Lunch was leftover hoisin beets with brown rice wrapped in nori. For a little tang, I cut up an umeboshi plum and addd that. Yummy yum yum. I snacked on an extra sheet of nori a bit later too. I followed it up with a cereal bar for lunch desert (they are almost gone- I'm addicted to these things!).
For dinner I made a deconstructed pasta. I have never been one of those, "my food can't touch!" people, but for some reason I always liked my pasta with just some oil and salt and pepper, and I like my veggies on the side. The real irony is that I then take bites with a little of each thing on the fork. Go figure. I sauteed the zucchini and mushrooms with some garlic in olive oil and salt and pepper, then I tossed my whole wheat rottini in that same pan with the leftover oil and added nutritional yeast to get in all those great curly folds. For the "marinara" effect, I cut up adorable baby tomatoes and ate them fresh.
Like any kid, my daughter loves her mac and cheese (even if the variety I give her is someone unconventional) and the rottini with nutritional yeast were a big hit. She hasn't been eating much lately, but that did the trick!
I had a little caffein in the form of green tea in the afternoon, but drank decaf Earl Greyer in the morning. Later at night I had some chocolate coconut milk which was not as tasty as I had hoped. Back to soy once I finish this carton.
