Hey friends! How’s your day going? I hope it has been as awesome as mine :)

You know what time it is…What I Ate Wednesday!

Today started off bright and early with my usual cup of coffee (I drink it black–no sugar or cream) plus vegan overnight oats! If you don’t know about VOO’s, send me an email or find me on twitter–we need to talk.

Pumpkin Gingerbread Vegan Overnight Oat Parfait with Banana Soft Serve and coconut sprinkles. SO GOOD. My parfait attempt was a fail because everything instantly mushed together, but it still tasted amazing. Hopefully someday my parfait skills can be half as good as Angela’s.

I blasted out a quick Bodyrock workout in the morning and by the time lunch rolled around I was super hungry! I met my future brother- and mother-in-law for a fun-filled lunch and had a big California salad. I promise there are actually tons of veggies under all those delicious tortilla strips. It had mixed greens, tomatoes, corn, black beans, avocado, and a little bit of cheese with a spicy dressing. I would normally consider ordering this without the tortilla strips or cheese to be extra healthy, but today I felt like I needed the extra cals :)

Afternoon snack while I did my chores was a big green juice. In the mix: celery, cucumber, ginger, and half a lemon. Tangy and spicy…just the way I like it!

For dinner I made my own version of Mama Pea’s Thai Fried Quinoa and baked tofu with a special new sauce. Keep your eyes peeled for the recipe ;)

I also did a little experimental baking this afternoon, so there were cookies to be munched on for dessert! I did not eat this entire plate of cookies. But I wanted to. This is another recipe I’ll be happy to share with you in the next few days!

So that’s basically everything–of course I drank about two liters of water and I’ll probably have a little tea before bed as well. I will try not to almost burn down the kitchen like I did the last time I made a pot of tea…but you don’t wanna hear about that ;)

Hope you guys join the party and share links to your own WIAW below! Have a great night my friends! xo

  • I do want to know about VOO!! I don’t know how to make them and I’m worried that they wouldn’t fill me up/keep me full like regular oats do. Do they? If they do, I’m sold!

      They’re awesome! They save time in the morning because you can just take them out of the fridge and eat them. Just like any bowl of oatmeal, I think whether they keep you full depends on what you put in them. It’s basically the same ingredients as regular oats though (just more almond milk) so I bet you will end up loving them. I’ll do a post on them soon :)
