Today marks the second installment of the WIAW Love Your Veggies month!
Last week you all shared your veggie-centric goals, meals, cooking tips and tricks, and other vegetable shenanigans in your posts and it. was. awesome!!!
Let’s keep up the veggie love this month and do more of the same.
To kick things off, I wanted to share one of my favorite posts from last week! Along with a few colorful meals and snacks, Sarah of Sweet Potato Sarah added a veggie-rich recap of her grocery haul. I absolutely loved the idea and decided to include a few grocery photos too:
I still have an abundance of colorful yellow and orange squash and carrots in the house, but I desperately needed some more green goodness in my life!
I picked up Arugala, Spinach, Avocados, Edamame, and pickled Pepperoncini Peppers along with some Bananas, Mushrooms, Onion, and Garlic. For quick eats, I also snagged a few amy’s frozen vegetable korma dinners, a newman’s own spinach pizza, and veggie patch falafel balls.
Another goal of mine is to purchase mostly produce with only a few natural and nutrient dense convenience foods. You won’t catch me with doritos or twinkies anytime soon =) Though you will frequently see me face-deep in some cheddar bunnies.
As for my What I Ate Wednesday day-of-eats, there were some fruits and veggies in the mix but… so not my norm! I chose to photograph the day before I went grocery shopping which is always a carb-heavy day just based on the fact that I’ve usually devoured all the produce in the house [hence needing to drag my butt to the store for more!]
