WIAW: May 28, 2014 (Recent Eats) + Giveaway Winners

in Other

It is that time again!  It is time for Wednesday and it is time for What I Ate Wednesday.

I have been doing a lot of thinking lately, and I wanted to let you know that for the most part I think my What I Ate Wednesday posts are going to be a bit different from now on.  I experimented with a “Recent Eats” post last week and I have decided that I much prefer that concept for two main reasons:

1. I have become really bad about remembering to take pictures of an entire day of eats.

2. I believe that chronicling an entire day of eats can sometimes lead to unnecessary comparisons within the blogging world- by both myself and others.

As a result, from here on out I think that I am mostly going to develop my What I Ate Wednesday posts around “Recent Eats,” many of which may or may not fall on the same day.  I promise you will still see some good eating and snacking ideas!

What I Ate Wednesday: Recent Eats

recent eatsBuffalo cauliflower “wings” happened again!  This time with a side of peas.

recent eats 2I ate this for a snack, but mostly ate around the majority of the walnuts.  I don’t know why, but I am really just not much of a walnut person.

recent eats 3This is definitely one of my current favorite breakfasts: Toasted Ezekiel bread with crunchy peanut butter and cinnamon.  I ate some green grapes on the side.

recent eates motosMy favorite pizza in the entire world.

recent eats motos2And another delicious vegetarian creation.  A restaurant that only serves vegetarian pizza is a restaurant after my own heart.

recent eats ice creamIt had been so long since I had this ice cream.  A scoop of birthday cake ice cream on the bottom and a scoop of chocolate peanut butter on the top!

recent eats 52814 8A veggie sub from Subway on my drive back to Omaha on Monday.

recent eatsOne of my favorite snacks from last Summer is back!  Corn/quinoa cakes topped with garlic and herb vegan cream cheese, sliced tomatoes, and sea salt.  This is also incredible on Wasa crackers.

recent eats 2My Lentil and Cabbage Casserole.  This is one of my favorite veggie and protein-packed dinners.

WIAW generalAnd finally… the three winners of the Hilary’s Eat Well veggie burgers giveaway are: Caitlin, Catherine, and Erin!  Congrats!  All winners have been e-mailed.

    Do you know I had a head of cauliflower and once again forget to make the wings? lol. I also meant to process it into rice and didn't do that either. I always forget and just cut it up to roast it. I think I am lazy. meredith @ The Cookie ChRUNicles recently posted...WIAW – Finally Used My Frozen BananasMy Profile

      Haha, it's okay... I get lazy with cauliflower sometimes too! I have to say that cauliflower "rice" is delicious, but it is a pain to make and I always make a mess!
  • Kelly @ Kelly Runs For Food May 28, 2014, 8:11 am
    Whatever is on that veggie pizza looks amazing! I'm also a huge fan of Ezekiel toast with PB. I like to top it with banana slices! Kelly @ Kelly Runs For Food recently posted...WIAW- Panera EditionMy Profile

      Somehow I ALWAYS forget to put banana slices on my pb toast. I really need to change that!

    I'm a fan of the Subway! ;) Divya @ Eat. Teach. Blog. recently posted...Best and Worst of this Makeshift MondayMy Profile

      Subway is definitely my favorite "fast food" place to visit since it is quite vegetarian friendly!
  • Joanna @Makingmine May 28, 2014, 8:48 am
    I think the "recent eats" concept is a good idea! Props to you for even remembering to take photos at all :) I'm going to have to start stealing ideas for Eleanor's snacks - I'm getting pretty bored of preparing her the same rotation of foods, and most of your eats are within her dietary restrictions!

