WIAW: April 24, 2013

in Other

WIAW general






My camera and computer were SO not cooperating today and I was not able to upload my photos until 8:30 p.m. tonight.  Therefore, this is going to be a short and sweet What I Ate Wednesday post.  Here are today’s eats!








Breakfast consisted of a sweet and savory waffle-wich with whole grain waffles, one sunny-side up dippy egg, pumpkin butter, and nutritional yeast.  Yes, it sounds weird, but it was so good!







On the side I ate a bowl of Greek vanilla yogurt with fresh blackberries and strawberries.

Mid-Morning Snack







My mid-morning snack was a ripe and brown spotted banana…the best kind!








Lunch consisted of last night’s dinner: a Deconstructed Sushi Bowl slightly adapted from Elise’s recipe.  In the bowl was quinoa, green cabbage, shredded carrots, sprouts, seitan, half of an avocado, and Bragg’s Liquid Aminos.  This was seriously SO good!  I will definitely be making it again.







Accompanying my bowl was a Golden Delicious apple.  I am obsessed with this variety right now.








After work, I snacked on three Wasa crackers smeared with PB2 peanut butter and strawberry preserves.  This was the perfect snack to tide me over until dinner.








Dinner was African Jollof, a recipe from the Happy Herbivore Abroad cookbook.  So, so good!


Evening snacks included/will include (sorry for the recycled pictures)…

…and air-popped popcorn (my current night-time snack addiction!).

Happy almost Thursday, everyone! 🙂

    I don't like jelly but i really like the sound of adding apple butter to your egg sandwich. I love egg sandwiches with cheese and spicy mustard but the apple butter might be a great sweet/savory combination. You can never go wrong with popcorn!

    Love the look of your dinner! I grew up in Nigeria so jollof rice takes me back to my childhood :)

    your lunch bowl sounds delicious! have a fabulous rest of the week hunnie xoxo
  • Sara @ Nourish and Flourish April 25, 2013, 1:10 am
    Sweet and savory wafflewiches are my favorite!! I love the idea of adding nutritional yeast for a "cheesy" kick without the cheese, too. :D Everything else looks delicious, as always! I'm especially loving the nighttime popcorn--I'm munching some as I type, and dunking it in peanut butter. Have you ever tried doing that? So so good! xoxo

      Nutritional yeast is just plain amazing. I think I could add it to almost anything ;). I love the idea of dipping popcorn in PB. I am a nut butter fanatic :).
  • Lucie@FitSwissChick April 25, 2013, 2:50 am
    Pumpkin Butter??? Why did I never heard of that?? And I am in love with your breakfast sandwich and lunch. Both look so good!! Sweet and Savory is THE winner!
  • Michelle @ Eat Move Balance April 25, 2013, 4:22 am
    The deconstructed sushi bowl sounds like a great idea! And air-popped popcorn (with a drizzle of coconut oil) is definitely my nighttime snack of choice!! I love it!
    • cleaneatingveggiegirl April 25, 2013, 1:09 pm
      I usually spray my popcorn with coconut oil spray (I finally found it at TJ's!) and sprinkle it with nutritional yeast!
  • Joanne April 25, 2013, 6:22 am
    I need to make more waffle-wiches!! And that sushi salad. So much food inspiration here!
  • Jan @ Sprouts n Squats April 25, 2013, 7:09 am
    That sushi bowl looks amazing! What a great idea :)
  • Kelly @ Hidden Fruits and Veggies April 25, 2013, 7:22 am
    I was thinking about popcorn all day yesterday, and never got around to making any. Now my craving is back!
  • Erin April 25, 2013, 8:31 am
    My husband thinks it's so weird that I put pumpkin butter on egg sandwiches! I'm glad I'm not the only one!! I love that stuff
    • cleaneatingveggiegirl April 25, 2013, 1:11 pm
      I thought that I was the only one who did that, too!! I am obsessed with pumpkin butter :).
  • megbek April 25, 2013, 8:52 am
    I'm a big fan of that deconstructed sushi bowl idea... You're the best! :)
    • cleaneatingveggiegirl April 25, 2013, 1:11 pm
      It was sooo tasty!! And thank you for the kind words. You are giving me WAY too much credit, though! ;)
  • Laurie @ Love, Laugh, Laurie April 25, 2013, 9:02 am
    Deconstructed sushi bowl! What a great idea, I'll have to try it!
  • cookingfortheotherhalf April 25, 2013, 9:27 am
    YUM! I can't wait for all the spring/summer fruit... cantaloupe is one of my all-time favs.
    • cleaneatingveggiegirl April 25, 2013, 1:12 pm
      I am SO obsessed with cantaloupe!! I cannot wait to start incorporating in some watermelon, too!
  • Alex @ therunwithin April 25, 2013, 9:37 am
    I am so ready to get some melon in my life!
  • Alex @ Cookie Dough Katzen April 25, 2013, 10:16 am
    That dinner looks delish! I'm on a big popcorn kick too!
    • cleaneatingveggiegirl April 25, 2013, 1:13 pm
      Popcorn is definitely one of the best snacks. And when topped properly (not with TONS of butter! ;)), it is a pretty guiltless snack!
  • HealthyDiva (@HealthyDiva31) April 25, 2013, 10:37 am
    Hi love!!! Stopping by to say hello and show love!! Your WIAW eats look so yum, especially your lunch bowl!!! Happy Thursday! <3
  • slimsanity April 25, 2013, 10:57 am
    could totally go for some blackberries right now! air-popped popcorn was my snack last night too :)
  • Ang @ Nutty for Life April 25, 2013, 10:58 am
    Yay for popcorn! And I was gonna ask, what does the nooch and pumpkin butter taste like?
    • cleaneatingveggiegirl April 25, 2013, 1:14 pm
      It was a good combo, but I am also a HUGE fan of the sweet and savory combination. A lot of times I will use Laughing Cow cheese wedges on my waffle-wich sandwiches, too!
  • Dana @ Conscious Kitchen Blog April 25, 2013, 11:50 am
    Oh I'm such a sucker for the sweet-savory combo. That breakfast looks amazing!
  • elise April 25, 2013, 12:14 pm
    yup that bowl looks like 99% of my meals! love the wafflewich :)
  • Brittany April 25, 2013, 1:02 pm
    Popcorn is the perfect nighttime snack.
  • Eating 4 Balance April 25, 2013, 2:00 pm
    I actually think your breakfast sounds great. Waffle sandwich!
  • Ashley @ AlmostVegGirlie April 25, 2013, 4:26 pm
    I really need to make a sushi bowl! I have nori which I usually use for wraps but I love the idea of a deconstructed bowl. Random meals like that are the best!
  • Kelly @ Vegan Iowan April 26, 2013, 9:03 am
    Loooove air-popped popcorn! I have been making a big batch and bringing smaller bags of it to work for snacks. It's great sprayed with a little olive oil cooking spray and shaken with nutritional yeast.
    • cleaneatingveggiegirl April 26, 2013, 11:11 am
      It is just SO tasty! I love to spray mine with either olive oil spray or coconut oil spray and then top it with nutritional yeast, too! Who needs cheese and butter?
  • Lauren @ LaurenPhelpsCoaching April 26, 2013, 2:12 pm
    Yum!! Those berries look so amazing! I'd like to try the sushi bowl too. Have a fabulous weekend!
