What I Ate Wednesday
I had a nice day of eating Wednesday. This is happening more and more! I used to struggle a lot with how much I ate – I would eat too little, or too much, or overeat at night and feel sick – but lately I have been in a pretty good place with my eating habits. I still have days where I “feel fat” or feel the need to check myself in the mirror (to make sure I haven’t sprouted an extra head? who knows – how much can really change in a day) – but most of the time I am very much OK with myself as I am. I think it just comes with practice, like anything else.
Enough chit-chat, here is what I had:
- Cinnamon walnut bread (from the CSA) toast with butter; 2 slices of salami (Costco, heh); coffee of course; a calcium chew (Adora dark chocolate)

b and i had the pleasure of trying soft serve fruit a few nights ago for dessert. i have actually had it before, but when soft serve fruit contacted me and asked if i’d like some cards for samples… of course i said yes! i already knew i liked it.
what is soft serve fruit?
>> it’s a healthified soft serve ice cream made of fruit, water, and organic cane sugar. it’s vegan and kosher. the small cup has less than 90 calories.
we were on the upper east side for some reason (new apartment stuff? i don’t remember), so we went to the location at east 78th st and 3rd ave. after tasting the banana, mango, and raspberry, we settled on a banana sundae…
topped with sliced almonds, crushed walnuts, and pomegranate seeds.

today i woke up around 9, laid in bed for a while, then started work in the kitchen. this week b and i got an order from the fruit guys (i wanted to try them out; i want to join a csa but they don’t run in the winter) so i decided to use up that produce. we got (this was the “regional fruit & veggie”):
- 4 beets
- bunch of spinach
- yellow fingerling potatoes (a bunch of small ones)
- 4 apples (different kinds)
i made a frittata and a “breakfast bar”-type thing. i’ll post recipes separately. the delivery is free; the box was $26. it’s definitely overpriced but it was convenient. i’m not sure if i’ll order it again.
