Veggie Day!

Good afternoon everyone!

Hope everyone’s day is going well (and if not, remember it is NEVER too late to turn your day around 🙂 ).  I woke up and started my day off right with some green goodness:

Green Monster

This baby had in it:

  • 3 kale leaves
  • 1 TB flaxseeds
  • 1 dollop vanilla yogurt
  • 1/2 frozen, overripe banana
  • 1.25 C 1% milk

While I was calculating my calories in yesterday’s eats, I got curious about the amount of protein in this GM as I honestly didn’t think it would be much and was concerned that it perhaps wasn’t a balanced breakfast. Did you know that this baby has 22 GRAMS of protein in it?! WOW!!! No wonder I feel full–fibre, good fats, protein…what’s not to love???

For lunch, I debated between several different options but really just wanted something warm and comforting. Since I’m already planning on making soup this evening, I made an herbed, goat cheese frittata!

Herbed, goat cheese frittata

To make frittata for one (me!), I used:

  • 2 eggs
  • 1/8 C 1% milk
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • parsley
  • chives
  • thyme
  • 1 shallot–finely chopped
  • 15 g (half a serving) of chevre

I used PAM cooking spray to cook. This was absolutely divine! I ate this really slowly and just savoured all the flavours. I had a large mug of coffee with about 1/3C 1% milk in it after lunch.

Since I realized I hadn’t had anything with any meat or poultry so far, I decided I would continue the day meat free. Tonight I’m going to make my Butternut Squash & Apple Soup. I’ll post the recipe plus photos this evening.
