WIAW: November 19, 2014 (Recent Eats)

in Other

It is Wednesday, friends!  We are about a week away from Thanksgiving, and one of the main things that I have on my brain is food.  That is totally natural during the holiday season, right?  Or maybe it is simply a result of having eaten some of the most delicious meals and snacks over the past week.  Lucky for you, I am going to let you in on some of these latest eats.  I hope you find some meal planning inspiration from this one!

wiaw-fall-into-good-habits-buttonWhat I Ate Wednesday: November 19, 2014 (Recent Eats)

wiaw 5Are you getting sick of seeing these acai bowls?  I sure hope not because I am far from sick of eating them.  These have literally become a Saturday morning ritual for me.  It is funny because I crave them even when it is 30 degrees outside!

pumpkin french toast sticks 13There is nothing better on a Sunday morning than Pumpkin Spice French Toast Sticks dipped in maple syrup.  Nothing.

wiaw 2It wouldn’t be a WIAW post without one of my daily green smoothies.  This one contained unsweetened vanilla almond milk, vanilla Vega One, frozen zucchini, frozen banana, frozen strawberries, and lots of fresh spinach.

wiaw 8One of the best breakfast accompaniments, in my opinion, is a bowl of scrambled eggs with veggies (broccoli this time) topped with sriracha sauce.

wiawA few nights ago I combined this pre-roasted ready-to-eat corn from Whole Foods…

wiaw 2…with one of these Green Chili and Cumin Adzuki Bean Burgers (which are awesome, by the way) to make a Mexican-style salad.

wiaw 3This is by far one of my favorite recent dinners…and it was SO easy to make!  My salads recently have gotten a bit boring, so these two new ingredients really spiced things up (literally).  The other ingredients in the mix were green lettuce, onions, red peppers, sauerkraut, soynuts, and Hilary’s vegan chia ranch dressing.  What can I say, I am a major fan of Hilary’s Eat Well products <– and no, this is not a sponsored post.

mollys quinoa bowl 2This deeeelicious sweet chili vegetable and quinoa bowl was SO good.  I’ll be sharing more about it on Friday.  Try to be patient! 😉

wiawMy easiest dinner of the week: a veggie Subway sandwich with an apple.  I ate this for the virtual Skype date that Jeremy and I had.

wiaw 3Some of the most amazing vegan tacos that I have ever made… with cauliflower!  I’ll share the recipe for these bad boys in the first week of December.  You are definitely going to want to check it out!

wiaw 4It wouldn’t be a Fall post without some spaghetti squash!  I made my Spaghetti Squash and Eggs with “Cheese” a few nights ago and it really hit the spot for a warm, cozy, and comforting meal.

wiaw 7This was one of my favorite dinners over the past week.  I made a Hilary’s Black Rice veggie burger with dill pickles and mustard.  I served it alongside homemade sweet potato fries and sauteed kale.  Everything about this was so good!

wiaw 6Last Thursday Joanna, Jordan, and I went to dinner at The Grey Plume.  I love The Grey Plume and always order the Vegetarian Sandwich (which changes almost weekly depending on which vegetables are in season).  Erin first introduced me to it and I fell in love at first bite.  On this specific visit, I ordered it alongside a cup of the creamiest broccoli cheese soup.  The soup was absolutely perfect on a super cold night.

wiaw 10I shared Alexis’s Lentil, Kale, & Salsa Verde Enchiladas in a past Friday Foodie Favorites post because I LOVE them.  I made them again on Saturday night and have been eating the leftovers throughout this week.  They are so good.  You must try them if you haven’t already.

wiawBuffalo tofu wings happened… again.  I cannot get enough of these.  I could honestly eat them every single day of the week.  It may or may not be due to the fact that I love buffalo sauce and I have finally perfected my tofu-cooking method.

wiaw 4Grapes for a snack never ever get old.  This has become a nightly thing for me- normally paired with salty popcorn!

wiawI went through a huge phase about 6 months ago where I was eating carrots with hummus every. single. day.  I eventually tired of it, but the craving is back!  This time I dipped my baby carrots into a spicy red pepper hummus.

wiaw 2And here is the popcorn (paired with the grapes above)!  I eat popcorn about 4 to 5 nights per week as my snack before bed.  It never ever gets old.  I suppose it helps that I am always switching up the flavors that I eat.

wiaw 9This is my favorite way to jazz up eating an apple for a snack.  I peal and dice it, microwave it for about 60 seconds, and top it with cinnamon, nut butter, and vegan chocolate.  It tastes like heaven.

wiaw 2It may not be Summer anymore, but I am still enjoying Lucky Bucket’s Belly Flop beer.

