What I Ate Wednesday, Tuesday eats edition


This What I Ate Wednesday, I am looking at all of the food I consumed on Tuesday.

Let's start with breakfast. I just went grocery shopping on Monday, which means there was still fresh fruit in the house. I enjoyed some Nature's Path pumpkin flax granola with peach slices, raspberries and soy milk. I also had water with Emergen-C in it. I have had a crackle in my throat for a few days, so I am trying to ward off any illness. I added a clementine for good measure.


Mid-morning, I made banana muffins with chocolate chips. This time I replaced 1/4 cup of the oats that I usually use with Hemp Hearts for added protein. In my cup is Van Houtte decaf coffee brewed in my Keurig machine. I don't generally drink coffee, but this coffee is tasty and easy to make and I have been drinking a cup almost every day. Call me wimpy, but I can feel the effects of the caffeine, even though it's decaf.



For lunch, I had spelt elbow noodles with leftover tomato sauce that my husband made on Sunday night.



For dinner, I made my favourite lentils and rice. I also had a taco with refried beans, salsa, tomatoes and taco sauce. And salad...pretty much my only veggie of the day.



Dessert is part of my programming. I ate these vegan chocolate chip cookies that I made from a recipe from How it All Vegan. You would never believe these cookies are vegan. And I used spelt flour to boot.

Have you enjoyed your food this week?

  1. Good luck warding off the sickies-- my youngest just came down with something or other & we are all avoiding her like she's Typhoid Mary {just kidding, I'm making her honey tea as I type...though I might wear a mask when I take it to her...}

    1. It's hard to avoid illness when you have kids, isn't it? We rely on Emergen-C and then oregano oil for sore throats.

  2. Mmm, those cookies look so good. Do you use earth balance as "butter"? Now I'm craving chocolate chip cookies. :)

  7. So lovely to come across your blog!! I'm always happy to meet other toronto bloggers. I'm from richmond hill and grew up there before moving to yonge and Eg about 10 years ago. Then 7 years ago, I moved to california.

    I think I'm here for good now (as I can't STAND Toronto winters), but I'll always be that girl from richmond hill. it's in my heart and soul.

    I also have a similar life story (leaving corporate). I've done that twice now, and I hope to never have to go back again.

    So happy to have found you!

    XO

    1. Hey Caren, I am so glad you found me too. I can't wait to read more about your life in California. I'm jealous, though. I'm not a fan of winter either. Thanks for visiting and commenting. :)
