What I Ate Wednesday: Staple City
Hey y’all– Happy What I Ate Wednesday! How’s your week going? Knock on wood, but it’s going by pretty fast for me, which is always a plus. I just realized that I have a week long vacation coming up in a week and a half, so I am counting down for sure! I heart winter break!
Anyway, my eats this week have been all sorts of boring. While my meals all tasted delicious, I pretty much chucked creativity out of the window and stuck to tried and true staple meals. I do have a goal for the rest of the week to mix things up a bit, especially with breakfast and lunch, but we’ll see how that goes. Because I wake up so early, I hate to have to think about breakfast, so I just rotate two standard breakfasts that are tried and true. If I don’t get around to new breakfast combos this or next week, it will be a big goal for me during my winter break when I have some more time! I’d love to cook up a pancake or something along those lines!
So here’s what I have to show you–like I said, it’s not too exciting but it certainly was tasty!
Lunch: TJ’s minestrone soup heated with greens, grated carrots, cucumber, daikon and sprouts until all the veggies are steamed.
Plus a side of raw onion strings, raw One Lucky Duck cheezy crackers, and raw Dr. Cow tree nut cheese.
Fruit for dessert!
Snack: black vanilla rooibos tea. . .
and my last Two Moms In The Raw granola bar! I love these seedy gems!
Dinner: tofu scramble (with kale, zucchini, onions, garlic, peppers and many spices) with roasted butternut squash, parsnips and brussels sprouts over a mix of quinoa, buckwheat, millet and amaranth; steamed broccoli, white string beans, and baby carrots
a sliced Honeycrisp (yay that I can still find them in grocery stores!)
and half of an (unpictured) 87% Dagoba bar. . . dark chocolate is my weakness.
You definitely have seen all these eats on the blog before, but what can I say, I am a creature of habit– especially when I like something!
What meal do you consider a staple that you find yourself eating all the time?
