I’m really starting to love this whole What I Ate Wednesday thing.
Not only has it introduced me to some super cute new blogs, but it also helps keep me accountable with the choices I make during the day. I mean…no one wants to see pictures of me stuffing myself with snickers ice cream bars and Cheetos, right?
No…you want to see beautiful photos of gorgeous fruits and vegetables!
So, let’s go ahead and get started, shall we?
Thanks, of course, to the precious Jenn at Peas & Crayons for holding us all accountable and helping us realize that stuffing handfuls of veggies in our faces really is fun!
And balls….balls are super fun too.
Breakfast: A freshly squeezed juice made with
green apple, grapes, celery, spinach, & lemon.
This was served alongside a giant mug of pumpkin spice coffee
with one packet of Nunaturals stevia, and tons of ice water.
Snack 1: a couple of slices of homemade
roast beast that I forgot to take a photo of. Whoopsie!
Lunch: A bowl of fluffy brown rice with freshly
steamed broccoli, peas, tri-colored peppers,
and fresh ginger with a bit of herbs and spices.
Oh, and tons more ice water and a banana for dessert!
Supper: Another piping hot bowl of brown rice topped
with the best roasted veggies on the planet (recipe below)
and a drizzle of sesame oil, lite soy, and teriyaki sauces
with tons and tons of ice water.
Snack 2: A mug of green candy cane tea w/ one Nunaturals stevia packet…
and, of course, tons more ice water.
Ok, now for the recipe.
This is a recipe I have seen tons of times on Pinterest, so I really have no idea who to give credit to. I do, however, think this recipe is absolutely out of this world, and I am going to have a really, really, REALLY hard time making my veggies any other way ever again. The original idea swirling around also calls for finishing the veggies with freshly grated paremesan cheese which I completely omit b/c it is absolutely perfect without it.
Seriously, minions, if y’all haven’t made this yet make it tonight…I promise you won’t regret it.
Getting to know you…
