As always, thanks to Jenn from Peas and Crayons for hosting What I Ate Wednesday.
I’m still having to be careful about what I eat thanks to the dental work I’ve had done lately. That means nothing hard or really crunch. I very lightly toasted the bagel. In reality it was just warm rather than actually toasted, but after not having one for quite awhile it tasted pretty good. I topped the bagel off with some margarine. I’m very grateful that the poppy seeds on the bagel didn’t bother my mouth, because it was a delicious bagel. I also had some vanilla yogurt on the side.
Next up for lunch I made a salad. I was craving veggies like crazy (apparently I’d been missing them), so I added as many as I could to this salad. I started with some spinach and then added orange bell pepper, radishes, cherry tomatoes, and thousand island salad dressing. It was just what I needed and it hit the spot. Later on I started to get a but hungry so I had a whole wheat bun with some strawberry jam on it.
I’m not going to lie, one of the things I’ve really been missing over the last 3 or 4 weeks has been eating out. For the first little while it wasn’t worth risking it, just in case I bit into something hard. I was already on pain meds, I didn’t need to be making it worse. Luckily my mouth doesn’t hurt most of the time, so I ventured out to one of my favorite Greek restaurants, Paros Souvla. I avoided the crunchy bits on the potatoes and veggies, and ate the pork really slowly, but I ended up being able to eat quite a bit of it. The highlight of the meal was definitely the tzatziki sauce and pita bread.
Now that you know what I’ve been eating, leave me a comment with your favorite meal over the last week.
