My 1st WIAW!

19 Sep

Hello Friends and Happy Wednesday!

I am so very excited to participate in my first “What I Ate Wednesday” (WIAW) post! WIAW was started by Peas and Crayons and is a fun event where bloggers celebrate the one thing that we ALL love : food! One aspect of WIAW that I love is that it is not meant to brag or inflict guilt on others. Instead, WIAW spreads inspiration and individuality among the blogging community. My intention for participating in WIAW is to share with the blogging community what foods I enjoy and what works for me!

This week, I thought I’d share what a typical day of school looks like for me. On Tuesdays, I have classes for 6 and a half hours, which equates to one hungry Anjali! I’ve learned that in order to stay alert during my classes, it is essential that I pack lunch to bring with me! My professors are very tolerant about eating during class. Below is a picture montage of what I brought to school yesterday.

Brain Fuel

1. Since class started at 12:00, I packed myself a whole wheat turkey wrap for lunch. As a base, I used laughing cow garlic and herb cheese, and topped it off with cucumber, spinach, and banana pepper. The laughing cow really kicks up the wrap another notch. So good!

2. Strawberries. Pretty self explanatory, but the natural sweetness of the strawberries are great at fulfilling my post-lunch sweet tooth.

3. Trail Mix! I have been OBSESSED with trail mix lately. The Nuts about Raspberries & Chocolate Trail Mix from Trader Joes is absolutely amazing! It is consisted of dried raspberries, almonds, dark chocolate nibs, and peanuts. The dark chocolate is to die for! I also threw into the mix some banana chips and craisins. I try to limit the trail mix to 1/4 cup, but it’s literally so addicting. I could munch on it all day!

4. Veggies!! I always pack a tupperware of veggies for school. If it’s in my lunch box ..I’ll eat it. Yesterday’s veggie tupperware consisted of sugar snap peas, baby carrots, and cucumbers.

Now, this is not a set in stone list of what I bring to class each day. I love to switch it up whether it be trying a new salad or snack. I’m also always on the prowl for new lunch ideas, so if you have any suggestions, I would love to hear them!

Have a great Wednesday!
