What I Ate Wednesday: Day Off

Thanks to Jenn of Peas and Crayons for hosting.

This WIAW I had my first day off in a while and tried to pack in a full day of studying and a full day of relaxation. Turns out I only had one day's worth of time, but I got through some of both.

Breakfast: Smoothie in a Wine Glass (SIAWG). In the mix: protein powder, spinach, 1 frozen banana, 1 cup almond milk and a frozen pineapple ring. Blended in the magic bullet blender attachment, which I then couldn't separate, so thanks to my roommate Katie for helping me. Also be sure the little rubber ring in the blade part, because otherwise you may have some leaks. Lesson learned.

And after I fueled by brain up with this I had a date with my Step 2 Question Bank, as well as Dr. Dubin' EKG book. It was a wild morning. 

One of my other crazy adventures included grocery shopping. Spotted:

Okay it's hard to see. This woman is literally opening a giant container of yogurt and going at it with a plastic fork in the aisle of my fave health food store. Love this place. 

Lunch: Veggies with Aloo Palak from Tasty Bite. I was feeling something quick, so I put together some vegetables with some packaged Aloo Palak.

Snacks: Fruit, Gnu Fiber Bar in Peanut Butter. This fiber bar is pretty aggressively fiber-y, though the ingredient list is pretty awesome. It doesn't taste bad exactly, just extra chewy, and I don't really need 12 grams of fiber in my granola bar so I probably wouldn't buy it again. 

Dinner: BJ's Italian Market Salad. Except with no cheese, no meat, and the light Italian dressing. Surprisingly that still leaves a lot of good stuff on it: artichokes, peppers, kalamata olives and garbanzo beans. 

Dessert: Trader Joe's Coconut Milk Strawberry Ice Cream. These were gone from my TJ's for awhile and I was so happy to see them come back. I didn't intend to eat a whole pint, but, well, things happen. And it was so good. 

And plenty of greens, happy WIAW!
