Sorry for the delayed post guys… I’ve had a pretty packed day today so I figured it’d be easier if I just threw everything into one big post. Breakfast today was nothing fancy, just a Strawberry Chobani and a Apple Cinnamon Luna Sunrise bar. I’m not huge on bars, but these are pretty awesome in terms of taste and nutrients. Not chemically tasting or overly dense…
Lunch was leftover Swiss Chard Pie that I thawed out from the freezer. Just as good the second time around! 🙂 I really think I could eat this stuff every day of the week – it’s so good & good for you!! Spinach/ Swiss Chard, scallions, cottage cheese, feta cheese, dill, eggs, flour, olive oil – definitely a super food to fight back against the germ-filled flu season.
I also had a huge Macintosh apple – a very Christmasy lunch with all that red & green!! I was pretty busy today, but I managed to sneak in a granola bar before I headed to the day spa for my appointment only to find out that they screwed up and had no record of my appointment! Grrrr… I went so far out of my way for nothing! In order to make lemons out of lemonade I decided to at least get my exercise in for the day and walk home – I estimate it to be about a 2.5 mile walk. Yes, it was cold out, but trust me, I was moving pretty fast so I stayed warm!
When I got home finally I had a few work-related things to take care of, but in the meantime I prepped an acorn squash for dinner and popped it into the oven to roast while I worked. I had my squash seasoned only with a little rosemary and salt alongside some BBQ Baked tempeh & creamy polenta!
I Baked the tempeh at 400 on a piece of foil after coating the top of each slice with some Bullseye BBQ sauce and Liquid Smoke. They baked about 15 minutes while I got to work on my polenta.
- 1/4 cup stone ground cornmeal
- 1.5 cups water
- 1 tbsp whipped 1% cottage cheese
- 1/2 tsp Vegan natural buttery spread
- 1 tsp salt
All you have to do is bring the water to a boil and then slowly pour in the cornmeal while whisking to prevent clumps from forming. Let the mixture cook down over medium low heat and stir vigorously, adding the butter, salt and then finally cottage cheese. Sooo good!!
I enjoyed dinner while watching Jeopardy – food for your body and food for your brain… 😛 Interesting Fact: My mom was once a contestant on Jeopardy and was even a returning champ!! Very cool in my opinion. Well, I’m off to work on some Christmas ornaments that I’m giving as gifts to friends. Do any of you guys like to make gifts for Christmas, or do you find it easier to just buy them? I know it’s more labor-intensive, but I can never think of what to buy, but can always think of things to make!! Can’t believe it’s less than 20 days away now!! 😀
