What I Ate Wednesday, a day in the life



For this week’s What I Ate Wednesday, I am looking at all of the food that I ate yesterday.

All that’s missing from these pics is the can of Fanta I downed with my lunch and the organic jelly beans I had after the kids went to bed! Not my proudest food moments of the day.

I started the day with quick cook steel cut oats, topped with maple syrup, almond milk and a bunch of fruit.

My daughter wanted to make my breakfast before school, but I wasn’t ready to eat yet. So, she prepared some of the fruit for me and left me this sweet note.

I had some of my favourite vegan banana bread mid-morning. This time I made it with chocolate chips and walnuts. You can find the recipe here if you are in the mood for some yummy banana-tasting goodness. I heated it and topped it with some Earth Balance margarine.

For lunch, I threw together leftover rice and cucumber salad, some Terra vegetable chips mixed with tortilla chips and hummus topped with roasted red peppers (from a jar) and olive oil. I used Angela’s delicious hummus recipe.

Mid-afternoon, I consumed this Nature’s Path crunchy peanut butter and chocolate chip granola bar. It was pretty good, although nothing can compare to homemade granola bars.

It was Taco Tuesday at our house once again. We topped our tacos with veggie ground round, refried beans, lettuce, salsa and tomatoes. My husband cut up some potatoes to make delicious French fries baked with olive oil and seasonings.  We enjoyed all that along with a mixed greens salad.

In the evening (before the jelly beans), I devoured a Cherry Lemonade Smoothie.

And that’s it! What foods have you enjoyed recently?

  4. Looks like my kind of lunch- Some amount of hummus always finds its way onto my plate midday. This rice salad looks like it would be the highlight of this meal, though. :)

    1. Hi Hannah! I love hummus for a nice, easy lunch too! The rice salad is pretty good, but it needs something more. It has a bit of dried mint and salt and pepper, but I found it needed more flavour.
