What I Ate Wednesday: June 10, 2015

in Other

Do you ever feel like the week drags by when you have something to look forward to on the weekend?  Don’t get me wrong, I am always looking forward to Friday evening.  But I especially love when I am going somewhere or have something special planned.  The downside of fun weekend plans is that the excitement of it all always seems to make the weekend take forever to get here.  I guess good things come to those who wait?  Or at least that is what I am going to keep on telling myself.

So, Wednesday, I will do my best to like you and accept the fact that you are not Friday.  And one of the things that I like about you the most is that you are the “unofficial” day for talking about a full day of eats.  Check out my day of eats below, and then head on over to Peas and Crayons for other bloggers’ What I Ate Wednesday posts!

What I Ate WednesdayWhat I Ate Wednesday: June 10, 2015

savory_breakfast_sandwichThis past Saturday began way earlier than normal.  The higher education institution that I work for had their annual summer Commencement ceremony, and I was a volunteer.  The ceremony location was 25 minutes away from where I live and I had to arrive by 6:45 a.m., so I opted for breakfast on the go.  I toasted up two slices of gluten-free toast.  I topped one with guacamole and strawberry jam <– I love that sweet and savory combo.  I topped the other slice with guacamole, half of a slice of Field Roast vegan cheese, and a fried egg.  This was seriously delicious and surprisingly easy to eat in the car.

appleI also packed an apple to snack on mid-morning since I knew I would not arrive home until around noon.

burger_mashed_sweet_potatoesLunch was leftovers from a few days before: a grass-fed beef burger topped with half of a slice of Field Roast vegan cheese, onions, tomatoes, and mustard on a lettuce “bun.”  I served it alongside frozen grapes and my mashed sweet potatoes and apples.

smoothie_vital_proteins_collagenAround 3:00 in the afternoon, my hunger hit again.  I whipped up a green smoothie with unsweetened almond milk, water, chocolate Vega One, frozen banana, frozen blueberries, frozen zucchini, and frozen spinach.  I also added in some collagen peptides for the first time, and was super pleased that I did not even taste them.  I have been trying anything and everything for my chronic joint and muscle pain, and I’m hoping this product helps!

veggie_grain_free_pizzaDinner was super easy and delish!  I made my grain-free pizza crust for one and topped it with pizza sauce, kale, peppers, onions, mushrooms, pineapple, sauerkraut, and vegan cheese <– can you tell I’m trying to use it up before I try soy-free?  I sometimes forget how delicious a simple veggie-packed pizza can be.  I need to make this more often.

homemade_popcornI ended my night with some homemade stove top popcorn.  I’m going to be sharing my method for making it next week, hence the reason why this picture looks 10 times better than any other popcorn picture I have ever posted!

skinnygirl_margaritaAnd what goes better with popcorn than a margarita?  I blended up some Skinnygirl margarita and ice in my Vitamix for a perfectly slushy ‘rita.  It was the best night-cap!

What is your favorite breakfast to eat on the go?

    I learned my lesson to to fry my eggs completely before getting in the car. On a few occassions I've had egg yolk fingers and hands! Your lunch looks so summer-y and delicious! Kate recently posted...Tomato Basil Cabbage & TempehMy Profile
    • ClnEatingVegGrl June 10, 2015, 7:25 am
      Yes, I can only imagine what a mess that would be. I made sure to break the yolks while I was frying mine up for that exact reason!
  • Kelly @ Hidden Fruits and Veggies June 10, 2015, 6:50 am
    I'm pretty impressed with what you consider easy to eat in the car. I can barely handle a granola bar! And I would never volunteer for something that starts before 7 am ;-) Kelly @ Hidden Fruits and Veggies recently posted...Creamy Asiago and Spinach DipMy Profile

