WIAW 7/30- Sushi and Shakes

Hello!  Welcome back!  Welcome to What I Ate Wednesday (or in my case What I Ate Saturday this week.)

Crustless Artichoke Quiche

Saturday morning I was actually inspired to make breakfast for Chad and I.  Awhile back he had brought home a crust less artichoke quiche he had found at a Farmer’s Market and I have been thinking about making it at home ever since.  I finally took the plunge and went for it.  It turned out OK, but there are some things I would like to tweak when I make it next time and before I share it on the blog.

Cafe Latte yogurt

I also had a Stonyfield Organic Cafe Latte Greek yogurt.  I like this brand as it is one of the very few that use carrageenan.  Though I don’t drink a lot of coffee I do love the flavor of coffee yogurt.

Dandelion Root Detox Tea

I have also been drinking a Dandelion Root Detox tea from a recipe I found from Jillian Michaels.  The idea is to drink 60oz. (7 1/2 cups) of water with one dandelion root tea bag, 2tbsp. of lemon juice and 1 tsp. of cranberry juice.  You drink it for 7 days and it is supposed to eliminate all that extra water weight.  Truthfully I haven’t seen a major difference yet except that I‘ve woken up incredibly thirsty.  I’ll let you know my results if I can actually stick with it for 7 days in a row.

Kale Salad with Peanut Dressing

Lunch I made us a nice Kale Salad with Peanut Dressing.  It’s from a recipe based on the kale salad at Houstons and it’s been pretty popular on the blog.

Pea Avocado Spread Wheat Thins BeautyandtheBeets

I also made these super easy and quick Pea, Avocado and Radish Stacks.  The original recipe called for the use of jicama cut into 1/2” planks.  I will never use jicama in anything I ever make ever again.  It was so difficult to cut.  I can’t believe I didn’t los and finger or break a knife.  Never again.  We liked it better on good old fashioned crackers anyway.

Shrimp Bento Box

Dinner was a date night.  We went to a sushi restaurant which is an enormous feat for Chad.  He is not a fan of raw fish but lately he has started to explore the world of veggie rolls.  I am loving that he is becoming more adventurous and is willing to go to a sushi place with me.  I love sushi- although this time I went for the Shrimp Bento Box.  It was a lot of food.

Shrimp EBI roll

I did get to have a shrimp sushi roll that was part of my Bento Box.

Twistee Treat International Drive

We ended our date with a visit to Twistee Treat.  We love taking a trip to our favorite oversize ice cream cone for an ice cream treat of our own.  We both went for strawberry shake.  You can never go wrong with a strawberry!

Thank you to Jenn from Peas and Crayons for the Wednesday WIAW link up!

We had a great date night- always the highlight of my week.  Do you have a night you set aside for a date night with your honey?  What has been your best date ever?

Decoding Diet Graph

This is a very interesting graph that decodes some of the different diets out there that as recently sent to me.  By diet I mean how you eat- not eating to lose weight.

A very special thanks to eReplacementParts.com for sponsoring this post.

Are you on a special diet?
