I think a hit a food rut.
Literally all that sounds appetizing to me these past few days are bagels, fresh fruit, popsicles, and soup. The last time I felt this indifferent towards food I at least had an excuse. That “excuse” is currently spinning around in circles in what I can only gather is some sort of attempt to get high on dizzy. I vaguely remember doing the same as a kiddo.
It’s a sippery slope, kid!
First you’re spinning around in circles to get a rush, next thing you know you’re doing so many burpees that you’ve lost track of which direction is up. I think it’s this way. No, definitely not that way! Ahh… endorphins.
At least she’s not addicted to popsicles.
What I Ate Wednesday
So what do I eat when I just really don’t wanna? Food. The same few foods, over and over and over again. I think I know exactly how to break the rut though, SUSHI! Shana, if you’re reading this, let’s goooooo!
[breafast] an everything bagel with cream cheese [with two bites stolen by my tiny vulture, of course!] and a banana. [lunch] an evolution juice that had entirely too much celery in it for a drink that isn’t a bloody mary, along with some fresh melon and a mixed berry popsicle. It bears mentioning that I wouldn’t normally classify that as a lunch but, since I ate it all around lunchtime, let’s just go with it. A meh day of eating like this is usually followed by an indulgent one so I tend not to stress it; it’ll all even itself out. [dinner] defrosted chicken noodle soup [recycled photo!] with extra veggies. Mmm.. Just looking at that bowl makes me feel like I’m being hugged. I love soup. Once I break through this slump I’ll make us a pot of soup. Something fun.. Do you have a favorite restaurant soup that you want me to crack the recipe for? I LOVE doing that!
More interested in what the chickpea’s been eating lately? I’m behind on taking photos but holy how can this kid eat! Guacamole, black beans, garlic butter chicken, kiwis, asparagus, more kiwis, apple cinnamon waffles, chilled breakfast oats, and pretty much anything that isn’t milk. She’s starting to take after me and prefer edible dairy products the drinkable ones. Her pediatrician gave me some serious side eye but all I can do is offer it, right? Plus she eats like a college freshman after a night of keg stands. Girl can put. it. down. I shouldn’t be concerned about the distaste for milk, right? I don’t want to be concerned, but that nagging mom part of my brain is like ahhhh she will wilt!
