What I Ate Wednesday: March 18, 2015

in Other

Happy Wednesday, all!  I hope you survived St. Patty’s Day.  Mine was less than eventful.  Some working.  Some eating.  Some blogging.  And some TV watching.  That was about the extent of my day.  But I’m not complaining.  The hangover is never worth it, am I right?

By now you know exactly what happens on Clean Eating Veggie Girl nearly every Wednesday.  It’s What I Ate Wednesday time!  Let’s take a look at my eats from this past Sunday.

What I Ate WednesdayWhat I Ate Wednesday: March 18, 2015

WIAW 31515 2This was quite the combination!  I was craving two completely random things for breakfast, so I went with both.  I made a breakfast sandwich with toasted gluten-free bread, vegan Field Roast Chao cheese, strawberry jam, and a sunny-side up egg.  I loved the sweet and savory combo.  On the side I ate a dish of cooked peas.  What can I say, I am a major pea lover!

WIAW 31515 3Lunch was a delicious vegan chickpea and veggie fried rice.  I’ll have more on this tasty dish in a future post!

WIAW appleSnack #1 was a tasty sweet/sour Pink Lady apple.  It is my favorite variety right now.

WIAW green smoothieThe usual late afternoon weekend snack suspect: a green smoothie!  In the mix was unsweetened vanilla cashew milk, chocolate Vega One protein powder, flax-seed oil, frozen banana, frozen zucchini, and fresh spinach.

WIAW quesadillaDinner was quick, easy, and delicious!  I made a veggie quesadilla and served it alongside black bean salsa and fresh tomato slices sprinkled with sea salt.  The quesadilla contained red pepper hummus and zucchini, red peppers, green peppers, onions, and corn sautéed with a little bit of taco seasoning.  This was so good!

WIAW 31515My evening snack was a single-serve cacao nib banana bread muffin.  I’ll be sharing more on this next week!

There you have it!  A day of plant-based eats.  Hopefully you found some new tasty meal and snack ideas.  I hope y’all have a great Wednesday!

    Pink lady or granny smith apples are definitely my faves - but lately I've been loving granny smith apples, microwaved for 20-30 seconds so they're warm and slightly soft. The weather is getting cooler here so it's the perfect warm up! Kristy @ Southern In Law recently posted...Recipe: Flourless Almond Butter MuffinsMy Profile

      Oh it sounds like you would love one of my favorite snacks!! I dice up an apple and microwave it for about 60 seconds. Then I top it with cinnamon, nut butter of choice, and a few dark chocolate chips. It is heavenly!

    Your breakfast looks like it would be right up Eleanor's alley - if she ever gets the chance to choose what it eat, it's "peas and cheese!" Joanna @Makingmine recently posted...preparing for childbirthMy Profile

      It can be so easy to forget about how delicious (and easy to make) rice is! I'm trying to incorporate it into my diet more. You can expect that recipe coming your way over the next couple of weeks :)

    • ClnEatingVegGrl March 18, 2015, 10:57 am
      I'm pretty open to ALL apples, too!! Often times I pick whatever is on sale. I like to say that I do not discriminate ;)

      Sometimes we just crave foods that aren't "breakfast foods," right? I think it's important to listen to my body, so I usually roll with it!
  • Vicky March 18, 2015, 11:47 am
    That quesadilla looks awesome!! I never thought about having a green smoothie as an afternoon snack...I have them for breakfast when I have time to whip one up, but what a great idea for an afternoon boost of energy! I'm definitely trying that going forward :-). My favorite apple variety is the Gala apple! Vicky recently posted...Mobile Photography 101 {Part 2}: AccessoriesMy Profile

    i've been craving green apples lately, but in salads. It's the tartiness. haha. And now i want some peas thanks to this post. ;-)
    • ClnEatingVegGrl March 18, 2015, 2:42 pm
      For some crazy reason I have never tried green apples in a salad. Holy cow, I feel a craving coming on! ;)
  • Sue Lau March 18, 2015, 2:36 pm
    I like apple slices with peanut butter.

      You and me both! It is SUCH a good combo. I also love apple slices with almond butter and cashew butter!
  • Dana | fresh simple five March 18, 2015, 2:48 pm
    I'm loving Pink Lady apples right now too! I picked up a bag of them at Trader Joe's this weekend and they are the perfect afternoon pick-me-up. Your quesadilla looks amazing! I've never made a veggie quesadilla -- I'll have to give that a try! Dana | fresh simple five recently posted...Vegetarian Black Bean BurgersMy Profile
    • ClnEatingVegGrl March 18, 2015, 3:18 pm
      Yes for another Pink Lady lover! You are a good apple picker ;) And yes, you NEED to try making veggie quesadillas. They are SO easy and delicious. You'll wonder why you never do it before. I also highly recommend adding a spicy hummus. It is so good!
  • Jenni March 18, 2015, 5:13 pm
    As a fellow pea lover, I say peas are delicious any time of day! And Pink Lady all. the. way. Looks like a great day of eats! Can't wait to hear about that muffin! Jenni recently posted...Eat In, Save Dough: Top 10 Tips & Tricks for Smart Grocery ShoppingMy Profile

  • Mary Legare Whaley March 21, 2015, 8:29 pm
    I love Pink Lady apples! They pretty much tie with Honeycrisp in my book. I love the sweet/tart/crunch of both varieties (as opposed to mealy). Fiji and Gala are great, but they're hit or miss as far as texture and sweetness. I've been eating breakfast for dinner. Eggs, pancakes, vegan sausage...I like eating light at night and eating my heavier meal for lunch these days. I want to try that Field Roast Chao cheese you mentioned---it sounds like a great addition to one of my dinner omelets. :) Mary Legare Whaley recently posted...SICK!My Profile
    • ClnEatingVegGrl March 22, 2015, 10:05 am
      The Field Roast cheese is SO good!! I hope you give it a try. I also love hearing about other brinner lovers out there. It is one of my favorite things and it's SO easy to throw together! P.S. You have great taste in apples! ;)
