Tonight is going to have to be a quick post because I’ve spent way too much of my time watching The Biggest Loser and grading projects for my sophomores, and I’ve got to head to bed!
I started my day off with overnight oats, primarily because we are out of soy milk, so I couldn’t make my usual green monster. Last night I mixed up 1/3 cup oats, 1/3 cup soy yogurt, 1/3 cup water, a heaping spoonful of canned pumpkin and cinnamon. I set it in the fridge overnight, and then this morning hubby added in sliced almonds and some blueberries. Yummo! I always love having overnight oats! I usually really enjoy them cold, straight out of the fridge, but it was so cold outside this morning that I decided to heat them up. They kept me warm all the way to work!!
*good oats…bad, bad pic
Dinner tonight was our usual Tuesday night enchiladas, aka “our addiction.” We LOVE this meal. Jon and I honestly just cannot get enough of Mexican food, so obvs. we have to healthify it. I like our version just as good or better as the restaurant version we used to get so often. I feel a heck of a lot better after eating this one though!
* this pic is so bad I almost didn’t post it. Don’t judge the ‘lada because of the sad iPhone pic.
1 Stacy’s whole wheat tortilla (more on these later)
2 slices of portabello mushroom
diced green chilis
nutritional yeast (protein)
green enchilada sauce
Wrap it all up and pop it in the over for about 10 minutes, and you’ve got yourself a gooey, smokin’ hot enchilada. Add a big scoop of homemade, healthy guac and a small side of refrien beans – perfection. If you love Mexican food, you would love this meal, promise.
Question for tonight: do you have levels of healthiness when you think about the food you eat?
Let me explain. Even though all the food I eat is clean, I still put it in levels in my mind for some reason. For instance, sauteed veggies over spaghetti squash would be about a 10 on the scale of healthiness, whereas my vegan enchilada meal is about a 5 or 6. In reality, neither meal is “not clean” or unhealthy in any way, but I still put these “labels” on my food sometimes. Does anybody else do this? I don’t necessarily think it’s a bad thing, but it’s kind of curious. Just wondered if I’m the only crazy person food labeler out there.
That’s it for now, friends. I’ve got to get to bed – I’ve got a busy day ahead involving a english department meeting over lunch, meeting with my principal during my planning period and a workout + hair appointment after school. Gotta decide whether to grow it out or keep it short. Ahh, decisions decisions!!
