What I Ate Wednesday!

AH!  It’s Wednesday!  It’s hard to believe, because this week feels like it’s dragged on.  Luckily, I haven’t relied on coffee to get me through, just under-eye concealer!

As always, thanks to Jen for hosting this community of food lovers each Wednesday 🙂

I’m really into this Strawberry Banana Cashew smoothie lately:

almost 1.5 c. of almond milk

1 banana

strawberries

about 2 palm fulls of raw cashews

1 scoop of Vanilla Sun Warrior Protein

agave nectar to taste

So, I moved to the country side of Delaware in November and well, there aren’t very many coffee shops.  Starbucks isn’t nearby.  I’m still getting used to it and it’s been nearly 6 months.  I was driving through the itty bitty town next door and found a coffee shop!  The Young Bean Coffee Shop is adorable and quaint and absolutely lovely!  I had a great Raspberry Coconut latte:

When in a pinch, I always rely on Trader Joe’s for some good frozen food finds.  This Chana Masala is sooooooooooo good.  There’s been a time or two that I’ve consumed two of these.  It’s great with naan!

I got my act together to make some dinner and had some sweet potato tacos!  Tortillas are always in stock in my home, I grew with my great grandmother keeping us stocked with her homemade tortillas.  Have you ever met a tortilla snob?  I am one.

I grilled some sweet potatoes, made some simple guacamole, added some Trader Joe’s Garlic Chipotle salsa, and a little hot sauce:

One of my favorite burrito combinations is sweet potatoes, black beans, spicy rice, guacamole, and salsa.  Sweet potatoes are amazing with ‘Mexican’ or Tex-Mex food.  It’s a great vegetarian meal and I use sweet potatoes more than tempeh in such meals.

Well, that’s all I ate.  Cinco de Mayo wasn’t as festive because of the overcast weather and closet cleaning.

Did you eat anything good for Cinco de Mayo? Eat anything new or different lately?

  1. That smoothie sounds great! I love cashews but have never put them in a smoothie. MMM:))
    Were the bananas and strawberries frozen?

    Also, I’m heading to Delaware a little later this month to visit my boyfriend’s grandma. It’ll be my first time there, sounds like a beautiful state!

    1. Frozen strawberries & room temp bananas… the room temp bananas & cashews help with the thickness and creaminess! Raw cashews are key!

      DE is beautiful, but I’m a city girl and still adjusting in some areas. Luckily, I’ve always been exposed to the country-side growing up… but living in it is an adjustment! Enjoy your visit!
