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.

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.
