To end the month of February, this week’s What I Ate Wednesday post is all about VEGGIES! I’ve been making an extra effort to include even more fresh veggies as the majority of what I’m eating lately. Surprisingly, I went 5 days last week without much meat or dairy. No, I’m not going vegan, but yes, all the veggies made me feel great!
So here you go, a day in the life of my veggie-filled plates:
Breakfast: Green smoothie, COFFEE with almond milk, and a blueberry oatmeal muffin. The muffins were a great addition to my usual breakfast and kept me full for longer.
Lunch: Broccoli, leftover brussel sprouts, and lentils. This worked well to bring to work and I just heated it up a bit before I ate it. It was super filling.
Snack: Carrot juice and an apple. Wondering about the carrot juice? I thought it was blah….frankly, it tasted like carrots and they are better to chew than sip.
Dinner: Back to my beloved Whole Foods. I was in a rush again tonight and had to grab dinner before an event. It’s become an expensive habit lately, but oh well. This wasn’t my usual Whole Foods so the salad bar had different choices. I chose a zucchini slaw thing and some tofu with a yummy peanut sauce (which became sorta a salad dressing). Yum!
Nighttime Snack: I ate a bowl of raw oats with almond milk and a spoonful of peanut butter. No picture. whoops!
So, how about you: Do you feel noticeable better when you eat more veggies?
