WIAW GOES GREEN

CollageWIAWFinal

Happy WIAW and thanks to Jenn for hosting this awesome party each week!!  So far my week has been splendid, my eats on Monday were not loaded with greens, but they sure were good.  Monday started with a Mango protein smoothie, I used hemp seeds for the protein.  Hemp is one of the best sources of easily digestible plant protein and an excellent source of omega fatty acids.   I purchased mangos over the weekend, which just happens to be my second favorite fruit, blackberries are number one, I used one in my morning smoothie.  During mango season I eat them almost everyday, was so glad to see them again, like seeing a long-lost friend.

Lunch as leftover Confetti Pasta Salad, the recipe is from the one and only Jenn at Peas and Crayons, our WIAW host. Just look at all those beautiful colors of the rainbow!  I added kalamata olives, TJ’s mini heirloom tomatoes and nutritional yeast in place of the cheese. This salad Rocks The House, give it a try!

When I got home Monday night I wanted a quick put together meal.  I chopped sweet potatoes and brussel sprouts and sautéed using garlic infused olive oil,  sea salt, cracked black pepper, and allspice. Poured heated TJ’s Sweet Potato Bisque over the veggies and topped it off with vegan cheese. I had originally planned to roast the veggies, but I was hungry and didn’t want to wait that long.  This was my first time putting these foods together and I will definitely do it again, it was so so so good!!!   Late in the afternoon I had a bowl of blackberries with yogurt.

Later, still hungry I made myself a small bowl of cereal using the almond milk I made Sunday. It was the perfect ending to the day.
