So first let me recap my eating from yesterday:
Dinner was a GINORM kale salad beast.
Started out with this:
and had to take off my rings to get down’n’dirty..
So now the fun stuff. Have you massaged kale before? It’s a serious wrist workout! I swear, I nearly gave myself early carpal tunnel this time. But it’s important because when you bruise the kale leaves, they tenderize and lose some of their too-strong flavor (the Hubs described it as ‘gamey’ once… obviously the veggie equivalent though) and the toughness.
I was using some Trader Joe’s Goddess dressing as the lubricant (gosh, this is getting graphic…), and when it was all tender and about half the previous volume, I added a hefty sprinkle of nutritional yeast, half a teeny avocado, a shower of sunflower seeds and generous portion of black beans for protein.
And yes, I ate it all except a few leaves and a tiny pile of beans.
Yesterday was a weird eating day for me. I did not have much opportunity to snack all day, and by the time I felt hungry again after dinner it was too late to really eat anything. Besides, I was quite excited to go pick the Hubs up from the airport– he flew in for the weekend! 🙂
Let’s get on with the day then shall we?
I started the morning with a large glass of homemade cold-brewed iced coffee– SOO GOOD. I will write up a little post on how to do it a little later, as well as the link to the recipe– with a splash of almond milk.
Then, I made an oat mess by mixing around a bowl of raw oats, banana slices, 2% Fage greek yogurt, and a sprinkle of cinnamon and honey. Delish.
We’re changing our internet service today, and we have a few chores to take care of, and then it’s DATE NIGHT! Woohoo! ❤
Questions for you:
Have you tried massaged kale yet? How about nutritional yeast?
