In case you’ve just tuned in, every Wednesday I share some of the foods I eat in a day. Thanks to Jenn at Peas and Crayon for hosting What I Ate Wednesday!
Happy Wednesday and April Fools’ Day. Did you get pranked or have any good tricks up your sleeve? ;) James got me real good when he told me he missed his flight home and was rebooked for tomorrow — and I believed it! Whooops!
In other news…breakfast of the day. I had almond butter on whole wheat toasts with a glass of orange peach mango juice from TJ’s. I discovered this blend recently and have been really loving it. It’s actually a blend of six juices (apple, pineapple, white grape, orange, peach, and mango) perfect for drinking plain or making smoothies. I am thinking it would be great in mimosa and sangria, too.
Lunch was a sandwich I picked up from Whole Foods with turkey, brie, and green apple. You can’t go wrong with this combo.
I brought a Minneola tangelo for late afternoon snacking. Tangelos taste like tangerine but the size of the segments is similiar to oranges. I love that they are not a lot of work to peel and are perfectly sweet and satisfying.
Finally, dinner was easy and fast. Cheese tortellini in pesto sauce served with some garlic knots I made using storebought buttermilk biscuit dough. I haven’t used storebought biscuit dough in ages, and lately, I’m rediscovering how versatile they can be! Seriously it took me under 30 minutes to prep and bake the garlic knots.
I actually love my homemade version more than the pizzeria garlic knots made from pizza dough – the texture is fluffy and not as dense.
By the way, my department just installed a new water cooler that dispenses sparkling water — it just made drinking water so much more fun! We also received these recyclable glass bottles, which you bet I’ll be filling it up all day long :)
I was thinking of getting some lemon flavored water enhancers to make sparkling lemonade. Have you tried them? If so, which brand/flavor do you recommend?
