What a yummy (busy) week!!
The BBQ last Sunday feels like ages ago, especially now that it can't stop raining here in Toronto!
My favourite BBQ'd veggie burgers, balsamic brussel sprouts, & a sweet potato - classic!
Making dessert on Sunday is now one of my favourite things!! This recipe was incredibly yummy and Joey & I couldn't get enough! Stay tuned for more desserts on Sundays. It might become a regular blog feature!
Asparagus, kale & tofu stir fry over brown rice
I made it a little differently this time around. I marinated the tofu in tamari, apple cider vinegar, sunflower oil & water before frying them up. I added the yummy hoisin sauce along with the veggies and stir fried it all up. This is definitely one of my favourite, simple meals.
The black bean chili from Ultimate Foods for Ultimate Health was so good. Joey proclaimed it his favourite chili!! It was hearty and so easy. I've really enjoyed everything I've made from this book.
I was craving a snack before boot camp last Wednesday so I had a sliced kiwi, blueberries and a combination of pumpkin seeds, raisins, walnuts and sunflower seeds.
It was a great snack! I'm never super hungry after boot camp, so I enjoyed an Almond breeze-banana-almond butter smoothie when I came home.
I love the banana - almond butter combination. It was so hot, boot camp was *tough* and I was so sweaty that night.
I made a little trip to Whole Foods on Thursday...
There's only 1 in Toronto and I find it a little out of my way and a little pricey so my trips are limited! I picked up some soy milk, larabars (2/$3), coconut water, soy yogurt, rice crackers and Free POM. I enjoyed some of the coconut water on my way home from boot camp on Monday.
I wasn't sure what to make of it at first, but decided to finish it and it got better as I went along! Coconut water is like nature's gatorade. It's full of 5 essential electrolytes: potassium, sodium, magnesium, calcium and phosphorous. I felt good after drinking it and it definitely quenched my thirst. (Please note - boot camp isn't getting any easier!!)
On Saturday Joey and I grabbed some lunch after my meetings
My warm brown rice salad plate was perfect and beautiful with all its colours. Since it had been his birthday last week I treated him to some Indian food for dinner.
We shared a chicken dish and some aloo gobi with rice. When Indian food comes to the table, the dishes always look so small, yet there is always too much food and leftovers!! And we came home to find some visitors sifting through our garbage bin...
As cute as they are in the picture, I wouldn't have wanted to encounter them on my own!! I think they were a little sad that they didn't find any garbage...
Check back later this week for my June activity results, plus 4 week progress measurements from Boot Camp!
Happy Canada Day to my fellow Canadians!!
