what i ate wednesday: issue 21

Before you get too concerned that I only ate salad on Valentine's Day, please note that these 'eats' are from Monday. Tuesday? Well, let's just say chocolate and wine was involved...

  Figure 1. Pre-run fuel: 1/2 banana and coffee. Are you guys sick of seeing this yet?

Figure 2. Breakfast: a bowl of Kashi GoLean Original mixed with Post Great Grains Raisins, Dates, and Pecans cereal, 1/2 sliced banana, and almond milk.

Figure 3. Lunch: a mixed green salad beast with raw cabbage, leftover roasted zucchini and squash, grape tomatoes, Craisins, peanuts, hummus, and balsamic vinegar.

 Figure 4. Afternoon snack: plain Greek yogurt, pumpkin puree, and cinnamon.

Figure 5. Dinner: a salad beast so large that I don't even want to talk about it. Let's just say I couldn't finish it - and I may not eat salad the rest of the week. This beast contained mixed greens, spinach, raw cabbage, grape tomatoes, onions, cucumber, yellow bell pepper, a Morningstar chicken patty, peanuts, chopped dates, hummus, and balsamic vinegar.

 Figure 6. Dessert: a bowl of dry Quaker Oat Bran cereal (look for a cereal experiment review this week) with cinnamon.

And that concludes another What I Ate Wednesday (featuring what I ate Monday, February 13).

  1. mmmm missing golean. Seriously my favourite cereal because of all the different textures. I always mix it with fruit and a cup of wheat puffs. I MISS THAT!
    I miss huge salads as well. I'd have to run to the shops daily (or twice daily) if I wanted to have salad the way I love it at home.
    cereal experiment? I'm keen!

  2. I approve of your monstrous salad beasts. That being said, I can't believe I've never tried cabbage in my salad beasts until this week - I attribute it to avoiding uncooked veggies most of the time, but they taste really good. Good to hear your cereal experiment's still ongoing!

  10. Mmm pumpkin + Greek yogurt looks so good.

    Huge salads always turn me off...I don't know how some of the bloggers eat it for like 2 out of 3 meals every day. Yours sounds really good though! Dates in a salad? Hey...if it works ;)

  18. Your breakfast is perfect... I know it's just a bowl of cereal but that is like my favorite thing ever... especially with the Go Lean! Great eats here! I can understand being a bit turned off salad after a sh*t ton of it!
