WIAW: June 19, 2013

in Other

In the healthy living blogging community, most bloggers’ What I Ate Wednesday posts actually feature their eats from Tuesday.  Most weeks, however, I tend to post on Wednesday evenings and feature my eats from that day.  This week, though, I am following the crowd ;).  Here is what I ate Wednesday Tuesday.








WIAW 61913 2






Tuesday’s breakfast featured a baked sweet potato (which I “baked” in the microwave Monday night) topped with half of an avocado and sea salt.  Sweet potatoes and avocados make everything better, so I figured why not combine the two?  I also ate a banana on the side.

Mid-Morning Snack

WIAW 61913 3






I ate fresh pineapple, blackberries, and raspberries for my mid-morning snack.  Unfortunately, the raspberries and blackberries weren’t all that tasty :(.


friday favorite WIAW 61913






Lunch consisted of leftovers from Monday night’s dinner: Black bean tacos in hearts of Romaine lettuce “shells” topped with salsa and cherry tomatoes.  So, so tasty!

I also ate a Gala apple on the side (unpictured).

Afternoon Snack

On Monday I came home to a package at my doorstep containing several different varieties of Clif bars.  I packed one of them for my after-work snack to eat on the way to the gym.

WIAW 61913






I loved this flavor and the crunchy texture was awesome.  I probably should have planned better and not eaten these (you get two in a package!) in the car, though.  I made a bit of a mess! 😉


filet o fish 4






For dinner I made Michelle’s vegan Fish o’ Filet sandwich.  I adapted the recipe slightly by using bread crumbs and adding a couple of dashes of Old Bay Seasoning.  I served the filet on whole wheat toast with fresh spinach leaves, onion, and Vegenaise vegan mayo.  On the side I ate a dill pickle spear and roasted turnip fry wedges (more on these a different day!).  It was SUCH a tasty dinner.

Evening Snacks

Last night I snacked on:

WIAW 61913 4






Celery, radish slices, cherry tomatoes, and baby carrots with Trader Joe’s chipotle hummus…

WIAW 61913 6






…fresh cantaloupe and green grapes…

WIAW 61913 5






…and air-popped popcorn (my favorite snack right now!).

Happy Wednesday, all! 🙂

    • cleaneatingveggiegirl June 19, 2013, 12:39 pm
      It is SO good! And since you have been looking for tofu recipes lately, this one would be perfect!

