WIAW: January 8, 2014 + Vegiversary!

in Other

Welcome to the first What I Ate Wednesday post of the year!  Exciting times, am I right? 😉  In all seriousness, I actually happen to think that food is pretty exciting, and I love seeing what other people eat in a day.  I guess that is what happens when you are a self-proclaimed foodie.  And for those of you who are also foodies, let’s take a look at What I Ate Wednesday the Day After Christmas (yes, I realize that was forever ago).

Oh, and before I forget: Have you entered my giveaway yet? 🙂


WIAW 1814

Two pieces toasted Ezekiel bread + 2 dippy eggs.

WIAW 1814 2

1 clementine, blackberries, and red seedless grapes.

Mid-Morning Snack

WIAW 1814 4

Sliced banana + peanut butter.


WIAW 1814 3

Butternut squash lentil loaf (from the freezer) with barbecue sauce + dill pickle + quinoa cranberry pecan salad leftover from Christmas dinner.

Afternoon Snacks

WIAW 1814 6

A Christmas sugar cookie.

WIAW 1814 7

A giant apple.  I don’t mess around with tiny ones.  Anyone else ever tried the Envy apples?  They are taaaasty!


WIAW 1814 5

Spaghetti squash pasta puttanesca.

Evening Snacks

WIAW 1814 8

Celery and baby carrots with roasted red pepper hummus.

WIAW 1814 9

More fruit!

WIAW 1814 10

TJ’s Crunchy Curls.  It had been awhile since I last had these and I think I am back to being hooked! 😉

WIAW general

And there you have it!  A day of almost-vegan eats (hey, you need some eggs and cookies now and then!).

And finally, I cannot go without giving mention to my vegiversary!  That’s right.  I have officially been a vegetarian for two years.  I cannot wait for many more delicious veggie-filled years ahead!

    Happy Vegeverary! All of your eats look great! Yes, I am jealous of your giant apple :) Ashley @ Kick Ash Mom recently posted...Get me out of hereMy Profile

      Thanks Ashley!! And I am glad you agree. Apples should NOT be tiny!
  • Kelly @ hidden fruits and veggies January 8, 2014, 7:15 am
    Happy Vegiversary! I hope you eat soemthing super delicious to celebrate. I'm beyond impressed at how healthy your day after Christmas was. I was in such a sugar coma from cookies that I think I slept until the middle of the day when I stumbled to the kitchen, made a grilled cheese, and then fell back asleep ;-)
    • ClnEatingVegGrl January 8, 2014, 1:49 pm
      Haha TOO funny!!! And now I am craving a grilled cheese ;).
  • Amanda @ .running with spoons. January 8, 2014, 7:18 am
    Well happy veggiversary to you! I always loved vegetarian cooking for how creative it was… I definitely miss the days where I could eat all veggie, but I can't deny that I feel better with some meat in my diet. Happy Wednesday, lady! xox
    • ClnEatingVegGrl January 8, 2014, 1:50 pm
      Thank you, Amanda! To each their own, right? What works best for one person and their body will certainly not be the same for another. Plus, you still get plenty of delicious veggies and eats in so I am sure you body is quite happy with your food choices!
  • Kim @ Hungry Healthy Girl January 8, 2014, 7:33 am
    What a yummy day of eats! I especially love the looks of that dinner and I've never heard of Envy apples. I'm not sure that they sell them in this area, but I'll keep my eye out. Have a great Wednesday!
    • ClnEatingVegGrl January 8, 2014, 1:51 pm
      Yes, keep your eyes peeled!! They are SUPER tasty!

    Delicious eats! That cookie and the breakfast especially made me drool. Spaghetti Squash season is unfortunately over here - sad face!! Lucie recently posted...WIAW#46 – My Vacation MealsMy Profile

      That is a serious bummer!! I am not looking forward to the day when they are out of season here in the states. I just can't justify spending 8 dollars on something that doesn't even taste that great :/.
  • Ang @ Nutty for Life January 8, 2014, 9:00 am
    I don't like tiny apples either!! Same with bananas. I was going to tweet something this morning like, "Puny bananas are the worst." because my dad bought some really tiny ones for us but then I realized it would sound really dirty if I said that... haha.

    • ClnEatingVegGrl January 8, 2014, 1:54 pm
      Haha, that is hilarious!! ;) And I agree. I am definitely the girl who looks for the biggest bananas and apples when I am at the grocery store..even if it means paying a little extra.

      Thank you!! They were quite tasty!
  • meredith @ The Cookie ChRUNicles January 8, 2014, 10:45 am
    Happy vegiversary! I like my apples as big as possible! I do buy the bags lately though of the little pink lady ones since my son likes to take them to school. I often slice them up for myself as well but in addition to my usual giant apple of the day, never a replacement! meredith @ The Cookie ChRUNicles recently posted...What I Ate Wednesday – Blinded By Oatmeal LoveMy Profile
    • ClnEatingVegGrl January 8, 2014, 1:55 pm
      No, they definitely can never be replaced. I actually get super sad when I am at the grocery store and I can only find small apples. It's just no good!! :(
  • Katie @ running4cupcakes January 8, 2014, 12:32 pm
    woo hoo - happy anniversary!!! I totally wish I loved dippy eggs - they always look soooo good!
    • ClnEatingVegGrl January 8, 2014, 1:56 pm
      Thanks Katie!! Ahh, what a bummer!! They are super tasty. In fact, they are one of the reasons why I haven't transitioned to a full vegan diet yet ;).
  • Dana @ Conscious Kitchen Blog January 8, 2014, 1:04 pm

  • Ms.J January 8, 2014, 11:41 pm
    Vegiversary!? How cool :D! Giant apples all the way.. tiny ones don't even taste that good now that I think of it. I'm a fan of Honeycrisp... does Envy have that lovely crispiness going on? Bananas and nut butter <3 - can never go wrong with a classic Ms.J recently posted...WIAW no rulesMy Profile
    • ClnEatingVegGrl January 9, 2014, 11:38 am
      I love Honeycrisp apples, too! The Envy apples are definitely crisp and also a bit sweeter. I love them!

  • Nicole @ FruitnFitness January 9, 2014, 8:46 am
    I had blackberries and a clementine as my night snack yesterday. Such a good combination. With how creative your recipes are I would have thought you had been a vegetarian for longer than two years. Nicole @ FruitnFitness recently posted...Thinking with SpoonsMy Profile
    • ClnEatingVegGrl January 9, 2014, 11:41 am
      I definitely think my recipes have come a long way from when I first started my blog. It is amazing how much I was forced to have to be creative once I adapted a vegetarian diet. Until then I just ate the same old boring thing. It has been really good for my creativity and recipe development.
  • Stephanie @ My Freckled Life January 9, 2014, 9:50 am
    Whoa, I've never seen those Crunchy Curls before! Definitely sound interesting! I've been hooked on veggie chips lately, so maybe I need a change. haha. Also, happy vegiversary! Stephanie @ My Freckled Life recently posted...30-Minute Salsa ChickenMy Profile
