Hey friends!

This is evidenced by what I wore to class, and what I wore to run:

What I wore to class today! 🙂

20120307-181322.jpg

It was an awesome run! Consecutive 15 sec neg split miles. I felt speedy. Wahooo!

Okay, so I understand you don’t come here to see my outfits on WIAW. So, onto the random eats of this week! I am seriously bad at documenting an entire day of eats, so this week I just took pictures of things that are often in my diet! Let’s go!

PS, to go with the theme, I mainly focused on veggie pics this week.

20120307-181528.jpg

A giant plate of grilled tofu, steamed broc, and sweet taters.

20120307-181334.jpg

Eggs and sauteed veggies. Simple and good.

20120307-181349.jpg

Steamed veggie sidedish, only to prove I do eat them without ketchup.. Sometimes.

20120307-181358.jpg

Green beans, melon bowl, and sauteed veggies on tuna. Typical first lunch.

20120307-181417.jpg

I eat grapes like nobody's business. This was full, and I downed it in 2 min. I usually bring these as snacks after class!

20120307-181435.jpg

Green beans and a veggie burger topped with cottage cheese and sauteed veggies. Another delicious first lunch!

20120307-181428.jpg

Sweet potatoes under greek yogurt, honey, and a lotta almond butter. A typical snack when the dining hall doesn't feed me properly.

20120307-181344.jpg

Greek yogurt mixed with pudding mix, topped with a lotta walnuts and almonds and coconut! Nighttime snack.

20120307-181339.jpg

No day is complete without chocolate.

Thanks to Jenn for hosting!

Also, thank you guys SO MUCH for the support on my last post. You guys are the best!

Just a heads up – because I’m going to be documenting my ultra training in my blog, I will be switching the name because my blog has changed focus to more running, less food. I will still be doing WIAW’s and posting recipes, I just don’t really feel like the name represents me anymore! More info on that later, but I hope you’ll still read!

Have an awesome week guys!

What was your best eat this past week?

WIA.. A lot of in February!

Hey friends!

It’s WIAW! The last in February. Happy Leap Day though!

I’m a bit late, but it’s because I have a ton of work to do.

Just FYI, these are NOT all of my eats for one day. This is a selection of eats from over the week.

Without further ado, the eats! This is what I ate a lot of in February. I tend to go into food obsessions.. Sooo, here we go.

oatmeal:

I ate a lot of oatmeal in February. Like, every morning and almost every night. CRAZINESS.

Chia oatmeal turned out to be my favourite recovery food!

20120229-201527.jpg

Some awesome mudslide oatmeal was how I got rid of chocolate cravings and fueled up for AM runs.

20120229-201600.jpg

My morning oatmeal was almost always eaten in class.

veggies:

I found new ways to include veggies in my diet!

20120229-201534.jpg

I found out that I love sauteed peppers and onions on tuna, with ketchup of course!

20120229-201555.jpg

20120229-201550.jpg

Broccoli WITHOUT KETCHUP. With Tamari instead! 🙂

20120229-201604.jpg

I hid some green beans under cantaloupe even!

snackage:

20120229-201539.jpg

Bananas and nut butter were a popular snack!

20120229-201545.jpg

On the go snacks were ESPECIALLY popular. Some cottage cheese and mashed taters, with sunflower seeds and almond butter.

20120229-201616.jpg

Cereal and granola was also a main staple of my snackage.

Another theme I noticed was that I seem to be loving on the nut butter. I hadn’t even noticed!

Hope you guys had an AWESOME Leap Day and have a great first day of March!

I have some fun things to tell you on Friday.. Mainly some goals that I decided on.

What were you obsessed with in February? Any new goals?

WIAW 9.. With lotsa veggies!

Hey friends!

Because of Jenn’s focus on loving your fruits and veggies this month, I took pictures of more food I’ve been noshing on recently..

Mostly, the veggies, which I realized I’m not getting enough of. Even though I’m a gluten free, lactose intolerant, gluten intolerant vegetarian. Something seems off, right?

Instead of eating veggies, I’ve been doing the normal college thing of eating lots of processed junk..

20120214-204616.jpg

A delicious, but not very nutritious assortment of GF/LF offerings. Those GF brownies are to die for, but the ingredient list is gross!

Aka mass amounts of gf cereal and bread substitutes. Sooo, I’ve been trying to eat a little bit cleaner. It’s made me feel a lot better!

I kinda forgot it was WIAW at some points, but here’s what I’ve been eating lately, with a focus on mah fruits and veggies!

rando eats from last week:

20120214-204643.jpg

Butterscotch oatmeal with sliced almonds that my mom sent me for Valentine's Day!

20120214-204622.jpg

Broccoli bed with sauteed onions and egg whites on top. Topped with Tamari!

20120214-204637.jpg

Giant salad with broccoli, sweet potatoes, cottage cheese, beets, and sauteed green beans and carrots.

lunch today:

20120214-204647.jpg

Canteloupe bowl, broccoli and cauliflower (with ketchup!) bowl, open faced tuna sammich and hardboiled eggs. I downed this in 10 min because I had a meeting. Unfortunate.

dinner today:

20120214-204654.jpg

Sneaky photography skills.. Salad with broc, sauteed zukes, sweet potatoes, and beets. Mustardy dressing.

snacks from today:

20120214-204700.jpg

Soy nut and granola trail mix.

20120214-204556.jpg

Cocoa truffle. Best way to end the night!

Thanks to Jenn for hosting, of course! Also, thanks for reminding me to eat my fruits and veggies. 🙂

How do you get your fruits and veggies in? Do you notice a difference with how you feel when you eat less processed stuff? What’s the best thing you ate recently?

Love your fruits and veggies, love yourself, and happy Valentine’s Day!
