Yesterday had to be one of the busiest day’s I have had in a while. I had to meet with the Accountant, run around town collecting information for our home loan, and get grocery shopping done. The hub’s said that all we have in our fridge right now is Almond milk and Kombucha, which I am totally ok with, but apparently he cannot live on those two things alone (weirdo).
I tried to be very conscience of the veggie theme this month for What I Ate Wednesday, and my day is proof that you can fit lots of veggies in, even when you are busy, busy!!! Once again thank you to Jenn from Peas & Crayons for being just plain awesome.
Breakfast: Oatmeal with berries. Along with more vegetables, I’m also trying to get more fruit in as well. I find that some days I can go most of the day on grains alone, and I am trying to eat more of a rainbow of foods to ensure I’m getting all of my vitamins and nutrients.
Plus, I just love that it makes my oatmeal reddish, pinkish, purplish. It makes it more fun to eat!
Lunch: Subway! I am loving $5 footlong February. I spent most of the day in the car (besides Hanna’s naptime), so I tried to make the best “fast food” choice I could.
I’m not going to lie, this sandwich was a beast. I got a veggie delight on whole wheat, no cheese, and almost every vegetable they have. I’m pretty sure that sandwich is made up of mostly black olives, pickles, and red onions. Whatever, it was amazing. I topped it off with yellow mustard, a stripe of oil, and salt and pepper. It kept me full for most of the afternoon.
Confession: I fell for the mini-cakes that Walmart had on display with all of the produce (oxymoron much?). They had tiny little hearts, and Dustin and I ended up sharing it. It was glorious (and un-pictured).
Dinner: This could quite possibly be the oddest dinner I’ve had in a long time.
That is a slice of a Vegan Taco Bake, with salsa, roasted broccoli (for green goodness), sweet potato fries with ketchup. It calmed pretty much any craving I was having and it was delicious.
What vegetable have you been digging on lately?
