I woke up today so dang sore. I skipped the gym this morning and went to the temple instead. My gym friend Aubrey was going and I decided to tag along since it has been a while. So I have felt crappy all day. But, at least I did something good.
I made myself a little parfait before I left. The usual.....plain greek yogurt, raw oats, blueberries. This is one of those go to meals that can be made in seconds and includes protein, carbs, and a fruit. Fabulous.
I was in a cereal mood today so Kashi and unsweetened almond milk is what I had when I got home.
Lunch was mixed greens with cottage cheese and balsamic vinegar. I had a side of hot chocolate protein. I'm addicted to the stuff. Completely.
Dinner tonight is squash soup. I just peeled and cubed a big squash, put in a pot and covered it with chicken stock and 1 cup of coconut milk. When the squash is soft puree it in a blender and then add it back to the pot. Stir in some nutmeg and salt and pepper. So easy.
2 pds. of chicken, pork, or steak
6 Tbs. low sodium soy sauce
1 Tbs. sesame oil
1 Tbs. sesame seeds
1 Tbs. agave nectar
I used my vegetable peeler to slice my veggies. I also used cilantro because I didn't have green onions on hand.
Mix all the ingredients together and let marinate for an hour or so. While this is marinating I cook up some brown rice.
Saute until veggies are tender and the chicken and done.
You can use iceberg lettuce for these for we prefer romaine in this house. Top a leaf with brown rice and the chicken mixture. So good. This is my M.I.L. recipe but I altered it a teensy bit. Try it.
It is going to be a late night tonight and I have to be up at five. Suck. It should be fun though since I will be working with my sissies all night.
