What I Ate Wednesday
Today I'm doing a proper, traditional What I Ate Wednesday. The What I Ate Wednesday linky party that Jenn hosts involves sharing a look at a full day of eats. Breakfast through to bedtime. Nowhere to hide. None of this showing highlights from the week like I usually do. It is a day's entry from a food diary, if you will - in pictures. If you're a dietitian or health aficionado you could, in theory, tell me what I'm missing in my daily diet. If you wanted to. Which I'm sure you don't.
Anyway, this is a look at my Tuesday foods. The kids and I slept in a bit after staying up late for my daughter's dance showcase the night before. My daughter requested fruit done up in the Yonanas frozen treat maker for breakfast. We used frozen strawberries, bananas, peaches and blueberries. (I am currently out of my fave frozen cherries - I have been to two stores at which they were sold out.) When I make Yonanas for my daughter in the evening, she asks me to add a "surprise ingredient." It's usually chocolate chips, so not really a surprise but always welcomed nevertheless. Sometimes I stick a cookie in the middle. Despite the fact that it was breakfast I threw in some chocolate chips and the three of us had frozen-fruit-that-seems-like-ice-cream for breakfast.
For lunch I had leftover curried chickpeas and lentils and rice that I had made the day before. I washed it down with my favourite iced green tea.
For dinner, I made mashed potatoes with cauliflower mixed in. Plus asparagus. And an Yves veggie burger topped with pickles and avocados.
For dessert I had a big ole vegan berry oat bar. This is one of my favourite easy and tasty desserts/snacks. You can use different frozen fruits and jams as you wish to fill them. I used mostly frozen blueberries with a few strawberries thrown in, and some strawberry jam. Just try to eat one bar. My family ate the whole pan in 24 hours.
After the kids went to bed, I had another bowl of Yonanas, this time with strawberries, raspberries and bananas...and, of course, chocolate chips!
What does a day of food look like for you?
