What I Ate Wednesday: Minneapolis [With Nutritional Analysis]

 

WIAW

Today I am sharing a day of eats and exercise at my grandma’s house in Minneapolis, Minnesota. I was staying with her for just under a week in February, for my cousin’s wedding. This is a woman who once told me, totally seriously, “I don’t like vegetables.” So let’s check out a day at her house…

Breakfast: raisin bran crunch cereal with milk and strawberries. Not too bad, actually, although I never eat cereal at home.

Coffee too, of course, with half and half at grandma’s instead of my regular almond milk. Half & half does taste a lot better actually! I was ironically catching up on my textbook reading for the nutrition class I’m taking now. One of our assignments was to track and analyze a day of eating, so I included all that information at the end of this post. Here’s what my breakfast looked like in terms of calories:

BREAKFAST: avocado toast on Ezekial English muffin… I seriously ate this every morning for a week (with my coffee, of course).

LUNCH: best lunch lately was the yogi sandwich (I ordered it with bacon but it comes with sun-dried tomato hummus, carrots, cucumber, kale and sprouts) from Sprout near where I work.

SNACKS: potato chips, unfortunately. They taste so good but then afterwards I feel so crappy! I got these for free and after they were done, I did not buy more!

9 AM: Breakfast

Toasted half of a whole-wheat Ezekial English muffin, topped with a quarter of an avocado, fresh lemon juice, garlic powder, pink Himalayan sea salt, pepper and red pepper flakes. SO. GOOD. Not pictured: coffee with almond milk. This is such a good option for a vegan breakfast, by the way.

Here’s what I ate on Monday, my birthday.

Breakfast: leftover kim chee fried rice, topped with a fried egg. And coffee with almond milk, of course.

Lunch: I worked all day, so for lunch, I walked over to Jewel or Juice for a creamy kale smoothie (almond milk, banana, pineapple, kale, whey protein). I also brought a chocolate chocolate chip cookie from home, because it’s totally acceptable to eat a cookie for lunch on your birthday, right? It was from Momofuku Milk Bar (I brought it back with me from New York).

Snack: (not pictured) a handful of grapes after work. I walked over to HotYoga8, where they gave me 25% off the store for my birthday! So I treated myself to a funny yoga tee and fun Teeki pants. Can’t wait to wear these soon! Then I took a 90-minute Bikram class. It’s my fifth class this month (I signed up for a month of unlimited classes) and each time feels very different, even though the temperature and the postures are the same. I have mixed feelings on Bikram, which I plan to share soon in another post. My yoga style of choice is power yoga, but I wanted to mix it up this month, which is why I’ve taken Bikram classes lately. More on all this soon.

Dinner: After yoga, Kiyo picked me up and we went to Brew’d, a “craftpub,” for dinner. We were so hungry, we ordered poutine before we even got our water or drinks. They were pretty good, with cheddar cheese, beef, gravy and a fried egg. Not quite as good as poutine in Canada, but still we gobbled up the whole plate.

Happy WIAW!

We’ve had friends visiting since December 27, which is awesome although also exhausting because we’ve also been working our regular schedules. Here are a few things we’ve eaten this past week. Of course, I’ve been drinking my morning coffee with almond milk (here in my adorable new hand-painted mug I got from work for Christmas).

We’ve joked that we’ve only been eating either really healthy or really unhealthy meals. Here’s a healthy breakfast: acai bowl! With granola, berries, banana and honey.

Here’s one of our unhealthy (but so satisfying) breakfasts: loco moco with fried rice!

An unhealthy lunch: plate lunch at Keneke’s. I had the mini teriyaki chicken plate with rice and mac salad.
