WIAW: January 22, 2014

in Other

Ahh, Wednesday.  How I love thee.  Thursday and Friday are the best work days since they are so close to the weekend.  But I still really enjoy Wednesday.  Wednesday is when it all turns around.  Wednesday is when we reach that peak in the hill of the week and start to begin the downward  slide into the weekend.  Random, but typing that definitely made me think of skiing…which totally reminded me of the fact that the Olympics are starting soon.  I am a major Olympics junkie and will be glued to my TV during the month of February.  Anyone else share my love for the games?  I am partial to the Summer games, but the Winter games are still fantastic!

So now we have the weekend to look forward to, the Olympics to look forward to…and an entire day of delicious mostly plant-based eats!  Check ’em out!

What I Ate Wednesday Saturday

Breakfast

WIAW 12214 2

On Saturday morning I met up with Erin, Joanna, and Lindsay, Erin, and Elizabeth who I met through a local meet-up group.  We ate breakfast at Wheatfield’s, a local restaurant with deeelicious breakfast food!  I ordered two eggs over easy and hashbrowns, which I definitely topped off with lots of ketchup!  Does anyone else think ketchup is a must with breakfast potatoes?

On the side I had two pieces of toast topped with the best bumbleberry jam.  The jam is definitely one of my favorite things about Wheatfield’s.

Lunch

WIAW 12214 4

Lunch was a big ‘ol salad consisting of organic Romaine lettuce, alfalfa sprouts, red peppers, and a dressing I mixed up with avocado, apple cider vinegar, water, garlic, and lime juice.  Does anyone else eat their salads out of giant mixing bowls? 😉

WIAW 12214 3

On the side I ate a bowl of roasted French onion potatoes and brussel sprouts.  More on these on Monday!

Snacks

WIAW 12214 5

In the afternoon I snacked on a Golden Delicious apple with creamy almond butter.  I swear, I could drink that stuff right out of the jar ;).

WIAW 12214 6

I also ate a handful of raisins (yes Mom, I like raisins now!) to tide me over until dinner.

Dinner

tomato basil spaghetti squash 5

Dinner was a late one, but a good one.  I made tomato and basil spaghetti squash pasta.  Look for this recipe in the near future!

Snacks

WIAW 12214 7

In the evening I snacked on a bowl of fresh fruit.  In the mix was one clementine, strawberries, and black seedless grapes.  I am still majorly hooked on these grapes.

WIAW 12214 8

I saved the best for last with my late-night snack.  I “baked” a sweet potato in my microwave and topped it off with Justin’s maple almond butter.  It was so, so good!

    Eggs and toast is probably my favorite breakfast ever. I usually eat them on top of each other. I love sweet and salty. I'm making spaghetti squash tonight! Ashley @ Kick Ash Mom recently posted...Grape Fruit Chicken MarinadeMy Profile

      I loving putting dippy eggs on toast too! You need some bread to soak up the yolk with!
  • Kim @ BusyBod January 22, 2014, 7:10 am
    Looks like a delicious day of eats! I'm totally with you on the Olympics. It's funny, my favorite events are in the summer games, but there are more events overall that I like to watch in the winter games. So really, I get super pumped for both! Heading over to check out Kelly's blog now. I love finding new vegetarian bloggers! Kim @ BusyBod recently posted...Chef in the making & not so pretty eats {WIAW}My Profile

    You always eat such well balanced (and delicious) meals & snacks. Nothing beats apple slices and ab.. well carrots and ab are a close runner up :) Jessie recently posted...WIAW: January 19, 2014My Profile
    • ClnEatingVegGrl January 23, 2014, 2:12 pm
      I try ;)...but not always, haha! Can you believe I have never tried the carrots and AB combo? I really need to!
  • meredith @ The Cookie ChRUNicles January 22, 2014, 7:45 am
    I think I really like the word bumbleberry lol. I keep saying it over and over. I bet the jam is great too but the word bumbleberry is adorable. meredith @ The Cookie ChRUNicles recently posted...WIAW – What Your Cravings Are Telling YouMy Profile

      Isn't it so fun? I laugh a bit when I read/say it too!

    those brussel sprouts and potatoes....mmmmm
    • ClnEatingVegGrl January 23, 2014, 2:14 pm
      They are SO good! Recipe on Monday :).
  • Ang @ Nutty for Life January 22, 2014, 8:46 am
    Can I give you the award for prettiest toast I've ever seen? I am honestly not a huge Olympics fan but I do like to watch the hockey portion of the winter games because I am a big hockey fan. Also some of the Pgh Pens are playing so that's cool! And ice skating. That's a great segment too. I'm actually really hesitant about these games though because of all the turbulence that's been going on around them.. Ang @ Nutty for Life recently posted...My Skin Care RoutineMy Profile
    • ClnEatingVegGrl January 23, 2014, 2:28 pm
      Haha that toast IS pretty huh? Talk about BRIGHT pink! :)
  • Kathy @ Olives & Garlic January 22, 2014, 8:50 am
    Yummy eggs, salad, fruit, EVERYTHING. Just yumminess.

