The other night I tried out the Sweet Potato Coconut Curry with Tofu, Bok Choy and Caramelized Shallots recipe I found the other day. It was superbly delicious, and a great use of a few sweet potatoes and the bok choy from last week’s CSA box. I made a few adjustments to the recipe to fit my needs:
- Since I avoid unfermented soy, I used tempeh in place of the tofu.
- Instead of brown rice as the recipe called for, I used quinoa for an extra protein boost.
- Just for fun, I omitted the cilantro from the curry and instead steamed the quinoa with it and a little lime juice.
This recipe made plenty and I’ve been eating it for lunch for the past two days now.
Thank goodness for Saturdays! After sleeping in for a little bit this morning, I whipped up some scrambled eggs (1 egg + 2 egg whites) with sauteed mushrooms, spinach, cheddar cheese and avocado with a side of wheat toast topped with homemade peach jam. YUM. I really prefer using a 2 to 1 ration of egg white to eggs because not only does it keep the calorie count on your breakfast down, it also makes the eggs fluffier and tastier in my opinion.
With nothing pressing on the agenda today, I’ve been doing some lounging, cleaning and am currently waiting on my Sweet Potato Bread to come out of the oven. Once that’s finished, I’m going to treat myself to an afternoon at TJ Maxx… ohhhh yeahhhh.
Today is the last day of my 7 Day Ab Challenge that I found on SkinnyMs.com. I planning on knocking this out before dinner tonight, hopefully along with a quick job or walk in the park. Here’s what I have to look forward to:
Side Plank – 20 (10 each side)
Rest – 10 seconds
Side Burpees – 10 reps (5 each side)
Rest – 30 seconds
Plank – Hold 1 minute
Mason Twist – 50 reps (25 each side)
I’m fearful of the side burpees! But the end is in sight and I’m looking forward to sharing my review of the challenge with you come tomorrow.
