Good morning and happy  What I Ate Wednesday. How’s your week going? First off, wow—somehow I’ve posted 250 of these. That is just ridiculous.

Anyway. For those of you who enjoyed a long weekend, I hope it was restful and restorative. Working in healthcare, I honestly cannot remember the last time I had MLK day off, but I hear it’s really nice. That said, I honestly don’t mind working a weekend at the hospital when I’m able to balance it out with some down-time during the week. I’ve been completely sucking at that recently, but I swear I’m working on it. Sometimes that can be as little as applying some essential oil or painting my toenails or reading a trashy magazine in bed or stepping away from my computer to eat. I also am a big fan of yoga classes as “me” time. Those little bits of self-care go a long way.

For this week’s “What I Ate”-style post, I thought I’d share what I had on Sunday. I’ll be honest that it was kind of a stressful day, but I went to a relaxing yoga class after work and made myself a nice (but so easy) dinner.

Breakfast: It was a savory oats kind of weekend. This is the basic recipe I use, but I’ve been playing around with cooking in whatever greens or other veggies are on their last legs. It’s awesome with tahini on top.

Bedtime snack: I’ve been really enjoying sliced banana with peanut butter or PB2 sauce lately before bed.
