What I Ate Wednesday: May 27, 2015

in Other

So it may feel like Tuesday, but I am excited to tell you that it is not!  It is Wednesday!  That’s right, veggie-loving friends.  We already made it to hump-day and it feels like the week just started.  This girl is not complaining.

Like every other Wednesday, I am linking up with Jenn from Peas and Crayons for What I Ate Wednesday.  Let’s take a peek into a day of my weekend eats.

What I Ate WednesdayWhat I Ate Wednesday: May 27, 2015

breakfast_sandwichMy breakfast on Saturday morning did not exactly go as planned.  Remember when I purchased that super expensive coconut flour paleo bread?  I was pumped to try it out in an egg and vegan cheese breakfast sandwich to fuel me for my Pilates Fusion class that morning.  Except it tasted downright awful.  Seriously.  It was so bad that I had to spit it out.  So instead, I ate the fried egg and cheese- sans bread.

apple_pie_larabarNaturally, one egg and a slice of vegan cheese was not going to be enough to keep me full for the next two and a half hours.  And it was most definitely not enough to fuel me through a workout.  So I warmed up an apple pie Larabar and topped it off with a bit of crunchy almond butter.  Ahh, much better!

plantain_nachosMy workout was at 9:45.  After the 25 minute drive home and some blog work, I sat down to a delicious plate of plantain nachos for lunch.  Maybe I’ll write up a whole post dedicated to these nachos.  They deserve it.

green_smoothieAfter a rare afternoon nap, my stomach was growling again.  I whipped up a green smoothie with unsweetened vanilla almond milk, chocolate Vega One (<– affiliate link), almond butter, frozen banana, frozen blueberries, frozen zucchini, and frozen spinach.  It was super cold and super filling.

salad WIAWDinner was eaten around 6:30 and was a humongous salad.  In the mix was Romaine lettuce, carrots, orange peppers, radishes, green onions, cucumbers, raisins, crumbled grain-free tortilla chips, and homemade ranch dressing.  I am crushing on salads big-time lately, and I am not mad about it.

vegan_raspberry_cheezcakeI finished my night off with a sweet treat: a slice of Raspberry Tofu Cheezcake from Veestro.  Apparently I let it thaw out in the fridge a bit too long because it didn’t exactly hold its shape.  I could have cared less, though.  It was deeeelicious!  Seriously, you guys, you would never ever guess this was made with tofu.  I am so sad all of my cheezcake treats from Veestro are gone now.

While this particular day didn’t exactly start out on a high note on the food front, I cannot complain about how the rest of the day went.  You win some, you lose some.  Thank goodness most of my food choices were winners.

What is your current food obsession?

    I can't decide if it's good news or bad news when a crazy-expensive food turns out to be gross -- at least now it was a one time purchase and your grocery bill wont skyrocket? Silver lining! Kelly @ Hidden Fruits and Veggies recently posted...Green Vinaigrette + Eating more greensMy Profile

      That is a great way of looking at it, Kelly! If I had LOVED it, my credit card would have HATED me for it ;)

    Yay for WIAW! I'm so happy to be part of the linkup with you. Your eats looks soooo good - I must try something like plantain nachos. I love plantains when they're not sweet (salty all the way!) and those look delish. I'm obsessing over sweet potatoes right now. Can't get enough of them!

      YES! Salty (not sweet) plantains are the best! You should definitely give the nachos a try!
  • Alyssa @ Renaissancerunnergirl May 27, 2015, 8:28 am
    I love those enormous salads! They fill you up, are healthy, colorful, and leave room for dessert :) Alyssa @ Renaissancerunnergirl recently posted...WIAW #12: Brain FoodMy Profile

      Yes to ALL of those... especially the dessert part ;)

    Gah that cheesecake!!!!!! Seriously, and it's made of tofu?! Whoa! Great day of eats, Hannah! Thanks for linking up Happy WIAW! Arman @ thebigmansworld recently posted...No Bake White Chocolate Macadamia Nut CookiesMy Profile

      It is crazy what you can do with tofu! It made the cheesecake super duper creamy, which I LOVED!
  • Molly May 27, 2015, 8:52 am
    I will have to use your plantain nachos for inspiration. I bought a bag of plantain chips from Trader Joe's thinking they would be slightly sweet and was disappointed, so they have been sitting in my pantry ever since because I didn't know what to do with them.
    • ClnEatingVegGrl May 27, 2015, 8:59 am
      Oh my goodness, I LOVE that they are salty and not sweet. But you definitely need a more savory way to eat them. If all else fails, dip them in salsa and guac. I promise it is good!
  • Liz @ I Heart Vegetables May 27, 2015, 8:52 am
    Such a bummer about the bread!!! I hate when I get excited to try something new and it turns out to be a flop :( At least the rest of your meals sound awesome!
    • ClnEatingVegGrl May 27, 2015, 8:59 am
      Yes! The day could only go up from there ;) And I supposed it's a good thing that I will not be addicted to $11 bread... looking on the bright side!
  • Shann Eva May 27, 2015, 9:00 am
    I want the nachos right now! Yum! The salad also looked great. thank you for sharing...now I have some new healthy food ideas. Shann Eva recently posted...Eating and MissingMy Profile

