What I Ate Wednesday

Cherry Chocolate ShakeI still can’t get enough of my Cherry Chocolate Shake for breakfast. It’s so filling and delicious!


bowl of salad and fried egg with spinachI started my lunch with a mixed green salad, topped with diced cucumber, roasted red peppers and a homemade Italian-style dressing.

Followed by a large veggie omelet, filled with sauteed onions, green peppers, spinach and shredded raw goat cheddar. I made this omelet using my cast iron skillet, and I was so impressed that the eggs didn’t stick! Just goes to show, the more you use cast iron, the more non-stick it gets over time.

Late Afternoon/Early Evening

pressed green juiceMy mom is in town for a visit, so we did some late afternoon shopping and picked up some green juices from Pressed Juicery as a pre-dinner boost. We both ordered the Greens 3, which is a blend of kale, spinach, romaine, parsley, cucumber, celery, apple, lemon and ginger. My mom was a fan!


quinoa with orange basil dressingFor dinner, I experimented with a new quinoa recipe. I tossed a big batch of cooked quinoa in a homemade Orange Basil dressing (I love adding fresh herbs to dressing!), and added freshly chopped red onion, bell peppers, cherry tomatoes and shredded carrots for a chilled salad. Everyone agreed that it was delicious, so I maybe posting the recipe in the near future.

For dessert, my mom and I shared a bit of leftover carrot cake from her recent birthday celebration. Carrot cake is probably my favorite type of cake on the planet, so it was definitely a special treat!

Your cherry chocolate shake is one of my absolute favorites!


You inspired me to buy a cast iron skillet! I found an unused one at the flea market for $10! I seasoned it and have it ready to go! So excited to use it. I know for some thing it will work so much better!
