Alright, so I caved in. Just this once. I believe in giving (most) things a try at least once just to see the results and reevaluate.
Hence, this week I’m doing a “What I Ate Wednesday” Post (though I actually ate this stuff on Sunday). I’m usually against posting my entire day’s eats because I don’t want people making assumptions or comparisons, but whatever…I might have had a self made protein monster of a salad for lunch but believe me on those days my dinner and dessert more than make up for it.
I am not…how you say…a skimpy eater in the least.
Peas & Crayons patented What I Ate Wednesday
Yeah, I’m a super patriotic Finn: How you liking the matching Marimekko bowls and one of my many Iitala coffee mugs?Self-explanatory breakfast staples. The 2% Greek and Kefir change depending on which brand is on sale- the fruit changes as well depending on the season and how few berries are left in the fridgeIt’s nothing fancy. And takes on average four minutes to put together. I usually race the coffeemaker to have it finished BEFORE the Cuisinart beep goes offLUNCH:A combination of leftovers to create a Hugh Jass salad: Organic herb mix, roma tomato, Whole Foods antipasti (balsamic cippolini onions, marinated mushrooms, sundried tomatoes, roasted garlic), balsamic rosemary grilled chicken, LOTS of artichokes and mushrooms, lemon juice, chili flakes, olive oil, balsamic, garlic aioli mustard sauceI only eat salads if they’re BEASTLY. And I know there is no bread or whatnot but they only bread in my fridge is pita bread and I don’t think you understand how much of that I already consume.
Headed over to Fairfax for some Indian food at Cafe Lotus with Marta…yup I never get sick of Desi food:Chicken Harbara: Boneless tandoori-grilled chicken with cilantro-mint chutney, sizzling onions, and capsicumChicken Tikka Masala: Saucy and spicyRaita (thinned yoghurt) with the delicious pungent flavour of cumin seeds and shredded cucumbers. Reminded me of the raita in IndiaGarlic Naan: Eat some or stay away…no seriously, I’m not jokingButtered roti!
Yeah I ate half of everything pictured above…except the raita, I ate all of that because we all know how obsessed I am with yoghurt. Oh, but I didn’t eat the capsicum in the Chicken Harbara because I’m allergic and that may have been an unpleasant experience. Cafe Lotus is delicious though, and some of the best (and most authentic Indian food in Marin for sure)
And of course, since my birthday was just this past Friday, this is a consistent dessert theme for the entire week (and until the last of it has been consumed by yours truly):My mama’s chocolate oreo cheesecake with a side of Fage and berries for an added zing of creaminess (and some protein to make this a very wholesome fourth meal)!
