Snacky lunch

>> Saturday, February 13, 2010

Today was one of my stellar grazing kinds of weekend lunches. I had Stacy's Simply Naked Pita Chips and hummus. I'm hoping the kids finish the Stacy's bag so I don't have temptation left for me later!


White Chocolate Macadamia

>> Thursday, February 11, 2010

YUP! You're reading it right - I had cookies from Brent and Sam's for lunch - White Chocolate Macadamia dipped in a glass of milk. Got it from Fairway Market the other day. Definitely bad for the diet plan but worth a try while working from home. *LOVE IT*  Plus my body deserves to be spoiled after shoveling that pile of unbelievable heavy snow. I am one of the unfortunates - I hear my muscles crunching...


Thursday - Tempeh Surprise! (Ti)

Today, I had leftovers from dinner so in order to give you the entire story, I have to talk about dinner first.

I had this block of Tempeh in my fridge and since I had never cooked with Tempeh, I had no idea what to do with it. I saw it at Whole Foods and all my vegan cookbooks raved about it but I was so distracted when I bought it, that I didn't really buy any of the ingredients to do anything with it. Duh.

So last night I did the following:

  • Sauteed onions and garlic in olive oil
  • Broke up tempeh block and browned it a bit
  • Tossed in stewed tomatoes, and included just a bit of the juice
  • Ripped up kale (leafy green veg) and tossed that in
  • Added some of my Pampered Chef Sundried Tomato seasoning
  • Tossed in cooked, whole wheat pasta
  • Tossed it around and then served it up

You could add parmesan but I've given up dairy too, so that was out. It was wonderful though! The tempeh sort of reminded me of pine nuts which I cannot eat either but love.

I had leftovers for lunch but even with all the vegan-ness of this dish, I am still reacting to it a bit. Not sure what is setting me off this time. Perhaps, the tempeh was processed where nuts are processed?

Anyway, it was good and even better the 2nd time around.


Tuesday - Where Do the Days Go? (Ti)

>> Tuesday, February 9, 2010

I am a bit behind in posts but here is what I put together for today's lunch:

  • 2 cups of Trader Joe's Organic Lentil soup.
  • 1 slice of whole grain bread, with 2 slices of Tofu cheese, broiled in the toaster oven.
  • 1 apple (which I am about to eat since I am still starving).
  • Water (lots and lots)

With all of this healthy eating, I have lost a few additional pounds. I lose weight all the time and then gain it back, but this time I actually broke a plateau that I've been on for 6 weeks, so I'm happy about that.


Clearing out the fridge lunch

>> Monday, February 8, 2010

I finished up the Chicken and Buttermilk Soup I made last week before it went off and then ate an avocado that had been hanging around here a bit too long as well, as evidenced by the amount of brown I had to scrape out of it. Now I won't feel guilty about adding to the clutter in there with leftovers from tonight's dinner. :-)

I'm catching up here on some lunches, like Clover did in the previous post. Let's see...

I spent virtually all day baking this awesome German Chocolate Ganache Cake for my husband's birthday, sampling everything as I went along, but those nibbles don't count towards lunch, so... I had nachos made with more left over taco seasoned beef over tortilla chips, sprinkled with shredded american cheese and microwaved for about 1 min 30 seconds, served with store bought mango salsa.

Was at my daughter's all day volleyball tournament out of state, so we packed lunch in a cooler and ate it sitting on the floor of the balcony area of the gymnasium. We had turkey sandwiches on whole wheat, plain chips, grapes, an orange, an apple, store bought chocolate chip cookies and iced tea.

MONDAY (today)
I had left over corned beef hash and the smallest amount of sauteed Swiss Chard (diced corned beef, onion, and potatoes cooked in a skillet with salt, pepper and dried thyme), from Thursday night's dinner. Yikes. It tasted fine, but that's cutting it close on the spoil deadline... oops.
