I never expected my spring list of five of my favorite gluten free Costco finds to turn out to be one of the most popular thus far. I guess a lot of other gluten free foodies are eager to find fun new foods or stand-by staples! I’ve found a few more myself since that post was published, so I’m sharing five gluten free Costco finds today that have been especially tasty this summer. (I scheduled this post before my trip, so if you’re following along with that know I will be back recapping tomorrow with tips for running in London!)
Welcome back to What I Ate Wednesday! I know I missed last week – it was actually the first Wednesday I hadn’t posted since March, which is crazy. The fact that I’ve been blogging for almost 8 months and doing WIAW for 5 is unbelievable. You know what else is hard to believe? Last Wednesday I was sitting in Day 2 of the bar exam, and now I am free 🙂 So without further ado, yesterday’s eats await…
Welcome to another WIAW. It was muggy and rainy, so I took it as a sign I needed a rest day, and focused on food instead. And Sasha, and studying (*cough* maybe not enough *cough*). I mean, it took Sasha awhile to want to come inside after her morning walk, my only exercise. We barely beat a big storm into the house! Afterwards, there were a lot of sweets to beat the heat, starting with a breakfast treat.
Rabbit, rabbit. Okay now, welcome to the first WIAW of July! Studying for the bar means less time for kitchen creativity. But I still managed to squeeze in lots of summery eats to say farewell to June yesterday and usher in July, from salads to seafood to a scrumptious sundae. My day began with a pre-run snack, which was relatively small. Just a muffin and some blueberries with half a mug of Green Mountain Blueberry coffee. I was only planning to run 5-6 miles and wanted to get out the door. Usually I’d skip the snack for a morning like this, but for some reason I woke up with my stomach growling and knew it wouldn’t be a good idea.
Welcome to another WIAW! Let’s dive right into my day of eats. Yesterday ended up being a rest day, so I took a short stroll over to Oren’s Coffee Roasters around 7:30am to grab an iced coffee before making breakfast. I had a Cookie Dough Oatmeal Cake and some fresh strawberries to tide me over before heading to an 8am doctor’s appointment near my apartment in NYC, and then hopping on a 10am train home to Connecticut. I squeezed in some studying by flipping through flashcards on the train…all it did was make me realize how hungry I was getting! Even though I didn’t run yesterday, I’ve realized I do need to eat just as frequently on rest days because I am so active overall. I didn’t pack a train snack though, so I had to wait until I got home.
Happy Monday, everyone! It’s time to send some weekly workouts + updates your way. As of yesterday, it is officially summer. For me that means studying for the bar, yes, but also means that in just over a month, the bar exam will be over and I’ll have some late summer travel time that I’m really looking forward to. What makes it feel the most like summer though, is the knowledge that this is my last June when “school’s out” – at least when it’s me that is the one in school! My diploma arrived last week, making it all feel very official. Even though my high school Latin hasn’t stuck with me long enough, they even sent along a translation 🙂
