WIAW #65

More hot days and long runs, more easy summer eats to refuel in this WIAW. Yesterday after my morning 5 miles, I refueled with a cup of coffee and a goat milk yogurt at my apartment before heading to work and digging into my real breakfast.

WIAW #64: Wedding Eats

This WIAW covers a Saturday that began with post run brunch in New York City and ended at a wedding with perhaps the most food I’ve ever seen in one room. Unfortunately I was too busy to get many photos, but I hope my description does it justice! Anyway, brunch was two gluten free waffles along with a spinach and Cheddar cheese omelet.

WIAW #63

This WIAW is all about some eats from Fourth of July weekend. I didn’t photograph a full day on any one day, so it’s a bit of a grab bag – all delicious. I started most of the days with a pre run snack of a Larabar and apple, then moved on to a post run brunch of 4-5 scrambled eggs with turkey or ham and cheese and slices off a loaf of Le Pain Quotidien’s gluten free seeded bread.

WIAW #62

This week’s WIAW features my usual weekend eats when I’m spending a summer weekend at my parents’ house in Connecticut, as I did this past weekend. It’s typically an apple and peanut butter, an apple and homemade muffin, or apple and Larabar before my Saturday long run. Usually in the summer I will eat a lighter snack because the heat makes it harder for me to digest before getting out there, but as I get into marathon training I’m trying to figure out the right balance of fueling well without it feeling like too much. This time it was half an apple and two Apple Cinnamon Flax Muffin Bites with peanut butter.

WIAW #61: Simple Summer Eats

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!

WIAW #60: Early Summer Weekend Eats

This WIAW I’m featuring eats from a weekend at my parents’ house in Connecticut, filled to the brim with early summer eats. It isn’t quite the season yet for my favorite wild raspberries or plump peaches, but the first slices of watermelon have been consumed and the grill put into use! Things kicked off about 45 minutes before my long run Saturday, I had a Granny Smith apple with some peanut butter. Ended up finishing the jar, too.

WIAW #59: Eggs Your Way

This WIAW showcases three meals revolving around eggs. It’s no secret that I eat a lot of eggs, whipped into omelets or scrambles, baked into frittatas, boiled and sliced on a salad, or topping a breakfast bowl. I eat them for breakfast, brunch, and brinner, and consider them one of the most versatile options for anyone, because you can make eggs your way anytime of day and never lack for variety. First up on Sunday was breakfast at a diner en route back to New York City from a wedding weekend, when I had a turkey, Swiss, and spinach omelet with buttered gluten free toast.

WIAW #58: Eat Your Meat and Greens

This WIAW, I’m sharing some meals that are pretty typical for me, as well as a dinner that showcases some newer food choices. The greens are nothing new, but since my elimination diet and subsequent step back from grains like oats and rice (and attempt to cut down on dairy, which sometimes works better than others) I’ve started eating some things that I haven’t touched since I was in preschool, if ever. I went from eating just fish and poultry to incorporating duck on occasion when I was in college in England. I threw pork/ham back into the mix last year, because as my dad says, it’s “the other white meat”. And very recently, I’ve dipped a toe in the waters of “real meat” which you’ll see if you read all the way through this day’s dinner…

WIAW # 57: Cook It In A Pan

You may have seen these recent eats on Instagram, but in all the time it took to recap my Maine adventures, I didn’t get around to sharing my eats for the past two weeks. This WIAW for a Wednesday back in NYC is the time to fix that! Breakfast was a one pan scramble with three eggs, Swiss cheese, sautéed spinach, spinach and garlic chicken sausage, and a slice of Udi’s gluten free toast. I don’t eat “gluten free” foods very much but my dad bought a loaf of Udi’s on sale at Costco and gave it to me so I’ve been enjoying a slice with breakfast or brinner for the past week.

WIAW #56: Home for a Saturday

In this WIAW, I’m showcasing my eats from a Saturday that included a short morning run, one of my closest friends’ bridal showers, and dinner at my family’s house in Connecticut. About 45 minutes before my run, I had a mug of warm lemon water and an apple with peanut butter.
