What I Ate Wednesday: April 15, 2015

in Other

And just like that, Wednesday is here and we are halfway through the month of April.  I am itching for some May weather, and I have so many things to look forward to in the month of June.  Basically, I would not be too upset if the rest of April sped on by.

But until then, let’s talk about food!  I’m linking up for What I Ate Wednesday today to share a day of my eats.  Here is everything that I ate this past Saturday.

What I Ate WednesdayWhat I Ate Wednesday: April 15, 2015

WIAW supplementsMy day started out with my usual morning routine.  I took my acid reflux medication, a calcium supplement, olive leaf extract, and primrose oil with tons of water.  I then treated myself to something sweet to get the icky taste out of my mouth: a dried prune!  Yes, I think prunes are a treat!

WIAW acai bowlAbout an hour later, I sat down to a homemade acai bowl topped with frozen berries and gluten-free quinoa and chia cereal.  It was delicious, as always.

3c1k Pea and Pesto Zoodles 2Lunch was the results of the latest Three Cooks One Kitchen cooking adventure.  I’ll be sharing the recipe tomorrow, but I’ll give you some hints.  It involves two kinds of peas, pesto, and zucchini noodles.

wiaw green smoothieAround 3:30 in the afternoon, I drank a green smoothie.  In the mix was unsweetened vanilla almond milk, BodyBio oil, vanilla Vega One, frozen banana, frozen zucchini, and tons of fresh spinach.  I am finally able to drink these without having to cover up in a blanket!

wiaw blue diamond almondsA couple of hours later, I snacked on a handful of these honey roasted cinnamon almonds from Blue Diamond.  Holy cow, these are good.  They are a must buy!  But be sure to only grab a handful, or you might eat the whole container in one sitting 😉

wiaw supplementsI pre-gamed for dinner with a handful of pills.  I have been taking quite a few vitamins and supplements lately, and splitting them up between the morning and the evening makes taking them slightly less daunting and annoying.  Here we have glutathione, a probiotic, Vitamin D, primrose oil, a small dose of thyroid medication, and more olive leaf extract.

wiaw quinoa veggie fried riceDinner was a super delicious quinoa “fried” rice chock full of delicious veggies.  I’ll share more on this in a future Friday Foodie Favorites post.

wiaw cacao banana bread muffinI finished off the evening with my Single-Serve Cacao Nib Banana Bread Muffin.  Boy did it satisfy every single one of my sweet cravings!

I was provided with free almonds from Blue Diamond.  This post also contains an affiliate link for Vega One (with free shipping!).  I appreciate your continued support of CEVG!

    I can't believe April is already halfway through! We're taking an actual vacation (!!) at the end of this month so I can't wait for that to arrive!! So excited - first time in years!! :) Love the sound of that fried rice! And that single serve muffin! Ashley recently posted...No Bake Peanut Butter and Chocolate TartsMy Profile

      Both were super delicious! You should definitely give them a try :) That is SO great that you are taking a vacation soon! I bet you are super excited. I know I sure would be!

    Not to be extra nosy, but does your thyroid medication not need to be taken on an empty stomach? I have to take mine first thing in the morning and then wait TWO HOURS to eat. I normally only make it an hour, but I say that rounds up. Waayyy too hungry in the mornings to wait 2 hours for anything.

      That's a great question! I actually had to go look at my bottle when I first read this to be sure I wasn't taking it wrong. It does not specify anything about it needing to be taken at a certain time or a with/without food. It just says... take one daily!
  • tiff @ love, sweat, & beers April 15, 2015, 7:33 am
    Lunch and the single-serve muffin look so yummy! I may have to go for a single-serve microwave treat today. Thanks for the idea! tiff @ love, sweat, & beers recently posted...YOPO WIAWMy Profile
    • ClnEatingVegGrl April 15, 2015, 9:54 am
      You definitely should! They are easily becoming one of my new favorite things to eat late at night ;)
  • Alyssa @ Renaissancerunnergirl April 15, 2015, 7:44 am
    I've got to try one of these single serve muffins sometime...I always end up eating 3-4 of the dozen when I whip up a whole batch! Alyssa @ Renaissancerunnergirl recently posted...WIAW #6: Yogurt and Peanut Butter and Ice Cream, Oh My!My Profile
    • ClnEatingVegGrl April 15, 2015, 9:55 am
      That is exactly why I love the single-serves!! Otherwise I would be in the same ballpark as you ;) You could also try freezing some when you make a batch. I bet that would help!
  • Linda @ The Fitty April 15, 2015, 7:53 am
    Oh wow, that pesto looks delightful! I could never limit myself to that portion. I'd gobble up the world! Linda @ The Fitty recently posted...The Chiptole Hiring Chronicles {#LIPlinkup #21}My Profile

