What I Ate Tuesday [Breakfast for Dinner]
I was out of yogurt so I whipped up a quick smoothie for breakfast. It was delicious but I didn’t add much protein powder so it didn’t stick with me very long.
Ice, almond milk, stevia, banana, peanut butter, and vanilla protein powder. Tasty, but not filling enough.
Luckily work was pretty busy so I didn’t have too much time to spend wishing I’d packed a snack. However, once I got to the cafeteria I went a little crazy and got a little more food than I really needed.
It’s also unfortunately that I got some pretty un-photogenic food. It happens. (Fun fact: black bean hummus might be the least photogenic food ever.) This was tabbouleh salad with hummus and pita chips plus a side of chickpea and potato soup. I couldn’t even finish the soup because I was so full. Oops.
The afternoon was a whirlwind of meetings and snuggies. Yes snuggies, the blankets with sleeves. We all got a free snuggie yesterday so obviously it was a good day. After I wrapped up in my snuggie for a minute I pushed the candy cart around the office (not while wearing my snuggie) and settled in with a cup of gummy bears for myself. Yes I do live in a magical world full of rainbows and joy.
My friend Eric was in town for a quick visit so he and Alex and I stopped by the Betty on Davis for drinks. (You can read my full review of the Betty on Davis here. Hint: I love it.) The three of us split a carafe of red wine and Alex and I shared some hummus, veggies, & pita.
Yes I had more hummus. It was delicious.
We headed back home and had our small group over for dinner. We did a little breakfast for dinner thing with pancakes & breakfast foods! Chocolate chip pancakes are my favorite.
I had a couple of pancakes and a few strawberries. This day is a good example of how it is easy to load up on carbs carbs carbs as a vegetarian. Oops! But it certainly was a delicious day of eats. There’s always time for protein tomorrow!
What’s your favorite pancake add-in?
