Sometimes I want to eat something different every day & nothing quite holds my attention for long. Other days/times, like recently, my mind is stuck on one food or meal and all I want is to eat that over & over & over again.
So, here I am, suck on repeat.
I captured my Monday eats. In the spirit of honesty, I decided to post them, despite Monday being nothing like I expected & nothing like normal. I usually don't attend too many meetings, but I ran to & from them all day. I'm usually eating every hour or so, but Monday I barely managed 3 meals.
Not even 9 am, in an act, just proving I hadn't had my coffee yet, I showed up to the wrong building for a meeting, making me 5 minutes late. Good one Jessie
Coffee, the few ounces that didn't spill as I ran to my meeting, was gulped down before I had to run back for my next meeting.
Instead of a meal, my pre-breakfast snack looked something like this. A peanut butter pretzel I stole from the Ugly Sweater party on Saturday. So good. Side note, recipe here. Go make these, they're delicious.
So I had my whole wheat spaghetti & meat sauce for elevensies (tell me someone knows this reference...) & while I usually manage to dump my food out of its Tupperware & onto a plate, that just didn't happen today either.
Lunch, if you can even call it that, was scarfed at 3:45-ish while I tried to listen in to a conference call & make meaningful comments in between bites. Oatmeal, with a scoop of Designer Whey chocolate protein, PB2, a TBS of mini chocolate chips & a sliced banana. Not pretty, but oh so delicious.
And dinner, finally, the only relaxed meal I had all day. I've been stuck with these salads on repeat.
Spring mix, cucumber, 2 hard boiled eggs, feta cheese, craisins, bacon bits & warm buffalo chicken. I top it all off with some garlic vinaigrette & a few shakes of garlic salt. YUM. I think I've had this combo every day for a week now, and I'm still going strong. It's what I'll likely have tomorrow too.
Most of the evening was spent watching Parenthood on Netflix. I'm a few years late to the party here. But such a good show. If you haven't watched it already, I definitely recommend. And my booze choice. Redd's Apple Ale. I'm not a beer drinker, because I find the taste to be revolting, but I love cider. This is a good in-betweener. And served at lots of bars too. So I've always got something I can order.
Any foods you're "stuck" on?
Do you go out to lunch most days or "brown bag" it?
