Happy hump day!

Welp, we sure got a blizzard in Boston yesterday. I didn’t mind it so much though. One, I got to stay warm and cozy and develop recipes all day. Two, Steve got to work from home too and was nice to have some company during the work day for a change (no offense, Constantine).

Here’s a lineup of my Wednesday eats:


Steel cut oatmeal (made with coconut milk) topped off with walnuts, chia, and cinnamon.Β Satsuma on the side.

Black tea with honey & lemon.

What The Foodie Dietitian Ate Wednesday #1-1


Parsley, lemon and cannellini bean salad via Ottolenghi’s Plenty More. Made with red quinoa and lots of fresh herbs like parsley and cilantro, this bright grain salad was perfect to make at the beginning of the week and lasted me for lunch all week.



Ottolenghi overload warning. Yes, I made two of his recipes in one week. This one, we had for dinner – Legume Noodle Soup. It was an Iranian inspired soup made with turmeric, beans, noodles, lime and sour cream. I loved it. Steve, not so much. Maybe it was the bright neon yellow color that turned him off. That, or the fact that my cutting board is now forever stained yellow. #messycook

  1. Delicious eats as always! And of course anything Ottolenghi I love! We had Minestrone Soup with Giant White beans and Winter Squash last night…love soup for dinner – so warming and satisfying!

  2. THAT BREAKFAST!!!! All of your internal organs = SOOOO HAPPY πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ lol weird comment but, it’s true – such a cancer fighterrrr!

  3. I have been cooked dinner from the Ottolenghi book and really must purchase it!

  4. All your meals look so bright and colorful! Gorgeous photos!

  5. I have to make that bean salad ASAP!! I have been so into beans lately, I don’t know why!

  6. I have to admit that I’m a little envious that you all got a snow day, and a whole lot of beautiful snow. I don’t mind the cold if it looks pretty outside, and Chicago does NOT look very pretty at the moment.

    I would have been very happy eating those three meals yesterday, the soup sounds incredible!

  7. Yum – steel cut oats and quinoa and bean bakes make up most of my meals- yes – I have oats for dinner at times!
