WHAT I ATE WEDNESDAY: Beach Adventure!

IMG_20150624_113652
Sara and I have the EXACT same taste in music. We jammed to Luke Bryan, T Swift, and Dan and Shay both ways, amongst others.

Today, my gorgeous, compassionate, soul mate friend and I journeyed to the beach.

Sara is a gift from God. She reached out to me when she found my recovery instagram (cassiescookery) and we began talking. We have so much in common, and she tried anorexia recovery through the same FBT I did, and we both hated it. In the span of a half year, she has become one of my best friends, and she is such an unmistakable light in my life. We really lift each other up!IMG_20150624_143517ALRIGHT, well today is all about what I are today! I used to post a full day of eats on my instagram, but that became disordered for me. But I think doing it every once in awhile couldn’t hurt! Now, if you’ve never read this style of post before, remember: this is not about comparison. This is what I ate today. That’s it.

Breakfast. Before getting ready this morning, I nommed a delicious bowl of cooked oats with goat milk yogurt, frozen berries, and a glass of almond milk. I also took my vitamin d, c, and e! Oh and I sang Starships by Nicki Minaj all morning while getting ready wooohoooo! IMG_20150624_093249

Lunch. After a perfect drive, Sara and I arrived happily– and tiredly– at Grand Bend. We both really just wanted to hit the sand! We lay out towels and fell asleep for a couple hours which was perfect. We braved the water as much as we could and used a selfie stick. And eavesdropped on conversations. And laughed.

A lot.

We both had rumbling tummies and had a really late lunch at Subway. I got a foot long veggie stuffed with pickles, cucumbers, onion, pepper, and mustard and… I think that’s it.

Snack. After a perfect day and a ride home full of jams, I was exhausted. I got home at 6pm and took a nice nap. When I woke up, I got in a quick workout, did some laundry, some therapy homework, piano, yahtay yahtay. I also ate some carrots and peanut butter because that is the world’s best combo.

I can't get enough of this!
I can’t get enough of this!

Dinner. My parents had already tucked into a dinner of their own, so I settled on what I really, and always, want: baked oatmeal. That may seem like a strange dinner, but it’s substantial, and something I truly enjoy. Tonight I made cacao raspberry baked oats and topped with peanut butter and goat yogurt. IMG_20150624_202802

There you have it! Today’s summer food. While Sara and I just relaxed, it was the perfect adventure. Sara always helps me to find myself.
