all in a day's eats

14 Jul

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?!

    Can I just say I love that red and white plate??!! I think I have become obsessed with dishes since I started blogging. I am still not sure about the special announcement. You did say someone was coming for the weekend right?
