Eek! I can’t believe I’m just now getting around to posting.
I have been pulling some seriously late nights this past week, and it needs to stop! It’s causing me to be so exhausted during the day. I just love staying up late, though!
Lunch today was simple.
Two slices of Ezekiel bread, Morningstar black bean burger, hummus, a healthy dose of sunflower sprouts, and rotel tomatoes. Yum!
And the biggest watermelon spread ever! I promise I didn’t eat all that…at least not for lunch;)
I’m pretty sure I’m going to morph into a watermelon before it’s all said and done. That or a sunflower sprout:)
I had totally forgotten that yoga was tonight until I started craving it this afternoon. Then it hit me! So, after tutoring I went straight to class, and did some lovely sun salutations, half series and child’s poses. love. love. love.
Since I knew I’d be getting home sort of late from yoga, I spent some time this afternoon chopping up veggies and making a stir-fry sauce. So, when I got home all I had to do was dump it all in the wok and cook some bulgur!
I included cabbage, bell pepper, pattypan squash, carrots, onions, zucchini and sunflower sprouts. Obviously I added a sprinkle of chia seeds to top it all off!
The most important thing about stir-frying veggies is timing. I always put my carrots in and let them cook for a bit first (same story with broccoli if you’re using it); then I add bell peppers. Soon after the peppers I add in everything else except for the sunflower sprouts, which I toss in at the very end.
I would give you the recipe for the sauce I made, but it needs some revamping. It involved low sodium tamari sauce, garlic, olive oil, maple syrup, seasoned rice vinegar and ground red pepper; it was a bit bland unfortunately, so I’ll spare you the details. The incredible veggies were the star of this show!
Dessert was a brown rice cake with a thin layer of Maranatha Chocolate Almond Butter spread. This stuff is just like eating icing. It is so good!
With a cup of decaf iced coffee on the side.
Well, I hate to cut this short, but I gots to gets to bed!
Tomorrow is a special day here, but I’m going to wait ’till tomorrow to tell you why! Any guesses?!
