I had a really good day yesterday – for no real reason. Well, it could have been runner’s high from the fantastic run I had that morning. Or the gorgeous Swedish sun. Doesn’t matter – I’ll take a smiley day any day.
I also managed to get just about *all* my eats captured on camera yesterday as well! So, another ‘real’ what I ate Wednesday for you, brought to you by Jenn.
Iced coffee with soy milk and 1/2 banana. And lots of water. I can eat this about 45 minutes before a run, and have no stomach issues during.
The plan was for a speedy 3 miles – but look what happened! Actually I picked a trail I didn’t know, and it took me further than I had intended. It was a gorgeous sunny day and I was feeling good and strong – so it didn’t matter.
Green smoothie refuel! Protein powder, the other half of the banana, the last of the strawberries (sad day), frozen spinach, water, and a bit of soy yogurt. Strawberry banana yum!
I was feeling good with the eats as well. Smörgås (swedish word for open sandwich, traditionally on this rye bread) and salad! Sandwich had hummus, avocado mash, spices and hard-boiled egg. Devoured. Salad had mâche lettuce, cucumber, tomato, sprouts, and mint-lime dressing.
Plus one of these sesame cookies and a square of dark chocolate for dessert.
Pink lady apple, another h.b. egg, almonds and sesame cookies – packed up for school!
I mean, who wouldn’t have a good day if this is what you see when walking to class. Yes, I took this with my phone – instagram! (no filter)
Recycled photo – but I’m in love with these bars. I think I like them better than Larabars! But they’re not cheap, so this was a special treat. Another foodie thing I will miss when I leave Europe. (instagram photo!)
(I was super starving by the time it was time to make dinner, so I snacked on some cherry tomatoes and hummus while cooking)
Healthy spanish fried ‘rice’ dish thingy. Those are actually wheat berries, not rice! I got a block of “rosso” (spanish spiced) tofu on sale, so I stir fried it with some begins, wheat berries and 1 egg. It turned out quite a bit better than I expected.
After dinner I had a scoop of PB and another little square of chocolate to satisfy my sweet tooth. Then, a lovely cup of peppermint tea before bed.
Do you ever have really good days, just because?
