WIAW: October 23, 2013

in Other

It’s Wednesday!  You know what that means…a full day of my super fabulous, entertaining, unique, and amazing eats.  Okay, so those adjectives may not be true, but let’s go with it! ;)

WIAW general

What I Ate Wednesday Monday

Breakfast

WIAW 102313 5

Breakfast #1 before I headed into work was three microwaved eggwhites (with some hot sauce mixed in) all topped off with mango salsa.

pumpkin cocoa overnight oats 8y

Breakfast # 2 (eaten at work) was a big ole bowl of Pumpkin Cocoa Overnight Oats.  Look for the recipe tomorrow!

Snack

WIAW 31313 5

Mid-morning I ate celery with red pepper hummus dip.  Pretend that is hummus in the picture.  I was a bad blogger and forgot to take a picture! :(

Lunch

friday favorite butternut curry lentils

Lunch was leftovers from Sunday nights dinner: Butternut Squash and Lentil Curry Stew over cauliflower “rice” (more on this in a future Friday Foodie Favorites post).  It doesn’t look pretty, but it sure was tasty!

Snacks

WIAW 102313 3

My first afternoon snack consisted of whole roasted and salted almonds and raisins.  I love this combo!

WIAW 1023 4

I have been trying to up my water intake, so I drank a peach-pear La Croix sparkling water.  I am not entirely sold on this flavor, but I still enjoyed it more than drinking plain water.

WIAW 8713 2

I also snacked on an apple when I got home from work.  I rarely ever go a day without an apple!

Dinner

WIAW 102313 2

Dinner was The Happy Herbivore’s mock “tuna” salad on two pieces of toasted Ezekiel bread with lettuce.  This sandwich is SO good!  On the side I ate a dill pickle…

WIAW 102313

…and some cooked green beans.  These sure look pretty sad, huh? :(

Snacks

My evening snacks include carrots and cucumber slices with hummus (sorry no picture, but you’ve seen it all before!)…

WIAW 102313 6

…fresh strawberries and red grapes (I am obsessed with these babies right now!)…

WIAW 102313 7

…and a baked sweet potato (microwaved, actually) topped off with Justin’s maple almond butter.  I am telling you right now, this almond butter was sent from heaven.  I am in love!

Happy Wednesday, folks!

      You love veggies?? I never EVER would have guessed that! ;)

  • Alexis @ Hummusapien October 23, 2013, 8:29 am

    I’m legit always so blown away by how many fruits and veggies you can pack into a day. You’re a model fruit and veg citizen! Can’t wait for that pumpkin cocoa overnight oats recipe…I have WAY too much pumpkin sitting in the fridge. There are so many amazing recipes that it’s hard to pick one!

      Haha, thanks! ;) I sure try my best. And I hear you on the pumpkin. I have been getting SUPER overwhelmed by all of the millions of pumpkin recipes I want to make. I decided this month that I am officially going to start eating pumpkin year round.

  • Jackie October 23, 2013, 9:05 am

    Never had nut butter on a sweet potato but it sounds Delish!

      Oh my, you MUST try it!!

  • Kelly @ hidden fruits and veggies October 23, 2013, 9:41 am

    Whaaaat? No banana! Seems so unlike you ;-)

    • ClnEatingVegGrl October 23, 2013, 3:17 pm

      Haha, I know…right?? I don’t know what I was thinking!! ;) Actually..my bananas weren’t ripe enough. I was very sad :(.

  • Amanda @ .running with spoons. October 23, 2013, 9:46 am

    :lol: I love your obsession with Justin’s… and you know I can totally relate ;) And I don’t think I ever go a day without an apple either. Between applesauce, apple chips, and plain apples, I probably eat at least 2 a day.

    • ClnEatingVegGrl October 23, 2013, 3:17 pm

      You know what they say about apples…in my book you can never have too many!

  • Lindsay @ The Functional Foodie October 23, 2013, 9:52 am

    Girl, your eats look so good. Mainly that mock tuna salad is looking delicious. I definitely want to try out something like that. I am obsessed with tuna, so I bet a mock version would be healthier and delicious.

  • Dana @ Conscious Kitchen Blog October 23, 2013, 9:54 am

    I absolutely love the maple almond butter. I bought it on a whim because it was on sale and was hooked! I can only imagine how delicious it tasted on the sweet potato with the extra sweetness.

    • ClnEatingVegGrl October 23, 2013, 3:21 pm

      Isn’t it amazing? I really cannot get over how tasty it is. You definitely need to top a sweet potato with it. That has been my “go to” dessert at night lately.

  • Jess @ JessieBear What Will You Wear? October 23, 2013, 10:35 am

    Love raisins and almonds. Such a good combo. & Justin’s maple almond butter is sent from heaven for realll. Can’t wait for the overnight oats recipe!

    • ClnEatingVegGrl October 23, 2013, 3:22 pm

      Yay for all things almond related!! And to think I used to not like almonds….weird!

  • Sam @ Better With Sprinkles October 23, 2013, 11:29 am

    That almond butter is pretty fantastic! And I’m intrigued by the lentil curry, for sure!

      The curry is one of Becky’s recipes! I’ll be posting about it here soon!

  • Nicole @ FruitnFitness October 23, 2013, 11:34 am

    No banana for your morning snack? Your getting adventurous! I love la croix sparkling waters but that is one of my least favorite flavors, I really like the coconut and grapefruit. I love sweet potatoes with almond butter!

    • ClnEatingVegGrl October 23, 2013, 3:24 pm

      Isn’t it crazy?? All of my bananas weren’t ripe enough. It was super disappointing :(. Thanks for the recs on the La Croix flavors..I love the grapefruit but haven’t tried the coconut yet!

  • Elyse @ Lizzie Fit October 23, 2013, 1:07 pm

    Salted. Almonds :D I know raw almonds are really good for me and I use them whenever I can but if I’m eating almonds alone there WILL be salt ;)

      Blue Diamond makes a salt and vinegar flavor that is AMAZING! You should check those out!

      The truth is..you can!! :) I NEVER used to eat this healthy and thought I hated most vegetables. If you give everything a try multiple times, your tastebuds should come around!

  • Ashley October 23, 2013, 1:39 pm

    I really need to try overnight oats … I don’t know why I haven’t already but every time I see them on a blog I think, man I need to try this! haha

    Cooked green beans are one of my favs and red pepper hummus:)

    • ClnEatingVegGrl October 23, 2013, 3:27 pm

      Green beans are totally underrated! I especially love them roasted :).

  • Kim @ Hungry Healthy Girl October 23, 2013, 3:28 pm

    You know what they say…. an apple a day! I’ve been craving overnight oats and a cocoa pumpkin combo sounds fabulous!

    • ClnEatingVegGrl October 23, 2013, 8:59 pm

      Check back tomorrow…I think you’d like them! :)

  • meredith @ The Cookie ChRUNicles October 23, 2013, 3:39 pm

      I am about to make one again for an evening snack…SO good!

  • Miss Polkadot October 23, 2013, 6:49 pm

    Am I a bad blogger admitting that I’m still not fond of sweet potatoes? But hey, I’d totally take Justin’s maple almond butter if it was available over here ;).
    Your lunch looks and sounds like Pinch of Yum’s Kabocha Squash Lentil Stew which is super delicious and coincidentially was my lunch today. It wouldn’t have won a prize for looks but who cares if it tastes amazing?!

    • ClnEatingVegGrl October 23, 2013, 9:01 pm

      As long as you like almond butter, that’s all that matters! ;) And yes, lentils never ever photograph well :(.

  • Kathy @ Food Wine Thyme October 23, 2013, 7:04 pm

    You had such a well balanced day of eating. I love looking through your WIAW posts, gives me some ideas. :) Butternut Squash Lentil Stew is one of my favorites.

    • ClnEatingVegGrl October 23, 2013, 9:01 pm

      Yay! I am so glad to hear that! :)

  • Katie @ Daily Cup of Kate October 23, 2013, 8:44 pm

    Cant wait for that oats recipe!! :)

    • ClnEatingVegGrl October 23, 2013, 9:02 pm

      It’s a good one! Check back tomorrow!

  • Jan @ Sprouts n Squats October 23, 2013, 8:56 pm

    I need to get some of that almond butter shipped to australia, seriously!! It always looks and sounds yum.

    I went off apples as a snack for a whilst but this week I’m back on them and don’t know why I stopped having them ;)

      Yes, you NEED to get some Justin’s AB. It’s pretty much amazing!

  • Caitlin October 24, 2013, 8:23 am

    that lentil lunch looks amazing! i love the addition of butternut squash. the mango salsa on the eggs sounds great too. i love salsa on eggs but have never done a fruity salsa. great idea! sometimes there’s nothin better for dinner than a sandwich with a pickle on the side.

    • ClnEatingVegGrl October 24, 2013, 4:11 pm

      Sandwiches with pickles are the best! You just can’t have one without the other! ;)

  • Georgie October 24, 2013, 1:46 pm

    Sweet potatoes with nut butter is one of my favorites! Try adding coconut and cinnamon if you’re into that. So good :)

    • ClnEatingVegGrl October 24, 2013, 4:12 pm

      Yes!!! I have added cinnamon before and LOVED it! It is amazing what you can do with a sweet potato.