There you have it!  A post full of SO many delicious recent eats.  I hope everyone has a great Wednesday 🙂

Name your favorite breakfast that you ate over the past week.  I am looking for some new ideas!

    Fact: You eat such a great variety of delicious meals. I can't even begin to tell you who much inspiration these posts of yours give to me & our weekly meal plan for the week. Looking forward to the vegetarian tacos. I'm incredibly intrigued since the main ingredient is cauliflower.
    • ClnEatingVegGrl November 19, 2014, 8:13 am
      Yeah, I'm not sure how I came up with cauliflowers for tacos... but I am loving it! I'll have it up over the next couple of weeks :)
  • Stacie @ SimplySouthernStacie November 19, 2014, 6:33 am
    Everything looks so good, but naturally the thing that really speaks to me is the Subway sandwich haha. I used to live on their veggie subs back in the day. Stacie @ SimplySouthernStacie recently posted...Marathon Training Update (Or Lack Thereof)My Profile

      I really love their veggie subs. I ALWAYS get them when I am road tripping because it is the only "fast" food that I can and will eat.
  • Rebecca @ Strength and Sunshine November 19, 2014, 6:47 am
    Well your food looks all so beautifully delicious! (I am still drooling over the french toast!) Haha, that corn...is to cute! :P
    • ClnEatingVegGrl November 19, 2014, 8:38 am
      Isn't it? I saw it at Whole Foods in the produce section and was feeling exceptionally lazy, so I figured it would be the perfect salad topper!

  • Sarah @ Making Thyme for Health November 19, 2014, 5:10 pm
    I haven't had french toast stick in forever and those pumpkin ones look so good it makes me want to cry! lol My breakfasts are so boring but I did start using a cashew macadamia nut butter that is amazing! I top a whole grain english muffin with that and hemp seeds and I'm good to go. :) Sarah @ Making Thyme for Health recently posted...Cauliflower Potato and Leek SoupMy Profile
    • ClnEatingVegGrl November 19, 2014, 6:05 pm
      Oh my goodness, that sounds awesome!! I LOVE cashew butter, so cashew macadamia nut butter sounds amaaaazing. What brand is it?
      • Sarah @ Making Thyme for Health November 19, 2014, 6:28 pm
        It's actually a local Northern California company called Anna's Choice. I found it at Whole Foods but I'm not sure if they're selling it nation wide yet. They should though because it's amazing! Sarah @ Making Thyme for Health recently posted...Cauliflower Potato and Leek SoupMy Profile
        • ClnEatingVegGrl November 19, 2014, 8:52 pm
          Aww, bummer! I hope they do soon!
  • Dana November 19, 2014, 8:49 pm
    I must try your apple snack. I made a fantastic batch of applesauce once - it had like 10 apples in it and took me about an hour to prep. And lasted 2-3 days. Some things are not worth the effort for everyday eating.
    • ClnEatingVegGrl November 19, 2014, 9:42 pm
      Have you ever made slow cooker applesauce? I love it! But yes... the apples with nut butter and chocolate are PERFECT for a snack because it all comes together in under 5 minutes!
  • Kaylin @ Enticing Healthy Eating November 19, 2014, 10:50 pm
    Oh, I am a popcorn freak, I swear. I eat it just about every day! I like the simple and healthy method of just popping it in a brown paper bag in the microwave. :) Kaylin @ Enticing Healthy Eating recently posted...Life Lately: 4 YearsMy Profile
    • ClnEatingVegGrl November 20, 2014, 10:28 pm
      I haven't tried it in the brown paper bag yet... for some reason it scares me! haha... I need to get over it and try it! ;)
  • Miss Polkadot November 20, 2014, 12:18 am
    Whyyyy are you that creative with your meals and I'm too lazy/tired? My weekday food hardly looks this good. I feel you should start a meal delivery Service. I'll order those enchiladas first, please ;) .

  • EVA November 23, 2014, 4:19 pm
    Ooooh, that Grey Plume platter looks KILLER. If only I could have dairy, I'd probably live off of broccoli cheese soup! And I've always wondered about the Whole Foods pre-prepped vacuum packed produce like that there corn. It's too expensive for me as I'd eat the whole pack in one go, but glad to know it's actually good! And favorite breakfast....I made some vegan quick bread with blueberry soy yogurt instead of the fat; then I top the slab with an Earth-sized glob of almond butter. So simple, yet I've been too obsessed. I need to forget this breakfast exists!
    • ClnEatingVegGrl November 23, 2014, 7:45 pm
      That breakfast sounds awesome!! Also, have you found any vegan broccoli cheese soup recipes? I know they exist (maybe try one made creamy with cashews?)... let me know if you find/try one!
