Hey guys and Happy What I Ate Wednesday!

I am absolutely loving the new “themes” Jenn has been creating for us party rockers each month. It not only gives us a chance to share our latest ideas for meals and snacks, but also motivates us to eat more veggies!

And with Easter being right around the corner, I hopped right on this month’s challenge!

Starting with my newest overnight oats creation:

Can I interest anyone in some carrot cake for breakfast?

For some reason, I’ve been craving carrot cake like mad crazy lately.

So when I saw this little guy on sale at Publix the other day, this combo almost immediately popped into my head. Unfortunately the date and fig flavors weren’t as pronounced as I thought they would be so I think a vanilla or honey-flavored Greek yogurt would work just as well.

Just don’t forget the coconut and raisin topping…it totally makes it!

Let me just say I was glad I prepped breakfast the night before! You see…apparently, when you hit snooze “x” amount of times (not sure how many that is…I lost count), my alarm clock

SHUTS OFF!!!

So yeah, this is more of what my breakfast looked like…eaten haphazardly in the car…with a BIG mug of black coffee to finish waking me up!

Luckily, I had enough timeΒ made time (priorities people, it’s WIAW!) to snap a pic of my “throw-together lunch” before I practically hopped out the door!

A couple of tablespoons of hummus and the Chobani were mixed together…half eaten with the tuna on some whole wheat French bread and the other half with my bowl-o-veggies!

Obviously, I didn’t get my fill of carrots over breakfast πŸ˜‰

And I know what you’re probably thinking about that tub of pre-made hummus. But hear me out…it’s a brand new flavor and I just HAD to taste it before I attempting to make my own…you know, so I can ensure quality assurance for my version!

On my way home from work, I snacked on a PERFECTLY ripe banana.

Love it when they’re all freckly!

After a quick shower (a must when you work in a hospital) and a bit of chill time with BB, we decided to go out for dinner. When he asked me what I wanted, all I could say was VEGETABLES!Β The first thing that came to mind was Ruby Tuesday. I’m not usually a fan of chain restaurants, but you can’t deny they have a pretty slamming salad bar!

Plate numero uno

Plate numero dos!

I seriously wouldn’t be surprised if I woke up with a cotton tail tomorrow…

How many servings of veggies did YOU get in today?

How do you like your bananas?

  1. That has definitely happened to me with the alarm clock. Then you wake up frantically rushing around, hate that! PErfect that you made overnight oats πŸ˜€

  2. I like freckly nanners too! And even though I’m not a chain restaurant fan, Ruby Tuesdays’ is awesome. They also have a side item thing you can order, and it can be super healthy. (I got steamed broccoli, butternut squash, and some other veggie I don’t remember, haha)

  3. I didn’t know they sell Liberte yogurt in the US! That was one of the first Greek yogurt brands sold in Canada and it’s one of my favourites! I agree the date and fig flavour isn’t the best though. πŸ˜›

    I like my bananas at different stages of ripeness for different purposes… still a bit green for eating them with yogurt & cereal, more speckled for oatmeal, and highly speckled for making banana soft serve!

      Have you tried the peach passionfruit? I tried it the other day and it was surely love at first bite! πŸ˜‰

  4. The carrot cake overnight oats sound amazing!! Thanks for the idea, Heather!

  5. katie says:

    Your oats look bomb πŸ˜‰

    I never tried that flavor of sabra hummus, I need to look for it!!

    happy wednesday! <3

  6. I have to say I’ve never made overnight oats but I am curious to give them a try.

    • kissmybroccoli says:

      Oh you have to try them at least once! I think you either love it or hate it, but for me it was love at first bite! πŸ™‚

  7. Gahh I hate that kind of situation with an alarm clock! You can’t believe it happened and then suddenly you do and the rush begins! Ugh.
    That oatmeal concoction looks mighty tasty dear!

  8. bananas right before they start getting spots–so perfectly yellow πŸ™‚ and cold! and always frozen in my shakes !

  9. looks like you got in a lot of veggies! everything looks delicious!

  10. kris says:

    mmm your breakfast looks delicious! As does everything else πŸ™‚

  11. oh my. your breakfast totally just made me drool. oatmeal + veggies = don’t mind if i do πŸ˜‰

  12. ok i was just on a road trip and desparately searched for a ruby tuesday for their (indeed) slamming salad bar. and those croutons? while certainly not the healthiest pick they are FREAKING AMAZING.

  13. Robyn :) says:

    Not sure how many servings, but I had avocado and sprouts on my sandwich at lunch, spicy pickles(do they count?), about 2 servings of chinese mixed vegetables for dinner and I just snacked on 2 carrots πŸ™‚

    I like my bananas straight, or in cereal or ice cream or in bread.

    • kissmybroccoli says:

      Pickles most definitely count! And I LOVE adding avocado and sprouts to a sandwich…I swear it takes it to a whole other level!

  14. I like my bananas super firm and extra sweet. When they are bright yellow, I’m ready to eat them. Carrot cake oats are the best! Love them!!!

    I eat mine, yours and probably another normal adult’s daily servings of vegetables everyday. I’m a veggie girl all the way.

  15. Ahh your overnight oats look delicious! I might just have to turn them into regular oats though, because I can’t take the cold oats. Blech.
    && Ruby Tuesday salad bar=<3
    I haven't been there in a while, but when I did I used to LOAD my stuff up with cheese…oops πŸ™‚

  16. Talk about veggieloading! You’re definitely going to turn into a bunny. πŸ˜› Those overnight oats look amazing!
