This post is going to be short and sweet. My students turned in their research papers today (blah), so I’ve got a pile of grading a mile high that I’ve been attempting to sort through. Plus, tonight has just gone by really fast, and this girl has got to hit the sack!
If there is one thing besides clean eating and exercise that I find imperative it’s sleep. Getting up at 5am every morning, it’s nearly impossible to get 8 hours, which would be my dream (no pun intended:). I do strive to get at least 7, though, and it’s going to be pushing it at this point.
I made a fun little run to the health food store after work today. Most people would think I am crazy considering how excited I get at the health food store, but I just love browsing and seeing all the different foods, and of course picking up a couple of special treats while I’m at it. And of course you of all people probably can identify. Here is a picture of my loot.
I’m not going to go into detail about it all tonight, but definitely expect some reviews coming soon because several of these items are new to my repetoire, and so far they have totally blown me away. And with that I present to you dinner:
a little less than an ounce of soba noodles
First, I sauteed the onions and garlic in a little bit of evoo for a few minutes. Then I tossed in all the other vegetables besides the mushrooms and turnip greens. As I sauteed them, I sprayed Braggs on intermittently. As soon as those veggies were done, I added the mushrooms and turnip greens just for about a minute. Once they were done I mixed them in a bowl with the cooked soba noodles, and then sprinkled nutritional yeast all over it (my favorite part!).
Wow. That’s all I have to say. The veggies played the starring role in this meal, and the nutritional yeast was like the icing on the cake. The soba noodles have probably become my favorite noodle (haha), but I like to say I had some soba noodles on my vegetables rather than the other way around. This was just such a great combo that I could probably have every night. I promise I won’t bore you, though. Definitely expect the nutritional yeast to make a second appearance tomorrow, though!
Okay, that’s all for tonight. I hope everyone had a great day…and here’s to a great Thursday as well:)
