WIAW: November 6, 2013

in Other

WIAW generalToday’s What I Ate Wednesday post is coming atcha featuring my eats from this past Sunday.  I almost always share my day of eats using a week day.  I think that it is nice for you to see what I eat on a typical work day, but you rarely every get to see a day of eats for a day on the weekend.  But that is about to change.  Check out What I Ate Wednesday Sunday!


After a 30 minute Jillian Michaels yoga DVD workout, I sat down to eat this GIANT pancake:

pumpkin eggwhite pancake

I made a Pumpkin Egg White and Oatmeal Protein Pancake, which I topped off with peanut butter and half a banana.  This was seriously good.  My breakfasts on the weekend are definitely a bit more “elaborate” (if you can call this elaborate ;)) because I have a lot more time to dedicate towards prepping them.  Weekend breakfasts almost always consist of some type of pancakes, french toast, or nachos.  Nachos for breakfast?  Yes…check back tomorrow! 😉

Mid-morning Snack

WIAW 11613

Mid-morning, I broke out my cute little festive bowl from last year and ate the other half of the banana that was leftover from breakfast.

For lunch, I made The Happy Herbivore’s Mexican Cabbage (with pinto beans instead of black beans) and topped it off with some nutritional yeast.

Afternoon Snackage

First up:

WIAW 11613 3

I snagged a few pieces of roasted kabocha squash that I prepped up for this week.  I finally found my first kabocha of the season at Whole Foods, and thank goodness because I was really craving it!

WIAW 11613 5

Next, I snacked on some sugar snap peas.  I am in love with these babies right now.  And no, I did not eat this whole bag, though if they weren’t so expensive I probably would have been tempted to! 😉

I also drank a strawberry Zevia…

WIAW 116136

…and snacked on a Divine apple dipped in sunflower seed butter (yes, I forgot to take a picture until I was half way through the apple).


butternut squash lentil loaf 2

Dinner was two slices of a Butternut Squash Lentil Loaf (recipe to come!) dipped in barbecue sauce and served alongside sauteed rainbow chard and mushrooms.  Seriously, this was darn good.  Ah heck, I am going to go ahead and say it.  This was damn good! 😉

Evening Snacks

I ended the night with a few snacks, including:

WIAW 102313 6

fresh strawberries and grapes…

WIAW 103013 6

…and (no surprise here) a baked sweet potato topped with maple almond butter…the best way to end a night!

Have a great Wednesday, everyone :).

  • Meghan @ fitnesscrEATures November 6, 2013, 8:25 am
    YES why are sugar snap peas SO expensive? I go through a whole bag all at once and then I'm like crap, I basically just ate gold. Damn it! Meghan @ fitnesscrEATures recently posted...The Wind Under My FeetMy Profile
    • ClnEatingVegGrl November 6, 2013, 7:48 pm
      I know, right? It's super frustrating! They really are like gold aren't they? ;)

    Such a cute little festive bowl! I need to get me one of those for the different seasons. I cannot wait for that butternut squash lentil loaf recipe! I have a butt-ton of lentils right now and haven't had a butternut all season! Ang @ Nutty for Life recently posted...Grapefruits Aren’t Grapes [WIAW #31]My Profile

      Thanks! I got it at Target in the dollar section ;). You definitely need that recipe then because lentils are amazing and it is just WRONG that you haven't had any butternut! ;)
  • Kelly @ hidden fruits and veggies November 6, 2013, 8:45 am
    I'm no stranger to breakfast nachos -- best way to start a morning, in my opinion! Can't wait to see your recipe.

  • Amanda @ .running with spoons. November 6, 2013, 10:01 am
    How amazing is the SP and maple AB combo!? Seriously makes my brain want to explode. And remember that pic of OIAJ that you posted on IG? The one in the empty Justin's maple AB? As soon as I saw that, you're the first one who came to mind even before I saw that it actually WAS you who posted it :lol:
    • ClnEatingVegGrl November 6, 2013, 7:51 pm
      Haha! Too stinkin' funny! I think it is known to many that I have a slight obsession.. ;)

      Check back tomorrow!! They are quite tasty, if I do say so myself! ;)
  • Nicole @ FruitnFitness November 6, 2013, 12:12 pm
    I have never made a lentil loaf but now I'm thinking that needs to change, I'm excited to see the recipe! Apple and nut/seed butter is always a good snack. On the weekends my day tends to be a lot less snacky than typical work days, I think I usually eat bigger meals on the weekends.

    • ClnEatingVegGrl November 6, 2013, 7:54 pm
      You definitely need to make a lentil loaf! I hope you'll try mine once I get it posted :). And yes, more eats most definitely happen on the weekends!
  • Katie @ running4cupcakes November 6, 2013, 12:44 pm
    I have the same problem with sugar snap peas - I would love to crunch through the whole bag sometimes but they are so darn expensive!!
    • ClnEatingVegGrl November 6, 2013, 7:55 pm
      Yes, and I have no idea why they are so expensive!! :( Maybe because they know people like us will buy them either way because they are so tasty ;).
  • Dana @ Conscious Kitchen Blog November 6, 2013, 1:19 pm
    It's always nice to switch things up and showcase the weekend eats. I find that what I eat on Saturday and Sunday really differs from what I eat during the week... and that's not always a good thing. For whatever reason, it's so much easier for me to eat healthy during the week. Just something to work on I guess. :) Dana @ Conscious Kitchen Blog recently posted...WIAW #54: Whoa… it’s Wednesday?!My Profile
    • ClnEatingVegGrl November 6, 2013, 7:57 pm
      It is definitely much easier to eat less healthy on the weekends...likely because that is when we are most often tempted by eating out and treats!
  • Alisha @ Alisha's Appetite November 6, 2013, 2:40 pm
    Oh I love taking more time for my breakfasts on weekend mornings! And I'm totally intrigued with your bsquash and lentil loaf recipe! Alisha @ Alisha's Appetite recently posted...Treat Yo Self (or Treat Yo Dog?)My Profile
    • ClnEatingVegGrl November 6, 2013, 7:58 pm
      Yes, making "fancier" breakfasts on the weekends is always fun....and EXTRA tasty!
  • Becky@TheSavedRunner November 6, 2013, 4:01 pm
