What I Ate Wednesday: June 17, 2015

in Other

This What I Ate Wednesday is going to be short and sweet because, to be honest, I have been running around like a chicken with my head cut off this week.  I got back from a weekend in Iowa on Monday afternoon, have been working like a busy bee and squeezing in some friends time, all while getting ready for the thing I have been looking forward to for months now: a week in Colorado!  Saturday can hurry up and get here any day now.

Instead of dragging this out any longer (because I still have several posts to write for you for next week!), let’s get right to the eats:

What I Ate WednesdayWhat I Ate Wednesday: June 17, 2015

banana_almond_butter_eggsThis particular day happens to be from Sunday when I was back home in Iowa for a friend’s wedding.  My day began with one of my current favorite breakfasts: a sliced whole banana topped with creamy almond butter + 2 whole eggs fried in coconut oil.  Lately I have been loving adding some mustard to my eggs!

turkey_sweet_potato_fries_peasI ate lunch around 1:00.  I baked up some sweet potato fries that I served alongside oven roasted turkey and peas.  Carbs, protein, and veggies all in one meal?  Yes please!

organic_appleIn the afternoon I snacked on an organic apple.

Synergy_guava_goddess_kombuchaI also drank my favorite kombucha flavor: Guava Goddess from Synergy.  It was just what I needed to brighten up the rainy day.

grilled_turkey_burgerDinner was by far my favorite meal of the day.  I always take advantage of my parents’ grill whenever I am home.  We grilled up burgers and brats.  I chose a turkey burger that I served on a lettuce “bun.”  I topped it off with onions, tomatoes, avocado, and yellow mustard.  On the side I ate grilled asparagus, cantaloupe, and plantain chips.

popcornI ended off the night with one of my favorite treats: popcorn.  I am taking advantage of eating it as frequently as possible since I will be without it for a while once I start my Whole 30 in July.

    My favorite thing to grill would probably have to be either shrimp or veggies (zucchini, onions, corn, mushrooms). Turkey burgers are pretty good though, I like to give mine an Indian flare with lots of spices. Hope you had fun at your friends wedding! :)

      Oh, I love that idea to use Indian spices in turkey burgers. I'll have to try that!

      They seriously do. One of my favorite things about summer is definitely having the ability to grill. Grilled food is almost always healthy and delicious!

      It is an addiction... and one that I'm not sad about!

      Do it!! Lately I have been loving topping them with either yellow mustard or Annie's makes a horseradish mustard that is SO good!

    I have always wanted to visit Colorado! On my bucket list! How fun that your trip is coming up! I have gotten hooked on popcorn the last two weeks ... I haven't had it in forever and now apparently I'm making up for lost time :) Ashley recently posted...Blueberry Corn Panzanella with Maple Chipotle DressingMy Profile

      You most definitely need to go to CO! This will be my third time there in four years... I obviously love it ;) And yay for popcorn! I'm telling you. It never ever gets old to me.

    As a new "pseudo-paleo" eater, I'm happy to have found your blog via blog love. Gave you a tweet as well!
    • ClnEatingVegGrl June 17, 2015, 4:51 pm
      Thanks so much, Kristin! I am just now diving into the paleo style of eating (I'm planning a Whole 30 for July), so it has been a fun and interesting journey so far. I'm glad you stopped by. Don't be a stranger!
  • Heather@hungryforbalance June 17, 2015, 4:15 pm
    Veggies on the grill are my favorite, especially summer squash, mushrooms, and sweet potatoes. Heather@hungryforbalance recently posted...WIAW: Day in the lifeMy Profile

      I have never grilled sweet potatoes, but now you have me REALLY wanting to!
  • Katie @ Daily Cup of Kate June 17, 2015, 7:43 pm
    I think I missed wine and craft beer the most on the Whole30! I have never had that flavor of kombucha! Katie @ Daily Cup of Kate recently posted...Madison Summer Bucket ListMy Profile

      I can totally see how that will be. I'm getting used to the whole beer thing (other than the occasional gluten-free version), but not have ANY alcohol will be a bit of a challenge!

    Mmm burgers & brats I would have had a nice sampling of EVERYTHING! LOL! GiGi Eats recently posted...Letting the Inside, Out: Fun Facts About The Movie, Inside Out My Profile
