Once the kids were off to school today, I stopped by No Frills just to pick up some fruit for lunches and snacks. Close to $200 and a full trunk later, I drove home thinking now I have to get all this stuff out of the car and put away. For motivation I put a Beastie Boys cd in the stereo. I figured they could keep me moving if anybody could. Anyway, that's done, the Beastie Boys are still running in the background, and it's time to move on to What I Ate Wednesday and a look back at some food highlights from the past week.
I chowed down on a whole bunch of these vegan Triple C Bars, above. They are completely addictive. Just ask my mom - she made some herself the other day, and she rarely ever bakes anymore. She just had to have them!
I have a habit of going right to the computer in the morning and forgetting to drink water for most of the day. I made an effort to change that this week by filling up my Citrus Zinger each morning. I squeezed an organic lemon on the bottom, added peach slices, frozen blueberries and a squirt of agave nectar. My new problem is that I have to get up off my butt and refill it, because I enjoy drinking my water so much now.
I cooked lentils and rice, my all-time favourite recipe, for dinner one night. I had it for lunch the next day with a Gardein veggie burger (topped with pickles as you can clearly see).
My Tuesday meals started with a breakfast of Stonemill multigrain sourdough bread, toasted and topped with peanut butter. I had my usual decaf green tea as well. I filled my Citrus Zinger with lemon juice, peach slices and cubes of watermelon. I added a tiny bit of orange juice to the water as well.
More leftover lentils and rice for lunch.
I also had a salad. I combined mixed greens with a bagged kale salad that I bought at Costco. It comes with a topping mix of seeds and dried cranberries.
When the kids came home from school I started snacking with them. They were eating sea salt Popcorners from a giant bag (also from Costco). I thought I would just have a couple, but you know how that goes. I also had a handful of macadamia nuts.
I got these Dan-D-pak sea salt macadamia nuts in my September Snackbox. My monthly Snackbox subscription service helps me to discover healthy, tasty snack products I might not otherwise come across. Fortunately for me, the kids were horrified at the thought of trying a nut. Oh my goodness, too healthy! That means more for me...unless my husband sees them.
We had to have dinner early because my son had basketball rep team tryouts. I wasn't hungry yet, so I just had a bit of homemade vegetable and pasta soup.
Later that evening I had vegan banana bread that I made earlier in the day. I toasted it in the toaster oven and topped it with some vegan margarine. Yum.
What have you been snacking on this week?
