What I Ate Wednesday: May 13, 2015

in Other

The 13th of May, eh?  Could it be that we are seriously almost halfway through May?  Let me tell you, this year is faallyyying by.  On the one hand, I am excited because that means June will be here soon.  I have a lot of fun things planned for next month.  On the other hand, it scares me a bit.  At this rate, summer will come and go quicker than we can bat an eye.  Since the months of June through October are generally my favorites (except Christmas, of course), I want things to slow down just a wee bit.

One thing that I do not want to slow down, though, is the rate at which I have been making and eating delicious food.  Let’s check out what I scarfed down this past Saturday.

What I Ate WednesdayWhat I Ate Wednesday: May 13, 2015

wiaw_breakfast_sandwichI had a little bit of a difficult time deciding what I wanted for breakfast on Saturday morning.  I was craving a breakfast sandwich, an apple with almond butter, and peas.  Random, I know.  I had plans to go to a Pilates Fusion class at Sweat Cycle and Soul, so I decided I had better not have such a filling breakfast.  Instead, I rolled with the thing I was craving the most: the breakfast sandwich!  I toasted up the last of my gluten-free bread and topped it with vegan Field Roast Chao cheese and a fried egg.  It was the perfect fuel for my workout.

wiaw_peasEven after a great workout, I still could not shake the pea craving.  So that is exactly what I had when I got home… along with a ton of water.

wiaw_crackersI then snacked on a few cracker creations that I whipped up for a future blog post.  It’s really a fun process.  I create.  I photograph.  I eat.  I think the eating part might be my favorite!

wiaw_tuna_split_pea_soupI decided I better actually eat something substantial for lunch.  I chose one of my current obsessions: canned tuna in split pea soup.  This time, however, I served it with rice cakes instead of over toast since I was out of GF bread.  This was good, but it is definitely much tastier over toast.

wiaw_green_smoothieI needed a little something to tide me over between lunch and dinner.  I decided on my favorite weekend afternoon snack: a green smoothie!  In the mix was unsweetened vanilla almond milk, cold water, chocolate Vega One <–affiliate link, frozen banana, frozen pineapple, frozen zucchini, frozen kale, and fresh spinach.  I promise, it surprisingly did not even taste healthy!

wiaw_crackers_cheese_wineI spent my Saturday night with some of my favorite people: Erin and Jordan.  We started our evening out with some wine, crackers, and cheese.

wiaw_grillingThen it was time for dinner!  I ate a grilled Hillary’s veggie burger, fresh cantaloupe, and roasted brussel sprouts.  Everything was so good.  I may or may not have followed up my first glass of wine with a couple more, too.

WIAW_smoresAfter dinner, we decided that S’mores were a must since it is practically summertime.  Do you like my GF version?

wiaw_cinnamon_applesI arrived back to my apartment around 9:30.  I felt tired, but also hungry.  I sliced up an apple, microwaved it for about 45 seconds, and topped it with ground cinnamon.  It turns out that I was not as hungry as I thought I was.  I ate about half of this and then decided I was full and ready for bed.

This was a totally random, slightly snacky day full of tons of “mini meals” spread throughout.  I loved every second and every bite of it.

What have you eaten lately and loved?

      It seriously is! I cannot wait to enjoy the two together all summer long.

    I love the banana smores :) sometimes when I can't find vegetarian marshmallows, I roast a banana over a fire like a messy weirdo ;-) Kelly @ Hidden Fruits and Veggies recently posted...Loaded Turkey, Avocado, and Mushroom Sandwich + Lightlife GiveawayMy Profile

      I don't think that's weird at all! I think it's awesome!
  • Liz @ I Heart Vegetables May 13, 2015, 8:43 am
    Those Hilary's eat well burgers are the BEST! We love ours topped with a little avocado and salsa :) They're so crispy even just being baked in the oven!
    • ClnEatingVegGrl May 13, 2015, 9:56 am
      They are AWESOME!! I'll have to try them with salsa and avocado next time :)
  • Morgan @ Managing Mommyhood May 13, 2015, 9:05 am