      Haha! I wouldn't necessarily say it is "volunteering." It's more like "highly recommended".. if you get what I'm saying! And somehow I have mastered eating breakfast in the car. Cereal can be pretty challenging, but I've gotten pretty good at that ;)
  • Heather @Fit n Cookies June 10, 2015, 7:02 am
    That popcorn sounds so good :) I honestly don't ever eat my breakfasts on the go. I'd say if I had to, it would just be a bagel. Most of my breakfasts are too messy to take and eat in the car, haha. Heather @Fit n Cookies recently posted...Baby Brown 22 Weeks: Being told I can’t do thingsMy Profile
    • ClnEatingVegGrl June 10, 2015, 7:28 am
      I hear you! The best breakfasts tend to be messy and not easily eaten anywhere other than at the table. I made sure to break the yolk in my egg on this particular morning or it would have been EXTRA messy!
  • Joanna @Makingmine June 10, 2015, 7:03 am
    Oh I love me some Skinnygirl! I can say that it's literally been YEARS since I've had one though - geesh! And your runny eggs always make me hungry - yours are PERFECT! I've been making them every single morning lately. Mine are getting better, but they definitely aren't at Hannah level ;) You must make them like my mom - with a lid? Joanna @Makingmine recently posted...milk and cookies father’s day craftMy Profile
    • ClnEatingVegGrl June 10, 2015, 7:29 am
      Yes... the lid is a MUST! I'm planning on writing up a "how to" post here soon since people seem to be quite interested in my egg cooking style ;) And I had not had a Skinnygirl margarita in YEARS either until I had that one. When you are no longer nursing we will have to have a Skinnygirl night!
  • Alissa Apel June 10, 2015, 8:40 am
    That all looks good - per usual when I come here. ;) I'm hating how the price of eggs is going up (first picture) I was getting eggs from my co-worker that has free range chickens. Now other people are buying them from him. I'm sitting here thinking, "But I was first!" LOL Alissa Apel recently posted...WW: Theater {Linky}My Profile
    • ClnEatingVegGrl June 10, 2015, 9:19 am
      I hear you! It's make me sad :( I need to find a connection with a farmer because I would LOVE to get local eggs!
  • Megan @ Skinny Fitalicious June 10, 2015, 12:01 pm
    I don't think I could runny eggs, guac and jelly in the car. It would be all over me! Megan @ Skinny Fitalicious recently posted...WIAW….Visiting TucsonMy Profile
    • ClnEatingVegGrl June 10, 2015, 12:56 pm
      Oh trust me, it wasn't runny! I broke the yolk and cooked it just long enough so that it wouldn't be. Because yes... that would have been a nightmare. It was kind of messy just as it was anyways ;)
  • Erin @ Her Heartland Soul June 10, 2015, 12:20 pm
    That margarita looks DELICIOUS! And hello yummy breakfast toast! You always make the best breakfasts!
    • ClnEatingVegGrl June 10, 2015, 12:57 pm
      I am a bit-time promoter of good breakfasts. They are a MUST in my book!
  • Audrey June 10, 2015, 12:20 pm
    I love checking in on Wednesdays to see what you ate! The combinations you make are so fun!
    • ClnEatingVegGrl June 10, 2015, 2:13 pm
      Aw, thanks so much Audrey! I'm glad you enjoy the posts :)
  • Megan June 10, 2015, 12:32 pm
    Your egg and avocado with jam combo looks delish! Thanks for the idea. Hope your joint pain goes away soon...can't be fun. Love to see how a fellow egg lover cooks theirs. Never a wrong way but learning something new is always good! Keep up the terrific work girl
    • ClnEatingVegGrl June 10, 2015, 12:58 pm
      I think that is one of the things that I love the most about eggs... they are so versatile and can be eaten in so many different ways! Thanks so much for the good thoughts and positive vibes :)
  • Liz @ I Heart Vegetables June 10, 2015, 1:00 pm
    I don't know which I love more, popcorn or skinny margaritas ;) haha Everything looks lovely!
    • ClnEatingVegGrl June 10, 2015, 2:22 pm
      That's why you have to have both! ;)
  • Leah June 10, 2015, 1:30 pm
    Looks great! But how in the world did you eat that in the car?! Leah recently posted...Spring Root Vegetable SaladMy Profile
    • ClnEatingVegGrl June 10, 2015, 2:23 pm
      Haha, crazy right? I made sure the egg yolk was cooked through so that it wasn't messy and I ate it open-faced, which also made it easier to eat. It still probably was not the smartest idea I have ever had ;)
  • Beverley @ sweaty&fit June 10, 2015, 2:05 pm
    wow that pizza looks awesome! stacked with tons of good stuff. i wish i could do that, but i always feel like something is missing if i dont grate half a pound of cheese on there too... Beverley @ sweaty&fit recently posted...Superfood Breakfast CookieMy Profile
    • ClnEatingVegGrl June 10, 2015, 2:24 pm
      Cheese really is an addiction... but the longer you go without it, the more you realize you don't really NEED it in your life. I promise :)
  • meredith @ The Cookie ChRUNicles June 10, 2015, 4:55 pm
    My two favorite breakfasts - oatmeal or an English muffin with peanut butter. I think I could live on both lol meredith @ The Cookie ChRUNicles recently posted...WIAW- Sunday’s EatsMy Profile
    • ClnEatingVegGrl June 10, 2015, 5:05 pm
      Both are SO delicious! Now that I have been trying out mostly grain-free, I have not had either in awhile. I miss them :(
  • Shannon Peterson June 10, 2015, 10:44 pm
    Oh man, this looks like a delicious food round up! I'm definitely going to check out your grain free pizza crust! Shannon Peterson recently posted...What I Wore // Mama StyleMy Profile
    • ClnEatingVegGrl June 11, 2015, 8:41 am
      Please do! I am so hooked on it right now. I hope you try and enjoy it as much as I do!
  • Jessie June 11, 2015, 1:26 am
    I feel like I'm looking at the rainbow - so many colors eaten in one day. All of which looks delicious! Favorite on the go meal would be an egg sandwich of some sort or even oats in a pb jar.
    • ClnEatingVegGrl June 11, 2015, 8:42 am
      I sure do love colorful food! And good one, Jessie! Oats in a PB or AB jar are amaaazing.
  • Kristy @ Southern In Law June 11, 2015, 4:06 am
    All of your eats look delicious as always! My favourite on-the-go breakfast has to be breakfast bakes! All I have to do is throw one in a container, add some nut butter and i'm good to go! Kristy @ Southern In Law recently posted...Be YOUnique: 20 Random Facts About MeMy Profile
    • ClnEatingVegGrl June 11, 2015, 8:43 am
      Breakfast bakes are SO good! I even have a few floating around here on the blog. I used to make up a big pan on Sundays and eat them throughout the week. They make meal prepping fun!
  • Emily June 11, 2015, 8:37 am
    I'm sorry that you struggle with joint pain Hannah. Praying that you find an answer. Favorite breakfast on the go would have to be a bowl of yogurt with toppings. It's easy, fast, and filling. Emily recently posted...WIAW: Mexican and CookiesMy Profile
    • ClnEatingVegGrl June 11, 2015, 8:45 am
      Thank you so much for your kind thoughts and words, Emily. And good choice on the breakfast on the go! I love anything that can be topped off with a million different toppings- fruit and nut butter are two of my favorites.
  • Monica June 13, 2015, 6:37 pm
    Hannah, I've been meaning to ask you about the frozen zucchini in your smoothies. Is this raw or steamed before freezing. Want to give it a go as yours always look so good.
    • ClnEatingVegGrl June 14, 2015, 8:54 am
      It is raw! I just slice it up and throw it in the freezer. It works perfectly!
