Happy WIAW Readers! Thanks Jenn for the Weekly Link-up! Be sure to check out what everyone else is eating this week!
Here are a bunch of pics from my eats from my week off! It’s nice to be able to sit down for meals with a plate rather than eating out of tupperware in 20 minutes while checking emails, etc.
This is my only breakfast pic from this week! Overnight Oats: smashed banana, oats, cocoa powder, milk, honey, chia seed, and peanut butter after a long run with my legs up!
A bunch of big salads:
(This is actually an egg scramble)
Amazing New Years Dinner made by my dad: Steak, Yorkshire Pudding, Potatoes Au Gratin, and Red Cabbage.
My favorite Manhattan Salad from Grand Lux before a movie date with the fam to see Unbroken.
Chinese Food Take-Out on a Rainy Night.
Stuffed Peppers and Meal Prep- prepped for this week.
I was extremely proud of myself for sneaking this into the movies: water, butter popcorn rice cakes, and Christmas M&Ms aka WAY cheaper than spending money for snacks at the movies!
Funfetti Cake at my Godson’s first birthday. SO FREAKING GOOD. I am not a huge cake person because it’s just too sweet but there is something about this cake that isn’t super sweet.
Deviled Eggs with Caviar on New Years Day- my family feeds me well!
That is a wrap up of my tasty eats during my week off!
On another note…..
I am looking at my food pics and my sister brought this too my attention (my friends also told me that I look tan) that I have an orange glow to me. My hands def kinda have that hue and my face does too I guess. SO- I think I am eating too much beta-carotene which is found in carrots, sweet potatoes, butternut squash, etc. So after this week (since I really started to worry/notice about it after my food shopping) I am going to cut back on the orange foods. I am going to try different veggies in my salads, try white/red potatoes, and hopefully this orange hue goes away. I think I may pay a visit to the doctor too, just to make sure I am okay.
Does anyone have any advice/more information on this? Ever turned orange from beta-carotene?
