Well it’s Wednesday today and since I had so much fun last week posting about what I ate (What I Ate Wednesday- WIAW), I thought I’d do it again. This week I’ve got pictures of what I ate on Monday, aka, my lazy day! I was lucky enough to have Friday AND Monday off of work. Monday, being my fourth day off, was filled with a whole lot of nothing. My schedule was so thrown off by Monday that all I did was go for a walk, watch glorified crime shows, do some school work and go spinning…actually, typing it makes me think I was more productive than I felt. Anyway…
I started my morning off with a whole lot of water, followed by a beautiful bowl of Sweet Potato Breakfast Mash (recipe below):

After breakfast, which I didn’t get around to eating until 1030am, I went for a walk and then watched some TV shows about crime. Seriously, my two main interests are crime and nutrition. Weird, but that’s me 🙂
I wasn’t having a very hungry day, so I threw together a plate of broccoli, sprinkled some sesame seeds on top and some sliced avocado on the side and called it lunch:
A few crime shows later, some nutrition textbook chapters read and I was snacking on celery and natural peanut butter:
Eventually I became restless and went to a spinning class. After sweating like a crazy for an hour, I was finally ready for a satisfying meal. I decided to treat myself to one of my favourite meals:
Lentil Balls with Spaghetti Squash! Even though it’s one of my favourite meals, I’m still tweaking the recipe…hopefully I’ll have it perfected and posted sooner rather than later.
Oh, I almost forgot! After dinner I found one of these hiding in my fridge:
A Chocolate Hazelnut Truffle (aka Homemade Ferrero Rocher)!!! And man, was it ever good. I love finding food hiding in the back of my fridge…well, only when it’s not gone bad!
Anyway, that was my day. And yes, I’ll be posting the recipe for the Homemade Ferrero Rocher very soon!
