How do you guys feel at the end of a school year? For me, as finals get closer and closer, I start to care less and less. Which is so bad, but I find myself super burned out and just apathetic about the whole thing.
Without fail, I end up in a “Meh. I’ll just read these notes and most likely pass. I don’t really care what my grades are anyway.” kinda situation.e
Only this time, I’m applying that situation to my finances as well! I have tons of meal dollars left on my account, but I’ve been eating out aaalll the live long day since the dining hall is just so 2008. 😉 More eating out –> more attractive food –> pictures for What I Ate Wednesday!
Regardless of whether I’m in the dining hall or not, though, I have found myself eating dramatically less meat! When I don’t have a wonderful mother preparing me delicious BBQ chicken caesar salads, or a cruise ship chef searing filet mignon to perfection, meat is just not all that appealing. I’m looking forward to having more of it (13 days!) since I feel way more energized with it in my diet, but for now we can just enjoy some plant-based goodness. 🙂
I was scrolling through my iPhone pictures figuring out to post for WIAW, and realized that on Sunday I was 100% vegetarian! This never happens (I usually will be 99% there and then have like, a slice of deli meat.) so it had to be documented! Thanks for hosting, Jenn. 🙂
Breakfast: Eggs & Toast at Heirloom
What better place to start off my day of vegetarianism than a plant-based restaurant, right? I was craving poached eggs like no other, so I knew what I was having before I even arrived! I always crave interesting breakfast concoctions for meals later in the day…right at the beginning, simplicity is perfection for this girl!
Also, the combination of coconut oil + jam + eggs on toast will most definitely be repeated.
Lunch: Hummus + veggies + hard boiled eggs
I was extremely unimpressed by the options at the dining hall, so off to the salad bar it was! My life has been saved by that thing more times than I can count. I also had three hard boiled eggs, but I couldn’t fit them on the plate. 😉
I have a tendency to just snack the whole afternoon away, so I didn’t manage to get actual photographs. Just imagine a bag of almonds, a Kind bar, and an apple with chocolate peanut butter!
You guys. This peanut butter is SO. beyond. words. I don’t even love it for the protein, since I don’t feel like it makes a difference in terms of satiation/fullness. I tried Dark Chocolate Dreams by PB&Co a while back, and it just felt like I was eating chemicals. This stuff, though…heaven.
Dinner: Whole Foods salad bar
I am basically incapable of setting foot within 20 minutes of Whole Foods and not attacking the salad bar. Since Heirloom is only a couple of blocks away, I obviously had to stop in on the way home to get something for dinner. I had to, you guys. Mushrooms, beets, asparagus, squash, chickpeas and rice made for a very happy evening.

Do you eat meat? If so, what is your favourite kind?
If not, do you miss it?
