I have a little list of topics that I’m really excited to share in future What I Ate Wednesday posts. Most of them are more touchy-feely topics that are on my heart, and a few are more nutrition-related. But yesterday when I sat down to write this post, all I could think about was CHOCOLATE.
And when chocolate begs to be the highlight of my little corner of the internet, you best believe I deviate from my list and oblige.
You see, my faculty has an annual Chocolate Party (I KNOW) and last night was the night. Despite the fact that all I could think about was chocolate, I did manage to eat some other food throughout the day.
Vegetable plates and chocolate fountains. Balance is such a beautiful thing.
I’ve been trying to amp up my breakfasts a bit lately because my appetite is in serious over-drive in the mornings and if I have a wimpy breakfast I seem to get hungry almost right after I’m out the door. And while I love eating, I’ve got places to go and classes to attend and sometimes it’s just impractical to eat every 5 minutes. This breakfast stuck with me for a few hours!
banana pancakes (I sub whole wheat flour) + Sunbutter + hemp hearts //
over-easy egg // grapes // milk
As if I wasn’t already excited enough about the day on account of the whole chocolate thing, I woke up to Montreal’s first sheet of snow. Ohhhh my goodness it was one happy walk to school.
Apparently my body didn’t get the whole winter memo because I’ve been craving salads something fierce the last couple of weeks.
kale blend // tomato // avocado // carrots // peas // corn //
chickpeas // sundried tomatoes // balsamic vinaigrette
When I got home from the gym at 4:00 I was hungry, so I made myself a big snack plate and declared it the world’s earliest dinner. I was determined not to spoil my appetite for chocolate (that’s how it works, right?) so this was perfect.
veggies + hummus // whole wheat pita + vegepate //
thawed frozen mango
The chocolate party is always on the dressy side so a couple of friends and I got ready together.
Hiiiii cascading chocolate, thank you for making the world a better place.
Loved the Willy Wonka theme! I am due to watch that again.
My plate of chocolate-covered fruit, pretzels, peppermint bark, brownie, sugar cookie and mini candy cane. Many other delicious miscellaneous bites were had.
Everything was so pretty and we followed up the chocolate-eating with some dancing to cap off a night that I didn’t think could get better.
A happy day, indeed.
I hope that you have a great Wednesday and if you’re a fellow chocolate-lover, go get your hands on some!
