I first heard about What I Ate Wednesday from Marlene. I thought it would be fun to participate so on Monday I toted my camera to work to document all my eats. If you want to play too check out Peas and Crayons for all the details!
For breakfast I had a bowl of overnight oats with chia seeds, pumpkin, craisins, raisins, a bit of almond butter and some sliced banana. Hot Chocolate Truffle tea on the side.
Before lunch a coffee craving hit, so I ran for an eggnog latte. My favourite coffee drink at this time of year!
Lunch was leftover quinoa and chickpea salad with roasted vegetables. You can definitely tell that the beets are exerting their pink influence on the chick peas.
Afternoon snack! A couple of Girl Guide think mint cookies along with some leftover melon and a yoghurt.
Dinner was leftover Red Lentil Soup with Lemon courtesy of 101 Cookbooks. In leftover stage it was less soup-like but still very delicious. I served it over brown rice with spinach and Greek yoghurt on the side. Plus a piece of whole grain toast with goat cheese slathered on it.
Happy Wednesday everyone!
That oatmeal looks good and I don’t even like oatmeal!!

I love this idea. Looks like everything was healthy and tasty!
I had qunioa salad for lunch yesterday too! hehe!
I really like lentil soup and never make it…I should try your recipe.
Nice photos. I’m usually much more interested in eating than I am in looking at my food.
hmmm, that was my disqus ID, why isn’t a link? I need to do some more looking.

Adjustments have been made. Sorry to take up space. Here’s a joke. Why didn’t the bike want to do the IM workout? It was too tired.

Your food looks delicious, especially the thin mint cookies!;)
What…no beer and beaver for lunch?? According to the book you sent me that’s what you Canadians eat 🙂 Anyways thank you for the gift and good luck with your training in 2012!!