      Haha, it WAS a yummy day of eats!
  • Erin @ Girl Gone Veggie January 22, 2014, 9:22 am
    I want more of that jam! SO good! We really need to schedule a puppy and NEAT making party soon! Erin @ Girl Gone Veggie recently posted...January 2014 POPSUGAR Must Have Box ReviewMy Profile
    • ClnEatingVegGrl January 23, 2014, 3:52 pm
      Isn't it awesome?? And the puppies are gone :( haha..but we definitely SHOULD get together to make veggie burgers! I am SO excited to try that stuff!
  • Katie @ running4cupcakes January 22, 2014, 11:48 am
    That salad looks amazing. I love alpha sprouts!!
    • ClnEatingVegGrl January 23, 2014, 3:54 pm
      Me too! I really like them on sandwiches too!
  • Ashley @ Wishes and Dishes January 22, 2014, 12:12 pm

      Haha, I can't blame you there!! AB is ALWAYS a good thing :).
  • Ashlee@HisnHers January 22, 2014, 12:18 pm
    I love hashbrowns! I wish I could make them at home like restaurants do, but mine never turn out!
    • ClnEatingVegGrl January 23, 2014, 4:03 pm
      I hear ya! Mine never get as crispy as I want them too. That is probably why I almost always order them when I go out for breakfast.
  • Danica @ It's Progression January 22, 2014, 1:34 pm
    I absolutely love raisins too, especially during the wintertime - I throw them on top of oatmeal and cereal bowls. In the summertime I use them as long run/mid-run fuel! Danica @ It's Progression recently posted...12 Things Happy people do differently and WIAWMy Profile
    • ClnEatingVegGrl January 23, 2014, 4:04 pm
      I totally need to start adding them to my cereal. I bet that is super tasty!
  • Amanda @ .running with spoons. January 22, 2014, 2:05 pm
    Ketchup is a -must- on anything involving potatoes or eggs, imho. And I'm so with you on getting excited over the Olympics… even though I don't have cable so I'll probably have to go mooch off family and friends to get my fix :lol:
    • ClnEatingVegGrl January 23, 2014, 4:06 pm
      Well I sure hope you get your Olympics fix. You really cannot be missing out on that! Also, I love ketchup. I used to eat ketchup sandwiches as a child..yes, just bread and ketchup ;).
  • Jen@Twenty-Something&Starving January 22, 2014, 2:39 pm
    Yummmm I would seriously devour all of this. The whole day of food. Minus the ketchup. I'm a weirdo, I know. I can dunk my fries in it sometimes but that is literally the only time I will ever consider eating it. And I still actually prefer to dip my french fries in either honey or hot sauce!

    • ClnEatingVegGrl January 23, 2014, 4:07 pm
      Serious? Dang!! No ketchup love from you ;). I have never thought to dip my fries in honey, but I totally love the sweet/salty combo so I bet that is delicious!
  • Nicole @ FruitnFitness January 22, 2014, 3:08 pm
    I hate ketchup but those breakfast potatoes look good, as do the eggs. I usually eat salads off a big plate or bowl, if it's not a big serving dish I typically go back for more salad. Love almond butter and sweet potato, I have actually just eaten a sweet potato with peanut butter for an afternoon snack. Nicole @ FruitnFitness recently posted...WIAW – a cold dayMy Profile
    • ClnEatingVegGrl January 23, 2014, 4:07 pm
      I can't believe you do not like ketchup!! That is so crazy to me!! I suppose I will forgive you for that though ;).
  • Katie @ Daily Cup of Kate January 22, 2014, 8:49 pm
    Your eats look so yummy! I always forget how much I love spaghetti squash until I make some! Katie @ Daily Cup of Kate recently posted...I Did Something Crazy…My Profile
    • ClnEatingVegGrl January 23, 2014, 4:08 pm
      It is so good, right? I don't think I will ever get tired of it. I hate how expensive it gets when it is out of season though :(.
  • Robyn @thereallife_RD January 24, 2014, 8:47 am
    what a delicious day of eats! I love sweet potatoes with nutbutter and coconut butter, sometimes for breakfast too! looks like eats have increased friend, how wonderful!!! have a great weekend :)
    • ClnEatingVegGrl January 24, 2014, 1:34 pm
      They sure have...and partially as a result of some of your fantastic posts!! And I have totally been known to do the sweet potato/nut butter thing for breakfast..they are good EVERY time of day! You have a great weekend also :).
  • Jan @ Sprouts n Squats January 25, 2014, 8:05 pm
    That sweet potato looked amazing! Great idea to microwave it :) I need to try that avo dressing too! Behind on my blog reading so late comment! Jan @ Sprouts n Squats recently posted...Friday FavouritesMy Profile
    • ClnEatingVegGrl January 25, 2014, 8:46 pm
      I get really lazy when it comes to "baking" my potatoes..so into the microwave they go! ;)
  • Carly @ Snack Therapy January 27, 2014, 12:26 am
    Ketchup should be added to almost any kind of potato. Match made in heaven. That fruit also looks amazing. I'm diggin' the fresh strawbs. I can't wait until they're in season so they're cheap at the grocery store! Carly @ Snack Therapy recently posted...Currently: January 26My Profile
    • ClnEatingVegGrl January 27, 2014, 9:40 pm
      I am glad you love ketchup as much as I do. It amazes me how many people don't like it!! :(
  • Elyse @ Lizzie Fit January 28, 2014, 12:29 pm
