Wow, here we are and another week passed. It was a pretty crazy day, not much time for cooking, but I made it work.
Breakfast: “Tofu Florentine” with Field Roast Apple Sage Sausage and spicy garlic jalapeno Dayia cheese on a toasted English muffin.
Stats: 325 calories, 12g fat, 23g protein, 6g fiber, 9%dv calcium, 22%dv iron.
Mya’s day off started with playing Lala Loospy’s in a box! I wish I was nine again.
While I cleaned up from breakfast, I thought I should whip up some of my new favorite dessert/protein bites “black bean brownies”.
Check out these ingredients…1/4c Raw cacao, can of black beans, 1 scoop protein powder, 1 tbs. instant coffee, 1/4 c. walnuts, 1/3 c. coconut oil, pinch baking powder, tsp. cinnamon, 2 tsp. vanilla extract, and 1/4 banana and 1oz tofu as an egg replacer.
Did I mention these are flour free! They make a healthy alternative to regular brownies. They are totally addictive.
I poured that mixture into a lined 8”x8” glass pan and baked at 350 for 40 minutes. They come out soft. Lift the parchment out of the dish and onto a cooling rack. Let cool and then refrigerate. The coconut oil will firm them up in the fridge, but they will still be perfectly gooey and chewy.
Once cool, cut into 16 squares. These are perfect as a snack or dessert.
Stats per brownie. 117 calories, 6g fat, 2 g protein, 2g fiber, 8g sugar.
We were out so long today, I did not eat anything from breakfast at 7:30am until 2:30pm. Starving!!!! I never miss meals.
I came home and we all wanted to eat quickly. So I got some water boiling, heated up some sauce with a bag of Trader Joe’s vegan meatballs. I added TJ’s corn pasta and 11 minutes later, dinner. I love that the corn pasta is gluten free, it has such a great texture.
My bowl was one serving pasta, 4 meatless meatballs and 4oz. sauce. The stats for my bowl: 365 calories, 7g. fat, 16g protein, 6g fiber.
Lastly, a 1/2 bowl of cereal around 6:30 was needed to keep me going. It was a perfect mix of a few cereals and some almond milk.
The busy day came to an end with several cups of decaf herbal tea. Sadly, my day of normally colorful veggies was severely lacking in that area. I can feel the difference. I am making a huge salad today.
Hope you have a great Wednesday!
