What I Ate Wednesday #4
Welcome to another What I Ate Wednesday.
I’ve been thinking a lot about my training as an artist (surprise! I have a Bachelor’s and a Master’s degree in fine art, which you can learn all about here ). For a long time I thought I was actually going to try to make my living as a conceptual artist but the deeper I got into the process, the more sad I felt. The networking, the social climbing, the general successs-based-on-who-you-know, it just didn’t sit right. I’ve felt really far away from the artist I once was, right up until recently. Suddenly, I’ve realized that my work with Super Strength Health needs more video content. So much of reclaiming body image and self- esteem is incredibly beautiful, and I want snippets of film in the world that show that, in the way I used to use my work to show the incredible pain of having an eating disorder. I have plans people, PLANS. Perhaps too many plans, really, but what can you do?
My wheels churned through these thoughts as I slurped up a green smoothie, which makes sense because staring into this thing is like staring into oblivion. What is the meaning of life? I asked my smoothie. “I dunno, dude, you tell me” it responded.
Smoothie was a blend of romaine, avocado, Vega One Vanilla Chai, banana, and a date. It was light, fluffy, and satisfying. Green smoothies, you are the best.
Lunch was some of that zucchini spaghetti and fake meatballs I told y’all about in my last post. This meal, my dudes! I have been super stoked in the kitchen lately, and I can’t tell you how much I enjoyed the contents of this plate. One of the greatest things about being a blogger and a cook is how incredibly well fed I am these days. For years (YEARS!) I ate the exact same things at the exact same time every single day. I owe it to myself and my readers to get a little more creative now, and that’s a responsibility I absolutely love. Did you make this recipe? Did you like it? Tell me all about it.
I’ve been on a taco kick lately! These ones were on sprouted corn tortillas, and filled with smoked jalapeno tofu, kale, red onion, salsa and baba ghannouge. It might have been the post-workout hunger talking but they were the best thing, ever, in all of life.
Please close your eyes and imagine the following snacks: banana + peanut butter and a handful of trailmix. My WIAW posts are all about my meals, and please don’t think you are viewing the entirety of my intake for the day. Because I know these posts can be platforms for people to compare their own meals to, I like to add in little words of discretion. This is what I ate, and what you ate is great too! Get inspired, but don’t feel the need to compare. You’re awesome.
Have a good day!
