{food} Green Things I’m Loving Lately

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.

I always wonder – is this time (early-mid fall) everyone’s favorite time of year, or does everyone love the month after their birthday the best? Maybe there is some memory hidden away of our first month of life, and forever after that month will always be our favorite time of year? (I was born in the middle of September.)

Anyway, here are some green things I (was) loving lately.

In August New York was hot, hot, hot. Hot weather makes me crave green: green smoothies, green juices, and fresh green veggies. Here are some favorites that I tried in August.

{WIAW} What I Ate Wednesday @ Moustache

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)

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).

i planned on supplementing this with some kind of snack, and this is what i got…
