It's What I Ate Wednesday and time for a little look at some food highlights from the past week. I have been trying to eat less chocolate and other sweet stuff. Hence the dried apricots. I grabbed a couple of apricots whenever I craved something sweet. For about two days. Then the apricots were gone.
I also snacked on tortilla chips with vegan cheese and guacamole.
My favourite meal this week was on family pizza night. We each made our own pizza. Mine is the rapini pizza on the right. I drizzled olive oil on the dough and topped it with kalamata olives, mushrooms and rapini that had been boiled and then sauteed in olive oil with minced garlic. I sprinkled on some vegan parmesan too. It was incredible, without the need for sauce or mozzarella. In fact, I really want more...right now!
I found this All But Gluten gluten-free raisin bread at the grocery store this week. You know what? It's actually good. Not just "good for gluten-free," but good. I topped it with Earth Balance spread.
This was my Monday breakfast. I had fruit salad and lemon poppyseed cake, both left over from my Sunday book club meeting. I had my usual decaf green tea to drink.
Another morning, I had President's Choice gluten-free bread toasted with peanut butter and jam. It was actually pretty good too. I had a side of watermelon and a decaf coffee with coconut milk creamer.
Now for my Tuesday eats. I had a strawberry banana smoothie for breakfast, before heading off to my daughter's class to make dolls.
I put together a simple lunch of gluten-free crackers, veggies, hummus, tortilla chips and salsa. I was craving sweet again, so this time I enjoyed a glass of iced tea.
I had decaf coffee with coconut milk creamer for an afternoon treat.
Dinner was vegetarian chili. I forgot to take a photo, so this is an old picture of the same chili. This chili recipe is so easy, versatile and tasty.
My sweet after-dinner treat was an orange.
What's your favourite sweet but healthy treat?
