What I Ate Wednesday posts are kind of weird, aren’t they? I mean, doesn’t it seem a little obsessive and silly to snap pictures of all your food?
Apple Cider Vinegar & Honey. Half a Banana.
When I try to explain it to people outside the blogging world I always get odd looks when I say that I show people what I eat. They’re first question is… who cares what you eat?
2 Eggs Fried in Kerrygold, salsa, Strawberries & Bananas.
But then again, why do we always ask the other people at our table what they are ordering when we go out to eat? I know I do that.
I don’t think it’s so crazy to be curious as to what and how other people eat. Nosy, maybe, but not odd. Seeing what someone eats gives you a peak into their world.
Dehydrated Strawberries and Raw Almonds.
And I love peaking into the lives of other people. Why do you think I like reading blogs so much?
Lettuce from the Garden, spinach, Radicchio, Blueberries, La Bonne Vie Honey Goat Cheese, baked Chicken, Avocado and Balsamic.
I’ve found new food tricks I never would have known about through blogging, like using soaked and blended cashews to create the crunchy deliciousness of kale chips!
Edamame. Not kale chips.
Swimming. Can’t get enough of her lately. I should do a toddlerhood update soon, huh?
I also use WIAW posts as a reference when meal planning. I love seeing what ate during the same season the previous year. It gives me ideas and keeps our menu interesting.
Plus, I love sharing new products with you. Like quinoa pasta. It was recommended to me by a friend, so we had to try it. The ingredient list is pretty- only two ingredients; organic corn and organic quinoa. Be warned, the corn from the pasta will release while cooking, turning the boiling water yellow. It’s normal.
The cooking is a little tricky though. You want it al dente, but not underdone. Also, stir it every so often while it cooks to prevent the noodles from sticking together.
Mussels Marinara over Quinoa Pasta with Fresh Basil. Red Wine on the side.
The verdict? I was a big fan! David said he would prefer it to whole wheat. I’ll be buying it again.
