WIAW: November 27, 2013

in Other

Happy Wednesday (though it really feels like Friday), friends!  Only four hours of work stand between me and a four and a half day weekend.  Noon cannot come soon enough.  But before we get the Thanksgiving party started, let’s stop by the What I Ate Wednesday party!  It has been a couple of weeks since I have joined in, so I am excited to get back in there.  Check out What I Ate Wednesday Saturday:


Breakfast #1 was eaten at 6:20 a.m. before heading to the Y to swim laps for the first time in over a year…talk about a humbling experience!

WIAW 112713A green monster smoothie with unsweetened vanilla almond milk, vanilla Vega One, frozen banana, frozen blueberries, frozen cranberries, and a whoooole lotta spinach!

After coming back from my workout and hopping in the shower, I made cocoa blueberry buckwheat pancakes.

WIAW 112713 3I topped them off with peanut butter and more blueberries.  These were awesome.  Buckwheat flour and I are quickly becoming best friends.


WIAW 112713 4A sliced banana.


friday favorites brussel sprout bbq pizzaRoasted brussel sprout, barbecue, and cheddar “cheese” pizza (more on this in a future Friday Favorites post).  I ate two more slices after this one! 🙂

Afternoon Snacks

WIAW 112713 6Half of a bag of Salt’n Vinegar almonds (absolutely obsessed with these)…

WIAW 112713 5…mixed with some raisins.  I love the salty and sweet combination of the two.  It is funny to think that I actually love raisins when I used to hate them.  It’s crazy how our taste buds can change.

WIAW 112713 7I also ate a sliced apple dipped in some crunchy Nuttzo nut and seed butter and drank an orange La Croix sparkling water (unpictured).


WIAW 112713 8For dinner, I ate some spinach squash fritters (more on these in a future Friday Favorites post, as well!) topped off with a runny dippy egg.  SO good!

Evening Snacks

WIAW 103013 5In the evening I snacked on a veggie/hummus plate…

WIAW 112713 2…and a bowl of strawberries, black grapes (still obsessed with these!), and a Cutie.  Is anyone else super excited about the fact that Cuties are back?

WIAW 7313 8I finished the evening off with a giant bowl (it was more than just this in the picture!) of air-popped popcorn.  I topped it off with coconut oil spray, sea salt, nutritional yeast, onion powder (if you haven’t added this to popcorn yet, you need to!), curry powder, and dill.  Sounds like a strange combination, I know, but I am hooked on it.

WIAW generalAnd that wraps up a full day of my eats.  Have a great Wednesday!  I hope you all have short work days like I do and can rest up for a full day of cooking and eating tomorrow :).

      Isn't it SO cute? My best friend LOVES penguins so I always think of her when I use it :).
  • Amanda @ .running with spoons. November 27, 2013, 6:45 am
    I used to hate raisins as well. I remember getting them in my Halloween stash and giving the stank eye to the people who were handing them out. But now? Love em! And you're right -- they're SO good paired with almonds.
    • ClnEatingVegGrl November 29, 2013, 8:44 am
      Yay for raisins! They are SO underrated!
  • Jessie November 27, 2013, 7:00 am
    I can hardly wait for all of these future posts - I mean that pizza... I don't know how you stopped @ just two slices. It sounds delicious!! Jessie recently posted...WIAW: The White BowlMy Profile

      Haha, I only used self control so that way I could have leftovers! ;)
  • Kelly @ hidden fruits and veggies November 27, 2013, 7:05 am
    I haven't seen cuties yet, but SO excited for when I find them!
    • ClnEatingVegGrl November 29, 2013, 8:45 am
      They are SO good now!! I hope you find them soon.
  • meredith @ The Cookie ChRUNicles November 27, 2013, 7:26 am

