Po’Boys + Asian Slaw

March 31, 2008

Exams are calling me! Taking Stats tomorrow morning – yikes!

Tonight’s dinner was simple and yummy.

Shrimp Po’Boys (minus the fried part) = shrimp + sauteed peppers + avocado + dijon mustard on a sprouted bun


Plus Robin Miller’s Asian Broccoli Slaw. Broccoli slaw is found near the packaged stir-fries (near the bagged spinach and lettuce) in my grocery store. Already chopped and ready to go, you can’t get much easier! We followed the recipe pretty closely, reducing the sesame oil a bit and adding cilantro. We used Tamari instead of soy sauce (a new purchase that I like much more). More info on Tamari.



The sandwich was hard to eat but delicious!


All together –


This dinner was about 375 kcal, 15 grams fiber and 24 grams protein.

Afternoon Snack

Gotta love pumpkin bread and hot tea to warm me up on this frigid day! I put a little Smart Balance on the pumpkin –


I hope to get to comments tomorrow during lunch. See you guys after this exam is O.V.E.R!

I am not sure if this link will take you to the recipe or not.

Tamari’s a great choice. When I switched to it, I immediately noticed the better flavor, and best of all, it’s lower in sodium and less processed!


6 Ally March 31, 2008 at 8:47 pm

That slaw looks really great!

Good luck on your exam, I’m sure you’ll do great!


7 Ashley March 31, 2008 at 8:54 pm

8 Betsy March 31, 2008 at 8:54 pm

what a cute picture!!

i’ve always wanted to try broccoli slaw but I’ve never seen it at my local awful grocery store. Maybe I’ll request it!


9 Megan March 31, 2008 at 9:20 pm

mmmm, the asian slaw looks and sounds delish! I wanna try it! I’ve never heard of tamari before but now I’m intrigued about it!
Kath or anyone else–have you tried the Bragg’s AminoAcids stuff that’s supposed to be soy sauce like??? Which is better?? Braggs or tamari?? I LOVE soy sauce, but if there’s something that’s healthier and better for me, then I’m all for it!!
p.s. good luck on your test tomorrow!! :)

You are so cute! :)


11 Cara March 31, 2008 at 9:35 pm

That looks absolutely amazing. I think shrimp will definitely be in the shopping basket this week :-) Mmm.


12 Kelly T March 31, 2008 at 11:22 pm

You always come up with clever things, I dont know how you do it. I recycle through the same two meals, and thats including breakfast, lunch, and dinner.


13 Karen March 31, 2008 at 11:23 pm

That looks delicious! Hope you do well on your exams tomorrow!


14 Courty March 31, 2008 at 11:44 pm

Kick some stats butt, Kath!


15 Nikki April 1, 2008 at 4:49 am

Kelly T – lmao! I do the exact same thing! I’m trying to be a bit more creative, but its hard on a college budget and being in Australia studying, where I don’t recognize half the stuff in the grocery store!

good luck, Kath!


16 Katie April 1, 2008 at 6:25 am

Dinner looks wonderful. That sandwich is HUGE! lol. It makes me *almost* want to forget the fact that I decided not to cook dinners this week. :)


17 VeggieGirl April 1, 2008 at 6:36 am

what a great, comforting dinner; and of COURSE the pumpkin bread looks scrumptious (you must find that maple-butter to have with it!!)

best of luck on your exam today!!! you’ll rock it!! :0)


18 Kath April 1, 2008 at 7:08 am

I haven’t heard of Braggs but I love the tamari. It’s got a lot more flavor than soy sauce just by the smell alone.



19 Holly April 1, 2008 at 8:25 am

hey Carrie,

I’m not from WI, but I am right on the border pretty much. I live in Cottage Grove, MN. Where are you from? I grew up in WI, and that’s where ALL my family is, so I go there lots!


20 Melissa April 1, 2008 at 11:13 am

Hey Carrie! I am from Central Wisconsin (Stevens Point)….what about you?


21 Teresa April 1, 2008 at 11:57 am

That sandwich looks amazing! I bought shrimp for dinner tomorrow but I may use it for lunch today! :-)


22 Carrie April 1, 2008 at 8:52 pm
