Hello everyone! Wow it feels like ages since I’ve written a post! Why you might ask?
I switched over to my very own self-hosted blog! I’m pretty excited about it, even though it didn’t go down without a few hitches. You might notice the title on my blog looks weird as do the post titles. I cannot figure out for the life of my how to change them and it’s driving me crazy! Oh well, I suppose it’s not too big a deal…maybe this will inspire me to create my own header finally ;). If anyone has any advice regarding this please let me know, I’d really appreciate it.
Now before I get into the “What I Ate Wednesday” component of this post, I have some catch-up to do…
- Thank you all so much for your support and submissions to the very first Healthy Vegan Friday! I really enjoyed reading all the submissions and I can’t believe that as I’m typing this, we had 63 link-ups. So great and I can’t wait to watch it grow (hopefully!). Make sure to check back next on Friday for the featured and most popular posts!
- There is still one more day to enter my giveaway for Tropical Traditions coconut oil. Make sure to enter before midnight tonight!
- I participated in 2 foodie swaps last month but haven’t don the reveal posts yet (since I couldn’t touch my blog during the transfer). I’ll get there though, so for the people who sent my packages, don’t worry I haven’t forgotten.
- It’s been over a week since I posted an actual recipe. Eesh. I’ll get on that guys.
Ok, now that that’s out of the way, time for another What I Ate Wednesday. Hosted by the lovely Jenn of Peas and Crayons, this is a weekly blog hop that gives bloggers the opportunity to share our eats.
This month’s theme is “Summer Staples”. I already shared with you my main ones in this WIAW post- smoothies and salads! And yesterday did not disappoint in that respect. I might also sprinkle in some pictures of recipes to come, just to tease you all ;) So here goes!
the usual warm lemon water- did you know it kick starts digestion and wakes up your liver?
Breakfast was a lovely porridge inspired by Katie at Katie Did. This is actually coconut flour! I modified and veganized her recipe for Coconut Flour “Oatmeal”. What resulted was a surprisingly oatmeal-like bowl that was naturally sweet and very filling. I’ll post my recipe for it soon.
Here comes the salad! This one has mixed greens, topped with an Asian-inspired slaw and a Sesame-Edamame Burger. This was a burger creation from the weekend that turned out amazing and actually held together on the grill. Recipe to come.
Update: recipe for my Sesame Edamame Burgers!
I had a slice of this beauty after lunch. Inspired by Annie at An Unrefined Vegan’s Chocolate-Coated Key Lime-Coconut Creme Pie. When she made this pie she challenged me to create a raw version. Well months later, it finally came to fruition. This is my version of a raw chocolate-coated key lime pie! And it is definitely delicious. I can’t wait to share this one with you all!
Snack was an unpictured bowl of cherries, blueberries and raspberries. I think this is another summer staple of mine- berries! They are just so fresh and juicy.
My dinner. Yes, it’s a smoothie. I just crave them in the summer so find myself having to have one at some point. Usually it’s earlier on in the day, but better late than never! This is a cherry green smoothie topped with a bunch of random cereals from the pantry and some sprouted and dehydrated buckwheat groats.
This is a more appropriate dinner photo and while I didn’t eat it yesterday, it is definitely worth sharing! I made one of the best pasta sauces I have ever made! I’ll definitely share it soon. And no, I didn’t edit the photo, it’s corn pasta so it really is that yellow!
To finish off the day I had some Chamomile, Sage and Mint tea and a couple Chimes ginger candies.
Check back tomorrow for one of the recipes!
Which recipe would you guys like to see first?
Have any of you had frustrating experiences with blog design/transferring hosts?
What are YOUR summer staples?
Have a great day everyone!
