WIAW: June 12, 2013…and Tuesday, June 11, 2013!

in Other

Happy Wednesday, everyone!  I am extra excited about this week’s Wednesday because tomorrow is my “Friday.”  I am off of work on Friday so I only have one more work day to get through in order to make it to the weekend.  I am pretty pumped!  But enough of me making you all jealous ;), let’s get to the eats!  Today’s What I Ate Wednesday post features my eats from both Tuesday and Wednesday of this week.  I want to try to keep things interesting for you all (and I am very much a creature of habit), so I’ll be highlighting my favorite eats from the past two days.

WIAW June

 

 

 

 

 

Breakfast

WIAW 52913

 

 

 

 

 

So this was not actually what I ate for breakfast today.  I totally forgot to take a picture of my breakfast :(.  But, in my cereal bowl today were Kashi GoLean, Honey Kix, Arrowhead Mills Puffed Kamut, and Cascadian Farms Cinnamon Crunch cereals.  I, of course, topped my cereal mix with unsweetened vanilla almond milk.

Mid-Morning Snack

WIAW 51513 5

 

 

 

 

 

The usual…a banana!

Lunch

Hawaiian portobello burger

 

 

 

 

 

Today’s lunch featured leftovers from Monday night’s dinner.  I had a Hawaiian Portobello Burger (recipe to come in a future post!), a dill pickle spear (because these pair well with ALL sandwiches ;)), and…

WIAW 61213 3

 

 

 

 

 

…roasted kobucha squash!  I read about how good kobucha squash is for MONTHS on so many blogs.  Well, a week or two ago I finally bought one and roasted it.  And what can I say…I should not have waited so long to buy one.  This is my new obsession!  I roasted another one on Sunday and am trying to slowly work my way through it.  Does anyone else like to eat it cold?  I have been eating it straight out of the fridge!

Afternoon Snack

WIAW 61213 2

 

 

 

 

 

After work, I snacked on a Red Delicious apple…

WIAW 61213 6

 

 

 

 

 

…and roasted seaweed sheets.  I am pretty obsessed with these at the moment, too!

Dinner

WIAW 61213 7

 

 

 

 

 

Tonight’s dinner consisted of mini polenta pizzas.  I actually ate seven of these beauties and they were SO good!  Don’t worry, there will be more to come on these pizzas in a future post!

Evening Snacks

Last night’s snacks consisted of:

WIAW 61213

 

 

 

 

 

A vegetable snack plate (peas, carrots, radish slices, and chipotle hummus)…

WIAW 61213 4

 

 

 

 

 

…and a bowl of french toast scrambled eggwhites (eggwhites, vanilla extract, and cinnamon) with roasted kobucha squash, all topped with PB2 peanut butter.  This was a new concoction for me, but it is definitely one that I will be making again soon.

All in all, these past few days have been fantastic in the eats department! 🙂

    Do you put anything on the kabocha squash before roasting? I've roasted butternut squash but never tried these!
    • cleaneatingveggiegirl June 12, 2013, 9:20 pm
      All that I did was spray it with olive oil spray and sprinkle it with pepper, sea salt, garlic powder, and onion powder. It turned out SO delicious!
      • fitfoodieforlife June 12, 2013, 9:26 pm
        Thanks~can't wait to try it! I admit, I had to google what one looked like uncut. I think I've seen this kind in our stores but I guess I never paid attention to the name!
  • kaityscooking June 12, 2013, 9:16 pm
    any sandwich is not complete without a pickle! lol and that french toast scramble sounds amazing!
  • aftertheivyleague June 12, 2013, 9:46 pm
    Looks like a great day of eats! I'm a little jealous of your cheerios, used to be one of my favorite cereals before going gluten free. Thank god for Puffins though, or I don't know what I'd do lol
  • ahealthyhappyhome June 12, 2013, 9:51 pm
    The polenta pizzas look so good and so cute! I love Kabocha squash and just stalked up since they were on sale at Sprouts for 99 cents a pound!
  • jessielovestorun June 12, 2013, 11:07 pm
    I am always eating kabocha straight up cold.. oh & with some peanut butter & maple syrup on top!!
  • NDBalances June 13, 2013, 12:09 am
    that last snack looks quite interesting, i would never have thought to pair egg whites with peanut butter!
  • AnnaTheApple June 13, 2013, 2:17 am
    Your evening snack sounds amazing!! I haven't yet tried kobucha squash as its quite hard to find in the uk so I'm very jealous ;-)
  • Jan @ Sprouts n Squats June 13, 2013, 2:48 am

