looks disgusting, tastes great

January 30, 2013

I’m not going to lie – I’m pretty excited about getting to post on a Wednesday morning right now. Mainly because that means I got to sit on my couch on Tuesday night to write it. Pure bliss, I tell you – Pure bliss.

I’m ready to get down to business today. I missed WIAW last week, so I’m excited to get back into it this week. I must warn you ahead of time – my dinner looks disgusting, but it was gooooood.

Peas and Crayons

Breakfast – 6:00 AM

January 29, 2013 006

2 eggs, scrambled
apple slices
udi’s gluten free bread with pb & banana slices

Snack – 9:15 AM

Some more apple. I’ve been buying the pink ladies from Trader Joe’s, and they have been superb!  PS – That is a recycled picture!

Lunch – 11:30 AM

Tuesdays and Thursdays are “out to lunch days”, and we went to a place called Buona Beef. They have a gluten free flatbread there with this great Portobello sandwich. It has artichokes, and I love getting it whenever we go there. I always get a side salad with it.

Snack – 2:00 PM

January 16, 2013 008

Peanut butter and strawberry KIND bar – so good!

Snack – 4:15 PM

I was still hungry when I got home, so I snacked on a few chips and hummus.

Dinner – 6:00 PM

Looks gross, right? Trust me on this one. I made a lentil sloppy joe recipe, and it was DELICIOUS! I’ll share more later, but I’m glad I finally made this. It’s only been in the back of my mind for years. YEARS!! On the side we had roasted cauliflower.

Snack – TBD

I am going to have one though! Last night (Monday night) was the first night I slept through in a long time, and I think it’s because I ate a snack. I hadn’t been wanting one after dinner, but I guess I have to eat one!

Now that I’m seeing this, I didn’t eat too many green things yesterday. Time to get in some greens today!

Question: What’s the best thing you ate yesterday?

Sometimes the best food looks the least appealing- like Indian food! I love it but can never snap a decent pic.
I’m intrigued by the lentil joes! Do tell… :)

That’s my favorite flavor of kind bar…delicious!

I’ve been loving pink lady apples lately too! I don’t get much of a lunch break at work so I have to snack while I’m teaching (so professional, right?), and apples are the easiest thing to grab!

I love Kind bars! I just bought the dark chocolate cherry one yesterday for a snack today.

Kind bars are always good! I have two bags of lentils I need to use!

I need to look out for that KIND bar flavor- yum! Best thing I ate yesterday was (in typical blogger fashion) was a salad with teriyaki chicken, feta, chickpeas, grilled vegetables and an amazing honey mustard dressing….it just really hit the spot!

Some of the best food looks a little icky! :) Roasted cauliflower is a shiz dizzle (not sure were that came from….I’ve been watching too much Fresh Prince of Bel Air clearly! :) )

Claire @ Flake and Cake January 30, 2013 at 7:05 am

I love ugly food! Have you ever seen almond butter looking pretty in a picture? Or dates? They are my favourites but they really don’t look beautiful!

Kelly Morton January 30, 2013 at 7:08 am

The favorite thing I ate yesterday was your chickpea lettuce wraps. Sooooo good!!! Thank you.

Danica @ It's Progression January 30, 2013 at 7:10 am

My worst looking smoothies are always the ones that taste the best…I’m excited for that lentil sloppy joe recipe!

Your lunch sounds amazing. I love when restaurants have vegetarian sandwich options that are something other than a veggie burger. Don’t get me wrong, I love veggie burgers, but I eat them a lot when I dine out.

Yes, your dinner doesn’t look the greatest ;) , but I love lentils so it sounds amazing. I cannot wait to see the recipe :) .

Alisha @ Alisha's Appetite January 30, 2013 at 7:24 am

Pink ladies are one of my favorite apples! Brown food never looks very appeasing but it’s the most delicious!

Reply

Lauren January 30, 2013 at 7:35 am

I just bought Pink Lady Apples from TJ’s and thought the same thing! Pink Lady are my favorite too so I’ve been loving them!

And that roasted cauliflower reminds me of our date from The Girl and The Goat which I think we need to repeat. OMG, that cauliflower dish….I die!!!

I love the KIND bars, althought I have never had the PB and strawberry, I bet its tasty! The best thing I had yesterday was homemade pizza!

Sam @ Better With Sprinkles January 30, 2013 at 8:07 am

Love KIND bars, but I haven’t tried that one yet!
I think the best thing I ate yesterday was my after-dinner chocolate – but that’s always my favourite part :-p

I need to make lentils! I have a bag in my cupboard and I keep forgetting they are there!

Rebecca January 30, 2013 at 8:17 am

I make lentil sloppy joes a lot, they’re SOOOOO good. If you haven’t yet you should try the lentil “meatloaf” recipe from Oh She Glows. SO good.

Debbie Harris January 30, 2013 at 8:19 am

I had roasted brocccoli slaw last night. My favorite!!! Can’t wait for your lentil recipe. Love lentils.

Ashley @ My Food 'N' Fitness Diaries January 30, 2013 at 8:19 am

I really need to experiment with lentils one of these days… I’ve never even had them before! Crazy, right? That KIND bar sounds yummy – I’ve never tried that one before. Best thing I ate yesterday was probably my wrap for lunch. I can’t get enough of those things!

