WOW! My 11th WIAW!

Posted by Jennifer (the student) on June 27, 2012

Hello everyone. Happy “What I Ate Wednesday” the best day of the week! These pictures are from Monday, a day I covered most of southern California (not really but it felt that way). Thank you to Jenn at Peas and Crayons for hosting the WIAW.

This is what I ate:

Breakfast (6:45am)

Started with an un-pictured coffee and once I was more awake I made my new favorite breakfast an Oatmeal Banana Smoothie. YUM!

AM Snack (9:30am)

Potato Salad with peas and carrots from my favorite sandwich place Paninoteca Maggio in Santa Ana.

 Lunch (1:00pm)

After my haircut, I had lunch at my favorite lunch spot Dr Grubbs in Claremont.

I had Blackened Tofu with sundried Tomato Sauce with roasted potatoes and steamed veggies.

PM Snack (3:00pm)

After running some errands, I stopped by Porto’s in Downey to pick-up some dessert for later and I got Decaf Mocha.

Dinner (6:30pm)

It has been so warm so we have been trying to make salads for dinner. This night we had a Green Bean Salad with Roasted Red Peppers and Capers and a Tomato, Avocado, Cucumber and Olive Salad. Both were super tasty.


Dessert (7:00pm)

My husband and I shared the Triple Chocolate Mousse from Porto’s. What a way to end the day! 🙂

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

My 5th WIAW

Posted by Jennifer (the student) on May 15, 2012

 Hello Everyone! Happy “What I Ate Wednesday”! WIAW has become something I look forward to each week. I enjoy sharing and seeing everyone’s posts. Already I have been inspired and found many new recipes. Now that I am on summer break I plan to try all these recipes I have discovered. Thank you to Jenn at Peas and Crayons for hosting.

This is what I ate:

Pre-Breakfast (6:30am)

An un-pictured coffee from Starbucks I picked up on my morning walk.

Breakfast (7:30am)

My old reliable smoothie made with bananas, blueberries and peaches.

AM Snack (9:00am)

I am so sad I found these waffles at La Pain Quotidien because I like them too much. These waffles are packaged to go by the register and I never paid much attention to them. Until one day, we grabbed a couple to go and now I am hooked. 🙂


Lunch (11:30am)

While I was out running errands, I stopped for lunch at my new favorite place Paninoteca Maggio in Santa Ana. I had a roasted vegetable sandwich with a latte. I am in love with this sandwich it is so tasty!

 PM Snack (2:30pm)

Raspberries – soooo sweet!

Dinner (5:30pm)

Fred’s Lemon & Ginger Kale with Sesame Tofu Steak. This is the recipe I submitted for the Virtual Vegan Potluck last Saturday. We are enjoying this recipe so much; I think we will be making this all summer.

Thanks for stopping by. I hope your day is full of healthy meals!
