WIAW Berry Berry Good

Thanks to my recent trip to the produce place, this week’s What I Ate Wednesday is full of fresh fruits and veggies!

***Before I get to the food, just a quick reminder that today is the LAST day to enter my Gluten Free Tasterie Box giveaway!

Good luck everyone! I will be selecting a winner tomorrow, 3/28.

What I Ate Wednesday GOES GREEN

BREAKFAST:


Raspberry Chobani with blueberries and strawberries.

Adding fruit makes yogurt much more of a “meal” food in my opinion. It fits perfectly in my soup mug. 🙂

SNACK #1

Raisins and sunflower seeds. Salty and sweet!

LUNCH:

I totally stole this idea from Andrea!

Salad in a jar!

IMAG5127I have seen people add dressing to the bottom of their salad bowls when prepping lunch, however when I attempted, everything got too soggy. The bottom of the jar is smaller than a bowl so there’s less salad touching it which = less sog. I put the peppers and carrots closest to the dressing in an effort to soften them up! 

I prepped this the night before and the next day at lunch I just poured it into a bowl and a perfect salad emerged.

                                        I loved that all the toppings stayed at the top! I hate when they all sink to the bottom.


SNACK:

A rainbow snack platter with yellow and red peppers, cucumbers, and carrots and 1 serving of Sabra hummus. Oh, and some blueberries. 🙂

DINNER:

For dinner I made my favorite meal, breakfast for dinner! I don’t know why I don’t do this more often.

IMAG5123I’ll admit, tonight’s dinner had ulterior motives. I had a Tasterie product to test out, Surprisingly Vegan waffle/pancake mix.

IMAG5125To be honest, they were…surprisingly vegan! They certainly didn’t have the same texture and flavor of Aunt Jemima, but with some added fruit they were a decent substitute! The batter was a bit thick so it took a few practice pancakes to get the correct batter-fruit-pan ratio.

Something else that made them so good was this spicy maple syrup we got in Vermont.

IMAG5126This stuff is seriously spicy! We are trying to come up with some creative ways to utilize his as an ingredient but all that comes to mind is chicken and waffles. First we need to buy a waffle maker!

Overall it was a good day of eats! I am so siked to finally have some decent fruit flavors to incorporate into my cooking. Spring and Summer produce just cannot come fast enough! 

Question of the Day:

If you were making a snack platter like mine, what would you fill it with??

    Spicy maple syrup sounds awesome!! I love the sweet and spicy combo.

    Everything looks so delicious! I have been seeing salads in jars a lot more on Pinterest lately..I’m excited to have a chance to try them out! My snack platter would probably look a lot like yours…some yummy fruit, veggies probably with hummus, and maybe some crackers or chips. 🙂

  • Andrea @ Andrea out loud! March 27, 2013, 9:22 am

    Oh yay!! Im glad the salad jar worked for you too! I kow I love how when you dumb it out its like in the perfect order too! And I was actually surprised how crisp everything stayed – it really does work! I brought another one today that I made Sunday as well and it still looks nice and crisp also 🙂

    • savorlifesflavors March 27, 2013, 10:50 pm

      Awesome! Yea I was so excited and surprised it came out as well as it did!

  • Courtney March 27, 2013, 12:49 pm

    Okay, your salad looked awesome. I was a little hestitant when I just saw the jar, but after you poured it out it was perfect! I’m so curious to try it out! Was it “enough” for lunch? Mason jars are small, lol. All your meals look fab, though. And that spicy syrup… interesting! 🙂

    • savorlifesflavors March 27, 2013, 10:55 pm

      The jars may be small but you can really pack a lot in there! I wish I’d had chicken to put in there, but it was plenty for me and I have a hearty appetite.

    Your breakfast screams summer to me! I can’t wait to have my first Greek yogurt again this week. 🙂

    • savorlifesflavors March 27, 2013, 10:58 pm

      I’m hoping that if my diet screams Summer, the weather will start cooperating.

    I love your little snack plates ! I would do tzatziki dip, pita chips, red pepper slices, and some grapes ! Yum !
