WIAW: Salads & Snackage

Howdy and welcome to yet another What I Ate Wednesday post!
As you can see from my title, this isn't going to be an ordinary WIAW post. This month my focus is on eating at least one salad per day and the lovely Miss Jenn, host with the most of this weekly party, has challenged us to also focus on sensible snacking. Well I'm definitely an expert when it comes to snackage, so I'm thinking this month's eats are going to be super wickedly delish!

Instead of seeing 'a day in the life' of my eats, I've decided to flip back into my Instagram and Twitter pics and show you some of my most awesome salads and snacks of late. Hopefully I'll motivate you to get all crazy and *gasp* jump on the healthy train with me.

Are ya game?!

Here goes nothin'....


First off, check out some of my most excellent snacks...

LUNA Bars rock my world!

Chopped apple with natural peanut butter gives a boost of energy to get through the workday.

SMOOTHIES!!! Love, love, love anytime of day!
My usual mix includes vanilla protein powder, vanilla almond milk, 1 frozen banana and some other frozen fruit. Sometimes I add spinach too!

....and my most excellent salads....

Grilled Veggie Salad with Black Beans & Quinoa on a bed of mixed greens - super filling!
I love this type of salad when I need something to keep me fueled for an after work sweat session.

Asian Crunch Salad
(mixed greens, peppers, slivered almonds, crunchy sticks, shredded cabbage and a sesame dressing)

Mixed Greens with goat cheese, chickpeas & sundried tomatoes...and dijon of course!
Add a slice of pizza and you pretty much have perfection :-D

Broccoli & Chickpea Salad with a veggie quesadilla --- yummers!

Like whatcha see? Follow me on Twitter (@Vegvacious) if you want to see my eats on a daily basis - I try to take pics of at least one or 2 meals each day....for more foodie inspiration, head on over to visit Peas & Crayons to see what other bloggers have been noshing on this week.
