My 14th WIAW

Posted by Jennifer (the student) on July 17, 2012

Hi, everyone. Happy “What I Ate Wednesday.” These are my eats from last Monday. I was able to have one of my favorite lunches while I was out running a few errands. Hope you enjoy my day. Thank you to Jenn at Peas and Crayons for hosting the WIAW.

This is what I ate:

Breakfast (6:15am)

Started off with Instant Coffee from Trader Joe’s. I usually brew a pot of coffee every morning but this morning my husband was rushed. So I just boiled some water and it was fairly good. It was a treat because I did not have all the clean up from the coffee pot. To eat I had 2 slices of whole wheat bread with 2 poached eggs, topped with a little shredded cheese (Trader Joe’s Mexican Blend). Followed by my usually mix of vitamins.

AM Snack (9:00am)

An apple (maybe a Fiji?!?) and raw, unsalted cashews.

Lunch (11:45am)

Before I stopped at the market, I had lunch at the Veggie Grill. I cannot get enough of their Buffalo Wings (made with veggie chicken) and the Thai Chickin’ Salad. As you can see, we could not wait until I took a photo before we started on the wings. After marketing, I ran in Starbucks to get a Cool Lime Refresher. This is my new favorite treat, really refreshing during the summer.

PM Snack (2:30pm)

Half of a Gaya Melon (I think that is what it is called) from the Korean market. I really like these melons because they are small and sort of taste like honeydew meets a cantaloupe.

Dinner (5:300pm)

Last week, I reworked a recipe and came up with a new recipe “Chickpea and Seitan White Enchiladas” and I divided the recipe in half, so I could freeze half for later.  Monday night, we finished off the second half. They were just as good as the first time we had them.

Dessert (7:00pm)

And to complete the day Chocolate Angel Food Cake, to satisfy my sweet tooth.

July’s WIAW theme is “Food, Fun & Fitness” and here is a link to my exercise log for the week. Thank you for stopping by. I hope your day was full of healthy meals.

  1. Your post totally reminded me that I need to eat more nuts…haven’t had any in weeks (apart from nut butter!)….oops! Happy WIAW!

  2. I’m making poached eggs tomorrow – Turkish eggs!

  3. I have yet to try TJs instant coffee ( I thought there wasn’t anything I hadn’t yet tried there!). How is it? I’m usually not a fan of instant coffee (except Starbucks) but would be willing to try TJs! Happy WIAW!

  4. Those poached eggs look delicious!

  5. I’ll have to check out the lime refresher.
    And find me a melon. I like how you describe the mixture.
    Maybe I’ll like cantaloupe again (my mother gave it to us every morning for breakfast – I grew to dislike it. LoL)

  6. The Veggie Grill sounds amazing! I love healthy cafes:) Your enchiladas look divine as well- freezing half is such a good idea!

  7. love your morning snack choice! cashews are my fav

  8. Cashews are so so good…I usually keep almonds and pistachios in the pantry but I should pick some of those up next time I’m at the store–only I have a hard time eating just one serving, they’re so addicting!

  9. I need a place like the veggie grill. That sounds amazing. Those buffalo wings. mmmmmmm. Your poached eggs are so cute too – yes, eggs are cute lol

  10. I have heard such great things about The Veggie Grill! I wish there was one around here. I’m drooling on my keyboard over those buffalo wings. ; )
