So here we are half way through the week already. Boy, for some reason, this one has gone quickly! But let’s slow down a minute and smell the wonderful things cooking over at Peas & Crayons hostessed by the lovely Jenn! Yes, it’s What I Ate Wednesday…the place for all the fabulous Foodies to meet. Please be sure to travel over there, read some blogs, bookmark some recipes and Leave Some Comments. We really do all live for your comments! (I’m not even kidding!)
We’re still doing our best to be Green for WIAW. As you know, I’m vegetarian and it’s almost always Green around here. Those of you who visit BCDC regularly, you sort of know what you’ll be getting from me in the food area. When it comes to other things….I’m pretty scattered so you never know what you’ll find! You rarely get one entire day of food, I’m usually covering a meal here, a meal there. So in no particular order…
Ralph wasn’t feeling well or Monday so he actually had oatmeal for dinner! I threw together some whole wheat pasta, zucchini, yellow squash, some broccoli which might have passed its prime, garlic, crock pot black beans and diced tomatoes with green chilies.
Topped with shredded cheese and sriracha sauce…So Good. I’m thinking I need to buy stock in sriracha sauce, what do you think?!?
I needed an evening snack and since I had made a crock pot full of apples…
So tasty topped with fat-free vanilla yogurt! Tastes so decadent, but this only counts for 2 Points (raisins and yogurt) Yum!
Couldn’t resist some more apples and raisins for breakfast on Tuesday morning.
My recent favorite mixture of oatmeal and oatbran with Splenda and almond milk…crowned with apples and raisins from the crock pot. This was so tasty and filling.
Breakfast was so filling, I didn’t feel like anything more than Greek yogurt for lunch.
My wonderful Chobani from my Good Deal Saturday! Black Cherry for today. I still have a hard time believing I get 14 grams of protein from that little pot, not that I’m complaining of course!
It wouldn’t be WIAW on BCDC without a Salad! Looks pretty familiar.
Romaine, plum tomatoes, celery, shredded cheese and crock pot black beans.
The new wrinkle in recent weeks…
Making my own salad dressing. I’ve done it a few times, but I think I’m going to stick with it and get creative. 1 Tbsp of olive oil, 1.5 Tbsps of red wine vinegar, 1 Tbsp of honey, 1 Tbsp of Dijon mustard and 1 Tbsp of water. I add the water to extend it because as you can see I make a Big Salad!
So very tasty in my Big Purple Bowl.
That’s What I Ate Wednesday for this week. Green enough for you? I do my best! Now all you have to do is travel over to Peas & Crayons to savor all of the wonderful foodie offerings and leave some comments. Make this an outstanding WIAW for some other happy bloggers.
Have a Great Day! Happy Green What I Ate Wednesday!
