What I Ate Wednesday: April 1, 2015

in Other

It’s April!  Seriously?  April?  How in the heck did that happen?  No complaints here.  I’m excited that we are one month closer to summer!

I don’t have any fun April Fools tricks to play on you today.  Instead, I have a full day of delicious eats to share.  There’s no joking about that!  These are some seriously good eats.  Be sure to check out the other What I Ate Wednesday posts in the link-up, too!

What I Ate WednesdayWhat I Ate Wednesday: April 1, 2015

WIAW acai bowlBreakfast was a homemade acai bowl that I topped with frozen berries and gluten-free quinoa and chia cereal.  It hit the spot, per usual.

WIAW cashewsA couple of hours later I was starving for lunch.  Like seriously so hungry that I was starting to feel sick.  I snacked on a couple of handfuls of cashews to tide me over until I could get lunch made.

WIAW Tuna Egg Scramble Sandwich 8And there she is!  Lunch was a super delicious breakfast-esque sandwich that I will be sharing here in the next couple of weeks.  I’ll give you a hint.  It involved tuna and eggs.  I, of course, ate a dill pickle on the side.

WIAWI sliced up an apple to eat around 2:30.  Is it just me or are apple slices so much more enjoyable than eating the apple whole?  It feels fancier or something…

WIAW green smoothieNow that warmer weather is making an appearance, I have been craving my green smoothies more than normal.  This late afternoon snack contained unsweetened cashew milk, chocolate Vega One protein powder, frozen banana, frozen grapes, frozen zucchini, and fresh spinach.  I’ve never tasted anything green that was so delicious.

Corn Veggie Quinoa BowlThis dinner.  Oh my gosh was it good!  I’ll be sharing more about it in a future Friday Foodie Favorites post, but let me just say that it is a recipe you just have to try.  I’m sure the humongous dollop of guacamole on top didn’t hurt!

WIAW Skinny Pop PopcornI finished off my night with so many handfuls of this popcorn.  I did not eat the whole bag, but I sure wanted to!

      Oooo, that sounds like an awesome idea!! Do you just mix all three of those together? It sounds like my kind of combination :)
      • Miranda @ Miranda Writes Blog April 1, 2015, 10:48 am
        Yep. I just mix it up and put it on some crackers or chips... Miranda @ Miranda Writes Blog recently posted...So Tell Me... No. 3My Profile

  • Rebecca @ Strength and Sunshine April 1, 2015, 9:46 am
    O cashews, they always come to the rescue! I just fell in love with these Lentil Cumin Crisps from Bandar Monday Foods!
    • ClnEatingVegGrl April 1, 2015, 10:51 am
      I have never heard of those, but they sound like something that I NEED to have. I'm going to go Google them right now! ;)
  • Liz @ I Heart Vegetables April 1, 2015, 10:11 am
    I looooove Skinny Pop! My parents always have it at their house and I'm visiting this weekend so I'll definitely be eating some ;) haha
    • ClnEatingVegGrl April 1, 2015, 10:52 am
      Parents are the best, aren't they? I love when my parents feed me good food whenever I'm home :)
  • Melissa April 1, 2015, 10:17 am
    Oh my goodness - tuna breakfast sandwich for lunch? That sounds so so so good! What did I eat lately that I liked a lot? Some lemon cake and also some eggs and spinach for breakfast. Yay for WIAW – i love sharing my eats and seeing what everyone else is having!
    • ClnEatingVegGrl April 1, 2015, 10:54 am
      WIAW is so fun! It is one of my favorite ways to get inspiration from others for meal and snack ideas! You seriously cannot go wrong with eggs and veggies for breakfast. Throw in a side of toast and I would be oh so happy!
  • Marissa April 1, 2015, 10:19 am
    Everything looks great! Love your breakfast...and that skinny pop! It's so good:) I had that birthday frap and Starbucks...it was really good! No regrets! Marissa recently posted...WIAW #7: Being PaleoMy Profile
    • ClnEatingVegGrl April 1, 2015, 11:04 am
      I have heard a lot of great things about the birthday frap from Starbucks. I pretty much love anything birthday cake-themed, so I imagine I would definitely enjoy it!
  • Erin @ Her Heartland Soul April 1, 2015, 10:40 am
    I want to eat your guacamole topped dinner! It looks YUMMY! :D
    • ClnEatingVegGrl April 1, 2015, 11:05 am
      It was SO good! I think I know your tastes pretty well by now, and I have a feeling you would love it!

