What I Ate Wednesday: January 14, 2015

in Other

Can you believe we are almost halfway through the month of January?  Yeah, me neither!  I am totally okay with this since January tends to be my least favorite month.  I am already way over this bitter cold, and I am so ready for some Spring and Summer weather.

Despite the bitter cold weather, I have been attempting to eat as Spring and Summer-like as possible.  If I eat freezing acai bowls and drink smoothies then it will make the hot weather come sooner.  That is how it works, right?  Ahh heck, that might just be wishful thinking.  Either way, I ate deeeelicious food from all of the seasons this past Saturday.  Let’s take a look!

What I Ate WednesdayI’m linking up with Jenn from Peas and Crayons today for What I Ate Wednesday.

WIAW 1Since it was a Saturday and all, my body was craving a homemade acai bowl.  I ate a freezing cold bowl while all bundled up with a blanket, my heater, and a pair of slippers.  I’ll do pretty much anything to keep on eating them.

healthy tuna melt 7Lunch was a tuna melt sandwich served with pickles on the side.  I’ll have more on this one next week!

WIAW 2In the afternoon, I snacked on an organic pink lady apple dipped in Trader Joe’s crunchy peanut butter with flax and chia seeds.  If you have not tried this nut butter yet, get on it!

WIAW 1As most afternoons on the weekend go, I drank a green smoothie around 4:00.  In this particular smoothie was unsweetened vanilla almond milk, vanilla Vega One, frozen banana, frozen zucchini, frozen spinach (it helps make the smoothie EXTRA cold), and frozen spinach.  Like acai bowls, I do not care if it is -10 degrees out.  I will still be drinking my smoothies.

WIAW 2Saturday’s dinner consisted of the remainder of the vegan Caesar salad (more on this on Friday) I had in my fridge, chopped carrots, and a Hilary’s Eat Well adzuki bean burger.  If you have not tried their veggie burgers, you need to.  The ingredient lists are awesome and they are so delicious!

WIAW 3If you haven’t already figured it out, I am a bit of a creature of habit.  I would guess I eat popcorn for my nightly snack about five days per week.  I simply cannot get enough.

WIAW 4To balance out the saltiness, I ate some super sweet red grapes on the side.

There is a recent day of my eats!  As you may have noticed, I have been alternating between a full day of eats and “recent eats” for my What I Ate Wednesday posts.  What it mostly comes down to is whether or not I am able to remember to photograph a whole day of eats.  Sometimes it happens.  Sometimes it doesn’t.  All that really matters is that I share plenty of delicious food with you, right?

      Sometimes I wonder how in the world I can eat smoothies during Winter because I HATE being cold. The good taste must outweigh the coldness!
  • meredith @ The Cookie ChRUNicles January 14, 2015, 6:12 am
    I love that peanut butter! I finished a jar recently and have been waiting until I run through a few more Peanut Butter & Co. jars before buying another one. You know my pb pantry is pretty stocked at all times lol. meredith @ The Cookie ChRUNicles recently posted...Recent Eats & Baked Oatmeal Apple SticksMy Profile

      Oh yes, I cannot imagine you EVER running out of PB!!! ;)
  • Rebecca @ Strength and Sunshine January 14, 2015, 6:48 am
    I have that peanut butter right now! It is so good! I love the little crunch of the chia and flax...and peanut! I'm obsessed!
    • ClnEatingVegGrl January 14, 2015, 7:31 am
      Isn't it awesome?? Crunchy peanut butter used to weird me out back when I was a picky eater. Now I LOVE the extra crunch!
  • Kelly @ Hidden Fruits and Veggies January 14, 2015, 6:53 am
    Smoothies pretty much go out the window for me when it's cold out. Our extra freezer is in the unheated garage. It'll take a lot more than a tasty smoothie to get me to touch my feet to that cold, COLD pavement! I'll just drool over your smoothies until we thaw out.

      Now THAT is a good reason to not eat a smoothie during Winter. That just sounds brutal.
  • AJ @ NutriFitMama January 14, 2015, 7:16 am
    I'm going to come over and eat with you- your day looks yummy. Right down to the popcorn and grapes lol! I have been wanting to participate in WIAW but I keep forgetting to photograph a full day of my food- I have pics from several days, but not from one actual day haha.

