WIAW: January 23, 2013

in Other

It’s Wednesday!  And more importantly, it is Wednesday night, which means that the work week is more than halfway over.  We are almost there people.  Keep on pushing through! 🙂

And now that I am finished with giving you a pep talk for the rest of the week…let’s get to the eats, shall we?

WIAW january 2013







What I Ate Wednesday


WIAW 12313 2






Breakfast started out with two pieces of toasted organic sprouted Ezekiel 100% whole grain bread- one smeared with almond butter and sprinkled with cinnamon and the other topped with TJ’s cranberry apple butter.

I paired my toast with a bowl of Greek vanilla yogurt topped with fresh strawberries and blueberries.  It was a darn tasty way to start the day!


My mid-morning snack at work was the usual…a banana!

For today’s lunch I packed a bowl of “No Chicken” Noodle Chickpea Soup topped with crushed saltine crackers.  And yes, this is a picture from my dinner last night…trust me, this is much prettier than a picture of my plastic container at work would have been ;).  I love this soup every time that I make it.  It is absolutely perfect for the frigid temperatures here in the Midwest right now, too.

For dessert I ate a Red Delicious apple…and a very oddly shaped apple, at that!

Before heading to the gym after work, I snacked on a Cherry Pie Larabar.  I love these bars!  They are so tasty and the ingredients lists are always fantastic.  This bar only contained three ingredients: dates, almonds, and unsweetened cherries.  Now that is impressive!

As I normally do on Wednesdays, I planned my dinner using the Happy Herbivore Abroad cookbook.  Tonight I prepared two dishes: Masoor Dal and Saag.  Both are Indian dishes (I am currently obsessed with Indian food), and contained two of my favorite foods right now: lentils and spinach.  I know, they do not look very pretty…but trust me, they were good!


Snacks this evening included/will include:

Carrots and celery with hummus
Fresh blackberries
TBD: Either microwave kettle corn or lentils chips.  I haven’t decided just yet!

    I made the chickpea noodle soup recently for the second time. I love that soup. I made the corn chowder for this week and really like it also.

    Yum! Your eats look delish! I love that flavor LARABAR! I just tried the Key Lime Pie yesterday for the first time and it was so good!

    That's a good idea to eat a pb and jelly in two pieces- makes it last longer :)

    Red delicious... mmmm! My favorite apples right now are Pink Ladies. :)

      Pink Ladies are so good! It's funny because I never used to like Red Delicious apples at all. But lately, I have been loving them. Let's just say, I really don't discriminate when it comes to apples!

    I've been loving Ezekiel bread lately!!!

    Yum that Indian food sounds so good! I recently made a red lentil and squash curry stew 3 times in a row....You should post the saag recipe, I'm curious! :)
    • Hannah @ cleaneatingveggiegirl January 25, 2013, 7:05 am
      That stew sounds awesome. Indian food is so good and super vegetarian/vegan friendly, so I love it! I do not post recipes that come directly from cookbooks (just for copyright purposes), however, this saag recipe happens to be on her website, which you can find here: http://happyherbivore.com/recipe/red-lentil-dal-2/ It's your lucky day! ;)
