It is Wednesday, so I’m going to link up with Jenn for What I Ate Wednesday (WIAW), and share some of my latest meals ‘n’ things. Word has it you guys like seeing pictures of food, so let’s get to it!
This week’s edition of WIAW is Back to School themed, since today is my last first day of classes! (Whaaaaaat!)
On Monday night I went to a spin class with Hadley, and afterwards grabbed dinner from Olives. I ordered a Thai kale chicken salad with soy vinaigrette. There were tons of toppings, including water chestnuts, edamame, and cashews. Gotta love flavourful plentiful salads!
Olives is a huge student favourite at Princeton, mostly because it offers sandwiches, salads, and hot entrees that can be customized and adapted however you want. Plus, the staff is super friendly, and will remember you, so it really feels like a family environment.
Breakfast yesterday was peach overnight oats, made with frozen peaches, Chobani 0% Plain yogurt, rolled oats, skim milk, chia seeds, cashews, and cinnamon chia flax blend.
The cinnamon flavour is good, but I really want to try their Apple Pie flavour because I have a feeling it would be right up my alley.
Last night’s dinner was grilled eggplant topped with a roasted tomato sauce, and salmon with a bernaise sauce that I scraped off. Creamy sauces on fish just aren’t my thing.
This morning I made myself a chocolate banana protein smoothie with the following ingredients:
- 0% Plain Chobani Greek Yogurt
- 1 banana
- 1 spoonful Spectrum Organics coconut and cocoa chia flax blend
- skim milk
- 1 large scoop Vega chocolate protein powder
And now I’m currently sipping an iced Americano while blogging from Small World, a local coffee shop just off campus.
Yumz yumz yumz.
It’s been forever since I’ve been to yoga, so today at noon I’m going to go to a vinyasa yoga class! I’m stoked to see if my new pushup ability will translate to a better chaturanga. Here’s hoping!
I’m also teaching two 30 minute spin classes tonight, which I’m pretty excited about. I haven’t taught all summer, which was a nice break, but I’m ready to put some of the tips I picked up from other instructors into my own routine!
Have you ever tried Paleokrunch granola?
What’s new for you this September? Starting classes, a new job, or anything?
