What I Ate Wednesday: december 11, 2013

Remember that time I posted every Wednesday with a list of foods I was digging that week? And every Wednesday we called it WIAW? Well, here's my attempt at bringing that back.

Truthfully, I had gotten off that bandwagon because I became so busy. Now, I really hate it when people complain that they are so busy. I think it's a stroke of luck that you have so many wonderful things to fill your day with (especially when you're paid to do it). But seriously.. I leave the house before the sun comes up and I get home after the sun goes down. This is fantastic and I mostly love it but it really puts a cramp on my photographing and documenting my eats.

Totally not a big deal, but when you have a WIAW series to tend to, it makes it a bit tricky.

Because I miss posting regularly and because I miss this WIAW series, where you can see into the life of someone that eats salads like it's a day job, I decided I needed to be more dedicated in capturing these moments. So I've made an extra attempt at taking pictures this week. I hope you enjoy!


Peppermint Brownies. Remember these guys?? I'm having a hard time thinking about anything else since I've had them. So good. Unfortunately (or fortunately) I only had a few, I shared the rest with my husband and friends.


Persimmon Salad. 1 head of butter lettuce, chopped, 2-3 fuyu persimmons, sliced, 1/4 avocado, green onions, pomegranate seeds, and dressed with a blended hichaya persimmon (uber ripe). It was so good and I was full and satisfied for hours afterward. Very "801010" as well. 


Noodle Salad. This picture really doesn't do the salad justice. All it is made of is fancy spiralized noodles, cherry tomatoes, green onions, and butter lettuce, dressed with a tahini dressing. So. Good. I originally made the noodles (2 zucchinis) and tossed everything together, but I was starving so I chopped up a head of lettuce to go with it. Best idea ever.


Green juice. If you know me then you know that I love to start my day with green juice. And I usually make it for both my husband and I (he's grown to love the custom as well, YES!). This juice, and most of my green juices, has apples, cucumber, celery, lemon and ginger. Solid greens that taste good. 


Turmeric Dressing. I've been digging my turmeric variation of the tahini dressing and pouring it over anything and everything. It makes any amount of greens a lick-worthy meal and is even good over brown rice or quinoa. I also have been playing with my latest gadget, a spiral slicer (affiliate link*) that makes angel hair sized noodles, and spiralizing anything that fits. It makes the salads even more fun, for me! 





**disclosure: if you purchase anything I link to you via Amazon I make a small percentage out of it at no cost to you! So cool for me, so cool for you!
