Let’s talk about social media for a minute. Do you have a favorite site to browse to look at other people’s updates and pictures? Facebook? Instagram? Twitter? Pinterest? Snapchat? Periscope? Dare I say, Google Plus?
I’ve got to admit, even though I’m a blogger and should be crazy about all forms of digital communication, I’m slow to the game when it comes a couple of them. I’ve tried to get into Snapchat and am just not feeling it … and no, I haven’t even downloaded Periscope. I’m so behind.
That being said, I do love me some Instagram. In fact, I check it several times a day to make sure I don’t miss anything. What would I miss? Oh I don’t know, someone’s well-styled lunch picture or a someone’s 400th sweaty selfie of the week. The good stuff.
No point to make here other than I don’t think we all need to feel compelled to be “all over” every single social site. Use the ones that are effective for your business or are most enjoyable to you personally. That’s that. Now, let’s talk about food …
This week’s “What I Ate Wednesday” recap
Every Wednesday is a great chance to look at food pictures — real food pictures — featuring mostly healthy meals. Here we go …
Today, I’m sharing everything that I ate on Sunday, a rest day, featuring no workouts and lunch out-and-about.
After a one-month hiatus, overnight oats have made it back into my regular breakfast rotation. This bowl is a mixture of Greek yogurt, oats, chia seeds, almond milk and pumpkin pie spice, all cooled in the fridge overnight. In the morning, I top it with a banana and cinnamon, then I eat it with some hot peppermint green tea, sweetened with stevia and almond milk.
Mid-morning snack at 11:30 a.m.
This $3 bottle of pulpy coconut water purchased at the Ferry Building in San Francisco may have been pricey, but all those sweet and fresh chunks in the liquid made it seem like a snack. An easily portable one, which was perfect for walking along the Embarcadero with Dave.
Lunch at 2 p.m.
I can’t say enough good things about this beautiful thing right there. It’s a beet burger, wrapped in collard greens, surrounded by sprouts, lettuce and dressing, which I purchased from the organic, vegan-friendly Seed + Salt restaurant in the Marina neighborhood. While this sandwich was super messy, it was divine. Un-pictured is a little side of pickles, which I had as well as a Pellegrino to hydrate.
Afternoon tea at 5 p.m.
Un-pictured is another mug of hot green tea, sweetened with stevia and vanilla almond milk, which I enjoyed while sitting on the couch and working on my blog post for Monday.
Dinner at 8 p.m.
Over the past month, I’ve gotten into eating steak every week or so. I didn’t necessarily avoid it before, but for many years, I just always chose salmon. Well, let me tell you, a juicy New York strip is a delicious thing. Especially when enjoyed alongside two glasses of red wine and some roasted broccoli. Perfect and simple dinner.
And for a tiny dessert, I had an un-pictured coconut-covered date and a mug of warm vanilla almond milk for a little sweet taste.
And that’s all she wrote. Have a lovely day, my friends!
