WIAW: April 23, 2014

in Other

It is official.  I am not the greatest at remembering to take pictures of my food for WIAW posts.  And when I do remember, I hardly ever take my WIAW pictures ON Wednesday.  That is so wrong, right?  Last week I featured my Thursday eats and this week I am featuring my Tuesday eats.  I seem to feature pretty much every single day other than Wednesday.  One of these days, though, I am going to get it right.  And on that day, we should all celebrate and throw a party!

Now while this is not quite as exciting as an actual party, I still think that we should celebrate all of the delicious food that I ate on Wednesday Tuesday.

What I Ate Wednesday Tuesday


WIAW 42314The first part of my breakfast was a green smoothie.  This smoothie contained unsweetened vanilla almond milk, French Vanilla Vega One, one frozen banana, frozen zucchini slices, frozen strawberries, and fresh spinach.  Will this ever get old?  No, probably not!

Pumpkin Breakfast BakeBreakfast part 2 was Robyn’s pumpkin baked oatmeal (with cacao powder added in) topped with strawberry jam that I melted in the microwave before eating it.

Mid-Morning Snack

fresh fruitFresh fruit for the win.  I cannot even begin to tell you how excited I am that cantaloupe is finally tasting good.  I am so glad to have it back in my life!


WIAW 42314 3Lunch was leftover Minestrone soup that I dug out of my freezer.  This was my last batch of leftover soup.  It looks like it is time to get my freezer stocked back up again!

rice cakesAnd, of course, my current favorite soup accompaniment: rice cakes!

Afternoon Snackage

WIAW 42314 7The usual: celery and peanut butter.  Can’t stop, won’t stop.

WIAW 42314 8And an apple!  Nom nom.


WIAW 42314 9Dinner was something that I have been majorly obsessed with the past few months: popped quinoa and cheesy eggs (made with vegan Daiya cheese) that I topped with sriracha and sea salt.  SO good.  Oh, and what you do not see is that I accidentally dumped about a fourth of this on my living room carpet while attempting to eat it.  Picking up quinoa off of carpeting is NOT fun.

Evening Snacks

WIAW 42314 11Yes, this is weird.  But what can I say…I love peas!  Leftover peas and baby carrots with hummus.  My method for eating this is to eat all of the carrots first and then mix together the peas and leftover hummus.  Don’t knock it until you try it.

WIAW 42314 12More fruit.  Like I said earlier…I am obsessed.  I will take any and all excuses to eat cantaloupe right now.  The fresh berries weren’t too shabby either ;)

WIAW 42314 13And finally, I capped off the night with a baked (microwaved) sweet potato topped with Justin’s vanilla almond butter.  I do not foresee ever tiring of this combination anytime soon.

Fong's pizza

Lots of treating has been going on in CEVG land.  Lots of treating for me, that is.  I tend to try to save a lot of my money as opposed to being a big spender (except when it comes to food- no surprise there), but over the past week I definitely splurged in a big [...]

sweet sour pizza 3y

Chinese food...on pizza?  I know, I know.  To some it may sound like a strange combination.  But if you are adventurous and cool different like me, then you just might look at this combination and think..."hmm, now that is something that I need to try!" Naturally, as I often do when I sit down at my dinner table [...]

breakfast egg nachos 7y

Nachos for breakfast?  Oh yes.  I went there. Several months ago I shared a recipe with you for sweet breakfast nachos.  Sweet is good.  Sweet and savory is good.  But this time, these are all about the savory. Scrambled Breakfast Nachos Serves 1 Ingredients olive oil cooking spray 2 corn tortillas fine sea salt 1 egg [...]

It's Wednesday!  Who is excited?  I know, I know... it's not Friday, Saturday, or Sunday.  But, it is also not Monday or Tuesday, so that is something to be happy about.  Another thing to be happy about is the topic of food.  Food and nutrition talk both make me happy and could literally take up [...]

bbq lentil sandwich 11y

There are just some sandwiches that I cannot forget.  Some sandwiches that I cannot get off of my mind.  At one point in my life, one of those sandwiches was a barbecue pulled pork sandwich.  Now I have not eaten pork in over two years, but what I have eaten is my own take on [...]

Italian loaf 15y

I am a meatloaf kind of girl.  Always have been, always will be.  And yes, despite what you may be thinking, a vegetarian can be a meatloaf person.  Scratch that- a "meatloaf" person.  While it may not be the "real" deal, meatloaf made with beans, lentils, and/or veggies is really quite fantastic. Now that we have established [...]

midtown crossing collage

I love a good tap- a tapped keg, that is.  When I hear that something is on tap, I usually associate that with an ice cold, foamy brew.  Well guess what.  It turns out that beer is not the only flavorful and comforting thing on tap.  Here in Omaha, we put things like olive oil [...]

friday favorites peanut butter kale y

It has been a little while since we have gotten together to talk about our my favorite subject, now hasn't it?  And what is that favorite subject?  Well...food, of course!  But do not worry.  I am coming 'attcha with some fantastic recipes from some of my favorite blogs, and a major workout for good measure.  Good [...]


Zevia Soda Giveaway

zevia giveaway

I am going to keep this post short and sweet- emphasis on the sweet part.  But do not worry.  We are talking about the sugar-free and artificial sweetener-free kind of sweet.  Oh, and the giveaway kind of sweet.Zevia sent me a free six-pack of a variety of their sodas (or what I like to refer to as "pop") [...]

I am coming to really like Wednesdays.  Obviously Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays are my favorite.  That's a no-brainer, right?  But Wednesdays and Thursdays are really becoming quite fabulous, too!  They are the gateway to the end of the work week and the weekend, and I cannot help but love the fact that Wednesdays are all about [...]
