WIAW #6: Yogurt and Peanut Butter and Ice Cream, Oh My!

WHAT-I-ATE-WEDNESDAY-NEW-BUTTON-PEAS-AND-CRAYONS

 

Welcome to another round of WIAW! I’m really getting into this habit and look forward to seeing what everyone over at Peas and Crayons is featuring for their eats. This morning’s November Project workout temporarily distracted me. I was loving the shout-out from Christopher MacDougall in the NY Times today…and then he showed up at our workout! Now that I’m home and showered and cozying up to a plate of pancakes, I have some major food photo drooling to do before I head to school. Without further ado, here’s a snapshot of my yesterday’s eats…

Breakfast: Coffee, yogurt, a Braeburn apple, and an egg and goat cheese wrap inside a Food for Life brown rice tortilla. I received a package courtesy of Food for Life, and I’m happy to report that they’re a great new discovery. I love the Trader Joe’s kind, but the nearest TJ’s is one block south of my apartment – and about 1.5 miles to the west! Sometimes I buy groceries there and walk across Central Park, but in future I can find these at the natural foods store around the corner. The trick is to warm one for a minute in a pan before wrapping around your favorite filling. Then they’re nice and chewy and don’t break like a lot of gluten-free wraps!

WIAW #5: Some Serious Salmon

WHAT-I-ATE-WEDNESDAY-NEW-BUTTON-PEAS-AND-CRAYONS

 

Welcome to another WIAW, with Jenn at Peas and Crayons! Below are my eats from Monday, when I ate salmon at three meals without any intentional planning (I also had a bunch of smoked salmon left over from the weekend). I do love salmon, so it isn’t a surprise. And it comes in so many delicious forms. This day featured smoked salmon at breakfast and lunch and a filet of fresh salmon at dinner, but might just as easily have included a salmon burger or sushi. I try to think about sustainability since I prefer wild-caught salmon, but hopefully I’m doing okay!

 

Breakfast: One of my smoked salmon scrambles stuffed into a gluten-free wrap, with cucumber slices on the side. I paired this with a cup of berries for a filling morning meal. I also snacked on two slices of Muenster cheese while I was making the scramble.

Morning snack: I grabbed two of my apple cinnamuffins and a smear of cream cheese to take to school, and munched on them around 11am while in class. I usually go for Greek yogurt or peanut butter on my muffins in a hurry, but the cream cheese paired nicely as well, especially with the cinnamon flavor. Kind of like cheesecake frosting!

The only thing that would have made it even more delicious was a dab of jam, because I love that combination – sadly, I did not have the means to cart a jar around in my purse, though I had picked up a jar of the Blueberry Jam at Le Pain when I was there for brunch last weekend.
