What I Ate Wednesday #104

Morning! Happy Wednesday! Hope you had a wonderful weekend and a fantastic start to your week. For this week’s What I Ate Wednesday I am sharing my eats from last Saturday. A day filled with fun food, shopping, and hanging with my family.

Breakfast started at Colectivo, where my sister and I both had their baked oatmeal dish. It was thick, clumpy, dense and delicious! I had mine with almond milk, which I poured all over the baked oats. The orange on the side was quite the sweet treat!

Breakfast was later than I normally eat, so I had a lighter lunch. I made a salad with a few leftover sweet potato slices and some avocado. Topped with some olive oil and balsamic.

My sister and I did some shopping, and I came home with some new dress pants and this lotion from Lush. It is such a creamy and scrumptious cocoa butter/banana scented lotion.

That afternoon I had a gluten-free cheesecake swirl brownie from Outpost.

I wasn’t super hungry when dinner time rolled around, but I had some of this fruit salad my Mom had made and a seltzer water. The fruit salad was so good!

A bit later I was a little hungrier and finished the last of my tempeh tacos over an arugula salad.

That night my sister and I wanted to do some baking, so we made these luscious vegan, gluten-free chocolate cupcakes with chocolate coconut cream frosting! Our Mom helped show us how to make the frosting out of a refrigerated can of coconut milk. It was so cool! This cupcake was eaten with an episode of Pretty Little Liars. Then I was off to bed!

Thanks as always to Jenn for hosting this gathering!

TGIW,

Sydney

      The oatmeal was quite tasty! Usually I like my oats thinner and more porridge like, but this was a nice change of pace. And thanks! We had such fun baking the cupcakes and we were glad they turned out delicious as well!

    The description of your oatmeal makes it sound so good. Actually, I don’t think any places around here offer oatmeal so maybe that’s another reason why I can’t remember ever eating out for breakfast.
    All of your food looks delicious, really. I like that you’re having real desserts in there, too. Life’s too short to not have dessert. (:

      If no one offers oatmeal nearby I would try making it yourself! That way you can cater it to your liking, thick and dense or more thin and porridge-like. And then you can add in whatever ingredients you fancy! And I totally agree! Life’s too short not to have dessert :) I love baked goods (clearly!), and since I value enjoying and savoring the food I eat I often have dessert. Dessert isn’t always as decadent as what I ate that day though, moderation is key!
