After that dinner I didn’t cook for four days! I’d eat out or I’d spend <5 min to prepare a meal. Like this one:
frozen spinach, tofu, brown rice pasta and parmesan all mixed and bake for 15 min
frozen spinach, hummus and smoked salmon in tortilla
and one without salmon
It was simple but quite tasty
As the weather gets warmer, I crave salad. The other day I had lunch with a friend at Mai Thai and she recommended me to have the avocado salad. Oh… my goodness! How did I forgot avocado? I like it soooo much!!! So the next day I got a salad at Sweet and Green with double avocado as topping. It made everything soooo delicious!!!
Love “working on a salad” and watching TV.
On Thursday I finally felt cooking again. I used brown rice flour to make this banana bread.
so simple but really really good. I ate the half batch in <24 hrs 😯
and I made bread
Whole Wheat with Flax Seed
- 2 cups water
- 2.5 cups WW flour
- 1 cup rye flour
- 1/4 cup flax seed, grounded
- 1.25 tbsp yeast
- 1 tsp salt
I really liked the cannelloni that I prepared that night so I made some more for myself. I used almost the exact recipe, except that I used WW flour for the pancakes, and I added tofu in the filling.
2 batch to the freezer and 1 batch topped with tomato sauce
A salad made with butter lettuce, spinach, yellow peppers and smoked salmon with carrot ginger dressing.
finally a good dinner!!! 🙂
Q: What are you craving now? I’m craving salad with avocado!
Today I want to share something very beautiful that I learned from my last yoga retreat. One of the woman called Tami, who is a Yoga-Wear Entrepreneu, told us about her story which you can read from her website. The key words that keep bouncing in my head: if you want to success (not only make money but to truly enjoy what you do in life) you find something that you’re passion about and something that you’re good at, combine them somehow and you have a almost guaranteed successful career. So simple, right? In her case, she has been working in clothing industry and marketing for years, and she has passion about yoga, spiritual path and fitness. So, she quit her job and launched her own company.
Is it interesting? Have you thought about it? You might and I might, but never really think that it can work, right?
Question: What’s your recipe for success?
Okay. Another talk. I’ve been reading a lot about juicing. And I must confess I was so wrong about this topic. I’ve already thought that juicing isn’t necessary or good for you because you throw away a lot of nutrients and fibers that are good for you. But apparently, that’s precisely the whole point. By removing pulps (fibers) you keep only nutrients that will go to your blood right away. If you keep fibers, then you need to first digest them by removing fibers in order to absorb the nutrients. As the live enzymes will be killed in the digestion process, not all of it, but a good part, you won’t benefit 100% by eating the veggie/fruit. This totally makes sense to me, therefore I’m considering to buy a juicer soon.
Question: What’s your thoughts about juicing?
Enough talk, now random eats that I’ve been munching! All YUMMIES!
- Very chocolate right? The surface is a mix of avocado, chia seeds, almond milk and cocoa powder
- it’s not hard to guess what’s underneath of that chocolate pool right?
- latest favorite carb snack
- what I’ve been packing these days: salad (salmon, eggs, greens and tomatos), Almond butter, watermelon, strawberries and Amazing Grass bar
- Monday dinner: scrambled egg (3 whole) with zucchini and steamed broccoli with ketchup
- Another raw meal: zucchini hummus, jicama rice.
- Dessert that I’ve been safely enjoying: kabocha and dark chocolate
yeah~ Kabocha is back!! The good news is that no more bloating!!! The key? Food combining and wait two hours to have dessert after dinner! ^_^
Lastly, a shout out of two gifts from my friend Qiao, who just came back from China, the earring and the bracelet (that I used it at arm bracelet).
