So it may feel like Tuesday, but I am excited to tell you that it is not!  It is Wednesday!  That’s right, veggie-loving friends.  We already made it to hump-day and it feels like the week just started.  This girl is not complaining.

Like every other Wednesday, I am linking up with Jenn from Peas and Crayons for What I Ate Wednesday.  Let’s take a peek into a day of my weekend eats.

What I Ate WednesdayWhat I Ate Wednesday: May 27, 2015

breakfast_sandwichMy breakfast on Saturday morning did not exactly go as planned.  Remember when I purchased that super expensive coconut flour paleo bread?  I was pumped to try it out in an egg and vegan cheese breakfast sandwich to fuel me for my Pilates Fusion class that morning.  Except it tasted downright awful.  Seriously.  It was so bad that I had to spit it out.  So instead, I ate the fried egg and cheese- sans bread.

apple_pie_larabarNaturally, one egg and a slice of vegan cheese was not going to be enough to keep me full for the next two and a half hours.  And it was most definitely not enough to fuel me through a workout.  So I warmed up an apple pie Larabar and topped it off with a bit of crunchy almond butter.  Ahh, much better!

plantain_nachosMy workout was at 9:45.  After the 25 minute drive home and some blog work, I sat down to a delicious plate of plantain nachos for lunch.  Maybe I’ll write up a whole post dedicated to these nachos.  They deserve it.

green_smoothieAfter a rare afternoon nap, my stomach was growling again.  I whipped up a green smoothie with unsweetened vanilla almond milk, chocolate Vega One (<– affiliate link), almond butter, frozen banana, frozen blueberries, frozen zucchini, and frozen spinach.  It was super cold and super filling.

salad WIAWDinner was eaten around 6:30 and was a humongous salad.  In the mix was Romaine lettuce, carrots, orange peppers, radishes, green onions, cucumbers, raisins, crumbled grain-free tortilla chips, and homemade ranch dressing.  I am crushing on salads big-time lately, and I am not mad about it.

vegan_raspberry_cheezcakeI finished my night off with a sweet treat: a slice of Raspberry Tofu Cheezcake from Veestro.  Apparently I let it thaw out in the fridge a bit too long because it didn’t exactly hold its shape.  I could have cared less, though.  It was deeeelicious!  Seriously, you guys, you would never ever guess this was made with tofu.  I am so sad all of my cheezcake treats from Veestro are gone now.

While this particular day didn’t exactly start out on a high note on the food front, I cannot complain about how the rest of the day went.  You win some, you lose some.  Thank goodness most of my food choices were winners.

plantain chips and guac

I hope I am not jinxing myself by saying this, but this week is actually going by fairly quickly so far.  Maybe it is because I had a short work day on Monday?  Or maybe it is because I am so excited for the three-day weekend coming up soon?  Either way, I'll take it! I'll [...]

Happy Monday to ya!  While you are reading this, I am probably making the five-hour drive back to Nebraska this morning.  It is always rough rolling into work at noon after driving five hours because driving makes me so exhausted, but it's worth it to have an extra night back home!

Saying "Sí" to Springtime and Drinking Wine I had the best day on Saturday.  It was literally the perfect Spring day.  Temperatures were in the 70's, the sun was peaking through the clouds, and downtown Omaha was hopping, though a bit breezy... but when is it not windy in Nebraska?  Despite the wind, I did manage to [...]

MULA_Omaha_Tacos 2

Have I got a restaurant to talk to you about today! I could not possibly go through last week without eating a little Mexican food, right?  And even though I shared 55 recipes that were perfect to make on Cinco de Mayo, I am guilty of not having made a single one.  In fact, I [...]