      Brussel sprouts are SO good...and unfortunately so underrated!
  • Kim @ Hungry Healthy Girl November 27, 2013, 7:55 am
    Love the look of those buckwheat pancakes! I agree with you, it is strange how you're tastes can change over time. I'm hoping this time comes very soon for some really picky kiddos. ;) Have a SUPER great Thanksgiving! Kim @ Hungry Healthy Girl recently posted...Gearing up for Turkey Day!My Profile
    • ClnEatingVegGrl November 29, 2013, 8:48 am
      Haha, don't worry ...there is still hope for them! I was a picky eater until just a few years ago and I turned it all around :).
  • Katie @ running4cupcakes November 27, 2013, 8:31 am
    I LOVE cuties - they are seriously the highlight of my winter, is that sad? ;)
    • ClnEatingVegGrl November 29, 2013, 8:50 am
      Haha, definitely not! They are one of the best wintertime foods.
  • Melanie @ Beautifully Nutty November 27, 2013, 8:50 am
    The salt and vinegar almonds are my FAVORITE and now that they're gone I can't find them anywhere in the stores! If you find them somewhere, let me know! What a delicious day of eats! Melanie @ Beautifully Nutty recently posted...WIAW: Sweet Potato Nachos & Five a DayMy Profile
    • ClnEatingVegGrl November 29, 2013, 8:51 am
      I know, right? That was my last package and I haven't seem them anywhere either :(.
  • Christine @ Gotta Eat Green November 27, 2013, 11:11 am
    Salt’n Vinegar almonds sound amazing!! I need to get my hands on those. Christine @ Gotta Eat Green recently posted...Weekend Recap + Weekly Plan November 25 – December 1My Profile
    • ClnEatingVegGrl November 29, 2013, 8:52 am
      They are so, SO good!! I have had a really hard time finding them in the stores, though. Those are leftover from my HLS swag bag.
  • Holly @ EatGreatBEGreat November 27, 2013, 11:12 am
    Well, your egg turned out so much better than mine! There definitely is an art to making a fried egg and I totally haven't gotten that down yet. Ha! I've still been on this major pancake kick! I made them Monday morning and this morning for breakfast. I love how you can do so many different things with them. Adding blueberries is always a win! I love your pizza! What an interesting and delicious combo! Holly @ EatGreatBEGreat recently posted...WIAW #23 – Peanut Butter and ChocolateMy Profile
    • ClnEatingVegGrl November 29, 2013, 8:52 am
      Pancakes are definitely one of the most versatile AND delicious foods! I'm totally hooked on them right now.
  • Martha November 27, 2013, 11:45 am
    When I was a kid we only ate buckwheat pancakes. That was the kind your Granddad wanted. Who knew he ate so healthfully.
    • ClnEatingVegGrl November 29, 2013, 8:53 am
      Haha, who knew?? What a smart man he was!
  • Nicole @ FruitnFitness November 27, 2013, 11:51 am
    That popcorn sounds good! I love adding nooch and spices to popcorn. Swimming is really hard! I was swimming some this spring when I was in the boot, I was always exhausted at the end. I hope you have a great half day today and thanksgiving tomorrow! Nicole @ FruitnFitness recently posted...Trying new things – Buffalo Chicken EnchiladasMy Profile

      Swimming is definitely tough! It's one of those sports that is a lot more difficult than it looks!

  • Sam @ Better With Sprinkles November 27, 2013, 2:31 pm
    raisins are one of those snacks that I love but always forget about...thanks for the reminder! And I can't remember the last time I had popcorn, something else I need to have soon! Sam @ Better With Sprinkles recently posted...WIAW: Meatless Monday.My Profile
    • ClnEatingVegGrl November 29, 2013, 8:57 am
      Yes, you definitely should! And now that you say that, I am thinking the popcorn/raising combination would be really good. Salty and sweet is always a winner to me :).
  • Jan @ Sprouts n Squats November 27, 2013, 2:38 pm
    Lunch and dinner you are killing me with more on that in future posts as both look amazing!!! I've not tried making pancakes with buckwheat flour before but really should try it. Jan @ Sprouts n Squats recently posted...Old school style – WIAWMy Profile
