wiaw – a lot of green stuff

Hey.  Hi.  Hey-o!

I don’t have a whole bunch of time (about to head downstairs and train my MoveMore groups) but I wanted to sit down for a second and document some of the FOOD that we’ve been consuming around here lately.  Yesterday marked the end of a little mini-challenge that I had with myself (the 10-day Advocare Challenge for Nursing Moms if you’re interested) so we’ve been eating A LOT of green things.  Since our food color for the month of December was mostly brown…chocolate brown…a little green in the month of January was more than needed.  Lots of salads, eggs, crockpot chicken and green smoothies were consumed.  Travis and I both feel WAY better and plan to continue this green streak for a little while longer (aka I won’t be making brownies today…maybe this weekend Winking smile ).

A little look at what’s been going down:

012

The biggest container of spring mix I’ve ever seen.

001

Justin’s Vanilla Almond Butter on a sweet potato…try it!

002

009

Crockpot Chicken (I need to share this recipe ASAP – we eat it at least once a week) and BBQ-flavored Good Beans

008

I can’t get enough of this Nikki’s Coconut Butter.  It’s good on everything but best on warm/hot items as the oil tends to solidify when cold.  Just a heads up for when you buy it because you should!

019

003

I love shrimp!  I cooked these in a little Kerrygold butter and Trader Joe’s 21 Seasoning Salute.

004

002

Told ya.  Love it!

QUESTION:  What’s your favorite VEGETABLE??  <-I like spinach only because it’s so versatile.  But a roasted brussel sprout wins my heart.

splendid…lindsay
