WIAW: November 21, 2012 + A Last-Minute Thanksgiving Breakfast Recipe

in Breakfast, Other

With the Thanksgiving holiday tomorrow and a very busy day/week in progress, this week’s “What I Ate Wednesday” post is going to be a bit different.  Rather than documenting what I eat today (there is literally no spare time in my day today to do this! 🙁 ), I will highlight a few of my favorite meals that I have eaten in the past few days.  And man, let me tell you…there have been some good eats!















Breakfast on Monday was an absolutely delicious wafflewich!  I stuffed one sunny-side up egg w/ black pepper, avocado slices, and salsa between two toasted Kashi whole grain waffles.







Isn’t she a pretty little thing?  And oh, so yummy and healthy!







I paired my wafflewich sandwich creation with a bowl of Greek vanilla yogurt topped with fresh blueberries.  I seriously cannot get over how delicious and satisfying this breakfast was.  It definitely hit the spot.








Monday’s lunch may have been even more delicious than Monday’s breakfast.  I prepared Roasted Eggplant, Tomato, and Feta Cheese Stacks.  So stinkin’ good!!  Don’t worry…I will be posting this recipe soon 🙂 .








Tuesday night’s dinner was another recipe from The Happy Herbivore: Fire-Roasted Chana Masala.  I followed the recipe exactly, except I tossed in some chopped spinach to make the dish a bit thicker and healthier.  I served the chana masala over a bed of whole brown rice.







All mixed together.


Recent snacks have been the usual.  Things like carrots with hummus, apples, fresh fruit, nuts, and a new favorite of mine: lightly salted whole brown rice cakes topped with a Weight Watchers (or Laughing Cow) garlic and herb cheese wedge and blackberry jam or grape jelly.  So good!!


Finally, if you are looking for a last-minute, quick, and easy recipe to contribute to tomorrow’s Thanksgiving breakfast, check out the Happy Herbivore’s recipe for Maple-Kissed Pumpkin Muffins.  I made these this morning, and by the taste of the batter I would say that they are going to be quite tasty!

      Well I can't take all of the credit for that because I saw the idea on some other blogs...I just changed up the toppings to my liking. It was good. I definitely recommend giving it a try!
