WIAW: June 4, 2014 (Recent Eats)

in Other

WIAW generalHappy Wednesday and What I Ate Wednesday!  It has been a busy last couple of weeks here in higher education land, so let’s keep things easy, short, and sweet.  Check out some of my most recent eats today and make sure you come back tomorrow for another edition of Three Cooks One Kitchen!

recent eats 2Last Thursday I cooked up a batch of veggie burgers that only contained three ingredients: cooked brown rice, black beans, and chipotle seasoning.  I saw the recipe in an issue of Women’s Health magazine and was eager to try it out since it sounded so simple.  The first night I dipped them in ketchup and paired them alongside mixed vegetables.

recent eats 4I ate the remaining two burgers from the batch on Friday and Saturday night.  This time, however, I served them in the more traditional form with lettuce, onion, mustard, and a bun.  I added a pickle on the side, too!  I loved them both ways, but was definitely digging the bun and burger toppings.  What can I say, I like my carbs.

recent eats 6I have still been going strong on the green smoothies and have been loving them even more now that the weather has been quite warm.

recent eats 5Throughout all last Fall and Winter, I got into a major rut when it came to cereal.  I just was not craving it at all.  But now that the warm Summer months are back, I have been eating it for about three to four breakfasts each week.  Two of my current favorites are Whole Foods 365 Brand Peanut Butter Balls and Kashi Heart to Heart Warm Cinnamon Oat Cereal.  Both are incredibly good and are even better when eaten together.  I never eat just one kind of cereal at a time.

recent eatsAnother recent dinner: homemade seitan dipped in barbecue sauce, a baby Yukon gold baked potato with vegan herb and chive cream cheese, and fresh cantaloupe.  It was the perfect Summertime meal!

recent eats 3Speaking of Summer… I finally got my hands on one of these!  I have started trying a lot of new-to-me beers over the past year, but my heart definitely still belongs to my good friend, Coors Light.  When I heard they were coming out with a Summer Brew, I knew I had to try it!  The verdict?  It was good, but not good.  It is one of those drinks that I would like to have one of but not many of.  It was a tad too sweet for my liking.  I think my boyfriend said it best when he said it reminded him of Fruity Pebbles!

recent eatsMore vegan French toast!  I am hooked!

my plate 2And finally… A little sneak peak at tomorrow’s Three Cooks One Kitchen post.  It is going to be a tasty one!

Have a great Wednesday, friends!

    I'm curious, do those veggie burgers hold together well... or no? I always hate when they fall apart so easily. Jessie recently posted...MyProtein Review and RecipeMy Profile

      These ones definitely do NOT hold together well. It was their only flaw :(

    Mmm that Kashi cereal looks good! I haven't tried that kind but I think I need to now :) Heather @fitncookies recently posted...#FuelYourBetter Vega SportMy Profile

      Yes! It is SO good!! I love the cinnamon flavor and it makes the leftover milk taste extra delicious!

    Omg we eat the exact same cereals!! haha They're both so good! Erin @ Girl Gone Veggie recently posted...Magimix Food Processor Review (and giveaway!)My Profile

      Yes, that is definitely try... which is great if you want Fruity Pebble-like tasting beer ;) Me... not so much!

    Excuse me while I drool allllll over this post. Holy smokes it all looks so freaking good! Those burgers alone are enough to make my tummy grumble. KAT recently posted...[WIAW] On RepeatMy Profile

      Haha!! I definitely have been eating well lately :) The burgers were delish!
  • Kelly @ hidden fruits and veggies June 4, 2014, 11:00 am
    I've seen that Coors and kept alllllmost buying it, but I don't really like Coors, so I didn't. I refuse to believe that something that tastes "kind of like fruity pebbles" isn't delicious -- fruity pebbles are my jam.
    • ClnEatingVegGrl June 4, 2014, 11:16 am
      I must agree that Fruitiy Pebbles ARE deeeelicious... however, I am not much of a fan of my beer tasting like it ;)
  • ChickGettinFit June 4, 2014, 12:57 pm
    It's so hard to find a good vegetarian burger patty and those definitely look like a winner! I may have to give those a try one day :) ChickGettinFit recently posted...WIAW #20–Same Old, Same OldMy Profile

      You totally should! They are SUPER easy to make which is a win-win!
  • meredith @ The Cookie ChRUNicles June 4, 2014, 1:21 pm
    I was going to ask if the burgers held together well but see you said in the comments that they didn't. Hmm, what do we add? Chia seeds/water in place of egg? Barbeque sauce? Something wet would probably bind it if balanced right with the rice? meredith @ The Cookie ChRUNicles recently posted...WIAW and National Running DayMy Profile
    • ClnEatingVegGrl June 6, 2014, 2:42 pm
      A chia or flax egg sounds promising, but I LOVE the bbq sauce idea because that sounds delicious! ;)
  • Vegan Breakfast June 4, 2014, 3:15 pm
    I've tried a few vegan burgers but these look way better than how mine have came out in the past! I'll have to give them a try :) Vegan Breakfast recently posted...3 Mindblowingly Scrumptious Vegan Cake RecipesMy Profile

      They are SUPER easy and delicious, so I bet you would enjoy them!!
  • Katie @ Daily Cup of Kate June 4, 2014, 3:56 pm
    I didnt even know Coors had a summer brew?! I will have to try it. I don't really like light beers, but if I had to choose one, it would be Coors! Katie @ Daily Cup of Kate recently posted...5 Reasons Why I RunMy Profile
    • ClnEatingVegGrl June 6, 2014, 2:43 pm
      I have started straying away from the "light" beers more now that I am an "adult" and out of college ;) but I definitely still like a good 'ole Coors Light now and then ;)
  • Alisha @ Alisha's Appetite June 4, 2014, 4:14 pm

      It was SO good! I am super glad I have finally started eating/making French toast again!
  • Faith VanderMolen June 4, 2014, 9:57 pm
    I've been wanting to make my own seitan and that recipe looks perfect. Super easy. Can't wait to give it a go! Faith VanderMolen recently posted...WIAW: Living out of a suitcase.My Profile
    • ClnEatingVegGrl June 6, 2014, 2:48 pm
      Do it!! I promise you it is SUPER easy! I was so mad that I waited so long to make my own. It is delicious too!
  • Alexis @ Hummusapien June 5, 2014, 7:58 am
    We were both totally riding the cereal train this week! Agreed--two kinds is always better than one :) P.S. Those burgs look phenom!
    • ClnEatingVegGrl June 6, 2014, 2:49 pm
      Yes!!! Eating only one kind at a time is SO wrong!!!
