Yesterday was the coldest morning of winter. The two minutes I spent running to and from the gym chilled me to the bone. When I walked to work at 8:30, it was -20 degrees. I did not take a picture of the temperature, because everyone else in Ithaca did and Instagrammed it. I was actually happy to be working and have things to keep my moving and warm. It would have been miserable to sit inside cold all day.
I did however, remember to take a few pictures of what I noshed on. It’s really fun to take pictures now because my phone camera is so good. I don’t know how I survived [first world problems]. Oh wait, I just took pictures with horrible lighting and it was fine. I digress.
Breakfast: The last of my green superfood cereal [I bought this is July…and just finished it. It tastes good, but I never want too much of it. Today, I just dived in and finished the 1.5 cups that were left.] topped with banana and blueberries
Lunch: A Panini style wrap enclosing a veggie burger, Daiya mozzarella cheese, sprouts, spinach and sautéed onions. A vegetable barley soup on the side.
Dinner: Fiesta red rice with two black bean cakes. I also ate some [unpictured] chips with mango and pineapple salsa. I liked the salsa a lot, but after a couple bites, it didn’t pair so well with this meal…another day!
Meal 4: I always think this is too big to be called a snack. An opal apple [my new fave!], a Clif Builder’s Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Bar and some Brazil Nuts.
Those were my eats on the coldest morning of the year!
What is your favorite apple? Favorite salsa?
What do you eat when it’s cold?
