Food: food this week


Last week’s breakfast combo has been: orange, soy milk and a protein cake

topped with coconut butter. For the protein cake I use: 1 whole egg, 1 egg white, 1/2 cup pumpkin, 2-3 tbsp coconut flour, 1 tbsp coconut oil, 1 tsp baking powder and 1 tbsp cocoa power. Mix everything and microwave for 3 minutes.

And I finally made macrobiotic balanced plate

It has brown rice, broccoli, chinese cabbage, roasted pepper, beets, butternut squash, tofu, topped with miso paste and seaweed flakes

and the carrot/squash sauce. Simply blend boiled squash, carrot with olive oil and salt.

Wednesday night we invited some friends for dinner. We went to a new vietnamese restaurant close by, Four sisters. We were 5 and ordered the fix menu for six.

I loved this salad, fresh and spicy. I think I devoured half of it before anyone else even tried it.

I didn’t care for the rolls, don’t like fried food nor pork.

My love for squash/pumpkin is finally back! Coincidentally, this week I need extra vitamin A for the baby. 😉
