WIAW: March 13, 2013

in Other

Am I the only one who finds today’s date really cool?  I mean just look at it: 3-13-13.  I’d say if your lucky number is “3” then today is your day! 😉  Today might also be your day if you are, like me, super excited that we have made it more than halfway through the work week!  Oh, and I am also super excited about the fact that it is Wednesday and I get to share with all of you my day’s eats!  That’s right…What I Ate Wednesday has rolled around once again!

WIAW MARCH 13

 

 

 

 

As I mentioned last week, this month’s theme is “Going Green.”  I did not do very well at the green thing with last week’s eats, but I promised that I would make up for it today.  Now let’s see just how well I did!

Breakfast

WIAW 31313 2

 

 

 

 

 

Breakfast started off with a sweet and savory waffle-wich consisting of 2 Kashi blueberry waffles, 1 Laughing Cow garlic and herb cheese wedge, blackberry jam, and a sunny-side up egg.

I put the two waffles together to make the waffle-wich sandwich and ate a sliced Golden Delicious apple on the side.

Mid-Morning Snack

WIAW 3613 3

 

 

 

 

 

Per usual, the banana made an appearance!

Lunch

WIAW 31313 3

 

 

 

 

 

Today’s lunch was centered around this giant salad consisting of field greens lettuce, spinach, carrots, mushrooms, tomatoes, broccoli, orange peppers, red onions, and radishes.  I topped the salad with a yogurt-based ranch dressing.

I paired my salad with 2 Wasa Wholesome Wheat cracker breads (um, yum!)…

WIAW 31313 5

 

 

 

 

 

…and celery with PB2 peanut butter.

Snack

wiaw 13013 3

 

 

 

 

 

I snacked on some almonds before heading to the gym for my workout.

Dinner

WIAW 31313 meatloaf

 

 

 

 

 

Dinner was an awfully tasty meal!  I ate two slices of Mexican Vegetarian “Meatloaf” (recipe to come!) topped with a little bit of sriracha sauce.  On the side I enjoyed some delicious roasted asparagus.

Snacks

Tonight’s snacks have and will consist of:

roasted parsnips and radish chips
cooked green peas
fresh cantaloupe
air-popped popcorn

All in all, it has been a GOOD day of eats! 🙂

So how did I do with the “green” theme this week?  Total green count: 7 (apple, lettuce/spinach, broccoli, celery, zucchini in the “meatloaf,” asparagus, peas).  Pretty darn good, if I do say so myself!

