what i ate today – monday 10.27

first day of weekday veg = success!

here’s what they day in food looked like for me:

9:00am – out the door with one slice of toasted ekeziel sprouted grain bread with 2 tablespoons crunchy organic peanut butter. easy to eat in the car on the way to work. (typically, breakfast includes 2-3 hardboiled eggs.)

12:30pm – ordered a greek salad for lunch, no meat, no cheese. it was loaded with lettuce, cucumbers, peppers and onion and drizzled with a greek viniagrette.

10:00pm (a.k.a as i am writing this) – half a slice of pumpkin spice bread. i modified this recipe and substituted 3/4 cup applesauce for the eggs and 3 tablespoons of agave nectar for the honey.

i was worried that i would not feel full, but after ONE fajita, i was stuffed! with a meat fajita i could easily eat 2, maybe 3 and feel as full as i did on the veggies.

here is the recipe for the fajitas:

what you need:

1 pack of sliced portobellos

4 medium jalapenos

1 large red onion

1 tablespoon paprika

1 tablespoon garlic powder

1 tablespoon onion powder

salt and pepper

1/4 cup of water

what to do:

  1. in a gallon ziplock bag, add mushrooms, 2 tablespoons of water, paprika, garlic powder and onion powder. shake and place in the refrigerator for 20-30 minutes
  2. slice the onion and jalapeno (remove seeds if you want it a little less spicy) and saute for 10 minutes on medium heat.
  3. Add mushrooms, stir and cover for 5 minutes
  4. Remove cover and let simmer for 5 minutes. Voila!
