WIAW #39 – A SOUPer potluck

If you read my last week’s post, you saw that I wasn’t having veggies. A shocker for me – I eat veggies at least three meals a day typically (plus snacks), but last week, they just didn’t appeal to me. Good news – I’m back on the veggie bandwagon! I still haven’t been feeling them in the morning and haven’t been doing eggs, but on this day (Tuesday), I had them twice in one day. Woohoo! I’m almost back!

Here are Tuesday’s meals. It includes some veggies AND a work potluck where we all brought in soup to share!

For breakfast, I started the day with some yogurt and fruit. I mixed plain Greek nonfat yogurt with some canned pumpkin, cinnamon and Hemp Hearts and it was delicious! Does pumpkin count as eating veggies for breakfast?


Lunch was our potluck! I had brought in a chicken gnocchi soup, but also tried some beef stew, veggie chili and gluten-free matzo ball soup. Plus some homemade fudge for dessert. And a side of raw veggies. And bread. Yup, that was a delicious lunch and I ended up in a food coma.

For a snack, I had an apple. I forgot to take a picture, so here’s my mostly eaten apple from Monday. I also had some tea.



B made me dinner! And here are some more veggies. He made salmon and broccoli and shallots and asparagus. It was so good! I’m so glad to be eating more veggies again.


I also had another small bite of fudge. SO. GOOD.


And that was about it! A day with some more veggies, thank goodness. Back on the vegetable bandwagon!

  • Have you ever made fudge? What’s a good recipe?
  • What’s another creative potluck my office should do? We do themes…we’ve done crockpot, salad, and soup!

  1. Peanut butter fudge has to be one of the most addicting sweets out there. I can almost guarantee you a pan wouldn’t last even a week in our home. Haha!

  2. Such a great idea for a potluck! Soup in the winter = purrrre comfort. I do the same thing with my yogurt.. and I say adding in pumpkin DEFINITELY counts as having vegetables. When we let ourselves lessen our veggie intake when we aren’t wanting them, it always just makes their return that much more delicious!

  3. Potlucks always look so amazing yet they’re not a thing over here. Occasionally, you’ll bring a dish to a BBQ or something but I don’t think it’s the same.
    Your breakfast looks delicious and pumpkin totally counts as a vegetable. I guess we all go through phases were we crave more or less of something and if vegetables for breakfast don’t sound very appealing to you right now that’s perfectly normal. I often eat savoury oatmeal and pack in the vegetables – even Brussels sprouts :).

  4. That pumpkin bowl looks divine! I wish that I could eat diary so I could try it. I actually don’t like fudge.. I KNOW RIGHT… I just find it so rich.
    I love pot lucks but I find that I always overeat.. especially at the dessert table!
