WIAW #42 – Veggie Love

Welcome to another WIAWTuesday! Thanks to Jenn from Peas & Crayons for hosting the link party.

My Tuesday started off with a 45 minute run and a shower. After feeding the cats, I made breakfast. Of course I wanted yogurt with papaya, but running + dairy do not mix for me. I am only sensitive to dairy after I run. Instead, I opted for some eggs with spinach, and black beans topped with salsa, and a bowl of raspberries.

However, Alicia and I had an appointment with the florist for the wedding, so I had to eat something. My plan was to have yogurt and when I got hungry a couple of hours later, I could have last night’s leftovers.

Four p.m. came around and I was just a little hungry, so I had a snack instead of a full-sized lunch. My fiancé and I went grocery shopping yesterday, and I got some new hummus that I wanted to try out. It was a little spicy but good :)

My fiancé said he would just make himself some ham and cheese sandwiches, and I said I would have Monday night’s tilapia that was left over. Plain tilapia didn’t appeal to me yesterday, so I opted for simple fish tacos instead.

tilapia tacos and green beansI cut up the tilapia, put it in a bowl with some avocado and lime juice and mixed them all together. I split the mixture into two tortillas and topped it with salsa. Steamed green beans with lime juice butter rounded out my dinner. It was delicious and super quick to make.

I hope you enjoyed my eats!

Do you have any food intolerances that only affect you at certain times?

As I mentioned, my body can’t handle dairy after a run.




  1. I love eggs with spinach in the mornings! Fish tacos sound lovely, too!

  2. First time commenting here and your pictures are beautiful. Swap the scrambled eggs for tofu scramble and your breakfast would be a favourite of mine, too :).
    Actually, I’m with you on the at-times-only dairy ‘intolerance’. For me, however, it’s before a run. Every time I had some Greek yogurt before a run I’d get stomach aches. Lesson learned and dairy has found its place in post-run meals only on days that I have some of it.
