Food: not creative but I like these

Last week I wasn’t creative at the kitchen… well… I haven’t been since I got pregnant. I had one breakfast combo everyday, two dinner combos that I switched up and I love them despite how boring they sound.

Breakfast: wrap with LC, steamed spinach, 2 fried eggs and mustard

and a smoothie made with 1 cup of almond milk and half cup of frozen strawberries

simple and tasty.

On Monday night I went to a graduation party of my friend Belen. She prepared quite a lot of finger food for the guests

and a lovely flower arrangement

I tried few of the food but didn’t dare to eat much because it was dinner time and I’d better stick with simple and low sodium options. So when I got back home, I made a soup and a wrap

a wrap filled with eggs, LC, spinach and roasted bell pepper

The two combos that I’m currently obsessed are

#1: tortilla pizza and kale stir-fry with coconut oil

IMG_7403

I use 1 tbsp of coconut oil to sautéed onion, mushrooms, carrots and half bunch of kale

IMG_7400

the sweetness of the coconut oil is really special for a savory dish. This tortilla pizza has roasted bell pepper, spaghetti squash, cheese and tons of italian seasoning and black pepper.

Every night before getting home, I’d think about what I want for dinner. I’d think many options and recipes that I’ve been wanting to make, but at the end this combo always called my name. It’s tasty, it’s ready in <20 min and I love it!!! :D

Dessert combo has been 1/2 cup of pumpkin topped with greek yogurt, 1/2 cup of fiber one (if I didn’t have that morning) and a special drink that I discover to avoid pregnancy-constipation. It’s made with black fungus and chinese red dates. Basically I cook them in slow cooker for 12 hrs, then blend it and drink 1 cup every night. It works like wonders! :lol:

Another combo

this time, I used spinach,, spaghetti squash and cheese.

and more…

2 small tortilla pizza, one with roasted bell pepper, broccoli slaw and cheese

the other one with spinach, tofu and cheese

IMG_7426

and a miso soup with collard greens and celery.

IMG_7428

YUM YUM~~~

The second combo I’ve been loving is stir-fry rice with veggies and tofu/egg

IMG_7420

this one has 1 cup of brown rice, 2 cups of celery chopped thin, 1/2 cup carrots and 1/4 block of firm tofu. Seasoned with Goya Azafran seasoning, S+P.

IMG_7421

Another combo was also very good

IMG_7431

1 cup brown rice, 2 fried eggs, 1/5 pack firm tofu, 1 cup celery, 1 cup chopped red cabbage and 1/2 cup carrots.

IMG_7432

I don’t know why I can never make a stir-fry rice that is rice based instead of veggie based. I think I just love veggies too much, so every time I prepare something, I load on veggies! :)

Snacks

1/2 medium water melon eaten with a spoon… old method… perfect for a summer day afternoon.

Mama Pea’s chocolate protein ice cream

IMG_7423

I recently bought a new blender that can crush ice so I had to try this. It’s ABSOLUTELY amazing!!! No doubt that Mama Pea has it almost every night!!! I think I’ll follow her routine! ;)

I’ve been drinking a lot of decaf ice coffee. Maybe it’s because it’s getting warm, or maybe I just love the experience of sipping through slowly! ;) So I bought a Starbucks ice coffee mug and made it at home! ;)

IMG_7434

and to make it special, I add 1-2 drops of almond extract! What a brilliant idea!!! :)

IMG_7435

So, that’s all for last week’s food. I haven’t figured out what I’ll be having for this week… maybe a little more lingering on these two favorite combos so far! :)

Q: Are you obsessed with any food lately?

Food: breakfast and lunch

Last week after I finished the frozen waffles that I made over the weekend, I switched to savory breakfast combo.

A wrap with laughing cow cheese and Tj’s lightly whipped cream cheese, lettuce, roasted bell pepper and a big fried egg.

IMG_7376

roll and enjoy! ;)

IMG_7379

I used this Whole Sweet Peppers… love it!

