I started off the morning with my favorite breakfast that I’ve been making almost every morning lately. It’s the perfect savory breakfast that is super healthy, hearty, simple, and delicious!
I started by adding about a cup of frozen hash browns to a pan with a tiny bit of olive oil and cooked them until they were crispy. In a separate pan I sautéed crumbled tofu (I add a tiny bit of turmeric to give it some color/flavor), peppers, onion, and kale. At the very end I threw in some garlic and chopped basil for some added flavor and nutrition.
And I don’t stop there… I’ve been packing in even more nutrients by adding nutritional yeast (for B vitamins, iron, & zinc) and kelp flakes (for iodine). I top it all with extra black pepper and some hot sauce for a kick. A dish like this is the perfect meal to start your day off because it’s SO much food, and will keep you full for hours.
Of course I paired it with a mug of French pressed coffee to which I added in some unsweetened soy milk.
What a beautiful Saturday we had up on the mountain! Clear skies, a light breeze, and sunshine! My morning started off with a classic Samantha breakfast.. two slices of Ezekiel bread, one with peanut butter the other with blueberry jelly, a banana, and a cup of coffee. I added some almond milk and a few drops of stevia into my coffee, not sure why I’m still into the almond milk in my coffee considering I’ve been a die hard black coffee girl for the past six years. But maybe times are changing in my morning coffee mug.
After breakfast, I headed over the the farmer’s market to help our dietetics club table. We were there promoting local food, as well as sharing the volunteer work our club is doing throughout the community. It was fun getting to people watch, and listen to the beautiful music that is always playing throughout the market. While there, I bought and munched on some yummy kale!
It’s been too long since I’ve posted a What I Eat In A Day, have you missed them? Today was filled with delicious food, so hopefully it’ll make up for not posting one in a while.
The morning started off with my typical breakfast of 2 slices of Ezekiel bread with peanut butter and molasses and jelly. I paired it with a banana and mug of coffee. Does anyone recognize my mug from a certain TV show??
After breakfast, I headed over the The Children’s Playhouse to give a Kids Can Cook lesson. This semester, I’ve been giving monthly cooking classes for a local children’s museum. Last month, we made green smoothies and this month we made chocolate chip oatmeal cookies (that were also vegan!). The kids are pretty young, so it’s a little difficult to make lessons that are extremely simple and hands on. Cookies were perfect because they got to touch the flour, oats, and sugar. Also mixing batter is always fun! They turned out great, and the kids all seemed to love them!
Today, I started the morning off with the last of my orange juice. Perks of living on my own: getting to drink straight out of the bottle!
While my bread was toasting, and water was brewing for my coffee I had a few sprays of my B-12 supplement and ate half of a Brazil nut as a selenium supplement. Did you know that one Brazil nut has your daily dose of selenium?! Pretty cool!
For breakfast, guess what I had…? You probably guessed right, two slices of Ezekiel bread with peanut butter and jelly with a side of fruit (two peaches, and a banana). For my coffee, I added in some almond milk and a few drops of liquid stevia. I am usually a black coffee drinker, but lately I’ve been enjoying adding a little almond milk into my coffee.
An hour or two after breakfast, I went to a few thrift stores around town. I absolutely love to go thrifting on a Saturday afternoon, because you never know what you’ll find! Also, who can beat clothes for less than a dollar?!
