WIAW~Where’s The Green?

So here we are half way through the week already.  Boy, for some reason, this one has gone quickly!  But let’s slow down a minute and smell the wonderful things cooking over at Peas & Crayons hostessed by the lovely Jenn!  Yes, it’s What I Ate Wednesday…the place for all the fabulous Foodies to meet.  Please be sure to travel over there, read some blogs, bookmark some recipes and Leave Some Comments.  We really do all live for your comments! (I’m not even kidding!)

Peas and Crayons

We’re still doing our best to be Green for WIAW.  As you know, I’m vegetarian and it’s almost always Green around here.  Those of you who visit BCDC regularly, you sort of know what you’ll be getting from me in the food area.  When it comes to other things….I’m pretty scattered so you never know what you’ll find!  You rarely get one entire day of food, I’m usually covering a meal here, a meal there.  So in no particular order…

Ralph wasn’t feeling well or Monday so he actually had oatmeal for dinner!  I threw together some whole wheat pasta, zucchini, yellow squash, some broccoli which might have passed its prime, garlic, crock pot black beans and diced tomatoes with green chilies.

Topped with shredded cheese and sriracha sauce…So Good.  I’m thinking I need to buy stock in sriracha sauce, what do you think?!?

I needed an evening snack and since I had made a crock pot full of apples…

So tasty topped with fat-free vanilla yogurt! Tastes so decadent, but this only counts for 2 Points (raisins and yogurt) Yum!

Couldn’t resist some more apples and raisins for breakfast on Tuesday morning.

My recent favorite mixture of oatmeal and oatbran with Splenda and almond milk…crowned with apples and raisins from the crock pot.  This was so tasty and filling.

Breakfast was so filling, I didn’t feel like anything more than Greek yogurt for lunch.

My wonderful Chobani from my Good Deal Saturday!  Black Cherry for today.  I still have a hard time believing I get 14 grams of protein from that little pot, not that I’m complaining of course!

It wouldn’t be WIAW on BCDC without a Salad!  Looks pretty familiar.

Romaine, plum tomatoes, celery, shredded cheese and crock pot black beans.

The new wrinkle in recent weeks…

Making my own salad dressing.  I’ve done it a few times, but I think I’m going to stick with it and get creative. 1 Tbsp of olive oil, 1.5 Tbsps of red wine vinegar, 1 Tbsp of honey, 1 Tbsp of Dijon mustard and 1 Tbsp of water.  I add the water to extend it because as you can see I make a Big Salad!

So very tasty in my Big Purple Bowl.

That’s What I Ate Wednesday for this week.  Green enough for you?  I do my best!  Now all you have to do is travel over to Peas & Crayons  to savor all of the wonderful foodie offerings and leave some comments.  Make this an outstanding WIAW for some other happy bloggers.

Have a Great Day!  Happy Green What I Ate Wednesday!

  1. I never met a salad I didn’t like! And you are the Queen of Salads!

  2. I tried your dressing the other day! it was a smaller salad, so I cut it back… tsp olive oil, 2 tsp dark honey, and a tbsp balsamic vinegar, with some water at the end. it was delicious! I love balsamic, but the sweetness from the honey cut it and made it even better.

    • Hi Cutie! So glad you like the dressing. I’m going to keep trying them, hoping to get creative! There was an excllent Greek salad dressin in the WW weekly book last week that I want to try. You didn’t get one, but I’ll share the recipe when I make it. Do we get to see you Saturday? Hugs!

  3. I love the idea of doing the apples in the crock pot!

    I just got my first bottle of sriracha that I won in a giveaway and am slowly becoming addicted!!! My hubby loves it too!

  5. You definitely got a good amount of greens in Fran, not to worry 🙂

  6. Your pasta dish looks really yummy. I still need to work on my crock pot beans, the first step would be to soak teh beans the night before! Why can I not remember to do this!?
    Happy Wednesday 🙂

  7. This all looks awesome! And you can never have enough hot sauce – I have sriracha on my grocery list right now. Need to stock up this weekend!

    This is my first time here – I LOVE the name of your blog. Have a wonderful day lady 🙂

  8. I really want to make a crock pot of apples…I bet they would taste divine with a few graham crackers crumbled on the top!

  9. I need to eat dinner NOW after looking at all your photos – I’m so hungry 🙂

  10. That pasta dish looks incredible. Nothing like a nice big salad too!

  11. I love roasted apples, especially with spice and ice cream or yoghurt, mmmm… and porridge is always good for dinner if I’m feeling poorly- hope Ralph’s feeling better now!
    I love the look of your cheesy vegetable pasta 🙂

  12. You should definitely buy stock in sriracha! That has to be my favourite condiment of all time. Also, I love your big purple bowl salads. They always look so tasty and satisfying.

  13. LOVE crock pot apples! I need to make them more often! 😀
