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.
Love it! 🙂
Lunch highlight of the week: turkey meat loaf, wild rice salad with chickpea and roasted squash
and a side of salad made with greens and asparagus
salad topped with grilled shrimp
sauteed veggies with shrimp using TJ’s Thai Red sauce and “noodles”
Soup made with kimchi, chinese cabbage, black fungus, fish balls and “noodles”
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.
Young lotus root salad with shrimp and pork
I loved this salad, fresh and spicy. I think I devoured half of it before anyone else even tried it.
crispy pork spring rolls
I didn’t care for the rolls, don’t like fried food nor pork.
vietnamese sweet and sour soup with vegetables and seafood
It was good, had two cups.
chinese broccoli sautéed with garlic
I love how garlic it was, had at least 1/3 of the plate
shrimp sautéed with garlic and scallion
grilled lemon grass chicken
caramelized fish in a clay pot
I was too full for all these and they arrived.
Another balanced plate: rice, zucchini, broccoli, green bean, butternut squash, chinese cabbage, tofu and miso paste
top with the shredded seaweed that I bought from Argentina
and the carrot/squash sauce
Snacks I had this week at work:
And finally for dessert every night, I’ve been having butternut squash topped with coconut butter.
My love for squash/pumpkin is finally back! Coincidentally, this week I need extra vitamin A for the baby. 😉
Q: What are you loving this week?
