Anyhow, breakfast was a slice of yesterday's banana bread, which is good cold also. Also an apple, yogurt and pumpkin choco chip oats! I put a handful of chips in before I poured my oatmeal in so every so often I got a big spoon of chocolate.
I made my lunch after Obama's speech. I really wanted something patriotic but I didn't have any red, white or blue food :[ So I settled for a hummus and pesto "pizza", since I really like that combo. I spread a couple tbs of each on a sandwich thin and topped it with black olives and spinach.
I had it with a Trek Mix bar, carrots (I would've had an apple but we only had green ones) and a Nature's Promise yogurt. I actually changed my mind and had strawberry, because it's red!
I had to eat dinner on the way to therapy, from my cello lesson. I was kind of just throwing stuff together in the skillet and I created chickpea, spinach, and feta couscous! My food has had a Meditterenean swing to it today. Anyhow, I combined these ingredients in the skillet with 1 tbs of EVOO:
- 3 tbs-ish cous cous
- 1/2 c chickpeas
- 1/2 plum tomato, chopped
- 3 black olives
- 1 1/2 c spinach
For my night time snack, I tried to make Amazing Basic Pudding from CCV. It didn't work. I brought the agar, milk, and salt to a boil, then turned it down and let it simmer. I ended up letting it simmer for about 10 minutes because those pesky agar flakes wouldn't dissolve! I gave up and poured it into a tupperware container, then stuck it in the fridge for an hour or so. When I looked at it again, it was the consistancy of tofu, or maybe jello? Is it supposed to look like this and this stage? I put it in a bowl with a couple tbs of soymilk, 2/3 c pumpkin, brown sugar and spices. I didn't want to get out my blender so I just used an electric mixer to mix everything together.
It tastes great, don't get me wrong. But it's chunky, and there's no way I can convince myself that I'm eating pudding! Is the problem just that I didn't use a blender? Help me!
Back to school tomorrow. Boooo. I only have one exam, Spanish, so I get to come in two hours later than usual. Hope you all had wonderful Tuesdays!