    I know better than to read your blog when I am hungry! But I do it anyway. And now I want that breakfast. Your combinations are amazing.
  • Leigha March 13, 2013, 8:50 pm
    I was thinking about the date today! Your eats were pretty delicious today. I'm jealous!
  • Erin March 13, 2013, 9:03 pm
    I used to eat that breakfast sandwich when I was pregnant! Literally the exact thing except I would just use sliced muenster or provolone! Sooo good!
  • carlyjg March 13, 2013, 10:59 pm
    I love wafflewiches! PB & J is my fave combo! The waffles get so crispy and crunchy. YUM!
  • Greta March 14, 2013, 12:24 am
    OMG! I'm craving your breakfast like right now!! I love eggs! In any way, but I'm so lazy so I usually boil them. I have to cook some this morning with some bread! Thank you for inspiring! ;)
  • Khushboo Thadani (@KhushbooThadani) March 14, 2013, 1:15 am
    Love your breakfast! Cheese, yolk + jam is a killer combo...even better as a wafflewich!
  • Michelle @ Eat Move Balance March 14, 2013, 4:14 am
    Being a numbers dork (I'm a math teacher), 3/13/13 was very cool! :) What a delicious day of eats--nice!
  • chasingchels March 14, 2013, 5:46 am
    Mmm nicely done on the greens girl ;) and that breakfast looks amazing!! I love waffles with fun toppings :)
  • Kelly @ Hidden Fruits and Veggies March 14, 2013, 7:19 am
    Woah woah woah. garlic and herb cheese + jelly? That sounds terrifying. I mixed a swiss laughing cow and strawberry jelly this morning and it was amazing... but I'm not sure garlic and blackberries can be friends... is this an amazing flavor combo I'm missing out on?
    • cleaneatingveggiegirl March 14, 2013, 2:35 pm
      I pretty much any of the flavors of Laughing Cow cheese with jam or jelly, but I think that the garlic and herb is my favorite. Give it a try! ;)
  • Ang @ Nutty for Life March 14, 2013, 7:21 am
    What's blackberry jam like? That sounds so interesting!
    • cleaneatingveggiegirl March 14, 2013, 2:35 pm
      It is really tasty. It definitely has a sweeter taste to it as compared to grape jelly, for example.
  • Nicole @ FruitNFitness March 14, 2013, 8:07 am
    Your breakfast looks so fun! The salad also looks great, I love big salads with lots of veggies.
    • cleaneatingveggiegirl March 14, 2013, 2:36 pm
      I am definitely one of those people who CRAVES salads. I always feel so weird when I say that!
  • Jen@Twenty-Something&Starving March 14, 2013, 8:21 am
    Good job with the green theme!!! I'm so intrigued by that breakfast sandwich...I may be experimenting soon.
  • Alex @ Cookie Dough Katzen March 14, 2013, 8:32 am
    I think you did great too on eating greens! Also I didn't even notice yesterdays date but probably for the best- 13 is unlucky ;)
  • Her Happy Balance March 14, 2013, 10:04 am
    Using a waffle as a sandwich is a great idea! And yes, I totally noticed the date. I also thought 3-11-13 was pretty good because it's a palindrome.
  • aftertheivyleague March 14, 2013, 10:47 am
    Definitely did an awesome job getting in those greens! I love the wafflewich too, one of my favorites that I sadly haven't had in awhile! Gotta fix that tomorrow morning.
  • cookingfortheotherhalf March 14, 2013, 12:13 pm
    I want that breakfast! I'm totally making it tomorrow.
  • Alisha's @ Alisha's Appetite March 14, 2013, 12:18 pm
    Your breakfast combo just blew me away! love it! sweet and savory will always have my <3
  • Lillian @ Seize the Latte March 14, 2013, 1:45 pm
    I'd been thinking about the date yesterday too -- I randomly found myself thinking "Oooh, wouldn't it be cool to have a baby on a numerically awesome date like 3-13-13?" ...As if anyone could even remotely plan for that. Aaah, my brain is a scary place sometimes. On a less ridiculous note, your salad looks absolutely gorgeous, and I love the sweet and savory breakfast combination. Well done!
    • cleaneatingveggiegirl March 14, 2013, 3:47 pm
      That would be so cool to have a baby born on that date or to get married on that date. It sure would be easy to remember, too! ;)
  • o2befitmomly March 14, 2013, 2:26 pm
    They have a new wasa crisp n light???? ahh i need to get those, I love wasa
  • consciouscravings March 14, 2013, 2:33 pm
    Seriously can't wait for that Mexican meatloaf. It looks amazing. I am definitely going to take that recipe and make me some asap!
  • kimathungryhealthygirl March 14, 2013, 2:36 pm
    Way to go one eating green!! I love the look of that waffle egg sandwich....totally trying that soon!
  • Sarah@ Making Thyme for Health March 14, 2013, 3:16 pm
    The texture of your meatloaf looks very impressive! Can't wait to see the recipe. I noticed that too about today's date. It sounds important or something. :)
  • kaityscooking March 14, 2013, 8:28 pm
    love that breakfast combo !! def gotta give it a try..and your dinner looks so good i cant wait to see that recipe!
  • Bec March 15, 2013, 3:35 pm
    I think you did a grat job of eating greens - wish I could do that haha. Also, a sweet jam with eggs? I've never tried that.
  • ahealthyhappyhome March 17, 2013, 11:18 pm
    I have got to try the roasted radish chips sometime. Sounds soo good! I'm sad that all the winter root vegetables and squash are slowly dwindling away. I love winter veggies but... I'm pretty excited for Spring/Summer produce!
