WIAW

Day late…Dollar short. Story of my life! But since It’s What I ate Wednesday I thought I’d show you what I REALLY did eat on Wednesday!

Breakfast:

1/4 cup cooked quinoa, 1/4 cup raisins, 1/2 smashed banana, 1 cup unsweetened almond milk, 1 tbs slivered almonds, cinnamon and agave

Lunch:

Vegan Mac and Cheese Casserole and Vegetable Soup

Dinner:

Morning Star “Chicken” Patty w/ ketchup on sandwich thin – Apple sliced with peanut flour sauce

Dessert:

NOTHING exciting! I came home SO hungry last night that I almost ate the lunch I had for dinner too. That would’ve been pretty to share.

I’m also still mildly addicted to pinterest. Yesterday I made another monogram for our bedroom.

I drew a block-letter k on a 11×17 piece of white cardstock. Then I glued the buttons on one-by-one and overlapped some to give it a 3-d effect.

Love it 🙂

Outfit:

Awkward picture.

Yellow Cardigan: H&M

Brown Tank: Nordstrom

Jeans: True Religion

Headband: Forever 21

Necklace: Nordstrom

I skipped my workout yesterday but need to get on it today – I have a LONG weekend of fun ahead of me 🙂

Questions: Do you put ketchup on your “chicken” patties? I would never eat it with grilled chicken but it seems right to me when it’s breaded.

Flexitarian

What is a flexitarian you might ask? My definition is someone who will eat vegan, vegetarian and occasionally eat meat. That’s exactly what I do. I’m flexible – I will eat it all!! 🙂 Sometimes I have cereal and salads all day, sometimes I’ll have a bacon egg and cheese bagel for breakfast and steak for dinner – I eat what I want.

Yesterday I had a vegetarian (almost vegan) kind of day which means I had NO meat and very minimal dairy.

Breakfast (the only time i had dairy):

VitaMuffin sugar-free chocolate top w/ 0% plain greek yogurt, 1/2 a banana and raisin almond Love Grown granola.

Lunch:

Organic quinoa, meatless meatballs, organic marinara sauce (the meatballs are still frozen in this picture)

Snack:

Roasted Red Pepper Hummus, cucumbers, tomatoes and tortilla chips

Dinner:

Cereal combo: Kashi honey almond go lean crunch, fiber one 80 calorie squares and unsweetened almond milk

Dessert:

Dairy-free ice cream sandwich by Tofutti *very aware i need a manicure*

To be honest, when I eat this way i feel 100x better than if I had chicken or meat during the day – but sometimes my body craves bacon so that’s what it gets! The only thing I would really miss if I did go full vegetarian would be pork.. So for now, this works for me. Maybe one day I’ll go balls to the wall full on veg-head. Until then expect to see a variety of meals!

On my to do list: Find the perfect birthday dress & pack for a weekend getaway – oh, and work.

HAPPY FRIDAY!

QUESTIONS: Do you ever eat full vegetarian meals all day? If you’re vegetarian do you eat vegan meals sometimes?
