What I Ate Wednesday

Morning

yogurt, strawberries, and walnuts in a bowl

Austin has the week off (lucky!) so we’ve been staying up way too late binge-watching TV shows, acting like we’re both on vacation– despite the fact that I still have to wake up at 6am for work. We just finished watching Broadchurch (which so good!!!) and now we’re moving on to Orphan Black. Once you get started, these shows are addictive!

Lately, I don’t get the chance to eat in the morning until after our son goes down for his first nap, and I’ve been hesitant to run the juicer or blender while he sleeps for fear of waking him up. Instead, I’ve been enjoying this combination of plain goat’s milk yogurt, raw walnuts, and fresh fruit, which can be enjoyed quietly as I work at my computer. I’ve also been enjoying a cup of decaf coffee with a splash of heavy cream this week, pretending that it helps me “wake up” in the early morning.

Lunch

salad in a bowl

For lunch, I made a large romaine salad topped with a half a bunch of asparagus that I sauteed together with a chopped chicken breast. I’m loving warm toppings on my salads lately– it makes them feel so much heartier. And I’m still obsessed with this raw apple cider vinaigrette. I make a huge batch for the week and use it on everything!

Snack

green juice

Austin brought me home a green juice, which was the perfect afternoon pick-me-up after work.

Dinner

salad in a bowl and vegetable lasagna on a plateFor dinner, we started off with a simple leafy green salad dressed with more apple cider vinaigrette and shredded raw goat cheddar. Followed by two slices of vegetable lasagna. (A recipe that will be in the cookbook– it’s one of my favorites!)

almond butter cream filled chocolate barFor dessert, I had three squares of this almond butter creme filled dark chocolate bar from Endangered Species. It’s one of the most decadent dark chocolate bars I’ve ever tasted! I was expecting it to have an almond butter center, but it’s more of a cream filling that tastes like salted marzipan… in the best possible way. It takes some serious willpower to not eat the whole bar at once!

These meals are making my mouth water. I have been trying to find a healthy different breakfast idea. I think that I have found it! Thanks so much!

Carey Huyser

Oh my gosh, that all looks heavenly. You just made my mouth water. I need to get back on a salad kick!

Kezia

I am munching on avocado and cacao smoothies, batch made bone broth and lots of onions after i bulk bought 10kg of them to kick hayfevers/allergies butt…. good job you cant smell me….

Daisy

Do you soak your nuts before eating them? I’ve heard that it helps for better digestion, but it seems like it could be a pain to do.

Natallia

You usually don’t mention water – how much do you try to drink daily? It is my understanding all the fruits and vegetables have a lot of water so perhaps when you eat a plant based diet, you don’t need nearly as much water?
Also, I’ve been following your blog for more than a year and get so many meal ideas – thank you! Will you be offering health coaching any time soon?

    Megan

    I have no idea how many ounces of water I drink, but it’s a lot! Nursing a baby makes you thirsty all the time, so I always have my glass water bottle with me. I do you think you need less water when you eat a hydrating diet, though. In regards to coaching, I’m not quite ready to take on new clients yet, but I do have something planned for the near future! I’ll be sure to post the details soon.

Jill

Do you have the recipe for the raw apple cider vinegarette on here? I would love to try it! ๐Ÿ™‚ also, when does your cookbook come out? I will definitely be buying it! Can’t wait! ๐Ÿ™‚

It’s funny how our kid’s dictate what we do sometimes and even eat. I have a four year old and two year old. Our two year old Esther get’s a nap every day and Emma usually needs one every third day. We don’t vacuum or run the blender for fear of waking up the little one’s. That almond butter dark chocolate bar looks amazing.

Meagan

OOOH! Good to know that those bars are actually good! I’ve been eyeing them ever since they came out but I haven’t ever bought one. I love their 88% dark chocolate because it is SO low in sugar. Now if they removed the soy-lecithin it would be awesome.

    Erin L

    Oh I wish everything processed/not cooked from scratch didn’t have soy or soy lecithin in it. It would sure make life easier when a family member can’t have soy…

    Christine

    Lulu’s Chocolate is amazing and does not have soy lecithin in it. It’s also sweetened with coconut sugar, so it has a lower glycemic index than most chocolate on the market. Enjoy!

      Tracy W

      Try Theo chocolate. Theo is organic, fair trade and does not use soy in any of it’s products. Everything is delicious!

Ellen

That chocolate looks amazing!

Rosie

Ooooh that chocolate looks amazing! Is the brand called Endangered Species or the store? I want to see if I can find this in Australia ๐Ÿ™‚

    Megan

    Yes, the brand is Endangered Species. I love their chocolate bars!

Erin L

Megan, you really motivate me to eat more greens. Thank you.

amy

Hello, Just want to say how much I truly enjoy your blog. I am so blessed that I found it. I love your recipes and I just made the healthy Klondike Bars. My Avacado Mint Ice Cream turned brown. Any hints on what I can do next time? thank you

Liz

I’m excited for the vegetable lasagna recipe to come out in the cookbook. Yum!

Sondi

Holy moly. That almond butter-filled chocolate bar looks amazing. We get the Endangered Species brand up here in ‘ol Canada, but I haven’t seen the filled ones yet. I hope they get here soon!!

bianca

A real treat for non-breakfast eaters:
Hot coffee with cocoa, cinnamon and big splash of cream !

    Angela

    Woooo…, coffee and cocoa? How much cocoa do you put into your coffee? Do you just make a regular cup of coffee? Sounds delish!!!

Azarius

Love your site. Tell all my friends to check it. Made choc avocado truffles yesterday. Yumm.
Where do you get those cute bowls I see in your “what I ate Wednesday” post? And what are they made of? I saw you were using one as a double boiler bowl!?

Emily @ Glitz Glam Gluten-Free

I make a similar apple cider vinagrette and lately I want it on everything too! I think it pairs so perfectly with arugula that I can’t seem to keep enough in the house! That chocolate sounds amazing too and I am definitely going to see if I can get my hands on some!! Can’t wait for your cookbook to come out too since that lasagna looks fab!

Lourdes

Hi Megan! what brand of cheese you use or where do you get your goat cheese? thx Dear!

    Megan Gilmore

    I like Alta Dena, Mt. Sterling, and Redwood Hills Farm brands, all of which are found at Whole Foods and various natural foods stores.
