Is it just me, or does February feel like it is already flying by? Maybe it is because I have been busy at work and busy outside of work, but this week is definitely cruising right a long. Trust me, I am certainly not complaining! But enough February talk. Let’s talk about Wednesday and What I Ate Wednesday!
So it is “Love Your Veggies Month,” huh? Well if you know me at all, then you know I certainly won’t have a problem with this WIAW theme ;).
Breakfast consisted of two of my current favorite morning eats. I had two pieces of toasted Ezekiel 100% whole grain bread topped with half of a mashed avocado and salsa (p.s. you really must try the Wholly Guacamole salsa if you have not already..it is good!)…
…and raspberry Greek yogurt topped with fresh strawberries and blackberries. I honestly do not think that I could ever get enough blackberries right now.
This probably comes as no surprise. My mid-morning snack was a banana. And a really yummy banana at that. I was loving all of those brown spots!
For lunch I ate leftovers of last night’s dinner: Cheesy Quinoa ‘N Peas with “Bacon” (recipe to come) and a side of roasted broccoli.
I paired it with a serving of fresh cantaloupe. And yes, that is a container made for veggies and dip…let’s just say that I was running low on clean containers ;).
After work I headed to the grocery store and then got right to baking. It is my turn to bring breakfast to work tomorrow, so I baked a double-batch of Maple-Kissed Pumpkin Muffins. While I baked, I ate a sliced Jonagold apple dipped in PB2 peanut butter to tide me over until dinner.
Tonight’s dinner was beyond delicious! I made Chelsey’s Lentil Sloppy Joe’s and they were so, so tasty! I served the lentils on toasted whole wheat bread and topped the sandwich with a bit of sriarcha sauce. On the side I ate homemade sweet potato french fries and a dill pickle spear. I seriously cannot wait to eat my leftovers for lunch tomorrow!
Tonight’s snacks will likely consist of cooked green peas (weird, I know..but I just love them!), fresh fruits (cantaloupe, strawberries, blueberries, mandarin oranges…some or all of these?), and something salty. I am thinking either popcorn or Pop Chips. Both sound awfully enticing right now.
I hope you all had a fabulous Wednesday! It is almost Thursday, which means that it is almost Friday. Keep trucking a long!
