My food today has been a whole mish mash of culture today! For breakfast, I started out with a Mediterranean tofu scramble!
I used 1/4 block extra firm tofu, 1 cup of spinach, 1/3 cup sundried tomato (yay!), 1 clove garlic, 1 tbs nooch and 4 slices black olives. Plus an apple
And Coconut Blueberry Chai Oats!
I looked my oats this morning in a bag of chai tea, which gave it a really lovely color! Then I added 1/2 blueberries, 1 tbs shredded coconut and a handful of chopped almonds. Super delish!
The Italian part of the title came into play at lunch. I was craving a sammich, so I made one. I used 1.5 oz of mozarella, handful of spinach, and a tbs. of pesto my dad made. I love his homemade pesto, it way beats the jarred stuff. Along with it, I had a TLC bar, Rachel's yogurt, and carrots.
Then I went to Target. It's like my home away from home, I love it so much! There were some adorable plates that I'll be buying at my next trip there. This time, I went a bit bar wild. I found the new Kashi bars I found the new Kashi bars I found the new Kashi bars! I am so happy!
There were also lots of discount Larabars. Some were only $0.54, can you believe it? I snatched up three. I'll be disappointed if Target stops selling Laras though, because then I'll have to go all the way to Whole Foods to get them. Boo.
For dinner, I made this recipe for Kugel, which is Jewish. So that's the "wish" part of the title. My mom used to make Kugel a lot, even though we aren't Jewish, for some reason. I stopped requesting it when my ED started (hello. White pasta+butter+sugar?), but I decided to challenge myself tonight. I'm so glad I did, it was so amazingly tasty! It tasted like apple pie.. but with pasta instead of crust. It sounds bizarre, but trust me, it's amazing.
Along with it, I had a Quorn chicken cutlet brushed with OO and seasoned with cumin, oregano and garlic powder. My mom's boss is paying for fruit of the month in her office, but hardly anyone in her office is eating the fruit. She said that they all say they want cheesecake again, like last year haha. So January is pear month, and my mommy brought me a huge pear! I split it with her and my dad with dinner.
It was so perfect! I really don't know how else to describe it. It's Harry and David, come on!
Hope you all had lovely, ED-free days.
