WIAW: Oats, Fruit, Soup & Vodka Sodas
Happy WIAW folks. In the internet world, Wednesdays are a day to post all of the food you eat in one day online. I’m not sure why people are so interested in a day’s worth of eats, but hey, I ain’t complaining. I love sharing the meals I eat because I think that it shows that living a gluten-free vegan lifestyle can be easy, cheap, and delicious! I think there are so many misconceptions about eating healthy, let alone a gluten free-vegan diet.
Thanks to Jen over at Peas & Crayons for starting this whole internet food party.
Breakfast: 7:00 a.m. I got up at 6:30 to study for a bit before my 8 a.m. class. I had some oats with bananas (2), coconut sugar, unsweetened shredded coconut, cinnamon & flax for breakfast. Would you expect anything else from me??
Then, I had class from 8-9. On Tuesdays, I have a break from class from 9-12 which is amazing because last semester we never had any breaks from class. We had class basically every day from 8-4/5 so it is quite refreshing to have a break. Lets be honest though- the main reason that i love having this break is because it lets me workout in the morning! I am definitely a morning workout person so I love when I am able to get a workout in earlier in the day.
I went for a 6.5 mile run at 9, and then studied for a bit before my next class at noon. I ate 1/2 of a cantaloupe and an apple pear while studying.
Not pictured: I also brought a huge bag of baby carrots with homemade guacamole to my class at noon to snack on during class.
After I got finished with class at around 4 p.m., I made some air-popped popcorn. I ate about 3x this amount (okay maybe about 5x this amount) of popcorn and sprinkled in with sea salt. Usually if I have olive oil spray, I will spray a bit on my popcorn to get the sea salt to stick.
For dinner i had my favorite soup of the moment with some homemade oil-free tortilla chips! You can find the recipe for this delicious Mexican Crock Pot Soup right HERE! I made the soup on Sunday in my crock pot, and have been enjoying it all week for dinner/ lunch. i love how quick and easy it is to just put in a pot on the stovetop and warm up. I have dinner ready in 5 minutes which is awesome for when you are virtually always starving like me!
And that was everything that I ate for the day. Usually I would eat a night snack, but I was out at a campus bar celebrating one of my classmates birthdays. I limited myself to 1 drink- which of course was a vodka soda, and came home and slept like a baby.
Come on y’all – you know I like to hear your thoughts. What is your drink of choice/ what do you think it says about you? What is your favorite meal to eat as leftovers? Do you like the hybrid fruits like apple pears, grapples, etc.? What is the most popcorn you have ever eaten in one sitting ??
Signing off for the night
