So… before I jump into yesterday’s eats let’s talk about the fact that I 100% think election day should be a holiday. I was entirely too focused consuming myself with the news and didn’t do a lick of one productive school thing. Or maybe that is because I am a complete journalism junkie? Yeah… that is probably it.
Anyways… On to what I ate during my own election day “holiday”.
Thanks Jenn for hosting What I Ate Wednesday!
I knew it was going to be a very long night (it was not nearly as long as I expected!) so I knew I needed to full properly in the morning and squeeze in a quick workout.
Breakfast 8 am:
After a morning run and walk, I fixed a quick bowl of oatmeal + a spoonful of almond butter + half a banana + handful of blueberries. Tastes just like a muffin!
Lunch 11:45 am:
Monday night I picked up a few things from Central Market to have on hand for the day.
Grilled chicken+ cranberries + quinoa + a little Kappa pasta salad bc I love it!
Anyone else love the sweet and salty combination of cranberries with meat or fish? I love it!
Snack (3:30 pm):
I had a ThinkThin bar for some major protein. I swear these things can keep me full for hours!
Dinner 5:30 pm:
Even though the pizza in the journalism school smelled fantastic, I knew that my stomach would probably not appreciate it too much and I did not want to be uncomfortable all night sitting at the anchor desk.
Salmon ceaser salad (also from Central Market… can you tell I love that place?).
Desert 8:30 pm:
I brought an apple + nutella just in case my stomach was grumbling… and it was.
No pictures of it though!
Overall, such a fun day! No matter what the outcome was or what your opinion is, we are all still Americans and I fully intend to support President Obama for another 4 years!!
Have a great day friends. Eat something yummy and healthy for me!
