What I Ate Wednesday #66

Hookay sooo... I totally just got back from NYC and... HOLY COW!  I think I'm in love.  In fact, I know it!  Trip photos?  Ummm... you'll have to harass my jet lagged bootay for them another day.  This WIAW's day of eats took place last week before the jet setting, train hopping, and wedding festivities.  So without further rambling adieu, here's a day's worth of face-stuffage from last week.

Breakfast looked a lot like this:
wiaw eggs strawberries clementine
Only it was with a blood orange instead of clementines and scarfed so freakishly fast [at the buttcrack of dawn no less!] that there are no photo of its fluffy, citrus-y gloriousness.  Tragic, I know.  Can't take me anywhere.

Snacks were also pretty fruity:
bananas
only ate one of these bad boys.  eating four in a sitting would be a tad nutty
lemon greek chobani yogurt snack wiaw
if i'm going to eat flavored yogurt, this is what I reach for!
wiaw lunch veggie patch falafel hummus greek yogurt
veggie falafel with roasted red pepper hummus and plain greek yogurt
rice hummus stuffed grape leaves wiaw
hummus and rice stuffed grape leaves
wiaw black bean jalapeno onion mrs renfros habanero cheddar quesadilla guacamole
black bean, jalapeno, onion, and habanero cheddar quesadilla with guac + greek yogurt
Overall a tasty day with more way more fruit than usual!  It must be the warm weather that's influencing my snacking habits... I'm sensing boatloads of salads in my near future.  Also, I'm still trucking along with my goal to "Veg Up with an Extra Cup" of veggies each day all throughout the month, including while on vacation!  It was uber easy days and a little more challenging on others --  I'll show you how I snuck them in while trotting around NYC in a follow-up post.  Count on it!  But for now, let's see what you've been eating lately!

Happy What I Ate Wednesday!

Peas and Crayons

How are you serving up your extra cup of veggies?
Want to join in on the fun?  


Annnnnnd..... Since you made it all the way to the bottom of this post I guess you deserve some sort of sneak peek at my trip eh?  I think so too.  Will a photo of the random guy filming himself singing in the middle of Times Square count?

He's special.
and so are you

    Hi Jenn, I hopped on your WIAW at the last minute this morning but don't quite have my post together as a "real" WIAW follower.  Next week I will do better.  It has been great following your comments at Talia's home Bitesizewellness.com.  Thanks so much for hosting this great hop, I can't wait to post my weekly eats next week.  Thanks, Jana
