For breakfast today I had oatmeal with maple sugar. I splurged and added some Brown sugar too.
For lunch I made a Red Lentil Dal and had it over rice. This is a picture of what was left that I will have for lunch over the next few days. No cooking lunch for a while!
Dinner tonight is steamed butternut squash and pasta with a taste of butter and some parmesan.
Breakfast is ready for tomorrow too. I soaked 1/2 cup of quinoa today. I drained the water and covered the quinoa in my thermos with boiling water. In the morning it will be cooked and delicious!
This was our yummy lunch today. I call it the default salad because it is what we eat when I don’t have something else planned. I will share the recipe with you:)
1 head romaine, chopped
3 tomatoes, chopped
2 cups in season vegetable(we used asparagus from our garden!)
1/4 red onion, chopped
4 hard boiled eggs
4 small handfuls croutons (we like to make our own out of whole grain bread when we have time)
4 Tablespoons ground flax
4 Tablespoons raw sunflower seeds
Divide the ingredients between 4 different plates or large bowls and top with your favorite dressing.
The dressing I used is my Better Than Ranch with green onions that made it green:)
Better Than Ranch
1 T. White wine vinegar
1 T. Lemon juice
1 1/2 T. Nama Shoyu or Liquid Amino or soy sauce
1 Clove garlic
2 Green onions or sliver of red or sweet onion
1 t. Mustard
1/2 cup vegenaise or mayonnaise or almondaise
1/2 c. Sunflower seeds
1/2 c. Water or almond milk
When blended pulse in:
1 T. Fresh parsley
1 T. Fresh Chopped chives
Grind the nuts and add the rest to be blended together.
I used a cheap version of a magic bullet to make the dressing and it worked great.
Happy Helathy !
