Who’s ready for some What I Ate Wednesday fun? I’m pretty excited about today’s post because it marks one week free of meat for me. (I gave up meat for Lent. Details here.) I’ve felt really good all week (a bit lighter) and have experimented with new-to-me foods, which is part of the goal.
Without further ado, here’s a very veggie WIAW!
Even though we are experiencing the coldest temps of the year, I still don’t mind drinking a smoothie for breakfast. While I love switching up the fruit I put in my morning drink, one thing is for sure — throw in a handful or two of greens! This beauty is a mix of frozen cherries, spinach, almond milk and Vega Sport chocolate protein powder.
Roasted chickpeas. Crunchy and full of protein.
This meal should be renamed to “all the veggies.” I’ll be honest; I didn’t have much inspiration to create lunches for the week. I’m really good about bringing my lunch to work every day, sometimes I just get stuck in a rut. Your suggestions are more than welcome! Today I threw together a broccoli slaw salad with extra cabbage, garbanzo beans and sunflower seeds. Plus carrots, hummus and an apple on the side.
Homemade chocolately, peanut buttery granola bar for a pre-gym snackity.
Can you believe I’d never had Thai food until about 3 months ago? I know. Well this dinner certainly embraced the unknown. Not only did I attempt to make Pad Thai at home, I baked tofu to toss in it! Overall, I think it turned out delicious, but my tofu cooking skills could definitely use a little work.
