What I Ate Wednesday || Vegetarian Style

Today is Day 16 of my 10-Day [and Now Beyond] Vegetarian Challenge. At some point I will stop referring to it as a challenge. Maybe after 30-days?

On the menu…

Morning coffee :)

Green Monster Smoothie
2 cups fresh spinach, 1 scoop protein powder, 1 frozen banana, 1 teaspoon cinnamon, 1/2 cup Greek Yogurt, 1 tablespoon chia seeds, 3 ice cubes

Homemade Endurance Crackers and Creamy Greek Yogurt Hummus.  Awesome snack!! The hummus is seriously the best I’ve ever made.

Broccoli Cole Slaw
2 cups, broccoli slaw, roasted walnuts, fruit of your choice (pomegranate this time) and homemade mustard vinaigrette

Green Monster Juice
2 cups spinach, 1 pear, 1 apple, 1 celery stalk, 1 tablespoon flax, 1 bunch kale

Baked Cauliflower Poppers. While making dinner we tried this new recipe (photo is before baking). Even my son, the pickiest eater ever, likes these! You can find the recipe at Delighted Momma.

Grilled Butternut Squash Pizza. This recipe would work with whatever squash is in season. A recipe from one of my favorite foodie blogs, The Healthy Foodie.

Yeah, I think after 30 days I can safely consider the challenge a permanent lifestyle change.

Off to workout and get ready for work. Have a fabulous day!

What have you eaten this week? Have you ever considered becoming a vegetarian?
