What I Ate Wednesday

I actually remembered to take some pictures this week.  :)  *patting myself on back*


Breakfast: this week was either just a glass of water or some yummy strawberry Greek yogurt after my first class.  


Lunch: was the remains of Superbowl Sunday's roast beef sandwich.  I smooshed 1/2 an avocado and spread that on there instead of using mayo.  So good!

Afternoon snack

Afternoon Snack: was the remaining 1/2 of the avocado with some added cumin, salt, pepper, finely chopped onion and garlic and a bit of s-s-s-salsa.  I happily dipped some baked tortillas strips into that yummy mess while studying for an anatomy lecture.  Yes, I can eat while staring at pictures of dissections.  No, it isn't that gross.

Dinner:  I forgot to take pictures.  I made a big ol' crockpot full of Navy Bean Chowder.  Navy beans cooked in the crock pot overnight in chicken stock.  In the early afternoon I added a couple chopped carrots, celery ribs and 1/2 an onion.  A few spices (oregano, thyme, salt, pepper and garlic) and let that baby simmer until dinnertime.  Just before serving I took out about 1 1/2 cups of the beans and mashed them up then put back in to thicken.  This was so good with some homemade garlic bread (I use olive oil not butter).  The recipe called for turkey bacon but I just left that out because we don't have any.  :)  

As always I probably grabbed a hot chai on campus (Average temp has been b/w 0-25 degrees) and drank filtered water throughout the day.

What have you been eating this week?
