A day of really good eats!

Don’t you just love when you have those days that everything you eat is extra delicious? I had one of those days yesterday! I had new foods for pretty much every meal of the day and they were all so great.

It’s What I Ate Wednesday, so I’m of course linking up with Jenn at Peas and Crayons to bring you all of the goodness!

For breakfast I had quinoa. I’ve eaten quinoa for breakfast before, but it’s not a normal breakfast for me. This recipe is a new one and it’s especially good. I came up with it for a guest post that will be up in May. I’ll be sure and let you know, when it’s up. I topped my breakfast quinoa with currants, sliced bananas, almond butter and a splash of almond milk. I actually do already have a breakfast quinoa recipe on the blog, if you’re interested in checking it out.

Lunch was also a brand new recipe. I was really surprised by how yummy it was. It seemed kind of plain when I mixed everything together Monday night, but wrapped up in the Flat-out, it was super flavorful. This Mediterranean Tuna Salad was adapted from the Jillian Michaels Master Your Metabolism Cookbook. I served it in a light Flat-out with baby kale and on the side had carrots and a cutie. Feel free to measure out your ingredients, but I pretty much just eye-balled everything and I love capers, so I used a little more than one tablespoon.

 

 

My afternoon snack was a Chobani Flip, the vanilla with cornflakes, honey oats, and praline pecans. It was, of course, yummmmyyyy. I just wish there was more of it! ;)

Dinner was a delicious huge salad…the best kind! In the bowl was spinach, baby kale, chicken, tomatoes, black olives, avocado and leftover Creamy Lemon Spring Pasta. I topped it with my very favorite dressing; a lemony olive oil vinaigrette from one of my favorite local Italian restaurants. My husband and I seriously go crazy for this vinaigrette. I’ve tried to recreate it, but I haven’t been successful yet.

It was a great day of eats, indeed! Hope it was for you too!

Something to think about….

Have you tried the Chobani Flips yet?

Tuna salad….love it or hate it? I have another tuna salad recipe on the blog that is a real crowd pleaser. It’s really different and made with avocado, corn, tomatoes and cottage cheese.

Have you ever tried quinoa for breakfast?

  2. I love Quinoa for breakfast!! It tastes so good with all the sweet ingredients. And I like Tuna salad, but i can not eat it too often. If it is in a Flatbread I am all over it though :-)

  6. I don’t think that I have ever eaten capers. I will have to try them out in a vegetarian “tuna” salad, possibly with chickpeas in place of the tuna!

  11. I love those days where everything tastes extra good :) All of your eats definitely look delicious, but would you mind sharing a Chobani flip? W don’t have them up here and I’d love to try one ;) I’ve had quinoa for breakfast before but wasn’t really a huge fan. I think it wa s mostly a texture thing for me – I just love that gooeyness of oats!

  12. I am so hungry after reading your post! I LOVE Chobani but have never teied the Flip. Gonna have to get that this weekend. Love tuna salad but I make it with greek yogurt and dijon mustard instead of mayo. I also mix tuna with quinoa and pineapple chunks for a quick lunch!

    • I love it with Greek yogurt too…. and I also like it with cottage cheese and avocado. Mixed with quinoa and pineapple is a great idea!

  13. Definitely bookmarking that breakfast quinoa recipe! And omg, I’m so excited about your giveaway.

  14. I love those days when everything tastes FANTASTIC. :) I haven’t tried a Chobani Flip yet, but the key lime pie flavor is calling my name.

  15. I love homemade tuna salad. I don’t like mayo so I will usually only eat tuna salad if I have made it and know everything thats in it. I love the key lime and coconut cho flips, they are amazing!

  16. I haven’t ever tried quinoa for breakfast. Maybe I will give it a go. I love switching up breakfasts, but they all seem to be variations of the same things!

  17. I LOVE tuna salad and yours looks great! I tried breakfast quinoa before, but the recipe called for microwaving it and that was a PAIN!!!!!!! I have saved yours, so the next time I make quinoa (on the stovetop!) for dinner, I can save my leftovers and add the mixins!!! :)

  18. I love tuna salad–my secret is using Old Bay seasoning, which is from DC/Baltimore. We usually put it on crabs, but it can also be used on tuna salad to give it an extra punch and remind me of home :) Love the idea of quinoa for breakfast!

  23. Love days where everything I eat turns out to be just perfect! I had one the other day actually :-) I wasn’t a big tuna fan until switching over to Paleo. Now I love it! I typically add Dijon mustard, avocado, celery, dill, salt and pepper but this one sounds great!

    I love to mix half quinoa and half oats for breakfast, always make extra quinoa each time i cook it.
    If i win i would order a probiotics supplement since the quality ones are so expensive!

  25. I would love to get my protein powder from this store!

  26. Yum! This all looks delicious. I’ve heard so many good things about Chobani Flip. I need to get my hands on some!
