What I Ate Wednesday: More Veggies Please!

This week’s WIAW has a FUN theme.  It went perfect for the meal plan that I made yesterday.  Again, thanks to Jenn over at Peas & Crayons for putting on this fun little food shindig every week!

This month it is all about veggies!  Wednesday’s (and hopefully most other days) will be filled with foods that have lots of vegetables in them.  So let’s get started!  Tuesday was the day that I started anew from my sick hiatus.  I forged full force back into my plant based diet.  This week I will spare you the picture of my same old oatmeal and my same old pea protein green smoothie.  Lets just say that I eat the same thing until noon everyday.

Lunch:  This lunch would have been way more fabulous if I hadn’t burned my Tofurky Italian Sausage.  I was on the phone with our Realtor, and started to smell burning tofu.  I did however get a chance to snap a picture in some natural light and it didn’t look half bad (I still suck royally at photography).

That my friends, is roasted spaghetti squash with spaghetti sauce, Tofurky Italian Sausage, and Vegan Parmesan (toasted sesame seeds, nutritional yeast, & sea salt blended to perfection).  It tasted pretty good, but I could have done without the burnt pieces.

Dinner:  I had to think of something that I could make a lot of because I took dinner to a friend who just had a baby.  So I decided that Mac & Cheeze would work best since I could just double the recipe.  I used an AH-MAZING recipe from Oh She Glows. Side note:  She will be coming out with a cookbook and I can hardly wait!  I have tried numerous recipes from Angela, and they have never disappointed!

This picture on the other hand, is horrible (no judging).

There are some hidden vegetables in there.  Red Potato’s, Carrots, and Onion.

I also forgot to mention that my green smoothie had about 2 huge handfuls of spinach in it.  I think I have sufficiently gotten in my vegetable servings for the day (probably even more, which doesn’t hurt).

How do you sneak your veggies in during the day?

Have you eaten anything memorable lately?

    Hi Carrie! I don’t “sneak” them in. I just eat lots of them obviously, like you are. You are doing fabulously. These vegetables over time are going to preserve your complexion in a lovely way. You’re noticing the nice skin glow, right?

    I love veggies, hard to believe I didn’t start eating them until I was in my 20s! I could eat kale every day. I pack the veggies in with big salads, smoothies with spinach and carrot and I add peppers, onions and tomatoes to pasta sauce. My son is super picky but lately he hasn’t been bothered by finely chopped spinach in his egg, grilled cheese and he doesn’t mind spinach in his smoothies. I do the best I can to get veggies into him even if it means sneaking them here and there.

    Angela’s mac & cheeze is delicious as is just about everything on her site.
