WIAW: July 17, 2013

in Other

Who is ready for another round of What I Ate Wednesday Tuesday?  No, you aren’t?  Well…too bad!

Oh, and watch out because I totally went against my usual “mid-morning” snack (gasp!).  You better read on to find out all about it ;).

WIAW general






What I Ate Wednesday: July 17, 2013


WIAW 71013 2






Yes, this is a recycled picture, but I didn’t exactly think that it would be appropriate for me to take a picture of my breakfast while at work ;).  You get the gist, though: a baked sweet potato topped with peanut butter and cinnamon.  YUM!

WIAW 71713






I finished off my breakfast with a sliced white nectarine.


WIAW 71713 2






Now here is where things get interesting.  I know that most of you are probably pretty used to seeing a picture of a banana for my mid-morning snack.  But yesterday, I got a little crazy and ate some veggies instead.  In the bowl were radish slices, tomatoes, and roasted buttercup squash.  It was actually kind of a nice change up.  But don’t worry, I am not getting rid of the banana forever.


friday favorite 2 bean chili 2y






Yesterday’s lunch consisted of leftovers from Monday night’s dinner.  It was a delicious vegetable and bean chili soup.  I will be posting more on this in a future Friday Favorites post :).

WIAW 71713 3






I also at a Golden Delicious apple.  So yellow and pretty!

Afternoon Snack

WIAW 71713 4






On my way to the gym after work, I snacked on a cashew Kit’s Organic Fruit + Nut Bar.  I love these bars!  Not only are they delicious, but this particular variety only contains 4 ingredients: organic dates, organic cashews, organic, almonds, and sea salt.  You can’t beat that!


mock tuna salad 4






Last night’s dinner consisted of a mock “tuna” salad sandwich from the Happy Herbivore on whole wheat toast with fresh spinach and onions (YUM!), a dill pickle spear, and my roasted turnip french fries dipped in ketchup and mustard.  It was soooo good!

Evening Snacks

vegan week day 4 5






…a veggie snack plate with hummus…

…fresh cantaloupe and grapes (sorry, I was too lazy to take a picture ;))…

…and some of these:

I'm Skinny snack sticks 7










(these are beyond delicious, by the way!)

Pretty exciting stuff, huh? 😉  Okay, maybe not, but it is Wednesday and that is exciting!  Have a great day everyone!