      Pesto is SO good!! We absolutely loved it with the zucchini noodles. You can check out the recipe tomorrow :)

      Thanks Trish!! It was a great day of eats :)

    Do you use a pill box? I take 5 pills a day (but was taking 7 for awhile) and a pill box was life changing. I could count them out on Sunday and not have to think about it for a week (or try to figure out whether I had taken my pills or not).
    • ClnEatingVegGrl April 15, 2015, 10:01 am
      Haha... I TRIED doing that.. but most of these are monstrous pills and they don't fit :( Do they make jumbo pill boxes? ;) I actually have a list on my fridge of everything I need to take (and when) in order to keep it all straight. I feel like I'm 80!
  • Rebecca @ Strength and Sunshine April 15, 2015, 9:44 am
    (June is the best month!)
    • ClnEatingVegGrl April 15, 2015, 10:02 am
      I honestly think it is SUCH a great month! There are always so many fun things going on!
  • Erin @ Her Heartland Soul April 15, 2015, 9:51 am
    I brought our 3C1K meal for lunch today! I can't wait until noon!
    • ClnEatingVegGrl April 15, 2015, 10:02 am
      Oh yum!! I need to get a spiralizer so that I can make it again :)
  • Mary April 15, 2015, 11:03 am
    This month is flying by and I can't wait for some fun in the sun, soon soon soon. I'm going to have to try that single serving muffin. It was interesting to see that you split up your supplements, I might start doing that.
    • ClnEatingVegGrl April 15, 2015, 12:28 pm
      I HAVE to do that in order to mentally get it done ;) It just seems so daunting staring at a HUGE handful of supplements. Splitting them up works really well for me. I hope it does for you too!
  • Jessie April 15, 2015, 11:46 am
    Theres no doubt that you got your vegetable intake for the day. So much green! :) Jessie recently posted...What I Ate Wednesday and A Sick BabyMy Profile
    • ClnEatingVegGrl April 15, 2015, 12:29 pm
      I'm so glad that I FINALLY love greens. I most certainly wasn't always that way ;)
  • Emma @ Em-powered Wellness April 15, 2015, 12:21 pm
    I have been extra-loving green smoothies lately now that the weather is warmer! I must find some of those almonds now.... Emma @ Em-powered Wellness recently posted...WIAW: Day in the life of a health and wellness professionalMy Profile

      Major yes to green smoothies. My day does not feel quite complete without them! I hope you find the almonds and give them a try. They are SO darn delicious.

      Thanks Salima! I try to mix things up a bit in order to keep it interesting. I get bored easily ;)
  • Alexis @ Hummusapien April 15, 2015, 6:58 pm
    I recently started taking a women's probiotic and a maca pill to regulate my hormones, so I feel ya on that morning routine!
    • ClnEatingVegGrl April 15, 2015, 8:21 pm
      It can be SO annoying, but if it helps then it will be worth it!
  • Marissa April 15, 2015, 10:39 pm
    Great eats! I too have to take a medication like that...for acid reflux. It's a trial run so should be interesting! Marissa recently posted...WIAW #9: Our Visit to LafayetteMy Profile
    • ClnEatingVegGrl April 16, 2015, 8:46 am
      I HATE having to take it, but I hate acid reflux even more. I hope yours works for you! :)
  • Kristy @ Southern In Law April 15, 2015, 11:54 pm
    Blue diamond almonds are THE best. For a longgg time we couldn't get any of them in Australia so I'd have Jesse bring them with him whenever he'd come to Aus. Now we have a few flavours (honey roasted, salted and jalapeno) but I am hoping they introduce all of the different flavours as they're way too good to miss out on!

    • ClnEatingVegGrl April 16, 2015, 11:56 am
      They are SO good!! I hope more of the flavores head your way. They have some seriously killer combinations :)
  • Liz @ I Heart Vegetables April 16, 2015, 6:28 am
    Ohhh I love quinoa fried "rice" :) It's such a great way to use up extra veggies! And I've got some zucchinis just waiting to be turned into zucchini noodles! Liz @ I Heart Vegetables recently posted...Tone It Up MealsMy Profile
    • ClnEatingVegGrl April 16, 2015, 11:57 am
      YES to both are those! They are both great ways to clean out the fridge and get in lots of veggies all at once :)
  • Trevor E April 16, 2015, 3:58 pm
    Prunes are totally a treat! Yay prunes!! Trevor E recently posted...A Letter to a Broken Mind and BodyMy Profile
    • ClnEatingVegGrl April 16, 2015, 4:53 pm
      YES! Finally someone who thinks I'm not totally crazy ;)
