WIAW: May 14, 2014

in Other

Lots of 14’s in that title there ^^

You know I have a thing for fun number combinations, so May 14, 2014 sounds like a pretty appealing day.  Too bad 14 is not my lucky number.  I guess I will have to wait until 2026 for that to happen… only 12 more years! ;)

But since this is a fun numbers day and it is Wednesday, I should center this post around all good things.  Food is good, right?  Yes, let’s go with that!

In last week’s What I Ate Wednesday post, I was lazy and made one photo collage for you.  In all honesty, though, I really enjoyed the collage look.  This week I put a little bit more effort into the presentation and made you multiple collages.  Collages are fun, right?  I sure hope you enjoy them at least or I might be in trouble.  I’d sure like for you to stick around!

What I Ate Wednesday Last Saturday

Breakfast

WIAW 51414 2Breakfast was a two-parter as usual.  The first part was a deeeelicious cold green smoothie that I drank after my morning walk.  A couple of hours later I ate one of the best breakfasts that I have eaten in awhile.  It included a toasted whole wheat English muffin topped with a tasty pea/hummus mixture that I came up with and will be sharing with you soon.  On the side I ate a fried egg and cottage cheese.  I pretty much avoided cottage cheese for the last year since it is not vegan and there really aren’t any good substitutes.  But I got tired of being without it so it is back!

Lunch

cauliflower buffalo wingsOhhh my goodness, this was SO good!  Seriously.  And no, those are not buffalo wings.  But close!  I made cauliflower buffalo wings for the first time and loved them.  I’ll be posting more about these in the future.  I dipped them in ketchup since I did not have any ranch dressing, and I ate some roasted brussel sprouts on the side.

Dinner

DSC_0417Dinner was the Happy Herbivore’s Eggless Salad that I served on rice cakes with spinach.  I ate a dill pickle spear on the side, of course!

Snacks

WIAW 51414 3And finally, I snacked on all sorts of goodness throughout the day including: popcorn, a Granny Smith apple with almond butter, and carrots.  I pick out some darn good snacks, if I do say so myself.

WIAW generalMake sure you head over to Jenn’s blog for more What I Ate Wednesday posts!  Now go have yourself a great Wednesday!

      Haha! I’m glad that I am not the only “crazy” one out there ;)

    I have been meaning to do a cauliflower chicken wing/chicken nugget type thing and keep forgetting. I pin the recipes and then totally forget all about it!

      SAME with me and I finally did it… BEST decision ever. You need to try them!

  • Jessie May 14, 2014, 6:24 am

    Hummus & peas? Now that’s one brilliant idea! Dying to know the recipe. Please make it one of the first ones you share :]

    • ClnEatingVegGrl May 14, 2014, 11:57 am

      I will definitely be sharing it this month… Next week actually I think!

  • Amanda @ Diary of a Semi-Health Nut May 14, 2014, 7:51 am

    Foodie collages are the best! I actually learned about doing them from the queen of WIAW herself!

    I always think I could never be a vegetarian…but this post makes me think maybe I could. If you would write me meal plans. ;)

      You could SO do it, or at least Meatless Mondays. Veggies eat some darn good food. But yes, a meal plan would help. I have definitely learned a lot along the way!

  • Ashley May 14, 2014, 9:21 am

    Well you ate a lot of really tasty looking things on Saturday!! I have been meaning to try making cauliflower buffalo wings for the longest time … I need to do it! Excited to hear more about them!

      Yes!! You definitely need to do it. I was so mad at myself for waiting so long to make them!

  • Brittany May 14, 2014, 10:09 am

    YYUMMM to those rice cakes and cauliflower buffalo bites. SO much good food.

    • ClnEatingVegGrl May 14, 2014, 11:59 am

      You would DEFINITELY love them. I will try to share the recipe for them soon!!

  • Alexis @ Hummusapien May 14, 2014, 11:00 am

    Twinning again on the popcorn! You must try it drizzled with truffle oil (we got a little bottle at WF)…it’s insanity!!!

    • ClnEatingVegGrl May 14, 2014, 12:15 pm

      My eyes just got really big when I read this! That sounds amaaaazing!!!

  • Nicole @ FruitnFitness May 14, 2014, 11:15 am

    Ok all of your meals look fantastic! I can’t wait for the pea hummus and buffalo cauliflower recipe. I have been craving egg salad recently and your post makes me want it even more.

      You should definitely make yourself some!! Lucky for you, it is super easy to make :)

  • Jaclyn @ BumpSweat May 14, 2014, 12:45 pm

    I’ve been meaning to make the buffalo cauliflower, especially since my hubby’s a buffalo-sauce nut! You’ve inspired me :)

      It is SO good!! I’ll be sharing the link soon! I honestly think that meat-eaters will enjoy these. I know my boyfriend would!

  • Faith VanderMolen May 14, 2014, 5:26 pm

    I’ve been wanting to experiment more with peas. They seem to be the new way of getting protein into energy bars, etc. Avocado and peas together sounds great!

    • ClnEatingVegGrl May 14, 2014, 7:43 pm

      Peas are definitely one of my favorite veggies and the fact that they have as much protein in them as they do is super impressive!

  • Katie @ Daily Cup of Kate May 14, 2014, 6:29 pm

    I am obsessed with that popcorn lately…so light and airy!

    • ClnEatingVegGrl May 14, 2014, 7:31 pm

      It is amaaaazing! I will never tire of it!

  • Alice Brody May 16, 2014, 3:04 am

    I am absolutely fascinated by that cauliflower buffalo wings. I am trying to transition from a 100% carnivore to a full-on veggie. In my 6 months of transitioning, I am now a semi-meat eater – a “chicken-tarian”, if you will. I’d love to see the recipe of this. Thanks for sharing!

    • ClnEatingVegGrl May 16, 2014, 4:53 pm

      I will be posting about them soon! They are so good! I bet you will love them :)
