what i ate wednesday: issue 22

I ate some food. I took some pictures...

Figure 1. Breakfast: a bowl of Kashi GoLean Original mixed with Madison's homemade toasted coconut granola, 1/2 sliced banana, and almond milk. (Before this I had an un-photographed 1/2 banana and coffee).

Figure 2. Lunch: a yogurt bowl with plain Greek yogurt, homemade toasted coconut granola (and yes, I most definitely planned my lunch around eating more granola), peanut butter, sliced banana, and cinnamon.

Figure 3. Afternoon snack: raw red bell peppers, carrots, and hummus. (I also had un-photographed raw broccoli and cauliflower from the work fridge).

Figure 4. Inside dinner before it hit the heat: a Gruyere and basil quesadilla on an Ezekiel 4:9 sprouted grain tortilla (my inspiration).

Figure 5. Dinner: a Gruyere and basil quesadilla with roasted eggplant and red bell pepper. A simple cheese quesadilla is a perfect quick and healthy carb + protein combination.

Figure 6. Dessert: dark chocolate pudding (notice my tiny spoon?).

And that concludes another What I Ate Wednesday (featuring what I ate Tuesday, February 21).

  9. You must REALLY love granola! ;) Looks good though, esp lunch with the pb and cinnamon. I like pretty food. On a random side note- I always wonder how some people can love a certain food while others despise it. I wish I could eat raw bell peppers.