    It is exciting that it's Wednesday! :) Radishes, huh? I have a hard time eating them unless they're in a salad and I'm going to roast some per your recipe soon! :) Yay for switching things up a bit.. Have a fab day!
    • cleaneatingveggiegirl July 17, 2013, 7:39 am
      Yes, I definitely love radishes roasted MUCH more than raw, but I didn't have time to roast them when I was packing my meals for work so I just went with it;).
  • jessielovestorun July 17, 2013, 8:19 am
    Leave it up to you to give me the idea of roasting radishes... being the roasting queen that you are :) Will have to give it a try.
  • swissfitchick July 17, 2013, 8:20 am
    I LOVE your breakfast! Such a tasty combo! I just had radishes with hummus last night for dinner, so good.
  • Erin July 17, 2013, 8:24 am
    Those sweet potato skinny sticks?? YUM. I can't do radishes, but that squash looks so good!
  • Alex@Veggin' Out July 17, 2013, 8:26 am
    Why have I never thought to have a sweet potato for breakfast?! That fruit and nut bar sounds delicious! Though I really should work through by current bar stash before getting another one... SHOULD being the key word ;)
  • dixya| food, pleasure, and health July 17, 2013, 8:42 am
    im just impressed by all the fresh fruits and veggies you eat.
  • Ani D July 17, 2013, 9:03 am
    Kit's Organic?? I've never even seen them and I love Clif Bars! Definitely have to look for those to change up my usual Mojo Bar :)
    • cleaneatingveggiegirl July 17, 2013, 4:57 pm
      Mojo bars are awesome, but these are amazing, too! Plus the ingredient list on these ones is fabulous.
      • Ani D July 17, 2013, 7:12 pm
        They look very similar to Larabars!
  • Tara July 17, 2013, 9:13 am
    I always try to like radishes but I can't! I'm envious of you. :)
  • Sarah July 17, 2013, 9:48 am
    white nectarines are my favvvve! i need to get some soon :)
  • blonde hair blue eyed runner July 17, 2013, 9:51 am
    I'm just seriously impressed every week, like so many veggies and fruits. I eat those but I def have a lot more 'other' foods too lol
    • cleaneatingveggiegirl July 17, 2013, 4:58 pm
      Haha, I do my best to incorporate a lot in (plus I CRAVE most of them!), but I definitely have my indulgences too!
  • Brittany July 17, 2013, 10:03 am
    NEW CLIF BAR?! I have never seen that one, I must look for it! Sounds similar to Larabars, which I LOVE!
  • Dana @ Conscious Kitchen Blog July 17, 2013, 10:34 am
    Feels good to switch up a snack every now and then, doesn't it? The veggies look delicious. I usually reach for fruit as a quick snack, but I should try to grab veggies more often. Maybe cutting them up the night before would help?
  • Marisa @ Uproot from Oregon July 17, 2013, 10:45 am
    I am just shocked that there was not a banana..........
  • sprint2thetable July 17, 2013, 11:02 am
    Those sweet potato veggie stick sounds soooooo good. I love your pic with the nut butter too. I bet the sticks would be good dipped in nut butter... hmmm...
  • kelly @ hidden fruits and veggies July 17, 2013, 11:10 am
    Is there something about this year that made nectarines crazy delicious!? I've never given then a second thought before, but this year I want to eat every one I see.
  • Becky @ Olives n Wine July 17, 2013, 11:38 am
    I'm reading this right before lunch and am now even hungrier than I was before!! Your day of eats look delish :)
  • Sabrina @ Nutritiously Sweet July 17, 2013, 12:25 pm
    That sweet potato thing sounds really yummmmy. I am not really a fan of the sweet potato but wow that really sounds like pure bliss!
  • eatgreatbegreat July 17, 2013, 1:20 pm
    Oh, I'm so glad it's Wednesday too!! :-) I know I've said it before, but really got to try that sweet potato out!!! Hmmm...I think I have a sweet potato at home too! Okay...I think I know what I'm having for breakfast tomorrow!!!
  • Heather @ Pinkaholic Fitness July 17, 2013, 1:53 pm
    Heheh I just love the name " Hi, Im skinny sticks"! I want to buy them just because of them name! : ) The sweet potato idea with PB and Cinnamon looks amazing! I just may need to steal this little delight idea from you! : )
  • Alex @ Cookie Dough Katzen July 17, 2013, 2:12 pm
    I want to try those skinny sticks. Loving all your fresh produce meals!
  • Jan @ Sprouts n Squats July 17, 2013, 2:25 pm
    Those bars look and sound incredible! As do those sweet potato chips. I wish we could get both of them here! Are they peas on your veggie snack plate?
    • cleaneatingveggiegirl July 17, 2013, 6:18 pm
      Yes, I am sad that you aren't able to buy them there! :( And of course those are peas! I LOVE peas, even as snacks ;).
  • Nicole @ FruitnFitness July 17, 2013, 3:08 pm
    Oh what an exciting mid morning snack. I actually had a banana for my mid morning snack today. I need to have sweet potato and egg for breakfast soon, it used to be one of my go too's!
  • ahealthyhappyhome July 17, 2013, 3:49 pm
    Since we just got home from vacation it feels like a Monday to me! So weird! I love Kit's Organic bars! So yummy!
  • jessiebearwhat July 17, 2013, 3:59 pm
    Planning on having your breakfast as my dessert tonight ;)
  • Andrea @Pencils and Pancakes July 17, 2013, 4:20 pm
    Love sweet potato and peanut butter and/or sun butter and/or coconut butter!!!
  • Eating 4 Balance July 17, 2013, 4:42 pm
    I was going to say about your dinner... That looks a whole lot like a chicken/tuna salad sandwich! Sounds delicious! Golden delicious apples are one of my favorite kinds :)
  • Alex @ therunwithin July 17, 2013, 6:05 pm
    turnip fries are the best, I love roasting them so they are slightly crispy
    • cleaneatingveggiegirl July 17, 2013, 6:20 pm
      Me too!! The crispy texture with the right seasoning makes for some seriously delicious fries.
  • Kathy @ Olives and Garlic July 17, 2013, 7:39 pm
    Ohhh, I gota find that Clif bar flavor. I love that its organic
  • dailycupofkate July 17, 2013, 8:00 pm
    I have never had that type of Clif bar before--I must find!
  • Alyssa @ Road to RD July 17, 2013, 9:18 pm
    Yum I love white peaches! :)
  • Maggie @ Sunnyside Up Smile July 17, 2013, 9:18 pm
    For as much as I love sweet potatoes, it's a bit of a shock that I've never actually had them for breakfast! That one with pb and cinnamon looks so good that I might just have to try it now! ;) And I haven't ever seen that type of Clif bar before. I'm definitely gonna check 'em out.
  • carlyjg July 17, 2013, 11:52 pm
    Whoaaaaa girl, don't get too crazy with that midmorning snack switch up ;). Hahaha really though, all of your food looks delicious. Especially those fries with dinner. Roasted veggies just make me SO happy.
  • HappinessSavouredHot July 18, 2013, 4:39 am
    Wonderful job on the fruit and vegetables! Keep up the good work!
  • Christine @ Gotta Eat Green July 18, 2013, 9:12 am
    I love skinny sticks! I haven't had them in so long.. I'm going to have to go stock up.
  • shashimcharles July 18, 2013, 11:02 am
    The ingredients in the kits organic fruit and nut bar sound a lot like the ingredients that go into a Larabar - I love Larabars! I am in awe of anyone who can eat raw radishes - just cannot manage to choke them down! glad to have stumbled on your blog
  • olivetorun July 18, 2013, 1:44 pm
    Skinny Sweet Potato sticks? Look delicious!! I need to find them :)
  • Miss Messy July 18, 2013, 2:31 pm
    Sweet potato sticks look fabulous!
  • Kim @ Hungry Healthy Girl July 18, 2013, 7:10 pm
    I love those Kit organic bars from Clif and white nectarines. They may just be my favorite fruit. I want to try those sweet potato sticks!!
    • cleaneatingveggiegirl July 18, 2013, 9:15 pm
      The Kit bars are awesome, aren't they? And the sweet potato sticks are SO good. They have 5 other flavors of the sticks that are equally good. I love the BBQ flavor.
  • Liz @ I Heart Vegetables July 19, 2013, 8:24 am
    I LOVE The smell of bacon haha so I need to try vegetarian bacon! YUM! That sounds so delicious :) I've seen those sweet potato snack things but never tried them! Since you said they're good, I'll have to try them!
