We’re mixing it up a little bit the next few weeks throughout February with the WIAW posts, and I’m super stoked about it! Jen, the founder of WIAW, challenged us to “veg-ify” our posts throughout the month of February to really emphasize eating and LOVING vegetables. I love my vegetables, so I have no problem promoting some veggie love!
Today’s WIAW post will be featuring yesterday’s eats. I’ll also be adding in a few tips here and there to help you “sneak” vegetables into your snacks and meals.
(1/3 C. oats, 1/3 C. vanilla soymilk, 1/3 cup water, 1/2 T. flax seeds overnight + half sliced banana & ~1 T. peanut butter added in the morning)
mug of coffee
mid morning snack
chocolate banana protein smoothie
1/2 ripe banana
1/2 scoop vanilla protein powder
1/2 C. 1% milk
1 tablespoon cocoa powder
handful of fresh spinach
Tip: I almost always add in a handful or two of fresh spinach to my smoothies. It may sound gross and/or turn your smoothie a weird color, but it truly is tasteless. I love finishing off my delicious smoothie knowing that I got a serving of vegetables in without even tasting them!
blackbean veggie burger & a hard boiled egg over a bed of spinach and romaine; topped with ketchup
I used Brittany’s Chickpea Burger recipe as a base for my veggie burger, but I used black beans instead of chickpeas. T’was delicious!
Tip: Salads make for endless possibilities when it comes to lunch and dinner options which prevents them from getting too boring. They are an easy way to get in several servings of vegetables too!
roasted sweet potato dipped in ketchup
Tip: Sweet potatoes are considered a super food that are packed with nutrients! Roasting them is my favorite way to eat them.
mid afternoon snack

Tip: A stir fry is an incredibly easy and delicious way to pack in vegetables for a dinner option.
