DRose- Now I want to make stirfry and that delicious sounding mexican rice bowl. What kind of rice do you use? Is it hard to make?

DRose
10-13-2008, 09:37 PM
Aww I would tell you about the rice bowl but I really don't know. I get it from the burrito place on campus. I'm sure any sort of Mexican or Spanish rice will due.. I wonder if Zataran's makes any?

Today:

Breakfast:
Bowl of low-fat yoghurt with muesli and a teensy little bit of sugar.

Lunch:
2 x bread roll with diet margarin and cheese - one whole-grain, one white.

Snacks
1 x automaton chocolate milk
10 grapes

Dinner:
Was supposed to be wraps with hummus and salad. I made the hummus, but cut my finger quite badly on the blender. And I had a ****ty day overall. So I decided to go for the lentil-spinach curry I still had in the freezer. Less work but equally healthy. I'll add some noodles and an egg. And some yoghurt with grapes after.


Also I went on a shopping spree in my local Moroccan food shop because my day was ****ty. This is what I bought:
-loads of garlic
-a bunch of fresh coriander
-tomato's
-onions
-grapes
-canned chickpeas
-a jar of tahin
-dried blueberries (for in my yoghurt - quite expensive but if this will cut sugar out of my diet completely it is worth it. I am unable to eat yoghurt with nothing.)
-dried mung beans (for that sprouted mung bean salad I want to try).

Healthy shopping sprees - they do exist!

I normally eat the same things on a daily basis. Things may change here and there, but things I consume almost daily are:

Danon Shillouette Yogurt - it's super low fat, and incredibly yummy. I love cherry, peach, strawberry banana, vanilla.... the list could go on and on, they have some wonderful flavours. I eat this yogurt religiously everyday.

Apples

Bananas

1 peice of multigrain bread, cut into 2 slices, with peanut butter and honey on top. :)

A snack I've recently become fond of is apple slices with cheddar cheese. Yum.

Cottage cheese with frozen blueberries mixed in (defrosted obviously) ;)

veggie burgers (Lick's brand, not sure if they sell them in the States)- I eat these often, usually once a week. On a whole wheat bun.

steamed cauliflower and brocolli with grated parmasean cheese on top.

I wish I could be a little more healthy like find time for breakfast in the mornings. :( Tuesday is a hard day because I have work and school (9AM to 10 PM) without a real break. By the end of the day I want to eat everything in sight. Also, I drink WAY too much. My usual amount is at least 4 beers a day. Oh and a pack of cigarettes. Its terrible.
