What I Ate Wednesday, Boston edition


With the Internet problems we had in Cape Cod last week, I didn't manage to get my "What I Ate Wednesday, Cape Cod edition" up until Thursday. So, I missed linking up with Jenn at Peas & Crayons. If you want to see our Cape Cod eats, you can find them here.

We took a day trip to Boston last Friday, before we headed back to Canada on Saturday.

We picked up these delicious rosemary fries at one of Boston's handy Clover Food Lab trucks. We washed the fries down with some iced tea, perfect for a very hot Boston day. We were a bit surprised to find that it is basically cold tea, because we are more accustomed to the sweetened variety.


My son selected (and enjoyed) this barbecued seitan sandwich.


I had this "BLT" in which the B stands for tempeh.


We did a quick visit to the chaotic Faneuil Hall, which has a busy food court with many, many selections. I went for the veg sushi.


The family went for pizza. Boy it would have been nice to have a table to sit at. We ended up moving to an outdoor bench.


Among the items I found at Trader Joe's (which we don't have at home) was these frozen banana slices covered in chocolate. They were nice to sample, but not my favourite treat.


Before we left Cape Cod on Saturday, we stopped at Trader Joe's in the morning for some snacks. I got this noodle dish for my husband.



And this super spinach salad for me. This way we could avoid picking up lunch at the dismal rest stops.


A delicious Trader Joe's treat...these chocolate covered nutty bits. Yum.


Back at home, we are doing laundry, cleaning up and eating easy meals, like this salad, nachos and (Daiya vegan) cheese and hummus lunch.


Dinner: some simple pasta in an olive oil sauce along with breaded and fried tofu and salad.

  1. I love the look of that quinoa spinach salad...I haven't seen that one there at mine but it reminds me of one I've gotten from whole foods. And that tempeh sandwich looks to die for!

    1. That's why I love checking out grocery stores in other places...different goodies! The tempeh sandwich was good and it would be easy to make at home.

    1. I had a bite and it was yummy. I don't buy seitan much because we don't have much of it in the local stores.

  9. Oh wow James works right by that food truck (if it's the one by south station) and we go there to meet him for lunch quite often. He always gets the BBQ too, I like the egg and eggplant but if course it has eggs... Wyatt prefers the vietnamese truck :) You always have great food!

    1. That's funny. Yes, it was the one by the south station. Small world! Nice to have food truck options. I'm not sure what there is in Toronto. I haven't noticed anything but hot dog vendors.

  11. Trader Joe's is by far my favorite place to shop for food, but I'm pretty sure I could make their frozen chocolate banana bites for much cheaper and they'd taste fresher :)
    Your fried tofu looks really good, even though I'm totally scared to try eating tofu! I should learn how to fry it maybe...

    1. I bet you could make the banana bites cheaper!

      Give the extra firm tofu a try. It grows on you. :)

  14. Everything looks delicious! Traveling is always a challenge for me to eat healthy, mostly because we live in the midwest and there are no alternatives to meat unless I want to eat just fries or an iceberg salad. I am so jealous of your Trader Joe's finds!

  15. Yum! It all looks so good! I love visiting Faneuil Hall...it's a great place to hang out for a few hours. Looks like such a fun trip! Have a great weekend Jo! Angie xo
