What I Ate Wednesday… on Tuesday! + Salmon and Egg Scramble Tacos

in Other

I know, I know.  It’s not Wednesday!  But let’s just pretend it is, okay?

I happen to have a very delicious post coming your way tomorrow for National Blueberry Pancake Day.  And since this special National Day is on a Wednesday, I’m moving my weekly What I Ate Wednesday post to today.  Now if only we could actually make it be Wednesday…

What I Ate WednesdayWhat I Ate Wednesday… on Tuesday!

WIAW 5You had to see this one coming.  Every weekday morning, I blend up a green smoothie to drink.  I like to start my day out with lots of fruits and veggies.  In the mix: unsweetened vanilla almond milk, vanilla Vega One, frozen banana, frozen spinach, and fresh spinach.  It’s a lean green delicious machine!

WIAW 3I have majorly been on the oatmeal, pancakes, acai bowl, and French toast breakfast bandwagons lately.  What can I say?  I love breakfast!  But my cravings for my old Summer staple are starting to come back.  Or maybe I am just craving Summer…  Regardless, I brought a mixed bowl of cereal to work with me.  It contained Kashi Go Lean original, puffed kamut, 365 Peanut Butter Balls, and Love Grown Chocolate Power O’s.  Basically, it tasted like heaven, and the almond milk I added in tasted like chocolately peanut butter goodness after I ate all of the cereal!

FFF buffalo cauliflower chiliLunch was leftover chili from earlier in the week.  We are talking buffalo, cauliflower, and chili.  I’ll share more on this one soon!

WIAW 2I am a snacker, and it is not a workday afternoon without snacks.  My first snack was some smokehouse almonds from Blue Diamond.  I love so many of their flavors, but this is definitely one of my favorites!

WIAW 4I also ate one of my old standbys: carrots and hummus.  This never. ever. gets. old.

salmon egg scramble tacos 2After a trip to the grocery store, I unloaded my groceries, started a load of laundry, and threw together random ingredients to make tacos.  This was one of those occasions when the most oddball of recipes becomes something really good.  I knew I had to share it with you!

Salmon and Egg Scramble Tacos

Makes 4 tacos

Ingredients

1 chipotle flavored salmon burger (I used a frozen and thawed patty from Whole Foods)
water, for cooking
1 small green bell pepper, chopped
1/4 cup diced red onion
1/2 heaping TB taco seasoning
1 large egg + 2 egg whites
dash of green pepper hot sauce
4 corn tortillas
fresh cilantro, optional
salsa verde, optional

Directions

1. Cook salmon burger according to package directions.  Mine cooked for approximately 10 minutes, flipping once halfway through.

2.  While the salmon burger is cooking, heat water over medium-high heat in a nonstick skillet.  Once hot, lower the heat to medium and add peppers and onions to the pan.  Cook for approximately 5 to 7 minutes, or until softened.  Add additional water, as necessary.  Stir in taco seasoning and cook for 1 minute.

3. Beat together egg, egg whites, and hot sauce.  Pour into skillet with peppers and onions.  Scramble for approximately 5 minutes.

4. Once cooked through, cut the salmon burger into 1-inch pieces.  Add salmon to the scrambled eggs and veggies.

5. Heat tortillas in microwave or oven.

6. Compile tacos in the following order: tortillas, salmon/egg/veggie scramble, fresh cilantro, and salsa verde.

salmon egg scramble tacosI was not sure how these would turn out, but I loved the end result.  I’ll definitely be making them again for a quick, easy, and delicious weeknight dinner!

WIAWI ended my night with tons of fresh organic strawberries straight from the container.  Don’t worry.  I washed them first!  I am so excited that they have been tasting delicious lately since you just never know what you are going to get in the Winter months.

And speaking of berries… don’t forget to come back tomorrow to celebrate National Blueberry Pancake Day!  Have a great Wednesday Tuesday!