      Oh trust me, I eat my fair share of meals out of Tupperware too! My lunches at work never look pretty ;)
  • Jessie May 13, 2015, 9:15 am
    I don't know what I love more - your snack creation or the s'more creation. I bet even adding bananas to regular s'mores would be off the chain!
    • ClnEatingVegGrl May 13, 2015, 10:02 am
      Yes!! It was my friend Erin's idea to add bananas to S'mores. They all made regular ones with the banana and I just left the graham crackers off. It was a taaaasty combination!
  • Rebecca @ Strength and Sunshine May 13, 2015, 10:18 am
    If summer goes by fast...I am going to cry and scream and kick! Ah! What have I eaten and loved lately? Just about everything.....being reunited with my kitchen and ALL THE FOOD....you could only imagine ;)
    • ClnEatingVegGrl May 13, 2015, 10:35 am
      Oh my gosh, I bet!! It would be one of the best things ever!
  • Ang @ Nutty for Life May 13, 2015, 10:55 am
    Now I'm craving a s'more! I'm going to have to give your GF version a try. It looks sooooo good. What a fab idea. Next time I go camping! (even if only to annoy my friends with my foodie ways lol). Ang @ Nutty for Life recently posted...DIY Banana Avocado Hair MaskMy Profile

      You might be surprised! They might want to get in on the banana s'more action too ;)
  • Kim @ Kim's Cravings May 13, 2015, 11:45 am
    Definitely looks like a delicious day of eats! Loving that S'mores with the banana- that's actually a really good idea and I'm sure it was pretty tasty too!
    • ClnEatingVegGrl May 13, 2015, 1:28 pm
      It was super delicious! You should absolutely give it a try this summer :)
  • Liv @ Healthy Liv May 13, 2015, 12:17 pm
    I do the microwave apple trick, too, diced with a little water and cinnamon added, and then top it with a spoonful of vanilla ice cream. Yum! Liv @ Healthy Liv recently posted...Lightened Up Mac and CheeseMy Profile
    • ClnEatingVegGrl May 13, 2015, 1:29 pm
      Oh my goodness, I bet the addition of vanilla ice cream makes it CRAZY good. I'll have to try that with some coconut milk ice cream!
  • Trisha May 13, 2015, 1:33 pm
    Love the s'more idea. We also buy softer GF cookies to use as s'more lids. :) Trisha recently posted...Asparagus & Morel Mushrooms with Crispy PancettaMy Profile

      Oh yum, I bet cookies are delish in s'mores... maybe even better than graham crackers!
  • Ashley May 13, 2015, 1:43 pm
    Wine, cheese and crackers are always a good idea! Delicious looking food as always! And I hear you - I wish time would slow down too - it's a little scary how fast it's going this year so far!! Ashley recently posted...Veggie-Filled Tortellini SkilletMy Profile

      Super scary!! Time needs to SLOW down so that we can enjoy more wine, cheese, and crackers ;)
  • Heather@hungryforbalance May 13, 2015, 2:03 pm
    I love your GF smore- I am definitely going to have to try that this summer! And I love the fact that you had a pea craving. I feel like the pea is a seriously neglected vegetable! Heather@hungryforbalance recently posted...WIAW 5/13My Profile

      Peas are so neglected!! They are definitely one of my favorite veggies ever.

      Thanks Michelle! I am now officially convinced that the graham crackers are totally optional.

      Good luck to your mom with GF! She can definitely still enjoy so many of the foods she loves now, just with slight adaptations :)
  • Sarah @ Making Thyme for Health May 13, 2015, 3:14 pm
    Using banana in place of crackers is a brilliant idea! Now I'm craving s'mores...mmm. :) Sarah @ Making Thyme for Health recently posted...Avocado Hummus Toast with Dill and Za’atarMy Profile

      I feel like s'mores are one of those foods that ALWAYS sounds good! Good thing I can still enjoy my own version of them :)
  • Ashley @ A Lady Goes West May 13, 2015, 4:04 pm
    Hi Hannah! As a veggie lover, do you know that peas are completely not desirable to me at all? I like all veggies except peas and lima beans ahaha. And yet, you basically had them twice in this day. Love that you had some nibblies throughout the day. I like to snack too, and a microwaved apple? Okay, I've now seen this a lot and never tried it. I need to! Happy WIAW! :) Ashley @ A Lady Goes West recently posted...A bit of chatter and “What I Ate Wednesday”My Profile
    • ClnEatingVegGrl May 13, 2015, 5:56 pm
      No peas?!? Boo :( Haha! I guess we cannot all like the same things now can we? That'd be a boring world.
  • GiGi Eats May 13, 2015, 11:15 pm
    OMG I don't even know the last time I ever had a S'MORE! ha! I don't even think I liked them very much, I think I remember liking all of the ingredients separately, just not together - ha! GiGi Eats recently posted...Carnival In Your Mouth!My Profile
    • ClnEatingVegGrl May 14, 2015, 10:52 am
      HAHA! Hey, I'm a big fan of deconstructed foods, so you could just eat them separately and call it a deconstructed s'more ;)
