Food: messy parfait, salad and chinese food

I enjoyed very much this week’s food because they’re easy to make, nutritious and fresh enough for hot weather (over 100F!!! :shock:)

Breakfast continued to be “messy parfait”. I love it so much that every morning after I wake up I look forward to my breakfast! 😉

this combo has 2 chopped nectarine, 1 protein brownie, 1/3 cup cottage cheese mixed with 1/4 cup almond milk and 1 tbsp chia seed

After I finished the protein brownie, I made another batch replacing cocoa powder with 1/3 cup shredded coconut.

this combo has the coconut protein cake, 1/2 cup greek yogurt and nectarines.

And one more combo with cottage cheese, almond milk and chia seed (sit at the fridge overnight), coconut protein cake and nectarines. YUM~~~

I just made another batch of protein cake, this time mango & coconut protein cake

  • 1 1/4 cup oats, grounded
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened coconut flakes, grounded
  • 60g protein powder (vanilla)
  • 200 g mango, puree
  • 1/2 cup egg white
  • 1/2 cup almond milk
  • 1/2 tbsp baking powder
  • 42g chopped walnuts
  • 1/4 cup NuNaturals stevia baking blend
Mix wet and dry separately and bake at 350F for 30 min.
Salad is all I crave during this hot weather. So whenever I have lunch at home, I’d make a nutritious salad

this one has chopped romaine, mushrooms, cherry tomatoes, cucumber, tofu, corn and half large avocado. Dressing: balsamic, olive, mustard.

this one used kale and Mama Pea’s sunshine salad dressing

Same salad ingredients as the previous one and the dressing is made using 1 tbsp tahini, 2 tbsp water, 1 tbsp vinegar, 1 tbsp nutritional yeast, minced garlic, salt and pinch of stevia.

And my favorite salad combo this week!!!

Food: dinners at home

The weather has been warm, almost like summer so all I wanted was fresh veggies! Everyday in the afternoon, I’d call my mom and tell her what I want for dinner and she’ll prepare them for me! What a great mom she is! 🙂 Unfortunately she’s leaving next weekend. She needs a break in China and she will come back before the baby arrives! 🙂
