March 1 - LEMON WATER + CUTIES + HOT COCOA

I've been posting WIAT's lately like there's no fricken tomorrow. Why? Well, it's that time of the quarter at school when my life feels a wee bit like this (thanks, Buzzfeed, for understanding). 

Just a quick blurb on the Quarter System for those of you who are like "whaaaaat is she talking about..." - 

Its different from the semester system in that it only lasts about eleven weeks, instead of eighteen (I think). That, my friends, means that professors introduce themselves the minute class starts, and they "take it easy" on you for somewhere between 5-10 minutes. Then, it all begins. 

Basically, it's a semester's worth of work smushed into a little more than half its time. Buuuuuut, in all honesty, I must say that I actually really like it. I've only experienced the semester system throughout high school, but from what I know about the quarter system, the latter keeps me on top of my assignments (to an extent, and not without some stress) and refreshes me with new classes, new professors, new schedules every 3-ish months. 

Plus, Cal Poly SLO rocks the socks off of even the most rockin'-sockin' person. :) 

So, here's my eats for a day of procrastination, for which the quarter system allows none of. Go me. 

Pre-workout

Warm lemon water - I used to hate this, but lately I've been loving the idea of hydrating my body right away with something less harsh than ice cold water. Want know more about the benefits of lemon water? There ya' go :) 

Breakfast (post-barre sculpt workout) 

2 slices ezekiel bread + chocolate nut/seed butter + sliced strawberries 

Tea 

Green tea w/ lemon (only because I was too lazy to make coffee, which I really wanted) 

Snack #1 

about 1 oz. dark chocolate - 72% Ghiradelli + Whole Foods semi-sweet chunks 

Lunch 

Baked Japanese sweet potato + sauteed brussel sprouts & carrots & kale + Whole Foods refried pinto beans + 1/2 avocado + nutritional yeast + Trader Joe's tahini sauce 

this WILL be happening again. and probably again and again and again.

Snacks (there are multiple) 

3 small apple pie oatmeal cookies from Amy's Healthy Baking - I used mostly garbanzo bean flour, plus some Almond Pro, and a little sprouted brown rice flour. I also subbed the eggs for milk + xanthan gum, and added raisins! 

Lemon water (because I'm kind of addicted...) 

Snack (told you) 

3 cutie tangerines (right before dinner) 

Dinner 

Stir-fried cauliflower rice (make your own!) & zucchini + scrambled tofu w/ kale & chickpeas + 1/2 avocado + Trader Joe's Eggplant Hummus + mixed greens 

prepped this ahead of time (aka while I was less focused on hw) so that I could just grab & eat when I got hungry!

Dessert 

1 tiny slice of the chickpea flour banana bread from Ambitious Kitchen (added blueberries) 

Hot cocoa (recipe from The Chalkboard Mag, but without the extra spices)

And that's all! As always, I would LOVE to hear from you guys - what do you eat in a day? Have you tried any of these recipes? Let me know in the comments below! :)
