I almost didn’t write this post. I ate basically the same things on my long run day as I did on the previous day I documented for What I Ate Wednesday. Which is surprising – usually on long run days I eat anything that stands still. This Sunday I only did eight miles because the snow was nuts (I know, that makes me sound like a real jerk - only eight miles) so I’m pretty positive that’s why my hunger was in check. Also, I have figured out that long run days don’t mean eat everything I can find – it means just eat a little more than normal.
Sorry I’m not sorry for the multitude of iPhone photos coming up.
Breakfast: Two Minute Pumpkin Quinoa Breakfast Muffin
I’ve always had the all-or-nothing mentality when it comes to food: I’ll literally eat the same things every day for 2-3 months then move on to the next thing. Right now, the quinoa pumpkin breakfast muffin is doing it for me so I’m not fixing what isn’t broken.
Lunch: Grilled chicken salad with grilled veggies and feta cheese
When I got in from my run I was frozen. I was at my grandparents because my grandmother and I had a spa day on Saturday and I was snowed in (I didn’t hate it) so when I got home she grilled some chicken for me and I had a huge salad. My fave.
Snack: Yogurt with cinnamon apples
About an hour or two after my salad was finished, I was hungry again (long run probs). I ignored it for an hour or so, focusing on some work I had to get done, then microwaved half a chopped apple with some vanilla and cinnamon and ate it over plain Greek yogurt.
Dinner: Spaghetti squash with cod, asparagus, capers and pesto
Dinner was once again basically cleaning out the fridge into a bowl. I had some spaghetti squash, random asparagus, random cod from failed fish sticks, and a little bit of pesto left over. I added parmesan cheese and capers.
Dessert: Roasted kabocha squash with cottage cheese
I’m literally addicted to squash. Thank God I found out Oriental grocery stores sell kabocha squash under the code name “Japanese Yam”. My life is once again complete. Topped this deliciousness with some almond butter and cinnamon. Perfection.

Do you think my eating habits are weird/unhealthy? Do you eat the same foods for months at a time?
