what i ate wednesday #8

I have a confession.  I ate breakfast.   Before taking a picture.  It was my first time since participating in WIAW that I have done that.  And with two months now under my belt, you’d think I would remember… guess not.  So the best I can give you is a deconstructed breakfast and a recipe.  But at least my little morning forgetfulness was only kept to the one meal!


Overnight Oats topped with blueberries, a nectarine (got a HUGE box at TJ’s last weekend), ground flax and sunflower butter.  Yum!

Recipe for Easy Overnight Oats:

  • 1/2 c rolled oats
  • 3/4-1 cup non-dairy milk
  • 1T chia seeds

Combine all ingredients and keep in the fridge overnight, or at least for a couple hours.  Such an easy and not-warm breakfast just perfect for warm, summer mornings!

Mid-Morning Snack:

Cherries – on sale at Whole Foods for $3.99/lb!


Millet & Flax Bread with Garlic Hummus, grilled (tastes like garlic bread – so good!).  With a side salad topped with carrots, a fried egg and some salt.  Perfect and simple Lunch.

Accompanied by some iced tea – made with Tazo Awake.

As well as a Blueberry Muffin Lärabar.  This was the first time I had one of these – and it really did taste like  blueberry muffin!  There will definitely be more of these in my future.

Afternoon Snack:

Beanitos with TJ’s Autentica Salsa


Lemon and Green Pea Risotto with Roasted Red Peppers + Chickpeas.  Recipe in Veganomicon.  Also had two of Oh She Glow’s Chocolate Dipped Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Balls.  Hers looked prettier.
