My first(!!) What I Ate Wednesday

Lately, I have been craving peanut butter SO much. Like seriously, I eat it by the spoonful. I go through phases with my cravings, like one time I had like a 3 week span where I craved tortillas everyday (so weird), another time I craved eating frozen fruit every night which also lasted for a couple weeks, the same with Wheat bites cereal and countless others.

Enough about that, we have more important thing to do! It’s Wednesday! Wednesdays have always been my favorite day to read blogs. I seriously enjoy looking at what other people ate a little too much. Here goes my first WIAW:

Breakfast–a big bowl of Kashi original cereal and some All Bran cereal underneath (that you can’t see) with Almond Milk and a bowl of Fage Greek Yogurt.

Lunch— started off with a Red Delicious apple (my fave), cut into wedges using my nifty little gadget.Image

Then, I made myself a burrito on a whole wheat tortilla with Light Life Smart Ground Original Crumbles (a good option for protein if you’re a vegetarian, like me, or even if you’re not), swiss cheese, and some spinach.

Lunch also consisted a glass of sun tea (or two), and a large salad with tomatoes, lettuce, shredded carrots, garbanzo beans, walnuts, and some balsamic vinagrete to top it off. ImageImage

Afternoon Snack(s)– 

An orange and a couple spoonfuls of peanut butter. (told you!)Image

Dinner– was eaten super late (10:30 PM) because I went to go see the Hunger Games (finally!!!!) with a friend. It was so good, the movie and my dinner, that is 😉

This big bowl contained a pile of barley, Trader Joes’ Meatless Meatballs (I mashed them up and mixed them in), and a huge pile of stir-fry vegetables on top, which is pretty much all you can see in this picture.ImageHappy Wednesday, Everyone!!

Do you have any odd cravings? Do you let yourself give in to cravings?

5 reasons why I LOVE Summer…

This title of this post is actually kind of misleading. It makes it seem like summer is my favorite season, but it’s really not. I like cold weather (and because I live in Los Angeles cold weather to me is about 60 degrees). So here are a few reasons why I actually like summer:

1. I can mow the lawn in a bathing suit top and yoga shorts and not be questioned, because it’s so damn hot.

Image

2. I can make sun tea!!! Seriously, so good. and easy. Put a couple tea bags in a jug and let it sit in the sun for a few hours. Then, add ice and drink. If drinking sun tea doesn’t say summer to you, then I don’t know what does. (Now that I think about this, I really could make sun tea at pretty much any time of the year, but making it in the summer is the best).

3. I actually have time to read books that are not a Psychology, Philosophy, United States History, Art History, or Statistics text book.

I’m reading Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, in case you were wondering 😉

 

4. Going to the beach/Santa Monica Pier/Venice (Again, I could go to these places at any time of the year, but it’s better in the summer).

My Uncle & I on Thursday Night 

5. And my favoritefavoritefavorite thing about summer… is our annual, week-long family vacation to The Outerbanks in North Carolina (OBX!). My dad and his four siblings (and their families), which makes a grand total of 23 people(5 are the siblings, the other 5 are spouses, and the other 13 are the offspring aka my cousins, brother and I), rent a beach house. It’s pure insanity. but literally the best week ever. I’m not lying when I say that there is never a dull moment. Here is a picture from two years ago, of my 11 cousins, my brother and I. It’s two years old because and not everyone is in it because, as you can imagine, it is difficult to round up and get a picture of 23 people at once. Image

….and there you go. I’ve got to go because Harry Potter is calling my name.

What is YOUR favorite thing about summer?
