Today’s WIAW is filled with quick and simple eats that I have been making during these study days. Being at home can sometimes make healthy eating difficult. The snacks are right in the cabinet and eating is more fun than studying any day! But I don’t want to be snacking away all day, and missing out on filling, nutritious meals. One way I avoid this is by making a dish, then putting everything away before I start eating. It’s easy to keep snacking away when the jar of almond butter or the bag of chips is sitting on the counter.
^^Oats, almond milk, banana, cinnamon, and almond butter. The lazy girl’s bowl of oatmeal. I just let it all sit for a minute, to soften the oats, but I didn’t actually cook them. It’s too hot for that nonsense anyway!^^
^^For lunch, I made a big salad. Lettuce. tomatoes, shredded cheddar, hardboiled eggs, and chips + hummus on the side.^^
^^A little later, I grabbed some almond butter and dark chocolate for a snack.^^
The afternoon was spent studying. Then, I ran to the gym and did some weights, Arc, and stretching there. Then, my mom picked me up and we headed to dinner together. She was gone all weekend, so it was good to catch up.
^^We went to a little italian place for dinner. Salad, and gluten free penne with chicken, sundries tomatoes, spinach, and garlic. It was amazing!^^
The rest of the evening consisted of studying, studying, and a glass of white wine. Not too shabby for a Tuesday.
What did you eat this Wednesday?
How do you keep from snacking when you’re at home all day?
