Yesterday I announced that this month What I Ate Wednesday is getting wrapped up in the month of LOVE with a theme. Nope, no Valentine’s Day shenanigans here — this month is all about loving your VEGGIES!
This week and for the rest of February: Veg-ify your WIAW posts! I’m challenging you all to show off what you love most about vegetables in your What I Ate Wednesday posts as well as favorite ways to prepare them, your go-to dishes and snacks, and anything else you want share about the wonderful world of vegetables. Of course that also means I want you to EAT them too =) Hope you’re up for the challenge!
I spent the weekend sleeping over at my friend Kim’s house + had a blast! We went to lunch at one of our favorite sushi restaurants, took her kiddos to fro-yo it up before heading to the movies, and cooked up an insanely good veggie stir fry dinner. I forgot to snap some of my foodie photos which is a surefire sign of a fun weekend!
[breakfast] scrambled eggs + black coffee [lunch] sake sushi and unsweet tea [snack] strawberry kombucha + froyo trio: toasted coconut with kiwi, chocolate with sprinkles + cake batter with oreos [movie snacks] a few handfuls of popcorn and a strawberry fruit leather [dinner] stir fry with fried tofu [recipe], shitake mushrooms, onions, snow peas + brown rice [dessert] 2-buck chuck pinot grigio and chocolate
ummm can we get another look at that sushi?
Sushi might be one of my favorite ways to sneak in extra VEGGIES:
Avocado… Cucumber… Jalapenos… Asparagus…
They take a roll from OK to AMAZING =) I even make my own at home!
Sticking with our veggie theme, here are a few ways to get extra veggies while dining out at your favorite sushi spot:
[roll with it] Order a veggie roll to pair with a fish-y one or as your appetizer
[duh, salads!] order a seaweed or ginger veggie salad with your meal
[stir things up] order a colorful veggie stir-fry from the kitchen
[treat yo self] craving something fried? skip tempura shrimp and order a plate of delicious tempura veggies. tempura sweet potato and broccoli is out-of-this-world delicious!
How are you vegging it up?
