Brekkie: baked oats and fruit. This is one of my favorite breakfasts. I found this really little baking pan that's just the right size for one person. I put about 2/3 cup fruit in the bottom, sprinkle cinnamon, add 2/3 cup oats and 1 cup water, bake for at 350 for 30-40 minutes while I go meditate, then I turn on the broiler for a few minutes to toast the top. I buy whatever fruit looks good, and cut it up and freeze it. Today's fruit was strawberries, blackberries and bananas. Here's the end result dished out in my bowl.
For lunch I tried a baked plantain for the first time. I just threw it in the oven and baked at 375 for 1 hour because I'm all about taking the easy way. It was kind of dry. It had an interesting taste, sweet and...lemony? New things always take getting used to so I will definitely try this again several times (I'll experiment with cooking methods) and see if it sticks. I also had the veggies I cooked up last night: onion, oriental yam, kale, broccoli rabe, asparagus, mushrooms, beans, herbs from the garden, a little singapore seasoning.
Early Dinner: we had family over for their traditional meatloaf dinner. I had the baked potato topped with a big pile of those veggies from lunch and yesterday, peas and corn, salad. While others ate their cake and ice cream, I had a little of that frozen fruit which tasted lovely. Sure it was easy, but it's only day 2. Temptation doesn't usually hit me until about day 15...
Snack: small baked potato. small bowl of peas and corn.
Exercise: walked 4 miles. meditated 30 minutes.
okay, I promise my future posts won't be so long, because my food is pretty similar day to day.
