What I Ate Wednesday


Happy What I Ate Wednesday! I hope you have been enjoying delicious, healthy food this week. Although the weather has been highly inconsistent, with everything from sunshine (very little) to rain to wind to snow, we have been acting like it's warm when it comes to meals. Quick and simple is the goal.

We continue to love sandwiches made of chickpea tomato salad on warmed naan bread, above. So yummy. I satisfied my pesky sweet tooth with a delicious cherry vanilla creme natural soda from Blue Sky.

As a change from my regular pb & j toast, I decided to make a panini of vegan cheese and tomatoes for breakfast one day.

Although I am a fan of Daiya's vegan mozzarella shreds, I had yet to try any of their wedges. I decided to spring for the jack style wedge. I tried a raw slice first and wasn't that thrilled, but it was delicious melted on the panini.

In the name of quick meals, we relied on some packaged products this week, like sweet potato fries and Gardein's crispy faux chicken tenders. They taste like a really decadent treat. I try not to have them too often because I aim to have soy protein and wheat in moderation.

But this week I'm giving in to my cravings, and we had Gardein's "Crispy Chick'n" another night, along with some frozen potatoes.

This is Monday's lunch, with various leftovers including garlic noodles and roasted potatoes from Sunday dinner. I quickly boiled some spinach to add greens. My sweet tooth can't be stopped, so I had iced tea to drink.

Yesterday at lunch I found leftover noodles in the fridge. So, I sauteed tofu cubes and frozen veggies in olive oil, added the noodles and stirred in Bragg's liquid aminos for flavour. Simple and delicious.

Even though they are aimed at children, I have been snacking on these tasty, gluten-free peanut choco crispy rice EnviroKidz snack bars all week. I even hid them from my daughter. Seems mean, I know, but she would have them all gone before I could even eat one. She snacks ALL THE TIME.

I have also been snacking on oranges and the nutrition-friendly banana.

I lost count of how many of these gluten-free peanut butter and jam cookies I ate yesterday. I highly recommend trying this recipe. People won't know they're gluten-free and vegan. I'm off to have two (or three) more now!

What are you snacking on?
