Eating, Drinking, and BEING Green!

Happy Wednesday!

Or more importantly,

Happy What I Ate Wednesday!

If you’re new to the idea, What I Ate Wednesday is a weekly link up party hosted by my gal Jenn over at Peas & Crayons. It’s the time where all us bloggers get together and showcase our drool-worthy eats. If you’re interested in joining in on the fun, take a look at this page for the info!

In honor of the last week of our green-themed Wednesdays, I thought I’d show you guys how some green managed to make it’s way into my meals yesterday.

I woke up yesterday morning with an INTENSE craving for French toast…so I whipped some up with the last of my whole wheat sourdough loaf, topped it with some overripe super sweet banana slices and drizzled on the syrup!

Although I seriously thought about mixing Incredible Greens into my syrup, I decided not to scare the crap out of you guys and opted for a glass instead alongside my mug of steamy hot [black] coffee…x 2!

and prepare to be amazed!

Lunch was actually focussed a bit more on the greens…I used my farmer’s market kale to make a massaged kale salad with carrots using the orange muscat vinegar I picked up at Trader Joe’s a couple of months ago. I also baked up a sweet potato while I dug into my French toast breakfast, and packed it along with some yogurt and granola for my “dessert.”

With my first bite of sweet potato (is it weird that I actually prefer them cold?), I was reminded how much I LOVE baked sweet potatoes…

I really need to make them more often.

Then I started taking little bites of everything until I had the idea to throw them all in the same bowl…yep, sounds weird, but I’m telling you, all those flavors together with the creamy sweet potato and yogurt, chew of the kale, and the crunch of the granola?

Absolute Heaven!

Ok, so technically I didn’t have a green vegetable for my snack, but my pistachios were green AND they were in my favorite reusable bag which is both green and GREEN!

And I’m sorry, but is that not the most beautiful apple you’ve ever seen?

Dinner was a quick throw together of ingredients 5 minutes after I walked in the door after work…gotta love those late night shifts!

I mashed up some white beans, stirred in some salsa and shredded cheddar, stuffed it in a tortilla and in 5 minutes I had a perfectly cheesy (and very messy) quesadilla!

For a little veggie action, I snacked on some [unpictured] cauliflower dipped in spicy mustard and steamed some asparagus to go with my ‘dilla…not sure why, but I love asparagus paired with Mexican-spiced food…such a great combo!

And as for my water count for the day, I surprised myself by drinking almost 4 LITERS!

Woo hoo!

All in all, a very delicious and GREEN day…just the way I like it!

What is the last green thing you ate?

What is your favorite green veggie?

Ok, I just realized how hard that was for me to answer, so I’m totally not going there! 😉
