Cinco Cinco Cinco De Mayoooo … woopwoop! That’s right, I’m sharing my Cinco De Mayo eats for What I Ate Wednesday. Unfortunately, it wasn’t a very Mexican-themed day–but I did try with dinner!
The day started with the return of the smoothie bowl! It had some vanilla protein powder, ice and some frozen blueberries and raspberries. I had not had one of these in AGES and it was so good!
And a snack of a plum.
Lunch was a ginormous salad I had made – so good. It had a little bit of chicken, broccoli, cauliflower, feta, avocado, tomato and a Japanese sweet potato (hidden).
And a few ginger candies.
My afternoon snack was some yogurt and granola and cashews.
And then I headed out to Barrio to celebrate Cinco De Mayo! I didn’t imbibe and only could be there for a little, but thy do have the best chips and salsa.
Before dinner, I admit I had another sweet snack – one of these freshly baked chocolate chip cookies. It was SO good.
Dinner was semi-Cinco De Mayo themed? I made some cilantro lime quinoa with avocado, feta, broccoli and black beans. I paired it with some chicken and cumin/lime roasted potatoes and cauliflower.
Confession – I couldn’t finish my plate. I’ve been getting super full while pregnant and my stomach was too full to finish dinner. After dinner, I made some granola, but somehow found room for a bowl 🙂 You know, for quality control.
I really wanted to do more Cinco De Mayo themed food and even a fun dessert (homemade churros perhaps?) but pregnancy fatigue sat in and I was too tired after dinner and making granola to do much else. Still, a satisfying What I Ate Wednesday.
Some questions for you:
- Did you do anything fun for Cinco De Mayo?
- Do you like smoothies? Smoothie bowls? Which do you prefer??

I just want to say, that about a week after that baby is out you’re going to be so happy to have full sized meals again. And take a huge, deep breath. It’s the little things.
We didn’t do anything for Cinco de Mayo, but I loved seeing all the Mexican food. And I LOVE and appreciate all the fun cultural holidays. I’m thankful God made so many different cultures. :)) Those chocolate chip cookies look perfect.
I love plums! They remind me of my childhood…lol i’ll have to get some soon!
There’s always room for something sweet after dinner! I totally missed Cinco de Mayo this year, it is not celebrated at all in the UK but it’s so much fun.
I didn’t do anything fun for cinco de mayo, but that’s because one of my pregnancy aversions is mexican food. I’m sad about that.
I am however craving those cookies you made 🙂 Anything with chocolate or chocolate chips is my weakness right now!! Also your salad looks yummy.
