Guess what? It’s What I Ate Wednesday (WIAW) again! What is WIAW?
What WIAW isn’t about
Comparison – Judgement – Restriction – Guilt
What WIAW is about
Celebrating one of the glorious things we all have in common: We all eat!
WIAW is about food and fun! It’s about making new friends, breaking out of a food rut, inspiring yourself & others, embracing fruit & vegetables, finding new ways to eat your favorite foods, and so much more <3
Celebrate blogging. Celebrate Food. Celebrate Individuality.
WIAW is hosted by Peas & Crayons – make sure you check out the blog if you haven’t already! Lots of great meals for you to discover.
Now let’s get on with What I Ate:
Today started out with my favorite caffeinated beverage: Espresso by Illy
Then I was ready to make breakfast. This morning’s smoothie was inspired by Runner’s World, but the flavor of the original was just not strong enough for me.
- 1 cup almond milk
- 1 1/3 cup canned pumpkin
- 2/3 cup silken tofu
- 4 tablespoon natural peanut butter
- 2 tablespoons real maple syrup
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
- 10 ice cubes
- Add all ingredients to blender and mix. Adjust amount of pumpkin & maple syrup to taste.
Leftovers from dinner last night – as just as good! Tofu Nuggets & Lulu’s Mac N Cheese from Peas and Thank You Cookbook
Thanks to JL Goes Vegan, I am addicted to Toast with Nutritional Yeast & Oil (she probably doesn’t even know her tweet weeks ago has inspired this!). Today’s oil was Peanut, this seems to be a great pre-run snack for me! I got halfway through this yummy-ness before remembering to snap a picture.
Wednesday night also equals Run Club – which means dinner with the group after the run! Tonight I noticed Veggie Fajitas on the Taco Mac menu, which was a nice way to end the day (minus the cheese & sour cream).
This was accompanied by a surprisingly flavorful, spicy, and sweet Sam Adams Double Pumpkin…
Which also happened to be my 325th beer (all different) at Taco Mac, earning me my Ph. D in Beer. My reward? A nice receipt commemorating this evening and a Brewniversity Jacket (to be shipped to me) which I am confident will not fit me.
It’s still awesome! 🙂
