What I Ate Wednesday

A few weeks ago, I was tagged by my dear friend and mentor, McKenzie Hall to participate in the What I Ate Wednesday series. I couldn't have been more excited to photograph what I eat on a typical day. On this specific day, I had just arrived to Portland, Oregon where I will be completing my dietetic internship. Portland has been recognized as one of the healthiest cities in the country along with some of the healthiest restaurants. With that said, I could not wait to unleash my inner foodie and explore some of the amazing food options available to us Portlanders.

Commence exploration.

Beginning in my quaint neighborhood, Hillsdale, I came across a place I knew I would spend countless hours at doing homework and chugging coffee. Baker & Spice, a local cafe is where I ate breakfast...

Breakfast: Harvest Grain Bread + Coffee
Bread was made with a mix of veggies.

After breakfast, I explored the downtown area of Portland which is home to Powell's Bookstore and also where the Saturday Market is held. I eventually made my way back to Hillsdale and stopped for lunch at Verde Cocina...

Lunch: Sweet Potato & Black Bean Salad

This was a day filled with walking. When I say walking, I really mean hiking (there are hills everywhere!). So, my appetite was through the roof and this led me to Seasons & Regions.

Dinner: Fish tacos + rice & beans
Seasons and Regions restaurant uses produce from their own farm and other local farms to make their menu items. These tacos made excellent  leftovers for the following night as well.