Steph January 30, 2013 at 8:29 am

Those tri-color tortilla chips from Trader Joe’s are my favorite chips EVER. I’ve never tried their horseradish hummus, but I always get their Meditarranean White Bean Hummus…I could pretty much eat the entire tub of it in one sitting, it’s that good!

Carly @ Snack Therapy January 30, 2013 at 8:44 am

I grew up eating Manwich sloppy joes on soft, white hamburger buns, so I’m always a little bit wary about the lentil versions. I should probably get over my irrational sloppy joe fear and just try them already.

Judy January 30, 2013 at 8:45 am

I’ve never tried lentil sloppy joe’s….we LOVE lentil tacos (even my carnivore husband), though, so we’ll give it a try. (No, your photo did not look gross! ☺)

Meghan @ After the Ivy League January 30, 2013 at 8:51 am

Love your breakfast, I have that a lot too. When I’m craving eggs and fruit and peanut butter..love breakfast food! And I often find the same thing after I write a WIAW post…I’ll look through it and be like hmm, where are the veggies? haha guess I should eat more tomorrow!

Lauren @ Eat Like An Elephant January 30, 2013 at 9:12 am

Home made gluten free pizzas with chicken sausage, peppers, and onions. I wish I could find a place near me that made gluten free flatbreads, I miss them!

definitely going to have to find that kind bar! mmmm. my roommate and i are obsessed with those chips.

Jana @ Happy Wife Healthy Life January 30, 2013 at 9:14 am

So many of my fav foods look gross! Ha ha! Pumpkin oatmeal, green smoothies, yogurt messes, just to name a few! Lol

Stephanie @ My Freckled Life January 30, 2013 at 9:18 am

I hate foods like that – taste delicious, photograph horribly! Especially as bloggers, it’s always such a bummer! But lentil sloppy joes definitely sound amazing! You’ll have to give us the recipe soon!

Molly@This Life Is Sparkling January 30, 2013 at 9:22 am

I made a lentil loaf yesterday too (from Eat, Live, Run) and it was so good!

Katie @ Peace Love & Oats January 30, 2013 at 10:02 am

okay, yep. That looks disgusting. But I’m sure it was great. And I looked up Buona but there aren’t any in the city… rude.

Amanda @ .running with spoons. January 30, 2013 at 10:05 am

Snobby joes! Woot! I’ve made those on a few occasions and they’re definitely ugly but good. And I don’t even think I can fall asleep without having a snack before bed, and if I miraculously manage that, you can bet that my stomach is waking me up at 2:36 AM and forcing me to blindly make my way to the kitchen to get a snack – true story.

Ashley @ Life and Fitness January 30, 2013 at 12:09 pm

I feel like the best foods are the ones that always look gross! haha. Roasted cauliflower is also on my menu this week too :)

Angela @ Beauty in Strength January 30, 2013 at 12:12 pm

Can’t wait for the lentil recipe. :)
Brownie Batter Oats – look disgusting too, but taste incredible!

your breakfast looks pretty much exactly like what i’m eating right now! (breakfast foods are so good, i can’t just eat them in the morning! lol)

Kate @ Quarter Century Southern Living January 30, 2013 at 12:56 pm

Is that ketchup on your eggs!? I hope so, that’s the only way I eat them and it will make me feel better to know that someone else does the same!!

Reply

Lisa January 30, 2013 at 2:22 pm

Your Dinner sounds superb!! I always find the least visually pleasing items are definitely the best tasting. It’s annoying, but oh well;)
Honeycrisp and pink ladies are my favorite apples of all time. Yum.
Oh man, I seriously can’t go to bed without a night snack. I wake up waaay too hungry otherwise. It’s just not pretty for anyone.

Sarah January 30, 2013 at 3:33 pm

I’ve had an apricot kind bar and it was amazing. I am totally interested in that sloppy joe recipe. Random question: what kind if nutritional yeast do you use?

Reply

Angela @ Health's Angel January 30, 2013 at 4:35 pm

Pink lady’s are the best apples, by far! Lentils are not a pretty food, but they are delicious. I made a batch not too long ago to have on hand. I’ve been mixing them into soup for the protein!

Annette@FitnessPerks January 30, 2013 at 5:33 pm

Mmmm lentils–soo good!

I haven’t tried having bread with peanut butter with banana toppings.
It looks yummy. I better try that.

The best thing I had was a tie between a roasted chicken breast on top of barley and shitake mushrooms and an apple compote topped with homemade maple pecan ice cream for dessert. I got to enjoy this with my family last night before my surgery this morning(which went well- using the hospital wifi to catch up on blogs I follow). I’m the queen of looks disgusting but tastes like heaven haha. My brother confused a ground chicken black bean patty I made the other night for a burnt personal pizza. No big deal.

It’s funny how many delicious things I eat that look really gross. People probably think I’m nuts! lol

Chelsea @ One Healthy Munchkin January 30, 2013 at 8:24 pm

I’ve been wanting to try making lentil sloppy Joes too! I think I saw a recipe on Edible Perspective ages ago that I wanted to make!

The best thing I ate yesterday was lentil soup from my freezer. I made it months ago and forgot how good it was!

ohhhhh I can’t wait for that recipe!!!
