WIAW: Tunes & Food

August 12, 2015

Welcome to my second installment of WIAW! I knew today (Tuesday, for me) was going to be a good one when my 5:30 am Pure Barre class was blasting a killer playlist.

Don’t get me wrong – the music is always spot on – but today’s playlist included not one, but TWO Ellie Goulding remixes (Beating Heart and Burn), as well as the song Smoke Signals by Sean Kingston.

Please, judge me.

Breakfast:

After getting ready, I had overnight oats in an almost empty Trader Joe’s almond butter jar waiting for me. Today’s toppings included raspberries, cacao nibs, and a little bit more almond butter because there wasn’t enough left in the jar for my tastes 😉 This is the best almond butter on the planet and you best believe I already had a fresh one waiting to be opened when this one was finished.

Mid-Morning Snack:

Sugar snap peas and a hard boiled egg while working away at my desk.

Side note- I was jamming out to the Grease soundtrack all morning in my headphones. These songs never fail to put me in a good mood, and opens the flood gates to so many memories from college. During rush, my sorority always put on a Grease-themed skit, so every time I hear Summer Nights or You’re The One That I Want, I am immediately taken back to those fun, exciting days getting ready for recruitment.

(To all my AXO’s – RIP skit round and GOOD LUCK with recruitment starting today!)

Lunch:

Today’s packed lunch featured my Greek Inspired Quinoa Salad, leftover sweet potato wedges from last night’s dinner, and a peach for some sweetness. No sad desk lunches here!

Afternoon Snackage:

Goji berries and almonds at work. I cannot get enough goji berries lately! They’re the perfect combo of chewy, tart, and sweet.

A few sweet potato tortilla chips and a brown rice cake with hummus before cooking dinner. These were an impulse buy a few weeks ago and have been a hit! They go perfectly with hummus, salsa, or on their own.

Dinner:

I got a little crazy in the kitchen tonight and experimented with a new-to-me veggie – eggplant! I had never cooked the purple veg before so I was excited to give it a go. The result were little eggplant “pizzas” topped with a mixture of tomato sauce, tempeh, spinach, red onion, and sun-dried tomato. Served with some crispy garlic green beans on the side, and topped it all off with nutritional yeast post-photo.

Two massive thumbs up!

Night snack:

A spoonful of Honey Sunflower Butter sent over from the wonderful people at Wild Friends!! I love their sunflower butters so it felt like Christmas morning opening the package and finding this.

Side note – the spoonful was definitely eaten pre-photo. The day that this is my definition of “spoonful” will be a very sad day. 🙂

XO – Bailee