IMG_7375

On Sunday, I wanted a sweet breakfast. So made blueberries pancakes, served with almond milk and two oranges.

IMG_7390

Really easy to make pancakes: 1/3 cup of Bob red mill’s organic high fiber pancake/waffle mix, 1/3 cup almond milk, 1/3 cup frozen blueberries, stevia/cinnamon/vanilla extract, 1/2 tsp baking powder and 1 tbsp flax meal.

IMG_7392

I like it a lot so I made some more for the week. I hope the freezing method works with pancakes too.

Lunches.

#1: roasted asparagus, roasted butternut squash and turkey meatball with marinara sauce. One of my favorite combo at our cafeteria. I had it twice last week.

IMG_1008

one day I bought a wrap from home.

IMG_1010

A simple egg salad made with boiled eggs, celery, parsley, greek yogurt, mayonnaise and curry powder.

IMG_1011

and blueberry cheesecake for dessert.

IMG_1012

I found bringing wrap for lunch very convenient, so I brought the following day this combo: 2 fried eggs, LC, cream cheese, roasted bell pepper and lettuce.

IMG_1019

YUM~

IMG_1020

Another lunch staple at work: Vietnamese noodles. This one has rice vermicelli, teriyaki chicken, assorted vegetables and miso ginger broth.

IMG_1013

Lunch at home (Saturday and Sunday).

IMG_7380

butter lettuce, tomato, lemon juice and olive oil

IMG_7381

tortilla pizza. Toppings: spiralized zucchini, roasted bell pepper, mozzarella, tons of italian seasoning, S+P.

IMG_7383

Love the burned cheese

IMG_7384

the next day I wanted more pizza. So the same pizza combo and a soup

IMG_7393

miso soup with radish, bok choy and arame. very detoxing! ;)

IMG_7394

My goal for lunch nowadays is to get as much as protein as possible since I prefer a macrobiotic meal for dinner. Every other day I’d get some sort of protein from animal, either chicken, turkey or fish. And the other day I’d have tofu, egg or beans. With this in mind, I’ve been able to get 70-100 g of protein in a daily basis.

Q: Do you like wraps? What are your favorites fillings?

Food: meals

Since I rediscover my love (a short one) of stir-fries, I had it several times last week, mixed with other meals.

#1: lotus roots, bell peppers, onion, mushroom, bamboo, romaine and tofu with olive preserve olive leaf

IMG_7070

served with oatmeal

IMG_7071

#2 Miso soup with seaweed and mushrooms

IMG_7063

It’s highly detoxing this soup.  I had it with a grilled wrap filled with scrambled tofu with onion and asparagus

IMG_7062

IMG_7060

IMG_7064

#3 Seafood rice porridge

IMG_7082

#4 Another stir fry made with onion, mushrooms, brussel sprouts, peppers, romaine and tofu with a miso-tahini-ginger sauce.

IMG_7080

served with toasted tortilla

IMG_7081

#5 A staple soup (that I’m getting sick of): tomato seaweed soup with tons of white pepper

IMG_7084

tortilla pizza using May’s magical sauce

IMG_7086

I follow almost exactly her method

1. Heat the tortilla on stove in a oven prove pan

2. Spread it with 2 tbsp of tomato paste mixed with italian seasoning and minced garlic

3. Top veggies as desire. I used broccoli and eggplant this time.

4. Spread the magical cheeseless sauce: 2-3 tbsp hummus, 1 tbsp nutrition yeast, 1 tbsp water

5. Dizzle tahini (I used 1/2 tbsp) diluited with water

6. Broil for 5 min until cripsy

7. Cut it with something really sharp! (I’m getting a pizza cutter tonight!)

IMG_7087

Fantastic meal! I enjoyed every bite of it! Besides that this is more healthy than conventional pizza, I like its taste much more and it won’t disturb my stomach and guts!!! YEAH~ Obviously I’m going to have it more… hopefully I don’t get sick of it too soon!

Q: Do you like unconventional pizza? which one?
