What I ate Wednesday, #11
Ooooh Happy WIAW! I guess this week is going by faster than expected, which is always a good thing! Enjoy some of my eats, although I’ll admit they aren’t all from one consecutive day..ooops. Well, only the lunch was different. :)
Prebreakfast- Crock pot season has arrived!! Fall. More fall posts to come, but how about a healthy stew with beans, tomatoes, onions, peppers, and greens to start off the day! No, I didn’t eat this for breakfast, sheesh.
Breakfast- Panda Puffs, apples, pb, and yogurt. Yummmy! After having some of Ryan’s fresh squeezed OJ.
Lunch- Leftover Pumpkin Mac and Cheese, recipe from ohsheglows! Its delicious, I added cheese to the top, shhh don’t tell.
Dinner- Beans! Done! Had a bowl with a brown rice tortilla, hummus and half an avocado. The avocados from our CSA box this year have been the best I have ever had!
Happy Hump Day!
What I ate Wednesday, #10
It’s time for WIAW! This morning when I woke up I was convinced it was Saturday, that was unfortunate, but at least it’s hump day! It was in the 90s today, I love October in San Diego!
Breakfast- Tea, yogurt, and an orange. Siggi’s was on sale at whole foods this week :)
Lunch- Salad with avocado, apples, and walnuts, topped with my favorite poppyseed salad dressing (not pictured)
Lunch was served with a side of string cheese and a gorgonzola mushroom cornbread that I got at the farmer’s market on Sunday. Delicious!
Afternoon snack- Carrots! I love munching in the office, although I’m sure the coworkers don’t really like it.
Dinner- Veggie burger (sunshine burger, gluten and soy free) not my favorite but I fancied it up a bit and served it with some homemade sweet potato fries. The sweet potato fries were inspired by Mama Pea’s recipe here.
Dessert- I even made a apple cobbler. Apples really are my favorite fruit, and it is most definitely apple season! The topping was simply coconut flour and oats mixed with some butter and sugar. It’s healthy right? Hmm…I’ll have to think about that one :) And I apologize for the lack of recipes, I’ve been creating in the kitchen just not documenting properly.
I am really excited for apple season, I think apple sauce, apple butter, and other apple goodies are in my near future!
What is your favorite fall food?
What I ate Wednesday, #9
Happy Hump Day everyone! It’s storming outside today, but I don’t mind it much, it fits the mood with me being sick and injured. Hasn’t been the best of weeks, I found myself with a re-pinched nerve in the back and some gross and evil cold. After sleeping all day I have the strength to bring you this post about my favorite thing ever, fooooood!
Breakfast- Strawberries (yes, I am still holding on to summer) with panda puff cereal and plain yogurt, topped with some chunky pb :)
Lunch- An overly grilled, grilled cheese with langostinos and munster cheese on gluten free bread, with a side of tomato red pepper soup for the painful throat. This bread I got at a newish gluten free Encinitas bakery called 2Good2B, and it really is delicious! I also had a carrot cake cupcake there and you couldn’t even tell it was gluten free. Definitely recommend! If only it wasn’t as expensive, the loaf cost me $8 I think.
Dinner- More bean tacos! I have been eating bean tacos way way too much lately. These were with some roasted chickpeas instead of refried beans( just changing it up a little). I also had a side of sweet potato, yummm.
Stay dry San Diegans! And don’t get sick! It is no fun!
What I ate Wednesday, #8
This post was supposed to be for last week’s WIAW..but it wouldn’t work when I was in NY so I am posting it now! Stay tuned for NY and Boston Eats soon. I have over 1000 pictures to go through. Patience is virtue right?
Since I am in NY this what I ate Wednesday is from a day last week! I have yet to figure out how to blog more that one picture at a time to tumblr from an iphone. Enjoy!
Breakfast- Yogurt, strawberries, and peanut butter topped with dehydrated shredded coconut! So good!
Don’t forget the vitamin C- Odwalla’s were on sale.
Lunch- Leftover gluten free eggplant pizza from local habit. Probably some of the best pizza I’ve had! Served with a small bowl of potato soup.
Dinner- Salmon salad topped with avocado. I am trying to get all my summer foods in before the season changes!
Happy Hump Day!

Ooooh What I ate Wednesday is here! Here are my lovely eats from Sunday, yippee holiday weekend eats.
Brunch at R.Gang Eatery- Egg scramble with cheddar and chive stuffed tater tots! Delicious!
Lunch- BBQ! BBQed salmon with pineapple, corn, and a potato. So good! BBQs are the best.
Dinner- An all american Big Mac…Just kidding! It’s a black bean burger from Peas and Thank You Book and served with tomatoes, avocado, and honey gouda cheese on GF bread. Best burger I’ve had in a long while.

