It turned out to be a very nice Sunday! I got lots of studying done, did laundry, and went for an hour walk with the husband while we planned the logistics of our upcoming crazy weekends.
I was pretty hungry when we got back around 5:30 so rather than making a snack and not being hungry an hour later for dinner, we just decided to have an earlier dinner (although we didn’t sit down until 6:30 because the homemade chicken stock on the stove top put a stall on things!)
Grilled Eggplant on Cracked Pepper Bread
with Cilantro Pesto + Goat Cheese
Scrumptious! I love how hearty eggplant is – it’s perfect on a sandwich. Nice and soft for easy biting but firm enough to feel like a thick sandwich. Of course the cilantro pesto and goat cheese (both of which are now gone 😥 ) made it even better. The bun is homemade cracked pepper made today by the husband. He says the recipe needs tweaking, but I thought it was great! It was a lot of bread though (almost 300 kcal) so I’ll probably have half sandwiches with this for my lunches.
We also had grilled asparagus –
And a few flax chips 🙂
I sipped on a mocktail while we prepped dinner –
This dinner was about 530 kcal, 15 grams of fiber and 23 grams of protein.
I’m off to study nerve and muscle fiber labs – night!
Edited to Add:
I got hungry around 8:30 – I ate pretty light today so it didn’t surprise me when my stomach felt empty so soon after dinner.
I decided to try these flattened bananas I got at Trader Joe’s a few weeks ago.
With some PB:
But I actually thought it was kind of gross. Too much like a fruit roll up although it was just banana!? So after 2 bites I gave it to the husband (who LOVED it) and had some trail mix instead:
