What I ate in a day: Busy first day volunteering!

I’ve been seeing so many bloggers and vloggers try their hands at “What I eat in a day” posts, that I thought I might try my hand at it! I documented everything that I ate in one day, and going though the pictures now it doesn’t really look like much… This day was especially busy for me (great job picking the day, Liz!), because I started a volunteering gig for the summer, so my day was pretty much taken up by exercising, getting ready and attempting to make myself look presentable, and volunteering. I woke up kind of late, too, and since I don’t like eating before I go for my run, that means that I didn’t eat a breakfast.

For my lunch, however, I went with more breakfast-y foods, and I made Minute Oats oatmeal with blueberries, half a banana, granola, and agave. I also had wheat toast with peanut butter.

I am a firm believer in healthy snacking. I think that five smaller meals in a day is so much better for your metabolism than three big meals, so I love Kind bars like these, especially when I am really busy and I can’t sit down and eat something. I think I literally ate this as as I was walking out the door and as I drove. This one is my favorite, since it has dark chocolate, and it’s so good!

Another snack that I had were the rest of these Harvest Snaps green pea crisps. I love these! They’re such a satisfying snack when you’re craving something salty (but they’re not too salty either, which is nice). I honestly think that I like these better than potato chips.

For dinner, I met my dad at a local restaurant. It is a fantastic creperie, and my family loves going there. We probably go at least once a month, and all of their crepes are amazing! I tried their special for the day, which was their pineapple pizza crepe (I left off the ham since… vegetarian life!) and guys… It was SO. GOOD. I can only hope that they have this crepe when I go back next time, because I am not exaggerating when I tell you that I think it may be the best thing I’ve ever tasted in my life.

When my mom came home from a business dinner, she brought back some goodies for us to share, including these macarons! They were so delicious, and it was such a nice surprise, since I hadn’t had macarons in 2 or 3 years! There were three different flavors and two of each, so my mom and I both got to try each flavor. There was lemon, black raspberry, and chocolate. They were all good, but the chocolate was definitely my favorite 🙂

I really enjoyed doing this! Even if I was that basic girl taking pictures of her food, but I really don’t care, haha! I love cooking and eating (obviously), so whenever I make or eat something interesting for a day, I’ll be sure to share. And by “interesting,” I mean other than my usual Morningstar Farms “chicken” salads and yogurt. Because that’s what I eat for the majority of the time. Oh, and those mini Babybel cheese things. They’re bomb. I could live off those.

With love and food,
