WIAW, Finally!

First of all, thank you for the lovely comments on my last post!  But now, I’ve finally decided to join the What I Ate Wednesday, hosted by the wonderful Jenn at Peas and Crayons!

It’s difficult to track a full day of eats, with work and running around, so here is a combination of things from the last couple days.

Breakfast on-the-go, at work! TJ’s blueberry muesli (it’s so good!) with chia seeds, fresh blueberries from the store, and soymilk poured in about 5 minutes before eating.  In a glass ball jar, eaten with my bamboo To-Go Ware spoon!

Lunch (yesterday)

Roasted yellow squash (from Door-to-Door Organics package!) over a bed of baby romaine, and bean salad.

Dinner (yesterday)

A lovely meal out with the family at Park Grill in Millennium park.  Chilled green tomato gazpacho, followed by Sardinian couscous with grilled veggies: acorn squash, portobello, and asparagus.  I was pleasantly surprised by this meal, as I always remembered this place being more of a traditional meat and fish type of restaurant.  (They had some really good looking dinners for carnivores, I just didn’t order them)

Snacks & Sweet Treats

Split banana & nut butters! Left – creamy roasted almond butter, right – sunflower, both from TJ’s of course.

a few slivers of this high-protein, vegan, gluten-free cheesecake! I used Katie’s Cheesecake Mousse for the filling and a crust from Allyson at Manifest Vegan.  I cut the sugar in the crust, and sweetened the filling with a bit of agave and powdered sugar.  This is by far the best thing I ate all day.

banana-coffee-chip muffins, a recipe modified from my Vegan Brunch cookbook.  Needs a little more tweaking, a bit too chewy – but the flavor is there.  And the caffeine, oh boy.

Feast your eyes, foodies!

What was the best thing you ate today?

  1. Awww u r so sweet!!

    The best thing I’ve eaten today was a tiny tiny square of chocolate… but it’s only 6:30am, so I’m sure yummier things (and much more chocolate!) will be consumed as the day goes on🙂.

  2. Oooo you weren’t kidding about that cheesecake being the best thing you ate all day! It looks delicious! Unfortunately, there’s been no cheesecake in my days😥 BUT I did enjoy a delicious bowl of dessert oats for breakfast, with almond butter and pudding😀
