What I Ate Wednesday: January 6, 2016

in Other

It’s the first Wednesday of January, and I say we celebrate with a What I Ate Wednesday look at a day of Paleo eats (via my iPhone)!

What I Ate Wednesday: January 6, 2016| cleaneatingveggiegirl.comWhat I Ate Wednesday: January 6, 2016

What I Ate Wednesday: January 6, 2016| cleaneatingveggiegirl.comThis has been my favorite breakfast as of lately.  I essentially sautéed collard greens (I often use kale) with veggies and a chopped Epic bar.  It is the best thing ever.  I love it so much that I am thinking about doing a whole post dedicated to it.  Stay tuned!

What I Ate Wednesday: January 6, 2016| cleaneatingveggiegirl.comShortly after breakfast, my dad and I stuck a turkey into the oven to roast.  The turkey came free when we bought our Christmas ham.  And since we loved the brined and roasted turkey on Thanksgiving so much, we figured we might as well make it again.  Let the holidays continue!

What I Ate Wednesday: January 6, 2016| cleaneatingveggiegirl.comThe turkey was done just in time for lunch.  I paired a few slices of it with leftover broccoli and diced yams roasted in coconut oil and cinnamon.

What I Ate Wednesday: January 6, 2016| cleaneatingveggiegirl.com…and an original kombucha.  It had been a little while since I enjoyed a bottle of kombucha, so I was happy to have it back in my life.

What I Ate Wednesday: January 6, 2016| cleaneatingveggiegirl.comSo sorry for the dark picture, but this is a perfect example of the awful lighting at my parents’ house!  Dinner was leftover turkey, leftover sweet potatoes, and green cabbage sautéed in coconut oil and seasoned with sea salt, garlic powder, onion powder, and ginger.

I finished off the night with a handful or two of plantain chips.  I am starting to think it isn’t a normal day unless plantains are involved!

Do you think I ate enough veggies on this day?  Oh, probably! 😉

    The turkey is beautiful. We should have throughout the year!
    I love your breakfast and as I am considering starting the whole 30 soon, I will keep it in mind.

      It would be a GREAT Whole 30 breakfast!! I highly recommend it!

    Your breakfast sounds so awesome! And I love turkey leftovers! Even though we weren’t going thanksgiving at our house, I grabbed our free grocery store turkey and I’m waiting for the ‘perfect’ time to use it, AKA when I know I’ll be super busy and need lots of leftovers!

      Yes! That is the perfect idea. I already want to make another, and hope to get into the habit of doing so.. not just around the holidays.

    I love that veggie-heavy breakfast! I’ve never tried an Epic bar, but sounds interesting!

      It took me a few tries to like them, but now I am OBSESSED! The pork/bacon bar is my fave!

      Kombucha is so seriously delicious. I would drink it every single day if I could.. that might get expensive though 😉

  • Liz @ I Heart Vegetables January 6, 2016, 1:29 pm

    Yum! I haven’t had kombucha in awhile but I love it!

      It is the best! I honestly crave that far more than I do any other beverage!

  • Tara | Treble in the Kitchen January 6, 2016, 2:16 pm

    Looks like tasty food to me! 🙂 I haven’t tried either of the bars you mentioned but they look mighty tasty!

      They are SO good! It’s crazy to think they only have 2 ingredients in them. You should definitely give them a try!
