#WIAW Where's All The Veg?

Another Wednesday has rolled around in the blink of an eye and that means time for another What I Ate Wednesday.. But before we get in to the eats...
I have to give a little shout out to Jenn over at Peas & Crayons as she is celebrating her 200th WIAW today.  Her WIAW link up is one of my all time favs and I love checking it out each week, so congrats Jenn and a big thank you from me for hosting an awesome link party each week.
On to the food...
One of the things I love about doing WIAW is seeing what I've actually eaten in a day.  Todays eats are more or less veggie free (compared to what I think I should eat) which obviously wasn't a conscious choice but somehow it happened. 


Oh how I'm loving having my Blend Active out again for breakfasts! This mornings breakfast was a banana, frozen fruit salad mix (melon, grapes & orange), spinach and just water today as I'd ran out of almond milk.  I was a bit vary of adding the spinach but it was actually quite a tasty addition.



You can't see the teeny sweet potato underneath all those beans but I promise you it's there.  These beans aren't your standard baked beans from a tin - these are my special amped up healthy beans that you can find the recipe for here. I love these beans as they're so much tastier and nutritious than baked beans.  I honestly think that if you try these you'll always want to have some in your freezer ready to whip out for a quick and easy lunch.  The variety of beans can be varied and for this particular recipe I think I used kidney and cannellini.


Yeah, yeah I know - brown slop doesn't really photograph that well. But as long as it tasted good, right?  This was left over veg curry that I'd made at the weekend served with quinoa.  I used a madras paste and added coconut milk, onions, garlic, ginger, black eye beans, peppers, courgettes and sugar snaps, topped with coriander.
Now, I know that sounds like a lot of veg but I'd got my quantities all wrong and it was mostly black eye beans.
What do you think?  Is this days eats seriously lacking in veggies?


Thanks so much for taking the time to comment... I love hearing from you xoxo
