WIAW: Cinco De Mayo

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).20160505_123904

And a few ginger candies.20160505_133049

My afternoon snack was some yogurt and granola and cashews. 20160505_150349

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.grnaola

 

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??

  1. 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.

  2. 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.
