So… do you want the good news or the bad news first? The good news? Well, the good news is that it’s What I Ate Wednesday and it’s still February so we are celebrating our infinite love for veggies. The bad news? This WIAW post is going to be lacking in food photos. You see, a funny thing happened today (Tuesday). I forgot to photograph just about every meal. I blame it on this winter storm Rocky we have rolling through these parts…
However, I am hoping to make all of this up to you by offering up some veggie love straight from my favorite FLOTUS, Mrs. Obama.
I started reading this book at the beginning of the week and am already about half way through it. If you are looking for useful information on how to start a garden, the story of the White House garden or how gardens impact our communities and our health, look no further than American Grown. You might even be inspired to try a new veggie or two. Plus, it’s the perfect time to learn about what to plant in your own garden with spring quickly approaching.
This week’s (somewhat) nonexistant eats:
Okay – so here are the two things I managed to actually take pictures of on Tuesday.
Breakfast – Oats (of course)
Lunch – Mixed greens salad with avocado, pomegranate seeds & blue cheese, sweet potato fries, clementine
Dinner – Potato soup and a glass of red wine
What were your eats for this week? Do you grow your own vegetables? Are you good at remembering to take pictures?
