Happy Wednesday! We’re halfway through the week! It’s a new month which means a new theme for What I Ate Wednesday! Big thanks to Jenn for hosting every week!

Awwwww, all looks so delicious! How do you do it that your eggs look so nice? Mine are a messy disaster! I usually throw a handful spinach into every meal no matter if there are already veggies or not.

Haha not quite sure! Although I do only take pictures of the ones that come out nice! I promise some are disasters!

Everything looks delicious, as always. I will be honest… I was quite shocked not to see a whole page worth of eggs haha.

I love a salad filled with a ridiculous amount of vegetables.

I try to increase my veggies all the time. Usually that means throwing a handful of spinach in whatever I’m making. I’m not creative at all! I also eat the same things over and over again. Hello paleo pancake. I like routine :)

I love spinach too! It’s the one veggie I’m okay with adding to everything! I’m such a creature of habit too! Nothing wrong with that ;)

I’ve been totally loving eggs with coconut oil lately!!

Reply

danielle November 7, 2012 at 5:03 pm

Me too! One of my favorite combos!

Kim@hungryhealthygirl November 7, 2012 at 1:32 pm

Can’t wait for the veggie soup recipe! I’ve been sneaking veggies into my breakfast scramble or roasting them up for a quick side dish.

Reply

danielle November 7, 2012 at 5:03 pm

That’s a great idea! I love having extra roasted veggies on hand!

Sarah November 7, 2012 at 1:33 pm

Well this all looks amazing :) Loving the Justin’s Vanilla Almond Butter, just wish they sold it at more than Whole Foods!!!! Eggs+coconut oil+greens is always a good choice. My favorite way to eat veggies is paired alondside some source of protein, usually chicken or eggs. Favorite meal egg/kale omelet paired with chicken sausage and salsa!

danielle November 7, 2012 at 5:04 pm

Thanks Sarah! That meal sounds awesome! I love eggs and kale! Just had that for lunch yesterday!

I could definitely take a lesson from you when it comes to varying up my breakfasts and trying to get more veggies in. I’ve been eating the same yogurt mess breakfast for months now, and when it comes to veggies? Eeep! I’m slacking! BUT… in my defense… I just don’t crave them as much in the winter, and honestly… I find that my stomach is a lot happier without so many veggies. I still do love my baby carrots and cherry tomatoes though :D

danielle November 7, 2012 at 5:05 pm

This was the first week I’ve had anything other than eggs for breakfast in a long time! I tend to get stuck in routine with my meals! I’m not a huge fan of veggies either to be honest! I do love some baby carrots though!

Jess @ JessieBearWhatWillYouWear November 7, 2012 at 2:45 pm

My fav way to eat veggies is definitely roasted. Yum! Those veggie tacos look so yummy.

Reply

danielle November 7, 2012 at 5:05 pm

Mine too! I love making a big batch of roasted veggies for the week!

Liana@RunToMunch November 7, 2012 at 2:54 pm

Love the veggie taco idea! I’ll finally have a use for all that lettuce I took from my garden yesterday.

mmm the protein muffin with almond butter looks so good! I just bought Justin’s Maple Almond Butter for the first time this week I haven’t tried it yet though but I’m pretty excited to! I’ve also been trying to up my veggies lately I feel like I really got off track with that!

danielle November 7, 2012 at 5:06 pm

Ahh you will love it! It’s my favorite!

Lisa November 7, 2012 at 4:05 pm

Can I come over and eat all your meals?;) We totally have the same taste buds. I need to start trying out new breakfasts I’m always eating oat bran, buckwheat, or pancakes. Ha ha. My favorite way to eat veggies is roasted all the way!!

danielle November 7, 2012 at 5:06 pm

Of course! I know I’m always obsessed with your meals on your blog! Maybe we could swap meals for a day! I love roasted veggies too!

Court Star @ StarSystemz November 7, 2012 at 5:29 pm

I am a BIG veggie puree gal and love soups. I basically make my protein shakes and add tons of greens so I get a ton of greens in a tasty treat! I also juice at least once a day which takes about 3 servings of veggies to make one juice! Have you tried juicing? Love and Shine CourtStar

Reply

danielle November 8, 2012 at 5:58 pm

I’m dying to get a juicer actually! I think it would be great for me!

I roast veggies, sautee them and steam them. Then I just serve them with some meat. Meat + veggies is my basic easy meal plan. I also have a bunch of Moosewood cookbooks from my vegetarian days that I love! They’re full of creative vegetarian dishes for every meal and occasion and vegetables are the star of the dishes. I totally recommend these cookbooks – my favorite is the original. I also find that vegetables make perfect soups.

danielle November 8, 2012 at 6:00 pm

Sounds like a perfect meal plan to me!

Thanks Chelsea! The recipe for the tacos will be up soon!

Brittany @ Delights and Delectables November 7, 2012 at 11:28 pm

Your eggs make me hungry!! lol I love my veggies in soup in the fall/winter. In the warmer months I so lots of smoothies with spinach and salads!

Reply

Brittany @ Itty Bits of Balance November 8, 2012 at 1:07 am

That’s funny because I’ve really been loving yogurt bowls for breakfast lately too! They’re pretty filling :D

Reply

danielle November 8, 2012 at 5:40 pm

Yes I love them! I still find my eggs more filling but they’re too good not to have!

Reply

Kierston November 8, 2012 at 2:37 am

I love raw veggies! Perfect crunch :)

Reply

danielle November 8, 2012 at 5:40 pm

Yum! Baby carrots are my favorite!

Court Star @ StarSystemz November 8, 2012 at 4:38 am

Loving granola right now! maybe a little too much..What is sprinkled on top of the veggie tacos? They look delicious! Love and Shine CourtStar

Reply

danielle November 8, 2012 at 5:42 pm

I sprinkled hemp seeds on top of them! I’ve been loving them lately!

Sara @ Nourish and Flourish November 8, 2012 at 6:55 am

I love Siggi’s yogurt! It was actually the Greek yogurt that made me fall in love with Greek yogurt. I rarely buy it now because it’s so expensive, but it still holds a special place in my heart. ;)

Everything looks delicious–especially that almond butter-topped protein muffin. I have a hard time digesting large amounts of vegetables (with the exception of leafy greens–I can eat cups and cups), so I usually cook mine really well and/or puree them into soups. I’ve also recently discovered Vega nutrition shakes, which are packed with vegetables. I love that I can satisfy 50% of many of my vitamin/mineral RDA’s/DRI’s in one swig! :)

Reply

danielle November 8, 2012 at 5:42 pm

Oh that sounds awesome! I didn’t know that about Vega! I’m going to have to try that! Does it taste good too?
