What I Ate Wednesday: January 27, 2016

in Other

While What I Ate Wednesday posts don’t happen every week around here anymore, I still love popping in and sharing a day of my eats every now and then.  From a fellow lover of peeking into others’ full day of eats, I hope you find it all as fascinating as I do! <– Or maybe I’m just weird like that.

What I Ate Wednesday: January 27, 2016| cleaneatingveggiegirl.comWhat I Ate Wednesday: January 27, 2016

What I Ate Wednesday: January 27, 2016| cleaneatingveggiegirl.comMy morning started out like it always does: with lots and lots of water.  I am really not a natural water-drinker, but I have found that carrying my Camelbak with me everywhere seems to help with staying hydrated.  I probably drank about half of this bottle prior to sitting down for breakfast.

What I Ate Wednesday: January 27, 2016| cleaneatingveggiegirl.comUm, how cute are these mini bananas?

I had no intention of buying mini bananas at the grocery store this week, but when three stores had zero ripe regular-sized bananas, this was the route I was forced to take.  You see, I had plans of making my Chocolate Banana Coconut Chia Pudding (which I obviously needed a ripe banana for), and I did not want to change those plans.  After several mini-tantrums (poor Jeremy), all was well in the world.  And not gonna lie, I kind of love them now that I have them!

What I Ate Wednesday: January 27, 2016| cleaneatingveggiegirl.comSaid chia pudding topped off with extra banana slices and sunflower seed butter.  There is nothing better than feeling like you are eating dessert for breakfast.

What I Ate Wednesday: January 27, 2016| cleaneatingveggiegirl.comLunch was somewhat of a hodgepodge from my fridge.  I reheated a baked Japanese sweet potato (my favorite) and topped it off with more sunflower seed butter and a few sprinkles of ground cinnamon.

What I Ate Wednesday: January 27, 2016| cleaneatingveggiegirl.comI also whipped up a green juice/smoothie in my Vitamix.  In the mix was filtered water, cucumber, zucchini, butter lettuce, ginger, lemon juice, green apple, and cilantro.  I think I was a bit overzealous with the ginger because it was a tad too spicy.  I obviously drank it anyways!

What I Ate Wednesday: January 27, 2016| cleaneatingveggiegirl.comMy matron of honor and I worked on a wedding craft for much of the afternoon.  I snacked on a few handfuls of organic baby carrots during breaks.  I am so excited for you to see what I made.  I am kind of in love with it!

What I Ate Wednesday: January 27, 2016| cleaneatingveggiegirl.comDinner was crazy delicious and inspired by an Instagram post that I featured on Sunday.  I made loaded parsnip fries with kalua pork, lettuce, nightshade-free guacamole, black olives, and green onions.  It was fabulous and will happen again.

What I Ate Wednesday: January 27, 2016| cleaneatingveggiegirl.comI convinced Jeremy to go to a University of Iowa gymnastics meet with me after dinner.  As someone who was very involved in gymnastics, tumbling, and dance growing up, I absolutely loved everything about it.

I arrived home hungry and snacked on my favorite sweet potato chips.  And just like that, a great day and a full day of yummy eats was in the books!

      Yes! I have made plantain nachos before and they were SO good, so it would definitely work with chips!

    Those bananas are ADORABLE! And um… I made chips last night with butternut squash, however I am officially no longer scared of sweet potatoes (long story) so I should give your fries a GO now too!

      Thank goodness you are a sweet potato eater now. They are too good not to eat! 😉

  • Katie @ Daily Cup of Kate January 27, 2016, 9:00 am

    Okay, what’s with the banana situation?! I also checked three different stores over the weekend and couldn’t find any! I ended up finding some at the gas station down the road…what?!

    • ClnEatingVegGrl January 27, 2016, 12:15 pm

      SO frustrating, right? I hate having to try to plan ahead just to have ripe bananas!! 🙁

  • Ashley@CookNourishBliss January 27, 2016, 9:15 am

    haha nope you’re not alone – I’m totally fascinated by what other people eat!!

    And that dinner …. gosh totally making me hungry for lunch and it’s only 10:15!!!

      It is THE BEST! I love, love, love it!

  • Morgan @ Morgan Manages Mommyhood January 27, 2016, 2:41 pm

    Oh man, that dinner though! I totally, agree, I love seeing sneak peeks at what people are eating! As for ripes, after forgetting to get a backup, I bought THREE bunches of unripe bananas to ripen them (they’re almost good, so noI just bought another today. I have a problem) We usually have at least 1 bunch ripening while we use the “good” ones, so that the rotation continues. It’s hard in the winter, though, since it’s so cold and they ripen soooo slow.

    • ClnEatingVegGrl January 27, 2016, 3:04 pm

      They do seem to ripen super slow during the winter! I apparently need to start investing in some backups 😉

  • Phoebe January 27, 2016, 2:53 pm

    mmmmmmmmm sweet potato chips….
    And love the chia pudding too! That is my most-eaten breakfast staple! Yum!

    • ClnEatingVegGrl January 27, 2016, 3:03 pm

      It is SO good!! It makes me feel like I am eating dessert every single time I eat it for breakfast 😀

  • Dani @ Dani California Cooks January 27, 2016, 4:01 pm

    Dinner looks delicious! Also, Nate and I are thinking of doing the Whole30 in February, and I have already pinned your chia seed pudding!

      Yay! I absolutely LOVE it and became obsessed during my Whole 30!

  • Cora January 27, 2016, 9:00 pm

    I love mini bananas!! For some reason I used to not like them, but then I travelled to Asia and learned that they taste just as darling as they look. That dinner – so creative!

    • ClnEatingVegGrl January 28, 2016, 9:42 am

      They are so cute… I will probably buy them more often now 😉

  • Kristy @ Southern In Law January 27, 2016, 10:32 pm

    Sugar bananas (the tiny ones) always remind me of tropical vacations as they’re often the only bananas that grow there! On our honeymoon in Bali I think I ate half of the island’s bananas as they were so so good! 😛

    The best thing I’ve eaten in the past week was probably homemade chicken pot pies last night! I’ve never had a chicken pot pie in my life, had no idea what I was making as I was putting it together – but somehow I managed to perfect them! (which is a miracle as Jesse is FUSSSSSSSSSSYYYYYY when it comes to recreating recipes :P)

      Chicken pot pie sounds AMAZING! I might have to try making a Paleo version one of these days 😀
