Happy What I Ate Wednesday! Does anyone else feel like it should be Thursday, or even Friday? I’m still recovering from the Fourth of July and a busy work week.
Anyway, these were my eats from Monday. I got back late Sunday from our trip to Milwaukee and didn’t go to the store. I didn’t meal prep. So here it is – what you see is when I don’t have groceries (until the end of the day).
The morning started with another smoothie bowl. I know – for a person who doesn’t like smoothies, I’m starting to really enjoy smoothie bowls. They can’t replace my typical eggs, but when you don’t have any groceries but do have some frozen fruit, a Vitamix and protein powder at work, this will do. Again, it doesn’t look that pretty but it tasted pretty good. It was some Hemp vanilla protein powder (free sample I had gotten in the mail), some water, some ice, and some frozen strawberries and blueberries. Topped with some flaxseed and chia seeds for texture. AND eaten with a spoon. Evne though some of it was in a glass (see how much it made?!)
Lunchtime I headed over to one of my favorite downtown sandwich and salad places, Stone Oven and got my favorite salad. Janea’s salad. Feta, chicken, sun-dried tomatoes, roasted red pepper, bread, croutons, tabbouleh and couscous salad. Such a good meal. I was in food heaven.
Followed by a nectarine and a few nuts (not pictured) AND some white chocolate chips (I had already eaten some when I took the photo).
I also had some Werther’s and mustard. Yes, I like mustard packets. By themselves.
For dinner, I had plans to introduce a friend to some zoodles. She had never had them before, so I headed over to Heinen’s after work to pick up some goodies to cook and we ended up making a dish for Meatless Monday – vegetarian lomein with zoodles instead of pasta. It was pretty good!
She brought over dessert – some paleo zucchini brownies and cookies she had made. They were both really good! I’m a purist when it comes to dessert, and these didn’t taste like traditional cookies and brownies – but they were still really tasty. I may have taken some for leftovers. Zucchini brownies for breakfast anyone? (It may defeat the purpose, but they’re so delicious with peanut butter too :))
So there you have it. That was my day without groceries until the evening. Click on the badge below to see what WIAW is all about.
Some questions for you:

- Anyone like me? Do you eat mustard plain?

Hey if the brownies have zucchini in them, then they’re a perfect breakfast 😉 And YAY for zoodles!
I had one with peanut butter on it for breakfast 🙂 All about adding PB to anything!
So I usually feel like I could eat any meal with you although you lost me at the Werther’s and mustard packets. I love Werther’s and I know some people love mustard (not me), but one right after the other!?! 🙂
Hey, we all have our own quirks 🙂 AND I know for a fact that we probably wouldn’t eat ribs together!
I feel like white chocolate gets such a bad rap, but I LOVE white chocolate. I really want it now!
Me too – LOVE white chocolate!
Best to go breakfast – sliced apple and oatmeal with almond butter 🙂 I’ve had vegan keylime pie before and I was blown away! It was SO good… definitely couldn’t make it on my own though.
Mustard Packet?! ALONE?! lol thats interesting.. i do love me some mustard!
Loving the paleo desserts! I’m intrigued by the mustard packet, but really glad you showed in on the blog! We definitely all have our quirks and that’s a good thing 🙂
While I have never had yellow mustard by itself I have topped it on steamed veggies before and usually put it on sandwiches and burgers. Your smoothie bowl looks so cold and delicious. I am not a huge smoothie fan at breakfast as I find they don’t keep me full. Might need to try a variation as a frozen evening cold treat though on these warm days 🙂 Happy Wednesday Melissa!
I love smoothie bowls right now! I have to eat them with a spoon otherwise they are gone way too fast, and then I’m sad and a little hungry 😉
i like the grainy brown mustard plain…does that count? basically i’ll use anything as a vehicle to eat that stuff. smoothie bowls sound so good. my fave on-the-go breakfast is a banana and a soy latte.
