What I Ate Wednesday

This post may contain affiliate links. Please read my disclosure and privacy policy.

The past few weeks have felt like a bit of a whirlwind, but things are finally getting back to normal over here. We spent our long Labor Day weekend visiting Washington state with some friends, celebrating our little guy’s first birthday. We both enjoyed our very first ferry ride to Seattle! mom and son on a seattle ferry

Of course, we were welcomed back to reality when our apartment’s central air conditioning broke this morning… for the fourth time this summer. We’re cursed!

It’s a good thing it’s only going to be 100-degrees this weekend. Yikes! I see lots of cooling foods in our immediate future, but for now, I’ll share what we had yesterday, before our home became a sauna.


pumpkin seed granola in a bowl

I made a big batch of Pumpkin Seed Granola this past weekend, for an easy breakfast option, but I forgot how addicting it is. I’ve had it every single morning this week!


bowl with salad with honey dijon dressing and a plate with scrambled eggs and spinach

I started my lunch off with a romaine salad topped with cherry tomatoes, artichoke hearts, goat cheese, and homemade honey dijon dressing. That was followed up with 2 eggs scrambled with spinach.


green juice

I haven’t had the motivation to make juice in the morning like I used to, so it’s become a nice mid-afternoon snack lately. This one included cucumber, collard greens, green apple, lemon, and ginger.


sweet potatoe with roasted veggetables and sliced avocado on top

Austin and I each had our own roasted sweet potato, topped with sauteed veggies and sliced avocado.

To finish off the night, we had Chocolate Peanut Butter Milkshakes. They are our favorite summer treat!

Oh that granola look tasty! I need to make me some! I have been munching on lots of cooked onions and sweet potato and some grain free red velvet cakes I am in the the process of perfecting – yum but not quite there yet – coconut flour can be a tricky beast:)


As always, your food choices inspire me to try harder to make better food choices. My mom keeps telling me “Laura, you are what you eat so eat GOOD, Healthy food! And that disease and sickness isn’t something that just happens to people overnight…..it’s a lifetime of bad decisions. More healthy smoothies for me.

Love that sweet potato, avocado, veggie dinner dish– will have to try my own spin on that!

What a wonderful day filled with such delicious, healthy food! I am excited to try your Pumpkin Seed Granola – sounds delicious for this time of year!


i need to try this pumpkin granola.. can i omit the chia seeds(alergy)?


    Yes, I think it would still work well without the chia seeds.


Did you wait a long time between having the sweet potato for dinner and the milkshake for dessert? I’m wondering about the combining of starch and banana.


    We had the shakes about 2 hours after dinner, which isn’t technically enough time after the sweet potato dinner for food combining purposes.


Thanks for sharing your eats – always so inspiring and full of ideas! Did you have granola with homemade almond milk? Love homemade almond milk but don’t always have the energy to make it. Wondering if there is a brand that’s still healthy but quicker..


Love the pictures! What a cutie your little guy is! ๐Ÿ™‚ Also wanted to let you know that my daughter was sitting next to me yesterday when I went to your blog to look up a recipe; your picture came up on the homepage and she said right away, “What a pretty lady!” ๐Ÿ™‚

Yum! Looks so delicious – love the sweet potato!


Megan! I hate thinking I missed you and that you were on our Island!? So glad to know you had a nice time visiting the PNW. ๐Ÿ™‚


Thank you for sharing! I’ve got to make that pumpkin seed granola! – I’ve had it bookmarked & am glad to be reminded to get to it! Sweet potato stuffed with tons of veggies is one of my favorite meals! I’ve always sauteed the veggies & am now excited to try topping my sweets with roasted ones!
