What I Ate – Monday’s Menu

Linking up with Peas and Crayons for What I Ate Wednesday.

 


 

Here was Monday’s eats:

Morning Juice Ingredients (which I had to re-arrange when I realized the first arrangement (with the cuke and carrot perpendicular to the bag, between the two round fruits) looked rather, uh, male)

The Juice. I hadn’t juiced in a few weeks, but felt the need for an instant energy fix after a rough night with my sick little guy.  The juice did it’s magic and had me feeling almost normal and ready to face a day of kid chasing.

Breakfast a couple of hours later was steel cut oats topped with bananas, coconut and pecans.

I snacked on some Hail Merry Grawnola while writing my review and giveaway.  Good stuff.

For lunch I turned leftover Cracklin Cauliflower from Peas and Thank You into a curried cauliflower soup.  I added some vegetable broth, a splash of rice milk and half of a (leftover) boiled potato and blended away.  My husband has an almost instant gag reflex to even the smell of curry powder, so I have to consume my RDA of curries during lunch.

Before:

After:

It made two of these bowls and I ate both.

I had a afternoon snack of a banana-almond milk-coconut smoothie.  Which looks awesome atop an Elmo placemat.

For dinner I made pizzas.  The kids had a cheese pizza which they barely touched.  Nice.  The husband and I did our usual his and hers pizza.  He had chicken apple sausage with peppers and I had spinach, goat cheese, pine nuts and red peppers.  We ate the whole thing.  Nice.

Looking back, it was a pretty appliance heavy day.  I used the juicer, rice cooker (to cook the oats overnight), Vita Mix (twice), Kitchen Aid (to make the pizza dough), stove top and oven.  No wonder I felt all dishwashed out that night.

Thanks for stopping by to check out my eats.  Go enter the Hail Merry giveaway and come back Friday for another giveaway.
