Hey hey guys and gals!
It’s time for another What I Ate Wednesday!
But this time it’s the “Brrrrrrrrrr!” edition!
As always, a big thank you to Jenn of Peas & Crayons for putting this shin-dig together each week!
I’ve mentioned how crummy the weather’s gotten lately, but what I failed to stress was the fact that just a week ago, it was pushing 70 degrees outside with the sun shining so bright you wouldn’t even think of driving without sunglasses…
it “feels like” it’s freezing it IS freezing outside and we haven’t seen the sun in over a week!
Needless to say, my body was craving hot comfort food today!
All starting with my festive red and green breakfast:
Warmed me from my head to my toes!
And yes, I had broccoli in my oat bran…I’ve been craving vegetables like mad lately.
A few hours later, I had a warm solution to my cold snack selection:
Like breakfast, another slightly odd appearance from the vegetable department happened to my lunch…anyone ever tried chili as a salad topper? I love how the heat of the chili wilts the spinach just enough….mmm!
Warm leftover chili on a bed of baby spinach topped with plain Greek yogurt, cheddar cheese, crushed tortilla chips and jalapenos.
Am I the only person that reads that to myself as
Before I left for work, (and braved the elements) I made sure to make a big ol’ mug of this:
When it came time for dinner, all I wanted was a big bowl of hot soup and I wanted it quick!
1 cup water + 1/2 cup veggie broth + sauteed veggies + 1 Tbsp miso
Actually, this was my first time ever trying roasted broccoli…LOVED it!
As far as water consumption goes, I think I squeaked out about 48 ounces (that would be approximately 1500cc, Elise)…could’ve done better, but heck…
I WAS COLD!!
Oh and I totally forgot my multivitamins…oops!
What is your favorite warm food/beverage to have on a super cold day?
What’s the best thing you ate today?
I would have to say dinner was by far the best! Hit.the.spot!
