I made the mistake of looking through a folder full of past What I Ate Wednesday photos and collages yesterday. That problem I have with making old recipes on repeat? It just got a whole lot worse! I wound up tweaking my grocery list so I could make all my favorites. I figured it’s a month usually dedicated to the Hallmark holiday of LOVE and I owe it to myself to eat all the foods I love.
Tell us about your favorite vegetables. Share your go-to cooking/prep methods for veggies. Talk about how you add extra fruits and vegetables to your daily eats. Challenge yourself to eat more vegetables this month/week/year & any other veggie-centric topics you can whip up! Have fun with it =)
I always benefit from a shake-up of sorts and this theme has a way of driving me to faceplant into my crisper drawer. Though it’s not difficult to get me to eat my veggies, I haven’t been as consistent as I’d like to be! Some days are filled with vegetables and others fall a bit short. The day of eats I’m sharing today is an example of one that’s not terrible, but lacking. I’m hoping to step up my game for the rest of the month. Join me?
Breakfast was a small bowl of swiss muesli with coconut milk. Nothing new there! It left me pretty hungry so I wound up snacking on an [unphotographed] larabar as well as some cuties clementines and a banana. I was almost too busy to eat lunch [it was one of my crazier days!] but managed to pop a bunch of frozen whole foods quiche in the toaster oven. I downed a few handfuls of cinnamon oat squares while I waited! Dinner was a bowl of leftover tortilla soup [vegetarian-style this time around with extra peppers and beans!] topped with cheese and avocado and served with a pile of yellow corn tortilla chips. I’m still not sick of this one yet! It’s my favorite meal to toss in the slow cooker! To mix things up I made a huge pot of [this] tomato soup [minus the cream!] and stole a few spoonfuls before putting the nugget to bed and promptly passing the eff out.
I just added nearly every vegetable known to man to my grocery list for the week. That should make vegging things up around here much easier! I think this will be the year I hunt down a CSA box situation with a local farm. I keep meaning too get started with a weekly box and really hope I can find one to get started with! Anyone have tips for choosing a CSA?
Ok enough rambling! Le’ts get this WIAW show on the road!
