Good morning! First of all, thanks to those of you that told me to get my butt to yoga class yesterday. Sorry to tell you this, but it didn’t work out….I got stuck in traffic on the way home, then Riley needed me to stop at the store before coming home. By the time I got to the house he was in the middle of cooking dinner and I wouldn’t have made it in time anyway. I compensated by spending extra time stretching at the gym this morning, though, so that kind of counts, right? <sigh> Whatever, can’t win ’em all.
I had a random sample of some vegan protein powder in my pantry, so I decided to use it to whip up a quick smoothie for breakfast.
I threw in the protein powder, a banana, peanut butter, ice and almond milk. Turned out pretty good. Nothing to write home about- it would’ve been better with chocolate (obviously).
Smoothies don’t usually keep me full until lunch. This one did, but maybe just cause I was so freakin’ busy all morning!
Once at work, I had the requisite two cups of coffee. Ahh, coffee…what would I do without you?
I went to a Korean restaurant with a co-worker for lunch. He introduced me a few weeks ago to this fabulous food and I think I might be hooked. First we shared the sides- I’ve discovered I really like kimchi.
Then the main course- bibimbap! Otherwise known as heaven in a stone bowl with an egg on top. I could seriously eat that stuff every day. If you’ve never had bibimap, it’s basically rice and veggies cooked and topped with a fried egg that cooks into the meal while you eat it. Some come with meat, others don’t. The crowning glory of this meal comes in the form of a red pepper sauce (really similar to sriracha) that’s crazy addictive. If anyone knows where I can get that red pepper sauce (without having to make it, because let’s be serious- I probably won’t do that), let me know.
I was totally stuffed from lunch and didn’t get hungry again until dinner. Riley was preparing to make a stir fry and when I told him I had Korean food for lunch he improvised and made a sort of Mexican stir fry: Brown rice, steak strips, corn, black beans, onion, peppers, and salsa.
They’re almost gone and it makes me sad.
Dessert was followed by the usual:
And that’s another full day of eats in the life of Kelly! I feel pretty good about how I ate yesterday. I got a good amount of veggies, protein, fruit, and grapes in during the day. And yes, I count my wine as grapes.
I often wonder if people like seeing all the pictures of stuff I eat. Then I realize that if people are anything like me, we’re all super nosy and love every second of it, so I hope you’ve enjoyed checking out yesterday’s meals. Can’t wait to hear about what you’re eating these days!
What’s the best thing you’ve eaten this week?
