lunch

Sometimes I am really lazy:



















At least I cut up the carrots and celery! (easier to bite).

Breakfast was a housemate smoothie--leftovers from the weekly prep. I also ate a medjool date with a walnut half stuff in it and heated in the microwave. I can't believe I'm saying this but it was too rich and sweet for my tastes (today!). I've eaten mostly salads this week and that must have reset my taste buds. Salads feel just right when you aren't very physically active.

I think I'll have time, energy and desire to make kale & sweet potato sauce tonight--it's easy and I should be hungry. Update: I did make this and boy was it yummy! I added a small leek, and used pignolias for the nuts. And I added mushrooms steamed briefly in the microwave (1 minute, stir, 30 sec, stir). I was sorry I had to share it with housemate!

I looked up that recipe and it sounds great! I'm intrigued by the idea of the boiled peanuts. Forgive me if you mentioned it earlier on your blog but are those okay on ETL since they are legumes? and how do you make them and where do you find them? I've been "cheating" a little with salt free peanut butter which I KNOW isn't recommended. This sounds like better alternative. Thx!

Boiled peanuts (without salt) is definitely allowed on ETL. It's a great source of protein and other healthy ingredients, and doesn't have the acrylamides of roasted peanuts. I think Dr. Fuhrman treats peanuts as nuts, but either way, legumes or nuts, they are good for you.
