what i ate wednesday: issue 52

 Figure 1. Breakfast: a bowl (x2) of Kelloggs All Bran, Cheerios, a sliced banana, and cow's milk. Why two bowls? I usually eat one bowl before my workout and one after. Plus, I eat more cereal than fits in one bowl. Two bowls are so necessary.

Figure 2. Lunch, out to eat with friends: a Bistro Salad with arugula, mixed greens, asparagus, raisins, pickled fennel, Parmesan and salmon with a (soy-free) citrus balsamic vinaigrette.

Figure 3. Afternoon snack: a Honeycrisp apple (my first of the season!), homemade pumpkin pie roasted almonds, and a lime sparkling water.

Figure 4. Dinner: a spinach salad with grape tomatoes, raw zucchini, red onion, carrots, leftover pulled bbq chicken, and sharp white cheddar cheese topped with bbq sauce and balsamic vinegar. This lunch-style dinner was all I wanted after an exhausting and sweaty spinning session at the gym. Cook? No, thank you. Cool, crisp, giant salad beast? Yes, please.

Figure 5. More dinner: oh yeah, I forgot to mention my two slabs of leftover pumpkin spiced cornbread on the side (topped with Earth Balance).

Figure 6. Dessert: a Jello chocolate pudding mousse topped with Enjoy Life mini chocolate chips.

And that concludes another What I Ate Wednesday (featuring what I ate Tuesday, October 2).

  4. That honey crisp apple sounds particularly good right now.... I need to get some breakfast. Lol. Question: Do you like red delicious apples? Most people say that they are their favorite, but I just don't get it. They have absolutely no flavor! :D

  7. Yum! All your food looks so delicious, and it's nice to see some normal-sized portions. I've seen overnight oats recipes that use 1/4 c. of oats....1/4 cup?? I eat 1 cup of oats every morning, so it's cool to see someone else eat a hearty breakfast!

  8. Cereal should never be limited to just one bowl. Today is feeling like a breakfast for dinner kind of night to me, and cereal is definitely on the menu.

  10. Your WIAWs make salads look so good!
    Since you recommended it and I'm living on my own with nobody to share it with: How long does the cornbread keep? Do you freeze it or leave it in the fridge/elsewhere?

    1. ok so i stored the leftover just on the counter in aluminum foil. but, we went through it so quickly. when i lived by myself i would portion cornbread out (or even make it in muffin form) and freeze it. it reheats well! PLEASE let me know how you like it.
