What I Ate Wednesday: Snacks

YUM.

Thanks to Jenn for hosting and for June’s theme!

Fact: Some of my friends became my friend because they’d notice my snacks and start talking to me or because I would offer some of my snack to them.

Now that it’s warmer outside, I rather eat cereal or overnight oats instead of toast, pancakes or anything that’s warm.  My local Trader Joe’s had a great deal on organic blueberries and they have been a nice addition to my oats:

(rolled oats, almond milk, splash of vanilla, agave nectar, blueberries)

Instead of consuming loads of coffee this week, I’ve reclaimed the extra 10 minutes I was using to apply more concealer to just make a smoothie for when I get to work:

(coconut milk, strawberries, raspberries, frozen banana, splash of vanilla, Vanilla Raw SunWarrior Protein Powder, agave nectar for taste)

Dinner:

(Field Roast hot dog, guacamole, black bean dip and hot sauce)

These are the best:

I loooooove these.  I also love that when I’m not having a lazy Saturday morning I can easily recreat them in my kitchen.  It’s great that you can easily get your hands on all the ingredients.  You can also improve the list of ingredients too! (that’s a future post!)

During my work week I tend to only have 3 basic meals and a smoothie.  I used to have fresh fruit as a snack between lunch and dinner… but then I got really busy and completely ignored the once daily snack.  I’ve been thinking about how  I need to bring that back.  My weekend snacking is normally pita chips & salsa or whatever fresh fruit I have lying around.  I should start snacking on more veggies…

Oh, and those blueberries are great with a scoop of SO Delicious Vanilla Bean coconut ice cream as a late night snack 🙂

Do you prefer coconut milk ice cream or almond milk ice cream?

    1. They’re available at my local farmer’s market and every now and again I’ll buy a handful to keep at work. But I enjoy the challenge of trying to recreate them at home! Sometimes I’ve been successful and other times I’ve ended up with ‘fancy granola’!

  1. I haven’t had a smoothie in quite some time. I need to bust out my blender and make one though it is supposed to be 90 degrees this weekend! Perfect smoothie weather that’s for sure.
