What are you EATING right now?
« on: May 14, 2013, 02:37:41 PM »
Hey everybody! In the spirit of the "What are you listening to?" thread, I've got to ask: what are you eating right now? Share your breakfast, lunch, dinner, or snack!

I'm having salted peanuts in the shell from Costco. Om nom.

Granola: Rolled oats and peanuts with cinnamon and maple syrup.

Trying out new recipes from Mark Bittman's How To Cook Everything while I have it from the library.

About to go to an unmustachian breakfast put on by my professional association.

Guessing there will be the enough food there to feed a small African country. Glad I'm not paying.

Kroger brand blueberry bagel with cream cheese, extra sharp cheddar (why is american cheese so bland and boring?), cucumber, green olives, ham, lettuce. Gently heat up the bagel in the toaster or microwave beforehand. Bliss.

Hamburger with hot sauce on it and asparagus.  And baby carrots.  I have to fill up before I go to the grocery store or it could get ugly.

I'm eating a huge 97 cent loaf of crusty french bread from the supermarket.

It was an impulse buy. :(

Cous cous with roasted green pepper, baby tomatoes and mint, lemon juice and olive oil. Garlic sautéed zucchini and summer squash. Pressure cooked fresh lima beans dressed with lemon juice and olive oil. Spouse and son had a veggie patty on the side. All veg and the mint were from our CSA box delivery this afternoon.

For dinner, we had tossed salad with homemade catalina dressing and then Trader Joe beef raviolis (fresh) so good.

I just put a batch of cookie dough into the fridge to chill. http://orangette.blogspot.com/2008/07/bold-statement.html
these are my very most favorite choc chip cookies, ever. they taste like gourmet cafe cookies.

I also finished drinking my latest batch of kefir. I have a jar on first ferment and a jar on second ferment on the counter.

I limit my dairy so a dairy free fermented kefir is good for me. Also, cheap drinks! And I end up using my soda stream less since the kefir is fizzy.

Lunch/fast breaker:
Meatza (grass fed local ground beef w/mozza, bell pepper, homemade pizza sauce, spinach, local pastured pork sausage, tomato on top)
Walmart whey (25g) protein shake in 500ml skim milk
1 bell pepper
2 carrots
2T hummus

Snack:
Pre workout shake (creatine, beta alanine and juice mix, mostly)
Banana w/natty peanut butter

Post-workout/supper:
50g protein shake in 500ml skim milk
Ginger chicken (local, free-range) stir fry with green and wax beans, bell peppers, carrots on basmati rice.

Other snack if I feel like it:
Oil-popped popcorn with seasoning and unsalted butter
6-egg (4 egg whites, two eggs) omelette with feta

Not eating anything at the moment because I'm doing a 24 hour fast, but I'm drinking iced rooibos with lemon. And tomorrow morning I'm going to eat the HELL out of some pork belly, double-yolk eggs from the farmer's market and baked okra.

Some of my favorites:

Eggs in a basket (basket made of homemade bread) every morning.

Whatever we had for supper, in a wrap and with goat cheese for lunch.

Dinner tends to be meat/veggies stir fried together with plenty of spices.  Some days Mexican, some days Thai, some days other Asian, some days just spicy.

Favorite snacks:
Hint of Salt Triscuits with goat cheese (I can't have cow dairy :-( )
Almonds
Pistachios
Oatmeal
Dried prunes
Kale chips!  I swear I can eat these by the bucketfull!  They are good for you and pretty easy to make.

Today I whipped up the following for lunch:
Mushroom pie
Potato dauphinoise
Green beans
Along with some homemade icecream and berries.

We had guests over - I'm not normally this extravagant. For a vegetarian Sunday lunch (English tradition) it went down damn well.

Totally doing mushroom pie again. For anyone interested.
Chop and gently fry in a pot...
1x onion
2x carrots
After 8 minutes or so add
3x hand full of mushrooms, chopped into medium sized chunks
Season with salt and pepper
Add 1/4 cup of brown onion gravy
Add 1/4 cup of milk with one heaped teaspoon of corn flour in it
Simmer until it thickens, approx 10 minutes, don't over stir
Add a small cup of frozen peas.

Put it in loaf tin, cover with pasty, bake for 25 minutes

Nothing.  It's 7:45am and I don't typically eat breakfast.

Will live tweet later what I'm eating, apparently.

Dinner was lentils cooked in chicken stock (chicken for lunch, bought 1/2 off, made stock this afternoon). With lentil, onions, garlic, a leftover tomato, some herbs from the garden, and some diced ham (1/2 off too b/c sell-by-date was today).

Wrapped this all up in some tortillas and let the kids/husband demolish it. I am not that hungry - had three of the home-made cookies I made earlier today. I had vegetable soup and threw some chick peas in it (mostly vegetarian myself)

I don't think I've ever had a "lentil."  To be honest, I'm not quite sure what it is.  Ditto another thing I associate with it, quinoa.

Lunch today was our main meal. We had grilled turkey burgers (from the local butcher) with local lettuce on homemade wheat buns (Julia Child recipe).  On the side was a garlicky kale/orzo dish. 

Our CSA is keeping us awash in greens.  We had a green salad for lunch yesterday, Swiss chard with dinner.

It's not slow-carb but when your significant other hands you some fresh baking "this is not paleo" is not the correct answer.

My go-to breakfast is blueberries in Kirkland plain fat free greek yoghurt, topped with a small handful of Kashi go-lean crunch.  Mmm. 

I was watching an online blurb about greek yoghurt, and how some of them are just packed full of chemicals, and thickeners, instead of having more protein, so I checked the ingredients list on the Kirkland plain greek: Milk, bacterial cultures.  That's it!  It makes me love it even more!

If we are supposed to be comprehensive here, I had left over home-made chill for lunch, topped with pico de gallo and parmesan cheese. 

Afternoon snack is frozen cherries with cottage cheese (both from Costco) and a handful of almonds from Bulk Barn.

Supper will be home-made pulled pork tacos from the crock pot (too hot here to use the oven)!

Splurged today and went out.  Tried the local "hot new" burger bar place.  Disappointed.  We do a lot better ourselves at home for a LOT less money.  Got better when I found one last beer hanging out in the fridge (leftover from a party we had a few weeks ago).
