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. 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)

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

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

  7. 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!

  8. 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

  9. 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. ; )
