What I Ate Wednesday #16

Posted by Sinfully Nutritious

 Welcome to another addition of What I Ate Wednesday.  The holiday had me a little off when it came to what day of the week it was!

Yesterday, I actually missed my breakfast pics, but, it was nothing exciting, after a weekend of bbq food, I had a simple protein shake and 1/2 of a whole wheat English Muffin with a cup of coffee.

Here is a recycled picture of one of my favorite protein shakes. 


Lunch was also pretty simple.  Leftovers. Over the weekend, I made tons of these awesome vegetable skewers with a couple of pieces of Gardein Beefless tips mixed in.  I had enough to make both Andy and I lunch from the leftovers, served on a bed of steamed brown rice.  I prefer them fresh off the grill, but as hot and humid as it was yesterday, I was glad not to have to be in front of the grill.


I made these with par-baked quartered potatoes, yellow and green zucchini, beefless tips, mushrooms, onions, peppers, and a cherry tomato on the end! I made a quick basting marinade out a little bit of olive oil, water, lemon juice, vegan Worcestershire sauce, and some Mrs. Dash steak seasoning.  I cooked them on the grill about 10 minutes, flipped another 10 minutes, until they were cooked through. After being in the refrigerator for two days, I reheated them on the stovetop in a griddle pan.

After lunch, I had another coffee, did some running around, worked in my office and then prepared an early dinner before Andy had to run to a game.

Dinner was BBQ Chik’n & Slaw Wraps.  I made a quick slaw from a 1/2 bag of slaw mix, 1/2 bag of shredded red cabbage, 1 small red onion thinly sliced, 1 large carrot grated, and slaw dressing.  My dressing was Vegan mayo, Dijon mustard, apple cider vinegar, agave nectar, celery seed, sea salt and pepper.  I let the slaw sit in the fridge for an hour before making my wraps.  I used carb balance whole wheat tortillas as my base.  Then added slaw and then pieces of Gardein Chick’n coated with a sweet and spicy bbq sauce on top.  I rolled them and served with some baked sea salt and vinegar chips.

An hour after dinner I had a decaf coffee and a small piece of a black bean brownie.

I was still hungry at 8pm, and although, I detest eating at night, I caved and had a small bowl of Uncle Sam’s cereal in coconut milk.

So, there you have it, what I ate Tuesday on Wednesday.  I look forward to posting lots of my favorite summer meals whether at home, or on the go.  Only two and a half weeks of school left, yay!  I can’t wait until Mya is home for the summer and the fun can begin. Hopefully I can blog from the campground or by the poolside, where I hope to be spending a great deal of summer.

Do you have any great summer plans?

Have a great Wednesday!

  2. Everything looks so delicious! Those wraps look amazing. I like your idea of blogging from the campground or the pool. I am thinking of blogging from Italy, but I'm not sure yet. The kids might still be a bit young for that trip!

    1. I love cookin' at the campground. Camping in our small rv is my favorite summer activity. I hope you blog from Italy, that is my dream destination. Oh and the food...

  3. The kabobs looks so tasty and fresh! They are one of my favorite things to make during the summer!

    1. They take a bit of time to put together, but they are worth the effort.

  4. Hi Maria, I nominated you for a Food Stories Award!
