SNAP Challenge Day 2
November 6, 2013 § 1 Comment
I was very much looking forward to breakfast. Just the thought of the sweet taste and smell of a banana on a pancake got me in the kitchen. Well, my children got me in the kitchen before that! I just used a simple recipe with some substitutions and so happy that I will make this again probably during the challenge if I have oats left. I have been making blender pancakes and waffles soaking grains for a while, but it was my first time using old fashioned oats and no oil.
My lunch was delayed and I just thought I would make one of my favorite late night bowls when I use to work nights and come home hungry. Simple noodles, eggs and something green would do the trick and that was lunch. But it made a large pot so I ate the leftovers as a snack around 4pm before going exercising.
Tonight I did have to share my stir fry dinner with the family, which was okay by me since it was more than I could eat. I decided not to eat rice or noodles with it, the cabbage julienne was like having noodles and I love the taste of lentil sprouts in a stir fry. I am happy I am growing them for the challenge (see last photo)
I am still missing a good cup of coffee, oh my :(
