A Nearly Wordless WIAW: October 30, 2013

in Other

Wednesday has rolled around again, and surprisingly this Wednesday came pretty quickly.  This likely has a lot to do with the fact that I only worked three hours on Monday so it sort of only feels like Tuesday.  Unfortunately, since I spent most of Monday driving back to Nebraska after being home for the weekend, I am feeling behind in all sorts of areas in my life.  Therefore, this is going to be one of those short and sweet What I Ate Wednesday posts.

P.S. Sorry for the horrendous looking pictures! 🙁

Salad topped with sundried tomatoes and apple Dijon vinaigrette dressing…

WIAW 103013 4

…and a veggie wrap on an Ezekiel sprouted tortilla with hummus, tomato paste, nutritional yeast…

…spinach, cucumbers, and red peppers.  Tasty!


WIAW 10913 3

2 Wasa crackers topped with herb and chive Tofutti vegan cream cheese, tomato slices, and sea salt.

I also had an orange La Croix sparkling water, a few baby carrots, and a sliced Gala apple.  I don’t have any pictures of these because I somehow forgot it was Tuesday partway through the day! 😉


friday favorite jamaican tempeh

More of Robyn’s Jamaican Jerk Tempeh (from my freezer) with sauteed peppers and onions on the side.


WIAW 103013 5

Baby carrots, cucumber slices, celery, and hummus…

…some blackberries and red seedless grapes (I was really bad about remembering to take pictures, huh?)…

WIAW 103013 6

…and I finished the night off with a baked (aka microwaved) sweet potato topped with maple almond butter…my current addiction.

Have a great Wednesday.  We are almost to Friday, right? 🙂

    What a great day of eats. I've been thinking about purchasing Arrowhead Mills puffed kamut cereal - how do you like it? Jessie recently posted...WIAW: 10/29/13My Profile

      I REALLY like it. I would never just eat it by itself because it is too "light?" but I love mixing it in with other cereals and putting it in my overnight oats. It tastes similar to puffed rice, but better!!

  • Becky @ Olives n Wine October 30, 2013, 11:39 am
    That sweet potato looks AMAZING! I have never actually combined nut butter with a sweet potato but considering I have both in my fridge at home, this might need to be dinner tonight :) Becky @ Olives n Wine recently posted...The Mind is a Powerful ThingMy Profile
    • ClnEatingVegGrl October 30, 2013, 12:30 pm
      Oh, Becky..you have been missing out!! You must try the sweet potato/nut butter combo. It is heavenly!
  • Amanda @ .running with spoons. October 30, 2013, 12:53 pm
    I'm going to go ahead and assume that the maple AB is Justin's, and then tell you that I have the same.exact.obsession with putting it on roasted kabocha. It's like crack, I tell ya!
    • ClnEatingVegGrl October 30, 2013, 2:20 pm
      Honestly, it seriously IS!! I have been wanting to put it on kabocha but I STILL haven't found any!! This weekend I am going to Whole Foods on a mission. I hope they have it!
  • Kim @ Hungry Healthy Girl October 30, 2013, 1:07 pm
    We were thinking alike with the overnight oats. And can I please get one of those almond butter slathered sweet potatoes over here! Can't think of a more tasty dessert!!
    • ClnEatingVegGrl October 30, 2013, 2:21 pm
      Yes! You really need to do the sweet potato/AB combo! I am already planning another one for tonight :).
  • Allison @ Life's a Bowl October 30, 2013, 2:09 pm

  • Amanda @ maepress October 30, 2013, 2:46 pm
    I have seriously got to try putting almond butter on my sweet potatoes! I keep seeing it everywhere and It looks so good. I always like to top them with savory stuff like chili, to balance out the sweetness. Amanda @ maepress recently posted...WIAW: comfort food for fallMy Profile
    • ClnEatingVegGrl October 30, 2013, 7:41 pm
      I am pretty sure that almost everything tastes good on sweet potatoes ;), but yes...nut butters are ones of the best! Let me know if you try it out!
  • Katie @ Daily Cup of Kate October 30, 2013, 3:21 pm

  • Ang @ Nutty for Life October 30, 2013, 8:38 pm
    I feel like I always pick out the most random parts of peoples' posts but I love La Croix sparkling water!! But it's so expensive. I've been subbing with TJ's sparkling water when I'm home and when I am at school with no TJ's I buy plain sparkling water and add lemon and lime juice myself.

      YES!! I froze it and reheated it in the microwaved after it had thawed in the fridge and I couldn't even tell that it had been frozen. So awesome!
