Happy “What I Ate Wednesday” to you! Today’s the day that bloggers share a day’s worth of food in photos and mine is a healthy, vegan version. I started out with a breakfast of Chocolate Pear Smoothie with some dehydrated buckwheat groats for crunch:
It’s been really warm here in California this week. While usually our mornings along the coast are foggy, yesterday I got to enjoy the view of the trees:
Lunch included a salad with avocado, hummus, red onion, and asparagus with a simple squeeze of lime for flavor:
Plus a dessert of an apple and some of my Dessert Hummus. I was such the bad food blogger and forgot to take a new picture, but it looked very much like this:
I was recently sent a Vega One Starter Kit to sample for a giveaway and added it to my dessert hummus recipe:
The ingredients for my treat include a blend of adzuki beans, carob, tahini, almond butter, currants, raisins, the beans of a vanilla pod, almond milk, and a packet of the Vega One (I used the vanilla-flavored one):
I know protein powder supplements aren’t for everyone, but if it’s included in your diet, then I recommend checking this one out:
You get to try the three different flavors in the Starter Kit:
The kinds people at Vega have offered to send three readers each their own Starter Kit, so please use the link below to enter. You must be at least 18 years of age and have an address in the U.S. or Canada to enter:
Dinner was a bit of a flop because I tried to make my Baked Chickpea Burgers with tofu instead of beans. I’m not sure what went wrong, but they were really mushy instead of being firm. I think there was just too much moisture in this version, so I need to re-work this recipe before sharing:
The flavor of the burgers was still yummy, but they are arguably among the ugliest food I’ve ever made:
My dinner plate included the burger, lettuce, an heirloom persimmon tomato from the farmers’ market, water-sauteed onions, and a dill pickle also from the market:
That’s it! I hope you enjoyed this photo food journal and good luck to everyone who enters the giveaway. See you again tomorrow when I have a new recipe to share that is much prettier to look at than my ugly burgers.
