Happy WIAW… birthday edition!
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.
