What I Ate Wednesday

Morning

bowl of chia pudding with slices of banana on top

I can’t get enough of this chia pudding for breakfast. Topped with a whole sliced banana, it keeps me full for hours!

Lunch

smoothie in a glass

A light green smoothie, made with a whole Romaine heart, avocado, banana and frozen organic strawberries. Romaine definitely gives this drink a more “green” flavor than spinach, but I like switching up my greens whenever possible.

salad in a bowl with slices of avocado on top

A little later, I had a mixed green salad, topped with more avocado, steamed beets, roasted red peppers, and a lemon ginger dressing.

Dinner

Un-pictured: I snacked on some fresh pineapple while preparing our meal!ย 

bowl of salad and a pan with cooked cheesy totsI started with a large mixed green salad, topped with chopped veggies, raw goat feta and lemon dressing.

Followed by an entire pan of experimental “cheesy tots.” I mixed together half a spaghetti squash, 2 eggs, and some shredded sheep Pecorino Romano, and baked them into tater-tot-like mounds. These definitely wouldn’t fool anyone, but they were still pretty tasty!

I haven’t been in the mood for sweets lately, so I’ve just been sipping on hot peppermint tea in the evenings. It’s so comforting with this chilly weather!

That salads you had for lunch and dinner looked great. I love beets and never thought to put them in my salads. How do you make the lemon ginger dressing?

Started on green smoothies this week and loving it so far, and your site! I’ve been coming up with my own recipes, and they are so yummy and filling. I usually make a blender full of smoothie, have one in the am, and have a cup every few hours once I start to go hungry. For lunch, I have a cup of broth to supplement my lunchtime smoothie. Usually have a paleo dinner with the hubby.

i switch up my greens every week! i know this is not culinary fancy but i had chum salmon last night and found it pretty good! it was frozen/wild caught from tj’s so i thought i’d give it a whirl since i don’t eat farmed. apparently, people in alaska feed that kind of salmon to their dogs haha. whatever, more for me!

Haha! We have the same bowls! High five!

I am experimenting with green smoothies and am starting my days off on a green note this week. I make them out of spinach, homemade almond milk banana, fresh ginger, chia seeds, flax seeds, vanilla, cinnamon and maca powder and usually I add a tablespoon of nut butter, but this week I bought a coconut out of curiosity and made my own coconut meal which is now making it’s way into the smoothie. I also sprinkle some freeze dried blueberries on top and eat them with a spoon when I’ve slurped my way through the rest of the smoothie.
They are wonderful and keep me full and happy all the way until lunch, which will mostly be a green salad or a coleslaw paired with something warm, like a soup.
Yesterday I had a farro couscous salad with lots of dark leafy greens, bell pepper, carrot, olives, sun dried tomatoes and pesto, because I was traveling and needed something for the train.
As a snack I had apple slices sprinkled with cinnamon and an orange, and my dinner was celery root soup with chick peas. All in all a very satisfying day, food-wise and work-wise.

I love your blog by the way, and so does my yoga teacher, she cannot shut up about it ๐Ÿ™‚ Good thing I can’t shut up about it either ๐Ÿ˜€

Last week for me was not the best food wise. My husband and I just moved to England and were staying in temporary accommodation (today is our 3rd day in our own apartment here) and there wasn’t much space in the fridge in our temp accommodation to do anything not to mention a tiny kitchen. Anyway this week I’m focusing on making lots of nutritious meals for us!

This morning I started off with some paleo type pancakes (2 eggs, 1 banana, some full fat coconut milk, different spices) blended and cooked into one big pancake, topped with strawberries, blueberries and blackberries, with a cup of coffee.

Lunch will probably be a salad of some sort with sardines and for dinner I plan on making meatballs with butternut squash in some form!
