WIAW: Rendezvous Edition


This morning I woke up at 6:45 to run before work. I woke up earlier than normal when I run because it’s supposed to be 2516587441 degrees today and I am not a fan of running in that.  I still ended up looking like this:


The good news is that my knee isn’t bothering me.  So now I am 3 for 3 on runs without pain.  Typically I would be able to feel it around mile 3 or 4, but it wasn’t until I got into higher mileage that it really became an acute problem.  So as my distance restriction is increased, I will have a better idea of just how well I am doing.  Fingers crossed.

Now for this weekend’s eats.  Like I recapped on Monday, I went out with a lot of girlfriends so there were lots of opportunities for variety.  Check out Jenn’s blog for what What I Ate Wednesday is all about and even to add a link of your own!

My breakfasts are always the same, so I’m not going to bore you with the same pictures.  Scrambled eggs & mushrooms with a chocolate blueberry basil smoothie and a glass of water mixed with apple cider vinegar.


Saturday there were two lunches because we had a graduation party to go to first and then I met my friend for lunch at Tyson’s.  Below is my lunch from Le Pain Quotidien.  It is some kind of 7 layer vegetable thing with buckwheat crust which means it is also gluten-free.  It was delicious.  That was followed up by a Belgian Brownie that we split.  Not gluten-free, but so good.



The graduation lunch was at the same restaurant that catered the Indian food for our reception.  I ate a lot of chicken and veggies.



Sunday lunch was a trip to Wegmans.  I loaded up on all sorts of vegetable slaws and mixtures.  Also I can never have enough mushrooms.



Saturday night we went to another couple’s house where they made a beet, basil, and mint salad, steak, roasted beets, and grilled bok choy.  It was fantastic.  Good thing we like beets.




Sunday night a friend and I got Thai food and I got the same thing I always do: chicken, BASIL, and vegetables.  I asked them to make it “Thai spicy” and ended up going through 3 tissues. I hope people didn’t think she was breaking up with me as I cried and blew my nose.  It was spicetastic.

I got mango sticky rice for dessert because it is obligatory whenever I get Thai food, but I love it so much that I inhaled it.



I went to a new bakery where they have a big selection of vegan and gluten free cupcakes.  I got this GF/DF chocolate one.  It was good in that it tasted like a normal cupcake.  It was bad in that I don’t like normal cupcakes and I was anticipating the delicious fudginess of a flourless cupcake.  If you like regular cupcakes though and have these dietary restrictions, then this is the place for you!


I am still smothering dates in almond butter and eating them like crazy. I CAN’T STOP.


That’s it for my eats this weekend!

Question of the day: What have you been eating lately? Anyone else have a date problem?

    Yummmm, your eats look AMAZING! Especially all of that Indian and Thai food! I love spicy things, so the more tissues, the better! One time when my husband and I went to a new Indian restaurant, we literally spent the entire meal simultaneously crying and saying “this is so good!” as we scooped up more. haha. I’m sure people thought we were freaks!

      Yeah I like spicier food that Neil so when we go out for Indian food they try and give it to him and I’m like no, BRING IT ON

        Haha I know, they always look at us like we’re crazy!