        • ClnEatingVegGrl April 1, 2015, 2:14 pm
          They have a BBQ version that is amazing! I also want to try the salt and vinegar one!
  • Gretchen | Gretchruns April 1, 2015, 12:08 pm
    I absolutely LOVE pickles! I love it when I get them with a sandwich. Makes me way too excited! I made a spring pasta dish yesterday for dinner which was incredible! Can't wait to share the recipe on my blog on Saturday :) Gretchen | Gretchruns recently posted...Monthly Goals : AprilMy Profile
    • ClnEatingVegGrl April 1, 2015, 1:06 pm
      I so agree! A sandwich just isn't a sandwich without a pickle! Your spring pasta dish sounds like it's amazing. I have been crushing on veggie-filled pasta salads lately :)
  • Simi @ The Micro Harvest April 1, 2015, 1:15 pm
    girl, these eats look AMAZING! I want that breakfast :)
    • ClnEatingVegGrl April 1, 2015, 2:13 pm
      It was an awesome day of eats! I'm so obsessed with acai bowls right now :)

      Thanks Brooke! I hope to have it up in the next couple of weeks... the blog is a busy place right now! ;)
  • Ashley @ A Lady Goes West April 1, 2015, 3:29 pm
    Yummy! Good-looking eats, Hannah! I LOVE to eat hearty green smoothies, so hearty that they require a spoon, of course. I also love pizza and my husband and I made a delicious one on Sunday night that was my best meal of the week. YES to slicing up apples! I actually one an apple-slicer. :) Ashley @ A Lady Goes West recently posted...Smart training nutrition tips and my mealsMy Profile
    • ClnEatingVegGrl April 1, 2015, 3:55 pm
      Pizza is the BEST, isn't it? You really cannot go wrong with it! I'm excited to make grilled pizza this spring/summer :)
  • Ashley April 1, 2015, 3:57 pm
    I can't believe it's April either!! It's insane how quickly time is flying! I love that green smoothie - I'm right there with you - as soon as the weather started getting just a touch warmer I've been craving them like mad! Ashley recently posted...Roasted Berry and Ricotta CrostiniMy Profile
    • ClnEatingVegGrl April 1, 2015, 4:53 pm
      I could probably drink a smoothie for every single meal and be happy right now. The addiction is real ;)
  • Carmen Perez (listen2mama) April 1, 2015, 4:50 pm
    Wow, ths all looks very healthy and yummy. Good for you!
    • ClnEatingVegGrl April 1, 2015, 4:56 pm
      Thanks Carmen! I like to think that it is proof the healthy food IS delicious! Hopefully it inspires others :)
  • Trevor E April 1, 2015, 6:00 pm
    I'm totally back on the green smoothies full-time too! I was getting worried there for a bit :) Trevor E recently posted...To Compromise or Not to Compromise: Water Molecules and AsphaltMy Profile
    • ClnEatingVegGrl April 1, 2015, 6:37 pm
      It doesn't get much better than a cold green smoothie! I don't know how they never get old, but they don't. Probably because they taste like milkshakes ;)
  • Sam @ Grapefruit & Granola April 1, 2015, 6:46 pm
    Your dinner looks great! Then again, I think I would love anything topped with guac. Looking forward to the recipe. Sam @ Grapefruit & Granola recently posted...WIAW 4.1.15My Profile
    • ClnEatingVegGrl April 1, 2015, 8:51 pm
      You can't go wrong with guac, right? It makes everything taste fantastic!
  • Kaylin @ Enticing Healthy Eating April 1, 2015, 9:59 pm
    There are always bloggers that I relate to on one particular aspect it seems...or a few! And with you, I've noticed we both share a huge love for popcorn as a snack. Popcorn is the best. Amen.
    • ClnEatingVegGrl April 2, 2015, 10:00 am
      Haha YES!! I am not ashamed to be known as the popcorn loving girl ;)

      Oh geez, that sounds delicious! No wonder you cannot stop eating it! ;)
  • Alexis @ Hummusapien April 2, 2015, 9:49 am
    That tuna and egg sammie is calling my name!!!
    • ClnEatingVegGrl April 2, 2015, 10:34 am
      It is quite tasty, if I do say so myself... but I might be biased ;)
  • Steph April 5, 2015, 5:26 am
    Totally agree with you on the apple thing- they taste better when you chop them up! I don't remember the last time I actually bit into a whole apple, LOL Steph recently posted...Happy Easter Morning!My Profile
    • ClnEatingVegGrl April 5, 2015, 3:47 pm
      I eat them whole when I am on the go, but I always cut them when I am at home. They are just so much better that way :)
