What I Ate Wednesday: Comfort Food

Hola mi amigos! Hope you are all having a fantastic week! I had so much fun reading through all of your random facts from yesterday’s post. You guys are awesome!

You know what today is right?….drumroll please!

It’s time for another What I Ate Wednesday!

Breakfast (8:00am)
Whole wheat English muffin with PB, cottage cheese & honey,
2 eggs scrambled with pepper and nooch,
Frozen fruit (steebies, mango, peaches, pineapple),
thawed and sprinkled with unsweetened coconut shreds
Cup o’ Dark Steamy Joe

Howabout a closer look?

The only man I need in life…well, AND Tiger! 😉

Nom, nom, nom!
I am now officially obsessed with this sandwich!

Lunch (12:15pm)
BBQ chicken sammie (shredded chicken breast & onions + TJ’s All-Natural BBQ sauce)
Roasted cauliflower
Steamed peas

Seriously, why don’t I roast cauli more often??

Smokey Roasted Cauliflower: (serves 2)

  • 1/2 medium cauliflower, chopped
  • 1/4 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 tablespoon nutritional yeast
  • cooking spray

1. Mist a baking sheet with non-stick cooking spray.
2. Lay out cauliflower florets on sheet without overlapping pieces.
3. Sprinkle with spices and then mist with more cooking spray.
4. Roast in a 425* oven for 20 minutes, or until tender.
5. Toss cooked florets in nutritional yeast and serve.

Snack (4:30pm)
Siggis Pomegranate & Passion Fruit Yogurt and
1/2 tablespoon chia seeds

Dinner (7:45pm)
Leftover quesadillas with gauc and salsa and
4 mini sweet peppers

Today’s drinkage included my new favorite teas and
32 ounces of water in my Camelbak bottle

Today was definitely a good eats kind of day! Not your typical “comfort food”, but uber comforting to my belly! I am still so full from dinner…yay for beans!

Beans, beans…good for the heart! The more you eat, the more you…feel satisfied after dinner? Of course…why whudya think I was gonna say? 😉

Oh and top of the news today! I officially converted one of my co-workers into a hummus lover! Thank you Sabra for your spinach and artichoke creamy goodness! You should have seen her face when she was trying it. At first, you’d think I just asked her to lick a toilet seat and then after her first bite, she asked for more! Ha!

What is your favorite flavor of hummus?
I have always loved roasted red pepper, but I’m getting a little burnt out on it. My newest go-to is TJ’s white bean hummus!

What’s the best thing you ate today?
PB + cottage cheese sammie…but c’mon, you already knew that!

  1. The cottage cheese and english muffin look great! That’s my kind of breakfast!

  2. I can’t get that roasted cauliflower out of my mind! Must have it! YUM! I am curious about the white bean hummus. Hahaha some people love it others hate it! I hope you have a most excellent Thursday.

    • Roasted cauliflower beats raw ANY DAY! Well, according to Matt, I have to try his recipe before I can claim my love to TJ’s white bean hummus! I know what I’m doing this weekend! Hmm, I think I may try my hand at some edamame hummus too! Yum!

  3. Today, my mom made some sauted cabbage! SO INCREDIBLE! I literally ate it all up! 😀 I’ve never tried Cottage Cheese with Peanut Putter! Sounds SO delicious!

    Garlic Hummus is what I crave! 😀


  4. carlee says:

    I can’t imagine putting PB and cottage cheese together! Yikes! Is it really that good? It looks delicious but it sounds like it would taste awful together…ya know? or NO? 😉

    Please correct my wrongness here…

    • Yes, it is REALLY that good! But you have to put the honey it too…otherwise the tart taste of the cottage cheese overbears the peanut butter! Try it! And then tell me what you think!

  5. Casey says:

    TJ’s horseradish hummus rocks my world.
    I like the addition of cottage cheese in your sammie.
    My flatmate eats cottage cheese topped waffles every morning. It’s not the worst scent to wake up to 😉

  6. I LOVE roasted cauliflower! I used to eat it raw… so not the same. It is so good when it’s been in the oven!

  7. Mrs. Fish says:

    I LOVE Sabra’s spicy hummus! I love twirling everything around in Sabra hummus. 🙂
    It’s really expensive though, and sadly Sam’s doesn’t carry my fave. 😦

    • Oh I know! My Sam’s only carries red pepper, spinach artichoke, and pine nut! All great flavors but I need more variety…and it’s hard to pay the same price for a MUCH smaller container at a different store! Boo!

  8. You need to make my white bean hummus before you say TJ’s is your favorite 😉

  9. Alexandra says:

    ohhh man I have always loved cottage cheese and peanut butter, straight up! IT’s such a high-protein, filling snack! I definitely have to try it on a sandwich!

  10. inmytummy says:

    I actually like plain hummus the best. Although my husband is a huge fan of Sabra’s supremely spicy so we buy that a lot too.

  11. movesnmunchies says:

    oo my fave is red pepper!!!! woah white bean? I LOVE THis.. im thinking i am going to experiment with different beans for my next batch of hummus
    i also LOVE putting liquid smoke into my hummus batch!!
    the best thing i ate was my OATS with melty pb!

  12. Best thing I ate yesterday was a PB and cottage cheese quesadilla! It was BOMB! Girl, we are so the same, I love orange spice and peach tea!! I love spinach-artichoke hummus. All of your eats looks great!

  13. I want and english muffin with PB and a giant quesadilla for lunch please! You take orders right? also… I need you to come plate all of my food from now on out. You can have the spare bedroom, just move on in and we’ll have a blast! =) haha

    love ya girl! Thanks for linking up! ❤

  14. Kayla says:

    Your eats are amazingg, as per usual!

    PB and cottage cheese…I’m thinking I will be trying that SOON! Haha

    I love roasted red pepper hummus, too! But c’mon, what hummus isn’t my favorite!?

  15. That cauliflower looks brilliant – I was just thinking “why don’t I roast it?” when I saw your picture caption!
    And with paprika too?? You speaka my language 🙂

  16. Jenny says:

    Best thing I had was my choco oats this morning! I love your savory breakfast, it’s so different since I’m always having something sweet. I never do anything fancy to my cauliflower but I like the way you roasted it. Yums 😀

  17. Anastasia says:

    Your breakfast looks super good.. yum! I’ve never seen that yogurt before. Is it good? Is it kind of like Greek yogurt?

    I’ve been on a tea kick lately and orange and spice sounds awesome! I might have to pick some up on my next shopping trip.

    • Siggis is one of my faves. It’s a lot like Greek yogurt (thick and protein heavy!) This flavor was a new one for me and I really liked it. Sounds funny, but it kinda felt like I was eating my yogurt while drinking red wine!

  18. This Italian Family says:

    Ah, I love comfort food 🙂

  19. I love me some garlic hummus or spicy hummus… or chipotle… or I had horseradish hummus once that was amazing! Um… I like hummus 😉

  20. food looks deelish! and im obsessed with that orange spice tea yum-o

  21. Priyanka says:

    red pepper hummus and garlic are my absolutely favorite! Never tried the white bean hummus, may be I’ll just make it at home.

  22. Ma Ma Megan says:

    I love cauliflower! I’ve only had it steamed though, I can’t eat it raw, it’s not appealing to me.
    I’ve got to try it roasted 🙂

  23. Yummm pass me some of that roasted cauliflower! 😉
