AndLy-Your pumpkin panckes sound yummy...care to share your recipe??
Sure! It's not a science I just kind of winged it! I just used regular old Mrs. Butterworth's pancake batter (b/c I was trying to use up stuff I had before I bought new whole wheat or some kind of healthy kind) and used enough for 6 pancakes (I think it was 1 cup dry mix) I added 1/2 - 3/4 cup pumpkin and about 2 tsp pumpkin pie spice and about 1/2 -3/4 cup water - it all depends on things like humidity and stuff and then just cooked them like regular. They stay VERY moist on the inside b/c of the pumpkin so if you don't like them like that then make the batter thinner or cook them longer on lower heat so they don't burn.

Then I cut up an apple into slices and sprayed a small frying pan w/some canola oil spray and cooked the apple along w/about 2 tbsp walnuts and a dash of cinnamon until it was all soft and warm! Then I put it on top of my pancakes. It tastes like a combination of pumpkin pie and apple pie! Enjoy!!!

I don't think I did very well number-wise yesterday but ... I did use up some wilty mesclun. I sauteed it in olive oil margarine, added egg white and montreal steak spice ... rolled it into a tortilla and it was delicious.

It irritates me to toss greens just because we didn't put them away quick enough or they were too wet. I have put them is soup too.

So probably nuts, blueberries, whole grain, spinach, cruciferous veggies ...

Thanks for the info...a couple more questions...

What do you marinade tofu in??

What is Edamame?? I always thought it was a type of cheese. Go ahead laugh!!!

B-Oatmeal, 1 1/2 tsp brown sugar, 1 Tbls ground flax seed, an orange, 8 oz light vanilla soy milk, black chai tea

L- Spinach, Romaine, shredded carrots, brocoli slaw, 1 oz chopped walnuts, 3 oz chicken breast, raspberry vinegrett dressing, 1 cups strawberries, 1/2 cup french vanilla yogurt.

Snack 24 almonds, 1 apple

Dinner- I am in a time crunch tonight so I might just have a can of soup. I know not exactly superfood. But it keeps me in my calorie range, fills me up and it's quick. Although I might add some black beans to it to bump up the protien and add a super food.

I marinate tofu in anything, really. If I don't have a lot of time, I use bottled stir-fry sauce. Edamame are a kind of soybean. They are green-colored, sweet and tender and I love them in salads or stir fries. If you go to a Japanese restaurant, they are frequently available as an appetizer - steamed in their pods, lightly salted. Note, do not EAT the pods (ask me how I know this). Put the pod between your teeth and scrape the beans into your mouth, discard the pods (normally, they give you a little dish for the discard). When I buy them for salads, I buy the shelled, frozen beans (without pods), they are really easy to steam to use for salads.

This link has a picture of edamame in the pod:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Edamame

Awesome edamame link:
http://www.medicinenet.com/script/ma...ticlekey=56288

Here is a recipe for one of my favorite tofu stir fries:

Orange Ginger Tofu Stir Fry

1 lb tofu
1 cup fresh orange juice
¼ cup rice vinegar
1/3 cup shoyu (kind of a soy sauce, substitute soy if you can't find it)
2 tbs canola oil
2 tsp dark sesame oil
3 garlic cloves
1 tbs minced fresh ginger
¼ tsp hot red pepper flakes
1 scallion
¼ cup chopped cilantro
1 jalapeno
5-6 mushrooms
1 orange pepper
1 carrot
1 broccoli crown
1 onion
snow peas
(whatever vegetables you want, those are just a suggestion)

In a medium bowl, wish together orange juice, vinegar, shoyu, oils, garlic, ginger and red pepper flakes.

Place tofu in a baking dish in a single layer, cover with the marinade and sprinkle with the scallions and cilantro. Chop jalapeno and sprinkle on top. Marinate at least 30 minutes (up to over night).

Stir fry tofu with remaining ingredients and serve over brown rice.

Thanks Glory I will give that stir fry recipe a try. I am slowly converting my family to superfoods. I wonder if I can sneak tofu past my husband.

Thursday

B-1/2 c lowfat yogurt, strawberries and blueberries, 2 tbsp walnuts, and I added something new to the mix today. I bought a new cereal the other day at the store and thought I try a bit w/yogurt. I have a crunch thing...I don't do mushy food and I thought this might be better than granola...lower in calories, less fat. Anyway, it's cracklin oat bran, I think that's what it's called. I'll check when I get home from work tonight. I just crumbled up a couple of the little o's and sprinkled them on too. It was really really good!

Also had my regular coffee/soymilk

L-2 pieces organic whole wheat veggie pizza (the last 2 ) topped w/peppercini's! I love a little spice added! and a tangelo

S-tea and clif bar

D-soba noodles w/terryaki stir fry veggies and tofu

S-88 calories dark chocolate


***no exercise today as I was bbsitting my nephews all day before work and had absolutely positively NO time to go for a walk***

Will edit later to add the rest of today's food

Okay, I've been missing here, though not in eating superfoods.

B - omelet with left over broccoli, ww toast
S - tangerine
L - large mixed greens salad, grilled chicken, cauliflower, broccoli, carrots, sesame dressing
s - yogurt
D - leftover salmon (don't know how I'll fix it yet), stir-fry veggies including red/orange peppers, onions, mushrooms and anything else lurking.

My DH left today, and I'm leaving Tuesday, so I'm on a clean out the fridge mission. I see some "unusual" meals in my near future.
