Veggies and more veggies

It’s been a good week for veggie eating.

Monday I had a dentist appointment and my face was numb for half the day.  Jamba Juice to the rescue!  I had a Greens with added ginger smoothie.  When my face woke up I had a veggie dog… plain.  Dinner was a cabbage from the garden with veggie sausage.  You can see the recipe here.  I love this dish!  It’s even a family favorite.

Tuesday I had a fruit smoothie with a couple of added herbs.  I also made zucchini sticks  and sweet potato tots to accompany a large salad.

Wednesday was a green smoothie with added herbs and Brussels sprouts and zucchini hash.  You can get the recipe here.  I splurged and had toast with a little fresh triple berry jam.

Thursday I decided to see how my tummy did with a little cottage cheese and cantaloupe.  It was okay.  However, I didn’t want to push my luck and made veggie mac and cheese for lunch.  you can get that recipe here.  I had a little homemade green salsa with a few chips and a few veggie tots too.   dinner was super yummy.  I made Greens with Halloumi.  You can get the recipe here.

Friday was a busy day.  I tried a second day with cottage cheese and cantaloupe.  I was sorry later.  I had a little more green salsa with a couple chips.  I made a yummy broccoli, asparagus, mushroom and tofu stir fry.  No recipe, just and dump and hope for the best.  Too bad I didn’t write it down.  It was one of the best flavors I have ever made!

Saturday was a LONG day.  I picked all the ripe tomatoes in my garden and canned roasted tomato soup.  I also made Ratatouille.  so good!  You can get the recipe here.   I didn’t make it all pretty like usual.  I just chopped it and threw it in.  Had a few berries and some garlic bread to go along with it too.  Other than berries, fall foods are my favorite fresh foods.

Sunday was a good relaxing day.  I had an Asian salad, the leftover broccoli tofu stuff, vegetarian baked beans, watermelon and a veggie burger.

So… that was my week.  Seriously, I don’t get my body sometimes.  I am still getting cramps that feel like my muscles are being ripped off my legs.  I am still holding steady at the same weight now for the past 8 months.  Dude!  I take a picture of everything I eat.  I am not eating bad.  I am not eating tons… well around 2 pounds of veggies a day, but that is not many calories.  Sorry to vent.  I am not giving this up.  I just wanted to vent because after the cramps I had last night I am tired and I just don’t get it.  Okay.  That’s over.  Time to go out and have another great veggie day.
