Plentiful Plants

Daily eats of a Torontonian student

Fantastic Fish August 1, 2009

I got up super late this morning, so breakfast/brunch was a green monster made of vanilla rice protein powder, banana and pak choi (asian green that looks and tastes like it’s trying to be baby dino kale to me, but the person at the CSA stand seemed pretty confident even though it was the only bunch there)

Later I took a little left over smoothie, and mixed in a couple tablespoons of chia seeds to make a rather fantastic pudding.

And a bit later I had a Starbucks Peach and Raspberry yogurt parfait.

For dinner I cooked up what is probably to best piece of fish I’ve ever cook. I had a wild tuna fillet from Whole Foods hiding out in the freezer for a while, so I took it out to defrost yesterday, and today I rubbed it with a mixture of curry powder, sucanat, and salt. Then I seared it in a hot pan with olive oil, just until the rub started to brown (less than a minute on each side). The result was fantastic! I loved the curry and sugar combo, and it went perfectly with a bed of spring mix tossed in orange juice concentrate, and carrot and peas.

Now I’m headed for the movies and I’m taking this Pistachio Larabar with me.
