Hi green friends, foodie bloggers, and everyone in between! It's Wednesday, so you know what that means..."What I Ate Wednesday" time! This post is once again linked up to the blog, Peas & Crayons and for the month of October we are sharing some Spooky Snacks & Healthy Halloween Treats!
Let's get right into my gluten-free, vegan food for the day...
|5:00 AM: warm water with the juice|
from half a lemon
|5:20 AM Pre-workout snack: Sausage McMuffin|
(aka Food for Life Gluten-Free English Muffin,
with a Sol Veggie Breakfast Patty and some maple syrup)
Workout: 1 hour on the treadmill, running intervals: run 2 minutes, walk 2 minutes...repeat. Simple enough, yet gets the calories burning!
|7:30 AM Breakfast: Chocolate Ice Cream Smoothie |
Raw cacao powder, hemp seeds, chia seeds, spinach,
rice milk, frozen strawberries, and frozen bananas.

Pancakes! What a shocker! ( :
|11:15 3rd AM Snack: 1 organic gala apple|
12:15 PM Lunch:"Tofu Mushroom Stroganoff" a favorite
in this "green" house! Baked tofu with mushrooms, vegan
sour cream, and gluten-free noodles.
|2:15 PM: Green juice: 1/3 of a pineapple, 1/2 a lemon,|
1 apple, 2 stalks of kale, 2 stalks of celery
|2:30 PM 2nd Afternoon Snack: |
1 Almond Dream Strawberry Yogurt
|3:00 PM Afternoon Snack #2: Way Better Simply Sprouted |
Sweet Chili Tortilla Chips (taste like Doritos but healthy)
|5:00 PM Pre-dinner snack:|
"Chocolate Vanilla Smoothie": 1/2 cup vanilla
coconut milk, Chocolate Sun Warrior Rice Protein Powder,
1cup of spinach, 1 1/2 frozen bananas, 3 frozen strawberries
|7:00 PM Dinner: Taco Veggie Mix Burritos (with homemade |
cilantro rice) on a gluten-free tortilla shell.
|The burrito filling is part veggie ("Taco Veggie Mix" from |
The Edible Perspective) and part rice (my homemade rice
that consists of long grain brown rice, fresh cilantro,
lime juice, and sea salt).
|"Veggie Burritos? I love Veggie Burritos!"|
|"Yep, keep it coming Dad!"|
|She loved dipping her chips and sometimes hand into|
the salsa and saying the word salsa,
(or as Avery says it: "sha sha").
|She must be part monkey or something because|
she always likes her little toes to grip on to the table,
just lovely manners right?! ( :
|My sweet salsa girl.|

before dinner in case you're wondering!
