what i ate wednesday #4

I can’t believe it’s my FOURTH WIAW!  It was a pretty low-key day for me – nothing on the to-do list!  Just wish the weather was nicer + warmer!  One thing the cold and semi-rainy weather made me finally do was to make a Facebook page for my blog!  I’ll put up all my posts from now on there so it’s an easy way to stay updated with my site!

Breakfast

I started out the morning with a cup of Green Tea with a little soymilk.  I had some steel-cut oats + flax with peanut butter, a little granola (recipe to come soon!) and a Gluten Free Banana Power Muffin – yum!  I also had a dish of blueberries – which I would say are my favorite berries.  I love that they finally do not cost a small fortune!  I also may or may not have left the soymilk container out all morning since I moved my breakfast away from the counter for the picture… whoops!

Lunch

Leftovers from last night… definitely a trend from the last few WIAW’s!  Cheezy Lentils (cooked lentils with a vegan cheez sauce from Appetite for Reduction), roasted potatoes + carrots and some greens on the side.  I love roasted veggies this way.  I just washed them and put them on a pan with cooking spray, and roasted in a 350* oven for about an hour – makes the carrots so sweet and tasty!

Afternoon Snack

Grind-Your-Own Peanut Butter (Whole Foods) with a banana and a Gluten Free Banana Power Muffin.  I love this peanut butter – it is definitely unlike any other peanut butter I have had.  It’s super think and tastes almost like peanut butter cookie dough.

I also had a few blue corn tortilla chips + baby carrots later on in the afternoon.

Dinner

This meal idea came from the cookbook Appetite for Reduction.  Sweet Potato and Apple Mash (with a little almond milk, cinnamon and ginger), kale & pinto beans in a spicy tomato sauce.  It was supposed to be a southern meal with black eyed peas instead of the pinto beans and collard greens, but alas, Trader Joe’s didn’t have black eyed peas and we like kale better.

  1. I’ve never taken advantage of the grind your own nut butter option at WF or fresh market… were you a fan? =)

    Happy WIAW darling!!!! send some of those vegan cheezy lentils my way!

    • The grind your own nut butter definitely takes a little getting used to, but in a good way haha :). The first time I had it I wasn’t much of a fan, it seemed really dry and it was also unsalted which I was not used to. But now, I absolutely love it, it really does remind me of peanut butter cookie dough! So if you’re a nut butter fan, I would definitely recommend trying it out!

      And happy WIAW to you as well, I really do look forward to this day every week!

  2. Wow I love this day!! Whole roasted carrots? PLEASE!! and any nut butter that tastes like cookie dough is a must!
    everything looks so good cheesy lentils? muffins? gosh girl…..
