What I Eat in a Day 1/29/17

Breakfast!

In the pancake recipe I swapped out the quick oats with Oat flour. It makes it more calorically dense, and processed, but texture wise, SO worth it. =)

The fruit compote was super easy. I used a frozen berry mix and tart cherry juice because I didn’t have orange juice. YUM!

Lunch:

img_4056So right before Breakfast I went for a 1-2 mile walk with my family, I came home, ate those gorgeous pancakes, did some yoga and then went for a 3 mile run.
After that I can home, showered, got ready and went out to run errands…

BAD IDEA. Hungry Kai= Grumpy Kai. ALL I COULD THINK ABOUT WAS FOOD.

So I stopped by whole foods and made a salad, brought it home and ate it with some extra goodies from the fridge.

Salad Ingredients:

  • Baby Power greens =)
  • red onion
  • cherry tomatoes
  • cucumber
  • beets gold and red
  • butternut squash
  • quinoa
  • tofu

It was a lot of food but I really needed it! So yummy.

Note to self, eat BEFORE going shopping.

Dinner: 

While I was at whole foods I picked up some veggies. Look at that gorgeous Romanesco Broccoli. I did a tray of 1 Romanesco broccoli and 2 parsnips and then a tray of 2 zucchinis, 1 onion and 2 bell peppers. I dry roasted them with just a little black pepper and salt at 425 for about 25-30 minutes. Couldn’t be easier.

The main attraction of this dinner was the tofu with spicy peanut sauce from the incredible Buddhist Chef.  (Sans oil of course). This might be my new favorite dish!

SOO GOOD.

Not Pictured-And orange I demolished while running errands, a slice of sourdough bread with fig preserves on it that I ate while prepping veggies.

This is much more fat than I normally eat in a day but I was feeling super starving from my run and I wanted to make something good for my family to enjoy! SO glad I did.
