Happy Hump Day! Once again, I’ve chosen to document eats from a Friday for my WIAW post. However, this isn’t a typical Friday since it didn’t involve homemade pizza and beer. WIAW has gone green for March, but I’m pretty sure that I have every color of the rainbow represented in my food here.
That’s a protein muffin made with peanut & coconut flour with a mixture of Greek yogurt, peanut flour & cinnamon and (melted) frozen wild blueberries sandwiched in between. Yeah- it was good.
Before that, I downed my usual, extra creamy post-workout smoothie (with extra spinach!).
I also had a cup of the world’s best coffee.
I had the rest of the morning off and no clients scheduled until the afternoon, so I decided to do some housework. I got hungry later in the morning, and instead of my usual habit of going into the pantry and grabbing a handful (or two) of whatever I saw (thank you, hypnosis!), I had a carrot.
Undressed carrots are the best- right Sarah?
I also had a few forkfuls of this new discovery that happens to be made locally!
This is, hands down, the best sauerkraut I’ve ever had! If you live in Frederick, you can buy it at Common Market. They have four different flavors!
When if finally was time for lunch a little later on, I whipped up a few ZBC cakes, which were served on top of salad greens along with some Ezekiel flax toast.
I also roasted the little bit of butternut squash that I had left.
I love to roast it with a little bit of cinnamon and sea salt sprinkled on top. It tastes buttery and delicious every time!
I headed out the door again in the afternoon for a couple hours of training clients, and brought this snack with me for the car:
Have you had that brand/flavor of kombucha? It’s wonderful!
I got back home around 4:30 and we had dinner plans with our friends Mic and Brie at 7:00. I grabbed a little snack of some pumpkin puree mixed with cinnamon and TVP to tide me over.
Dinner was at my favorite vegan restaurant- (you guessed it!) Great Sage. It probably seems like I go there a lot, right? I’d probably go even more if it was closer, but it takes about 45 minutes to get there. Totally worth the drive though!
The four of us got some appetizers to start:
Hummus, raw spring rolls and the chickpea and baby greens salad.
The only problem with The Great Sage is that it’s very difficult to choose what to order! I had a pretty good idea of what I wanted to get, but was stuck between the Green Lentil and Butternut Squash Burger and the Indian Red Curry.
I ended up getting the burger (sans bun) with rutabaga fries. I had it back in October when it was new on the menu and have been dreaming about it ever since!
It was just as delicious as I remembered- and huge! I got to take half of it home to have for lunch the next day.
Dessert followed, which was the special of the day.
Greg had the cocktail listed right above, which was also delicious.
Total water count for the day: 115 oz! I don’t have a screen shot of it, so you’ll just have to trust me.
Oh! And guess what I didn’t have all day….? 10 days clean, baby!
Have a great day!
