Breakfast and dinner
That is seriously what I should change the name of this blog to, ha ha.
For some reason, once again, I managed to just take pictures of breakfast and dinner.
I started this very cold, icy day with a smoothie! Brrr…
Contains: 1 cup of plain soy milk, 1/2 cup frozen pineapple and 4 frozen strawberries. Yum!
I also had an English muffin with PB&J to go with.
Oh, wait! I forgot about the morning snack 😉
I ate a HUGE carrot and tried a new hummus: Athenos artichoke and garlic. I loved it. Hummus can do little wrong by me though.
Lunch was leftover spaghetti. It was good but you’ve seen it. I love leftovers, it really helps stretch my ingredients plus saves money too.
I ate a Larabar after my workout today but it too escaped my lens.
For dinner, I made yet another version of Mama Pea’s roasted chickpeas. Her original recipe was pumpkin spice and I feel like I’ve messed around with it enough to list the ingredients on here.
- 1 can of chickpeas, drained and rinsed
- 1 tsp extra virgin olive oil
- 1 tsp apple cider vinegar
- 1 tsp ground cinnamon
- A few shakes of curry powder
- A few shakes of cumin
- A shake or two of salt
- 1 tbsp Thai Kitchen sweet red chili sauce
Drain and rinse the chickpeas. Add all the other ingredients with them in a bowl and then stir until the chickpeas are coated. Put in the oven at 400 degrees for 15 minutes, stirring around once during cooking.
I think these were my favorite so far. I like to combine sweet and spicy flavors I’ve noticed. But I love experimenting with different flavors. It keeps roasted chickpeas interesting!
The rest of my plate contained mixed veggies, a pita pocket and Smart Balance Light.
I was supposed to go to yoga tonight but I ended up staying home and getting a lot of work done including homework (taking online classes makes me forgetful sometimes), cleaning, and baking for tomorrow night (you’ll see soon).
I just snacked on half an English muffin with PB and chocolate chips 🙂
Thank goodness for tea and 9:00 cut off times. I totally could’ve eaten another one of these!
Do you invent recipes or try out ones that others have come up with?
I love following others’ recipes but I can’t wait to make my own someday.
