12th WIAW and 4th of July

Posted by Jennifer (the student) on July 4, 2012


Hello Everyone! Happy WIAW and 4th of July. Hope you all have a wonderful holiday. Thank you to Jenn at Peas and Crayons for hosting the WIAW.

This is what I ate:

Breakfast (6:15am)

An earlier start so I could get off to a morning study session, started with my usual coffee with hazelnut milk and stevia. Also, 2 poached eggs with fresh ground pepper and my favorite tarragon shallot citrus seasoning from Savory Spice shop. And a few assorted vitamins.



AM Snack (9:00am)

Fresh strawberries and kiwi.

Lunch (11:45am)

The urban plate with tempeh, caramelized onions, and portobello mushroom stack and a kale salad at the Veggie Grill.

PM Snack (2:45pm)

Leftover homemade kale stir-fry.

Dinner (5:30pm)

A salad with grilled chicken, greens, roasted mushrooms, sundried tomatoes and goat cheese at Bruxie. This restaurant is a waffle sandwich place and the sandwiches are good but to heavy for me for dinner.

Dessert (7:30pm)

We picked up a nutella cupcake from Merely Sweet to share at home with my husband.

Thank you for stopping by! I hope your day was full of healthy meals.

    I want to try Bruxie with you. 🙂

    OK, anytime you like. 🙂

  3. Oh my gosh…The Veggie Grill is seriously my obsession. I seem to find myself there at least once a week (which has become quite expensive!) But, I can’t help it!
    I actually haven’t tried the new Urban Plate- it looks and sounds delicious though! The All Hail Kale with blackened tempeh is my all-time favorite dish. With sweet-heart fries, of course!
    Love your blog, by the way. (:

      I know. Me too! I will have to try your favorite. 🙂 I also love the sweetheart fries. Have you ever had the side green salad? It is really simple but I like it with the chipotle ranch dressing.

  4. I take just as many supplements in the morning!

  5. Hahaha…I love that you’ve added a picture of your vitamins!! Your dinner salad looks scrumptious. And that cupcake looks very pretty too. What did you add to the kale stir fry?

  6. Your poached eggs look PERFECT! My god,how do you do that?! Amazing!

  7. That nutella cupcake looks deadly ..
    and I love caramelized onions mmhmmmmmmm

    I love that vitamin-plate ..may I ask which supplements you take?

      Thanks. Sorry it has taken me so long to reply. I am constantly changing my vitamins, I had to grab the bottles an bring them to the computer with me. I am taking: Evening Primrose, Omega-3, L-Carnitine, B-12, CO Enzyme Q10, and a Cal, Mag, + Vit D. 🙂

  8. wow I’m impressed with your poached eggs. Anytime I attempt to make them it turns out to be a complete disaster. I’m usually not a mess in the kitchen, but those poached eggs get me lol

    That cupcake looooks like heaven. I am totally wanting one right now. hmmm may have to treat myself lol

  9. I keep my vitamins in a little bowl like that too!
    that lunch. I’m about to grab through my screen at it. The mushroom almost looks like a sand castle, but it’s simple succulent looking!

  10. Mmm I had a kiwi today too! SO good!

  11. Your lunch looks amazing….that totally sounds like something I would order!

  12. Oh my goodness that restaurant sounds amazing! Your kale stir fry looks delicious too:)

  13. Oh, yum yum Nutella. In cupcake form, in any form really.

  14. Ooo… What is on that portobello mushroom stack from The Urban Grill? It looks simply divine.

      Thank you. It was very good, I am trying to work around their menu. Otherwise, I would end up ordering the same thing every time. 🙂
