Helllllllllllloooooooooo everybody! I can’t believe how fast this week is flying by…it’s already Wednesday? Wha?! I hope you have all had a wonderful Hump Day filled with delicious foods and things that made you smile! 😀 <- Like that! Haha!
So here we are for another round of What I Ate Wednesday, hosted by the lovely Jen of Peas & Crayons! It’s her birthday today so why don’t you stop by and leave her some comment love?
I seriously had NO clue what to make for breakfast this morning! I kinda wanted oats…I kinda wanted eggs…I really wanted a green smoothie, but guess what…no spinach! 🙁 Challenge or no challenge, Heather is going to the store first thing on Friday for some greens!
The best way to use up veggies: Salad
The best way to use up veggies for breakfast: Omelet!
1 egg + 2 egg whites omelet, bagel thin topped with light cream cheese, mini peps, and garlic gold, and a cup of 1/2 caff qua-fee! 😉
- green leaf lettuce
- mini peppers
- shredded chicken breast
- a “hidden” mound of refried beans
- black olives
- Mrs. Dash Chipotle
- and some of Garden of Eatin’s Red Hot Blues (because I can!)
So I found these triscuits in the cupboard…I have no idea how long they’ve been up there, but surprisingly they’re not stale…alright! Snacktime! 😉
And now for dinner…
For the past few days, I’ve been thinking about what to do with the 3 pound bag of broccoli I picked up on my last trip to Sam’s. I’ve done well polishing off about half the bag, but being a week and a half out from moving means it’s time to get serious!

Do you ever dream about future recipes? Because I totally had a dream about this last night and it came out EXACTLY how I imagined!
- 1 cup soaked cashews, drained
- 1/2 cup water
- 2 cups steamed broccoli
- 3 tablespoons nutritional yeast
- 1/8 teaspoon ground mustard
- 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
- 1/8 teaspoon ground pepper
- salt to taste (I used Mrs. Dash Table Blend instead)
Place all ingredients in a food processor and blend until smooth and creamy. Adjust seasonings as needed to taste.
Wow, looks like I had a nooch filled day! Haha! What’s not to love? If you are unsure of what nutritional yeast is exactly, it is a deactivated yeast that is frequently used as a cheese substitute due to the cheezy, nutty flavor that it has. It is packed FULL of wonderful B-vitamins, protein, and fiber! It can be purchased at most health food stores or you can buy it online here.
Haha! I just realized this recipe made it just in time for St. Paddy’s Day!
Don’t forget to wear your green tomorrow! You don’t wanna get peenched!
Nutritional yeast: yay or nay?
