Happy What I Ate Wednesday!
Thirty weeks? Wow, that went by really fast!
Breakfast: Almond Milk Yogurt with Vanilla Protein Powder and Peaches and Hemp Seeds.
This breakfast is not as exciting as some of my creative scrambles, but it has all the nutrients I need to power my morning workout and work schedule. I am loving this yogurt. I buy it at Wegmans, and add my vanilla vegan protein powder for flavor and added nutrients. It is so good.
I had a planned grocery trip for after I dropped Mya to school. I did not want to go hungry. This small bowl was just satisfying enough to get me through. I got back about 10:45am and then I was starving. So, I had an early lunch.
Leftover Lasagna. I devoured it so fast, I forgot to take a picture! It was the same lasagna I made a few weeks back with half wheat noodles, half zucchini noodles.
The recipe is here: Very Veggie Lasagna
I decided to try a little meal planning this week. I have never really done that before. With my ever escalating grocery bill, I thought it might be helpful to keep me on track at the store. I don’t know the result yet!
Last night was my first planned meal, Vegetable Beefless Stew. I love making this all fall and winter long. I put everything vegetable I have on hand in it. It is so delicious. I use Seitan as my beef substitute. It works great, you could never tell!
I filled my pot with carrots, onions, celery, two small white potatoes, two sweet potatoes, mushrooms, green beans, peas, corn, diced tomatoes, seitan and tons of herbs and spices. I used a small amount of Better Than Beef seasoning stock and a little arrowroot at the end to thicken it a bit. I get so excited when ever I make this and it turns out tasting like my grandmothers. It is one of my favorite meals.
No dessert yesterday. I had a piece of a granola bar as my something sweet. I plan on making some of these apple muffins today…I will post them later. Remember these? I found one last zucchini hiding in the garden, it is destine to be an apple zucchini muffin, sound like a delicious fate to me!
I am really enjoying this cool weather. I just love Autumn. I am looking forward to making my planned meals this week with include lots of great Fall finds. What is on your menu this week?
Have a great Wednesday!
