To me, hearing about what someone ate sounds like boring small talk that I usually avoid. I think it’s mostly because people very rarely eat the same foods as I do so it’s hard to get excited about that cheesecake or the juicy steak … blech. So it’s ironic that I’d even consider telling all of you about what I’m eating.
However, one of the most common questions I get is, “but what do you eat??” A large part of this question is that people can’t fathom being happy eating vegetables all day. Well, when you put it that way, that doesn’t make me very happy either! Another part of the question, I think, is that people really just want some guidance. A lot of people ask me to spell out exactly what I’ve eaten. As I list the items, hesitantly, feeling a bit more like a zoo animal than a shining example of health, I can see them taking mental notes. I’ve finally come to realize that most people just want a peak into the day of a veggie eater.
Finally, one of my very close friends just asked me, point-blank: can you please make me a menu of what you eat so I can eat the same, for a week?
And I thought, what a great idea!!!
So let me introduce you to my newest series: What I Ate Wednesday.
What you’ll find is that I mostly get excited about one thing, in particular, every week and then eat the heck out of it until I discover another meal/dessert/obsession.
This week, this is what I’m eating:
