Wednesday morning has arrived again! Funny how quickly it comes up with a short week. Note = not a complaint by any means.
I devoured some pretty tasty eats yesterday. I could even say my meals yesterday rivaled the ice cream, cheesecake bars, and healthified /proteinified twice baked potatoes from this weekend. I know I had quite the full, satisfied belly all day long. Also not a complaint by any means. Time to share the delectable feasting with you all for another edition of What I Ate Wednesday!
I warned you that my meals this week would inevitably include two things – berries and watermelon. So it should come as no surprise that my breakfast looked the exact same. And that I don’t feel the need to take a picture of said exact same breakfast two days in a row…so behold the recycled photo!
I have no shame in recycling blog photos when necessary. Besides…it’s so pretty. Plus, I can only have so much creative energy when it comes to food. And I had creative juices going for lunch.
A plate chock full of color! We have quite the load of produce to work through this week so I piled up the watermelon, grapes, carrots, and cucumber, then got to work on the star of the show. English muffin pizza!
We had some fire roasted diced tomatoes for another recipe that I needed to use. What better way than to make pizza sauce for English muffin pizzas, right? Maybe not super original, but definitely super delicious!
I blended up about 1/4 cup of the fire roasted diced tomatoes with an immersion blender while my English muffins got started toasting in a toaster oven. I then topped both muffin halves with the sauce, oregano, red pepper flakes, and shredded cheese. I toasted them a few minutes more until the cheese got nice and melted. Pizza for lunch = win!
When snack time rolled around I wasn’t as hungry as normal and only wanted more fruit. I shall seriously miss the plethora of fruit when summer comes to pass. But let’s just pretend that will never happen, mmmkay?
I crafted together a yogurt bowl to reflect my love of summer. Pineapple Chobani yogurt. Fresh mango chunks. Bites of banana. A splash of light coconut milk. A sprinkling of Cheerios.
The tropics in a bowl with such a perfect blend of textures and flavors.
After so much delicious food I probably could have stopped there for the day, had dry toast for dinner, and still gone to bed with a happy belly. But where’s the fun in that?
Instead, I went big with one of the best recipes I have stumbled across in blog land recently. “Best” namely because its so easy. And Mama Pea only has her own cookbook and all. I kind of adore her. Big hugs, Sarah! The peanut noodle bowl was a huge hit!
I adapted it only the slightest bit – zucchini instead of bell pepper, no cilantro, udon instead of rice noodles – so please give her recipe a look and get in on the tasty action!
And that’s where we end – with me fully intending to eat the exact same things all day today. Delicious, filling, nutritious, and fun? If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it!
