As a self-professed grocery cart creeper, I find What I Ate Wednesday appealing in a voyeuristic way.
It’s rather nice to see what other folks are ingesting on a daily basis, without being called a stalker or brought down to the station to answer questions; not that I would know anything about that.
Here’s the thing. I dig What I Ate Wednesday because as much as I draw inspiration from blog recipes, I find it even more motivating to see so many different meal ideas converge in one place, at one time. It’s the ultimate dinner party, with breakfast and lunch making their way to the feast as well. No stone is left unturned, and no meal is turned away. In fact, the more the merrier. You should bring all your eats because if our lovely hostess finds out your withholding food, there’s a good chance she might come after you with her whisk. I hear she can crack that thing; in a good way, of course.
Without further ado, I give you my Sunday eats.
First breakfast was a cup of coffee and a bucket of water, followed by just over an hour of Vinyasa Yoga. Oooommmmm.
Second breakfast was a ginormous smoothie which I was kind enough to share with the Hubby, on account of still feeling all zen. In the blender, we have frozen pineapple pieces, two bananas, a boatload of strawberries and blueberries with a dash of Spirulina, Bee Pollen and Flax Powder.
Lunch came an hour or two later and included a whole wheat toasted veggie pita with a side of rice and beans from Liquid Planet. This is the kind of fast food I adore.
Later in the afternoon, I had another cup of coffee because I have a caffeine addiction and I just so happen to like the stuff. Also there was water; there’s always water.
Dinner was a bowl of my newest soup creation: Potato Broccoli Pesto. As much as I wanted to inhale two bowls, I showed restraint so I could photograph the leftovers the next day.
It’s also why I paired my soup with two Butternut Squash Cheddar Drop Biscuits. A girl’s gotta eat.
Not to be completely outdone, dessert was a few squares of this Uganda Chocolate Bar, I was fortunate enough to win in a blog giveaway. Hello Cocoa indeed.
I also managed to sneak one Banana Blueberry Buttermilk Soaked Oat Muffin into my mouth, except this batch was a gluten-free version, made entirely with oat flour, just for kicks.
This was a pretty solid fruits and veggies day for me. Here’s to keeping it up and drawing motivation from other What I Ate Wednesday contributors. Happy Eats.
