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!
I’ve shared the depths of my runger on this blog many times, first in a WIAW last July and most recently in one featuring my New York City Half Marathon weekend eats. Today’s WIAW is from another rungry Sunday, this past one, when I ran the MORE Women’s Half Marathon and subsequently was so demanding where food and drink were concerned that I thought my boyfriend was going to lose it. Luckily, he’s a trooper and puts up with me and my runger 🙂
Happy Wednesday! As usual, I’m sharing a day of eats with you all, although this is a snapshot of last Friday rather than the usual Tuesday, since my first week of work has been all about orientation with no time for food photography – yet! I’m still eating a bit differently to figure out what’s disagreeing with my tummy, as I was last week, mostly free from (cow’s) dairy and grains. Which doesn’t mean I can’t still eat delicious meals, like this simple but tasty breakfast of a turkey and spinach omelet with a baked sweet potato.
Today we’re taking a little break from the plethora of pumpkin on here to focus on another member of autumn’s star produce ensemble. That’s right, the apple. The apple is one of my favorite foods. I eat at least the one a day recommended to keep the doctor away year-round, and in the colder months I often have two or three because they’re in season in the Northeast and most other fruits, like berries, melon, peaches and plums, are not (and are thus ridiculously expensive unless you buy them frozen). There’s no better autumn activity than apple picking, and other than munching on all the crisp, sweet, juicy fruit you fetch from the trees, a girl’s got to whip up some apple-licious treats with all the bounty.
