What I ate Wednesday.

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!

Default Salad Recipe

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:)

Serves 4
Default Salad

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 !
