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?

  1. 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!
