WIAW~It’s All Green To Me

What a fun thing to have a great celebration in the middle of the week.  It’s What I Ate Wednesday! If you’ve read BCDC for any length of time, you know that WIAW is the fun and games cooked up by Jenn over at Peas & Crayons!  After you’ve had your fill here, please be sure to travel over to P&C to see some great food and stories and leave some comments!

So here we go!

Peas and Crayons

The theme is Green, which for me is not tough considering I have been a vegetarian for 22 years or more.  I don’t actually remember when I decided to be vegetarian.  I know it was after I joined Weight Watchers which at the end of March will be 25 years! I’m figuring it’s about 22 years.  That sounds fair. So obviously for that reason…Green is OK with me!

I’ve been drinking more green tea lately.  I know it’s good for me and since in recent months Ralph and I have a cup of tea most afternoons, I’ve been going Green.  I like to mix it with other flavored teas, in the case Stash’s Lemon Ginger. Really Good!

Egg salad on a toasted sandwich thin with celery going for the Green! I’m using more and more celery lately.  I love the crunch it adds to things.

Never being one to waste things, I decided to make the most of the leftover salad from our Saturday night pizza and salad dinner. Celery (my new best friend!) red bell pepper, Romaine, and shredded cheese.

All mixed up in my Big Purple Bowl…I love these salads!

After my trip to the produce market…

Zucchini, yellow squash, garlic, onion, broccoli and veggie broth.  I accidentally left out the World’s Biggest Potato which would be the base of this dish.

All chopped up and cooking away!

The previously mentioned World’s Biggest Potato!  I microwaved it and of course I cut it up, but forgot to take a photo…Doh!

All cooked up and all dressed up with shredded 2% cheese and the ever-present sriracha sauce.  Due to the size of the potato and the amount of veggies I used, when I was finished and ready to burst, I made Ralph laugh by saying, “I don’t think I have to eat again for the rest of my life!”  I was so full, but it was so tasty…I Had to finish it!

So that What I Ate Wednesday for this week.  Be sure to go over to Peas & Crayons to read all of the other bloggers and leave some comments…We all love comments!

Happy What I Ate Wednesday!!

  1. God you’re doing a fantastic job of eating plenty of greens! I always over do the portion size when it comes to veggies, but being fit to burst with veg can’t be a bad thing! 🙂

  2. Thanks for stopping by my blog. Looks like you didn’t have a problem of eating your greens for the day 😉 Have a great day.

  3. I was a vegetarian for 7 years and although I eat meat now, it’s pretty rare. I am much more drawn to tons of veggies, lentils, beans and whole grains. I been known to reuse salad leftovers as well.

    • Thanks for visiting, Michelle! Glad you like “Broken Cookies Don’t Count.” It’s an old phrase I used to use when I was a Weight Watchers leader. It stuck with me all these years and I thought it was appropriate when I started the blog. Please visit again!
