Today I decided to pull myself out of my funk and get some stuff done. I dropped Kai off at school, came home and started off by cleaning the kitchen. Then I moved on to the rest of the house. Then I did the laundry. I even pre-planned dinner. :)
But, as you know, yesterday I was still in can't-catch-up mode and it showed....
Breakfast was a quickly thrown together bowl of yogurt + almond butter + carob powder with some chia & flax seeds stirred in and a drizzle of agave nectar for sweetness. It was my version of a peanut butter cup breakfast, lol!
Lunch was roasted chickpeas. I actually discovered that this was the first time I had used my oven since Easter morning. How did I find out this fun fact? Well, when I made the eggs for brunch I threw the dirty pans in the oven to clean later so they weren't cluttering up the sink & counter top. Then I forgot!! What a nice surprise! Do'h!!
But hey, this morning I got them nice and cleaned up!
To roast the chickpeas I just drizzled some drained and rinsed chickpeas with olive oil and a pinch of salt then put them in the oven at 450° for 20 minutes. When I took them out I added some malt vinegar and then snacked on them for the rest of the afternoon. There were also some baby carrots thrown in periodically. :)
Dinner was easy spaghetti. I cooked up the noodles, nuked some broccoli and then mixed the drained noodles, the hot broccoli and 1/2 a jar of Prego.
Then topped with nutritional yeast...
See, it's been lazy days!
But today things changed...
Breakfast was LOTS of pumpkin + yogurt + pumpkin seeds, raisins and agave nectar. YUM!!!
Lunch was an awesome salad! Massaged Kale, Strawberries, Avocado, Mushrooms and Hard Boiled Egg.
To massage the kale I de-stemmed and chopped the kale and drizzled some balsamic vinegarette, dijon mustard and maple syrup on top. Then I took off my rings and dug in, massaging the kale so that it became nice and tender. :)
For dessert we had watermelon! I've been wanting watermelon for a while so, since I decided that today I was empowered, Kai and I went to Meijer to buy one. It was $4 for a "Personal Seedless" but it's all I could find. Once we got home I cut it up and within 3 hours the entire watermelon was gone!!!
|Got a picture before it was ALL gone. :)|
Well it was a "Personal Sized" watermelon. :)
