Busy day today– dentist, shoulder therapy, shopping at the farmer’s market and Wegmans, cooking frenzy and then a small crew from Engine 2 came over for dinner. As always, the company was fabulous and the food was fresh and delicious. Bernie shared a great idea for planning ahead and ensuring she has great lunches. She made her salads for Monday through Friday in mason jars and put them in the fridge and her Friday salad was as fresh and delicious as the one she had Monday! I can’t wait to see her pictures of her salad in a jar. She is our newest member along with Robin and they are both doing great and feeling great! Gail saved the day for me by helping me chop many veggies and had she not come, the Thai carrot soup would not have happened. The puppies were also very glad to see her! So, yes, you can still have pizza parties when you eat a plantstrong diet, and NO we do not eat like birds around here!
Breakfast- Oats with banana, blueberries, raisins, grape nuts and almond milk.
Lunch- Veggie sushi and a banana at Wegmans
Supper- Engine 2 feast: I made whole wheat pizza crusts using a Happy herbivore recipe and I used white whole wheat flour instead of whole wheat pastry flour, home made sauce and Virginia and her son Robin assembled 2 pizzas for us. One pizza had basil and fresh tomatoes, onions, red bell pepper and hummus and one had spinach, onion, red bell pepper and hummus on 1/2. Gail prepped the veggies for Thai carrot soup from “My Beef with Meat,” and we added jasmine brown rice to it. Gail and I also made corn tortilla chips with fresh lime juice and chipotle seasoning since we knew Edie was making home made salsa with corn. Virginia made a veggie medly with chickpeas and great spices, and Bernie brought pineapple, blueberries, and strawberries that went great with the watermelon and berries we had. I also steamed some sweet corn and also some kale with garlic powder and fresh lemon juice.
