Yesterday morning started with my usual: one egg and one egg white sprinkled with nutritional yeast inside a piece of toasted pita bread. I’ve been having pretty much the same exact breakfast for months now and it still hasn’t gotten old.
Since I’ve cut way back on caffeine I have amassed quite the tea collection. Sometimes I will just have hot water with lemon in the mornings but if not, I always go for this tea. There’s something refreshing about starting the mornings with something warm and lemony.
I get up at 7:30 and make breakfast for Greg and will eat mine while his is cooking (we both have eggs & toast/pita every morning). I normally get hungry again around 9 and almost always have an apple with almond butter.
This is a result of me breaking my French press a couple of months back. I had a bag of decaf coffee in the pantry that I had used to gradually shift away from regular coffee and decided to use the last of it up. I put a mesh strainer with a paper towel full of grounds on top of my mug and poured hot water over it slowly. It didn’t taste as good as using the press, but it worked.
For lunch I made Errign’s fried rice recipe. I have been having this for lunch almost daily because it’s just that good. It’s crazy how simple it is too. I add frozen mixed veggies to mine and at first I thought the green beans would be weird in there, but they’re actually really good.
Around an hour later I had a small salad that consisted of field greens, tomatoes, cucumbers, avocado, sunflower seeds, dulse flakes, and Italian dressing.
For dinner I made red curry soup with rice and kale from the Post Punk Kitchen. I made a couple of substitutions and it still turned out wonderful. I swapped the rice with quinoa and used regular curry powder instead of red curry paste. I love this soup (and every recipe I’ve tried on the site) and love that it makes a ton so I can eat leftovers for a couple of days.
I ended the night with this and a mug of peppermint tea and it was awesome.
It’s been a little quiet around here lately and that is mostly due to the amazing weather we’ve been having (seriously, 70° the past few days) and that I just don’t have much to say. My workouts have been consistent and I eat similar foods daily so I don’t want things to get too boring by sharing the same thing over and over again. If you would enjoy daily recaps I will start doing that. If there’s anything else you’d be interested in reading about, have any other suggestions, or enjoy things the way they are let me know!
If you do the Thanksgiving thing, I hope it is wonderful and full of awesome food!
