WIAW

It’s What I Ate Wednesday: FINALS WEEK EDITION!

I put no effort at all into breakfast. I stuffed an apple and a Clif C bar into my system so that my stomach wouldn’t rumble while I attempted to kill the last of my take-home finals. Don’t judge me for it.

I didn’t even bother to take a picture. I’m a bad blogger. Don’t judge me.

I took a 45 minute break to bike to Whole Foods so that I would actually have something fresh in my poor refrigerator. I ended up nearly forgetting to buy fresh vegetables in the midst of coconut milk ice cream and the ingredients for a recipe that was cookin’ up in my head. Don’t judge.

When I got home, I skipped over the veggies I had just bought and microwaved TJ’s dairy free enchiladas, which I mindlessly topped with some tofu for extra protein. Don’t judge me.

Despite having no energy to prepare myself a proper lunch, I spent 40 minutes cooking up my first original snack bar instead of studying for finals. I have no regrets. (and don’t judge!)

Behold: Coconut-Chai Crispy Rice and Seed Bars

Sweet lord of snacks, these are delicious! The recipe will be up when I have another spare moment (read: tomorrow while I’m avoiding my impending doom via finals)

At around seven, I was feeling completely overwhelmed after studying for six hours straight, so I let myself take another break to go to the gym. Great decision! I was able to get in 4.2 miles, a bit of strength training, and an amazingly relaxing stretch session.

Dinner was a quick massaged kale salad with carrots and tahini dressing + more tofu. (I usually don’t eat much tofu/soy, but I picked up an unreasonably-sized block and need to finish it before I go home for a few days after finals [!!!])

And, of course, I topped it all off with [too much of] the ever-distracting coconut milk ice cream (of the no sugar added mint chip variety, which is perfectly sweet with crunchy ribbons of chocolatey goodness)

  1. >Don't worry about being judged. We all have those days (or weeks…)I'm excited to check back for that Coconut-Chai bar recipe! I love chai-spiced ANYTHING, and after successful Chai Granola and Chai-Spiced Sponge Cake recipes, I'm about to reveal the ultimate…Chai (Nut) Tea Butter! Yum yum yum. :)
