Not plastic! Yep, the ole plastic food came out in Community Nutr. today. We had fun playing around 🙂
Kelsey did NOT like it!!
The real food tasted better though 😉
My bean pizzas held me over really well today. I snacked on these dried mangos (half a bag) by Peeled when I got to class. These were hands down the best dried mangos I’ve ever had. Not too tough like it can get. And not sweetened either!
And hour later I dove into my packed dinner. I came home so hungry last night, I felt like eating during tonight’s class. So I made dinner at lunchtime and packed it up!
This was a delicious chilled salad with a base of millet. The ingredients all tossed together:
- 1/3 cup cooked millet (or quinoa or couscous or pasta or wheatberries)
- 1 can garbanzo beans, drained
- ~1 cup veggies – 1 small zucchini, 3 mushrooms, 2 tomatoes
- 3 tbsp gorgonzola
- 3 tbsp walnut pieces
- Dressing: 4 tbsp lemon juice (2 whole medium lemons) + 1 tbsp olive oil
Makes about 7 cups – perfect for packing in advance! Because I knew you’d ask, I estimated the calories per cup at about 150.
And perfect for scooping up with chips! Yum Popchips!
And because a 3 hour class is always more fun with chocolate, I packed this Bliss bar to share with my friends! I had 3 pieces and they had the other 3. This chocolate tasted GOOD!!!!!
Once home (2.5 hours later) I was hungry and the chocolate party continued – over cottage cheese! I never would have thought of this combo (er, I guess I did..but you know!) but it was totally awesome!!!
Matt broke his bakery curfew and JUST got home from a night out with his friends and went to bed. He’s going to be sleepy tomorrow!
I’m off to join him for some reading
