What I Ate Wednesday

Time for another round of let’s-all-salivate-in-unison-over-all-the-dreamy-eats.


I was working on behind-the-scenes stuff for Alchemy today so I took advantage of enjoying breakfast at home. The lovely ladies of Double Dose Bakery sent me their new grain-free blueberry waffles to try so I woke up pretty darn excited to faceplant into the box. The waffles are made primarily with eggs and coconut flour and lightly sweetened with raw honey, so they’re lower in carbohydrates than your typical waffle. They’re also free of gluten, dairy, soy, refined sugar, and preservatives. Can I get a hallelujah?!

I tossed a couple in the toaster before topping them with more bloobs, drippy almond butter, and cacao nibs. They were absolutely delightful! I was pleasantly surprised that they weren’t too eggy or spongey like some paleo waffles can be. I’m excited to eat them again later this week!


After working on a couple blog projects, I snacked on some celery with roasted garlic hummus plus an unpictured brown rice cake that I ate standing over the fridge. I think I eat 98% of my meals standing up.

Before presenting a nutrition seminar on healthy eating for busy professionals, I slurped down a half caff iced coffee with soy milk. Once again, I forgot to take a picture.

You’d think at this point I wouldn’t forget. My sincerest apologies.


I made a batch of Curried Chickpea Salad in the morning so lunch was a breeze. I also had a sliced Gala apple with cinnamon…


….and a Zucchini Banana Baked Oatmeal Cup slathered with Wild Friend’s cinnamon raisin peanut butter. Arman thought it was funny that I whipped out my peanut butter at the coffee shop. I am what I am.


After a very sweaty Body Pump sesh at The Fitness Loft, I gulped down a protein shake made with one scoop Vega Protein + Greens, a cup of water, a handful of ice, and a handful of frozen blueberries all blended up in the Nutribullet.


Then I reheated leftovers for dinner, including Tempeh & Kale Enchilada Casserole with avocado, salsa, roasted asparagus, and roasted broccoli.


I’m trying to limit the snacking I do after dinner because I tend to eat mindlessly when I blog, which definitely doesn’t make my racing mind go to sleep any earlier. I sipped on two big cups of sleepy tea and it actually really helped curb my snack cravings.

Mission accomplished!

10 Healthy Foods to Eat Every Day

10 Healthy Foods to Eat Every Day

Eating is my favorite. While I could most definitely eat my weight in double chocolate mocha chunk cookies, I find that fueling my bod with mostly whole foods like fruits, veggies, nuts, beans, and whole grains makes me feel my best. Does that leave room for my favorite red wine and kettle cooked potato chips? Heck yes….

Vegan Tempeh and Kale Enchilada Casserole...an easy weeknight meal!

Vegan Tempeh and Kale Enchilada Casserole

What is a casserole, exactly? A big fat mess, that’s what. A somewhat sad blob of I’mnotexactlysurewhattocallyou. A smorgasboarg of ingredients stuffed into a [casserole] dish and baked at 350 until bubbly. Whilst researching casseroles for this piece, I stumbled upon the word “cassserole” used as a verb. To casserole or not casserole. All I know is that I’m…

Banana Zucchini Oatmeal Cups + 5 Healthy Zucchini Recipes

When people tell me they “forgot” to eat breakfast, I get…confused. Like totally, completely, utterly, extraordinarily bamboozled. Wait. What do you mean, you “forgot?” Did you forget to brush your teeth, too? Were you blind all day because you forgot to put your contacts in that morning? What about getting dressed? I hope you remembered that one….

What I Ate Wednesday

Howdy, hummuses! As I write this post, I’m simultaneously showering, making dinner, and editing pictures for Thursday’s post while I around like a chickpea with my head cut off preparing for tomorrow’s (or today’s?) Good Day Columbus segment. Do they make a device that can do all that at once? Let’s make one. If you live in…
