A Slightly Monotonous WIAW: July 10, 2013

in Other

If you have not already noticed, I am quite the creature of habit.  I just cannot help it.  I like what I like.  As a result, my breakfasts and snacks tend to all look the same.  Hopefully I am not boring you too much with my monotonous eats!

WIAW general






WIAW: July 10, 2013

Let’s take a look at What I ate Wednesday Tuesday.


WIAW 52913






Here is the perfect example of monotony: My cereal bowl.  I love and crave cereal nearly every day.  Yesterday’s cereal bowl contained Kashi GoLean (like always), Arrowhead Mills Puffed Kamut, Cheerios, and Cascadian Farms Cinnamon Crunch cereals.  I topped the cereal bowl off with some unsweetened vanilla almond milk

Mid-Morning Snack

WIAW 5813 4






Every. single. day.


friday favorite guac cauliflower rice






Lunch was leftovers from Monday night’s dinner: Guacamole Cauliflower Rice.  More on this in my Friday Favorites post later on this week because, well, it is definitely worth being a favorite of mine!


WIAW 1213






Afternoon Snack

WIAW 71013






Pure deliciousness!  I think that this is my favorite flavor so far!


friday favorite black eye kale soup






Last night’s dinner (and today’s lunch!) was a smoky black-eyed pea and kale soup (more on this in a future Friday Favorites post!).  Instead of using crackers like I normally do, I crumbled lightly salted whole brown rice cakes into my soup.  It was taaaasty!


WIAW 62613






A veggie snack plate…

WIAW 71013 2






…and one of my new favorite snacks: a baked sweet potato topped with peanut butter and cinnamon!  I sometimes eat this for breakfast, too!

Have a wonderful Wednesday :).

