What I Ate Wednesday – April 2 2014

What I Ate Wednesday

What I Ate Last Monday

I’m feeling like a good old fashioned ramble is in order today, so I’m just gonna run with it!
Breakfast was bakery-fresh onion-rye toast with cream cheese and a cup of coffee with So Delicious coconut milk creamer — their French Vanilla is my favorite!  Actually, I’m totally overdue for a So Delish giveaway — Stay tuned for one!
My mid-morning snack was a strawberry Siggi’s yogurt. Well, most of it. The chickpea puppy dog pouted her way into snagging a few spoonfuls even though she has her own yogurt; I’m a sucker for her pouty lip!
Lunch was a broccoli slaw smorgasboard! Harris Teeter [my local grocery store] makes bagged blends that are to die for!  This one had loads of veggies with sunflower seeds and cranberries and a tangy dressing.  I buy a bag every few weeks and usually scarf the whole thing in a sitting.  It’s that good!
Dinner was half of a delicious rainbow roll topped with spicy mayo + wasabi sauce and a smattering of green onion. Paul snagged the other half. We also had homemade carnitas that we were so preoccupied scarfing straight from the crock-pot that I failed to take a photo! I made Paul promise to write up his recipe for anyone that is interested, though. He’s becoming quite the whirlwind in the kitchen! Go P!
grocery store sushi done right
I still can’t get over the  absolute amazingness that is my grocery store’s sushi counter. They truly are artists!  I’m positively overdue to make another sushipalooza at home but until then, this will absolutely do! Thank goodness the chickpea is still too young to eat sushi; it’s bad enough I have to share with Paul as it is! The nerve!
I always call dibs on any piece with salmon on it!  It’s my favorite!

drooling over your sushi picture!!! definitely eating sushi the first week baby itz is born!!


I’m excited for this hinted at So Delicious giveaway 🙂


As usual, your food pictures are fantastic! You make everything look so yummy! I posted about the best sashimi I’ve ever had this week. I’m usually more of a sushi eater, but I thought at Nobu I’d give it a try. LOVED it! Now I don’t think the grocery store will live up to Nobu. 🙁


I love Siggys! Such a good yogurt brand.


SO JEALOUS. when I lived in va beach, the sushi chef would make me a free roll while I contemplated which roll I would take home, that’s how often I got it. haha wahhhhhh I miss harris teeterrrrr.

Jordan @ The Blonde Vegan

Alison @ DailyMovesAndGrooves

I always love to call dibs on the salmon ones too. They’re just the best!

Julianna @ Julianna Bananna

mmm that salad looks amazing! & sushi is slowly growing on me, i’m not a huge fan of raw fish but i looove the vegetarian rolls!

Tess @ Tips on Healthy Living

I have to admit, I can’t understand what people like about sushi, but this does look pretty good. I’ve never tried Siggys, where do you typically buy it?

Jenn @ Peas and Crayons

I think it’s a texture thing? I love raw sashimi and paired with the fluffy rice and the salty nori and the crunch of veggies… I’m just hooked! Siggi’s is at Fresh Market, Whole Foods, Harris Teeter and prob a bunch of other stores! I saw a go-gurt version at target yesterday! It’s super tart and has very low sugar and is super duper thick. My seven month old is hooked on it!

Yay!!!!!!! I’m so glad! Thanks Candice! =)

Jenn @ Peas and Crayons

Hope you adore it, Justina! xo

Tess @ Tips on Healthy Living

Sounds delicious, thanks! I will have to try some now. Yes, it’s definitely a texture thing when it comes to sushi. But I will have to try it with some of that added crunch. I bet that will help! 🙂


This was delish! I subbed the pinto beans for pearl barley because I am on a barley kick and it was super yummy! I will definitely be making this all winter long 🙂 Thanks for the recipe!
