What I Ate Wednesday #10

Hello lovelies!

I trust that you're all feeling fine on this wonderful Wednesday!

I took a few days away from blogging and haven't posted anything since Friday. Fortunately, my only excuse is that my blogging time had been eaten up by time spent with family, friends, and travelling. How beautiful is that!?

On this particular day, "The Taste Tester," my Mom, and I enjoyed a brisk walk through Cooper's Marsh Conservation Area - and it was brisk! It was a fabulous day for a brisk walk - frosty and fresh, but oh so beautiful - the perfect weather for circulation and to help get the system going. The sun started to peek through and I felt fantastic! Fall is in full spring!

When we returned home, I was ready to eat:

Cleansing Breakfast My first Green Juice of the day: celery + spinach + cucumber + arugula + dandelion leaves + 2 apples + lemon + ginger + mint.  I ate a nice Fruit Salad around 11am.  Fresh peaches, pear, banana, blueberries, and goji berries with sprinkles of fresh squeezed lemon and cinnamon. YUM! Lunch was warm broth (please refer to the kitty cat) and a Garden salad with Dill Cheeze from Simply Raw Express, which is OUT OF THIS WORLD!! Dinner was a nice, warm, rich Mighty Minestrone Soup with onions, leeks, carrot, celery, turnip, sweet potatoes, broccoli, kidney beans, and brown rice seasoned to perfection with bay leaves + garlic + fresh basil +marjoram + oregano + thyme + salt and pepper. OH YEAH! Dessert was 1/2 an Acai Berry Vega Sport Endurance bar. "The Taste Tester" also looooves these bars so naturally I split it with him. BEST PROTEIN BAR EVER!!

That's what I ate Wednesday :P

I'm heading back to Jenn's blog RIGHT NOW - I seriously have to make her Sweet Potato Chickpea Burgers . They look fan-freakin-tastic!!


  1. That fruit salad looks amazing! Sometime I fantasize about living off of fruit alone. I think I would be pretty satisfied :)

    1. Nothing wrong with that fantasy :P I'd be in pure bliss with just one apple tree lol #dreamcometrue

  2. You look so happy in all those photos with your family! Glad you enjoyed your time :)

    All of your meals look pretty amazing too!

    1. Thanks Jessie <3 Family time is always the best time in my opinion. #familyfirst :) :)

  3. Happy WIAW! Someday I will have to try a green smoothie, yours looks tasty. :-)

    1. Jenmi!! There are sooooo many amazing green smoothie recipes out there - grab your blender - hand blenders work well too - and give 'er a go!

      I started with the Virgin Green Monster -
      Have no fear! This recipe is fool proof. Even the biggest skeptic will love this one.

      2 cups organic spinach
      1-1 1/4 cups milk (your choice of cow’s milk, soy, hemp, almond, rice, etc)
      1 tablespoon flax (optional)
      1 banana


      Place the ingredients into the blender in the following order: 1) Flax, 2) spinach, 3) banana, 4) milk.

      The reason for this order is so the heavier ingredients weigh down the flax and spinach and keep it from flying up around the blender and sticking to the side. Blend everything on the highest setting for 1 minute or so. Finally, add ice and blend on the ice setting.

      Pour into a large, fancy glass. Sit back, gulp it down, and be prepared to have endless energy!

      *Try it with 1/2 cup fresh/frozen blueberries YUM!!

  4. Spending time with family & friends is priceless (and way more important thank blogging ;) ). It looks like you've had some amazing quality time with them. I love your collage! Beautiful Fall photo too!
    Have a wonderful weekend! xx