    I'm a creature of habit with my eats too...so long as you're enjoying 'em, there's no harm :)
  • Katherine July 10, 2013, 7:52 am
    Monotonous or not, your food is so simplistic and whole. I'm such a creature of habit, so I totally get how it can become same old same old, but this food all looks good to me :) As long as you like it, I see no problems! :)
  • Eating 4 Balance July 10, 2013, 7:56 am
    That sweet potato topped with peanut butter sounds marvelous! And I think your monotony is refreshing! :) It seems like everyone is always trying to find the newest product or the strangest new food combination, but I personally just like what works and tastes best. Usually that is the same thing that I eat everyday as well.
  • Alex@Veggin' Out July 10, 2013, 8:04 am
    You never bore me with your eats! They always look delicious :) I tend to eat similar things from day to day too. I just find something I like and want to eat it all the time! Sweet potatoes with peanut butter are the BEST!
    • cleaneatingveggiegirl July 10, 2013, 9:40 pm
      They SO are! I need to try out some other nut butters with them because I am sure that that would be fabulous too.
  • jessielovestorun July 10, 2013, 8:04 am
    I could eat everything you showed! It all looks great, especially the sweet potato :)
  • Her Happy Balance July 10, 2013, 8:12 am
    Guacamole cauliflower rice and a black bean kale soup? They both look so good, did you make them? I don't want to wait until Friday to find out :) haha
  • Mandy @ The Running Herbivore July 10, 2013, 8:12 am
    That soup looks soooo good! This rainy weather we've been having around my area is making me want soup!! I definitely think I might try the sweet potatoes and peanut butter for breakfast to change up from my smoothies!
  • Julia July 10, 2013, 8:22 am
    That's not monotonous at all! That's a wonderful spread of deliciousness! The smokey black eyed pea kale soup looks phenomenal...and guacamole cauliflower rice? Hooooly crap! You're the second person I have seen mention sweet potato with peanut butter and now I'm dying to try it. Good eats!
  • Erin July 10, 2013, 8:30 am
    It still makes me smile when I see your evening snacks...And then makes me want to punch myself haha! Maybe one day I will crave healthy stuff for snacks (;
  • jumpeatrun July 10, 2013, 8:32 am
    I am totally a creature of habit when it comes to food too...especially lunches during the work week- I almost always have a salad :) Your lunch looks awesome btw.
    • cleaneatingveggiegirl July 10, 2013, 9:43 pm
      My lunches are pretty much always leftovers from dinner the night before. If not, I go with the salads, too.
  • swissfitchick July 10, 2013, 8:34 am
    Oh that Sweet Potato looks so good! The combo with nut butter and cinnamon is just perfect. I eat mine with yogurt on top, love that too!
  • Marie @ Little Kitchie July 10, 2013, 8:40 am
    The guacamole cauliflower fried rice sounds amazing!!
  • MegBek July 10, 2013, 8:46 am
    Sweet potato for breakfast? Yum. I WANT TO TRY THAT KIND OF LARA BAR. That is all. Is it really good? I like Lara Bars, but they're really rich for my taste buds....
  • dixya| food, pleasure, and health July 10, 2013, 9:04 am
    i am digging that soup..my breakfast is pretty monotonous too but lunch and dinner always varies. that sweet potato looks delishhh
  • eatgreatbegreat July 10, 2013, 9:05 am
    Mmmm...lots of awesome fruits and veggies...my favs! :-) The baked sweet potato with PB and cinnamon sounds so good! I need to give that a try!
  • Slim Sanity (@Slim_Sanity) July 10, 2013, 9:06 am
    The PB&J Larabar is one of my favs too!
  • cookingfortheotherhalf July 10, 2013, 9:23 am
    I've never tried the pb&j larabar flavor! That looks so good.
  • Kelly @ Vegan Iowan July 10, 2013, 9:27 am
    Love your sweet potato - I get so bored with breakfast, so I appreciate the new idea!
    • cleaneatingveggiegirl July 10, 2013, 9:47 pm
      You should definitely try it. It makes for a different and unique breakfast that is for sure.
  • kathysteger July 10, 2013, 9:34 am
    I am such a soup person. Can't wait for you to post the recipe.
    • cleaneatingveggiegirl July 10, 2013, 9:47 pm
      It is definitely a good one, especially when you are loving on black-eyed peas and kale like I am right now.
  • Brittany July 10, 2013, 9:48 am
    Your sweet potato creation makes me so excited for fall!! I eat a PB&J almost EVERY morning. It's my go to!
  • Alex @ therunwithin July 10, 2013, 11:18 am
    I just got peanut flour so I may have to try the sweet potato and peanut flour combo finally
  • Kelly @ hidden fruits and veggies July 10, 2013, 11:46 am
    Baked potato with PB? Yum!
  • Alex @ Cookie Dough Katzen July 10, 2013, 12:04 pm
    Looking forward to your rice recipe! I've been meaning to try sweet potato + pb for a while now. Good idea eating it as a breakfast!
  • Brittany @ Freckled Nettles July 10, 2013, 12:20 pm
    Mmm I love, love, love sweet potatoes and PB! You have to try it with sunflower seed butter too. All of your eats look delish! Have a wonderful week, girl!
    • cleaneatingveggiegirl July 10, 2013, 9:57 pm
      I definitely need to try that. But first, I need to try sunbutter! I have been wanting to but keep forgetting to buy it :(.
  • Dana @ Conscious Kitchen Blog July 10, 2013, 12:59 pm
    I'm such a creature of habit too! I tend to find one thing I like for lunch, that's easy to bring to work and stick with it for weeks on end. Oh well. I'll have to try a sweet potato and PB... I've never done that.
  • dailycupofkate July 10, 2013, 2:02 pm
    Not a day goes by where I don't eat a banana or sweet potato with peanut butter!
  • Rach @ This Italian Family July 10, 2013, 2:16 pm
    Nothing wrong with the same-old-same-old! Delicious eats as always. :)
  • veggiefoodlover July 10, 2013, 2:27 pm
    I definitely want the recipe for the guacamole rice. YUM!!
  • jessiebearwhat July 10, 2013, 2:59 pm
    Mmmm baked potato and peanut butter is the beeeesttt!
  • NaturesComplete July 10, 2013, 3:42 pm
    Looks all healthy to me. So if it is monotony for you and it works, who are we to judge?
  • Becky @ Olives n Wine July 10, 2013, 3:57 pm
    YUMM!!!! I love the idea of combining sweet potato and peanut butter. I actually just bought a sweet potato at Target today so I might have to try that out for dessert :)
  • sweetsummersmiles July 10, 2013, 6:54 pm
    I've never had a sweet potatoe with pb before but that looks really good. I'm going to try that soon!
  • Nicole @ FruitnFitness July 10, 2013, 8:21 pm
    Baked potato with nut butter is always a winning combination! I havent tried the PB&J flavor yet, I'm not a big fan of jelly so I don't know if I would like it or not.
    • cleaneatingveggiegirl July 10, 2013, 10:00 pm
      You should give it a try. It is made with dates and cherries so if you like those then you will probably like it!
  • cottercrunch July 10, 2013, 8:47 pm
    potato and PB... that's like GOLD in our house. hehe
  • Jan @ Sprouts n Squats July 10, 2013, 10:09 pm
    Monotonous? I think you mean delicious :) Love the sweet potato snack idea, especially for breakfast!
  • ahealthyhappyhome July 10, 2013, 10:54 pm
    I love sweet potato, almond butter and cinnamon. Oh a dash of sea salt too. So good!
  • kimathungryhealthygirl July 11, 2013, 7:57 am
    Yay...looks like you had success with the cauliflower 'rice'!! Love the looks of that black-eyed pea soup and, of course, that PB sweet potato!
  • MegBek July 11, 2013, 9:36 am
    All of this looks amazing! I have got to try a sweet potato with some almond butter and cinnamon. I never even thought to put those two together. You're a genius. Also, I will never be able to live without bananas. They never get old. I'm also a creature of habit. Meghan, on the other hand, has gotten sick of numerous food items lately. It's hard to keep up, haha. I guess you can over do certain items sometimes.
  • Flake And Cake July 11, 2013, 12:01 pm
    Baked sweet potato with peanut butter and cinnamon sounds amazing, ill have to give it a try! I'm such a creature of habit with my food but its cheaper and healthier for me than trying something new every day!
  • Alexis @ Hummusapien July 11, 2013, 12:23 pm
    Doesn't look boring to me! I love the sweet potato + almond butter combo, but pb sounds like a great addition, too. I'm just like you with cereal--I like to mix together a bunch of different kinds and top it all off with unsweetened vanilla almond milk! Delish :)
  • katalysthealth July 11, 2013, 1:41 pm
    you know, I cant get into the whole sweet tater with nut butter thing and I have no idea WHY! I love sweet taters and I love nutbutters, why don't I like them together?! So weird!
  • theafterschoolchef July 11, 2013, 2:52 pm
    Wow, the sweet potato with peanut butter looks AMAZING! Can't wait to try that!
  • Laurie @ Love, Laugh, Laurie July 11, 2013, 3:45 pm
    Yum, that soup looks so good! Excited for tomorrow's post about it!
  • ashley July 12, 2013, 12:54 am
    Nothing wrong with being a creature of habit.. I think we all are in some ways :) Can't wait to hear about this SOUP!!
    • cleaneatingveggiegirl July 13, 2013, 1:05 pm
      Sorry to make you wait, but I had SO many to share in yesterday's Friday Favorites post that it will have to wait until the next one!
