What I Ate Wednesdays is a weekly blog party hosted by Peas and Crayons that celebrates food.  The entries mostly focus on healthy plant-based eating, but not exclusively.  Every Wednesday, bloggers are invited to share what they ate one day that week.  Since I’m often asked by omnivores “what the heck does a vegan eat anyway?”, participating in WIAW seemed a fun way to answer that question.

So here’s what I ate last Sunday….

Breakfast: Chocolate banana smoothie (frozen banana, Vega chocolate protein powder and coconut milk), fresh organic fruit and walnuts for breakfast.

Lunch: Cherry chocolate chip banana muffins and raspberries and strawberries from my garden.  The muffins were fresh from the oven and delicious.  I think I had three, plus I couldn’t help eating some muffin batter (no raw eggs!)  The recipe for the muffins is coming soon!

Snack of hummus and crackers.

Dinner at my parents’ house:  I made gardein (wheat and soy protein) marinated in garlic, sesame oil and soy sauce and stir fried.  I also ate potato salad, spinach and pine nut salad and corn on the cob with Earth Balance butter.  Yum!

Look at the fruit salad in a watermelon my mother made for dessert!  Creative and beautiful, just like my mom.

I intentionally ate fairly healthy through the day because I had made a decadent dessert to share and was looking forward to indulging….

Almond fudge rice crispy bars! Click for the recipe for this addictive dessert.  I had two pieces. Okay, maybe three.  I have no willpower when it comes to these chocolatey squares.

Thanks, Jenn at Peas and Crayons, for creating and hosting WIAW!  I look forward to reading everyone’s posts.
