Hey hey! I’m back and rolling with another edition of What I Ate Wednesday! These are my eats from last Friday, one of the first days that I really got back on the wagon and started cleaning up my eats and preparing all of my food at home.
I had been avoiding my juicer for far too long, so it sure felt amazing to start my day with a delicious, nourishing green juice. It contained pear, cucumber, celery, and ginger. I actually used the recipe from January’s Whole Living magazine.
Soon after, I followed it up with a green smoothie. Gotta get those greens!
The smoothie was another one taken from Whole Living, and contained mango, flax, lime, spinach, and tahini. This was definitely a new combo for me, especially the addition of tahini, but it really wasn’t bad! Different, but not bad.
My lunch at work was a quinoa salad similar to the one I posted on Monday.
It contained quinoa, carrot, red cabbage, spinach, pumpkin seeds, and Goddess dressing.
Dinner at work was a hearty bowl of homemade black bean chili.
Not pretty, but it sure did taste good. I had another bowl the next day topped with loads of fresh cilantro and avocado. Now that’s the way to do chili!
My after work snack was a plate of parsnip fries paired with natural bbq sauce.
It was a yummy and simple way to use up the last of the bag of parsnips in my fridge that would have otherwise gone bad.
Right before bed I caved into the temptation for something sweet and enjoyed a bowl of Panda Puffs cereal with coconut milk, which I didn’t grab a picture of.
Overall, I had a delicious day of food, and the rest of the week continued in similar fashion with lots of whole, plant-based deliciousness.
