What I Ate Wednesday

by danielle on February 13, 2013

Happy Wednesday! Welcome back to another What I ate Wednesday! Hosted by Jenn over at Peas and Crayons. This month is about loving our veggies so what a great excuse to get in more vegetables. Here are some of my favorite meals from the past week!

Breakfasts have been these protein, egg muffins I made on Sunday.

Oh these muffins and the sweet potato fries look so good! And I am jealous on Sophie’s happiness about the snow. I can not stand it anymore – how many days until summer again – or at least spring? :-)

Me neither Lucie! I am going crazy with this cold weather! I want the sunshine!

Aww, Sophie always makes me smile to my ears!
And of all your foods I’d pick the beef stew! I’m freezing lately here. :D
I’m a fan of all vegetables. Anything works for me. Just love that crunch. However anything with avocado is the best combination. So here I picked – avocado salads!

I’ve been freezing too so I’m trying to go for warm and filling foods!

I made a monster salad the other night that combined raw and roasted veggies . . . it was so good! The two textures/temperatures of the food made it really satisfying. :)

I love adding cooked veggies in my salads! Something about it makes it more satisfying to me!

I was just thinking last night that I need to make more salads. Not boring salads though. I was thinking of massaged kale and mandarine oranges… Something like that. What do you think of the chocolate Zico?

danielle February 13, 2013 at 1:36 pm

Sounds amazing! I love adding fruit in my salads! I love the chocolate zico. I don’t have it all the time cause of the sugar but every once in a while I’ll get it! It reminds me of chocolate milk lol!

I can’t wait to try those muffins! Fruit makes in salad better, in my opinion and Kind bars are awesome! Happy WIAW, Danielle!

danielle February 13, 2013 at 1:37 pm

I totally agree! I always put fruit in my salads!

That’s so perfect! Sophie definitely blends in a bit!

Way to tease us with those muffins… no cool, Ha Ha :)

My dinner last night was pretty awesome, and full of vegetables.

danielle February 13, 2013 at 1:37 pm

Hahaha sorry girl! Recipe will be up soon!

Hannah @ CleanEatingVeggieGirl February 13, 2013 at 1:35 pm

I am excited for the protein muffin recipe. That sounds like a perfect quick and easy breakfast or snack recipe!

My most veggie-ful meal this week was spaghetti squash “pasta” with sauce, zucchini, broccoli, peppers, and onions, and butternut squash on the side…veggie overload?? Never! ;)

Anna @AnnaTheApple February 13, 2013 at 2:51 pm

All your quinoa meals look so good. I need to start using quinoa a bit more but I get impatient with how long it takes to cook!
Awww I just adore Sophie, she’s so cute. Our dog loves the snow and just bounds through it like a crazy pooch. I love Sophie’s little jacket as well, bless her.

danielle February 13, 2013 at 6:28 pm

I always cook a big batch of quinoa on Sunday so that I don’t have to cook it during the week :)

Kierston February 13, 2013 at 2:52 pm

Every meal is packed with veggie pretty much :) I’m doing good!

danielle February 13, 2013 at 6:29 pm

Oh no! That is so sad! Where’s spring?!

Reply

Nadja February 13, 2013 at 3:37 pm

i want summer too! I can’t wait! The other day i tried a “Veggie chili” recipe, it was a vegan chili that looked a bit like a soup and it was SO delicious! I’m definitely going to try this again!

Reply

danielle February 13, 2013 at 6:30 pm

That sounds so awesome! Definitely a great meal!

jessiebearwhat February 13, 2013 at 3:43 pm

that stew looks like it’d make me feel so warm and cozy :) )

Reply

danielle February 13, 2013 at 6:29 pm

It definitely did that for me!

I’ve been doing way better with veggies this week since I’ve been trying to base all of our dinners around greens — “power bowls”!!

Reply

danielle February 13, 2013 at 6:30 pm

Sounds awesome! Great way to get in those greens!

Reply

Lisa February 13, 2013 at 4:16 pm

Yum, muffins. Can’t wait for that recipe! I’ve been so obsessed with them lately.
Best veggie packed meal? Hm, it has to be either kabocha (I’m seriously obsessed) or soup!

Reply

danielle February 13, 2013 at 6:30 pm

Me too such a quick and easy breakfast!

Alex @ therunwithin February 13, 2013 at 4:18 pm

the sweater is adorable. I love how your meal prep really shows in that you have such fresh meals daily that look so freaking good

Thanks so much Alex!

Amanda @ .running with spoons. February 13, 2013 at 4:48 pm

Eek! Your delicious looking veggie meals put me to shame – my diet has been seriously lacking in the veggie department lately, but I blame that on winter and the fact that my stomach doesn’t like them. I still try to get in a salad every day, but calling it a salad is being pretty generous because, really, it’s just a bunch of basic veggies thrown together in a bowl ;)

Reply

danielle February 13, 2013 at 6:31 pm

It’s all about finding a balance that works for you! I’m not the biggest veggie fan myself!

Yum to all of your eats! I love adding quinoa to soups and stews, makes it super thick and satisfying! And your pup is super cute :D

That’s such a great idea! I’ve been on such a big quinoa kick lately!

I haven’t tried chocolate coconut water yet! How do you like it?

Your beef stew looks so good – that’s such a comforting winter meal!

The best veggie-packed meal I had this week was pork tenderloin with a beet and carrot wheatberry salad and massaged kale on the side!

Reply

danielle February 14, 2013 at 1:04 am

The coconut water is great! I love it!

salads are the best! and sweet potato fries. and I really want to try to Kind bars too!

Reply

Definitely try them Alysia! They’re one of my favorites!

Sara @ Nourish and Flourish February 14, 2013 at 7:07 am

Ooh, what are your thoughts about chocolate Zico? I’ve been thinking about buying a carton, but always chicken out because I’m not a huge fan of the plain flavor. I tend to love chocolate everything, though, so I’m guessing I’d probably love it.

The best veggie-packed meal was probably my dinner tonight. I made an egg scramble with mushrooms, spinach, garlic and goat cheese, and enjoyed a baked sweet potato and an arugula/truffle oil salad alongside it. I think I may have packed four servings of vegetables onto my plate! :)

Reply

danielle February 14, 2013 at 5:24 pm

I don’t love the plain coconut water either but the chocolate is amazing! Definitely give it a try!
