Happy What I Ate Wednesday! Thanks for your very kind comments on my high school grad dress post yesterday. I have met the sweetest people through this blog.
I hope you are enjoying some good, healthy food this week, along with a few treats. We all need a treat now and then, especially when it's January in a cold climate. Sunshine, why have you forsaken me?
Yesterday's breakfast was quick cooking steel cut oats topped with hemp hearts, a teaspoon of maple syrup, fruit and coconut milk.
Turns out that wasn't enough to satisfy me. A little bit later I munched on a few Barbara's Bakery peanut butter puffins, along with my decaf green tea.
Today, I had instant oatmeal from Bakery on Main, along with The Simply Bar in caramel peanut flavour. I recently won a bunch of goodies over at Natalie's blog. These were the first two items I dug into.
One day I had my favourite lazy lunch of tortilla chips with Daiya vegan cheese melted on top. I served them with salsa and homemade guacamole.
On Sunday, my husband made the cashew noodle stir-fry that I had listed for Saturday on our weekly meal plan.
Yesterday, I munched on the after-school snack I prepared for the kids. They are really enjoying the fruit platters. Mind you, yesterday they also got an extra treat -- heart-shaped doughnuts from Tim Hortons.
A day after I went grocery shopping, almost all the peaches, pears and strawberries were gone. When I expressed my amazement, my 10-year-old son said, "I thought you wanted us to do well with our new year fruit challenge?" I didn't even know he heard me talk about the fruit and veggie challenge. I told him I certainly wasn't upset that the fruit was almost gone, I was just surprised.
He went grocery shopping with me this week and asked if we could buy dragon fruit, which I normally don't buy. The kind lady at the grocery store cut one open for us so we could taste it. It's similar to kiwi, but a little blander. The pink peel is beautiful. I almost hate to cut it.
What's your favourite fruit?
