What I Ate Wednesday 4-16-14

Most times I try to protect myself.  You know, if I post something about me drinking something GREEN, I’ll justify it in some way so people don’t make fun or talk about me.  Seriously, that stuff happens over the color GREEN.

But today, I’m celebrating.  I love GREEN drinks.  I won’t justify it. I love them. Yes, I do.

So, here’s my beautiful breakfast:  a Power Green Smoothie.

Green Power Smoothie

Yes, it looks like grass. But it takes like apple & kiwi, with only a hint of grass 😉

The recipe will be here soon 🙂

For lunch, I made something incredible.  I’ve never liked tuna fish, even in my processed food days, but I love the idea of a cold salad.

This is a “mock” tuna fish salad, which means it looks like it & has the flavor of the salad but it actually contains no tuna.  There’s no crazy ingredients.  Not at all!

This was INCREDIBLE.  Even my husband who thinks some of my creations are weird, LOVED it.  AND he’s a tuna lover.

I served it over local buttercrunch lettuce!

For a midday snack, I had Mustard Roasted Chickpeas.  I shared with Beckham, and we devoured the whole thing 🙂

These little boogers are addicting and flavorful.  Next time you want chips or croutons, try these 🙂

Before I explain dinner, I’ve got to explain this breakthrough I had.

If you’ve known me for a while or eaten a meal with me, you know I’ve got stupid food touching issues.  Anyone else like that?

As a child, I literally had the divider plates, not to be cute, but because I could not function if my food touched.  I have no explanation other than I was weird.  I also had a real phobia of people poking me.  Really?

So posting this picture with my side of Kale on  top of my spaghetti is monumental.  Like breaking chains kind of monumental.

I’m praising myself publicly for this one, y’all!

This is homemade marinara sauce (made with local tomatoes) over brown rice spaghetti noodles, topped with sauteed local kale and red onion.  It was tasty and filling!

In honor of the recent Milkshake post, I needed to test it out for dessert one more time to make sure I liked the recipe I posted 😉  So darn it if I didn’t have to have more chocolate 🙂

This is our Chocolate Coconut Peanut Butter Milkshake!

 

Have a blessed day 🙂
