road rage wednesday

October 17, 2012

Is it seriously Wednesday already? I feel like it was just a few days ago I was typing up my last WIAW post. I’m attempting to watch my Wednesday night line up while typing this, so it might not make much sense — The Middle is too good to pass up!

Spooky Snacks and Healthy Halloween Treats

I don’t know about you guys, but I have been SO hungry this week. Like, scrounging through my desk after lunch and wishing for about five afternoon snacks instead of one. I’ve been running more than I have in the last oooh 10 months, so maybe that has something to do with it! I need to start learning to pack more food. I forgot how hungry running can make you!

And I am pretty sure I’m going to turn into a piece of chocolate — OBSESSED with anything chocolatey right now.

lunch

loaded cabbage soup
udi’s gf roll with earth balance
black bean salsa

snack

almonds
kind bar

On the way home, I kind of had a ridiculous road rage experience. It was raining outside and I think people thought it was like blizzarding outside. It took me over an hour when it should have taken me 20 minutes from where I was at. Ugh. Seriously.

dinner

1 cup cooked brown rice
1/2 cup kidney beans
1/2 avocado
sautéed kale
2 tbsp. garlic hummus
nutritional yeast

snack

Enjoy your night! I’m spending mine not moving from the couch except to get more food. It’s a beautiful life.

-I said the same thing this morning, that I couldn’t believe it was Wednesday already!
-I’ve never tried a Kind bar but I don’t know how I wouldn’t like a bar that’s ‘dark chocolate cherry cashew’–yum!

I had public transportation rage today on the “L” on my way home. I LOVE that I can take public transportation but about every 6-8 weeks everyone else on the “L” seems to partner together to be incredibly STUPID! People should learn how to control umbrellas!

Living in Oregon it is absolutely INSANE how people freak out when it rains. Every time it’s like it’s the very first time it’s ever happened. “What is this water substance coming forth from the sky? Is this the end of the world? I should go 10mph in a 55 because I am so confused!!!”

My sentiments exactly.

Adding a fruit to lunch or snack might help with the hunger — carbs + fibre = satisfied belly!!
I’m all about the chocolate right now, and candy corn, and I’m also feeling hungrier than usual. Oh, and after running practice tonight, I’m not moving except for more eats either! So essentially, I’m in agreement all around!

Yeeeah that would have been helpful! ;) And my lunch didn’t have too much protein!

Seriously, I’m with you on the chocolate thing. I’ve gotten into the habit of eating a square (or 4) after lunch every day. I was never into it this much before though. Must mean I’m getting older.

Love your recipes. Can you explain nutrional yeast- what are its benefits? Do you try to have it daily?

I’m in the same boat as you. Chocolate cravings all day! Need to be strong:)
How are you liking the coconut french vanilla creamer?

Heck yes, Pier 1!! :) I got it a few years ago – I love my little monkey!

And I’m really liking the french vanilla creamer! It’s yummy!

Yummy oat combination, they look lovely and creamy. Such a big fan of adding in Sunwarrior!

You and me both! I realized I still had a half of a bag that expires at the end of the month. Gotta use it up!

I agree with you, running makes me ravenous! Yummy looking eats!

Ugh I had a similar driving experience yesterday! The traffic in my city is horrendous at rush hour, so it took me like 30 minutes to get somewhere that usually takes me 10. Good thing I left early otherwise I would have been late!

Also I’m loving your dinner. Rice + beans + greens + hummus is one of my favourite lazy meals to make!

I loved the combo you posted with the egg/hummus/avocado – yum! I love it when the avocado gets melty!

omg I hate when that happens… Fridays are usually the worst commute home for me, seems like every Jersey person gets out of work early lol (I live in NY lol)

I hate getting stuck in traffic and it’s 5 million times worse if I’m hungry.
I love The Middle, it’s hilarious!
