I don’t know how many WIAW’s I will take part in because, frankly, I don’t always have the patience to make my plate look pretty and take the perfect photo (I hope to get better at it, though!). But I thought it would be cool to show what I ate this past Monday because my last few days have consisted of random, make-shift meals that involved only the microwave. I’ve been on-the-go and haven’t had any time to cook or plan meals but I still managed to eat healthy. What I ate would be doable for anyone living in a dorm (with a microwave and access to a grocery store). Thanks, Jenn for the link-up!
Breakfast: 2 bowls of gluten-free oatmeal with peanut butter and fruit
Snack: Apple and almonds
Lunch: Turkey wrap. Deli turkey on a gluten-free tortilla with lettuce and honey mustard
Snack: KIND bar
Dinner: Chicken thighs, sweet potato (microwaved), raw zucchini noodles with 1/2 avocado. Okay, here is where I “cheat” a little with dorm-room dining.. I still have some of the chicken my mom froze for me before I left, so I heated that up.
Snack: Apple and peanut butter…by the spoonful :)
So maybe I didn’t have too many vegetables but I still ate pretty well-balanced meals without actually cooking. I will have to get back in the kitchen soon as I only have one piece of chicken left, but I think I figured out which days I can cook based on my work and class schedule. There’s always Whole Foods hot bar for dinner…but the next thing I need to master is sticking to a grocery budget. Not something I’m good at.
What do you eat when you’re on-the-go? KIND bars are always my go-to
What was/is your favorite food in college? Apples and peanut butter. My favorite foods for the last 10+ years.
