Today is Wednesday…Wednesday, March 20th to be exact! Which also means that it is my dad’s birthday! So, I must give a birthday shout out to him :).
Now I am pretty much wordless tonight, so let’s just get right to the eats, shall we?
What I Ate Wednesday
I headed into work one hour early at 7:00 a.m. this morning, so I decided to take my breakfast on the go. While hard at work, I ate a bowl of cereal containing Kashi GoLean Original cereal, Cascadian Farms Cinnamon Crunch cereal, and Arrowhead Mills Puffed Corn cereal. I topped my cereal with unsweetened vanilla almond milk, and ate a mandarin orange on the side.
My banana was eaten later in the morning as my mid-morning snack!
Lunch consisted of leftovers from Monday night’s dinner: Aloo Matar from the Happy Herbivore Abroad cookbook, which I served over a bed of cauliflower “rice” and topped with a bit of sriracha sauce.
I also ate a Red Delicious apple on the side. And it was just that…delicious!
I left work at 3:00 today to go become an “official” resident of Nebraska. I now have the driver’s license and license plates to prove it, too! I am not quite sure how I feel about this, though. But don’t worry… I will always be an Iowan at heart :).
After my fun adventure at the DMV (hah…not!), I needed a little snack before doing some yoga. I ate three Wasa cracker breads topped with PB2 peanut butter and a sprinkle of cinnamon.
For dinner tonight, I made Michelle’s Portobello, Parsnip, and Sweet Potato Barbecue Stew. I followed her recipe, but used bottled barbecue sauce and added fresh spinach and several tablespoons of sauerkraut that I had leftover in my fridge. I served the stew over whole brown rice. It was tasty!
Tonight’s snacks have/will consist of:
celery and baby carrots with hummus.
steamed broccoli and mushrooms.
fresh cantaloupe, strawberries, blackberries, and blueberries,
…my current snacking addiction: BBQ Pop Chips!
So, how did I do for my day of GREEN eats? Well…definitely not as good as last week, but I did manage to sneak in some peas, spinach, celery, and broccoli for a grand total of four green eats. Not too shabby, I suppose!
And now, to introduce…
What Vegans Eat: A Week of Vegan Eats
As you may know, I am a vegetarian who eats vegan three to four days per week. Beginning this Sunday, I will be starting an all vegan week of eats. I will blog about my daily vegan eats beginning on Monday. If you are interested in trying out a vegan diet for a week, a couple of days, one day, or even just for a couple of meals throughout the week, I would love for you to join me! I promise you, you will come to realize that vegans eat some darn good food!
I hope you all are having a lovely week, so far! Happy Almost Thursday :).
