Veggies at Every Meal

Dinner last night was quick and easy!

 

I worked both jobs yesterday, so I was out from 8am to 8pm! I came home from work and whipped up the first thing that came to mind.

I steamed broccoli, zucchini, and yellow squash in a bowl. I then topped it with half a cup of marinara sauce, and white beans. I added string cheese to the top and micro-waved it to melt it. YUM!

Quick and easy is where it’s at! I even made extra to take to lunch later in the week.

 

This morning I was planning on going to the gym, but decided I needed the extra sleep. I am working tons of hours this week and have a bike ride planned with Mark and Kelly this afternoon. There’s always tomorrow morning! 😉

 

I thoroughly enjoyed my extra hour of sleep…and not having to pack breakfast. Packing multiple meals can be quite annoying.

 

After seeing Caitlin add sweet potatoes to her breakfast, I knew I had to try it! I was intrigued with the concept.

I used her combo, but added honey instead of maple syrup because I didn’t have any.

This strange breakfast included:

  • 1/3 of a huge sweet potato, cold
  • pecans
  • 1/2 cup oatmeal
  • plain chobani
  • flax
  • honey

 

Who knew veggies went with oatmeal?

 

It tasted fine, but the texture was strange to me. I haven’t ever eaten uncooked oatmeal, so I think that’s what was throwing me off. By the end of the bowl, I felt like I was choking down the oatmeal. I ended up picking out most of the potato and pecans and left behind some oatmeal. Whoops!

 

I’m off to work! I have Part 2 of my whitewater recap set to publish this afternoon, so be sure to check back!

  1. Your dinner sounds delicious!
    Everyone has been eating raw oatmeal around the blog world but strange textures freak me out so I’m not so sure I could handle it..

  2. I LOVE oatmeal raw! It is best in a smoothie 🙂 By the end of the smoothie, it has absorbed some of the liquid and gets a little chewy. LOVE!

  3. I’m not sure how I feel about sweet potatoes at breakfast although I do love them every other meal of the day…

  4. Yeah, I think I would have the same problem eating uncooked oats. I don’t blame you for picking everything out 🙂

  5. I love uncooked oatmeal so maybe I will give a try to this breakfast! I like sweet potato and veggies for breakfast too!! on this not, wanted to say hello to everybody here, I’ve been following food blogs for almost 2 yeArs and yesterday created mine, and today I’ve published my first post! so hello blog friends! and to you Megan, I really love your karma and energy!!! 🙂

  6. String cheese on top is such a great idea! I will have to remember that when I want some mozarella cheese and don’t have anything but string cheese 🙂

  7. After I saw her use dry oats in yogurt I tried it as well! I actually LOVED it. But its best to let the yogurt and oats and all sit a while before eating. Let it sit 15min or so….softens a bit. Or if useing greek yogurt, add a splash of almond milk (milk of choice)…helps as well. 🙂 But perhaps not for everyone. 🙂 Love your blog, just started reading it.
