Is it seriously May already? Where is 2013 going??? Oh well, it’s not like I’m going to complain about summer approaching!
This has been another wonderful week of meals. I took pictures on Saturday (and a few other randoms throughout the week that you can see on Instagram: @veglindz), so you could get a little peek at all the good stuff cooking over here!
I started my day with one of my new favorite types of tea: kukicha or twig tea.
This is another one of those goodies that I learned about from studying macrobiotics. It is made from the same tea plant that green tea is made of, but from the stems, rather than the leaves. It results in a nice, mild tea, with 90% less caffeine than regular green tea.
Breakfast was pretty unusual for me, but I loved it!
I sauteed up some kale, sliced mushrooms, and garlic, and served it with half an avocado, and a hard-boiled organic egg. I have been eating organic eggs a bit more frequently lately. For some reason, legumes have been giving me a bit of a stomach ache sometimes lately, so I needed a replacement source of protein. If there is one thing eggs are definitely good for it’s protein. Egg yolks do contain quite a bit of cholesterol, but I figure if I’m not eating many other animal products, then eating an egg every once in a while isn’t going to hurt me. Eggs are also a good source of vitamin B12 and selenium. It’s nice to know I’m getting at least part of my B12 from a natural source, and as an added bonus, selenium is a powerful cancer fighter, and will give you beautiful skin.
My lunch at work was an arugula salad with red onion, radish, and carrot.
Dinner was a bowl of my red lentil and quinoa curry soup.
Usually I would eat something later in the evening, but I was too lazy/tired to move my booty off the couch to the kitchen Saturday night. I did have a dark chocolate-covered caramel that Keenan brought home for me, but that was it for the day.
