what i ate wednesday: issue 38

Figure 1. Breakfast: a bowl of (gasp!) Cheerios mixed with homemade peanut butter honey granola, 1/2 sliced banana, and almond milk.

Figure 2. Lunch: a spinach and green leaf lettuce salad with carrots, roasted red peppers, cottage cheese, sunflower seeds, and balsmic vinegar.

Figure 3. Afternoon snack: a Gala apples and cocoa-dusted almonds.

Figure 4. Dinner: wild mushroom couscous, satueed asparagus, arugula, feta, 1/2 avocado, all mixed together and topped with fresh lemon juice, salt, and pepper.

 Figure 5. Dessert: more peanut butter honey granola (obsessed) and blueberries.

And that concludes another What I Ate Wednesday (featuring what I ate Tuesday, June 12).

  13. Super chuffed my granola is featuring prominently in your diet! :) Yours does look way more clustered than mine, which indicates more sweetener, so maybe our measuring cups are slightly different (I am convinced there's a measuring cup conspiracy, as I have two totally different sets in my kitchen and I don't believe they hold the same amounts. I need to test this). Either way, extra clusters don't hurt. I love me some granola clusters :):):)

    1. I realized that measuring cup idea was majorly flawed seeing as recipes work in terms of relativity to other ingredients, so if all of your measuring cups were, say 1/8 larger than mine or something, your other ingredients would also be more, so it would still be the same. So never mind. Let's just put it down to the humidity/air temperature of our different living locales or something ;)
