Good morning, coffee beans!
In typical hummus fashion, I was running out the door for my first morning nutrition appointment so I only had to time to make one piece of strawberry avocado toast (which ended up being ok because I had a hugh jass dinner the night before and I wasn’t super hungry). The toast which is basically bread with mashed avocado, sliced strawberries, coconut flakes, local honey, and a dash of sea salt. It’s a best seller at Alchemy and I’ve been making it more lately at home!
Intuitive eating doesn’t always mean eating more–it means honoring your hunger and fullness cues, no matter how big or small. Sometimes I wake up like a hunger beast craving monstrous breakfast sandwiches (and lately waffles!) and sometimes avocado toast or a smoothie suffices for me.
I sipped on all the coffee on the way in.
When I got to Alchemy our local farmer had some homemade buckeyes to try which you KNOW I was all over. S’good!
Lunch was my favorite leftover Chipotle Chili with Sweet Potatoes and Brussels Sprouts and a few bites from a delish pretzel tasting we had for the new happy hour menu at TRISM.
Snackage included this yummy new trail mix I picked up at Costco.
I went to the gym around 6pm for a Synergy class. Afterwards I hung around Alchemy for a while (it’s right downstairs) and dug into a Quinoa & Kale Salad + our soup of the day which was a fab pumpkin curry.
I hopped back on my computer when I got home to knock out more work and write some thank you notes while I sipped on gingerbread tea.
Jeff got home around 9:30pm and I enjoyed a little fourth meal of sorts which was leftover penne with vodka sauce (SOOOOO good), roasted garlic artisan bread, and salad he made. The only thing I changed about the pasta recipe was accidentally using 16 ounces of pasta rather than 12.
It felt warm and fuzzy that I chose the white bread option that I really wanted versus the whole wheat one just because it’s healthier. I really wanted a hearty, crusty baguette and it was perfection straight from the oven with buttah.
I stayed up till 11ish watching Larry David and finishing up some work. I got a hankering for something sweet before bed so I snacked on a dried apricots plus mini chocolate chips. Full and happy!
