What I [Now] Eat Wednesday
I used to be the pickiest eater ever.
Breakfast was Cinnamon Toast Crunch. Lunch was Kraft Macaroni and Cheese. Dinner was (hopefully) pasta, with just a little bit of sauce, followed by a package of ritz crackers for a snack.
Uh, carbs much? But I didn’t care. Not to mention I was an active kid, who was always small for her age. Ah, how I’ll miss that metabolism 😉
That, my friends, is the face of a little carboholic.
I guess I’m still rocking the bangs.
Well I’m still loving CTC, but now it’s more of a “treat” than a breakfast food. And, well, you know how I feel about Kraft now. Pasta for dinner just doesn’t happen that often, unless it’s loaded with veggies. It made me realize that there are so many foods I used to hate, that now I can’t imagine living without. So I can’t imagine what WIAW would look like when I was young. Oh how things change.
I used to hate yogurt.
My mom begged me to eat it because it had calcium in it, and since I refused to drink milk (ok, some things never change) it seemed like a good source of calcium. Well it is. The difference is, now it’s hard for me to go a single day without yogurt! Hence, today’s breakfast.
I didn’t like almonds. Or cashews. Or nuts in general.
My dad used to always eat a handful of cashews when he came home from work. My mom was more of an almond girl. I liked neither. Yet today, I can’t go a day without nuts, normally in the form of nut butter!
I didn’t like anything new.
Now I’ll try anything (*with the exception of meat I suppose).
Chia seeds– check
Pluot– check!! (yes, its a plum and a apricot!)
Oh and I definitely wouldn’t have eaten a green smoothie
This was a banana, soy milk, ice, stevia and a large handful of spinach… topped with granola. Holy yum!
