WIAW: March 5, 2014

in Other

Welcome to the first What I Ate Wednesday post of March!  If you have not figured it out, I am pretty much obsessed with the month of March.  Spring is right around the corner and, better yet, so is my birthday!  I hope I am not the only (crazy?) person out there who likes to celebrate their birthday month!  I think we should all do that!

Let’s kick off the celebration by joining in on the What I Ate Wednesday party, hosted by Jenn at Peas and Crayons!

What I Ate Wednesday this past Sunday!


WIAW 3514 2After a fun weekend in Des Moines with some of my old college roomies, I hit the road to head back to Omaha.  On the way, I ate a mixed bowl of cereal sans almond milk.  In the mix: Corn Flakes, Arrowhead Mills puffed kamut, Kashi Heart to Heart Nutty Chia Flax cereal, and Kashi Go Lean Original cereal.


WIAW 3514Once I made it back, I heated up some leftovers from Friday night’s dinner: spaghetti squash “pasta” with sauteed onions, red peppers, and spinach, marina sauce, and Italian seasoning.

Afternoon Snacks

WIAW 3514 4After my workout, I refueled with a green smoothie consisting of unsweetened vanilla almond coconut milk, chocolate Vega One, frozen banana, frozen cranberries, frozen raspberries, and lots of fresh spinach.

WIAW 3514 3I don’t think a Sunday afternoon is complete without my current favorite snack: warm diced apples, cinnamon, almond butter, and dairy-free chocolate chunks.


WIAW 3514 6Dinner was Kim’s Curried Vegetable Lentil Chili, which she shared as a guest post here a few weeks back.  I was so excited to finally be able to make it, and it did not disappoint.

WIAW 3514 5On the side I ate cooked mixed vegetables because for some odd reason I was really craving them.  Yes, I have weird cravings 😉

Evening Snacks

WIAW 102313 6Desserts for the night included fresh fruit…

WIAW 71013 2…and a baked sweet potato topped with maple almond butter.



Have a great Wednesday, everyone!  Go eat lots of green foods!

    I love that snack idea!! Sounds delicious!
    And I am jealous of the Spaghetti Squash – the season is over here, so I have to wait till fall again…..

      It sounds like you have a smart husband…and that you are smart too since you have decided to start celebrating birthday months also! 😉

    sans milk? I could never eat dry cereal 😛

    • ClnEatingVegGrl March 6, 2014, 7:20 am

      Haha, it is good if you have a good mixture!! 🙂

  • Jessie March 5, 2014, 8:55 pm

    I’m so happy you mentioned the apple with pb & chocolate snack bowl idea. I’ve been meaning to make one lately (subbing raisins for the chocolate) and just keep forgetting. Theres no way I can forget now since I wrote it down as a reminder to have for dessert after dinner LOL 🙂

      Haha, it’s okay… I have to write myself reminders ALL the time. I hope it worked and that you enjoyed your dessert! 🙂
