What I Ate Wednesday

Can you believe it's Wednesday again already?! I've said it before, but I'll say it again...I just LOVE short work weeks :-)

I've gotten back on track and "Operation Kill the Cream Egg Calories" is going quite well :-)

Check out my good eats.

Of couse, as usual I start with my warm lemon water with cayenne.

And then my plan is to have one of these every morning.

I just love green smoothies, especially now that the weather is starting to warm up. This smoothie has frozen banana, 1 scoop of Vega Vanilla Almondilla, frozen fruit (strawberries, peaches and pineapple), spinach and distilled water. It was awesome!

For lunches this week, I'm sticking to my leftover Southwestern Veggie Soup. I think this soup is getting better with age; the flavour just keeps getting better and better! This is the perfect lunch for a week that calls for rain and storms every day.

If I get the munchies in the afternoon, I've been trying to make wiser snack choices. Lately I've been loving raw veggies with some form of dip. Here I have a light Ranch, but I've been eating massive amounts of hummus  and roasted red pepper dip too! It's amazing how a little dip can jazz up your snacks!


For dinner, I had 20 Minute Roasted Tomato Pasta from Jessica at How Sweet It Is. I used brown rice spaghetti and sprinkled it with nutritional yeast in place of the cheese. Instead of having a huge plate of pasta, which is usually how I roll, I also roasted some butternut squash. One of my all-time favourite vegetable sides - it was sticky and sweet and oh so amazing!

This meal got a great big "thumbs up" from Derek!

Is your mouth watering with all of my delicious meal ideas? All of these are super easy, can be whipped up in a snap and are absolutely delish!!  Did you notice that I used clean, whole foods and that my meals lately have been completely vegan (except the ranch dip of course!). I'm feeling awesome and healthy and proud for getting myself back on track after a few days of indulgence.

What was you favourite meal today?

Happy Hump Day!!



  1. green smoothies rock!!! My favorite meal today, was the only one I've had so far ;) But I LOVE breakfast. It's like, my chill time of the day. I had a banana/almond milk/chia seed/peanut butter smoothie and it was SO freaking good. Yum.

  2. I have the same green smoothie goal! Though I keep forgetting to buy spinach this week! ahhhh such torture! every green monster i've seen on blogs these past few days has made me drool and kick myself for forgetting! =)

    GREAT eats! those creme eggs are long gone girly! <3

  3. I wish I had the patience to do green smoothies. I just can't deal with cutting up all the fruit (how lazy is that; it's terrible)

  4. Haha -- I need to let you in on a little secret of mine. I buy pre-washed baby spinach and frozen fruit (already cut & ready to go). All you do is toss it all in a blender and go to town! It's super quick & easy which is just the way I like it at 6 a.m.!!

  5. Nice WIAW! Love the pasta dish with butternut squash, it looks delicious. And I have no more creme filled eggs of love :(

  6. My favorite meal so far was breakfast- marshmallows and chocolate pudding. the breakfast of champions haha ;)

  7. Well that sounds like a fab breakfast if you ask me!!

  8. My favorite meal was definitely my daily oats. They are my favorite meal every day. Kind of sad. I am excited when I go to bed at night so I can have my oats in the morning...

  9. ahh i love green smoothies..they just make you feel so rejuvenated!!!your dinner looks crazy delicious too.

    my favorite meal would be my always haha
