Hello!..I hope everyone is doing well and had a great holiday weekend. I was pretty bad as far as eating over the holiday weekend. I did a lot of eating out and ate a lot of processed foods. By the time Monday afternoon rolled around, I was feeling a little bluh. We did grill Monday night though. Have you ever grilled Boca Chik'n patties? I decided to give it a try Monday night, the outcome was great. I had a grilled Boca Chik'n Pattie, fried okra (the only way I eat okra), a baked potato with some nutritional yeast on top, a couple of jalapeno poppers, and a roasted yummy bell pepper.
Tuesday Morning I had a smoothie made out of soy milk, a frozen banana, frozen strawberries, and scoop of chocolate amazing grass. I was running short on time, so my smoothie had to be a quick fix.
For my mid morning snack on Tuesday I had a whole wheat English muffin with "bacon" and a much needed cup of coffee. Seeing everyone else blog about their English muffins made me want one. :o)
Yesterday for lunch I had a salad with a left over grilled Boca Chick'n Pattie. I didn't have time to whip up dressing for my salad, so I thought that I would just get some at work. I totally forgot about the cafeteria being closed yesterday. I happen to remember that I brought an orange, so I sliced it open and squeezed the juice over my salad. To my amazement it was delicious! Shen, I think you asked me if our cafeteria had a salad bar, and I don't remember if I answered you or not....sorry! They don't have a salad bar, but they make salads every day and put them into plastic containers. All of their salads have meat and cheese on them though. There's a very sweet lady that works in the cafeteria that will make a salad just for me when I want one. I just tell her in advance in the morning time that I would like a salad, which I think is super sweet!
Last night for supper I had made some succotash (my own way) I actually had a can of succotash, so I dumped the contents into a colander and rinsed it (yes, rinsed all the spices right off). It was mostly tomatoes with a very few butter beans and corn, so I added some frozen corn, edamame, and some cabbage to it. I added some spices such as salt, pepper, cumin, and graram marsala...mmmm. I put the succotash over some brown rice and topped that with nutritional yeast. This was another successful and quick dinner. :o) Leftovers are for lunch today!
For breakfast this morning I had oatmeal made with steel cut oats. I added a little molasses, goji berries (much better used in oatmeal than eaten dry), sliced almonds, and a dash of cinnamon. I then poured a little almond milk over it. It was too cold (55 degrees) this morning for a smoothie....brrrrrr I'm not complaining though. I had much rather have this cooler weather than the 95 plus temps.
Now that I'm all caught up on my foods from the last couple of days, I should be back to my normal blogging tomorrow with not as many processed foods....hopefully.
