What I Ate Wednesday (10-28-2020)

A collage photo of everything I ate in a day.

It’s been a little while since I last shared a What I Ate Wednesday, and since I don’t have a new recipe quite ready for you this week, I thought this would be perfect.

In case you’re new hear, What I Ate Wednesday is my chronicles of what I ate in a day.

Alright, let me show you everything I ate last Wednesday!

Here’s a little vlog of my day:

Our milk wasn’t cooperating (I think it was getting a bit old?), so I made myself some matcha with cream instead of frothed milk.

I also added a bit of homemade vanilla syrup to sweeten it up.

It was kind of lukewarm since I poured a bunch of cold cream into the hot matcha.

But at least I got my matcha fix. ?‍♀️

Reuben made us some fried eggs, bacon, and hash browns for breakfast.

He’s been cooking us breakfast before he leaves for work lately.

If he leaves before the kids and I eat breakfast, he puts it in the warming drawer.


I’ve been trying to incorporate more protein into my diet.

I found these mini chicken apple sliders at Walmart.

It’s the brand Tribali.

I had some organic riced sweet potatoes in the freezer, and I figured they’d make a nice carby base.

I fried up the frozen sweet potatoes and sliders in a cast iron skillet.

Then I put some Primal Kitchen Chipotle Lime Mayo on top.

I discovered this mayo kind of by accident.

It was on sale, so I gave it a shot.

Turns out it’s actually yummy.

It may not look like a lot of food, but I’m proud of myself for finishing this off after a good sized breakfast.

Sometimes eating three regular meals a day feels like an accomplishment. ?

I’ve been struggling with having a healthy appetite lately. I don’t know if it’s stress or health related.


In the afternoon, I decided to make myself a snack.

I brewed myself a mug of this Traditional Medicinals Reishi mushroom rooibos & orange peel tea.

It isn’t amazing, but it’s caffeine free.

I’ve been trying to incorporate more mushrooms into my diet. I found this podcast episode by Wellness Mama really interesting on the subject of mushrooms.

These einkorn checkerboard cookies from Jovial are the perfect afternoon snack.

They’re just a little bit sweet, but definitely not sickeningly so.

Anya loves them.

Here was my tea + cookie contraption.

The idea was to warm up the cookie as the tea steeped.

It worked!

I added some cream into my tea as well.

It just feels wrong to not put something fatty into tea!


For supper, I made salmon, potatoes, and veggies.

I kept it simple and baked the salmon with salt and pepper.

I used my new probe thermometer to cook the salmon. 135° F was a little too long in my opinion.

But I think the salmon was less dry than I usually cook it. ?

I pan fried some frozen broccoli in a cast iron skillet.

Then I served it all with some coconut oil roasted potatoes and pumpkin sourdough dinner rolls.

Yep, I’m working on the recipe for those dinner rolls.

Hopefully I can get it out soonish!


I also had a few slices of Starkrimson pears.

If you see Starkrimson pears at your grocery store, I definitely recommend giving them a try! They’re one of my favorites.


So that’s everything I ate in a day!

Leave me a comment letting me know what your favorite afternoon snack is at the moment.

I’d love some new ideas!

Hello Erica, I was wondering how do you pan fry frozem broccoli? Do you use a bit of oil and just push it around on the pan until it defrosts and gets green? Thank you :)
