WIAW: Mr. FUntastic Takes Over!

Good morning everyone and...

Happy What I Ate Wednesday to you!



I have something special for you because...

My brother...

Mr. FUntastic...

Will be taking over this edition of Jenn's WIAW!

That's right...

My brother has given me all rights to share some of his eats that he's been having over the past little while! (Those of which he' been sharing with me in light of his new venture to healthy cooking and eating!)

By sending me his pictures (I'm slowly turning him into a Foodie lol)...

It's been holding him accountable to his goals....

Making his little sista very proud!

I shall treat him to a Robot dance upon his return home from one of his great geological adventures!

I mean...

He's been grocery shopping and filling his fridge with good, wholesome foods...

He's been cooking...

On top of...

Meal planning and prepping all at the same time! (Well, figuratively speaking of course lol)

I must admit...

Every time he calls me (or texts) me for meal ideas, recipes or to ask me questions about what to eat based on his goals...

I am totally, totally excited! (I mean, my big bro is coming to me for advice on cooking, let alone healthy eating and menu planning! The sister who never lifted a finger in the kitchen until just three years ago!)

Making Protein Cupcakes.

Needless to say...

I'm totally proud that my brother, Mr. FUntastic, has been taking it upon himself to...

Cook, eat well and enjoy it all at the same time!

All of that being said...

Here's a look into Mr. FUntastic's eats!

2 eggs with roasted flax seeds and...
Toast with his favourite toppings :)
Dijon Mustard Grain Chicken on the right :)
Oven baked Potato Chips.

And just when you thought the deliciousness ended...

Mr. FUntastic is sharing one of his latest creations!

He's sharing the recipe for his...

So without FUrther ado...

Here it is!

Mr. FUntastic's Chicken Vermicelli Noodle Bowl

by Mr. FUntastic
Prep Time: 10 Minutes
Cook Time: 15 Minutes

  • 1 garlic clove
  • 1/4 red and 1/4 orange peppers
  • 1 handful of broccoli
  • 1/2 zucchini
  • 1/2 avocado
  • 1 tablespoon of Omega Crunch garlic roasted flax seed (amazing stuff!)
  • Cilantro (to taste)
  • 1 chicken breast, diced
  • 1 cup cooked vermicelli noodles
  • Korean BBQ sauce (to taste) (President's Choice Brand <--- if you're into sauces, this is the best! I told my Bro he'd love it and he sure did!)
  1. Heat a teaspoon of oil (olive or canola) in a wok or fry pan
  2. Add the garlic, cook for a 20-30 seconds
  3. Add vegetables then diced chicken
  4. Add the Korean BBQ sauce once chicken is half cooked
  5. You may add the flax seed at this point or wait until the end
cooking the noodles
  1. In a separate pot, bring water to a boil and add vermicelli noodles (these cook incredibly fast). Be sure not to overcook, otherwise the noodles will disintegrate and turn into mush
  2. Once cooked, drain
Putting it together
  1. Once everything has cooked, add in the vermicelli noodles to your pan and mix it all together
  2. Slice your avocado into chunks and top
  3. Add cilantro to your liking
  4. Bowl and enjoy!
  • The most time consuming thing in all of this is the preparation. The rest is easy smeazy :)
