- 1/2 c oats
- 1 c water
- banana [1/2 cooked in, 1/2 on top]
- brown sugar
- almond butter
Close up of the melty almond butter goodness:
I missed my almond butter while I was gone! What kind of nut butter do you dig? Almond? Peanut? Sunflower?
I started to get hungry at work for a snack. Tuesday was a weird day for me in that I didnt have a single snack. Generally Im a breakfast-snack-lunch-snack-dinner-dessert kind of girl. I broke into a juicy red anjou pear:
After it took me about 30 minutes to free my car from 1/4-1/2 a quarter of ice I made it home for lunch. Seriously, this is what I was dealing with:
By the time I made it home I was seriously hungry. So I threw together some His and Her’s salads consisting of:
- Salad mix
- Red onion
- Turkey Pepperoni
With a splash of my favorite dressing:
I know a lot people favor Annie’s but I havent actually found an Annie’s Dressing that I am head over heels with. I am, however, a huge fan of Ken’s & Paul Newman’s. Annie’s lovers: What kind should I get out and try? I want to be a believer!
As a little end of meal treat I sampled some of the Belgian chocolates I got in Brussels:
Speculoos is a “spiced milk chocolate with crumbs of cinnamon cookie, a delicious Belgian specialty.” The Bresilienne which may be my favorite is “a crunchy snack with caramelised pieces of hazelnut.”
For snack I munched on an orange & a Berry La Croix.
After reading Kristin’s blog the other night, I new I need to add Panchero’s Bowls to our meal list. We got to work in the kitchen preparing cilantro-lime rice, corn salsa and grilled chicken for our salad beasts.
For the rice, I precooked some brown rice on Tuesday night so I added the rice in with some minced garlic, some lime juice, and a few handfuls of chopped cilantro and presto:
For the corn salsa I pulled up a random recipe to use as my guide.
- 1 can corn [rinsed, drained]
- 1 jalapeno [diced, deseeded]
- 1/3 c red onion [diced]
- 1/3 c cilantro [chopped]
- lime juice to taste
I didnt meaure precisely the onion or cilantro, but these are the estimates. I dont think it needed salt, and Ive never had corn salsa with red pepper in it so I skipped it. Matt said it was man approved!
Note: Next time Ill definitely use fresh corn. I did think rinsing the corn helped, but it still had that canned taste.
End result: Some seriously juicy chicken.
All we had to do was assemble our Salad Bowls.
- Bed of Romaine
- Cilantro-lime rice
- Corn salsa
- Black beans
- Hot sauce
I did forget to make guac, but honestly my taste buds werent missing it! 2 salads out of 3 meals aint bad! I didnt have a 7:30 yoga class planned, but it was cancelled due to the ice storm. Instead of popping in a work out dvd we cozied up and watched District 9. Thoughts on D9? I had heard it was the best movie of the year, and although I can agree on that it was still a pretty good movie.
Tomorrows a packed day:
- Hot Yoga
- Another yummy dinner
