{What I Ate Wednesday} 11/13/13

Hi!!!! Happy Wednesday!! Is it just me or is everyone decorating earlier this year for Christmas?? Now it is all I can think about....I am so ready to put my Christmas tree up!! Although preventing my 22 month old from destroying it on a daily basis is something I am NOT looking forward to!! Hopefully he won't mess with it!! HA HA HA HA! Yeah right!

I am actually really proud of myself....I am been branching out and switching up my meals! I am a creature of habit so this isn't easy for me!! 

Breakfast: Quinoa Porridge: No steel cut oatmeal this week....I thought I would change it up a little. I just mix cooked quinoa with some almond milk and half of mashed banana. Heat it on the stove until the milk is absorbed....add some cinnamon and toppings! Easy....right? I added raisins and walnuts.

Snack: Green Monster Smoothie: My goal is to add more green smoothies into my life. I don't eat enough veggies so this is a really easy way to sneak them into my diet.

Lunch: Savory Stuffed Sweet Potato: My new favorite lunch! I just microwave a sweet potato until soft and top it with whatever is in my fridge! HA! This one was topped with leftover Crock Pot pork, guacamole and shredded cheese. Delish!!!

Snack: Apple and Almond Butter: This time I chopped up my Gala apple, sprinkled some cinnamon on top and microwaved it for 1 minute or so. Then I drizzled almond butter on top! I drank some peppermint tea on the side! It was actually starting to snow outside at this point so I needed something warm! Let me just tell you....snow in Charlotte, NC is rare so we were all ecstatic!

Dinner: Sweet Potato Shepherds Pie: I loved this. My kids were not huge fans but the hubby and I devoured it. I used organic ground chicken instead of turkey and omitted the celery (not a celery fan) and I thought this recipe was a keeper!

Dessert: 2 squares of dark chocolate: After dealing with my 4 year old falling down my stairs and cleaning my 22 month old's crayon masterpiece off my wall...I deserved this!

So tell me.....

Favorite ingredients in Green Smoothie??

Favorite warm snack??

Least favorite veggie??


  1. You posted this stuffed sweet potato and Jen did chili stuffed sweet potato- YUM!
    I'm definitely doing that this week :)

  2. I love blueberries, honey and greek yogurt in my green smoothies (and spinach of course!)

  3. I need to start doing that with sweet potatoes! I love them and typically have some cubed and roasted in the fridge but topped with savory foods sounds for lunch sounds perfect!
