What I Ate Wednesday 9/14/2011

Psss….

I’m going to let you in on a little secret.

What I ate Wednesday is actually what I ate on Tuesday.  I have tried eating three meals and a snack in a hurry so you could see what I ate on Wednesday, but that much food before noon, left me with a belly ache.

 

You don’t believe that for a second, do you?

 

Breakfast - 

 

Glorious oat bran with some pumpkin I found in the freezer.  It’s just about time to start stocking my shelves with cans and cans of pun’kin! 

 

Ingredients:
1/2 cup oat bran
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup almond milk
~1/4 cup pumpkin
1/2 banana, sliced
1/4 tsp. pumpkin pie spice
1/4 tsp. cinnamon

Toppings:
1 Tbsp. homemade sunflower seed butter 
dried cranberries

 

 

Lunch - 

 

Chicken curry leftovers made with mushrooms, chicken, garlic, red and green bell pepper, eggplant, yellow curry, cumin, and coconut milk with a bit of brown basmati rice

I make this all the time but always forget to post the recipe.

 

I put my leftovers over a big pile of spinach and had a sweet and juicy nectarine on the side.  

 

Can you tell I’ve started using Instagram for the iPhone.  Look for me under “foodiefresh” if you want to follow me! 

 

I also had an afternoon snack that escaped my camera (snacks are tricky like that): 1 cup Greek yogurt + 1/3 cup frozen blueberries. 

 

Dinner was with my two favorite girls, my best friend Candace and her daughter Lizzie.  Aren’t they pretty? 

 

We had a light dinner of salad with grilled chicken and light ranch dressing.  I also brought a bottle of Pinot Grigio. 

 

 

After a fun night hanging out, Rascal and I hit the road and headed home.

My after dinner snack somehow eluded the camera as well.  I had a bag of 100 calorie popcorn and two Adora chocolates.  Sweet and salty are my favorite.

Curry dishes are my go-to dishes when I want to use as many different veggies as possible in a meal, what’s yours?

  1. Not a curry fan but I love kitchen sink salads. Will dump whatever I have in the fridge with some kind of left over protein. Great for during the week.

  2. Veggie stuffed burritos or stir-fry! Your curry dish looks delicious though – that might soon be on my “go-to” list! :)

  3. If I want to use up a ton of veggies I usually make some sort of vegetable soup. Always turns out good no matter what veggies you use!

  4. To use up veggies, I’ll usually throw them in a stir-fry.

  5. Curry over spinach is also one of my favorites, and I’m glad that I’m not the only one that does it. Curry is also delicious over roasted cauliflower cut up small. Kinda tastes like rice, but with less carbs and more veggie power.

  6. My go to dishes are probably huge salads. I just throw it all in there.
    That oat bran looks seriously delicious, especially with homemade ssb. I’ve been wanting to make my own….how do you get it so smooth?
    and my wiaws are always wiat (tuesday) because then you’re supposed to post it on wednesday. hm….doesn’t make sense does it, if you think about it :)
