So this should be called “When I Can’t Sleep” Wednesday because…it’s 4 AM and I’m still not asleep. What is the deal lately? Back to melatonin again…
This week’s eats were pretty bare bones. Being that it’s fall and
WIAW theme for this month is falling into new habits, I figured it’s only appropriate to note that I’m falling into more baking and proud of it. Or not…because we are onto a new theme…
I’ve also been food shopping a lot more and am back down to my original weight of 117. (and no for those of you who haven’t seen pictures of me- it’s not as skinny looking as it sounds) I wasn’t even looking to shave off those few pesky pounds I had gained because I hadn’t noticed until I put on a pair of jeans. The jeans fit snug but weren’t any cause to sound the “muffin top alarm”.
Guess what the weight gain was caused from? Well one, it was half muscle gain from running a shit TON over the summer. Two- my out to dinner days were becoming out to dinner WEEKS. I have since toned down the running.
I’m not complaining either way. Just goes to show when you cook your own food, you succeed. Remember labeling is deceiving and so are restaurants so ask, ask, ask when it comes to ordering a “healthy” dish!
On with the eats:
Let’s start off with some snackage…health food stores are pricey…but how can you deny this freshly made hummus and veggie platter? I actually watched them making it, so I knew every wholesome ingredient included.
Another snackage I’m currently digging…Lucy’s Chocolate Chip cookies. I’ll have you know I’m usually a soft cookie kind of person, but these were divine!
These were almost too cute to eat…but I was HANGRY so you know these didn’t sit for very long.
Oh and you knew this very orange momentwas coming, right? I am so sorry if you want to run anything pumpkin over, but it’s here to stay…at least until Christmas.
Oh and this orange bowl of yum. Pumpkin Cake Batter dip…yes this happened and yes I consumed it all in ONE sitting.
Here’s one for all you meat lovas out there…um yeah, my love for chicken has completely waned. I was kind of digging this ground meat though.
For this last one, there should be a herald of trumpets and fireworks. I try to keep my kombucha purchasing to a minimum, but this was a flavor to be reckoned with. OBSESSED (as usual).
What are you noshing on this week? Have you resisted purchasing Halloweenie treats yet? (Shockingly, I HAVE!) 🙂
Peace, love, and I NEED MORE SLEEP!
