What I Ate Wednesday

I’m in the middle of a Game of Thrones session here so I’m literally going to just list what I had to eat today – hope you don’t mind!


Oatmeal made with water, hemp milk and unsweetened apple sauce. Topped with chopped pecans, flaxseed meal, omega seed mix, amaranth pops, toasted desiccated coconut and fresh blueberries. I poured over a little rice milk to finish and a squidge (technical term!) of vegan sweetener.

It was delicious.

We also had a freshly brewed cup of black tea with a splash of soya milk.


Baked potato (you can find my recipe for the perfect baked potato here) topped with lemon and coriander hummus, served with a huge salad consisting of little gem lettuce, peeled and sliced cucumber, grated carrot, spring onion and home made dressing.

So good

Mid Afternoon Snack

Medjool Date

Late Afternoon Snack

Rice cake spread with crunchy peanut butter and no added sugar strawberry jam plus another cup of black tea, this time served with a splash of oat milk.


‘Sausage’ Risotto made with arborio rice, onion, a lot of garlic, peas, asparagus, spinach and sliced vegan sausage. I also herbed it up with oregano, thyme and fresh flat leaf parsley and stirred in a decent amount of nutritional yeast(loves it!). Oh, and lots and lots of cracked black pepper. Lots of it. And then some more.

OMG, this was beyond tasty, we couldn’t get enough (om nom nom) – it was sooooo damned delicious. Will absolutely, without a shadow of a doubt, be making this again.

We also treated ourselves to a Blue Moon. We don’t normally drink mid week but tonight I just felt like one and it was so nice and refreshing – the sliced orange is crucial!

Those were my eats:) Happy WIAW everybody, I look forward to reading all your posts xxx

    wishing I had some blue moon right about now …. I used to make risotto all the time in my pre-vegan days, I’ll have to give it a try with nutritional yeast now

    Looks healthy! I love snacking with dates too πŸ™‚
    I always buy them to make my husband his favorite raw brownies and always end up eating half the package before it’s time to make the brownies :))) He is not very happy about it…

    Your food pictures always look so pretty!

    Thanks for the amaranth pops link by the way, I have ordered some πŸ™‚

    What dressing do you use on your salad?

    @marina – yes, I love blue moon, it’s one of my favourite beers and reminds me of being in Chicago:)

    @Nadia – dates rule! So do raw brownies – yummers:) It was a fairly healthy day although I really want to incorporate more raw food into my diet.

    @Jen – thanks, glad you like the pics:) No worries, let me know how you like the amaranth pops when they arrive! The dressing I use most is 1 heaped tsp dijon mustard, 1 1/2 tsp cider vinegar, juice of 1/2 lemon, 1 tbsp olive oil, 1 tsp vegan sweetener, salt and pepper – I also added a tablespoon of finely chopped flat leaf parsley but I don’t always do this. Shake it up in a jam jar until it emulsifies and pour over salad. Hope that helps!

    The oatmeal and risotto look absolutely delicious. I love that you put so many healthy ingredients in your oatmeal. I’m pretty boring when it comes to breakfast. Please blog about the risotto pretty please. :)) I’d love the recipe! Thanks.

      Thanks! Yeah, that risotto was awesome – my Hubbie got a lot of comments when he took the leftovers to work. I love it when that happens:)

    Hmmm….I’m wondering how come I never get any reply to my comments. So strange.

  9. peasoupeats says:

    Hey there, thanks so much for leaving a comment, I really appreciate it – so very sorry I forgot to reply! I would never want anyone to think it was deliberate – not the case, it was just an honest error. Apologies if you were offended, I try my best to reply to every comment. Many thanks for reading and please do come back! Best, Aine:)
