What I Ate Wednesday: June 24, 2015

in Other

It’s another What I Ate Wednesday day!  I am partway through my Colorado vacation, so we are keeping things short and sweet today.  Check out what I ate last Tuesday via my iPhone (because I was too lazy for anything else).

What I Ate WednesdayWhat I Ate Wednesday: June 24, 2015

vega_green_smoothieThis particular Tuesday started off like nearly every other Tuesday: with a green smoothie!  In the mix was unsweetened coconut milk, cold water, chocolate Vega One, collagen peptides, half of a frozen banana, a tablespoon or two of frozen blueberries, a few slices of frozen zucchini, and tons of frozen spinach.  It was delicious, as usual.

baked_sweet_potatoI ate my second breakfast at work around 10:30.  It consisted of a pre-baked sweet potato topped off with sunflower seed butter.  I am currently super-duper obsessed with this combination for breakfast.

hot_dogs_as_a_bunLunch consisted of three parts all eaten within the time-frame of 1:00 to 3:00.  I started things off with two organic Applegate beef hot dogs (as a bun) topped with sauerkraut, dill relish, and yellow mustard.

brussel_sproutsOn the side I dug into a serving of cooked brussel sprouts seasoned with salt and pepper.

frozen_grapesWhen I was hungry again around 2:30, I ate the frozen grapes that I packed.  Frozen grapes honestly taste like candy to me.  They are perfect if you have a sweet tooth!

red_delicious_appleI ate an apple around 4:00 because I felt hungry and needed something to hold me over until dinner time.

wineDinner was extra fun for a week night because I met Erin at Jordan’s apartment to grill out for the evening.  We started things off with a bit of wine.  It was a tad sweet for my liking, but that did not stop me from having a small glass.

hilarys_eat_well_burgerAs we sat down with our wine, we also plated up our delicious grilled food.  I had a grilled veggie burger, grilled asparagus, and fresh strawberries.  It was crazy good.

plantain_chips_wholly_guacamoleOf course I could not end things there.  I had a craving on the brain when I drove home for my current favorite snack obsession: plantain chips dipped in guacamole.  I seriously love this combination.  You must try it if you have not already!

That’s a wrap, y’all!  I hope your week is going great.  Mine sure as heck is.

    Does the lack of carbs for n this diet bloat you? It is the one problem I have had with it. I can't find a solution. Please share if you deal with it and have. Hope the remainder of your trip is awesome!

      I haven't noticed it, but maybe it is because I'm used to the bloat anyways from eating so many veggies ;)

    I don't know if it counts as a snack, but a japanese sweet potato (microwaved) and topped with raw coconut butter and cinnamon, eaten hot dog style ;)
    • ClnEatingVegGrl June 28, 2015, 3:54 pm
      Yes, yes, yes!! I LOVE Japanese sweet potatoes!

    I can't believe I just discovered the idea of adding nut butter to sweet potatoes...its magic!
    • ClnEatingVegGrl June 28, 2015, 4:23 pm
      Isn't it SO good? I'm obsessed.

    OMG Plantain Chips and Guac sound so yummy! I'll definitely have to try that sometime. Also, using the hot dogs as buns is total genius! Cookie Yi recently posted...Mini Vacation in Santa Monica!My Profile

    I LOVE plantain chips! But my favorite snack is hands down toast with crunchy peanut butter and sliced banana. Nothing makes me happier! Andie @ The Well Bread Baker recently posted...Gluten free, paleo plantain bread [recipe]My Profile