      Eleanor and I can be eating buddies!! ;)
  • Jessie May 28, 2014, 9:22 am
    Love all of Ezekiel Bread flavors. I think the cinnamon raisin is probably my favorite. What about you? :) Jessie recently posted...#fuelyourbetter: Vega Sport Performance Protein + RecipeMy Profile
    • ClnEatingVegGrl May 28, 2014, 11:01 am
      Isn't it crazy that I have not tried the cinnamon raisin flavor yet?? I LOVE the 7 grain one and the low-sodium one!
  • Sam @ Better With Sprinkles May 28, 2014, 9:23 am
    I'm with you on the walnut thing - I'm not the biggest fan. Although candied walnuts, I can get behind! Sam @ Better With Sprinkles recently posted...WIAW: Warm Weather Eats.My Profile
    • ClnEatingVegGrl May 28, 2014, 7:24 pm
      Haha, I am thinking I could get behind those too!! A little sugary goodness makes everything better!
  • Kelly @ hidden fruits and veggies May 28, 2014, 10:53 am
    I ate cauliflower buffalo "wings" for the time time last week - loooooove `em!
    • ClnEatingVegGrl May 28, 2014, 7:27 pm
      Aren't they so good?? I am glad you tried them!
  • Katie @ running4cupcakes May 28, 2014, 12:35 pm
    That ice cream combo sounds fantastic!!
    • ClnEatingVegGrl May 28, 2014, 7:28 pm
      Both were SO awesome! I can never pick just one flavor ;)
  • Amanda @ .running with spoons. May 28, 2014, 1:19 pm
    I've been toying with the idea of switching over to recent eats as well, but I kind of like to get everything out of the way in one day. We'll see! Either way, all your eats look delicious :)
    • ClnEatingVegGrl May 28, 2014, 7:29 pm
      You should give it a try and see which version you like better. I have found it nice to not have to freak out when I forget to take pictures of half of my meals ;) haha
  • Ashley May 28, 2014, 1:32 pm
    Oh man, now I want ice cream! And that pizza!! haha And I just finished eating lunch : ) Ah well. I love peanut butter with a little cinnamon on toast - one of my go-to breakfasts as well! Ashley recently posted...Lemon Coconut Chia Seed Energy BitesMy Profile
    • ClnEatingVegGrl May 28, 2014, 7:31 pm
      I definitely have been eating some GOOD food lately. It is always fun to make others hungry ;)
  • Sabrina @ Nutritiously Sweet May 28, 2014, 1:59 pm
    I do the same thing! I can never remember to take every single picture anymore so I just snap what looks good or random foods! It's more fun that way I think :) Sabrina @ Nutritiously Sweet recently posted...WIAW #100: Happy 100th WIAW to Me!My Profile
    • ClnEatingVegGrl May 28, 2014, 7:32 pm
      Yes, it is definitely A LOT more fun and easier for me, that's for sure!
  • Nicole @ FruitnFitness May 28, 2014, 2:09 pm

    Recent eats sounds like a great idea! I like that Ezekiel bread! Ashley @ Wishes & Dishes recently posted...Homemade Condensed Cream of Mushroom SoupMy Profile
    • ClnEatingVegGrl May 28, 2014, 7:33 pm
      Ezekiel bread is the BEST! It cracks me up because I used to HATE anything that was not white bread. Silly me ;)
  • Heather May 28, 2014, 3:23 pm
    great idea for the rice cakes!!
    • ClnEatingVegGrl May 30, 2014, 4:58 pm
      Thank you!! I love find interesting and new ways to top mine. They are SO versatile.
  • Erin @ Girl Gone Veggie May 28, 2014, 4:09 pm
    Wohooo!! I'm so excited I won!! Thanks so much. I literally jumped around the kitchen when I found out. Josh thought I was crazy. ;p
    • ClnEatingVegGrl May 28, 2014, 7:34 pm
      Haha! I can picture it now! I bet it was an awesome site ;) And since he thought you were crazy, that means you do not have to share with him ;)
  • Rebecca @ Strength and Sunshine May 28, 2014, 8:20 pm
    Walnuts are not my fave either. They rank last on my but love scale ;) They are just not very good. Rebecca @ Strength and Sunshine recently posted...More Than Carrot Cake GranolaMy Profile

  • Alisha @ Alisha's Appetite May 29, 2014, 9:35 am
    I've been wanting to try the buffalo cauliflower forever. I need to take the plunge they look so good!
    • ClnEatingVegGrl May 31, 2014, 11:09 am
      Do it! I waited so long to try it and now that I have I am kicking myself for not doing it sooner. It is a seriously delicious way to eat cauliflower.
