After a long break filled with traveling, yoga, socializing, and lots of working out of coffee shops, I’m finally back on campus for the new semester. Five weeks of “vacation” can lead to the breaking of good habits and the forming of….well….the de-forming of routine. As a person who feels so grounded in routine, I was very happy to get back to it. And one of the best habits I set this fall was food prep! So today’s rendition of “What I Ate Wednesday” is actually “What I Prepped Wednesday.”
Sunday night I made lunches for the week (millet and kale), snacks (carrot sticks and raw walnut butter), juices (green!), and dinner fixin’s (roasted chickpeas).
I used my lower-cal almond butter recipe to make the walnut butter and just replaced almonds with walnuts (obvs).
(You may notice that those chicpeas are roasting in a convection oven. Here’s a story: when you are a single lady living on your own in the third most expensive city in the country, sometimes you have to rent apartments that don’t have ovens in them because that is all you can afford.

It felt great to chop and roast and juice and squeeze and stir. I felt centered and present.
Well….mostly present. I was watching this week’s SNL episode on my Roku….Drake was a wee bit distracting. <3
Hope you’re having a lovely week. xoxox
