My lovely friend Jenn over at Peas and Crayons has been doing a weekly installment entitled “What I Ate Wednesday,” where she details all her meals for an entire day and posts it on Wednesday, and she invited us all to participate.
So without further ado, I present all of my eats for yesterday.
Two pieces of brown rice toast topped with almond butter, cran apple butter, and half a sliced banana. I had an unpictured cup of coffee with So Delicious coconut milk cream and vanilla stevia drops.
Pizza on an Udi’s ready-made crust with more TJ’s red pepper sauce, nutritional yeast, spinach, and sliced baby bellas. I also ate a handful’s worth of unpictured leftover brussels sprouts while I was waiting for my pizza to bake.
And an apple.
Brown rice cake with peanut butter and the other half of the banana.
A prep-time snack of a few small strips of tuna jerky, while I got ready to make my own sushi for the first time!
My prepping station – bamboo rolling mat wrapped in plastic wrap, nori sheets, sliced avocado, a can of kippers (smoked herring), brown sushi rice, and a bowl of water for dipping my fingers into to prevent the rice from sticking to me.
I spread the sushi rice on a sheet of nori.
Then I put on my avocado and kippers and rolled it up. I made two rolls, although I didn’t have quite enough rice for the second one, and it fell apart just a bit.
I was so proud of myself, and this combo was actually pretty righteous. The kippers were actually very reminiscent of unagi in flavor and texture to me! Now that I know I can make rolls, I really want to go to the fish market and buy some sushi grade fish!
I had a small piece of Dove dark chocolate for dessert.
Late Night Snack
I ended up having to work pretty late last night, so I fueled my typing with three TJ’s cinnamon graham crackers dipped straight into the Valencia PB jar.
(Yes, I did eat nut butter three times in one day. It keeps me full for long stretches and those healthy fats keep my hair shiny and beautiful. I ain’t skurred.)
I drank a ton of water throughout the day, and I also took my daily vitamins (B, C, D, fish oil, calcium, and a probiotic) after breakfast.
And that’s a day of my eats! What’s the best thing you ate yesterday?
