What I Ate Wednesday: Packed With Goodness

Mondays get old real quick, don’t they? Wednesdays, on the other hand, are always welcome, thanks to Jenn and her wonderful WIAW party! I love reading through WIAW posts to see what other folks are eating to fuel themselves, and peeping in on other people’s meals always serve as excellent inspiration to mix things up in my own diet!

Of course, Wednesdays are awesome for a whole bunch of reasons. The whole “getting over the hump” thing is obviously exciting. I also love Wednesdays because in school, homeroom is extended every week on Wednesday, which means I get a few extra minutes of prep time before my first class. While it’s actually not a significant difference (it’s pnly five or six minutes longer), that extra time makes all the difference! It’s the little things right? I also reserve Wednesdays as “mom” days, so I get to hang out with my favorite lady!

Once again, happy Wednesday!


Breakfast yesterday was the same old, same old. I am working on finishing my bag of Kaia date and spices raw granola (I only have a serving left), so I can move on to new granola frontiers. I started my day with some of the Kaia buckwheat granola, coconut milk kefir (yay for probiotics!), a sliced banana, sprouted almond butter, cinnamon and unsweetened coconut. What a power bowl!

I am going to feature Saturday’s lunch for you here– the secret ingredient was this One Lucky Duck pumpkin seed “parmesan.”

I had my standard Mexican salad bowl, which included romaine, mixed baby greens, 1/2 an avocado, grated carrots, cucumber, daikon, pico de gallo, vegan parmesan, cracked black pepper and of course, the raw, vegan “parmesan.”  It really did taste a lot like the real thing, though it’s nutritional yeast-based!

Lunch dessert was some organic dried mango.

This mango bits were the tastiest dried mango I have ever had!  They were wonderfully sweet and sour, organic, and with no added ingredients.

Here’s dinner from last night.  I made a huge batch of tofu scramble on Sunday, full of all sorts of spices and veggies.

I am so sorry but I forgot to snap a pic of my meal!  Just imagine about a cup of the scramble over a brown and wild rice mix, alongside steamed broccoli, baby carrots, and brussel sprouts.

I did manage to catch my dinner dessert apple on film.  It’s a Lady Alice– my new favorite apple!  Sorry Honeycrisp.

Now you all deserve a bonus dessert since I fell through with the dinner pic!  This dessert was consumed on Saturday night after a pizza dinner.  I finally tried this Bonnievilles Power Cookie in Salty Peanut– I bought a few different varieties but had yet to try any of them!  I was drawn to these cookies because they are vegan, gluten-free and made of super clean ingredients.

The cookie was enormous and chock full of peanuts!

I heated it up for thirty seconds and topped it with TJ’s soy vanilla ice cream, vegan caramel corn, vegan brittle and dark chocolate almond bark.

The cookie was so delicious!  It tasted so decadent, it was hard to believe it was vegan, gluten-free and free of all refined junk.  I am officially a fan and can’t wait to try some of the other flavors I bought!

While all these eats weren’t consumed on the same day, all in all, they do make up a might incredible day of food in my opinion.  Boy, I love good food!

What was the best thing you ate this week?
