Today for What I Ate Wednesday I thought I'd highlight some of my favourite meals from the week so far:
Favourite breakfast: Oatmeal, as always! Today I made myself this bowl of pumpkin oatmeal with Country Choice Organic multigrain hot cereal with banana, egg whites, chia seeds, granola, raisins, and soy nut butter. With so many different flavour combinations, oatmeal never gets old for me.
Favourite lunch: On Tuesday I got to spend some time in the kitchen doing inventory, and when I saw what they were cooking, I knew I had to get it for lunch (and at half price, baby - the perks of working at a cafe!). It was a lasagna with spaghetti squash and lasagna noodles, sweet potato, spinach, and probably two pounds of cheese - yum! It also came with toast topped with pesto and cheese. This whole meal was amazing. I'm always so impressed with the creative lunch specials that Chef Kat comes up with.
Favourite dinner: On Monday night I made this Quinoa with Brussels Sprouts, Tempeh and Toasted Almonds from one of my favourite cookbooks, Fresh Food Fast. It's a vegetarian cookbook featuring dishes made with real food with a focus on both health and flavour. The author is a culinary school instructor and has won a James Beard Award, so he really knows how to make healthy food taste good.
Favourite snack: These gingerbread date balls that I made - recipe coming soon!
That's it for WIAW - and now I'm off to work for half the day followed by a physio appointment and volunteering. I can't wait until I get home 8 pm when I can just crash on my couch and relax. Have a great day everyone!
