Last night's dinner was simple and got a little help from our freezer.
There are two things I always get if we order chinese food. Steamed dumplings and crab wontons. So unhealthy! Forget the veggies I'm going for the gooood stuff! I've had to compromise a little and those potstickers do the trick.
I made fried rice with brown rice and liquid amino acids instead of soy sauce.
Plus I steamed some edamame.
I loved it, my husband loved it, and the kids gobbled it up!
When the kids went to bed I made some steel cut oatmeal using a method I saw on pinterest,
Basically you bring the water and oats to a boil, let them boil for 3 minutes and spoon it into ball jars. Leave it on the counter overnight. The jars actually sealed themselves which was pretty cool.
This morning I met with my trainer and had a mug of coconut tea and a protein shake beforehand.
I do like tea..... But I really really like coffee. It was missed this morning.
When I got home I made a jar of oatmeal.
After you let it sit on the counter overnight you either put it in the fridge or microwave it for 2-3 minutes. I added almond milk, banana, maple syrup, and almond butter this morning. It was delicious. I've never had steel cut oatmeal before. I love it!
I'm making something on the heavier side for dinner so lunch was light.
Salad with greens, red pepper, cucumber, and french dressing. Plus cheese, crackers, and a pickle.
Dinner is a pinterest recipe too! I am so addicted to pinterest.
