What I Ate Wednesday, and Veggies!

A couple weeks ago I realized I had been pretty bad about eating my veggies lately (mostly out of laziness) and I told myself I would focus on including them in more meals. If you read last weeks What I Ate Wednesday, you probably noticed veggies were pretty slim. I just haven't been feeling them and I make sure to take my vitamins and greens so I think I'm covered as far as nutrients go. Anyway,  I got a comment asking if "I really only ate veggies once a day". I couldn't help but laugh for two reasons- 1. Why in the world would I lie about being a horrible veggie eater?! and 2. I had just told myself I needed to eat more and totally got called out. So, for whoever anonymous was last week, thank you because you made me get butt in gear! 4 out of 6 meals is a big improvement. 
Here's what my veggie filled day looked like: 

- Egg white omelette with spinach, onion, and mushroom and 2 pieces Ezekiel toast 
- The return of oats! Oats, strawberries, protein powder, almond milk, cinnamon and stevia. 
- Buffalo meat balls with sweet potato and broccoli 
- Chicken, sweet potato and a side salad 
- Dinner was tomato basil turkey meatballs with spaghetti squash and broccoli- If you're one of my online clients, this meal may look familiar :) 
- I wrapped up the day with a little casein, peanut butter, and almond milk blended with ice.

  2. I look at vitamins and greens powders as 'supplements' and not staples.....its better if you get vitamins and good stuff from eating actual food...so this WIAW looks awesome!

  3. Hi littleb, you must get this question alot but I haven't seen you cover it since I've been following your blog. I'm sure you've considered competing - just wondering if you would ever do a show in the future or have you decided it's not for you?

  4. LOL that's funny. I am the same way, I love veggies but unless I think about it they seem to get left out. I think because it takes so much prep work and cook time. I try to make an egg white omelet just about every morning and load it up with spinach and other veggies to at least get them in first thing.
