WIAW: January 29, 2014

in Other

Guess what, friends?  We have almost made it…to the end of January, that is!  I think most of us can agree that January is not the most fabulous month ever (especially if you live in a cold climate), so to say that I am excited about this being the last Wednesday of January would be an understatement.  In celebration of it being Wednesday and almost being February, let’s check out a full day of my latest eats!

What I Ate Wednesday Sunday

Breakfast

WIAW 121813 9

I started my day off with a tasty green smoothie!  In the mix was unsweetened vanilla almond milk, french vanilla Vega One, frozen banana, frozen cranberries, frozen blueberries, and tons of spinach.  I swear, just about every smoothie that I make has at least 3-4 cups of spinach in it..and I love it!

pb blueberry banana sandwich 7

Ohhh, yes!  The second part of my breakfast was a delicious grilled breakfast sandwich with nut butter and fruit.  More on this baby in a future post!

Lunch

curried spaghetti squash 4

Lunch was a giant serving of a new dish I cooked up on Sunday.  Think Indian-inspired spaghetti squash.  More on this recipe in a future post!

Snacks

WIAW 12914

Afternoon snackage was a sliced Fuji apple dipped in chunky cashew butter.  Holy yum!

WIAW 12914 2

I also drank a Zevia cola.  I like many of the flavors, but I think I will always be a cola girl.  Zevia and I have become best friends on Sunday afternoons.

Dinner

WIAW 12914 4

Dinner was two white bean burgers (more on these in a future Friday Foodie Favorites post!) with barbecue sauce, cooked broccoli, and a dill pickle spear.

Snacks

WIAW 12914 5

Baby carrots and sugar snap peas with garlic hummus.

WIAW 12914 7

Fresh strawberries and green grapes.

WIAW 12914 6

And a big ‘ole bowl of popcorn!

There is nothing quite like rounding out your week with a great day of eats!

Also, sorry for so many recipe teasers ;).  They will make their way to the blog soon enough!

    If there's one month out of the year that I don't like, it's January, without a doubt! It just feels like it's never going to end and while I try not to live by wishing away time, I'm very grateful January is just about to an end. I'm ready for Valentine's Day, some weekend trips coming up, and, of course, the weather warming up soon!! Danica @ It's Progression recently posted...mostly dinners! {wiaw}My Profile

      I SO hear you. Before we know it it will be February! :) Of course then I'll be hoping for Spring time ;).

      Spinach in smoothies is a MUST!! It still amazes me every time that you can't even taste it!
  • Jessie January 29, 2014, 7:53 am
    I've heard of all kinds of veggie burgers, but never white bean. Looking forward to seeing the recipe in the near future - or so I hope :) Jessie recently posted...Tuesday’s Meals & a RecipeMy Profile
    • ClnEatingVegGrl January 29, 2014, 8:42 pm
      Haha..you will! It's actually not mine, but will be on one of my Friday Foodie Favorites posts. And trust me, white beans in bean burgers are SO good. These are my new favorites!
  • Ashley January 29, 2014, 8:03 am

      Thanks Ashley!! I definitely get in those ruts, too, but I like to try to mix things up on the weekends!

    • ClnEatingVegGrl January 29, 2014, 9:07 pm
      I SO agree. I love it so much that I like to eat it for dinner quite frequently, too!
  • Ang @ Nutty for Life January 29, 2014, 8:36 am
    This was funny to me because literally on every thing that you said "more on that in a later post" right before I read those words I was like "ooooh what's in that!" You tease! Ang @ Nutty for Life recently posted...Homemade Coconut ButterMy Profile

  • Courtney @RunningforCupcakes January 29, 2014, 9:46 am
    So excited for the white bean burger recipe, and you just made me crave spaghetti squash :)
    • ClnEatingVegGrl January 29, 2014, 9:11 pm
      They are both GOOD ones!! Isn't spaghetti squash so delicious? It is amazing the numerous ways that it can be made, too! I will forever be hooked on it. I am going to be super sad when it is out of season and super expensive :(.
  • Ashlee@HisnHers January 29, 2014, 9:56 am
    That breakfast sandwich looks SO good. I'll have to keep my eye out for that. Can you believe I've never had Indian food?! Ashlee@HisnHers recently posted...WIAW: Fasting Isn’t FunMy Profile

  • Jen@Twenty-Something&Starving January 29, 2014, 10:30 am
    I couldn't be happier that January is almost over. That means (hopefulllly) only one and a half or two months of serious cold weather. Your smoothie looks great! I can't bring myself to drink a smoothie when it's 8 degrees outside though. Sooooooooon! Jen@Twenty-Something&Starving recently posted...Coulda Been Worse – What I Ate Wednesday #12My Profile
    • ClnEatingVegGrl January 29, 2014, 9:14 pm
      I hear you. I am SO over Winter and ready for Spring! My smoothie addiction is BAD...I majorly crave them even when it is freezing cold outside.
  • Dana @ Conscious Kitchen Blog January 29, 2014, 11:01 am

  • Sarah@creatingbettertomorrow January 29, 2014, 1:25 pm
    I just tried to make my hubby a grilled nut butter + banana sandwich...my mom used to always make them for us...he said he'd never heard of such a thing and didn't think it'd be good...now I know I'm not nuts and indeed they are delicious no matter what he thinks!
    • ClnEatingVegGrl January 29, 2014, 9:16 pm
      They SO are!! I think maybe he is a bit nuts for not wanting to try it ;).
  • Jackie January 29, 2014, 2:46 pm

    Cashew butter! Did you make it yourself or buy it somewhere? Leslee @ Her Happy Balance recently posted...Hard Rock & Metal Workout PlaylistMy Profile
    • ClnEatingVegGrl January 29, 2014, 9:22 pm
      I bought it back when Jif first came out with it and I had a really great coupon for it. It is not quite as natural as I would like, but it is REALLY tasty!
  • Kim @ Hungry Healthy Girl January 29, 2014, 7:26 pm
    I LOVE the looks of that breakfast sandwich.... can't wait for the details. Also, that pink fruit bowl is super cute! Kim @ Hungry Healthy Girl recently posted...Cooking and More Cooking (What I Ate Wednesday)My Profile

    I've seen so many spaghetti squash recipes! Sadly, my oven is out of commission until I move in ONE month! I've been enjoying protein smoothies for breakfast too! Julie recently posted...WIAW: Fit Expo reviewsMy Profile
    • ClnEatingVegGrl February 2, 2014, 9:18 pm
      That sounds seriously awful!! I would be lost without my oven :(.
  • Ashley @ Wishes & Dishes January 30, 2014, 1:11 am
    I'm loving green smoothies lately...I have one every day! Let's see how long I can keep up this streak :)
    • ClnEatingVegGrl February 2, 2014, 9:19 pm
      I totally understand! You can do it!! Just think about how good they are for you and how tasty they are!
  • Carly @ Snack Therapy January 31, 2014, 11:40 pm
    That Boom Chicka Pop popcorn rocks. It tastes so much better than microwave popcorn. Your breakfast smoothie is awesome. I love adding tons of greens to my smoothies. It makes the bod feel so good! I can't wait for the Indian Spaghetti Squash recipe! Carly @ Snack Therapy recently posted...January Review: Five Things FridayMy Profile
    • ClnEatingVegGrl February 2, 2014, 9:20 pm
      Boom Chicka Pop is awesome!! Have you tried the lightly sweetened version that is out now? It is AWESOME!
