It’s been a little while since I did my last What I Ate Wednesday post, and I want to start doing more, so here’s another!
Most days I have oatmeal for breakfast, and this time it was overnight oats–I added oats, frozen mixed berries, a banana, and oat milk to a mason jar, shook it up, and left it in the fridge overnight. After drinking my lemon water in the morning, I popped it in the microwave for a few minutes, topped it with some homemade granola and cinnamon and voilà!
For lunch I had a leftover quinoa burger patty that I made the night before with my friend Julien (stay tuned for the recipe!) on some vegan/gluten free bread1, topped with this amazing cashew Chipotle aioli from Minimalist Baker and lettuce and tomato.
I started drinking coffee again recently after a 3 month break, and yea, it’s as delicious as ever, and I enjoyed it in this cute Spiral Diner mug that I got during my recent Dallas trip. The chocolaty thing is a leftover piece of vegan/gf Almond Mocha Torte that I got at lunch the day before at Mother’s Cafe but couldn’t finish after eating a hearty plate of tempeh enchiladas. It was only a small piece, but it was so rich and delicious, it tasted like fudge!
I wanted to get some greens in, so I made a huge salad before dinner with romaine and green leaf lettuce, tomatoes, and I topped it with Simple Girl Citrus Ginger dressing, onion flakes, and pepper. Honestly it was not my best salad moment–the onion flakes totally didn’t go with the flavor, and the dressing didn’t really impress me. I ordered a sample pack though, so I still have other Simple Girl dressings to try and hopefully I’ll like another one better.
For my dinner main course, I had leftover brown rice pasta. I made a rosé sauce by blending pasta sauce, a can of cannellini beans, garlic, nutritional yeast, and red pepper, an idea that I got on Instagram from blogger Luna Lovecow. I added some mushrooms, onions, and red pepper that I sautéed in water, and it was so delicious and filling! I also had some steamed broccoli with lemon and a lemon La Croix.
After dinner I had my fave snack–oil free popcorn! (I make it in this microwave popper.) I had a huge bowl (actually, 2 huge bowls) topped with salt, garlic powder, and nutritional yeast. Yum! I also had a pear but didn’t photograph it.
That’s it! Did you make anything delicious this week? Let me know in the comments! I’m planning on sharing more What I Ate Wednesday posts so stay tuned!
