Another week has gone by and it’s time for another round of What I Ate Wednesday! A wonderful day filled with food, friends and lots of fun!
Yesterday I started off with a delicious breakfast. Banana Kodiak cakes topped with a berry medley, chia seeds, almond butter and more banana! Definitely one of the tastiest breakfasts I’ve had in awhile! My sister and I made these pancakes when she visited a few weeks ago, and I hadn’t stopped thinking about them since. These pancakes are deliciously light and fluffy and take a mere two minutes to cook. Yum and yum.
Mid morning I had a typical snack of pretzels. While I love these pretzel slims I’ve found at Trader Joe’s, they are a bit too salty for me. I wish they had an unsalted version!
After spending the whole morning working on grad school projects, I took a break for lunch. I enjoyed this tasty salad with almond pulp, tomatoes and balsamic vinegar, along with some carrots and hummus. I ended up eating the apple later that afternoon, and instead ate a piece of toast with tahini. This simple and delicious meal was eaten while watching an episode of The Office, way back in season 2. I can always count on that show for a good laugh!
During my nutrition class I ate some raisins and pistachios for a snack. They were pictured at home before I left, but they sure helped me power through the three-hour long course.
Once home that evening I snacked on a few more pretzels before I had some amazing “Enchantiladas” that my brother made for dinner. These are a take on your typical enchiladas except he made them vegetarian by using tempeh instead of meat, and in place of enchilada sauce they were smothered in a habanero salsa. Taste! These lovely enchiladas were filled with kale, black beans, bell peppers, onions and some delicious seasonings. I topped mine off with some fresh cilantro and have to say they were enchanting indeed.
I ended my night with a slice of the Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie I made the other night. The rich, velvety texture of this is absolutely wonderful! I used a pre-made crust from Trader Joe’s, which was pretty boring, but I’ve been enjoying scooping out the filling for a delicious dessert!
