What I Ate Wednesday #25: Twice as nice

Posted on Updated on


This week’s What I Ate Wednesday is actually a Tuesday. I thought I’d mix it up a little. Today, I’m shadowing one of my professors and didn’t know if I’d have much time for blogging, so I figured I’d give you a glimpse into my Tuesday.

The day was all about getting sh!t done. And by sh!t, I mean a few work assignments, a class presentation, and a baking project, along with a few errands.

vegan chocolate-chunk oatmeal cookies

It was one of those days where I felt like I barely had a chance to sit down, even though I had a fair amount of work to do on the computer. I worked in short, intense bursts, which is good but, well, intense. I try not to have the same food twice in one day, but the same red lentil soup made an appearance at lunch and dinner because it was so easy. Some days it makes sense to take a long time eating a meal, and other days you just need something balanced and convenient.

Breakfast: Chocolate chia oats with strawberries and granola

Lunch: Zucchini fritters; massaged kale salad; red lentil-butternut-squash-and-apple soup

Snack: Chopped peach w/ kefir and granola

Dinner: Soup; roasted cauliflower; Ezekiel English muffin with cottage cheese, nutritional yeast, and roasted pepper

 Snack: Yogurt with cocoa powder and puffins

What are your go-to “convenience” foods?

    oooh, do you have a recipe for those cookies? they look really good! Hmm, go-to convenience foods usually include yogurt, trail mix/nuts. Though I’ve been making granola bars lately and love having them on hand too!

    Sure—it’s the one on my recipes page: http://keepingitrealfood.com/2011/01/17/vegan-chocolate-chunk-oatmeal-cookies/

    Homemade granola bars sound awesome! I tried once and failed. Miserably.

    Yes those cookies look delicious!
    I love Larabars, celery with peanut butter, an apple, and almonds for easy to-go snacks

    I want to get on those cookies right now! Also chocolate oats with strawberry. Probably one of the best combinations ever.
