WIAW: Meatless Monday

The turkey that’s literally chillin’ in our fridge has been my reminder that Thanksgiving is allllllmost here. Actually, I’ve been looking forward to going grocery shopping (one of my favorite things to do) for the past two weeks, and that’s just what I’ll be doing with my mom today! I have a nice long list since I’m in charge of making the starchy sides like cornbread, mashed potatoes, and stuffing. YUS.

Alright, I’m done talking about Thanksgiving…until tomorrow.

Looking back a couple of days, I participated in the first #Elf4Health challenge— Meatless Monday! Not eating meat is pretty easy for me since I love fish (which I don’t really consider meat meat), eggs, and beans. So Monday was a delicious day of eats, and what better way to recap my eats than with Jenn’s WIAW party?!




Toast with cherry butter toffee peanut butter, sunflower seed butter, and sliced bananas + glass o’ milk



The usual {recycled photo}



Smoked salmon, cream cheese, spinach sandwich + an un-pictured clementine



Kashi Berry Lemonade granola bar— it actually tastes like lemonade!


FROZEN GRAPES. After seeing a bunch of people try this, I had to. And it’s so worth it even in this frigid weather. Nature’s popsicle!


Greek yogurt and banana slices {recycled photo}



Avocado toast (on bread from The Kneaded Bread— SO good) + hard-boiled eggs + lots of green beans that ya can’t see here

For the record, the hard-boiled eggs are brown because my mom puts them in teriyaki sauce.



A spoonful o’ white chocolate coconut peanut butter. Yum.

Day 1 of #Elf4Health was a success! Speaking of which, I am loving exchanging emails with my buddy, Emily! It makes the challenge even more fun because you always have someone supporting you and talking about their own challenge experiences along the way. You can still join for round 2 of Elf4Health here! And you DO NOT have to be a blogger (friends from school/dance…?? :D)

That’s all for now, folks. Today is another half day of school and then it is turkey break! Happy Wednesday!

So tell me: Do you do Meatless Mondays? What are some of your favorite vegetarian proteins? Do you like grocery shopping?
