Haaaappy first day of summer. I wish I could have celebrated with a smoothie this morning, but I was out of spinach - which happens too often! I try not to buy too much at once because it gets slimy so quickly. Does anyone have any tips on how to store spinach? Anyway, berries and oats rang in the new season:
Overnight oats with chia seeds, banana, blackberries, and applesauce. Iced tea.
G was kind and got me a peach and an apple for snacks! I rarely eat peaches because I think I have a slight stone fruit allergy (the same thing happens with cherries) and they make my mouth itch! But it didn't happen with this peach, so, thank you, G, you're magic.
After the peach I had lunch, mostly leftovers from yesterday:
Mixed greens, chard, sweet potato, carrots, topped with homemade sundried tomato hummus. (I was actually making this hummus minutes before I left to meet my friend last night and ran out the door with chickpea juice on my fingers.) The salad was really good.
So good I had pretty much the same thing for dinner, after a short workout and shower (I reeeeally needed to sweat out some stress):
Salad (no sweet potato) with avocado and hummus for the ultimate creamy topping!
After looking at Shen's posts lately, I realize I rarely post my desserts. This is partially because I usually blog while eating dinner, and dessert comes too late to make the cut and partially because it's usually just an impulsive grab like a handful (or two) of chocolate chips or something. The last few nights, however, I haven't been feeling it (tonight included) despite leftover Father's Day coffee cake, plenty of dried fruit, jam and yogurt, applesauce, and chocolate chips. (Also unbaked cookie dough from the cookies of doom - but I ain't going near those.) I may skip dessert tonight but which would you guys pick? Do you usually eat dessert every night?
Speaking of Father's Day coffee cake - my mom sent me the pictures of the table! (And an awkward one of G and I that I am definitely not going to post.)
Cute little yard my folks have. Eating outside is so nice, I always forget. Minus the bees.
Anyway, screw dessert, bring on the beer. Tonight's is Brooklyn Summer Ale because now it is official!
