Good morning, friends!
We are officially half way through the week, and on Wednesdays, we talk about food.
What I Ate
I got around to breakfast a couple of hours after I woke up and immediately started working on the computer. I usually don’t wait that long to eat, but it was worth it.
Scott cut up the fruit haul in our fridge and made a big bowl of fruit salad. I poured some over a serving of plain Greek yogurt and went to town around 9:30 a.m.!
Plain Green yogurt, nectarines, blueberries, grapes, raspberries, strawberries, blackberries, and cherries
I dropped Scott off at work, then came back home and enforced a serious lock down at the computer throughout the morning. Before I knew it, it was time to get ready for work at the gym a few blinks later. Unlike a couple days ago, I made sure to get a substantial lunch before I left this time!
Fiber tortilla smeared in roasted red pepper hummus with spinach & arugula mix, tomatoes, red and green peppers, avocado, and a garden veggie burger
That held me over through a few appointments, but my appetite came right back on my break around 2:30 p.m. Snack time!
(Leftover) red and green peppers and unsalted almonds with roasted red pepper hummus
Yes, I dipped the almonds in the hummus, too. It was so good!
I worked on an article for the gym, planned a few workouts, and typed up my afternoon blog post with another snack on the side.
Coffee with leftover fruit salad
I’ve been really good at cutting out any additional coffee (after my morning cup) throughout my days lately, but I just… needed it. I was dragging!
I wrapped things up on the computer two hours later, and had just enough time to fit in my own workout before my next client. It was short and not-so sweet. I finished up my last appointment of the day around 6 p.m. and got out the door by 6:30 to drive over to Downtown Rochester for a dinner date!
I met a friend from our small group, Christine, for dinner at Rojo. It was Taco Tuesday, so of course I had to partake.
Shrimp Diabla tacos on corn tortillas with a side of unpictured salsa
…. and basically an entire basket of unpictured corn chips…
We had a great chat and ended our night around 8 p.m. I was tempted to stop into the cupcake shop close by before heading home, but I didn’t. Instant regret.
Instead, we closed out our night by watching the NBA Playoffs. Or, Scott watched the Western Conference Finals while I caught up on more work on the computer. It’s fine.
I broke for home-popped popcorn around 11 and called it a night soon after.
Cheddar seasonings and all, yes sir.
It was a great little Tuesday!

Please note: What I Ate Wednesday features an entire day of my unfiltered eats. In no way do I change what I eat just for the sake of documenting it.While I try to be mindful with portions, I don’t count calories. I do, however, take into account how much activity I am going to be doing that day, and I plan my meals and snacks accordingly.
Question of the Morning
• Have you ever popped (and seasoned) you’re own popcorn on the stove?
It’s becoming a weekly tradition in our home. So good!
Happy Hump Day!
