WIAW: Comfort Food Edition

Some days are fun.  Some days are smooth as molasses.  Some days are a piece of cake.  Then again… some days aren’t.  Yesterday was not one of those days.

Peas & Crayons 

I knew it was going to be a doozie, so I did my hip exercises instead of a hard workout in the morning.  Hey, it was still something productive that allowed me to drink my coffee.  (multitasking)  I then powered up with a hemp and raspberry spinach smoothie.


I powered up again with this “marathon mix.”  It’s high calorie, but it’s delicious and nutritious.  Win.

Lunch was a salad packed with strawberries, mushrooms, radishes, and cucumber – all topped with Annie’s Woodstock dressing.  The salad and the dressing were both great, but a different dressing might have made for a better pairing.


For snack, I planned to have an apple and a hard boiled egg, but I thought this day needed some fun, or at least a fun-size treat.  (I still had the apple too.)


I got home, ate a rice cake and sweated it out while dinner cooked.  It’s amazing how even a quick workout can change your mood.  Anyway, dinner’s ugly, but it was good.  Sweet potatoes are a total comfort food for me.  Well, sweet potatoes and fun-size treats… among other things.


I may have also went for a little organic chocolate ice cream for dessert.  It was full-fat, so super creamy, but surprisingly relatively low in calories.  After today – I deserved it!

What are your comfort foods (the healthy or not-so-healthy ones)?

    to the m&ms – it’s all about moderation! I want to do that salad sometime, you always forget that fruit can be a fun topping.
