Hm, so I read over my post from yesterday and it doesn't make much sense to me now. I was sleep deprived, so I hope I didn't confuse anyone! The point was that after seeing the devastating effects of ED in one of my friends, I decided not to let ED bully me around anymore. This is my life, not ED's, and if I want to eat cookies without guilt, I should be able to!
Breakfast this morning was a grilled cheese sammich, apple, plain yogurt, and this bowl of Blueberry-Gingerbread Oats!
I found gingerbread tea at the supermarket the other day, I was ecstatic! So this morning I brought a cup of water to a boil and added the teabag. I let it steep until it was pretty strong, then I added my dry oats and cooked them as usual.
Then I added in dashes of cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger and cloves; 1/2 tbs molasses (love!) and a handful of frozen blueberries. Perfect.
For dinner tonight, meat-eaters were eating beef tacos. I have a block of tofu in the fridge that's going bad, so I mashed together a couple tofu taco recipes to create Tofacos! For the taco filling, I used:
1/4 block (3.5 oz) extra firm tofu
1/2 cup cabbage, shredded
Splash red vinegar (blanking on the name of it..)
1 tsp lime juice
1/4 tsp each of cumin and garlic powder
1 tsp chili powder
1 tbs tomato sauce
1 tbs diced green chilies
1/4 of a red bell pepper
First I let the cabbage soak in the vinegar for about 5 minutes. Then I added everything to a pan and cooked over medium-high for five minutes. And voila!
I put them in two corn taco shells and they were so delish, if I do say so myself! Pretty spicy. I used to eat pseudo-meat a lot, but I've stopped eating it over the past couple of months for recipes like this! I don't want my food to imitate meat, I want it to be real and made in my own kitchen! I also had a big bowl o' black beans. I had a microwaving mishap, which is why it's so dirty like that. Whoops.
Good night, sleep tight, don't let the bedbugs bite!
