Yes! It’s another #WIAW, but the sad news is…is that it is the last Love Your Veggies #WIAW 😦 . I suppose all good things must come to an end, however I will still keep those veggies in alive and well in my diet! As always, a big thanks goes out to Jenn at Peas & Crayons for hosting and I’m looking forward to what March’s theme will be!
For the past few days, I have had a mad craving for a banana smoothie. I’ve contemplated running to Biggby to satisfy it, however, I KNEW I could make it and I just needed to stop being lazy. So, that is exactly what I did this morning and boy, did it Hit. The. Spot.
Creamy Banana Smoothie
- 1 frozen banana
- 1 scoop of vanilla protein powder
- 1 cup of almond milk
- 1/2-1 cup frozen pineapple
- 1 serving Yoplait greek coconut yogurt
- Combine all ingredients into a blender and blend!
In honor of this last What I Ate Wednesday-Veggie Edition, I wanted to share a new-to-me recipe idea I randomly thought of the other night while eating fajitas. It will probably sound like the silliest thing to all of you. But, since I am still easing into this kitchen/cooking thing along with learning to be more adventurous in the kitchen and still not quite sure HOW to do that, I was impressed with myself. Baby steps, right? Anyway, as I was eating the fajitas I realized I wasn’t enjoying the tortillas, so I figured I would just go ahead and mix the rest of the ingredients together and out came my delicious Fajita Bowl!! I simply mixed Santa Fe rice with the fajita chicken and veggie mix and topped with some sour cream. I didn’t have any shredded cheese, but this would be an amazing addition! Like I said, so simple that probably many of you have already done this, but for some reason this new little mix up really did it for me and I am now hooked! I’m already excited to make it again!
Question of the Day:
Have you ever randomly stumbled across a new way to make, eat, or combine your usual recipes and it turns into your new mind-blown favorite?
