I always say I can’t believe it’s Wednesday already, but this week, I’m actually surprised it’s only Wednesday—and a What I Ate Wednesday at that. To what other bloggers have on their plate, visit Jenn’s blog, Peas & Crayons.

Another Wednesday, another blog post. I started off my morning with a quick breakfast while I caught up on emails, and then a hot yoga class. It felt so good on such a dreary morning.

Until my classes in the afternoon and evening, I stuck close to home (though I did stop by Trader Joe’s finally, which I’ve been meaning to do for weeks) and got some work and school stuff done. I’m in that part of the semester where I seem to have either an exam or a project due every week. I’m also in a wedding this weekend, so I wanted to get a jump on a paper and some other things around the house.

I ended up with a 45-minute break between classes tonight, so I treated myself to a cappuccino at a nearby coffee shop. I read through some stuff for class and let my mind wander in my journal for a few minutes (yes, I still carry a journal in my purse). I’m not gonna lie—it felt great to put on my headphones and tune out the world and its to-do lists for a little while. For whatever reason, rainy days make me want to listen to the Pixies and Neil Young—the albums Bossanova and After the Gold Rush, specifically, which makes for a sort of weird mix, but it was exactly what I was in the mood for.

Most of my meals were pretty quick to assemble, since I had a lot of leftovers to work with. Wednesdays are all about staying well-fueled and alert while keeping my tastebuds happy.

Breakfast: Oatmeal with ground flax, lots of cinnamon, and a chopped plum; topped with sunflower seed butter

Lunch: Veggie burger on toast with a roasted eggplant and roasted pepper; leftover roasted cauliflower and sautéed cabbage

Snack: What’s become my pre-class standard of plain yogurt with puffins and some fruit. Frozen berries this time

Emergency Cappuccino:

Dinner: A plate of leftover veggies, a sweet potato with goat cheese, and a Trader Joe’s Vegetable Masala Burger

Snack: Sliced banana with PB

Ugly but good
