I haven’t been a part of What I Ate Wednesday in several MONTHS, and now I’m finally here, but going along with the “Sensible Snacking” theme, I just have random snacks over the past week to share with you.
First off, thanks Jen for hosting this, as it’s so much fun to make new foodie friends!
First off, I cut up a “personal watermelon” that yielded this giant container FULL of watermelon. It’s a great snack during the summertime–I’m so bad about drinking enough water in a day, so sometimes I’ll catch myself eating watermelon instead of drinking water. Priorities.
The other night I made this baby kale salad marinated in Cindy’s balsamic dressing topped with farmer’s market fresh yellow tomatoes and cracked pepper. I can finally say I like kale salad–because I soaked it for 30 mins in the fridge, it really made all the difference. This salad was so refreshing and there’s nothing better than fresh (and brightly colored) produce.
I got this kombucha at a little flea market near my house in Austin. I can’t remember the name of the company, but they have several flavors of kombucha on tap. That’s right, kombucha on tap. It was new to me, and I loved sampling a bunch. I ended up getting the pineapple super greens mix. You fill yours up in a jar and bring it back for a refill at a lower price. That’s what I call eco friendly!
Going along with the drinks, because it’s so hot here in Texas, sometimes snacks are best when cold and in liquid form. These smoothies are from Whole Foods. Don’t you love the rainbow of smoothies? I had the green smoothie–pineapple & spinach. (are you sensing a trend?)
