I unintentionally ate backwards today. Dinner for breakfast was a La Tortilla Factory Multigrain wrap filled with spinach, red peppers, cucumber, and the leftover Lemony Hummus Style Blended Quinoa. The wrap was a bit over stuffed, which lead to messy eating, but it was da-lish.
For lunch I had a huge bowl of roasted goodies. Cauliflower, celeriac, pepper squash, and brussel sprout were all tossed in olive oil, salt and pepper, and cisped up in the oven, and I ate the last of the pork tenderloin along with a drizzle of ketchup.
Then I showed some restraint and only blended two things this afternoon, one of which I didn’t even eat, it’ll show up in lunches this week. The consumed vita-mix treat was a green monster, almost the same as yesterday’s because it was so good, just spinach and a russet apple.
And later I just had to dig into this bag that I found in Chinatown this morning. I bought the mushroom and pumpkin chips, but there were also green bean, apple, and I think pineapple (I might be making that one up)? The mushroom ones, are really good. The flavour is nice and mild shitake, not super overpowering like I was afraid of, and they aren’t greasy at all, just perfectly crunchy.
And to end the day’s eats, all I wanted was oatmeal. And it has been a while, so I went with it. Besides, it’s not like I haven’t eaten enough veggies yet today or anything. Into the pot went steel cut oats, a banana, raisins, vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves. Look at how dark the oats are, I like my bowl heavily spiced. Then I topped everything off with more raisins, and Kashi GoLean Crunch. It really hit the spot. This was actually the first time I’ve made steel cut oats in a pot, and I liked that they were a lot chewier than my slowcooked version.
And now for Sunday night CTV time, and new Desperate Houswives, finally!
