What I Ate Wednesday # 20 and Blueberry Banana Avocado Smoothie

Oh how I’ve missed participating in WIAW! I am so glad to be back in the swing of things and cannot wait to see everyone’s summer eats!! In the spirit of WIAW and varying up my food routine, I tried incorporating some different foods into my meals and experimented with some new recipes. A grapefruit for breakfast!? Say what?

That’s right, yesterday morning I had a perfectly lovely breakfast and it did not include a banana. Instead, I had a half a grapefruit and some blueberries for my fruit fixing. I also had some vanilla greek yogurt and peanut butter toast. It was delicious, light and refreshing in this hot summer heat!

For lunch I had some Beet, Barley and Black Bean Salad that I made the day before. I ate it chilled and boy did it hit the spot! There was a cilantro, lime juice and ginger glaze on top of this salad and I will share the recipe soon!

Along with the salad I had a pita pocket filled with spinach, roasted red pepper hummus and almond pulp. Simply wonderful.

Dinner was a tasty new take on the classic Temp Tacs (tempeh tacos). This time I made the taco filling with onions, mushrooms, jalapeños, garlic, ginger and a little apple cider vinegar. Yum!

I also had a peach with dinner. So glad peaches are back!

And for dessert I had a Blueberry Banana Avocado Smoothie. This was such a sweet and enjoyable treat! I ended up using frozen avocados in the smoothie, which gave the smoothie the most amazing light and fluffy texture. It was like eating a cold, silky mousse dessert. You have got to try this smoothie!
