What I Ate Today: 9/4

What I Ate Today 9/4/18

What I Ate Today

Labor Day weekend came and went and now I’m back with another installment of my What I Ate Today series, where I share exactly what I ate.

I used to go overboard on vacations (eating and drinking everything in sight), but now, I just continue my same 80/20 healthy lifestyle so that when I get back home, I’m not in “detox mode.”

So let’s get into what I ate yesterday, September 4, 2018.

What I Ate Today

Breakfast snack

Usually I have this Perfect Bar before my morning workout, but I just honestly was so hungry when I woke up and I didn’t feel like taking the time to make a smoothie, and I just wanted something grab-able. Plus, I kinda crave these bars now! I had a Perfect Bar, same as always:

What I Ate Today - 8/21


Around 10:30am, I had made it through my Inbox and was ready to make a smoothie. LUCKILY, I got a fresh batch of Daily Harvest smoothies before Labor Day weekend, so I had a healthy smoothie! I didn’t have smoothie ingredients (my fridge was empty except for a couple essentials I bought for Luca’s breakfast and our coffee the night we got home) so I was so grateful for these! I tried the new Ginger + Greens flavor and LOVED it!! Of course, I added granola on top – and a spoonful of collagen powder!

What I Ate Today


As I said before, I only bought the necessities the night we got back from Florida, so I had to order something. I ordered my favorite Coconut Chicken Curry bowl from a local spot in Jersey City called Short Grain. Always so good – it has pickled onions, salad, cucumber, carrot, brown rice and the most delicious curried chicken. I usually top it with avocado but we didn’t have any (fridge is EMPTY!) This meal always keeps me full until dinner.

What I Ate Today


I always get really full from those curry chicken bowls (so much rice!), so I had a light snack – a leftover egg donut from Luca’s breakfast dipped in some cashew butter.


I made my roasted veggie bowls for dinner (Lu has been requesting them lately!) – roasted balsamic brussels sprouts, sweet potatoes with chili powder, broccoli with lemon and garlic, served over lentils and topped with avocado and tahini drizzle. The best!

What I Ate Today


I had a bowl of Veggie Stix (always craving salty!) That’s it!

And that’s what I ate yesterday, September 4! Let me know in the comments if you’d like to see these every Wednesday, if they’re helpful for those of you looking for daily eats inspiration!

making a batch of this VEGAN PUMPKIN SNACKING LOAF today 🍞! I love to have a few mini loafs in the freezer to easily defrost for breakfasts or snacks for the kids, but also for myself - slathered with nut butter and a little sprinkle of hemp seeds 🥜 or some honey, butter and cinnamon for the kids 🍯🧈  ⁣

grab the recipe on the blog! happy monday! 🙌🏼⁣

went for a nice long walk outside with the kids (we haven’t been able to do that for a while, because it’s just been so freezing and/or snowing) 🥶 and then we decided to pick up some to-go sandwiches and while we waited, the kids had some banana bread and juice 🍊🍌🍞 luca said, “mama I want to stay here alllll day!” which made me feel sad, because we haven’t felt comfortable dining indoors yet, and I’m sure he misses the people watching at restaurants on the weekends 😔 it’s okay, I’m just filing this under “things we get to look forward to when it’s safe again” 💋 #jerseycity ...

a year and 5 days ago, I started @invisalign to correct my cross bite and fix some crowding on my lower teeth. 👄🦷 a few weeks into treatment, my dentist gave me some extra aligners (the clear trays that you wear that miraculously shift your teeth) “just in case” the Corona virus came to the US and the office has to shutdown. well, a LOT has happened in this past year (my teeth and bite have corrected and Corona certainly made its way here!) and today was the final appointment to perfect my teeth and bite with some veneers (which I haven’t quite gotten used to yet, but all of the stories you shared and kind compliments you gave in my DMs has made me feel A LOT better.) 😬⁣

in two weeks, I get my overnight retainers, which I’ll wear forever (but only to sleep.) aside from that, I’m done with #invisalign and it feels SO good. I cannot believe how drastically it has changed my face, and when I watch myself talk in a video or look at a photo of myself, I no longer cringe at my lisp or how crooked my face looks. it wasn’t something I was self-conscious of every day, but it’s definitely something that I noticed when looking at photos and it secretly bothered me. it’s silly, but it did! ⁣

now I can proudly say that I love my smile, and I feel more confident than ever. it’s a shame I’ll have to wear a mask and cover up this expensive smile 😂😂😂😂 but hopefully in 2022, I’ll be able to fully whip it out. right?!! 🤞🏼💉 ⁣

I’m going to write a blog post all about the process, share a ton of before and afters, but I wanted to ask.... are there any questions you have specifically that you’d like me to include/address? leave a comment below and let me know! and in the meantime, you can check out my Invisalign highlight for the whole journey!
