Food logs

I joined the Engine 2 Extra website and they started a 28 day challenge on Sunday.     I decided to join at the "Fire Chief" level.   I love that--reminds me of being a kid.   Anyway, they suggest tracking your food logs on the blog on their website.  Let's see if I can copy and paste here:
My meals are similar to yesterday and will be similar again tomorrow because I'll be gone again until late in the evening.  However, I love this stuff so it's no problem.   These are my quick go-to foods.
B:  oat/corn grits/buckwheat cooked with some almond milk, water, 1/2 banana, 1 tsp ground flaxseeds, and cinnamon
L:  Jeff Novick curry burger wrapped in collard greens (I call it a collard wrap) with tomatoes and a dollop of home-made soy yogurt;  Jeff Novick potato fries seasoned with cajun seasoning (I used Happy Herbivore's recipe for making your own salt-free and in my case, less hot, mixture!) and topped with another dollop of home-made soy yogurt; salad (lettuce, red bell pepper) topped with 1 tsp chia seeds and mango vinegar.  
D:  1 small baked, then smashed butternut squash, 1/2 banana, splash of almond milk + 1/2 cup chickpeas smashed in, and cinnamon; bowl of cooked collards and onion; same salad as lunch.
Snack:   carrots, sugar snap peas
here's my lunch (salad not shown but see dinner):
Here's my dinner (cooked collards not shown):
Oh, I eat a lot of collards because they are abundant in my garden.  :)

Looks very yummy. How do you cook the collards? Steam? Boil? How long? What pot do you use?

Hi Kristi,

I like well-cooked collards so the pressure cooker works well for me. Everyone has different preferences. Any method would work: steaming, boiling or pressure cooker. In pressure cooker, 5-10 minutes, on stove-top, anywhere from 15-45 minutes. I include onions and sometimes mushrooms. mushrooms add a nice brothy flavor.