      Photographing a full day of food is REALLY hard to remember, which is why a lot of WIAWs for me are just a whole bunch of my recent eats. You could always take that approach so you wouldn't have to remember every single thing eaten in one day.
  • Joanna @Makingmine January 14, 2015, 7:37 am
    Thanks for doing your part to help us get rid of winter faster ;) That tuna sandwich looks fab - I only ever crave tuna when I'm pregnant (and can't have it). It's at the top of my list to eat after baby gets here haha Joanna @Makingmine recently posted...becoming a mom of twoMy Profile
    • ClnEatingVegGrl January 14, 2015, 8:50 am
      Hah! That figures! We'll have to get together and make some tuna salad or something ;)
  • Liz @ I Heart Vegetables January 14, 2015, 7:50 am
    I loooove Hilary’s Eat Well burgers! They're so deliciously crispy on the outside! Plus the ingredients are awesome. Looks like a lovely day of eats!
    • ClnEatingVegGrl January 14, 2015, 8:59 am
      Aren't they the BEST? I also love how they are a decent size so that I don't feel like I am eating a skimpy dinner.
  • Linda @ Veganosity January 14, 2015, 8:00 am
    You ate well my friend! I love acai bowls too! One of my favorite things to mix with popcorn is chocolate. I sprinkle Enjoy Life mini chocolate chips in with my popcorn. Yum! Although, grapes are obviously a healthier choice. :) Linda @ Veganosity recently posted...Blue Corn Tacos with Fried PotatoesMy Profile
    • ClnEatingVegGrl January 14, 2015, 8:59 am
      Awesome idea, Linda! I don't know why I never think to do that. I'll have to give it a try since I love the sweet and salty combo so much :)
  • jessie January 14, 2015, 8:02 am
    We made tuna melts for dinner on Monday. Aren't they delicious? Their the best on either sourdough bread or english muffins.
    • ClnEatingVegGrl January 14, 2015, 9:03 am
      Thanks for the heads up, Jessie! I'll have to get some sourdough bread next time I make them.
  • Jess January 14, 2015, 10:09 am
    I'm the same way! I always eat frozen berries with my greek yogurt in the mornings or drink my icy smoothies after workouts, despite the freezing weather. They both just taste too good to get rid of. And it's never possible to get enough popcorn! I could eat it every day myself.
    • ClnEatingVegGrl January 14, 2015, 7:43 pm
      It sounds to me like you have GREAT taste in food! ;)
  • Phoebe January 14, 2015, 11:24 am
    Ooooh that peanut butter has my name written all over it! I will have to go get some! And I also love those Hilary's Eat Well burgers! Reading your post has made me so hungry! :) Happy Wednesday! Phoebe recently posted...What I Ate Wednesday #2My Profile
    • ClnEatingVegGrl January 14, 2015, 7:46 pm
      It is some of the BEST peanut butter! You definitely need to track some down.
  • Rachel @ Athletic avocado January 14, 2015, 1:52 pm
    I love trader joe's flax and chia PB as well as Hilary's eats well veggie burgers too! I guess great minds think alike! :)
    • ClnEatingVegGrl January 14, 2015, 7:46 pm
      They sure do!! You have GOOD taste in food :)
  • Dana | fresh simple five January 14, 2015, 2:01 pm
    I don't care how cold it gets, I can't give up my smoothies! I usually drink mine on the drive to work... with my mittens on! Haha - at least I know I'm not the only one still enjoying these cold beverages. Dana | fresh simple five recently posted...What I Ate WednesdayMy Profile
    • ClnEatingVegGrl January 14, 2015, 7:47 pm
      It's ironic the things we will do! I normally drink mine at work all bundled up in my Snuggie! ;)
  • Abbie @ Needs Salt January 14, 2015, 2:19 pm
    So just everything here looks so delicious. And I'm totally with you -- who cares how cold it is? Smoothies are the way to go. In fact I think I said that to my mom today, "Maybe if I keep drinking summertime smoothies, it will get warmer!" Ha, maybe. But not likely. By the way, I just stumbled upon your blog and I love it! You've got a new fan and follower right here. (; Keep up the awesome work! Abbie @ Needs Salt recently posted...simple vegan ginger spice cake. (gluten free)My Profile

    • ClnEatingVegGrl January 14, 2015, 7:50 pm

  • lindsay January 14, 2015, 5:13 pm
    you now have me craving pickles. Like big time! on top of that french toast you posted yesterday. LOL! don't worry, i won't eat them together
    • ClnEatingVegGrl January 14, 2015, 7:50 pm
      HAHA! People do make peanut butter and pickles sandwiches. I wonder if they have ever tried adding chocolate to the combination? ;)
  • Ashley January 14, 2015, 6:38 pm
    So many good looking eats! I finally saw the acai packets at the store the other day! I need to grab some next time (and put them on my meal plan :) ) And smoothies for life! I don't care how cold it is outside I am still drinking them too! Ashley recently posted...Chocolate Cherry Oat Smoothie + A GiveawayMy Profile

      Yes, please buy them!! They are definitely a bit pricey, but I promise they are worth it :)
  • Alexis @ Hummusapien January 15, 2015, 7:24 pm
    Tuna melts are the bomb. I want that kale caesar recipe!
