Hope you’re day is going well. Mine started off pretty bad. However, I decided that I wasn’t going to cope with food. Instead, I powered through by making a to-do-list and got onto the things which I needed to get done.
I have been inspired by some Ancient Grains today.
Brekky was Amaranth w/ 1 egg, 1 egg white and 3/4 c. frozen veggies.
It was really good. Nice, filling and delicious.
What is Amaranth?
is actually a seed. Amaranth is a highly nutritious grain, and is unusual in that it offers a complete form of vegetable protein. It is also a great source of dietary fiber, calcium and minerals such as iron, magnesium, phosphorus, copper and manganese. A gluten free food especially useful for very active people, vegetarians, and pregnant and breastfeeding women. (source)
Asian Meets Mexican Salad
Pad Thai noodles w/ green beans, salsa and lettuce. It was tasty, but I needed protein.
Today Was CRAZY and Not.My.Day
I snacked on some almonds (1/3 c. throughout day). I then ran around all day long. Seriously today was just not my day. My scooter is having problem, I am currently uninsured cause I can’t get my credit card to work online and I stressing about money. The whole budgeting thing is good, but I makes me aware of my not-so-great-spending-habits.
Coffee Date Made It Better
I met up with Lisa who is an Irish Doctor. She’s great. We had a great conversation. She’s on a journey and it was nice to speak to someone who I just met about their life. Sometimes meeting strangers, makes it easier to open yourself up.
I had a short macchiato…basically a shot w/ a touch of steamed milk.
Quinoa and Tofu to the RESCUE
I tried to take out of Mama Peas book and make some Mexican Quinoa
- 1 c. quinoa
- 2 tsp vegan spread
- 1 carrot
- 1/4 zuch
- 1/3 onion
- 3 garlic cloves
- 1 can tomatoes
- 1 1/2 can of water
Then I decided to make Sweet and Sour Tofu
- 200 g. firm tofu
- 1 can of pineapple chunks w/ juice
- 1/4 onion
- 1 tsp. vegan spread
My dinner was great. I actually decided to eat outside, cause I needed to step away from sitting in front of a computer and eating all the time.
Red grapes and Pink Ladies (x3 today) and strawberries and cream tea.
- Men and Body Image–tomorrow and Friday!!!!
- Megan’s Marathon Recap..I teared up
- 250 more crunches (x2 I owe myself 500)
- Jo-Lynne for making my new header, twitter background, and signature. She’s a gem!
What is something that you’ve tried that you never thought you’d eat?
