What I Ate Wednesday

by danielle on January 2, 2013

Happy Wednesday! Welcome back to another What I ate Wednesday. Hosted by Jenn over at Peas and Crayons. After a bit of a break last week to share my Christmas with you I am back with some meals from my week. Thanks goodness for Instagram. I’ve been terrible about capturing pictures of my meals lately so this week you are getting my meals from the week courtesy of my Iphone! Check it out…

 Breakfasts have been simple. Almond milk yogurt and iced coffee. This almond milk yogurt is surprisingly amazing! I’ve been experimenting with giving up dairy again but have been loving yogurt lately so this was a perfect replacement. Plus it’s not packed with sugar like most other dairy free yogurts. It’s sweetened with fruit!

The only downside is there is only 3 grams of protein in it which I realized after eating my first yogurt and being hungry only an hour or two later. Lesson learned that eggs will always be my favorite breakfast.

Snacks have been simple as of late…

Banana with almond butter

Meals have been an attempt at getting in extra veggies to make up for the holidays…

Rice noodles, veggies, edamame, and hemp seeds

Butternut squash, roasted potatoes, and carrots.

Spaghetti squash, tomatoes, and spinach

Last but not least I have to share that Sophie started off the New Year in style yesterday! We had a great family filled day and I hope everyone else had a great start to their new year as well!

Sophie’s little sweater is adorable! I really want to give that yogurt a try….too bad it doesn’t have much protein. I’ve been trying to up my veggie intake too.

danielle January 2, 2013 at 1:39 pm

I know if only it had more protein it would be perfect!

I can’t believe I haven’t had spaghetti squash since last year – I need to change that!

One of my favourite recent meals was homemade pizza last night. :D

So got me craving for butternut squash mash now! And I love edamame beans, they have such a lovely subtle crunch.
Aww I swear every time I see a photo of Sophie I swear she can’t get cuter, and then you upload another!

I’m dying over Sophie’s little sweater, such a cutie pie. I’m totally intrigued by that almond milk yogurt now! Sounds super interesting. Your meals all sound super good and nutrient packed! Wahoo. I was so lazy yesterday ha, it was awful.

Sophie <3 I spent the first day of the New Year with my family as well. Shopping followed by dinner was a pretty great way to start 2013. Happy New Year, Danielle :)

What a bummer about the almond milk yogurt. It makes sense though. Love the almond butter in the packet. Why have I never seen those!?

Reply

danielle January 2, 2013 at 7:48 pm

They’re my favorite! Perfect for packing on the go.

Hello~ I was wondering if you had any thoughts or suggestions or could help me figure some things out. I have always done strictly cardio and know have started crossfit too. I can’t quite figure out what is going on with my body, I have been really bloated lately and seem to retain water easily. Can not eating enough calories for the workouts make you retain water. I seem to eat around 1200-1300 calories a day and sometimes, I know this is bad but it may be less on random busy days. I just started reading Whole 30 book about cortisol and such and wondering if this is what is happening.

Thank you,
Heather

That meal with the sweet tater is so simple yet so delicious!! I love all of those foods. Seriously the best meals to me are the easiest to make with just a few simple ingredients!

Reply

danielle January 3, 2013 at 12:37 am

I couldn’t agree more! Simple meals are the best!

Caitlin January 2, 2013 at 8:42 pm

Sophie looks beyond fab! Sophisticated Sophie, that’s her.
I totally drooled over that spaghetti squash pic you put up on IG. I miss spaghetti squash, I had some in Florida with fish and mixed veggies, still dreaming of that meal!
I will need to look for that brand of almond milk yogurt. Been looking for a brand to try that isn’t so high in sugars.

danielle January 3, 2013 at 12:40 am

Hahaha aww I like that nickname for Sophie!

Reply

Heather January 2, 2013 at 9:52 pm

your dog is so adorable!

So Delicious makes an almond milk yogurt that has added pea/rice protein…i buy the plain and add a little stevia (though i’ve seen other flavors)…it’s pretty good!

Reply

danielle January 3, 2013 at 12:40 am

I’ll have to try that one too. Thanks Heather!

awww! I love Sophie’s sweater. I tried coconut milk yogurt and almond milk yogurt for breakfast, but it left me starving!! Eggs are my favorite breakfast right now too!

Reply

danielle January 3, 2013 at 12:58 pm

Yes it tasted great but I was so hungry!

Hannah @ CleanEatingVeggieGirl January 3, 2013 at 2:59 am

I would love to try that yogurt, especially on the days when I follow a vegan diet. It is unfortunate, however, that it does not have much protein :( .

Reply

danielle January 3, 2013 at 12:59 pm

I know! If only it had the protein it would be perfect!

Giselle@myhealthyhappyhome January 3, 2013 at 4:29 am

OMG! The sweater is adorable! Yummy eats as usual :-) My day yesterday was filled with cleaning up after my sick boys so my eats were few and far between with no photos. So I skipped this weeks WIAW but enjoyed reading about your healthy eats!

danielle January 3, 2013 at 12:59 pm

Oh no! Hope your boys feel better soon!

It looks like you did a great job of getting all your veggies in. I love the bowl of veggies with the noodles. The colors are fabulous, and so is your cute little doggie.