    I have been on the cold cereal bandwagon for awhile now! I think I crave more "summer" breakfasts in the winter and vice versa, hahahaha!
    • ClnEatingVegGrl January 27, 2015, 10:53 am
      It is weird how our cravings work. I think you can never go wrong with a bowl of cereal, though! :)
  • Joanna @Makingmine January 27, 2015, 5:42 am
    *Santa* brought Jeff the smokehouse flavored almonds for Christmas and he's hooked! Are you sure we can't just declare today Wednesday for the heck of it? Joanna @Makingmine recently posted...morning resolutionsMy Profile

      Oh man, "Santa" sounds like an AWESOME person! ;) And yes... I vote we make it Wednesday! I'm not sure my place of employment would agree, though.
  • Stacie @ SimplySouthernStacie January 27, 2015, 6:20 am
    I have that exact same soup bowl! It's pretty much my favorite kitchen purchase ever. Also, thanks for the heads up about national blueberry pancakes day! I will have to make sure I properly celebrate. Stacie @ SimplySouthernStacie recently posted...Weekend Fun + Marathon PlaylistMy Profile

    I have to try a taco like this! Cilantro makes everything better ;) Emilie recently posted...How Your Relationship Can Make You Spend LessMy Profile

      These are definitely a bit different as far as tacos go, but I think that is a good thing! I am loving the addition of eggs. And yes... cilantro is fantastic with ALL Mexican-flavored dishes!
  • mercury January 27, 2015, 8:33 am
    I love the dish with a spot for dip in the middle! genius!
    • ClnEatingVegGrl January 27, 2015, 11:00 am
      Isn't it so cool? I think I found it in the dollar section at Target. I am sad because the lid is partially broken. One of these days I am going to have to throw it away :(
  • Cassie @ Almost Getting it Together January 27, 2015, 8:53 am
    Tomorrow is national blueberry pancake day??? You just changed my whole morning and perhaps my whole day. Also Blue Diamond has the BEST flavored almonds!! Cassie @ Almost Getting it Together recently posted...Cheddar Butternut Squash Cornbread [Gluten Free]My Profile

      IT SURE IS!! You better make sure you incorporate in some pancakes for breakfast or brinner! :)
  • Linda @ Veganosity January 27, 2015, 10:02 am
    I can't get through my morning without a big green smoothie either. :) I didn't know that tomorrow was National Blueberry Pancake Day! I had some on Sunday-haha! Linda @ Veganosity recently posted...Brussels Sprouts, Kale, and Carrot SlawMy Profile

      It sounds like you celebrated National Blueberry Pancake Day a bit early!! Nothing wrong with that, right? ;)
  • jess meddows January 27, 2015, 10:20 am
    I had a really interesting combo of food today. We had lunch at The Burmese Kitchen, which is very similar to the food in Northern Thailand where we're living right now, but had some different meals I hadn't tried. We had tofu fried balls, which tasted almosty eggy. Some tofu larb, which was so good! And some garlic stir fried morning glory. :D And like you, I had a chili today too! :D jess meddows recently posted...Bangkok Airways & Qantas Business Class Chiang Mai to SydneyMy Profile

      Tofu fried balls? That sounds amazing! Everything is good fried, right? ;)
  • Dana | fresh simple five January 27, 2015, 10:22 am
    I'm all about green smoothies and hummus... not together, of course! Haha! The tacos sound delicious. I love coming up with new taco combos. They're such a versatile food. Dana | fresh simple five recently posted...Cajun Spaghetti Squash MacMy Profile
    • ClnEatingVegGrl January 27, 2015, 11:04 am
      They really are one of the most versatile foods. I think we could all have Taco Tuesday every week and never get bored! And yes... I'm thinking I'll probably keep my hummus out of my green smoothies ;)

    Those Salmon Tacos look amazing! So do those strawberries. Strawberries here have been terrible lately. Those look delicious! Miranda @ Miranda Writes Blog recently posted...Our CreaturesMy Profile

      It's so tricky buying berries in the Winter! Sometimes they are fantastic... and other times they are just awful. I hope you find some good ones soon! :)
  • Ashley January 27, 2015, 6:48 pm
    Yes for delicious strawberries! I bought a container since they looked so good and was not disappointed! And definitely looking forward to that chili! Ashley recently posted...Jalapeno Cheddar Soft Pretzel BitesMy Profile
    • ClnEatingVegGrl January 27, 2015, 8:12 pm
      It can be so hard to decide whether or not the strawberries will taste as good as they sometimes look. Luckily, they have been lately!
  • Farrah January 27, 2015, 8:23 pm
    I wish I had salmon in my fridge right now. I want this in my life!! <3
    • ClnEatingVegGrl January 28, 2015, 7:30 am
      They are pretty darn delicious! I definitely recommend investing in some salmon burgers to keep in your freezer!
