Food: summer meals

DC has been really hot last week… we reached 100F several days! So hot breakfast doesn’t sound appetizing anymore. I’ve been having parfait or “messy” breakfast last week and love them!!!

#1 Parfait and chocolate almond milk


layer of quinoa, greek yogurt, peach, more quinoa and walnuts as topping


so refreshing and nutritious


enjoyed every bite of it


#2 A “mess” made with chopped nectarine, greek yogurt and protein brownie


love this combo so much!!!! I have two more brownies, yeah~~~


and a decaf latte with almond milk.


Dinners have been mainly a quick stir-fry, korean side dish and porridge. Last week’s porridge was made with oatmeal and aduki bean


stir fry of napa cabbage, mushroom, dry shrimp and tofu


Another similar combo


celery, tofu and dry shrimp.


A cleaning fridge kind of salad.


A base of greens, sautéed tuscan kale with coconut oil and tamari, top was a serving of broccoli “cheese” pasta bake


Another stir-fry with napa cabbage, tomato, black fungus, tofu and homemade fish ball



Both Saturday and Sunday I had salad for lunch


made with romaine lettuce, tomato, bell pepper, mushroom, 2 boiled eggs and 1 medium avocado. Seasoned with balsamic, lemon and mustard.


Salad is so good with eggs and avocado! Can’t wait to have more!!! 🙂

  1. yeah it’s been insanely hot here too! i am drinking lots of green smoothies! your dinners look so good to me! would you please come cook? 🙂 my fave salad lately consists of a half smashed avocado with mushrooms, yellow squash, olives and pickled egg over romaine. i love all the textures, flavors with that combo!

  2. I think I said it before, but I’m always impressed by how delish your food looks and how healthfully you eat Coco~ahhhh! 😀 And I love fruity salads in the summer, with tangerines or strawberry/blueberry (like from Panera bread-style!)