  • Erica @ For the Sake of Cake June 13, 2013, 5:21 am

  • megbek June 13, 2013, 5:50 am
    You can say that last sentence again! You are incredible for making all this food to eat all week long! I love it! I've never heard of that kind of squash but it looks really yummy! Anything that color is cool with me! Have a great 'Friday'! :)
  • Kelly @ Hidden Fruits and Veggies June 13, 2013, 6:39 am

  • Marie @ Little Kitchie June 13, 2013, 7:05 am

    I need that polenta pizza recipe asap please :) And I love roasted kobucha squash, I usually don't have leftovers though, so I don't know if I like it cold :)
  • jumpeatrun June 13, 2013, 8:26 am
    mini polenta pizza and a portobella burger...love it! I am obsessed with those seaweed sheets too- so good!
    • cleaneatingveggiegirl June 13, 2013, 12:13 pm
      Aren't they awesome? The whole idea of eating them weirded me out at first, but I really like them!
  • ashley June 13, 2013, 9:12 am
    I'm jealous of your healthy eating habits! Wish I had that discipline!
    • cleaneatingveggiegirl June 13, 2013, 12:13 pm
      I genuinely LOVE healthy food and fruits/veggies! But trust me, I have my splurges!! We all need pizza and froyo :).
  • Michelle @ Eat Move Balance June 13, 2013, 9:34 am
    I'll eat kabocha in any way shape or form. Love it! Roasted on the grill or in the oven is my favorite. I toss it on top of salads for lunch--it's my favorite part!
  • katalysthealth June 13, 2013, 9:40 am
    mmm it all looks amazing!! Ive actually never tried kabocha, but I really want too!

  • Andrea @Pencils and Pancakes June 13, 2013, 10:20 am
    I need to try that squash as well. I don't even think I've seen one at a store though! I will most likely get addicted.
  • makingthymeforhealth June 13, 2013, 11:04 am
    Ohh, I can't wait to see the mini polenta pizza recipe! I love polenta pizza but I've never made them mini. Happy Friday to you chica!! :)

    Wow, I definitely will wait for the Hawaiian Portobello Burger recipe!
  • Maggie @ Sunnyside Up Smile June 13, 2013, 5:15 pm
    I just found your blog and I'm digging it! :) I love what you eat. So healthy and so varied! I've been eating a lot of oatmeal with almond milk and green juices lately! They work at any meal. I also love me some baby carrots ;)
    • cleaneatingveggiegirl June 13, 2013, 8:30 pm
      Thank you!! I hope you find some recipes that you like! :) And baby carrots are a daily MUST!
  • Rach @ This Italian Family June 13, 2013, 6:00 pm
    I love that you mix your cereals! I do that too! :)
    • cleaneatingveggiegirl June 13, 2013, 8:31 pm
      Eating just one type of cereal now seems SO foreign for me. I need at least 3 or 4 kinds ;).
  • Alex @ therunwithin June 13, 2013, 7:03 pm
    so much yum! I think I need to find a place that sells kabocha squash STAT
  • Katherine June 13, 2013, 9:28 pm
    Um can I come eat with you for a day? I need to find kabocha squash ASAP! Heck, your mixed cereal is looking fab right now!
  • carlyjg June 13, 2013, 10:40 pm
    Mini polenta pizzas?! I don't even really know what those consist of, but I think I want 8,000 of them.
  • Alex (Veggin' Out in the Kitchen) June 14, 2013, 7:02 am
    Ah I need some kabocha!!! I was obsessed with it last sumer but haven't had any since I've been back from school. I need to fix that ;) I can't wait for the Hawaiian portabella burger recipe! It sounds fantastic and looks like it might involve pineapple... always a plus! :)
    • cleaneatingveggiegirl June 14, 2013, 7:35 am
      Yes, kobucha is pretty much amazing! And you bet..there is definitely some pineapple on there! :)
