Recent Eats- Winter Break

8 Jan

I know today is Wednesday and that a lot of people do that What I Ate Wednesday thing, but I’ve never really gotten into it. A lot of bloggers (Not ALL bloggers, obviously, but there are some!) post everything that goes into their mouths, and there is a lot of talk over it, surprisingly. People say oh, you eat too much of this, all you eat is this, you don’t eat enough food, and blah blah blah. Needless to say, I don’t want to be a part of that.

I do however love taking pictures of what I eat, and have a phone full of random veggie wrap photos and such, so I’m going to share what I’ve been eating recently with you. No, this is not everything I eat, or all I eat. I also consume a lot of cookies that go unpictured. But vegetables are more colorful to take pictures of!


First up is this veggie filled sandwich. I got some onion and chili tortilla wraps at Trader Joes a while back (You’ll seem them later in this post no doubt) and I ran out. So I bought this whole wheat bread from Krogers. It’s good. But like all store bread it’s filled with junk probably. Anyway, sandwiched between the bread is veganaise (vegan mayonnaise), lettuce, onion, tomato, avocado, cucumber, and a small sprinkling of parmesan cheese. (on a kick ass super old Lion King plate.)


I made Beth’s Mostaccioli bake and it was amazing. Very cheesy. I’m lactose intolerant, but you’d probably never know it from how I eat. Those lactaid pills do help a little bit, but I think my stomach and digestive system have been out of whack for so long I’m just used to it. I really need to get back in the swing of eating dairy super sparingly like I used to though. Regardless, this was delicious. (Also I didn’t add the spinach because I don’t like cooked spinach.)


Huge salad bowl. It kind of looks just like lettuce, but I promise you there are veggies and beans in there. They all seem to settle to the bottom. I should have taken a photo before I mixed it all up.


This was my New Years Eve dinner plate. (Yes I am a looser and have a big special dinner with my family on NYE. But it’s my favorite meal of the year so I’m ok with it.) We do a big appetizers spread. We had veggie dogs in a blanket, deviled eggs, pasta salad, veggie meatballs, Brie and walnut flatbread, veggies, bbq tofu, potato bites, and taco dip. There was a few more things but they wouldn’t all fit on my plate!

I wanted to post the recipe for the potato bites, but I didn’t get any really good photos of them so I don’t know if I will. I may wait till I make them again so I can get some good pictures.


Veggie plate!! Cucumber, tomatoes, and Trader Joe’s romano caesar dressing. (It’s vegetarian!) Also from Trader Joe’s sweet and spicy pecans.


More veggies and pecans and dressing, (I could put that dressing on anything I think) as well as some pickles and a wrap. It’s just filled with more veggies and beans.


Breakfast! Both of the things from this bowl also come from Trader Joes. Quiona steel cut oatmeal, from their frozen section. It’s really convenient, because you just have to microwave it, but it’s a little too much quionoa for me in the morning. On top is a blob of their chocolate cookie butter swirl. (OMFG amazing.- although the chocolatey part feels a little like shortening in your mouth.)


And finally this. I bought this from Kroger, and it is greek yogurt cream cheese. They also sell it in cream cheese bricks. I love it. It actually has less calories (but also less protein I think, which is odd) than regular cream cheese if you’re interested in the stats. But I love how it’s got that greek yogurt tang to it!

I’m sure I have more photos but I don’t want to bombard you with them all at once!! Are there any foods/snacks/meals you’ve been loving lately??

    I never jumped on the WIAW bandwagon, but I do love finding inspiration from other peoples meals!! Lately I cannot get enough of dates and nut butters (either almond or PB.)

    Mmmm that cheesy pasta bake things sounds SO good! I love WIAW because I like seeing what people ate :) I never keep track of every little thing, but I think it’s a good way to get inspiration!
