WIAW #11: I’ve Got Spirit; How ‘Bout You?

Hey there! How’s your week going?

This week’s a biggie for me. First of all, it’s spirit week at my school (and homecoming is this Saturday), so the festivities are endless! Yesterday we had almost a two hour period in the middle of the day dedicated just to playing fun outdoor games. It was a little chilly (okay, A LOT chilly), but fun none the less. I’m starting to get pretty nostalgic because this is my last year of high school. I’ve been at my school since 3 years old, so graduating in June is almost unfathomable.

Another exciting thing this week is the notification of my scholarship information (wish me luck!) that I should be receiving soon. Of course I hope that I make it to the next round, but regardless of what happens, I’m definitely glad I tried. Writing college essays has given me time to reflect on who I am am and who I’m growing up to be. They require a lot of thought, effort, and time, but will be wonderful to tuck away to read many years from now.

Anyway, let’s get to the food! It is What I Ate Wednesday after all. 🙂 [—>check it out here!]

Breakfast: pumpkin spice (protein) muffin with cinnamon-spiced apples, almond milk, and a dollup of pumpkin on top.

Lunch: hummus + veggie sandwich on homemade vegan + gluten-free bread. (Check back for the recipe on Thursday.) I adore this bread. It’s made with buckwheat, sprouted quinoa, and flax seed. Yummmm!

Dinner: vegan + gluten-free pumpkin mac and cheese (sprinkled with smoked paprika) and kale chips. The sauce was surprisingly savory; you can barely taste the pumpkin, but it definitely lends a wonderful creaminess to the sauce. Nooch + pumpkin is a lot better combination than I imagined!

Dessert: chocolate banana soft serve. Naturally.

How did you enjoy your senior year of high school? What’s are you eating today? 

Have a lovely day!
