WIAW: Green Power

Hi Friends!

Can you believe it’s Wednesday already? You know what that means…Another WIAW!

As part of National Nutrition Month, I’ve giving a presentation tomorrow that focuses on the benefits of green vegetables. How fitting with this month’s WIAW theme right?

So I thought I’d give you a sneak peek of my presentation :)

I’m actually giving this presentation tomorrow morning for some clients at one of the organizations I volunteer with and I’m giving another presentation in the evening to a group of college girls about healthy eating while living in the dorms! I’ll give you a recap of that one next week!

Anyways, on to the eats. This week I’ve kinda been stuck on repeat…

I’ve been eating pretty much the exact same thing every single day for lunch #1: Greek yogurt, sliced pear, almonds, granola, chia seeds.

I’ve been eating breakfast foods for breakfast, again for lunch, and sometimes again for dinner:

Those are my favorite pancakes (please note that the recipe is posted in a post that also included a giveaway-that giveaway is over…so don’t try to enter it!).

When I wasn’t eating breakfast 3x a day, I did make a few dinners…including this pizza (which I posted about yesterday), a black bean burger topped with an egg, avocado, tomato and cheese- with a side of curried sweet potato soup from the freezer, and a some baked spaghetti that was not my fav.

I also whipped up some blackberry banana fro-yo topped with butterscotch chips to stave off a fro-yo craving one night…and I gave in to the little girl scouts selling cookies at the pet store and bought two boxes!

I’ve also been LOVING my smoothies this week!

Do you ever get stuck on repeat?

  1. What a cool presentation! I can’t wait to hear about the healthy eating one too.

    I totally get in ruts. Like the fact that I have a smoothie EVERY morning. It’s not that warm. I need to have some oats. Tomorrow. Maybe. Or a beet-pineapple smoothie. 😉

  2. I get in ruts occasionally but like to look to other blogs and recipe books for inspiration.

  3. Such a great post! The effort you went to! The only thing I repeatedly eat is my night time snack…everything else changes! Prunes, apricots, dark chocolate and grapes….it’s my only constant! :)

  4. Pancakes are best for lunch 😉
    I do get stuck on repeat, sometimes I need to force myself to do something entirely different to get out my rut.

  5. I love breakfast for dinner and I ALWAYS get stuck on repeat! I like what I like and that’s what I tend to eat.

  6. Oh I definitely get stuck in repeat … especially when it comes to my breakfast! 😉 I can’t believe that I’m not sick of my “peanut butter and banana on whole-wheat toast” yet! 😉

  7. Your presentation looks great, good luck with it! :) I get stuck on repeat ALL the time, but I never really mind it. I’m a creature of habit! 😛

  8. I totally get stuck on repeat and sometimes I find comfort in it because I don’t have to think about what I’m going to make haha. Then I usually get incredibly sick of it after a bit and HAVE to make something else :)

  9. YES! I sometimes always feel like I’m on on repeat when it comes to meals. I have oatmeal, granola and chia seeds and coffee for breakfast every day, soup for lunch every day, and then something for dinner. But brinner (breakfast for dinner) is a weekly occurrence in our house! I just love it. So much fiber, whole grains and protein are in breakfast, so why not eat it more than once a day? :) You had a week of yummy eats. I NEED to try that pizza and the suggestion of stuffing mushrooms with goat cheese and cranberries. holy yum!

  10. I am, quite often, “stuck on repeat,” but that usually means I’m just happy with what I’m eating…and there’s nothing wrong with that!

    Good luck with your presentation…I’m VERY interested in the one you are giving to college-aged women, and can’t wait to hear more about that!

  11. I love eating breakfast foods for lunch and dinner! haha yours look delicious!!!

  12. I’m almost always on repeat – but I don’t think that’s a bad thing if you’re eating healthy! I want to eat what I like :)

  13. I love breakfast for any meal of the day! So yummy.

    Your presentations look great! I hope they go well. At my school, we are having a Nat’l Nutrition Month Information Table set up with a focus on Debunking Nutrition Myths. I’ve got a shift at the table next week, I’m so excited.

    I pinned your pizza recipe, it looks amazing!

  14. Haha I definitely get stuck on repeat….usually eating smoothies and oatmeal until my head explodes! I loooove the images from your Let’s Go Green presentation. Would you mind if I included those images and/or a link to them (because of course I’ll give you full credit) in my next Mindful Tips post? I think my readers would love them!

  15. Good luck!! And yes, I do the same thing. I find a few concoctions that I love and keep making them often because they are so good! I love these things you have been eating. And must try your pancakes!!!

    I REALLY need to work on incorporating more veggies into my life – I don’t eat no where near enough!

  18. It’s completely okay to eat the same thing repeatedly, when it’s good and you’re craving it – who cares! :) So cool that you’re giving two presentations on healthy eating – good luck!

  22. I do get in ruts from time to time, but it always comes to a close when one day I eat something and I think “I am sooooo over this.” Then said item leaves my life for a while! Sometimes you just got to eat up what you are loving even if it is on repeat:) Your fro yo looks fabulous!

  25. Your pizza was definitely a winner! I am so making it!

  26. Mmmm green smoothies. I have one every day. Loooove.
    I do get stuck on repeat, but I try REALLY hard not to. For me, when that happens, I get bored.. which means I tend to eat bad out of frustration. Keeping it mixed up helps me stay excited, so I strive for that.

  27. I definitely get in a rut for breakfast usually oatmeal.

  29. I’m currently stuck in repeat! I eat the same breakfast (oatmeal, protein powder, chia, banana, and raisins) everyday (and sometimes twice a day…) because I love it so much…fingers crossed I don’t get sick of it anytime soon!

  1. […] Most days though, I’m happy with my combination of a few frozen peaches and berries, a giant handful of spinach, several scoops of plain greek yogurt, some ice cubes, a splash of OJ and some chia seeds. […]
