Veggies Schmeggies

Veggies. We have a love/hate relationship. I love them, but they’re not so filling. Therefore, I bring you a veggieful yet hangry WIAW, thanks to the Veggie Queen herself.

    I am the same. I love veggies, but always need something to go with them.

    I love how you said you would have the froyo as you were still hungry. With the amount of running I do, I eat about double your day, and I am STILL always hungry! In some ways it is good, but in others it is annoying that I am like a child who constantly needs to eat haha!

  3. I love those think thin bars….and olive tapenade? um. Yum?

    Those damn hungry days. Worst when your in an office setting and everyone stares…

  4. It’s so true about veggies. Even though I really like them they can never ever go with a carb/ grain-y side. Or followed by a snack. Like today’s office lunch of vegetable stew was nice but needed to be completemented with some homemade granola. Work days can be really long…

  5. Me and veggies are currently seeing other people. They’re great and I love them, but the idea of “too much of a good thing” is very real and I’d rather not torture my finicky stomach. So I eat chocolate instead… which is technically a vegetable ;)

  6. I had baked ziti at a banquet last night, and it was so good and so cheesy :)

  7. What?! I eat veggies because I can eat in VOLUME :) very filling

  8. True about veggies! I love them, but I’ve got to have some protein and/or fat with them to make me feel full. Hope you are having a great week!

  9. I love veggies, but if I eat too many, my stomach is not a happy camper, so I have to just eat a few at a time as a side dish with some meat or pasta.

  10. I had one of those hungry days yesterday. I think I didn’t eat enough for breakfast or lunch cause I could not stop last night! Had a big ole smoothie for breakfast today so hoping that will help :)

  11. This reminds me that I need to eat more olive tapenade! hehe.

    The best thing today was the Chicken Pita I WAS eating, before Wyatt freaked out and I had to haul butt out of the restaurant. wahhhh!

  12. Hungry days are my life lol. I’ve mixed PB in my chocolate frozen yogurt…never strawberry…and now I’m kicking myself because that’s brilliant!

    I’ve been rungry since my track workout yesterday. I am trying to fill up with protein – yogurt, eggs, etc.,

    Earth Fare had a lobster/filet combo on sale this weekend. With a spinach, strawberry, and bleu cheese salad, it was lovely!
