WIAW- Vegas edition!

Greetings from Vegas!

I have been living the hotel life for the last few days while on a work trip. It’s been a lot of fun, but it definitely required a lot of planning to make sure I would have food for the week. I may write a separate post about the planning and what I did for the whole week. For now, I want to share what I had today. The event provides food for part of the week, and they have been amazing with allergies.

Breakfast: I brought my own nectarine and avocado, which I added to the bacon and fruit salad provided (both of which were labelled as safe for me).

Lunch: barbecue chicken and salad. I got to be the first person to eat off the buffet to make sure nothing was cross contaminated.

Dinner: I have been eating in my room every night, and enjoying relaxing in front of the television. Today I had a can of tuna, tomatoes, and avocado with rice chips.

Between meals I snacked on some pumpkin seeds, and, of course, coffee 😊

WIAW – March 20

Welcome to “What I ate Wednesday – sickness edition”

I am on my second day of being stuck in bed with a nasty sinus and upper respiratory infection. Super gross.

Breakfast was a small portion of cauliflower potato soup.

By lunch time I had a craving for salmon, so I mixed a can up with some avocado and had a side of veggies. Sorry for the really ugly picture.

I snacked on some of these dried cherries, but tried not to have too many since they do have added sugar.

Dinner time…more soup! And broccolini. My photo won’t upload, but you get the idea πŸ™‚

I completed all of my #sleetpocalypse shopping today. Now, I just need my work to close…any minute now…guys?

In any case, here’s a little peek at what I ate today.

Breakfast was homemade sauerkraut and cauliflower potato soup with hemp seeds sprinkled on top. I forgot to take a pic of my coffee with coconut oil

Weekend Highlights: Veggie Haul and Road Trippin’

I used some vacation days to take a long weekend, and it was definitely worth it. We got to take a little road trip to see some friends that we haven’t seen in years. It was, however, cold! Moving north is NOT on my list of things to do.

Before heading out, I did stock up the fridge with some veggies from the farmer’s market.

And, I had some more coffee/coconut oil emulsion.

2013-02-16 11.20.39

Then, road trip! Illinois is very boring to drive through.

2013-02-17 07.04.55

Michigan is also boring, but with snow.

2013-02-17 14.16.17

We packed a full cooler for a one-night trip because it can be really difficult to find food on the road. Here’s a picture of the (cold) roasted sweet potato/butternut squash, avocado, and canned salmon that we ate in a Starbucks parking lot πŸ™‚

WIAW – February 13

Today was a “special” day for me with food. I started my morning with some leftover butternut squash lasagna, a marshmallow, and some blueberries, followed by coffee with coconut oil.

And then for lunch I had MORE LASAGNA. It was just one of those days where eating whatever was in the fridge had to happen πŸ™‚ This time I had it with some broccolini.

2013-02-13 12.09.02

I was so snacky in the afternoon/early evening. I had an avocado, an orange, some fruit from an edible arrangement, and some potato chips (delicious, cooked in sunflower oil).
