I haven’t spent more than 5 minutes in the kitchen over the last few days. After the weekend in DC, Alex’s sister and her boyfriend came to Richmond, and we’ve been out and about in the evenings. I’m not complaining, and I’ve actually been able to make some fairly healthy choices, making me feel just fine about it. After the weekend, my body was craving fruits and veggies, so it’s been easy to find ways to satisfy those cravings!
So here’s a little What I Ate Wednesday – Out & About recap.
For breakfast, I’ve still been craving yogurt. I filled a bowl with vanilla Greek yogurt, blueberries, and some Special K protein cereal. The cereal added a nice crunch and a bonus kick of protein. This bowl kept me pretty full until lunch time.
For lunch, I was supposed to go out with my brother and his wife, but my brother wasn’t feeling well so we rescheduled. Since I already had my heart set on Which Wich, Kate joined me and I satisfied my sandwich craving.
If you have Which Wich in your area, I highly recommend it! It’s like a much more delicious version of Subway. They have tons of great vegetarian options, and it’s pretty quick to get in and out. I ordered a sandwich and added lots of veggies (and feta of course) and Kate and I shared some Sun Chips. It completely hit the spot, and I wasn’t hungry again until dinner! Normally I need an afternoon snack, but this lunch really kept me full and happy. I guess that’s what happens when you listen to your cravings.
When dinner rolled around, I went the Tobacco Company with Alex, Nicole and David. We ordered a bunch of appetizers and I had lots of hummus + pita and some fried yellow tomatoes.
It was enjoyed with a few drinks, and lots of laughter. The best kind of dinner, of course. Then naturally, we had to follow dinner with a little Sweet Frog. Obviously. (If you come visit Richmond, fro-yo is necessary.)
I’m looking forward to getting back into cooking, but I definitely enjoyed all of these meals out!
