Wow, it has been a while, hasn’t it?! I stopped doing WIAW for a few reasons – I didn’t like the inevitable comparison trap that comes along with posting a full day of eats, and frankly, since moving to university, my food looks gross. Like, every single meal. Nobody wants to see a picture of that! But because I
always occasionally browse through my photos and drool over my beautiful meals from the past, I decided to rejoin the world of What I Ate for a week.
Acai Bowl from Juice Generation in New York City. I’m pretty sure the price of a trip back there would be worth this breakfast, and that is not an exaggeration. I’m pretty sure I said “Oh my goodness this is so good” after every. single. bite. It’s a good thing I don’t live in the city or I would be broke from this place alone.
I also vividly remember this bowl of oats. I had just gotten back in from my longest run ever (at the time), an 8-miler. I did it in -15C and rode the elevator afterwards with a Credo regular, unable to move or speak. It was super classy. But I don’t think oats have ever tasted so delicious!
Lunch: Oh come on. Are you really surprised? If I had to choose one food from home that I miss the most, it would hands down be panini. There is just nothing that compares to those crispy grill lines & melted cheese… swoon. ❤ And yup! I’m getting cheesy about cheese. It happens. I think the one I’m craving most right now is hummus, avocado, turkey + cheddar. Dipped in salsa + tzatziki, obviously.
Dinner: I could most definitely put another panini here and be happy as a clam. Buuuut there are some other pretty freaking delicious foods out there that this university student has no access to. Case in point:
Nothing too fancy, though. Just a nutritious, home-cooked meal in the comfort of my own home. ❤
19+ in British Columbia. That is all I have to say about that. (Except for the fact that this was my first legal drink ever and it was a pretty phenomenal beverage on an absolutely perfect day.)
While we’re talking about my 18th birthday, we might as well remember this beauty. I didn’t tell the waitress it was my birthday until she saw me crying over my present, and then a few minutes later she turned up with this! Cheesecake for breakfast dessert? Don’t mind if I do!
What is the #1 thing you wish you were eating RIGHT THIS MINUTE?
