What I Ate Wednesday

Hello! How’s it going? Hope everyone is having a splendid week so far. We just got back from a quick little visit to our college town. It was weird but also a lot of fun to be back in Saratoga Springs (we went to Skidmore college). It seemed to be a lot colder than I remembered, but we made up for it by eating lots of soup and other yummy things. Speaking of food and yummy things, I am here to share what I ate yesterday. Keep on reading if you want to know!

IMG_4169Breakfast: Greek yogurt with pomegranates, banana, strawberries, and granola. I’m so excited that pomegranates are in season! They add the perfect crunch and sweetness to my breakfast. I topped this with the original ancient grain granola from Purely Elizabeth. I love this stuff; it is too good.

IMG_4181 Lunch: Quinoa and kale salad with roasted veggies and chips and hummus on the side. We did some meal prep on Sunday and roasted up cauliflower, carrots, sweet potato, zucchini, and yellow squash as well as making some quinoa to throw into salads for the week. This spicy yellow lentil hummus is super delicious and also super spicy for my delicate mouth. I drank two full water bottles after this lunch because my mouth was on fire!

IMG_4186Snack: Kind peanut butter and dark chocolate bar. Gotta have something to keep the hunger away between lunch and dinner and it’s just an added bonus that it has some peanut butter and chocolate in it 😉

IMG_1512Dinner: Crisp kale and brussels sprout tacos with avocado and white bean creama These tacos are freaking delicious! We’ve had them before – in fact this is an old picture as it gets dark at 4pm here and that means weird shadows and odd looking food. I could eat these tacos for days, the white bean creama is excellent and the brussels yum! I’m already excited to have these again as leftovers.

IMG_4201Dessert: Tea with a cookie. As it gets colder all I want is tea tea and more tea. In fact, not pictured are the 3 cups of tea I drank between lunch and dinner (I have a problem). You’d think I would be too water logged to want even more tea after all that but nope bring on the tea (and pee)! This tea is my absolute favorite and I went on a wild goose chase trying to find it in stores. Luckily once I found it I stocked up. These cookies are amazing. They are chocolate cookies with white chocolate chips in them yum yum yum.

Mmm that is all I have to share with you today. What have you guys been munching on late at night when you know you should go to bed? Anything you love to eat once the weather gets a bit cooler? Do you have any favorite holiday teas you like to drink?  I’d love to know; comment below!

As always, thank you Peas and Crayons and Clean Eats, Fast Feets for hosting!

    Your meals all look amazing, but I’m SO jealous of that dinner! Did you eat it heated up? I’m never sure how to eat these “hand foods”, since they always fall apart on me. That cookie looks really yummy. Is it homemade? I love tea as well. What kind of tea is this?

      I know dinner really was the best meal of the day! I have that exact same problem with hand food and the moment I took a bite into this taco it completely fell apart on me. I think you could heat up the shells in the oven for a couple of minutes so they are a little crispier and might hold together better. Unfortunately the cookie wasn’t homemade but it was still good nonetheless! The tea is called candy cane lane and it is from Celestial Teas. Have you ever tried it before?

        I’ve only ever enjoyed green tea and Earl grey, but candy cane tea sounds insanely good! Aww, that’s unfortunate that the taco fell apart 🙁 I feel like when I eat things like wraps and sandwiches I always eat too quickly because it’s in my hands. I prefer things like salads, casseroles, and curries because I eat slower with utensils!

    Tea is all I want to be drinking right now! The weather is cold and wet; although, better than snow! I hate the snow..and the cold. Did I mention I really really hate the cold. Anyways, I have never tried a KIND bar …or at least these ones. Is that weird?
