WIAW: Juice-tastic!


Happy What I Ate Wednesday!!

It is intensely HOT in Texas right now.  I believe we’re on day 31 of temps above 100 in a row.  Yesterday it was 110.  Needless to say it feels like we’re living in hell right now. 

My life is all about juice and smoothies right now, and I drink one with almost every meal!  True story.

Today’s focus is juice!

For breakfast I usually go with a green juice.  It’s chock FULL of vitamins and gives me oh so much energy!


My go-to green juice includes:

  • 4 big handfuls of spinach
  • 1 head of romaine lettuce
  • 4 stalks celery
  • 1/2 cucumber
  • 1 apple

I usually pair this up with a bowl of cereal or some whole wheat toast.

This morning’s cereal was Nature’s Path Heritage Flakes- love these!!! Sometimes I mix them with other cereals (like cheerios) and sometimes I like them by themselves!





Lunch is still eaten on the road right now, and unfortunately I have to eat it at 10:30!  I’ll be so glad when this class is over just so I can have a normal lunch time!


Hummus wrap (California Lavash wrap, hummus, Daiya Mozzarella, Franks Red Hot + sear in pan on both sides)


  • 4-5 handfuls baby carrots
  • 1 apple
  • small chunk of ginger

(oh, and apparently I just discovered that I did not invent my precious hummus wrap!  Apparently Mama Pea did- the crack wrap!  I had no idea of this until I was flipping through her cookbook!  Oh well, guess great minds think alike!)


Snack on the way home from school= bag o’ apple slices and a nectarine!



Quick and easy dinner idea…

1 can of your favorite fire-roasted tomatoes. (I LOVE LOVE LOVE the Muir Glen Fire Roasted Tomatoes with Adobo!)- put in blender or food processor and pulse until it reaches the consistency of pasta sauce.  Warm in a small saucepan and serve over your favorite whole wheat pasta.  A salad is always good to have with this- quick to prep!  Mine was romaine with broccoli slaw and cherry tomatoes with Annie’s Light Honey Mustard Vinaigrette.



There’s always gotta be a teeny bit of decadence in each day, and here’s mine!  Magic pop (like a rice cake but way better! the store I used to work at makes them fresh!) and PB&Co dark chocolate dreams PB!  ZOMG!


I used a Tablespoon on my magic pop and topped with a sliced banana.  Chocolatey slice of Heaven!




Well, that’s it for my WIAW!  What are you munching on today??



  1. Looks delish! I’ve been on a smoothie kick lately, so it’d be awesome if you’d share some of your smoothie ideas! 🙂

  2. Ahhh, the crack wrap. Such a delicious combo. I totally want to try a magic pop now!

    • I think they might actually have heroine in them. There’s no other reason that they could possibly be as addicting as they are!

  3. Oh fun! I’ve never had the Muir Glen Fire Roasted Tomatoes but I love roasted tomatoes in general. I’m always looking for a good base for some soup or veggie chili!

    Haha that magic pop stuff is fun! Sometimes I sprinkle it with cinnamon and sugar!

    • The Miur Glen Fire Roasted Tomatoes are THE best- they’re the only brand I buy now! I love the plain one and the adobo for soups and chili!

  4. I need to juice more, I’m just lazy. ALSO, I need to try one of those wraps! Like, soon! Except with refried beans instead of hummus. 😉

    • I tried the wraps with refried beans instead of hummus- good but not nearly as good as with the hummus! There’s something magical about when the hummus and the cheese melt together- it’s a taste I can’t even describe! And this is not like when I told you that tofu was delicious- this is straight up insanely awesome! Justin and I are addicted!

  5. I 100% need that juice right now! its KILLER outside today! Gardening has me dumping copious amounts of ice in my coffee right now 😉 Happy [eep! belated!] wiaw sarah!

  6. That magic pop looks delicious!!!
    Mmmm the greener the juice the better it tastes 🙂
    Lovely wiaw eats!
