Breakfast: Short stack of Honey Wheat Pancakes with fresh strawberries, real maple syrup and a sprinkling of powdered sugar. It was AMAZING. I ate almost the whole plate. :) Surprisingly these puppies stuck with me from 8am until 1:30pm!!! I thought for sure that I would be starving by 10.
Lunch: Because I knew I'd be having a large, not-so-healthy breakfast I decided to keep lunch simple and satisfying. I had a baked sweet potato in the fridge so tossed it in a bowl with 1/2 cup edamame and sea salt sprinkled on top. Perfect.
And two more of the Pumpkin Oatmeal Chocolate Chip cookies from my co-worker...
Snack: Nothing! My lunch was so late that I didn't need one.
Dinner: Miso soup and pan-glazed tofu. I wanted to use some of this guy in the spirit of this week's BSI...
I used my favorite recipe from Moosewood for Miso Soup with Tofu and Shitake Mushroom Broth.
And pan-glazed my tofu using this method, but with the following glaze.
- 1/4 cup water (usually this would be veggie broth, but i'm out)
- 2 tbsp low-sodium soy sauce
- 1 tsp minced ginger
- 1 tbsp honey
- 1/2 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
And a lovely glass of cabernet.
Dessert: 1/2 cup fat free french vanilla Stoneyfield yogurt, 1 small pink lady apple and a handful of Annie's Honey Bunny Grahams.
Does anybody have any big weekend plans? I am going to be a knitting machine...my goal is to start and finish a scarf this weekend that will be a Christmas gift. I went to the yarn shop today during lunch to pick up a blend that I'm really excited about! I finished a scarf last night that is also a Christmas gift, but I can't show it because I don't want to ruin the surprise for the recipient! :)
Have a great night!
