What I Ate Wednesday

Hello my dearies! It’s time for another edition of What I Ate Wednesday (more like what didn’t I eat Wednesday).

I started off the day with a hugh jass blueberry smoothie at Alchemy, per usual. I switched over to oatmeal for a while but I’m getting a bit tired of the texture. I also feel way better about my day when I start with a bunch of fruits and veggies.

Now that my body is used to getting up at 5am, I’m starting to get pretty hungry by 7am. Yesterday’s blend was frozen blueberries, cacao powder, hemp seeds, chia seeds, spinach, almond milk and stevia.

For lunch I grabbed a quick bowl of tuna kraut over some micro kale, spinach, and tomatoes. This stuff is AMAZING. We don’t use any mayonnaise, just local sauerkraut, apples, dijon mustard, red wine vinegar, and a bit of olive oil. Delish! I also snaked on some Shagbark tortilla chips with beet hummus and a few bites of my friend’s cornbread.

When I got home from week around 3:30 I noshed a bowl of Power O’s (my fave) with almond milk and tons of cinnamon…

Plus a flourless peanut butter banana muffin!

I took a nap before dinner and was ready to eat my arm off when I woke up, so I snacked on some jalapeño Mary’s Gone Crackers.

Dinner was some seriously yumtastic eats at Whole World, an all vegetarian restaurant. I started off with a big house salad with herb dressing followed by a vegetarian meatball sub on a house-made whole grain bun.

This meatball sub is no joke—even my carnivorous boyf adored it! The “meatballs” were a blend of tofu and eggplant tossed in a homemade sauce and finished with provolone cheese. I died.

Dessert was an oatmeal banana cookie with chocolate chips (just rolled oats and ripe banana mixed up with chocolate chips and then baked) plus a couple bites of Ally’s lemon bar.

Have a fabulous Turkey Day! See you Monday with a crazy fab recipe!

15 Clean-Eating Thanksgiving Recipes

I originally wrote this post for The Huffington Post, but I just HAD to share it with you all as well!  A Turkey Day sans plates on plates of pumpkin pie, fluffy sausage stuffing, sweet tater soufflé, and green bean casserole would be just plain wrong. Thanksgiving is a mighty celebration of calories and you’d be lying…

Cranberry Chocolate Chia Cookies ( Vegan & Paleo)

Flourless Cranberry Chocolate Chia Cookies (Vegan & Paleo)

All I want for Hanukkah is a giant platter of these cookies on repeat. And maaaaaybe another really cute infinity scarf. Oh and a shiny new KitchenAid stand mixer. Ok fine, I wouldn’t be that mad if a Vitamix showed up, either. Is it weird that when I think of the holidays, only cooking-related gadgets and gizmos come to mind?…

Crockpot Vegetable Curry with Tofu

Crockpot Vegetable Curry with Tofu + Giveaway!

To fo or not to fu. That is not the question. The question is why on God’s green earth is it two degrees outside and I haven’t even eaten pumpkin pie yet?! The seasons have officially pissed me off. The only good thing that has resulted from this polar vortex is the more frequent use…

What I Ate Wednesday

Hola lovelies! Lately my smoothies resemble a green carpet from the 1960’s (direct quote from my Whole Foods friend Tiffany). Love her. This particular blend was my pumpkin pie smoothie with Skoop protein powder and spinach. An hour later I had a piece of Alchemy’s famed avocado toast: toasted whole grain bread with smashed avocado, red pepper flakes,…
