I wrote this post a long time ago but never got around to posting. However, I do want to share all these goodies, so I will post it now, even though it’s no longer August and it’s no longer hot here in NYC. It’s actually the perfect weather. Late September through October is my favorite time of year.

to continue the meal of the day theme, i’m doing my first what i ate wednesday.
breakfast was oatmeal + fruit (melon and grapefruit) + cinnamon from my work cafeteria. i’d say it’s a good 1 cup of oatmeal (cooked) and another cup of fruit. i get this most mornings if i don’t have yogurt + fruit.
for lunch i brought yogurt + banana, and baby carrots + halal dip (the dip that comes with street meat – if you’ve never had it, oh my gosh you are missing out – the best one is on 53rd and 6th ave).
