Hi, guys!

It’s What I Ate Wednesday, but we’re going to take a look at what I ate this weekend. Let’s face it, weekend eats are way more exciting than weekday eats. Wouldn’t you agree? I have so much more time to cook “real” meals and eat exactly what I want; instead of grabbing easy convenient food during the week.

The day ALWAYS starts with coffee and my favorite flavor lately is coconut mocha.

Breakfast, Saturday, was Amanda’s Cookie Dough Breakfast Bake. The pictures do not do this justice…. it was still a little dim when I had breakfast and I was super hungry. I adapted the recipe just a little because I didn’t have chocolate chips. Instead, I added a chopped dried fig. I seriously don’t know how chocolate chips could have made this bake any tastier. Dried figs are my jam! Dip one into almond butter and you’ll see what I mean!

My breakfast on Sunday, Monday and Tuesday just happened to be these Banana Oatmeal Muffins. If you’re a banana and oatmeal fan; you must try these. I love mine mashed up with almond milk, banana slices and peanut butter!

Lunch, Saturday, was this huge smoothie bowl. It is a recipe that I put together for a sponsored post, I’ll be sharing later this month. I’ve been craving another one like crazy! It was so refreshing with tons of different Summer flavors.

Lunch on Sunday was an egg avocado salad served wrap-style. I’ll be posting this recipe very soon. It was just what I needed to use up the rest of the boiled Easter eggs.

This past weekend, snacks were awesome; thanks to a very generous shipment from the people at Van’s! Please tell me you’re a regular Van’s customer! There are so many great things about this company; the market leader in gluten-free and allergy-friendly, natural and organic breakfast and snack foods.

Van's Natural Food Snacks

My whole family has been enjoying Van’s snacks. The kiddos were especially fans of the chips. And why wouldn’t they be? Both the Nacho Cheese and BBQ chips are bursting with flavor and made with gluten-free oats, brown rice, millet, quinoa and amaranth. These guilt-free treats keep it real, containing no high fructose corn syrup, artificial ingredients, hydrogenated oils or GMO oils. My husband and I give the Fire-Roasted Veggie Crackers 5 stars. They were the perfect pair to my Sun-Dried Tomato Hummus.

The PB&J Bars that you see above are so scrumptious and the perfect after-school snack for the kids… and me. And if you want a gluten-free version of cheese-it crossed with a wheat thin; then you need to try the above crackers, Van’s Say Cheese! Crackers.

I talked about my Sunday dinner in this post. It was so delicious I’m looking forward to recreating it soon. In fact, Brad just mentioned yesterday; that broccoli stuff sure was good, you need to make that again soon and this time make more. 😉

My dessert kick, lately, has been either cottage cheese or Greek yogurt with fruit. Trying to up that protein!

Something to think about….

Are your weekend meals usually more interesting than weekday meals?

What deliciousness have you been enjoying?

Do you usually have dessert after dinner or a before-bed snack?

Have a great one and stay tuned for a Van product giveaway…. coming soon!
