What I Ate Wednesday: December 17, 2014 (Recent Eats)

in Other

There are officially only seven days until Christmas Eve.  That is one week, people!  How crazy is that?  That also means that there are only two weeks until New Years Eve, which means we are so close to the year 2015.  I don’t know about you, but 2014 has flown by for me.

How about I don’t get too far ahead of myself just yet, though.  The Christmas season is, after all, one of my favorite times of year.  I definitely do not want to be wishing it away.  So instead, let’s focus on something that will keep my mind off of my upcoming Christmas vacation: food!

What I Ate Wednesday: December 17, 2014 (Recent Eats)

WIAW 1Obsessed would be an understatement.  I made my 15-Minute Cauliflower and Corn Tacos for dinner last week.  They are one of my favorite meals right now.

WIAW 4Veggie-filled individual pizzas on tortillas are my favorite quick and easy week-night meal.

WIAW 7An apple a day keeps Hannah happy!

WIAW 5Steamed brussel sprouts topped with sea salt and black pepper right out of the microwave.  Can you see the steam?

PB chocolate french toast 4A deeelicious stack of peanut butter and chocolate French toast… coming ‘atcha soon!

WIAW 6Raw veggies dipped in hummus have been one of my go-to snacks lately.

WIAW 1I don’t just love snacking on veggies.  Fruit is another go-to for me.  I am still loving red grapes, and now Cuties are back in my life.  I am awfully excited about this!

WIAW 2Go Veggie! sent me some of their dairy-free cheese to try out…

WIAW 3I used the pepper jack flavor to make my Spaghetti Squash with Eggs and “Cheese.”  While the slices did not melt as quite as much as I had hoped, the slightly spicy flavor was delicious.  It worked really well with the sriracha sauce that I drizzled on top.

WIAW 2I am going to shock you with this one.  I ate my acai bowl on Sunday instead of Saturday! 😉

cheesy cashew leek potato soup 2This past weekend, I made up a bowl of vegan “cheezy” potato and leek soup.  It was a success, so you can expect to see more about this one soon.

WIAW 3This is my new favorite way to drink my green smoothies.  I might even love this more than my penguin cup!

maple brussel sprouts bacon 8It turns out that vegetarians like the maple brussel sprouts and bacon combo, too!  I vegified it and it was so good.  Expect this recipe on Monday just in time for Christmas!

FFF kale caesar saladI ate the BEST vegan kale and chickpea caesar salad ever this past weekend.  No seriously, this was life-changing.  It is from Oh She Glows and I will share more about it in a future Friday Foodie Favorites post!

I hope this post was veggie-filled enough for ya!  Have a great Wednesday 🙂

      Haha, on most occasions that is very true! I am lucky that I LOVE most fruits and veggies!
  • Jenny @ apples & kale December 17, 2014, 6:56 am
    That caesar salad looks great! I saw it on Angela's site and thought about cheating on my beloved quinoa caesar recipe... :) Now I just might have to, because your version looks even better!! Jenny @ apples & kale recently posted...Collard Greens JuiceMy Profile

      Thanks Liv! I definitely try to make meals and snacks that are not only healthy, but delicious! I certainly like to eat a lot, too, so they have to be filling!
  • Linda @ Veganosity December 17, 2014, 9:12 am
    I love the idea of using cauliflower in tacos. The texture is meaty and it absorbs whatever spice you cook it in. I'm going to try that soon. Alex would love that penguin glass, she's obsessed with penguins! Linda @ Veganosity recently posted...Vegan Vegetable Reuben SandwichMy Profile
    • ClnEatingVegGrl December 17, 2014, 4:55 pm
      YES to cauliflower in tacos! I am obsessed with using cauliflower for whatever dishes normally contain chicken. It works so well!
  • Rebecca @ Strength and Sunshine December 17, 2014, 9:13 am
    That soup looks divine ;) I am kinda stressin' now about the holidays! I need to still make my gifts, and plan my menu...AH!
    • ClnEatingVegGrl December 17, 2014, 4:56 pm
      I have decided that I'm not going to cook much for Christmas this year. I made about 3/4 of the dishes for Thanskgiving and it just stressed me out, haha! I'll think I'll only make about 2 this time around.
  • Quincy @ Shugurcän December 17, 2014, 9:22 am
    Wow, I can't decide which photo looks best- I want to try everything. What I am sure about is that I can't wait to get that french toast recipe (: Quincy @ Shugurcän recently posted...What I Ate Wednesday- Intuitive EatingMy Profile

      Make tempeh bacon and then it will be just like breakfast... or brinner! ;)

    Oo your pizza looks amazing! I love that you put it on a tortilla. What a great way to use up extras. I seem to always end up with way too many tortillas. Dana | fresh simple five recently posted...What I Ate WednesdayMy Profile
    • ClnEatingVegGrl December 17, 2014, 5:04 pm
      Oh yes! It is the perfect way to use up leftovers! I actually keep my leftovers in the freezer and just pop them out when I need a quick dinner. It works wonderfully!
  • KAT December 17, 2014, 4:06 pm
    Oh man, so much yumminess spread throughout this post!! One of my all time favorite go to meals is a quick tortilla pizza. You can literally top it with whatever you want! KAT recently posted...[WIAW] So what?My Profile
    • ClnEatingVegGrl December 17, 2014, 5:04 pm
      Yes, I so agree! My favorite toppings are peppers, pineapple, and sauerkraut. It sounds strange, but it is so good!
