WIAW~Veggie-rific!

Back on track and in the routine! What I Ate Wednesday is such a fun link up to participate in.  Everyone is positive and the food is so colorful. I get so many great ideas.  Even from the posts with meat…I’m looking at the sides and getting ideas. Thanks as always to the beauteous Jenn at Peas and Crayons for hostessing the food fun fest.  Be sure to check out all of the other linkers when you’re finished here.

What I Ate Wednesday: Love Your Veggies

It’s ALWAYS love your veggies month around here.  Started off the week with a nice crock pot filled with Weight Watchers veggie soup.

Veggie soup

 

This always looks so delicious and it is! Found some red lentils while foraging in the pantry.  They added a nice protein punch.  Yummy altogether!

We went out to lunch with our grandson Alex and his Mom for his birthday.  I started with split pea soup.

Split pea soup

 

Why split pea soup? No Ham!!  Our waitress told me that she grilled 3 different cooks to be sure there was no meat in here.  It was really tasty too. She said that alone should bring us back again.  It will!

Veggie burger salad

 

This salad was supposed to have salami on it but I swapped that for a veggie burger.  Really good!  The waitress bet me I couldn’t finish it.  I won!

Meadows breakfast

 

Breakfast at one of our favorite diners.  This was an egg white omelette with mushrooms, tomatoes, onions and asparagus.  Side of cottage cheese of course.  So good.

On Saturday we splurged and took my sister Ele out for Chinese food.

Chinese veggie delight

 

One of my usual choices-Veggie Delight.  It was very tasty.  The lunch size portion is just right.

One of my favorite weekend treats…

Pepper and egg sandwich

 

Pepper and egg sandwich from our local pizzeria.  It’s supposed to be made with regular green peppers but I ask them to substitute the sweet peppers instead. So good that way.

I’m trying to pump up my protein and I love Greek Yogurt.  At Aldi, I found Fage Greek Yogurt.  At 3 Points, great for an afternoon snack.

Fage

 

I had never tried Fage but the price was right at Aldi.  This was cherry pomegranate.  Very tasty.  I don’t like the shape of the container though because you can’t get all of the fruit out.  I ended up using my finger!  Well worth it.  I have a blueberry-acai waiting for me in the fridge for today’s afternoon snack.

As advertised…Lots of Veggies but that’s really the way it usually is for me.  I love veggies because for me to stay satisfied on Weight Watchers, I need volume.  Veggies give me the volume I need to feel full and stay within my Points. That’s it for me for this week. Be sure to check out the other fantastic foods at Peas and Crayons.

Happy What I Ate Wednesday!

  1. That split pea soup looks delicious! I love blended soups, especially in winter.

  2. A WIAW wouldn’t be complete without a diner omelet, although I think I’d like to tackle that veggie burger sandwich. I bet I could finish the whole thing too.

  3. A WIAW wouldn’t be complete without a shot of the diner omelet, although I’d love to tackle that veggie burger sandwich. I bet I could eat the whole thing too.
