What I Ate Wednesday #3

Hello everyone and happy Hump Day!  

I’m back with another edition of What I Ate Wednesday!  I love putting together these posts, so I hope you enjoy reading them.  🙂  While I mostly like the meal ideas I get from What I Ate Wednesday posts, another side benefit is the strange looks I get from my neighbors.  I take most of my pictures on my back porch since there’s good natural lighting. The somewhat-distressed wood also makes for a nice, not-too-distracting backdrop.  I think I have thoroughly amused them lately by running out into the cold (often with no shoes or coat), placing a steaming bowl of food on the ground, taking several pictures, then running back inside.  I guess I’m happy to provide some free family-friendly entertainment!

This week’s What I Ate Wednesday started off with… surprise!  Spinach and sausage quiche!  But this week I added red pepper flakes to the mixture, so it’s totally different.  😉 I ate this with a side of chunky applesauce I found at Trader Joe’s.

Around 10am, I stopped working for a quick mid-morning.  I decided on a gluten-free English muffin, which I toasted and topped with coconut oil and plenty of Trader Joe’s Everything But The Bagel seasoning.  I picked this up on my last grocery run and I’m so glad I did!  It’s delish!

For lunch, I made some turkey lettuce wraps with avocado that I dipped in spicy mustard.  Lunch has a tendency to sneak up on me and this is such a quick, healthy meal to throw together.  On the side, I had some plantain chips. I would have loved to dip them in some salsa but I was out.  Womp, womp.

For dinner, I made some Mexican beans and veggies which I served over rice and topped with an avocado.  This is definitely another “non-recipe”.  😉 I just sauteed some green peppers and onions, then stirred in some drained and rinsed pinto beans and a couple cans of Rotel.  I ended up adding lots of garlic powder and cumin for some extra flavor. For whatever reason, I wasn’t in the mood for meat, so this hit the spot!

  1. I like how lettuce can be used as a wrap for almost any food instead of normal wheat wraps. It’s much healthier, and actually tastes pretty good!
