What I Ate Wednesday


It's Remembrance Day in Canada and together we will share in an 11:00 a.m. moment of silence to honour our military, past and present. Here are some interesting points to note on this solemn day. With Canada's newest Defence Minister, Harjit Sajjan, being a Sikh and a former soldier, this exhibition that highlights the contributions of Sikh soldiers over the years is timely. And I love this sweet, multi-flag tribute to Canadian veterans. It's difficult to comprehend how many people have lost their lives to war, but this video honours a few loved ones who paid the ultimate price. Peace to you, my friends.

On to What I Ate Wednesday. Today I'm looking at my food consumption from yesterday, beginning with my breakfast, above. I started my day with banana, raspberry, cherry "nice cream," with a few chocolate chips on top. (Because why not?) It's pure fruit, so you need a bit of fat on top. That's my thinking anyway.


It was actually a bit chilly yesterday so I was freezing after I ate my nice cream. I decided to make myself a cup of tea - in my husband's Jimi Hendrix mug. Just to change things up a bit. I'm kind of embarrassed that my tea bag is still in there. I have Irish and Scottish roots so I should probably make a proper cup of tea using a teapot. But this is quicker, so there's that.


Lunch was leftover vegan pizza with Daiya "cheese" that my husband had made for dinner the night before. I also cooked up a few vegan breaded nuggets. And I had a little bit of leftover rice and bean salad from a meal I got at the mall the day before, so I heated that up too. An easy and tasty lunch.


Realized I was feeling dehydrated after lunch so I filled a big bottle with freshly squeezed lemon juice and water.


Early in the day, I cooked up some Versatile Vegetarian Chili. I wanted to get dinner out of the way before my energy flagged in the afternoon. Later on, I cooked some rice to serve the chili over and made some fresh guacamole to put on top.


When the kids got home from school my little gal and I decided to make vegan brownies. I had a big chunk for dessert after the chili.


What are you going to have for dinner (and dessert!) on this fine day?

  1. I thought leaving the tea bag in the cup was proper. It's usually because I'm too cold and it takes too long to brew a pot of proper tea. lol. Your right it must be the Irish and Scottish roots.

    1. Ha ha. Mom and Dad used to leave the pot of tea on for hours. It was so strong! Strangely now they both drink coffee from the Keurig. :)

  3. I have to comment here on the tea thing. I throw the tea bag in the cup but my English husband would NEVER - he makes a 'proper pot' at all times...

    1. I admire his commitment. I should at least do a proper pot SOME of the time! ;) Jo

    2. And it was my Italian husband who got me started putting the bag right in the cup, years ago. Initially I was horrified. ;)
