Lunch held me over well today – I think it was too much produce in one sitting! 😳 I didn’t really want a snack until around 5:15 when I was packing my lunch for tomorrow I got slammed with hunger and needed carbs.
Enter the hunka hunka burnin’ loaf:
Had a couple of bites off of him. Hit the spot!
I decided to take tonight to relax, since yesterday did not leave much room for any. And it was a rainy day, so a great day for a rest. Came home and got to work on some of my projects. Not exactly relaxation, but helped clear my brain from some of the things building up while I’ve been busy at my internship.
I also decided to MAKE DINNER tonight!! I’ve put together some simple suppers, but I haven’t made a real dinner in ages – thanks to Matt! I really enjoyed cooking. I miss it!
Coconut Mango Tempeh Stir-Fry
I enjoyed a coconut water and seltzer mocktail while I cooked 🙂
Folks, this is tempeh. It’s like mushed together rice and grains (I buy Lightlife’s Three Grain Tempeh) It tastes like of earthy like mushrooms, a bit like chicken, but mostly like rice.
I used 2/3 of the block in dinner tonight –
And used some of this coconut oil as my saute oil. I MISS COCONUT BUTTER!! Haven’t had time to re-stock or attempt to make any. Sadness. (We decided not to use the other butter – it was a bit old)
Tempeh was sauteed with a veggie mix of bok choy (LOVE!), broccoli, carrot and red pepper – with mango and coconut and tamari and salt and pepper. A side of brown rice.
And a drizzle of honey! Matt’s idea. Quote: "Meals are more fun with bears."
I wrapped up in Oncology today (really enjoyed it) and move on to Cardiology tomorrow.
Going to READ = RELAX!
