WIAW: February 26, 2014- Backwards Style

in Other

Happy Wednesday, Friends!  You have been getting some Wednesday posts from me lately, but nothing that involves a chronicle of my daily eats. It is time that I jump back in and join the What I Ate Wednesday party again.  Better late than never, right?  And to help keep things interesting, I am going to change the format up a bit.  It is What I Ate Wednesday last Saturday…backwards style!

Evening Snacks

I rounded out the night with the usual…

WIAW 22614 7

Popcorn…

WIAW 22614 8

…fresh fruit…

WIAW 22614 6

…and some baby carrots- because I do not think that I can go a day without them.

Dinner

WIAW 22614 5

Dinner was from the salad bar at Whole Foods…aka one of my favorite things ever.  I met up with Joanna, Erin, Jess, and Jamie (and babies, Eleanor and Jada!) and we had a blast, as always!  In the mix: a little bit of everything delicious.  P.s. I just realized that I was with all E’s and J’s and now I’m starting to feel like I was a bit out of place with an “H” name ;)

Afternoon Snacks

WIAW 22614

A couple of hours before dinner, I snacked on my current favorite snack: A microwaved diced apple (drain any water afterwards) topped with cinnamon, almond butter, and Enjoy Life vegan chocolate chunks.  The AB and chocolate get all warm and melty.  It is AWESOME.

Lunch

WIAW 22614 4

Lunch was a big bowl of barbecue vegetable stew I had cooked up over the weekend- with extra bbq sauce on top, of course!

Mid-Morning Snack

WIAW 22614 3

Cuties!  Because no day is complete without them…well, unless they are out of season! ;)

WIAW 22614 9

I brought back one of my old favorites for breakfast: the sweet and savory combo!  I topped a whole wheat English muffin with blackberry jam, mashed avocado, and sea salt.  On the side I ate scrambled eggwhites.

Breakfast

WIAW 22614 2

And finally, my day started out with lots of hydration from water and a green smoothie.  In the mix for the green smoothie was unsweetened coconut milk, vanilla Vega One, frozen banana slices, frozen cranberries, frozen raspberries, and spinach!

WIAW february

And there you have it!  I finally shared a full day of eats with you.  I hope I did not confuse you too much with my backwards style.  But hey, y’all are smarty pants so I am sure you followed along just fine!

    I love Whole Foods food bar. I intend to get there this week and I already excited about it lol. And, we know I love the warm apples with peanut butter and chocolate. My winter apple bowl as I refer to it. I bet I will even eat it in the summer. So good when it gets all melty!

    • ClnEatingVegGrl February 27, 2014, 3:19 pm

  • Jessie February 26, 2014, 6:50 am

      It certainly did not disappoint!

  • Becky@TheSavedRunner February 26, 2014, 10:50 am

    That barbecue vegetable stew looks delicious! You should share that recipe!

    • ClnEatingVegGrl February 27, 2014, 3:21 pm

      Haha, a lot of people seem to think so! I wasn’t going to because I didn’t love my pictures, but maybe I will anyways!

  • Jamie @ Sometimes Healthy Living Blog February 26, 2014, 10:52 am

    Love the idea of reversing WIAW!

    First off, so great meeting you on Saturday – mmm…still thinking of that Whole Foods salad. I can’t believe I ate that entire gigantic thing.

    I love your snack of baked apple, almond butter and chocolate chunks – sounds delicious! Think I’m going to need to add that to my snack rotation :-)

      It was so awesome meeting you too!! And of course WF salad bar never disappoints! Let me know if you try the apple snack..it’s awesome!

  • Stephanie @ My Freckled Life February 26, 2014, 12:15 pm

    I’m always so envious when I see pictures of a Whole Foods Hot Bar meal! The closest Whole Foods is a good 1.5 hours away from me, so I literally haven’t been in years. YEARS! That’s just depressing!! So many good things!! All of your eats look delicious though, as per usual!

    • ClnEatingVegGrl February 27, 2014, 3:22 pm

      I totally understand. Before I moved to Omaha I was 3 hours away from the nearest one…talk about sad :(

  • Lauren @ ihadabiglunch February 26, 2014, 12:17 pm

    I’m liking the backwards style! It definitely changes things up.

    Your breakfast is nuts!! Avocado and jam? I’m a fan of the sweet/salty combo but this is taking it to a whole new level! haha

    • ClnEatingVegGrl February 27, 2014, 3:23 pm

      Haha, it is SO nuts, right? But also SO good!! Give it a try :)

  • Alexis @ Hummusapien February 26, 2014, 12:25 pm

    OKAY–I’m totally trying that microwaves apple and almond butter dealio! And the blackberry jam + avo combo sounds unreal! Love the backwards style :)

    • ClnEatingVegGrl February 27, 2014, 3:23 pm

      Both combinations are SO awesome. I am pretty sure you would definitely love them both. Let me know if you try ‘em out! :)

  • Nicole @ FruitnFitness February 26, 2014, 2:40 pm

    Okay I need to try that warm apple, nut butter and chocolate combination! Your full day of eats looks good. I have been eating popcorn every night, such a good snack! Is that the cotter BBQ stew?

      It is not, but I have made hers and it was fantastic so I definitely recommend it!

  • Amy @ Long Drive Journey February 27, 2014, 5:58 am

    Microwave apples are the bomb.com. It is amazing. They’re also good with whipped cream and a bunch of stuff that’s not so good for you, haha, but I like what you did with them!
