Hello!! Welcome back to another What I Ate Wednesday!
Hope you guys are having a great week!
First things first! Water, water water, before anything else! I always make sure to drink 24 ounces (3 cups) of filtered water (sometimes with 1/2 lemon) every single morning. I use this mason jar all day every day because its huge and lets me measure out my water intake. Water helps to rehydrate the body after a long night?s rest when we get dehydrated and is so essential to wake up the body. It starts the day off on a healthy note, and is SO great for skin too!
Then I neeeed my coffee fix, with my fave non-dairy creamer ? the Silk Almond Vanilla Flavored Creamer (check out my superfood coffee elixir recipe too!). I was pretty hungry as soon as I woke up, so I made a yogurt breakfast bowl with dairy-free forager project “cashewgurt” in blueberry, with coconut granola and lots of blueberries! So yummy and different from my usual smoothie or oatmeal.
A few hours later, I snacked on a fuji apple plus two no-bake peanut butter energy balls (made with de-fatted PB Fit powder!). Love these little snack gems.
Lunch was the most gorgeous glow bowl with whatever I had in the fridge! Filled with spring mix greens and cucumber, plus a baked sweet potato with crumbled tempeh, avocado and hemp hearts, drizzled with the Simple Girl Citrus Ginger dressing. I love the Simple Girl dressings (and sauces too!) because they’re oil-free and the ingredients are on point!!! Check out the label below.
This bowl was SO GOOD and so filling. Kept me energized for the rest of the day, until my workout.
Snacked on half of a Phive Bar before hitting the gym.. was yummy, but didn’t feel like eating the whole thing I guess? Did a leg workout with lots of squats, lunges and deadlifts!
Then came home and made a protein shake before dinner. The Vega Protein and Greens (berry or coconut almond flavor) is my absolute FAVE vegan protein powder, because of the ingredients and added greens, but also for the taste and super affordable price. The Berry or Coconut Almond flavors don’t taste earthy or “green” at all and I can drink them plain, mixed with water. I’ve been skeptical of protein powder in the past, but have been loving it throughout this past year as I’ve been working out A LOT and need something easy to supplement with. It really does make me feel more balanced!
Dinner was leftovers of the Crunchy Thai Noodle Salad that I posted yesterday, with that spicy almond butter dressing! Can’t get enough of this salad, you MUST try it! Ate that while watching The Affair 🙂
Hope you enjoyed this What I Ate Wednesday!

Shannon! I miss you (& blogging)! After reading your what I ate’s, I feel like we are seriously the same person, haha. Oh – and I was going to reach out to you last week and tell you that I saw someone post your black bean soup recipe in a facebook group that I am in 🙂 Anyways, sorry for the random comment.
