What I Ate Wednesday ~ Eating the Rainbow

I do not like to diet.

As soon as I start using the word diet as part of my daily plan,
I send myself down the road to failure.

For me dieting does not work. Healthy, consistent habits do.

One of my goals each and every day is to eat a rainbow of fruits and veggies.
It's easy to do this time of year with all of the fresh stuff that's so readily available.

Here's a sneak peek of my recent rainbow of eats...


Slow Cooked Zucchini Bread Steel Cut Oats
(yes, my garden is still producing oodles of zucchini --- do you want some?!)

Egg, Veggie & Cheese Breakfast Wrap


I've been brown baggin' it lately.
Like I always say ~ Planning = Success

Garlicky Kale
Crockpot Applesauce
Whole Wheat Tortilla with Hummus

Veggie Wrap with Hummus


I haven't taken any recent pics of my snacks, but over the past couple of days,
I've been eating chopped veggies with tzaztiki or a chopped apple.

Lentil Veggie Mac & Cheese
Roasted Beets
(this pic does not do this meal justice - it was fabulous!)

I didn't eat all of this food on the same day (I swear!!!), but I wanted to show you that there are lots of delicious, healthy meal options that are packed full of nutrition.

My challenge to you this week is to make sure there is a rainbow on your plate at each and every meal this week. You'll feel great and your belly with thank you!

Thank you as always to Miss Jenn for encouraging us all to make and keep good habits as we enter into Fall. Make sure you take a few minutes to check out her site to get lots of healthy meal ideas!

I'm tellin' you --- eating healthy is EASY!!

What is your favourite veggie-packed meal?

Have a wonderful day,



  1. My favorite veggie-packed meal is a salad probably. Today I had one with lettuce, cucumber slices, pear slices and protein!

    1. I love adding chopped fruit to my salads - add a little goat cheese to that and pure heaven :)

  2. Your dinner looks and sounds delicious! I love anything with broccoli & Brussels sprouts!

    1. I love brussel sprouts too - especially when they're roasted. We have some in the garden that will be ready within the next few weeks - can't wait!!
