The dietetics meeting was just OK and I actually left a little early. It was possibly one of the top three worst walks of my life – 30*, dark, raining, and LONG – back to my car. But I made it and blasted the heat on my wet feet the whole way home.
I cleaned out the fridge tonight and made a “stir-fry” if you want to call it that with beans, veggies, bulgur and plain yogurt. My college roommate is Middle Eastern and she taught me to eat plain yogurt on rice – it’s quite delicious and makes a thick paste that has a great texture. I did the same tonight with bulgur and the veggies.
Here’s 1 cup of frozen okra, 1/3 of a green bell pepper, 1 stalk of celery and about 3/4 a cup of navy beans cooked in 1/2 a tsp of olive oil –
I heated up a half serving of leftover bulgur along with 3.5 oz of plain yogurt in the microwave and combined it all in a bowl topped with a little fresh avocado and some red pepper flakes!
It ended up being a little bland (I was too lazy to think of seasonings) so I added some Cholula hot sauce!
I totally should have skipped the Kashi crackers because I am now STUFFED but they were just what I was craving tonight. I opened a box of the Honey Sesame (even though we have open 7-Grains that I didn’t know about – grr!!). I’ve had these before but always remembered them being very similar to the 7-Grain, but they were REALLY good. Much more “honeyy” than I remembered.
All together with my thaw-out hot tea –
A little higher than usual because I decided to have a full serving of crackers: ~588 kcal, 27 grams fiber (!!), and 25 grams protein.
I’m off to get ready for early morning spinning class. I’ll get to the questions and comments tomorrow when the weekend begins!
