WHAT I ATE WEDNESDAY #6: PINEAPPLE & POTTERY

Happy Hump Day, Happy almost-Rosh Hashanah, and Happy WIAW! Thanks to Jenn at Peas & Crayons for hosting this fun link-up in which bloggers dish on what we've been eating. (In my case, I'm recalling what I ate yesterday/Tuesday.)

All my Tuesday mornings start pretty much the same, with a 6:30 spin class and breakfast soon thereafter. I woke up starving but didn't have enough time to eat something before class, so I left the studio sweaty and famished. I picked up a smoothie at Juice Generation. They made too much, so they gave me the extra in a puppy cup, which I (sweetly) brought home to my boyfriend. But I probably could've polished that one off too.

I was hungry a few hours later, so I made some quick oatmeal with a little brown sugar.

A girlfriend emailed me recently and said "What's the big deal about overnight oats?" Honestly, I don't know. I see them on a lot of health and fitness blogs, but the concept isn't really appealing to me. I like my oatmeal piping hot; part of its beauty is that it helps warm me up on chilly mornings.

Then it was time to study at Starbucks. Tall blonde in a grande cup with soy milk and cinnamon.

Awhile later I moved my solo study party over to Le Pain Quotidien for lunch. I love it there! Usually I eat lunch at home during the week, but I figured if I'm going to spoil myself, it may as well be on the day I get to talk about! 

I pretty much always order their vegetable quiche, and I don't eat the crust. Today they brought me a hefty side of cornichons, too. Score!

This photo is terrible, but I really wanted to show the vases. They belonged to my mom, and they are old school Jonathan Adler. I brought them home from my dad's house a few days ago and my boyfriend put them on the dining table. I smile every time I look at them. My mom bought them from Barney's in the 90s, back when he only made pottery, before he had a logo or a store or a was a household name. So cool. Also, I had a little pineapple for an early afternoon snack.

And an apple for a late afternoon snack. How cute is my lunch bag? (Or in this case, dinner bag.) I got it at Whole Foods. It's made by My Social Canvas and supports the Whole Kids Foundation. More info here.

Dinner was leftovers from the night before: white meat rotisserie chicken and green beans. 

And dessert was a few bites of vanilla frozen yogurt with a drizzle of caramel and a sprinkle of dark chocolate chips.
