat, but they’re good in a pinch when I need a portable snack.
For dinner, I broiled a piece of wild sockeye salmon and sauteed some spinach with pecorino romano cheese. The same kind of cheese I sprinkled on the burger. I’ve been having cheese cravings lately.
And for dessert, ice cream – a cherry vanilla sundae with sprinkles.
