Our garden is abundant. We have a regular influx of Kale and Zucchini…oh, so much kale! Carrots, onions and other yummy veggies have appeared as well. We have, without question though, been eating a lot of greens lately!
It was filling and super nutritious, containing:
- 1 tortilla
- 2 eggs, scrambled
- 1/4 cup black beans
- about 3/4 cup kale and 1/4 yellow peppers sautéed together
- 1 oz light marble cheddar cheese
- Salsa on the side!
Shockingly, Little Man actually ate it – he loved it :) Although he “loves” everything these days…and….everything is his “Favourite”!
We kept it green the rest of the day, with this amazing zucchini ricotta cheesecake for dinner from 101 Cookbooks. This is, hands down, my #1 Zucchini recipe. I could eat this for every meal, every day for weeks I’m sure. Okay, that might be a *bit* of an exaggeration. But, it is fabulous.
I also made a tasty, and wonderfully light zucchini spread to munch on with rice crackers. My mother in law made this, and I loved it, so I looked up the recipe. I used this recipe, but, added in a bit of Kale, and Dill in place of the parsley (I didn’t have parsley, but don’t really like it anyways). I think basil would also substitute well!
I’ve been feeling under the weather all week, which lead to much less than stellar results on the healthy living side of things. Not surprisingly, eating junk and not exercising actually makes you feel worse when you are already down, tired, and aching all over. So, my focus the next few days is going to be to try to get enough sleep, remove myself from the T.V./living room in the evenings when I’m getting tired (I plan to do something quiet/relaxing upstairs instead), and try to get at least a little bit of exercise every couple of days.
Today, I’ll get plenty of exercise, as D. and I are starting the process of redecorating our bedroom! We’re just painting today, but I can’t wait to see the colour transformation. Little man is going to his best buddy’s place for the day, so we’ll be able to focus and get most if not all of it done in a day. Most of the taping is done already, so we’ll be able to jump right in with the sanding I think!
Before and after pictures to come…