    Sweet potato and avocado? How have I never thought of that!!
    • cleaneatingveggiegirl June 19, 2013, 12:40 pm
      I was asking myself the same thing when I tried it for the first time yesterday. That will definitely be happening again!
  • megbek June 19, 2013, 8:25 am
    Yeah, I'm intrigued by the sweet potato + avocado combo. Interesting.... Can't wait for your turnip french fry post!
  • Laurie @ Love, Laugh, Laurie June 19, 2013, 8:32 am
    That sandwich looks really good, perfect for summer! And sweet potato and avocado sounds like the perfect combo!
  • Erin June 19, 2013, 9:08 am
    I always put avocado on sweet potato!! Soooo good! Add some plain greek yogurt ad it's even better!
  • Marie @ Little Kitchie June 19, 2013, 9:13 am
    Ohh that fish sandwich sounds awesome!
  • chasingchels June 19, 2013, 9:16 am
    I didn't know Cliff made crunchy bars!I'll have to keep a lookout for those...crunch bars are my fav :P
    • cleaneatingveggiegirl June 19, 2013, 12:43 pm
      It has been forever since I have had a crunchy granola bar, but I am LOVING these so far! Delicious :).
  • Khushboo Thadani (@KhushbooThadani) June 19, 2013, 9:30 am
    Never tried those Cliff bars but I'm a big fan of Cliff Z bars!
  • Slim Sanity (@Slim_Sanity) June 19, 2013, 10:04 am
    Totally agree, everything is better with avocado! Air popped popcorn is one of my favs right now too :)
  • Lucie@FitSwissChick June 19, 2013, 10:40 am
    The sandwich looks so good!! And I love the Sweet Potato Avocado Combo.
    • cleaneatingveggiegirl June 19, 2013, 12:44 pm
      I cannot believe it took me so long to try the sweet potato and avocado combo. Silly me! ;)
  • Dana @ Conscious Kitchen Blog June 19, 2013, 10:41 am
    Yes - I'm totally a WIA - Tuesday person - haha! Your breakfast sounds so tasty. Sweet potatoes for breakfast = awesome.
    • cleaneatingveggiegirl June 19, 2013, 12:44 pm
      I LOVE sweet potatoes for breakfast. I also like topping them with nut butter and cinnamon :).
  • Eating 4 Balance June 19, 2013, 10:50 am
    Aw, I'm going to miss getting your WIAW in my bloglovin on Wednesday nights. It was like a little present after I thought I had run out of WIAWs to read :) So strange not to see a banana as your mid-morning snack as well! Haha. That fish fillet from Peachy Palate looks so good. And those vegetable chips on the side sounds amazing as well.
    • cleaneatingveggiegirl June 19, 2013, 12:45 pm
      Haha! You know me WAY too well with that banana ritual! ;) And don't worry, I imagine that I will still be doing some WIAW posts on Wednesday nights! I am not always prepared/organized enough to get them written on Tuesday nights! ;)
  • Michelle @ Eat Move Balance June 19, 2013, 11:06 am
    I'm obsessed with popcorn. My favorite snack!! I don't know that I've had sweet potato and avocado together, but you're right, they both are amazing, why not? :)
  • Tara June 19, 2013, 11:14 am
    The berries in San Francisco aren't too sweet right now either. Hopefully they get tastier in the next few weeks!
  • Andrea @Pencils and Pancakes June 19, 2013, 11:17 am
    I always cook sweet potatoes in the microwave! so easy
  • Kelly @ hidden fruits and veggies June 19, 2013, 11:32 am
    That dinner sandwich sounds kind of amazing, I'mgoing to have to check out that recipe. I'm also pretty jealous of the veggie plate you have every night for a snack -- after dinner, all I want to eat is sweets, I wish I had your will power!
    • cleaneatingveggiegirl June 19, 2013, 12:47 pm
      I actually CRAVE my veggie plates! Mostly because I am pretty much obsessed with baby carrots and hummus :).
  • kimathungryhealthygirl June 19, 2013, 12:35 pm
    I need to try that avocado/sweet potato combo....sounds interestingly delish! My kids love those crunchy Cliff bars and you're right, they are a tad on the messy side. ;)
  • jumpeatrun June 19, 2013, 12:35 pm
    woohoo for pickles!! how was the combo of avocado and sweet potato??
    • cleaneatingveggiegirl June 19, 2013, 12:48 pm
      Pickles are a MUST with pretty much every sandwich that I eat. Avocado and sweet potato together = amazing!!
  • lifesarunner June 19, 2013, 12:45 pm
    That snack plate is completely up my alley! It's becoming my go-to for lunch, snacks, dessert, you name it :) I saw those Crunch bars at the grocery store but decided not to buy them...mistake? Great day!
    • cleaneatingveggiegirl June 19, 2013, 12:49 pm
      Definitely a mistake! That is the first flavor that I have tried so far, but I was loving it. If you like crunchy granola bars then you would definitely like these!
  • Kelly @ Vegan Iowan June 19, 2013, 1:28 pm
    OK, I am SERIOUSLY impressed by the amount of fruit you eat! You give me something to strive for.
  • dixya| food, pleasure, and health June 19, 2013, 2:00 pm
    i loveee popcorns and you eat so many fruits and vegies- i wish i did the same.
  • Her Happy Balance June 19, 2013, 2:09 pm
    I have some turnips I got from the CSA that I plan on making tonight. I have no idea what I am going to do with them just yet, but fries sounds like a GREAT option!
  • makingthymeforhealth June 19, 2013, 3:20 pm
    That fish fillet sandwich looks tasty!
  • ahealthyhappyhome June 19, 2013, 3:51 pm
    Haha! At first glance i thought you ate the sweet potato raw for breakfast! That would be a new way to enjoy it!
    • cleaneatingveggiegirl June 19, 2013, 6:50 pm
      Haha, yeah when I took the picture it was definitely raw. I'm not sure how tasty that would be.. ;).
  • kaityscooking June 19, 2013, 5:29 pm
    Yum i gotta check out that fish filet recipe, looks great! I love sweet potatoes for breakfast, def gotta try adding in some avocado next time!
  • jessiebearwhat June 19, 2013, 6:54 pm
    I've never seen those cliff bars!
  • Nicole @ FruitnFitness June 19, 2013, 7:37 pm
    I always love popcorn! Sweet potatoes and avocado are always an amazing combination! I like to do sweet potato, avocado and fried egg.It's one of my favorite breakfasts that I don't eat nearly enough.
  • Katherine June 19, 2013, 7:56 pm
    Um, can I please eat with you every day? Your food looks amazing! Love that popcorn and hummus! Hummus is my go to snack this year apparently. So so good!
  • Jan @ Sprouts n Squats June 19, 2013, 9:01 pm

  • kathysteger June 19, 2013, 9:17 pm
    Yummy dinner. :)
  • Pleadings & Pasta June 19, 2013, 9:56 pm
    Agreed, air popped popcorn is the best! I probably should invest in an air popper with as quickly as I go through a bag of that stuff. Yum!
  • Fit 'n' Well Mommy June 19, 2013, 11:55 pm
    Your roasted turnip fries look good! I love roasted sweet potato and butternut squash fries, so I'll have to try turnips next time.I love air popped popcorn, too! My new favorite is air popped popcorn with a drizzle of coconut oil and a pinch of sea salt on top...YUM!
    • cleaneatingveggiegirl June 20, 2013, 11:41 am
      I love spraying my popcorn with TJ's coconut oil spray and then sprinkling it with sea salt and nutritional yeast. Yum!!
  • ashley June 20, 2013, 12:44 am
    I love all your healthy snacks...you're giving me good ideas!! :)
  • Caitlyn June 20, 2013, 8:33 am
    all i really have to say is: UM THIS ALL LOOKS SO GOOD.
  • Dan from Platter Talk June 20, 2013, 8:57 am
    What a great post. Thanks for inspiring me!!
  • Nausheen@ Fifteen&Eating clean June 20, 2013, 11:45 am
    Everything looks delicious! Really want to try a sweet potato now...with avocado on top :d
  • katalysthealth June 20, 2013, 2:53 pm
    Raspberries and blackberries are my least favorite berries because if you don't get a good batch, then they are almost inedible. When they are juicy and perfectly ripe though? You best watch out. I end up with purply-red hands and lips!
  • P June 20, 2013, 3:00 pm
    Vegan filet-o-fish? How good does that sound :D!
  • mvwinter27 June 20, 2013, 5:24 pm
    Such healthy snacks and eating- thanks for the inspiration!
