It is Wednesday, friends. But let me let you in on a little secret. Today is actually sort of my Friday! This afternoon I am leaving for a conference I am presenting at (wish me luck!) for work in Des Moines through Friday and then I’ll be home for Memorial Day weekend. In other words, I will not be back in the office until Tuesday. Having almost a week away is going to be really nice. Let’s just hope that I am not super behind when I return.
But let’s not think about work. Instead, let’s talk about food. So far, all of my What I Ate Wednesday posts have been centered around a single day. Today I am going to mix things up a bit and feature several of my recent eats. Oh, and if you make it all the way to the bottom, then you can enter into a taaaasty giveaway. Everyone likes a giveaway, right?
What I Ate Wednesday: Recent Eats
This is definitely one of my current favorite breakfasts: a toasted English muffin topped with my Horseradish and Garlic Pea Spread, a dippy egg, and cottage cheese. I buy the no-salt-added cottage cheese and add in black pepper and a bit of sea salt so that I can control the amount of salt that goes into it. If you did not already know, most brands of cottage cheese contain a TON of sodium.
Chocolate chip banana bread waffle topped with peanut butter for Sunday’s breakfast.
My Butternut Squash Lentil Loaf with barbecue sauce and a side of veggies.
And a vegan burger on a whole wheat bun with spinach, tomato, red onions, and mustard. A pickle on the side, too, of course!
Last night I cooked up one of the new Black Rice Burgers from Hilary’s Eat Well for a quick, easy, and delicious dinner because I had a lot to accomplish and very little time for cooking anything elaborate. Lucky for me, this definitely tasted like it took longer than 10 minutes to make. I tried Hilary’s Eat Well burgers for the first time a few months ago and have been in love since. I am in love with the fact that they only contain real ingredients that I can actually pronounce. I am in love with the fact that they are vegan. I am in love with the fact that they are soy-free, gluten-free, and non-GMO. I am in love with the fact that these are made with Lotus Foods Rice, which is a company that uses a sustainable process when growing their rice. And if those reasons have not convinced you yet, how about the fact that you can make them in the toaster?! <– That alone is reason enough to buy these. Oh, and I cannot forget to mention that they taste good, which is obviously a must for me!
So I realize that essentially this post was just one giant tease. And since I cannot be that mean to you, I am going to soften things up by sharing a giveaway with all of you! Sounds fair, right?
