What I Ate on Christmas Day

in Other

What I Ate WednesdayHappy Wednesday and What I Ate Wednesday, y’all!  I am sticking to my “minimal technology use over my Christmas vacation” plan, but wanted to pop in quickly to share What I Ate on Christmas Day!

wiaw christmasBreakfast was a mixed bowl of cereal, including: Kashi Go Lean, puffed kamut, Love Grown Honey Power O’s, and Whole Foods 365 Whole Wheat Flakes.  I topped it with unsweetened almond milk.

wiaw christmas 3Unwrapping presents must have made me hungry because I snacked on some kale chips…

wiaw christmas 2…and a frosted sugar cookie between breakfast and lunch.

wiaw christmas 4At 1:00, we all sat down to Christmas dinner at my parents’ house.  I ate vegan lentil loaf, cheesy potato casserole, green bean casserole, fruit salad, and a roll.  I went back for seconds of the potatoes and fruit salad.

wiaw christmas 5After my tummy settled a bit, I snacked on a couple of cookies and Oreo balls.  Does anyone else agree that Oreo balls are one of the best desserts ever?

wiaw christmas 6On Christmas night, Jeremy and I went to his mom’s to celebrate.  My dinner consisted of a couple of plates of snacks and appetizers.  I determined that I apparently really like chips.

wiaw christmas 7I finished the night off with a slice of the vegan chocolate pie (which I de-veganized with whipped topping) that I brought.  It was so. good.

It may not have been the healthiest of days… but I try not to be too hard on myself during the holidays.  I eat healthy 90% of the time, so a few a lot of cookies does not mean much in the grand scheme of things.  I hope you ate good during your holiday celebrations, too!

    That cheese potato casserole sounds great. Do you have the recipe? Or is it a family secret?

      My mom made it and has been making it for years. I'm not sure if it is a "secret" or not ;) Maybe I'll have to get it posted here on the blog! ;)

    Your Christmas dinner looks awesome! :] It kinda reminds me of my church meals for potluck! :P (My church is pretty much all vegetarian, haha.) I definitely agree with you on the Oreo balls. <3 They are glorious! Farrah recently posted...2015 GoalsMy Profile

      Wow, apparently I need to come visit your church! It sounds like an awesome place!

    Everything looks great! Kale chips and sugar cookies is a great combo!
    • ClnEatingVegGrl December 31, 2014, 4:15 pm
      Totally random, right? But they definitely hit the spot. It was a nice balance between healthy and extremely unhealthy ;)

    That is the cutest little cookie, haha!

      Isn't it? It was almost too pretty to eat... almost! ;)

    I need to go to Trader Joes and try those Kale Chips. We just had one built. Vegan pie... that is new to me. Looks good.
    • ClnEatingVegGrl December 31, 2014, 4:17 pm
      Yes, you definitely need to stock up on their kale chips. That is one of my FAVORITE things to buy from TJ's!

    I never thought I'd say this, but that plate of veggies looks SO good. Actually, all of it does. I tried kale chips once and wasn't a fan. Maybe I should pick up some from Trader Joe's this time. Or make my own. Yum!
    • ClnEatingVegGrl December 31, 2014, 4:53 pm
      Ahh, bummer on the kale chips. I LOVE making my own and that TJ's version is definitely delicious when I feel like splurging. You should definitely give them another try!

    Vegan chocolate pie sounds so yummy! And I have been hooked on sugar cookies ever since Christmas....terrible!
    • ClnEatingVegGrl December 31, 2014, 4:54 pm
      The pie is SO good. You should definitely make it! I hear you on the cookies and sweets. But hey, the holidays only come around once per year!
