What I Ate Wednesday Tuesday: August 7, 2013


WIAW 71013 2






Yesterday’s breakfast was a baked sweet potato topped with PB2 peanut butter.  This is SO delicious and is one of my favorite breakfasts right now!

I also paired it with:

WIAW 8713 3






Fresh mango, strawberries, and blackberries.  I am loving how delicious all of the Summertime fruit is right now!

Mid-Morning Snack

WIAW 6513 3






A perfectly ripe banana.


pea carrot rice soup 8 y






Lunch was leftovers from a big batch of Slow-Cooker Pea and Carrot Rice Soup that I made over the weekend.  I followed my recipe exactly but added in some green beans this time.  I served my soup over leftover cauliflower “rice” to make it extra thick.

    Your breakfast looks fab! I had some roasted squash with peanut butter and cottage cheese as part of dinner the other day and couldn't get over how delicious the combo was!

  • Alysia @ Slim Sanity August 7, 2013, 8:08 am
    I've never tried sweet potato and PB. I'm still sticking to the savory versions of sweet potatoes! That soup looks really good!
  • chasingchels August 7, 2013, 8:13 am
    Mmm i've been munching on popcorn a lot more as a snack recently, too! Weird since it's not something I usually go for, but it's definitely made an appearance more than once in the past week! Oh well...rolling with it :P
    • cleaneatingveggiegirl August 7, 2013, 12:59 pm
      I LOVE popcorn! I am definitely going to make some in my air-popped tonight and top it with tons of nutritional yeast :).
  • Erin August 7, 2013, 8:33 am
    I almost picked up that popcorn the other day...is it good?? And that soup looks fabulous!
  • MegBek August 7, 2013, 8:37 am
    I want to try those fries! And that popcorn is the best, I buy the big a$$ bags from Costco.. Probably not good for my portion control.. :)
    • cleaneatingveggiegirl August 7, 2013, 1:00 pm
      Haha, I hear ya. I always portion out my serving otherwise I would eat about half of the bag in one sitting.
  • Alex@Veggin' Out August 7, 2013, 8:46 am
    I STILL need to try a sweet potato for breakfast!! I'm loving all the fruit right now too! The berries? Oh my, to die for! And I forgot about mango... How could I?! It's one of my favorite fruits! Thanks for the reminder :)
  • swissfitchick August 7, 2013, 8:56 am
    Your breakfast looks so yummy! And I totally love that claret colander, so cute!

  • kathysteger August 7, 2013, 9:03 am
    I've started to crave soup again. Maybe it's the cooler weather we've had the last few days. That soup looks delicious. I need to make skme
    • cleaneatingveggiegirl August 7, 2013, 1:02 pm
      It is perfect soup weather. But then again, I am one who thinks that all weather is perfect soup weather ;).
  • Katherine August 7, 2013, 9:15 am
    I've never thought to bake a sweet potato much less put pb2 on top! That seriously is going to happen in my kitchen soon! And those grapes! They've become my favorite snack! So juicy and tasty!
  • Her Happy Balance August 7, 2013, 9:22 am
    While all of your eats are definitely healthified and awesome, I have to say I really love your little red colander holding your fruit :)
  • Sam @ Better With Sprinkles August 7, 2013, 10:28 am
    I love how sweet potatoes literally work at any point in the day, including breakfast! And now I wish I had some soup for lunch, yours looks awesome!
  • Dana @ Conscious Kitchen Blog August 7, 2013, 11:30 am

  • Tara August 7, 2013, 11:45 am
    I'm reading your post and going through your comments and surprised to see all the different Larabar flavors! The most adventurous one I tried was Apple Pie. Where can I get PB&J?!
  • Alyssa @ Road to RD August 7, 2013, 12:07 pm
    A peanut butter and jelly Lara bar? Why have I never seen this before?!
  • Kathryn @ Illustrated Nutrition August 7, 2013, 12:13 pm
    Gotta love PB2! It's one of the best discoveries I've ever made! All your eats look so good :)
  • Eating 4 Balance August 7, 2013, 12:20 pm
    What a great day of food! Your slow cooker soup sounds delicious. And it sounds like you are really digging the riced cauliflower :) You've got some great fresh fruit too. The grapes and pineapple combo sounds perfect for summer.
