Welcome to the party, friends…that is “the What I Ate Wednesday Tuesday party”! Tuesday actually flew by for me. After my two morning meetings, it was time for lunch and the rest of the afternoon went by in a flash. This is good and bad….work goes by really fast, but then I don’t feel like I got everything completed that I needed to. Anyway….it’s Wednesday, so let’s get on with it!

Head on over to Jenn’s site at peasandcrayons.com to really get your party on! As always, thanks Jenn for hosting!

Breakfast is always my favorite meal and today was no exception. Donut House coffee courtesy of Green Mountain Coffee Company and a spin-off of my Paleo Pumpkin Pancake….the new Paleo Flax Pumpkin Pancake. I love how well this pancake cooks and there is no falling apart when I go to flip it. I love the new recipe so much, I’m posting it on my recipage, if you’d like a printable version, head on over to the link.


Of course, I enjoyed another cup of Donut House on my way to work.

I had to travel to another school for my second meeting and I enjoyed my favorite Larabar on the way. If you’ve never given Larabars a try, you definitely should. They tast wonderful and they have very ingredients, all of which are natural. For example, the coconut creme bar contains only dates, unsweetened coconut, almonds, cashews, and extra virgin coconut oil. I really need to try recreating these at home!


Lunch was leftover taco stuff from Monday night. I had lean ground beef, Chobani Greek yogurt, black olives, black refried beans, guacamole, and tomatoes on a flat-out. I know it’s not too pretty, but it sure was tasty!


And for dessert…. a juicy clementine. {recycled photo}


After school, Madelyn had horse riding lessons and I had my usual snack of apple slices and almond butter. I sat outside and watched because the weather was gorgeous here in Texas today and is supposed to be beautiful all week. This was my view today….thought you’d probably rather see that than my countless pictures of apple slices. 😉 {Madelyn’s in the purple.}


And getting ready to ride….

Next, we made our way to gymnastics. We brought food from home today…I had the last of the leftover crockpot lasagna with a salad. Nothing too exciting, but it did the trick. Sorry about the horrible lighting.


I topped my salad with this honey mustard from Annie’s and I have to say, I’m pretty happy with it. It’s not a thick honey mustard {which I prefer}, but it’s really tasty with just the right amount of sweetness.


Dessert was greatness!! My sample pack from Artisana came in the mail, so when I got home from gymnastics, I had to try one of the packets.


On top of Trader Joe’s Fat Free Greek Frozen Yogurt, I had crumbled Beet Paleo Brownie, raspberries, and Artisana’s new Berry Antioxidant nutbutter. It all went together perfectly and I’m glad that was the last of the frozen yogurt or I definitely would have had to go back for seconds. 😉 Speaking of the Beet Paleo Brownie….I’m not so sure it’s blog worthy yet. It’s wonderful with ice cream, yogurt or nutbutter, but just the brownie is a bit dry….I’m sure due to the coconut flour.


Well, it’s 9:30, so I better get off here and get ready for bed. Hope everyone’s Wednesday is lovely!

Something to think about…..

What is something that you’ve eaten lately that was over the top delicious?

Have you tried Artisana’s new flavors? If so, what did you think?

How about any of Annie’s dressing? What do you think?

Ever rode a horse?

See ya!!
