I got new boots-
They suck-They are the short ones-I like the taller ones...not sure why I got these!
I have some food pics too from this week!
Last weekend I made salsa and cauliflower soup-It was great I mason jared them and they were good all week....Just have a little salsa left-So it was worth the time
Oh and I made chick pea burgers and froze them-They are great to have on hand......
I had a small piece, just to try it but I stayed away.
Ray also wanted Empanadas-I only indulged in 1 as they are made with shortening. Had to try one though-They are one of my favorite things-Especially with a side of fresh lemon juice, garlic (minced) green onion and cilantro-Very refreshing. These are traditional Chilean Empanadas....so good (some people fry them but we baked them).
hmmm- I also made a couple different marinated tofu dishes
Yesterday I made pumpkin coconut curry-with some tofu. This was a success
|onions, garlic ginger and spices|
|add some preen and red peppers-and sweet potato|
|add some pure pumpkin|
|a little coconut milk|
|some fresh green onions and it was great-made 4 servings-with 3 pieces of tofu in each|
And yesterday before my 10 k I had my favorite Smoothie Bowl with fruit
Best fuel for the run
I was also thinking-Since I have my fitness test tomorrow-I SHOULD carb load-Right?
I made the best granola
2 cups old fashioned oats
2 T chia seed
2 T flax seed
1 T sesame seed
1/4 cups almond pieces
1/4 cup pecan pieces
In a pot on medium heat
1/2 cup nut butter ( I used natural peanut butter)
1/3 cup agave nectar
a shot of maple syrup (pure)
1/4 cup almond milk
mix this until it comes together
pour into the dry mixture and mix well
Add some dried cherries and some chopped dark chocolate
Mix again and put on a sheet at 350C for 20 min-Do not mix or stir when it is hot
Take out of the oven and when it cools place in freezer to firm up the chocolate-Break into pieces