      I'm so glad you found some new ideas! I hope you enjoy them as much as I do :)
  • Rebecca @ Strength and Sunshine May 27, 2015, 9:18 am
    Ahahahaha! I literally Loled about the bread :P I never tried it, but I always saw it in health food stores and at Whole Foods and ALMOST bought it so many times!
    • ClnEatingVegGrl May 27, 2015, 1:19 pm
      Well DON'T do it!! Unless you are really into cardboard/grainy/gross food ;)
  • Joanna @Makingmine May 27, 2015, 9:58 am
    Oh no! Sorry the bread was a bust - the good news is you have one less expensive item on your shopping list! The plantain nachos are my have from this round-up!
    • ClnEatingVegGrl May 27, 2015, 1:21 pm
      Yes! My credit card is very happy about that ;)
  • Christine @ I Hate Running May 27, 2015, 10:18 am
    I've never thought to substitute chips with plantain chips before. It seems absolutely amazing, I'll have to try it out! Christine @ I Hate Running recently posted...What I Ate Wednesday: Managing Two Workouts a DayMy Profile

      It is seriously SO good! You MUST try it!
  • Erin @ Her Heartland Soul May 27, 2015, 10:32 am
    Mmm that dessert looks so yummy! And I would love a post on those nachos! I'm really curious about the chips!
    • ClnEatingVegGrl May 27, 2015, 1:22 pm
      They are amaaaazing! I'll have to write something up because I think everyone should eat them!
  • Kelly @ Kelly Runs For Food May 27, 2015, 11:19 am
    Love that big salad! I just got back from vacation, and I'm always craving big salads after a trip. It's like my system just knows it needs to reset itself! Kelly @ Kelly Runs For Food recently posted...Post-vacation meals {WIAW}My Profile
    • ClnEatingVegGrl May 27, 2015, 1:23 pm
      Isn't it great how smart our bodies are? I almost inevitably start craving salads about halfway through my vacations. It's like my body's way of saying... "wait, where is the good stuff?" ;)

    I LOVE lara bars! And that smoothie looks AMAZING! Lauren Allen recently posted...Greek Chicken Kebabs with Tzatziki sauceMy Profile

      Larabars are SO good! I love that they are always coming out with new and creative flavors too!
  • sue May 27, 2015, 2:50 pm
    Love those larbars and so useful to have one tucked in your bag just in case hunger strikes. All the other food looks delish. I was introduced to plantain chips in NY at Empanada Mamas and loved them with my guacamole. I wish more places would give that option.

      Let's start a petition to have all restaurants sure plantain chips with guac!! ;)
  • Julia @ Lord Still Loves Me May 27, 2015, 5:57 pm
    I always am astonished at how quickly the shorter weeks fly by. I am right there with ya, feeling like it is Tuesday. I love being reminded that we are farther along than what I previously thought. What a bummer your paleo bread turned out to be less-than pleasant! However, your lunch looks scrumptious. I have never had plantain chips but I think I could get behind them. Current food obsession: Clam chowder! Julia @ Lord Still Loves Me recently posted...WIAW: I Love Being HomeMy Profile
    • ClnEatingVegGrl May 28, 2015, 8:46 am
      I had not tried plantain chips until a few weeks ago, but now I am HOOKED. You MUST try them!
  • Alex @ The Zen Kat May 27, 2015, 6:20 pm
    I can't argue with a post dedicated to nachos. Current obsession, always!
    • ClnEatingVegGrl May 28, 2015, 8:48 am
      YES! I'm glad we are on the same page ;)
  • katie May 27, 2015, 10:10 pm
    I love seeing what other people eat! I am especially digging that Mexican dish - what a fab idea! xo katie // a touch of teal
    • ClnEatingVegGrl May 28, 2015, 8:49 am
      It was my favorite thing that day... though the cheezcake was pretty darn good too! It can be hard to choose favorites sometimes ;)
  • lindsay Cotter May 28, 2015, 7:01 am
    you're killing me with those nachos. I gotta try them soon. great idea!
    • ClnEatingVegGrl May 28, 2015, 8:50 am
      YES! You NEEEEEED them. As you can tell, I am pretty passionate about plantain nachos ;)
  • Emily @SinfulNutrition May 28, 2015, 10:31 am
    This post is full of "why didn't I think of that?!"...ness. AKA heating up a larabar or making nachos out of plantain chips. AWESOME! :D Emily @SinfulNutrition recently posted...  WIAW: Is That A Flower Or A Bug?My Profile
    • ClnEatingVegGrl May 28, 2015, 11:21 am
      You definitely need to give both a try. I have a feeling you will like them! Larabars are good, but they are amazing when they taste like they came right out of the oven!
  • Dani @ DaniCaliforniaCooks May 28, 2015, 12:22 pm
    LOL, yeah, sometimes those bread substitutes just don't do the trick. My food obsession recently has been breakfast burrito bowls for breakfast - eggs, avo, black beans, quinoa/brown rice, and salsa!

      The plantain nachos are ridiculously good! You should give them a try!

    Holy cow that cheezecake....get me a fork girl!!

      It was SO good! I am so sad that all of my Veestro desserts are gone :(