Oh how I love these what I ate Wednesday posts. Always here to remind me that the week is nearly halfway over and weekend planning can begin :) The eats from this weeks WIAW were actually last Friday’s, which including a nice relaxing date night at home with Ryan complete with wine and cheese.
Breakfast- Granola type bar topped with peanut butter and crumbled into vanilla yogurt and gluten free gorilla munch. Yeah who names a cereal gorilla munch? I always was given a hard time about eating gorilla munch…but it’s actually so so good.
Lunch- A colorful salad with a sweet poppyseed dressing. And a side of sweet potato!
This sweet potato was kind enough to add to my work break room disasters by exploding in the microwave. Evil but oh so delicious.
Dinner- I decided since it was sweet potato 1, me 0, to try again and have another sweet potato with dinner! Served with awesome green beans and langostino with tomatoes. Redemption was mine. me 1 sweet potato 1.
And to start the evening right lots of wine! Just kidding more like lots of cheese! We only had the “?” wine. The cheeses were cheddar, honey gouda, and a stinky one. The ? wine was interesting. The reason it has a ? was that two different wines at the winery were accidentally combined and instead of throwing it away they sold it unnamed.
Any other cheese obsessed people out there? Just so good!
Happy Hump Day!
What I ate Wednesday, #6
Yippeee! Wednesday! I am really loving these posts, and they remind me that I’m about halfway through the work week :) Waking up this morning my hip feels a lot less sore so I am excited for day two of running! I am still doing well with gluten & soy free, next week I add in some edamame to test it, now here is what I ate…
Breakfast- Vanilla yogurt with trail mix and some cookie dough balls (recipe adapted for gluten free using coconut flour).
Lunch- I have been enjoying lunch outside with a book in hand! It has been really nice getting to enjoy the weather and get away from the computer for an hour. I finished the book The Help yesterday which I completely recommend. I am hoping to see the movie this weekend. Lunch was salad with tomatoes, bell pepper, swiss cheese, brown & wild rice, and cucumbers served with oranges, plums, and a side of Udi’s gluten free bread. I have been enjoying my salads without dressing and with fresh squeezed oranges instead. If you are looking to cut calories or can’t find a dressing you like try it out.
For dinner I made pizza! But, is that really surprising? But I tried out Udi’s Gluten Free Crust. The package came with two crusts for $5 which I picked up at Whole Foods. Usually gluten free foods scare me, but I thought I would try it because I really wanted pizza. I topped the pizza with an eggplant sauce, white cheddar, garlic stuffed olives, and artichoke hearts. It turned out amazing!
The crust was slightly weird, but I dont think I would have noticed if I didn’t know it was gluten free. And it was way cheaper than buying the expensive gluten free pizzas in the prepared foods dept at Whole Foods, which I was tempted to do.
Happy Hump Day!

It’s that time again! What I ate Wednesday :) Lots of good eats over here even with the gluten free/soy free restrictions. I can always manage to find some food!
Breakfast- Yogurt and fruit! I actually forgot to take a picture so think this picture with apples and puffed millet instead.
For lunch I had some salad with carrots, plums, tomatoes, mozzarella balls, and an orange squeezed on top and on the side. Also on the side were some enjoy life cookies in lemon flavor. Lunch wasn’t really my fave this time, just using up random food we have left in the fridge.
Non pictured snack- Celery and PB and hummus! Yumm! Does anyone else have an issue with the strings? I bit into one this weekend and it literally flossed 3 of my teeth. Awkward to say the least, being in a room of girls for a bachelorette party. Usually to avoid this I will use a peeler to peel off those pesky strings before eating.
And Dinner- How bout them beets? Do you like them? I definitely don’t! But I gotta keep eating them, since they are healthy and in my CSA box every week! I topped the beets with goat cheese and served with a side salad with more mozzarella, tossed in basalmic and vinegar.
Happy Hump day! I’m hoping I can get my act together and work on posting more consistently and frequently! It’s been so busy around these parts lately!
What I ate Wednesday, #4
My stomach tends to disagree with me quite often. I often get stomach cramps and there is always a bit of a constant pressure/bubble feeling on my left side. So far I have not been successful determining which foods cause it, but I am definitely on a mission to get my health together! I am re-trying gluten free because it definitely seems to help this bloaty/crampy feeling I get when I eat too much bread and processed foods. I have been gluten free since August 1st and that little bubble feeling has seemed to have disappeared (for now at least). Starting monday I went soy-free too (I am working with a RD on this) which is definitely a new challenge! Tofu? Tempeh? Nada. I have some other beans as backup, sorry soy beans great northern and black beans are here to stay. Here is my soy-free, gluten-free WIAW!
Breakfast- Plain yogurt with some homemade granola, sliced nectarine, and sliced plum! I am loving my CSA box fruit! Umm and yes..I eat yogurt every morning and I don’t really like it, weird right? I just like the way it makes me feel, full but not heavy.
Lunch- More Summer Caprese Salad with spring mix (old picture, but literally imagine this on top of spring mix)
Dinner- Finished off the day with my new favorite find..Get ready for this (insert drumroll here) Wasabi & Horseradish Cheese! Used in wild quesadillas :) filled with squash, eggplant, peppers, onion, and garlic on a gluten free Food For Life brown rice tortilla.
Have a happy hump day! I still giggle at hump day..can’t help it :)
