WIAW: October 31, 2012 + Happy World Vegan Day!

It is time for the final edition of “What I Ate Wednesday” for the month of October.  P.s. I cannot believe that it is November already…time flies!















Breakfast on Wednesday consisted of scrambled egg whites topped with green salsa, fresh-cut cantaloupe, and one slice of toasted Trader Joe’s sprouted 7-grain bread topped with natural peanut butter, pumpkin butter, and a dash of cinnamon.  If you have not tried pumpkin butter, let me introduce you to this:








Trader Joe’s Pumpkin Butter.  It is so stinkin’ good and totally in the spirit for this season!

I ate my traditional go-to mid-morning snack: a banana.









Lunch consisted of a “BLT” made with 100% whole wheat toast, MorningStar Farms veggie “bacon” strips, tomatoes, lettuce, and dijon mustard.  The “bacon” looks odd, yes, but it is so crispy and delicious.  I never even liked BLT sandwiches when I ate meat, but I am loving them now!  I also had a serving of low-fat cottage cheese on the side.









Dinner was a big bowl full of Vegetarian Tortilla Soup (the recipe can be found on my previous post!) topped with shredded Velveeta queso blanco cheese and Hy-Vee Sante Fe tortilla strips.  So warm, spicy, and delicious!








On the side I had a bowl of steamed cauliflower and broccoli seasoned with sea salt and Trader Joe’s 21 Seasoning Salute.  I am really loving steamed vegetables lately.


My snacks throughout the afternoon and evening consisted of:

1 Fuji apple
1 Kashi peanut peanut butter bar
1 light vanilla Greek yogurt with fresh strawberries
Lentil chips- a mixture of Jalapeno and Dill & Sour Cream

It was a tasty day of eats!

On a side note, today is November 1st…aka World Vegan Day.  I will be celebrating by eating vegan today.  I challenge you to incorporate a vegan day into your diet sometime this week.

Lastly, I leave for Arizona this evening to reunite with several of my college friends…could be trouble! ;) You can catch me back on the blog sometime early next week.  Have a fabulous weekend!
