Per Jen’s request (at Peas and Crayons) I am actually participating in today’s WIAW by showing you my typical days worth of eats (I usually just post a recipe). I guess I assumed who would really care what I eat all day but since she mentioned it I thought I would give it a try. Let me know what ya think.
So breakfast is the same pretty much everyday: oatmeal with some high fiber cereal mixed in, agave nectar, nut butter, a banana and sprinkled with cinnamon.
For lunch I decided to try something new. I found these vegan faux-meats at the grocery store the other day. Gardein products are made with soy, wheat, grains and veggies. I was surprised with how good they were and how similar they were to the taste of meat.
I tried the beef tips first sauteed in veggie broth for about 5 minutes. I ate them on top of a mixture of brown rice, black beans and frozen veggies. The meal was ready in under 8 minutes and was surprisingly delicious!
For dinner I enjoyed an all green dinner – kale chips, cucumber salad, grilled asparagus and Szechuan green beans.
Sesame-miso cucumber salad (recipe found Alyssa at Fashion Fitness Foodie)
- 4 cups of thinly sliced seeded cucumber
- 2 teaspoons dark sesame oil
- 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper
- 1 tablespoon hot water
- 1 tablespoon agave nectar
- 1 tablespoon rice vinegar
- Optional: 1 1/2 sesame seeds, toasted and 2 tablespoons white miso (I didn’t have these ingredients so I omitted them but the salad still turned out fabulous!)
1. Combine ingredients (except cucumber) in a bowl, stirring with a wisk.
2. Seed cucumbers by cutting in half and taking a spoon to the middle and scooping out the seeds. Slice cucumbers and add to mixture. Toss to coat.
