WIAW #77 Eating ALL The Veg!

Hello friendly friends and happy Wednesday!

No time for lengthy intros today, so instead we'll jump straight into the food! Which is what we're all here for any way ;)

Thanks as always to Peas and Crayons for this awesome weekly link-up that brings so many bloggers together and produces so much meal inspo!! :)

Now onto the eats- WIAW style!

Breakfast: 7:15 am
Started the day off on a great, healthy and utterly delicious foot with a big green smoothie and some wholemeal crumpets with home-made cashew butter
 Into the vitamix went 1 chopped frozen banana, a small handful chopped frozen zucchini, half a chopped, frozen juicy orange, 1 large handful of spinach, one large handful kale, 3 big scoops greek yoghurt, 1/2 cup water- whazzed until smooth:

 Beautiful cashew butter:

 And crumpets!
 So gooood!! :D

 I love breakfasts where I sneak in extra veggies and have no idea while I'm eating it. Instead just getting the awesome fresh and fudgy tastes of a well rounded brekky!

Snack: 11:00am
Peas. You know it and I know it. Why fix something that isn't broken?

Lunch: 1:15pm
Lunch was a quick throw-together meal with veg, grain and protein:

 Super easy and super delicious. It may look a little plain to some but I crave plain foods on the regular!
 Millet + steamed greens + mixed fur beans + lentils

Snack: 4:00pm

Came home, realised I was STARVING, fixed up a snack of fruit and soy milk!

Dinner: 6:50pm
Dinner was an old favourite where I don't have to put too much effort in and can get other stuff done while it's cooking:

 Roast veg (pumpkin, potato, parsnip, swede and sweet potato) with spinach and lentils.

After dinner I had a square of 90% cocoa Lindt chocolate- yum!


  1. I've never tried adding zucchini to my smoothies but I hear people add it to things like oatmeal all the time and it gives it more volume. I'll definitely have to try it!

    1. Liz,
      I definitely love the fact that it gives more volume without impacting taste- more food, right!? Definitely give it a go!! :)

  2. I love zucchini in smoothies! They are so sweet and nutty - perfect add. :)

    1. I know right! I only just experienced adding zucchini to smoothies a few months ago and now I'm hooked!! :D

  3. I love cashew butter so, so much I try not to have it in my house because i'll eat it all at once!

    1. Morgan,
      That is why I only allow myself to make it on rare occasions when I have bought a bag of cashews on sale- it's just too good! (especially in baked sweet potatoes!)

  4. love your smoothie! I miss my blender and smoothies so much :( i love adding zucchini, turmeric, celery and ginger to smoothies!

    1. Masala girl,
      I don't know what I would do without my blender!!
      Also, I love the idea of adding things like tumeric and celery etc. I just haven't quite worked up the courage to do so yet! :P
