What’s the best part of summer? The berries!
Okay, well, I”m sure there’s many other things as well, but as a foodie, I’m all about the berries, and today’s What I Ate Wednesday is a testament to that. Not part of the WIAW trend yet? Head over to Peas & Crayons to see what it’s all about! This week’s eats come from yesterday…
Breakfast: (You saw this yesterday!) 1/2 c. oats, 1 Tbsp. chia seeds, unsweetened vanilla almond milk, 1/3 scoop vanilla protein powder, natural crunchy PB, strawberries and blueberries
Morning snack: Pink lady apple
Lunch: 1/4 c. quinoa with chicken and bean crockpot “chili” + baby carrots on the side
Afternoon snack: 3 oz. plain greek yogurt + 3 oz. black cherry CHO with puffed wheat and oats mixed in (I am loving these mason jars for my yogurt!)
And, then came dinner…
I was planning on photographing a yummy pasta dish that came together fairly quickly yesterday, but it just so happened that my side dish stole the show. I mean, if you put this together, would you be able to resist photographing this plate of summery, clean eating deliciousness?
Fresh spinach, sweet strawberries, crunchy walnuts, a dusting of feta…
I’d love to share the “recipe” per say, but does anyone really measure salad ingredients? Here’s what was in the mix:
- 2 handfuls spinach
- Chopped strawberries
- Small handful of walnuts
- Sprinkle of feta
- Trader Joe’s fat-free balsamic vinaigrette dressing
