It’s easy not easy being green – at least sometimes. While I had the best intentions on living up to this month’s WIAW motto and getting more creative with veggies … I failed. Sorry, Jenn! That’s not to say I had forgotten about the veggies completely, though. Here’s to a new What I ate Wednesday edition confession-style – some green, some not quite.
Confession #1: However hard I try to imagine them being delicious I can’t wrap my head around the idea of green smoothies. Does having Green Monster casseroles regularly count as compensation?
Confession # 2: If going green means relying on seasonal produce only I’m dropping out of the game. Sorry I’m not sorry but starting the day without Blueberry Baked Oats seems almost impossible.
Confession #3: Bok choy may or may not be my new favourite leafy green. With its crunchy stalks and tender leaves it’s been making a sneaky appearance in just about every lunch.
Confession #4: Sometimes the green in my diet comes from a not quite natural source …
… and I’m not feeling guilty about it at all. Sure, these have a few unnecessary ingredients but it’s all about balance, right?!
Confession #5: Blueberries weren’t the only exception in terms of not living quite seasonal lately. Yes, I caved and bought strawberries when they were on offer. But I learned my lesson the hard way: Out-of-season strawberries do NOT taste good – mark my words. Covering them in almond flour and maple helped a little.
