Happy What I Ate Wednesday. How’s your week going? Things have been nuts over here, between writing deadlines, a packed schedule and hectic happenings at the hospital, and other manner of crazy (Hello, Mercury Retrograde), but I’m still taking a quick break to pop in for the weekly WIAW link-up. To get myself into a more relaxed mindset (hah!), I thougt I’d post last Thursday’s meals and snacks.

Last Thursday, I worked from home and decided to start my day with a long stroll through the park and took my time getting into the to-do list. I hardly ever make the time for that kind of thing (I’m more the roll out of bed and hit the gym before it’s light out kinda person), and I am so glad I did! I also met up with a friend for lunch, which was a nice break in the day. I even took the time to test out a new dessert recipe that night.

So yeah. Nice mini-break sort of. For the “what I ate” part…

Breakfast: Savory oatmeal enjoyed after a long walk in the park

Lunch: I met a girlfriend for lunch at Uncle Nick’s in Hells Kitchen—it was the perfect way to take a break in my day. My $10 lunch special of Greek salad with chicken came with a much-needed cup of coffee.

Snack: Yogurt with cocoa powder, coconut flour, and strawberries

Dinner: A big salad topped with a veggie burger. Not sure why I’ve been craving this lately, but it was exactly what I wanted.

Snack: A strawberry crisp—recipe coming soon! PS—I finally learned the difference between a crisp and a crumble.
