What I Ate Wednesday (WIAW)

What I Ate Wednesday isn’t new to me. I’ve been following a few blogs that participate in this but I have yet to do my own WIAW…so here it goes.

Jenn at Pea’s & Crayons started this link – from her blog this is what “What I Ate Wednesday” is about all about:

  • Celebrating one of the glorious things we all have in common: We all eat!
  • It isn’t about Comparison – Judgement – Restriction – Guilt (good thing or my post would fail today)
  • WIAW is about food and fun! It’s about making new friends, breaking out of a food rut, noting changes in your diet/lifestyle, inspiring yourself & others, embracing fruit & vegetables, nourishing your body with the foods that work for you, finding new ways to eat your favorite foods, and so much more.
  • Celebrate blogging. Celebrate Food. Celebrate Individuality.

Last night, my husband made Aloo Chana Soup from The Garden of Vegan cookbook. [We also have How It All Vegan]. So I ate this for lunch it today for lunch. Breakfast wasn’t anything fancy – Multigrain Cheerios with skim milk with my daughter.

On Wednesday’s we have a little Farmer’s Market in the Town my office is in; Kentville. It’s always a great place to grab a bite to eat, run into people and support local farmers, crafters and businesses. I am slightly addicted to the Veggie Spring Rolls and bought two!

I could easily go back for more and would have no problems pounding them back. And, no I’m not a vegetarian or vegan. My husband is the Vegan in the family.

I had two plain rice cakes with peanut butter as an afternoon snack and then when we (Lilly and I) got home we munched on some fresh watermelon – or “MELON” as she calls it. Sorry, no pics.

For dinner, I had planned on heating up some of these amazing veggie burgers. I found the recipe on Oh She Glows (one of the first blogs I ever came across). You MUST check these out, here;  they are easy to make, full of delicious foods and easy to bbq or bake. Don’t get discouraged by the list of ingredients – I swear these are worth it. I added some herbed goat’s cheese which Lilly decided she loved 🙂

I had also bought some spinach at the farmers market today, however I left it in the fridge at work. We had little to no spinach in the house, so what I thought would be an awesome salad was rather weak in the main ingredient 😦 AND, to top it off, I burnt the walnuts – not my night.


Anyway, this was my first attempt at What I Ate Wednesday. Next week, I won’t burn anything and will have better pictures.
