WIAW-Discovering A New Veggie

Time for What I Ate Wednesday, but really Tuesday in my case. Thanks to Jenn for all the lovely recipe ideas!

And let's jump right in!

Breakfast started off with the usual overnight oats in my hershey's bowl again. What can I say? I love oats :)
Along with a big glass of lemon water. Pretty much every morning starts this way since lemon water is so so good for you!
Lunch was a tuna salad with lots of carrots. I swear I always end up getting a weird one in my carrot bags.
Some blueberries found their way onto my plate in the afternoon. I'm a sucker for fruit, love berries.
Before dinner my mom and I headed out for a run. It was a HOT and HUMID one. Sheesh, I was a sweaty mess after those three miles.
On the way home we brought my grandparents a Starbucks. Yesterday I was feeling a passion fruit iced tea. I usually get it unsweetened and add my own stevia to it.
While my dinner was heating up I snacked on a rice cake with peanut butter. Such a classic snack, but so satisfying.
The best part of yesterday's food was clearly dinner. Lots of fresh salmon, baked potatoes, and seasoned asparagus.
I have to say I am so glad I found a new green veggie to add to the mix. You can't tell me anyone doesn't get stick of eating broccoli every night at dinner. I see myself eating lots of asparagus over the next couple months. Plus one cup has 4 protein! Pretty cool right?
Dessert was the usual- lean ground turkey. This is a recycled photo, but it's exactly the same thing I eat every night.
 *Question-
What is your least favorite vegetable? Beets are disgusting to me, bleh

  5. I love asparagus! I liked it when I was younger, then went several years where I didn't like it at all, and now I love it again. I eat it a few days a week and love it roasted.

  8. I am not a fan of veggies in general...I know one day my taste buds will like them. Brussel sprouts gross me out.

    1. Brussel sprouts used to freak me out. They are SO much better roasted or grilled.
